Saving Grace (Love Under the Big Sky, #2.5)
by Kristen Proby

Sparks fly like snowflakes when a klutzy but gorgeous novice crosses skis with a hot resort owner in this tempting tie-in to New York Timesbestselling author Kristen Proby’s popular Love Under the Big Sky series!

Grace Douglas is on a practice run for her friend Cara Donovan’s bachelorette party ski weekend in Aspen. The problem is, despite living in rugged and picturesque Cunningham Falls, Montana, Grace is the clumsiest person ever born. To prepare for the trip, she is taking lessons at a local ski resort. She just prays that they have an ambulance on standby.

Sexy hotelier Jacob Berkley is ready to play ski instructor, but he quickly discovers that the best place on the mountain for Grace is in the lodge with a hot toddy. Her sense of humor and easy laugh quickly pull him in, and soon he’s determined to help her get off the bunny slope for a fun vacation with her friends. He just didn’t expect their steamy chemistry to trigger an avalanche of desire straight to his heart.

This was the first time I have read anything by Kristen Proby, and I have heard a lot of positive things about Kristen's writing. Even though I didn't absolutely love this novella, I do think I will read more from Kristen in the future. I really liked the plot of this novella and Kristen's writing. 

I really like reading novellas, but I couldn't really get into this novella. In the case of this novella, I couldn't really become attached to the couple. The insta-love vibes didn't really work for me in this novella. I thought the relationship developed way too quickly for the romance to seem believable. I also couldn't connect very well with the main character, Grace. I thought she was charming at first, but she actually became annoying very quickly. I found myself rolling my eyes at some of the things she did and said. She just seemed to be trying way too hard to be cute and flirty. However, I did really like Jacob. I thought Jacob was sexy and just an amazing guy. I wish this would have been a full length book so I could get to know Jacob more. I would like to see Grace and Jacob in another book so I could see their relationship develop more. 

Even though I wasn't a huge fan of the romance as a whole, I did like some of the romantic scenes. Some of the scenes were really sweet or really steamy, which I enjoyed. Grace and Jacob had awesome chemistry that lead to some great banter. I also really liked the setting of this book. The setting was romantic and put me in the holiday mood! 

Overall, this was a fun and quick read. I didn't love this book, but I enjoyed it overall. If you are looking for a romantic novella that takes place in the snow mountains, then this is the novella for you!
