Read my Book Review
Release Date: November 7, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance. Holiday novella.
Jill's latest novel encompasses the Christmas season and brings readers a delightful romance that will fill them with cheer! Having read a few of the authors novels, I knew I would enjoy this one- hence why I wanted to read it in the first place.- But this one was much more enjoyable than I had anticipated especially considering it is only a novella! Now, while I wish there was a bit more to the story (who can say they don't want more Jill Shalvis), I felt very content when reading this one and content with how it all played out in the end.
Readers who love a Christmas themed novel, and those who enjoy stories that show the forever kind of love, need to grab this one! I promise, it's a treat and one you don't want to miss out on this holiday season!
Read an Excerpt
At the empathetic tone in Sean’s voice, Lotti’s heart and stomach and head all clenched in unison. “What do you mean you can’t give me what I want?” she asked. “All you have to do is walk away.”
“Tried that already,” he said. “And it was the biggest mistake of my life.” He brought her hand up to his mouth and met her gaze over their entwined hands.
He was looking at her like . . . well, she wasn’t sure what was going on in his head, but her thoughts were racing along with her pulse.
“You’re incredible, Lotti. I hope you know that.” Very slowly, clearly giving her time to object, he pulled her into him.
Her breath caught at the connection and his eyes heated in response as he slid a hand up her spine and then back down again, pressing her in tight to him from chest to thighs and everywhere in between. His nose was cold at the crook of her neck, but his breath was warm against her skin. She felt his lips press against the sensitive spot just behind her ear and she shivered. “You’re trembling,” he said, his voice low. “Are you cold?”
“No,” she whispered. Try the opposite of cold . . .
“No.” Not even close. The way his mouth moved across her skin was making her warm all over. Not that she could articulate that with his body pressed to hers and his fingers dancing over her skin. She was literally quivering as the memories of what it felt like to be touched by him washed over her, as if no time at all had gone by.
Yes, she’d let him think that their time together had sucked for her. But it hadn’t. Not even close. That long-ago night he’d evoked feelings and a hunger in her that she’d never forgotten. “I’ve just had a long day,” she said.
“I know. I’m going to make it better.” He pressed a kiss at the juncture of her jaw and ear before he made his way to her lips for a slow, hot kiss, his mouth both familiar and yet somehow brand-new. She was so far gone that when he pulled back she protested with a moan, but he held her tight, staring down at her with heated eyes. “Just checking,” he murmured.
“That you want this as badly as I do.”
