About Snowed In With the Firefighter:
Dr. Melody Mayberry’s life just took a turn that’s left her questioning everything. Where better to hide out than the remote family cabin in the mountains? The last thing she expects to find there is her swoon-worthy brother-in-law, the one man who may have more baggage than her. Finn Matthews is not ready to face the fact that the recent injury he sustained in a fire may have ended his firefighting career. He’s not interested in sharing the cabin with anyone, let alone Melody, and their family just texted with yet another unwelcome surprise—they’ll be there Christmas Eve. To keep their meddling family at bay, the two team up to fake a little holiday cheer. But between ridiculously competitive Monopoly games, marathon Christmas decorating, and a storm that strands them together with nothing but a fire and a warm couch, they realize something major—their fake holiday cheer isn’t feeling so fake anymore, and that’s something neither of these two Grinches expected…

I am very picky when it comes to romances that don’t included any physically intimate scenes and one of the authors that I find writes it without me realizes that I’m missing that steam factor is Victoria James. Snowed in with the Firefighter is a new release in her Shadow Creek Montana series. This can be read as standalone because I enjoyed myself without having read any of the other books in this series. I was however left with an itch to go back and read others from it in the future.
This book follows OBGYN Dr. Melody who decides to spend the holidays at her sisters cabin after having something happen at work that threw her off her axis. She didn’t plan on her brother in law’s brother being there when she arrived. Finn has been hiding away and recuperating at his brothers cabin for the past few months after an accident on the job as a firefighter almost cost him his life. They are both dealing with their own traumas and when their family decides to descend on their time away they decide to pretend at being happy and being together. As they Christmas up the cabin and get to know each other the fake cheer becomes real. But when Melody’s real life comes calling will she walk away from Finn or let him stand by her side.
“I came here trying to escape life, but you are the most life I have ever experienced.”
I loved all the tropes this holiday romance had going on- high school crush, injured hero, forced proximity, fake relationship, and snowed in ! They were all executed well with Victoria James strong writing. I enjoyed both main characters. Finn was grumpy but no matter what couldn’t stop himself from being kind and caring towards Melody. Melody had a boat load of emotional problems because of her horrible mother and it’s a miracle she as kind of a person that she turned out to be. I loved the friendship they grew between them and the way they supported each other. This is a romance but the steam level is very low, all that happens between Finn and Melody are some passionate kisses and some snuggle time. Yet I still felt like there was great chemistry between the two, and I was hoping for them to find a way to make it work.
Snowed in with the Firefighter by Victoria James is a sweet contemporary holiday romance filled with self reflection, family meddling, Christmas trimming, snowman building, and couch snuggles. (less)
