BLURB

It’s always been you

Actress Chloe O’Connor has become America’s sweetheart, but back in little Christmas, Colorado, she’s still remembered as a shy, awkward schoolgirl. And there’s no one she dreads (and secretly wants) to see more than her high school crush, Easton McBride. Just one look from the former star quarterback and it’s like she’s instantly transformed from daytime drama queen to tongue-tied teenager. She’s kissed Hollywood actors and famous cover models, so she can certainly play it cool while turning up the heat, right?

After an injury ended his military career, Easton McBride built a good life in the rugged countryside of his hometown. And the last thing he needs is his quiet solitude shattered by a high-maintenance temptress who isn’t anything like the sweet Chloe he misses. While he enjoys the flirtation with this new bold and beautiful woman, he can’t help but wonder whether a kiss could have the power to bring back the small-town girl he’s grown to love.

MY REVIEW

Ok so, Chloe. I had a hard time feeling sorry for her, until about 3/4 of the way through the book. She is a complete Diva and thinks everything has to be her way. If it’s not, she will force it to be. But. She does redeem herself by helping to save Christmas High.

Ahh, Easton. My kind of guy in almost every way. I love how he put up with (and secretly loved) the most thoughtful thing Chloe did. Only one of her redeeming qualities, even though she did it for herself. Ugh. Anyway. Easton is totally the guy I could see myself giving up a life of glam for, if he asked. 😉

The ending was super cute. I definitely ‘awed’ at it. This was my first Debbie Mason novel, and I would love to read more about Christmas. It sounds like an amazing small town, which would have lots of good stories. I’m glad to hear it’s part of a series, all standalones, because Christmas sounds like my kind of town!

EXCERPT

Chloe barely registered what Easton said because a lightbulb went off in her head. Her sister’s old flame was the answer to her prayers. She opened her mouth to lay out a win-Cat-back plan to Easton and inhaled an excited breath. She choked on the Scotch.

“Jesus,” Easton muttered with an irritated look in his sapphire-blue eyes as she coughed and sputtered.  He came down the front steps and patted her back.

She teetered on her heels, raising her hand to get him to stop with the forceful slaps. “I’m okay,” she wheezed.

The man didn’t know his own strength. He was built like the star quarterback he’d once been in high school–thick neck, wide shoulders and broad chest, narrow hips and the tightest behind this side of the great divide. Actually, since he stood in front of her, she hadn’t gotten a look at his behind. But she didn’t imagine it had changed since she’d last seen him naked. His seven-year stint in the military had only served to further strengthen and harden the man.

Her four-inch heels put her eye level with his strong chin; the cleft she used to delight in kissing barely visible beneath the dark scruff. She lifted her gaze to his beautifully shaped mouth; the hint of a bow in his upper lip, the bottom sensually full. His perfect lips flattened. She briefly closed her eyes and released a disheartened sigh.

Easton McBride would never be the answer to her prayers.

Hope you guys enjoyed this tour!

  1. Hmmm. I kinda feel torn. On the one hand, I won’t go actively seeking it out, but on the other, if I do come across it I won’t say no immediately.
    I can’t say if I would read it anyways. Chloe O’Connor just turns me away from the book. Like you said, she may redeem herself but the ultimate goal is about her.
    So I’m torn.

      It was a good book for what it was. I just think Chloe was asking for more trouble than she could handle, and it tilted my view. In that one instance I mentioned, she did do something nice, but we find out towards the end that she did it for herself. So really it wasn’t something too nice. I loved the aspect of Christmas, but I had a hard time liking Chloe.

      Maybe pick one up in the series? I think this is the 6th one? They all revolve around Christmas, so they are standalones.

      1. Hmm if they are all stand a lones then maybe I will be more interested in reading the others.
        If I may take the stab of making a read a like, it sounds like an adult adult Sarah Dessen series?

        1. Kendra Kendra says:

          Definitely! I can see Sarah Dessen in these. Small town, cute romance. Dessen is one of my favorites!
