For the last decade, I’ve had the same crazy Christmas dream every holiday season.
It’s lovely, happy, sensual, and it’s total bullsh*t because there is no man like my dream man out there for me.
Luckily, the sexy dream only happens once a year, because if it happened more than that, it would be depressing, a constant reminder of what I have in reality.
In real life, I was just dumped by the latest loser in my life, a man who was just using me for my money, and a roof over his head.
Good riddance, right?
But things aren’t really all that simple.
Problem is, I don’t feel like I’m worthy of anything better because I’m a big girl, and I like my food if you know what I mean.
So I made a bargain with myself to stay away from men and dating completely for at least a year to give myself a break, and to try to find my self-esteem after dating a string of men who just didn’t want…me.
I thought that promise I made to myself would be easy to keep, and it was…until I met Jackson Gillette in Galveston while I was hiding out in my beach house licking my wounds from so many bad relationships.
Jackson is a gorgeous, drool-worthy kind of guy. In other words, he was trouble.
Men like him did not date women like me.
But when I realized that there’s so much more to Jackson than the eye can see, do I dare take a chance on realizing my Christmas dream?
After all, he might just be exactly what I want from Santa this year.
Author Note: If you’re looking for a traditional, sweet Christmas romance, you might want to move on. This is a sexy, panty melting, fantastical Christmas romance that’s heavily rolled in sugar sweet enough to satisfy your craving for Christmas cookies, with a big dose of Christmas magic. If that sounds like a great holiday reading to you, then dig in and enjoy!!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Each Christmas season I excitedly add (more than I can read) Christmas romances to my TBR. Do I get through them all? Unfortunately, no. But that’s okay because the ones I don’t get to are usually first on my reading list for next time. The trouble I always get myself into is that I take on more than I can handle this time of year. I’m not only talking about reading, reviewing and blogging. You see, me and my family do up the holiday in excess. I find myself being stretched in different directions to please my family and meet my obligations. That said, I am so happy I had time to read this book now, rather than wait. While many aspects were predictable (and that is not a bad thing here), this book had something more. A premise I have never experienced and for that I commend this author. Of course, I can’t tell you anything because that would be just cruel on my part. I am not a spoiler. Thought I will absolutely tell you I highly recommend this precious, short, sweet and very sexy Christmas romance.
Lane Parker has a unique talent for her storytelling. I enjoyed her writing style and how easily the writing flowed. The pace was so smooth that the end of the book hit me before I knew it. I was definitely not ready to say goodbye to Jackson and Hayden. And hopefully, I’ll be able to revisit with them in the next book which I assume features Jackson’s brother and Hayden’s sister. I will definitely be looking out for that!
If you’re looking for a Christmas romance that is a breath of fresh air, unique and will leave you with a sigh and a smile…..I highly recommend A Christmas Dream by Lane Parker AKA JS Scott.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
