Felicity Evans and Harry Walsh have been best friends forever, but lately, Felicity has noticed the looks Harry has been giving her. And she's going to do something about it. Sex solves everything, or so she hopes. But she never knew Harry was a virgin--until now. Being snowbound in a Vermont cabin is the perfect opportunity to take things to the next level . . . and perhaps dare to lay her heart out on the line.

I scooped up this free Kindle book because of the friends to lover trope and the virgin hero. Harry is a beta hero and a total nerd. He’s an accountant by trade who wears bowties, and he’s a 29-year old virgin. Unfortunately, the story was underwhelming. When the blurb mentions “sex” and that the hero is a virgin, I expect some deflowering to happen. But it never happened, at least not on the page. I would have gladly traded the epilogue for at least one sexy time scene. Or have an epilogue that takes place a year or two later, instead of 35 years later. Because of the lack of intimacy, I really didn’t feel any chemistry between Felicity and Harry. While It Was Snowing started off in the right direction but ultimately it fell short.

  1. Yeah with a line line "sex solves everything" I can see why you'd expect some sex! Too bad the chemistry is off as well :/ I'll pass!
