Blurb: The Christmas season always puts a smile on Jenna McFadden’s face. Even though she’s bringing a boyfriend home for the first time, inside she’s dying to see Andrew. Years ago, when the McFaddens took the troubled teen into their home, Jenna had to keep her blazing-hot crush a secret. And now that he’s playing pro hockey for the NHL’s Chicago Aces, nothing’s changed. With his wide shoulders and taut muscles, Andrew’s the most tempting package in the house . . . one that Jenna’s dying to unwrap.
Andrew Ross just can’t make a play for Jenna. Her dad and brothers wouldn’t approve, and he could never betray the trust of the wonderful people who treated him like family when he lost his own. That’s what makes the holidays so hard. Whether Jenna’s skating with Andrew on a frozen pond or sitting on his lap while he plays Santa, she’s pushing all their boundaries—and there’s only so much a man can take. Andrew knows that she’s off-limits. But something deep down tells him that Jenna’s heart is the one prize he simply has to win.
Review: Kelly Jamieson is directly responsible for my ongoing love affair with hockey players, and you know that’s gotta be a stretch since this Texas girl’s never seen a game in real life and wouldn’t know a hockey player from a hoot owl. But in lust am I, and Andrew Ross is one hot ticket. And who doesn’t love a story about longing and love that got lost only to be rediscovered years later?
Jenna had tried to stop loving her big brother’s best friend Andrew, but it just wasn’t happening. Ever since he’d shown up at their house when she was fourteen, tagging along with her brother Connor, she’d been head over heels for him–bad. But he was afraid to push the boundaries with her parents, whom he thought of as second parents after the death of his own, and she didn’t want to make him lose them either. So it was a stand-off that neither could bear to break.
Thank goodness time heals all wounds and sometimes Christmas wishes do come true! This was the perfect holiday story to read for me, and I can only wish it was a movie, complete with the x-rated scenes! You can always count on Kelly Jamieson to do great relationships with plenty of hot and sexy romance. Put this novella on your holiday #wishlist now! Thanks!
