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.

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.

Instant Attraction by Jill Shalvis

When tragedy strikes Katie revalates her life. She wants adventure and to feel more than being an accountant. She takes the job in the wilderness as an office manager. She wishes upon a star for a night of sex which went along with her new self and she will get her wish in the form of Cam Wilder.

Cam Wilder is now back after a year. He has given up woman and is still badly hurt but soon things are going to be turned upside down when he meets Katie. Soon he wants to get her in the sack but when the option of more comes around he flees and doesn’t know what he wants.

After reading one of the books by Jill Shalvis I found her writing fun to read as she incorporates her characters to be witty, funny and sarcastic. The characters in Instant Attraction are no exception. Katie and Cam fight battles between each other which will wind them up on a bed.

Instant Attraction is the first book in the series Wilder Adventures. The three brothers will be the focus of this series and their sex appeal to the women who happen to land in their lives.
