My Rating: 5 Stars…

“The Stocking Was Hung” is the first book I have read by this author but definitely not the last. So up to this point I have already read several Christmas romances. That is actually a good thing, I guess. Since this was a five star for me, it set the bar pretty high. I don’t know how many Christmas romances you read each season; if you allot yourself a certain amount. That said I hope you will take my recommendation to heart and add this book. Not only was it romantic but it was so damn funny. The secondary characters were outrageous.

Noel and Sam…..So we know this is a Christmas romance. The premise of this story is one we have certainly seen many times. However I can’t think of any at the moment; this one is so memorable.

Girl meets boy in a bar…..

Girl convinces boy to come home with her and pretend to be her boyfriend. She just can’t disappoint her parents again…..

What follows is fun and romance and family bonding. The dialogue at times was outrageous. I kept thinking, “What did he just say?…….Oh no she didn’t just say that!”

Sam is a marine. While waiting for his connecting flight home he ends up at the airport bar. It is here he meets Noel. Not only do sparks immediately fly, but from the moment they interact, the fun and witty banter begins.

Noel is on her way home to spend Christmas with her family. She recently lost her job. Shortly after that, she walked out on her boyfriend when he tried to propose. Noel dreads going home now and listen to how disappointed her parents will be with her.

I’ll say it again…..loved this book! Sam and Noel keep the pretense of their relationship status up for as long as necessary. However, at some point during their days together the pretense has become reality. Unfortunately they are both afraid to admit their growing feelings for each other. But as usual the shit hits the fan. Will Sam and Noel admit their true feelings? Will fear and pride get in the way? You’ll just have to read this wonderful book for yourself. And if you do, I promise a journey full of crazy fun, laughter and romance with the perfect happy ending.
