OMG this was a delightfully entertaining read.
Kyle is a self-possessed male with only his well-being on his mind. When he meets Crystal and her daughter Gigi he's a goner right away. His inner animal is on board but he keeps having self-talks that are amusing. The chemistry is there for both Kyle and Crystal, and he decides she's the one and he's going to show her he can be trusted due to her past bad luck with men. Especially when her most recent ex shows up with a lot a crazy ideas and the idiot factor to carry them out.
If you've been reading the series you know people get killed and disposed of in Kodiak Point all the time. But they were bad people. I love the irreverence the author instills in these books while still making me like the characters so much. Another winner from that primo place in Alaska that brings home the true meaning and magic of Christmas.
Damn it, a man had his pride and a caribou a certain majestic presence, all of which could wind up ruined if he abased himself to play a simple-minded reindeer in the town’s Christmas parade.
No way was he wearing damned tinsel in his antlers.
Like hell was he sporting a red nose and pulling a sleigh.
But he changes his mind when he meets the woman in charge of the event.
Single mom, Crystal, is doing her best to offer her daughter the best Christmas ever. It’s their first in Kodiak Point, and she’s not about to let some vain jerk ruin it for her little girl.
If playing dirty is what it takes…then bring on the Christmas games. As Crystal and Kyle butt heads—and lips—they discover more than goodwill this holiday season. They’re gifted with a second chance at love.
