Short Holiday Romance by New York Times Bestselling Author H.M. Ward
There’s no such thing as second chances, and Brooke would know. This Christmas will be spent alone and celebrated, same as the last. It doesn't matter that she’s a disgruntled mall elf, standing next to a chimney-scented Santa with the most annoying co-worker ever. It doesn't make Christmas more magical. It’s just another day to endure, and the holiday can’t pass fast enough. That is, until her old flame, Chris, spots her.
After taking a picture with Brooke in her elf costume, things take an unexpected turn. Maybe getting through the night won’t be so difficult after all.
This short holiday novella is 75 pages in the print edition.
Christmas by far is my favorite holiday. I think it just makes everything more magical. For Brooke, she needs it. Not only does she have a crappy job as an elf on Christmas but, she has to hang out with her family that night. Which only reminds her of what she is missing...her mom. What Brooke doesn't expect is someone coming back into her life. Someone she cared for...Chris. He shows up while she's at work and wants to take her to dinner. She settles for him going where ever she wants. After a night with her family she takes him home. Where he has a winter wonderland. Complete with a tree and decorations. They are alone and are plagued with feelings. Feelings that Brook hasn't let go of. Can they have a special night? Will Brooke get her man?
This was such a fun little story. I loved the characters. Chris is pretty much one of the best men ever. He is gorgeous, sweet, and fun. He gives Brooke what she needs on this night. Sexual tension is buzzing between them. They have to talk things out! I was like dude, join her in the shower!! Now, that would have solved problems!
The 12 NA's of Christmas have blown my mind so far. This one was awesome and I will be purchasing the rest! It was a quick read and loved it! Novella's are awesome and so is Christmas love stories! Add this one to your collection!!
