Maybe This Christmas

Maybe This ChristmasTyler was a champion skier but his career ended when he was injured in a jump. He is at home helping out the family and his close friend. Though when his daughter starts to play matchmaker with him and Brenna, Tyler will not be able to ignore his best friend anymore.

Brenna has loved Tyler from a very young age but she knew that he would never reciprocate those feelings. She had long ago learned to live with the disappoint but when she moves in with Tyler things will start to change, and Brenna will have to be brave and tell him how she feels.

Maybe this Christmas is the third book to the series O’Neil Brothers by Sarah Morgan. I really loved this book. For me this was the best book out of the three. I loved the book because it took two best friends and gave them a chance to find that happy ending they deserve.

I loved Brenna. She was a very confident woman on ski’s but with confrontation she becomes a shell of herself. That was all because of a bully that really screwed up her self esteem. You wanted her to break out of that shell and tell Tyler how she really felt. Now Tyler I liked a lot but he had screwed up. He wasn’t taking a chance on love. You wanted to shake him for not going for Brenna especially as you knew his thoughts were not brotherly. Though I will say that the ending more than made up for any mistakes that were made by Tyler.

Jess’s mother, Janet, was a piece of work. She was pretty horrible and all due to jealousy. I wanted to hate her and I pretty much did. You can understand why she did what she did but Janet went about it the completely wrong way.

As I said above the ending was perfect, and it was a wonderful way to finish the novel. I wouldn’t say the ending was corny, I thought it was beautiful. The romantic in me was very happy when I turned the last page of the book.

Suddenly Last Summer

Suddenly Last SummerElise Philippe was the chef and Snow Crystal and loved her job. She also loved the family that had taken her in, saved her from her past. Elise thought she was safe but she will be wrong as a one night stand will turn to more and that will have her scared.

Sean O’Neil did not do relationships. His job was his life and that was how he liked it. Sean will find himself being dragged back home when his grandfather falls ill. Though this time Sean will not find the task too difficult especially with Elise near.

Suddenly Last Summer is the second book to the series O’Neil Brothers by Sarah Morgan. I really liked this novel.

Elise I really loved. She was a character who lived life, had passion but behind those smiles was a very scared and damaged young woman. I hated what had happened to her and how it was effecting her still. I liked that she was able to live again with Sean as he tried to get past her barriers. Then there is Sean who was mister unavailable all the time. I liked how he started to change to be a man who cared for more than just his job.

Its funny with how the novel starts off with Elise and Sean are so alike with their personalities, both having a relationship phobia. They were the perfect couple as things were kept light and without complications, but then something changed and feelings started to intrude upon them. And I liked that Sarah Morgan did change them but it was not an overnight change, it was very much a gradual change.

The other characters of this O’Neil family were great. I loved the stubborn grandfather, Walter. All he wanted was the best for his family but he just couldn’t express his feelings that well.

I can’t wait to read about Tyler in the third and final book, which I will be reading next.

Sleigh Bells in the Snow

Sleigh Bells in the SnowKayla Green lived her job. She threw everything into her work especially over Christmas when visiting family was not possible. Kayla will get a new client  and she will go over the holiday break to meet them. Kayla will be all business but that will be difficult with the O’Neil family.

Jackson O’Neil needed to find a way to help his family business. His solution was to hire Kayla Green who would find a way to promote their business. Jackson did not expect to feel something towards this woman but he knew that it should not be ignored.

Sleigh Bells in the Snow is the first book to the series O’Neil Brothers by Sarah Morgan. I liked this story. It definitely had that Christmas feeling which will warm your heart. Though I will say that it was a little cheesy with some of the things that were said, but I also wouldn’t have the book without those parts.

Kayla works all the time to help her forget about the lack of people in her life. I hated that Kayla didn’t have a family she could truly talk too like Jackson had. It will make you mad when you find out how her parents treat her. But I liked that she will get a chance at a family again but this time with Jackson. Though her character is too afraid to take that chance, at least in the beginning. So then there was Jackson. I liked his character. He was hard working and determined to make his family business thrive again. I also liked that he was kind which showed when he interacted with Kayla.

I am reading the second book next.
