Alex's Christmas Wish is a quick, sexy story that I really enjoyed. Alex is a tough private investigator who has car trouble and is picked up and given a place to stay by insecure full-figured Delilah. The two are immediately smitten with each other, but they have a couple of issues that might keep them apart. Unknown to Delilah, Joe is investigating her ex-husband, creepy-loser-jerk Ray, for embezzlement; and Delilah is insecure and afraid of being hurt if she gets too involved, thanks to her ex. Meanwhile, Ray is about to show up to cause serious trouble.
I have to say that Alex is an easy man to love. He loves a woman with curves, he isn't afraid to go after the relationship he wants after only two days together, and he says all the right things to make a woman feel beautiful. He is such a good (and sexy) guy, I now have to read the story Corinne Shaw wrote prior to this one, Joe's Birthday Girl, about Alex's brother.
I would recommend this story any time of year, not just for Christmas reading. It has heat, action, a great storyline, and it gives me a new appreciation for peanut butter and chocolate. Yum yum!
Private Investigator Alex Flaherty wants only one thing under the tree on Christmas morning--a curvaceous, sexy woman. A lead on the shady lawyer he's investigating wouldn't hurt, either. When Alex is stranded during a snow storm days before Christmas, his wish seems little more than a pipe dream…until fate intervenes.
After a bitter divorce, Delilah Adams is spending her first Christmas alone and wishes for love to fill her stocking. When she gives a ride to a handsome stranger caught in a snow storm, she never imagines his sinfully delicious smile will turn her life around and give her hope for a special holiday.
Alex and Delilah find friendship and intense pleasure in one another…but can the hope of a budding relationship overcome obstacles from the past? Or will the danger that lies ahead ruin Alex's Christmas Wish?
