A big thank you to NetGalley and Wild Rose Press for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This is a novella so its very short-53 pages. This is a quick, nice romance. The characters are just nice people. Very enjoyable. 3 stars
Thank you for letting me review this book! I truly enjoyed reading it. I was so engaged in the story and characters, enjoyed the storyline throughout the book. It kept me reading until the end!! I would highly recommend this book!!
This is a short (53 pages) contemporary romance that comes with a pretty high heat level. Not a ton of it, but enough to make you sweat a little. Clay comes back to his small hometown to help his folks out after his dad breaks his foot and can’t work the Christmas tree farm. Though he loves being there and helping out, he can’t wait to get back to Atlanta and his work as a computer coder. What he doesn’t count on is Shelby Turner (or her young daughter). The two have a hot fling – and that’s all it’s supposed to be – but things don’t turn out that way. This is a cute story with some heat and HEA that will leave you satisfied. Pick it up for a quick afternoon read. Disclosure of Material: I received a final and/or advanced reader copy of this book with the hope that I will leave my unbiased opinion.
