A Bravo for Christmas is no exception. Dare and Ava are awesome characters, Ava's spunky daughter is sweet and very in tune with what love means. Loved the Blueberry Troop scenes, just precious. Ava was pretty set on the "fling", but it was nice to see both of them come around to the love that was there.

Darius is truly a guy that anyone would want to love. He's good looking and good with kids and really just downright perfect. He may have had a bit of a womanizing past, but there's nothing bad about this guy. He's 100 % lovable. In fact, I'd take him if he were a real, flesh and blood male.

Ava is a single mom raising her daughter Sylvie. and Darius is business man and part time rancher. Dare has had a crush on Ava for most of his life. reading these two love story made me laugh and think what is she thinking and I was so happy when she realized that she loved him.. I thought those scenes was some of my favorite. I really enjoyed the book and would really recommend to anyone looking for a good book to read.
A holiday fling? I understand Ava was scared of getting hurt again but what made her think she was wired for a fling. Luckily, Darius was smart enough not to point this out to her. He definitely was smart with taking things slow and building her (and the readers) anticipation. Also, completely adorable as Blueberry King! Great emotional read. ~ Kim
