Snowed in with the Grump by Kat Baxter ~ Review



First in Snowed In Multi-Author Series


Snowed in with the Grump by Kat Baxter is the first book in the Snowed In multi-author romance series. The book features a curvy girl, enemies to lovers romance where an in-need-of-a-break heroine gets snowed in with her best friend’s grumpy brother.

Snowed in with the Grump by Kat Baxter is a delightfully steamy holiday short romance between a hairstylist afraid to hope and an FBI agent afraid to speak the truth. It doesn’t help that said FBI agent is also the heroine’s best friend’s sexy-hot brother—the same guy she blames for a bad boyfriend breakup in her past.

Though Jackie and Luca clearly have a miscommunication between them, the author did a great job of not only handling that but doing so in a way that didn’t feel contrived. Instead, it felt natural for the two characters to be on opposite sides of something, despite their obvious attraction to one another. They were well-developed story people for such a short romance, and add in their flaws, insecurities, and Luca’s dirty talk… le sigh.

If you’re looking for a well-written short holiday romance that features a snowed in enemies to lovers scenario, Snowed in with the Grump by Kat Baxter is a great choice to read. I enjoyed it a lot and I’m looking forward to more by this author, and in this series.


RATING: 5 out of 5 stars








I received an advanced reading copy (ARC) of this book from the author, publisher, or publicist. The receipt of this ARC did not influence my choice to review the book on this site. It also did not influence how I felt about the book or its characters, storyline, and overall feel. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. As such, they only deal with what is written on the pages of the book and how what is written and otherwise presented made me feel during and after my reading of the book.

This year, all I want for Christmas is to not see my ex-boyfriend’s wife flashing her baby bump all around town. When my best friend gifts me a week at a mountain cabin, I jump at the chance to get out of Saddle Creek for the holidays. Except instead of solitude and hot cocoa, I find the last thing I expect: Luca Daniels.

Not only is Luca the hottest guy I’ve ever known, but he’s also my best friend’s older brother. Apparently, he thinks the cabin is his for the week. But this is my vacation and I’m too stubborn to leave. If he finds my infectious Christmas joy annoying, then he can choke on a sugar plum! We’ve never gotten along and could legitimately argue about anything. So color me surprised when we’re snowed in together, and I realize the line between love and hate just might be thinner than the stripes on a candy cane.
