This holiday season, there’s more than gingerbread in the oven.
I was always a type-A kind of girl— and that’s exactly what got me into trouble with Sterling Ahren.
Having a baby before thirty didn’t work out, so I took some time off to sort out my life. Sterling’s my new landlord… and he doesn’t plan anything.
He’s a billionaire playboy who can’t stand the holidays. A recluse of the worst kind, Sterling makes Scrooge look like a generous soul… except Ebenezer was never this sexy.
He doesn’t want a family— until the night we have a spontaneous one-night stand, and forget to use condoms. I can’t have a baby with a disorganized, free spirit like him. Between my overprotective brothers and his crazy fans, I already know this isn’t going to work out.
Except Sterling isn’t willing to let me go. He wants me home for the holidays… and this is my last chance to make a Christmas miracle happen.
One thing I know for sure: when Sterling and I collide, it’s going to be anything but a silent night.
Funny, touching, and delightful, this smoking hot billionaire holiday rom-com by Claudia Burgoa will make you feel the magic of Christmas.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
While I have previously read a couple of books from this author, I didn’t read the two families whose books led to this interconnection. Once Upon a Holiday is a standalone novella. I did not have any trouble enjoying the book although I had no prior knowledge of their two families. I must add, though, that I am definitely intrigued enough to read those books.
June is an independent, successful business owner. She has a large, loving, but meddlesome family who she adores. Unfortunately, June feels lonely. There is no significant other. June doesn’t care as much about a relationship as she does, having a baby. I don’t want to give too much away regarding that aspect of the story.
That said, June flew into town to spend Thanksgiving with her brothers and the rest of the family. While there, in Colorado, June has a plan. And not even the most handsome man she has ever met will get in the way of that plan.
Too bad for June that Sterling does much more than get in the way. In the beginning of the book, I wasn’t sure how I felt about Sterling. He wasn’t friendly. In fact, he was bold and brash and rude. But there was something about him that I felt paved the way to his current lifestyle and behavior.
In the end, this was truly a beautiful story. Both Sterling and June learned to trust in love and each other. In addition, I believed their story. I felt it and the love they shared. The author did a great job at putting words to pages and giving me the insight I needed to enjoy this book!
This was an enjoyable read. Who doesn’t love a story that involves a Scrooge finding love and laughter?
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
