Dec 01, Victoria rated it liked it Shelves: It was a cute story that could have rated higher for me but I was never quite sold on the heroine pursuing her sisters ex-husband. I would have felt much better about it if her sister was dead: I also thought the heroine was a bit underhanded with how she dealt with a particular situation at the end.
Both of these things kept me from rating this higher. Still, it was well written and an easy 3. Still, it was well written and an easy book to enjoy. I have the next book in the series already and do plan on reading it. Nov 26, Jae rated it liked it Shelves: I had a bit of an issue with the settings. The hero was once married to the heroine’s sister and the divorce was a bitter one. And now the heroine expected him to get over it and make peace with his ex-wife so that they can all live happily ever after.
Too much for me to stomach in. In-laws are always a no no.
Dec 06, LaFleurBleue rated it it was ok Shelves: This one did not work as well as the previous, as the format seemed a constraint to the story and the ending felt awfully rushed. First thing first, I’m not a huge fan of stories when someone ends up with his former spouse’s sibling, sister of rar divorced wife in this case.
I vurton not like not really knowing what gifft been so awful in the divorce that 3 years later Wyatt still could not date, was obnoxiously grumpy every day all day long. I was expecting a big announcement on this topic but it nev This one did not work as well as the previous, as the format seemed a constraint to the story and the ending felt awfully rushed.
I was expecting a big announcement on this topic but it never came and I just was left thinking burtton had behaved like a self-centered ass for too long to be someone really great. The heroine was a perfect hallmark poster with not one flaw, except maybe she found her butt too big.
And obviously she was not the absolute breathtaking beauty her sister was. One scene when Wyatt and his ex-wife Cassandra put all on the table and supposedly manage to get hift and move to something else felt totally contrived. My eyes ubrton rolling from the beginning to the end, thinking all the previous hatred and hurt just magically disappeared and both magically understood each other.
Nov 30, Maggie rated it really liked it. Loved the dynamic of these two!
Dec 19, Kristen rated it really liked it Shelves: The heroine was simply fantastic and though the hero came across more like a cantankerous old fart than a torture hero, I did warm up to him by the end. This was an angsty but good read. This book is part of the Christmas anthology Holiday Kisses: A Holiday Romance Collection. Jun 26, Dina marked it as to-avoid Shelves: The hero was once married to the heroine’s sister and the divorce was less than amiable.
In-laws falling in love is too creepy for me, especially when the ex is still alive. This story is also available in Holiday Kisses: A Holiday Romance Collection anthology. View all 4 comments. Jan 13, Jamie rated it liked it. A quick bubblegum read. I gave this three stars bc while it was enjoyable it was very predictable. If you enjoy Hallmark movies this book is right up your alley. Jan 28, Paige rated it liked it Shelves: I love the Kent brothers, they definitely deserve to have a full length story about each one and not just a shorten version.

I received it as a free read and it was really my introduction to an author I’ve heard a lot of great things about but never had the opportunity to read.

I read this book while in the car on my way to visit family for the holidays and was able to finish it in rqre 2-hour drive without feeling like I’d missed anything by the brevity of the work. Jaci Burton develops her characters so well in this book that I didn’t even realize it was the second in a series something I don’t normally do until I went to rate it here on Goodreads. It really does stand alone and while the cover is holiday-themed, it’s not really a holiday book.
It’s really a love story that takes place in a wintry wonderland. Love that the heroine was strong without being bitchy and the hero was surly without being an asshole. Will be picking up more of Jaci Burton ‘s works for sure!
