I've been intrigued by Rory's story since I met her in The Trouble with Mistletoe. She was presented as someone who had a tough past and because of it, she wouldn't allow herself to feel anything for Max or seem to trust anyone. In this story, it kind of felt like the opposite: Max wouldn't trust her and Rory was kind of trusting and wanting to get to know more of Max. I found that slightly odd, but I was still excited to read their story.

I always thought Max had a thing for Rory. And while he does, he also hasn't forgiven her for what she cost him back in high school. I was surprised at the turn of events this caused, although I expected Rory's story to be darker as it had been portrayed before. But it was sweet how they found forgiveness.

He knew damn well she was smart as hell, she was resourceful, a survivor... She was a lot of things, but sweet wasn't one of them.

The romance was really sweet, which I loved, but I felt like I barely had time to feel happy for them because the story ended. I get this is a novella, but this was shorter than a novella in my opinion. It left me wondering if Max and Rory would last. And there were holes regarding Rory's family and Christmas. I was eager to read about it since it was kind of the point of the story: for Rory to make it to her family's house by Christmas and then the book ended. I felt robbed and it just felt like a rushed story. Again, I know this is a novella, but I've read novellas that give a whole story without leaving things out or leave you out of the loop.

Overall, One Snowy Night was really sweet and cute, but it left me disappointed with the abrupt ending.

I received this eARC from the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.This review was originally posted on Latte Nights Reviews.
