He was there. Through all the good times, and the bad. When my world collapsed and my family passed away; he was there. He picked me up and gave me a reason to keep going. He just never saw that the reason was him.

Thomas
When your best friend starts pulling away, what do you do? When the girl who has always been there is suddenly too busy and the revolving door through my bedroom no longer holds my attention what should I do?

Will Thomas finally wake up and see what he’s been missing all this time? Is it time for this crazy pair to finally take a chance and let their love story happen this Christmas?

I rolled my eyes at him and grabbed my scarf, tying it in a neat knot beneath my chin, and grabbed my coat. I slipped it on, fastening the buttons as I walked into the living area. I worked at a coffee shop, and it was my dream to one day attend an art school. I had applied to one in Paris but I hadn’t heard back yet. I didn’t expect to if I was honest.

“Keep your knickers on,” I teased him. “Has Grinch already left?” I asked, referring to my roommate, Thomas.

He laughed at my charming nickname for him. “You know how he is. He hates Christmas. He’ll never change.” He rolled his eyes mockingly as he led me to the front door.

Thomas worked at a bar with Luke called Dominic’s. He and I had known each other since we were infants, and it had always been him and I against the world. My parents had died when I was sixteen years old, and that had been when I moved in with Thomas and his mother. She took me in and loved me like I was one of her own, and I knew how lucky I was. Without her, I probably would have gone into the system.

Luke held the door open for me and waited while I locked up. “Do you know what you’re going to get for Scrooge?” He chuckled as he exited the building, wrapping his arm around my shoulders.

“I’ve almost finished Thomas’s.” I grinned up at him cockily. “He’s the easiest person on my list to buy for. I know that man better than I know my own name.”

Luke raised his eyebrow at me with a knowing expression on his face.

“Shut up!” I dug my finger in his ribs, already knowing what he was hinting at. “Nothing is going on between us.”

“Right,” he mocked. He looked down at me before he reached down and took my hand in his. “How many times do I have to say it?”

I shook my head at him. “He doesn’t see me like that.”

I saw him like that, though.

I felt like I had been in love with Thomas since our teenage years, and I’d hoped something would happen, thinking that maybe, if I waited long enough, he would see me in a new light and want more.

It had never happened, though. No matter how long I’d waited or how many girls I’d seen him with… I had come to the conclusion that he would never see me as anything other than his stupid, book nerd best friend.

“It’ll never happen, Luke.” I shook my head at him. “So, just let it go, okay?” I looked up at him, wanting to get my point across.

“Fine.” He slung his arm back around my shoulder as we began walking down the street. “What time are you working till later?” he asked.

“I have a late one. I start at six pm and finish at nine, so it gives me a chance to get some shopping done first.” I laughed at him before I reached up and rubbed my hand on the top of his head.

Flakes fell from his hair, and I leaned up and kissed his cheek. “I’ll see you later.” I gave him a small wave and turned and walked away from him. “Tell Thomas to keep me some food.”

Like I said, I knew that man better than I knew myself. He’d probably order Chinese food for himself and whatever female he’d chosen to hang out with tonight. Sometimes I believed Thomas lived in his own little bubble. He could be blunt and harsh a lot of the time and often didn’t have a filter between his brain and mouth, but he had a good heart. Sometimes, though, I wished he could see me for what I was—look at me and really see me: just a lovesick girl in love with the perfect guy. Instead, I had a friend who had a revolving door to his bedroom with a different girl accessing it each week.

I rolled my eyes at myself. Today wasn’t the day for pity parties: today was a day for Christmas shopping in the city I loved. There was no point in wishing for things that were never going to happen.

MY REVIEW: 5 Stars!

The setting for the book was fun. There is quite a bit of humor which really surprised me because I wasn’t expecting it. I won’t go into any details about the story because you should definitely experience this charming book all on your own.

Another pleasant aspect of this book is that the author was a first for me. I will most definitely read more from her in the future. I totally recommend this delightful, whimsical romance with a whole cast of endearing characters with a setting just perfect for the holiday. This will be a re-read for me every holiday season, for sure!



In addition, let me say that this book was a surprise. To be honest, the first chapter with Soren had me downright disgusted. He was a jerk. Soren was an arrogant, selfish, inconsiderate……yep, the list goes on. He was so mean; I didn’t even want to like him. And I worried for the heroine because I just couldn’t see how Soren could be redeemed. I won’t lie, I fought with myself whether to continue reading. It’s not like I haven’t read heroes who were jerks, but Soren was in a league of his own. Because I adored Bridget from the start, I read on. Let me say I am so glad I did. This book was just amazing in so many ways. Of course, there are background stories on both Soren and Bridget which makes them who they are. This book starts out with a serious tone then after a couple of chapters turns fun and whimsical. The secondary characters were a huge part of why I gave this book 5 stars. And the ending? Incredible!

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Holiday with You by Claudia Y. Burgoa

My 📝 Rating: 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


I loved most every aspect of this book. The characters are wonderful, diverse, loyal, witty and all-around lovable. The H/h of the story have so much chemistry and attraction for each other. Their connection is beyond just physical. Both Colin and Audrey were great for each other. They were both what the other needed but didn’t realize it until they got to know each other. The small quirky town of Winter Valley is a place I would love to visit. I’ll admit the only disappointment I had was there were no mentions of how the town itself celebrated Christmas. While we met a few of the citizens; I wished for more details and scene descriptions. Small fictional towns are known for their elaborate schemes for holiday decorating. Even with that small disappointment, I still loved this book very much. And I am hopeful we will see a lot more of the Bradford family. There are several more siblings that need a happily-ever-after.

Audrey and Colin…..
Colin has recently moved back to his hometown after a nasty divorce. Colin, along with his adorable four-year-old daughter, Perry, have settled in and are thriving. Well, at least Perry is thriving and that is all that matters to Colin. After one failed attempt at love, he has no desire to go down that road a second time. That is until a beautiful, intelligent, headstrong woman breezes into town and into his life with a literal bang.

Audrey is sent to Winter Valley by her boss to acquire a property. If she isn’t able to make the deal, Audrey will likely lose her job. Finding the owner of said property is becoming a challenge but Audrey is not going to give up. Fortunately, one gorgeous Colin Bradford is just the distraction she needs. But what happens when Audrey and Colin become too close? How will they make a relationship work when they don’t live in the same state? In addition, what will happen when a secret the town has been keeping from Audrey is revealed?

You’ll just have to read Holiday with You to find out. This is a great book and I’m so glad I got to read it. I absolutely recommend it!

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

#AvailableNow ~ “A Snowflake Christmas” By Author Vickey Wollan, #ContemporaryChristmasRomance ~ @authorvickey @EJBookPromos

 
 
Title: A Snowflake Christmas
Author: Vickey Wollan
Genre: Christmas Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 7, 2020
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but … Dr. Alan Garcia uproots his practice in Miami to Snowflake, Montana, hoping to escape career-ending false-accusations and find a fresh start in the small mountain town. Alan isn’t looking for love, but when Rachel Welch brings her nephew in for an office visit, her neighborly generosity and family-first philosophy moves his heart like no woman he’s previously known.
 
Rachel Welch, a native of Snowflake, has suffered from PTSD ever since the car accident that seriously injured her parents. Dr. Garcia is her best hope to find relief from panic attacks, but one look into his dark eyes and Rachel knows that a doctor-patient dynamic is far from the relationship she wants.
 
With Christmas right around the corner, maybe Rachel and Alan’s snowballing romance will survive Alan’s pride, Rachel’s fears, and Snowflake’s rumors. That is – if spending time together outside of the office doesn’t get them both fired first.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Vickey Wollan caught the writing bug in elementary school, and her thirst for reading novels started in junior high. Although her career included journalistic and public relations writing, she recently jumped with both feet into writing romance stories.

She writes heartwarming, sweet, contemporary romances that tickle the funny-bone and wrap up with an always satisfying happily ever after.

Vickey lives in Central Florida, but her travels inspire her stories. She likes the outdoors and sports so she creates heroines who are strong and multi-talented, but are still attracted to sexy modern men who appreciate the love of a capable woman.

With a background in wellness, she allows her creativity to emerge during a good workout. When not writing, she enjoys reading, hiking through the beauty of nature, or chilling-out with her husband.

She appreciates hearing from readers. Reach out to her at vickeywollanauthor@yahoo.com

Add to Goodreads TBR: Texas Christmas Baby

The series on Goodreads: Corbyn Sisters of Last Stand

SYNOPSIS:

They have more than one surprise in store this Christmas Eve…

Zara Mitchell is about to be a single mother. After finding out her baby’s father lied about everything, she’s decidedly on her own. But when her car breaks down outside Last Stand, Texas, she’s rescued by the most beautiful man she’s laid eyes on. He’s her knight in shining armor, and Zara is starting to believe in fairy tales.

J.T. Williams has a charmed life, or so he thought until his parents’ marriage deteriorated and exposed a half-sister, Amelia, in Last Stand. Intent to make up for his father’s shortcomings, he sets out to meet her but is derailed when he comes across a pregnant beauty stranded outside of town. And when he learns that Zara and Amelia are best friends, he impulsively decides to hide his identity to get to know both women without added pressure.

As Christmas nears, J.T. and Zara find themselves giving in to their feelings. But J.T.’s well-intentioned lie might cost him everything. 

MY 📝REVIEW📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

More romance in Last Stand, Texas! This has been another one of my favorite places to read about. Multiple authors write about the abundance of love and the amazing ambience and setting in this small, endearing town. Each book is an engaging, enjoyable read. Texas Christmas Baby is the second book in the Corbyn Sisters of Last Stand series.

Zara and J.T.
While this book is a stand-alone, reading some of the prior books will give you even more enjoyment. For example, Her Texas Ex, book one in the Dangerous Delaney series, is where the mention of J.T. comes from. When I first read that book, I had my suspicions that we might see a story from him one day. So glad that day came. If you have the time to read that book, you will have an even greater reading experience. Also, there is some closure for Amelia. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

The blurb does a great job of summing up the book. Of course, J.T. is keeping a big secret; that wasn’t his original intention. But because of his growing feelings for Zara, things become complicated. Zara is already mistrusting of men due to her recent past so you can understand why she is guarded. How will she react when she learns the truth?

There is Christmas galore in this tale. There are plenty of visits from my favorite Last Stand citizens. And there is the best happily-ever-after I could have asked for. For both J.T. and Zara. I enjoyed this book very much and, as usual, I am looking forward to more books from this lovely town.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
