Review: Confessions of a Chalet Girl by Lorraine Wilson

Confessions of a Chalet Girl
by Lorraine Wilson

Publisher: Harper Impulse
Pages: 94
Format: eARC
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Verbier. Exclusive Swiss ski resort and the winter playground of the rich and famous = every chalet girl’s dream!

Good for:

Maximum time on the ski slopes – and in the bars at night!

Looking for flings – or looking for rings!

Super hot snowboarders such as Luxury Chalet Experiences owner Scott Hamilton…

But not for Holly Buchanan. This accidental chalet girl won’t drink, can’t ski – and isn’t there to hook up with any man who’s only interested in making her another notch on his ski pole. Or so she thinks!

Scott’s living life to full, both on and off the piste, and Holly can’t help but find his attitude just a little bit infectious… And the hook up? Well,she’s going to have to confess that one night with her boss just won’t be enough!

So pack your salopettes and pour another shot of J├Ągermeister, it’s time to hit the slopes.

Kritters Thoughts:  The first in a series and I was approved for it awhile ago on Netgalley and decided to give it a try and if I liked it was going to continue on with the series, spoiler, I didn't love it.  

This was a romance novella and I will say that the biggest reason why I didn't fall in love with it because it felt rushed, it felt like a lot happened and spiraled out of control fast.  I think for me, I don't love romance books that are of the novella length because I think the author has to go at a high speed from the beginning and the reader feels like they are holding on for dear life.

The characters were just ok.  I think it was hard for me to get attached and get excited about the journey when I felt so rushed from the beginning.  I just couldn't seem to root for them when it seemed like they met and instantly started making out.  I like a book where they meet there is some back and forth and maybe a few interactions before they are taking clothes off.

I actually loved the setting and would love a full length romance book that takes place in a chalet in Switzerland, it seemed like the perfect setting to fall in love!  

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
