Can't Wait is sure to put its readers in an early, holiday spirit and I have to admit I adored this novella nearly as much as I did Caleb and Summer. I am a new reader when it comes to JenniferRyan, but I think I have missed out on so much! I absolutely was thrilled with the way she penned the romance in this novella to the point that it really doesn't get any sexier than Ryan's novels!
The romance was perfection. It was cute, sexy and humorous. This novella contained moments of heartwarming laughter, sexy moments with a cowboy and an ending that reminds us that with a little patience sometimes those that we are waiting for will come to us.
Most of the time I do not read Christmas novels because they tend to be sappy or are holiday romances that have just been repeated. But Can't Wait really stood apart from other holiday reads that I have read. Ryan really allowed the romance and the chemistry to shine throughout the pages. This was such a light and breezy read. It was actually fun to be a part of Summer and Caleb's story.
Summer, is my favorite character in this book. She is a woman that knows exactly what she wants and she really made the effort to make Caleb see that they belong together. Of course Caleb knew that he and Summer were a perfect match, but I respect the fact that Caleb's bromance with Summer's brother stopped him from pursuing Summer at the very beginning. You have to love a cowboy who is a little old fashion because those are the best kind!
If you are a reader that is looking for a merrymaking read then Can't Wait is the perfect novella!
