Title: Nuttycracket Sweet
Author: Megan O’Russell
Pointe shoes, tutus, and a snowy road trip with the man she hates. What could possibly go wrong?
The plan was simple. Get to Portland, dance The Nutcracker, and don’t murder your dance partner. And most definitely, do not, under any circumstances, fall in love with him.
A snowy road trip strands Elle Grant in a tiny cabin better suited for serial killings than rehearsals for two professional ballet dancers. With no one but the incredibly talented, excruciatingly handsome, and notoriously terrible Zachary Benson and a few taxidermy woodland creatures for company, Elle’s Christmas plans are officially ruined. Can she and Zach learn to like each other enough to dance together? And can Elle get home without losing her heart to the Christmas Cavalier?
Note: I was provided with a free ebook copy in return for an honest review.
Ever wanted to read the cliched hate-to-love romance but didn’t want to spend 200 or so pages reading? Well then this is for you.
Nuttycracker sweet is a story of two ballet dancers who are on their way to perform but get stuck in the middle due to the weather. The airplane turned roadtrip failed when there was too much disturbance ahead with poor vision, and hence they end up in a hunter’s cabin to wait out the storm.
Perfect setting, right?
This story could have been elaborated into a full-length novel but it IS very cliched and I personally wouldn’t have loved sitting through for a simple story.
I didn’t notice the number of pages and hence was surprised at how fast things were proceeding, therefore not liking that I didn’t connect to the characters at all. But considering how short it is, there’s no space for that.
It was okay. I didn’t love it and I’m actually glad it’s short.
