Second Chance eX-mas ~ Spotlight & Giveaway

Ally & Archer.
They were the quintessential ‘it’ couple. Young, beautiful and ambitious. Everyone said they had what it took to make it. That they would last. She had stupidly believed it. All of it.
Hook, line & sinker.
Then he’d walked away and never looked back.
Never knew what he left behind.
Years later he finally returned to the place where they’d grown up. Met. Fell in love. Smiling and looking all handsome with his big strong SEAL body, and turning Ally’s carefully constructed world upside down.
But Archer realized his mistake and though it took some time, he was ready to make it right. For everyone involved.
And Christmas in Blissful was the perfect setting for magic, romance and a rekindled flame.
Can Archer and Ally find a way to let go of the past and reach for a future beyond Christmas Day?

New Release & Review!!! ~ the Mistletoe Trap by Cindi Madsen

BOOK: The Mistletoe Trap
AUTHOR: Cindi Madsen
RELEASE DATE: 16-Nov-2020

ABOUT:

From the moment Julie sees her best friend, Gavin, in the airport, it’s like no time at all has gone by instead of months and months. No matter how long they’ve been apart, their relationship has always been steady, comfortable, and decidedly just friends. Even though their meddling parents have hung what seems like unlimited amounts of mistletoe everywhere she goes this holiday season, Julie knows some things will never change.

Gavin is well-aware his family’s wanted him and Julie to get together since forever, even though he’s been friend-zoned since they could talk—and he’s been happy to play that role. After all, as the new starting quarterback for the San Antonio Mustangs, he’s got enough on his plate without adding romance to the mix.

But between playing elves in the holiday bazaar to nights spent one-on-one watching rom-coms or soaking in their town’s hot springs, suddenly the “reverse parent trap” they’ve fallen into is actually starting to work. But this could be one scheme where letting themselves get trapped might be way too dangerous.

Each book in the Heart in the Game series is STANDALONE:
* The Wedding Deal
* The Mistletoe Trap

Let me just start by saying that I am a pretty big Cindi Madsen fan. Throw in a holiday romance with a friends to lovers trope and I’m pretty much all in.

Julie and Gavin were good best friends in that they didn’t shy away from talking about their love lives and they were pretty much all up in each other’s business which really sold the narrative that they were lifelong besties. Maybe a little too much like besties?

I could see they were attracted to one another, that was pretty clear early on in the story but it was hard for me to see/believe them as anything more. The anticipation of the story certainly was there what with the fling and all the other people involved, but it took so long for the friends to make that transition that it started to feel…childish.

I loved them both and I thought The Mistletoe Trap was a fun story with some super cute elements, but I felt Gavin and Julie were very immature for their ages and careers. That part did make it easier to believe that it took them so long to get together, but it kind of annoyed me. I was very satisfied with the ending of this story, as always.

This is the kind of romance you want to read because you laugh, you cry a little and you get annoyed at the characters when they don’t behave the way you want them to!

#FREE BOOK REVIEW!!! ~ Once Upon a Texas Christmas – Katherine Garbera

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Avery Burton loves her job as assistant to Logan Calloway. A big time Hollywood A-lister, Logan spends all his time on the West Coast leaving her to run his charity in Whiskey River. Staying busy and giving back to the community that is the only real family she’s ever known suits Avery just fine…until Logan announces he’s coming home for Christmas.

Ever since his mother abandoned him as a young boy, Whiskey River hasn’t felt like home to Logan Calloway. Still, he heads home for the holidays, intending to reflect on his career and personal life. When he sees his assistant Avery in his home, Logan begins to realize that Whiskey River has more to offer than just bad memories.

As Logan and Avery spend more time together working for the charity, it becomes impossible to deny their chemistry and attraction.

 

 

This book was a kindle free read at the time of posting.

Once Upon a Texas Christmas was a fun, short Christmas story featuring two people with BIG issues, courtesy of their parents. Logan was the son of the town drunk who became a cautionary tale, leaving him feeling lower than dirt. Avery was the daughter of brilliant scientists who treated parenting like a fifty-fifty task to be handled. So like I said, issues.

But Avery works for Logan’s charitable donation and when they finally spend time together things get flirty, fast. Despite reservations on both their parts, Logan and Avery learn that sometimes chemistry is hard to ignore. They were hot together—really, really hot—but it wasn’t just that. They gravitated towards each other and it was a delight to read their story.

Once Upon a Texas Christmas didn’t have a lot of excess drama which I appreciated because both Logan and Avery were in their own way without anyone else’s help.

Author: Annie Dyer
Genre: Small Town Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 30, 2018
❄️He ploughed a path straight to her heart…❄️
 
Zack Maynard likes to keep things simple in his small town: he runs his care home for the elderly, spends his evenings at his brother’s bar and climbs the hills and peaks of his area. His life is going just fine until Severton’s newest resident opens her hotel, steals his builders, complicates his Christmas and makes him crave more than just her baking.
 
Sorrell Slater thought she’d be starting her hotel with a husband; instead she’s in a new town, with a new business and trying to start a new life as a single woman, and she isn’t entirely sure she can do it. However, Severton isn’t a place that lets anyone struggle on their own, and Zack is more than happy to be her tour guide, making sure that both their Christmases sparkle. And as much as she tries to keep him in the friend zone, his persistent charm keeps ploughing through her barriers, right towards her heart.
 
But Severton is a town of secrets, ones that have been buried beneath the caves and peaks of the area. As independent as she’s become, this time Sorrell might just need Zack’s help to escape something deadlier than she thought a small town could hide.
 
Sleighed is the first book in the Severton Search and Rescue Series.
