Baby it’s cold outside…but things are about to heat up.
I missed the last bus to my sister’s for Christmas, and now I'm stranded in a bus station—in the middle of a blizzard—with a giant package covered in naughty wrapping paper.
Then he shows up: Kalen Welles, the football star from my high school fantasies—and offers me a ride.
Just when the car is getting cozy, the roads get shut down due to snow.
Luckily there’s a nearby cabin where we can hole up for the night.
A warm fireplace, cozy blankets, pent-up longing we both spent years ignoring… maybe I’ll be able to unwrap Kalen's big package before Christmas morning.
But when the snow clears and the ice melts, will the former football star and the shy nerd finally get a happy ending?
Unwrap this sexy holiday story from Opal Carew!
Kalen was the high school football player that was popular. Holly was the shy, slightly overweight girl in high school that had a crush on Kalen. Years later, they both run into each other at the bus station. Due to circumstances, Holly now needs a ride to her sisters house and Kalen is more than happy to help her out. There's a snow storm and these two get stuck overnight at a cabin.
Now I have to say, I did really like this couple. The beginning of the book was great! I'm totally invested in these two, but then they decide to act on their attraction while being stranded at the cabin and this is when the story just got really silly for me. I'm going to try and keep this PG.
You see, Kalen has a problem. He's known for having quite the big package. Poor Kalen has women flocking to him wanting to experience the ride he can give them only to have most of the woman back away before the deed is done. Apparently ladies, it can be too big. But don't worry, Holly is up to the challenge.
Now, this would have been a really cute Christmas novella if we didn't have to focus so much on Kalens big package. To me, that just made the whole story silly. It was probably what the author was aiming for so if you go in with that mindset, you'll enjoy this. I personally would have loved this story if the "big package" was a bit more believable.

Fun holiday romance
This was just downright sexy and hilarious, in all the most perfect ways. It starts with a bang - with a "big package" that is dropped off by the ex-boyfriend. This package is just the best thing ever - in all the wrong ways. I was cracking up every time it was brought back into the story.
Full of great opportunities for our characters to re-connect, a snowstorm and a cabin are the perfect place to get it (and I mean all of it) done. There's some fun toys and lots of great one-liners. But in the end, it's still a really great romance. Just enough comflict to make it a worthwhile read, but lots of hot smexiness to make it all better.
