Always love a great second chance romance and this one delivered! I wish that we got a little bit more though, I wasn't fully satisfied but I definitely believed in their romance and I just wish I could have more of Selena and Jace. I also wasn't really a fan of the fact that Selena had gotten married in their time of separation and yet it seemed like he was pining for her the whole time. I'm not saying they couldn't sleep with other people after the broke up (it was 9 years, after all) but marr ...more

i literally finished this in 3 hours and loved every second of it. second chance romances are slowly becoming one of my favorite tropes and as much as i love flashbacks of characters as teens i loved the lack of it here.
this is one of those books that keeps you on edge the whole time reading it because of the intense chemistry the characters share.

A Winter Wonderland features a broken-down car, an incoming storm, a hot tow truck driver, and a...fruitcake.
Curious? :)
This story was originally written for the 12 Nights of Christmas anthology for the 2018 holiday season, but I expanded it to give you more of the sexy, feel-good, second-chance vibes. I hope you love it!!

Returning to Sacred Harbor after her divorce, Selena's car breaks down on her way into town. The person from the garage who comes to tow her is none other than Jace, her first love and the man she left behind without a word when she went to college. When Selena receives a mysterious fruitcake which is rumored to bring love into the life of the recipient, Jace wonders if they can have a second chance.

I was expecting for there to be tension between the pair, maybe even some anger or resentment due

A lovely novella with all the festive feels and a second chance romance that will have you rooting for that HEA from the off.

Rebecca Hunter has managed to pack so much into this short tale, the characters have fully fleshed out, believable back stories with family ties, tough decisions and sizzling chemistry. You can understand why they had to part and why they are so right for each other now, I was completely swept up in their world.

Btw, I hate fruitcake but from the moment Jace and Lee (Sele

The magic of fruitcakes and Christmas!

This is a sweet second-chance romance between Selena and Jace, high-school sweethearts who broke up nine years earlier and now find themselves wondering about a mysterious holiday fruitcake and what it portends. I enjoyed the characters, and their story was heartfelt and passionate. It's a quick read, perfect for a cozy winter afternoon. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Just like old times

Selena had to call her ex for a ride when her car broke down in their little hone town. They dated in high school but she left and married someone else.
Now divorced, Jace keeps thinking about her.

Can they navigate their way back to a second chance, that includes his family.

Winter Wonderland is a sweet holiday romance about Selena and Jace and their chance second chance for love. The characters are likable and relatable. This novella is well written, with a car breakdown, a mystical magical fruitcake (that they actually ate!), family, and sweet romance. I really enjoyed this wonderful little holiday story.

I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

Very fun short holiday read about second chances and mysterious fruitcakes. Jace and Selena have a very vivid past but with Selena back in her home town that Jace never left can they reconnect and get back what they both lost. I don't write spoilers so you will have to read to figure out how broke down car, towing company and fruitcake all play a part in this love story.

I never read the anthology version of this story, but this expanded novella was one of my favorite reads of this holiday season. Jace and Lee clearly have chemistry that never left - even after they went different directions - and while I wanted more of their story, this holiday novella packed in quite a bit. I really enjoyed their reconnection, the mysterious fruitcake, and seeing them get the second chance that they deserved. Great, quick read!

Selena is back to her hometown. She and Jace have a past together. Looks like old feelings didn't disappear. Will they get second chance with happiness, maybe with holiday magic around them, they will get HEA.
I enjoyed this story very much, loved characters.

Jace and Selena were in love in high school, but her parents expected Selena to get an education. They sacrificed their own happiness so she could have a good life. She had to leave town to get educated, and 18-year-olds aren’t always mature thinkers, so things didn’t end well for the pair. Selena ended up getting her education and marrying someone else in the ensuing years; however, that marriage wasn’t happy. She is now divorced and back in her hometown, when her car breaks down and Jace answe ...more

Not My Piece of Fruitcake

I found this book a little odd. It is short, so it can be read rather quickly. It actually opens with a fake news article, which I found an intriguing idea. It wasn't clear how it was going to relate to the story, and I will admit that I was a bit put off that there was a misspelled word in the newspaper article. Surely, there are editors at newspapers these days! I am usually more of a historical romance reader though I do read some contemporary romances, especially aro

Selena returns to her hometown and the trip back is not off to a great start when she breaks down. It picks up when her old flame Jace is the one to rescue her.
These two have not forgotten each and it shows the more time they spend together.
Will these two have a chance for romance again.
Quick and easy read. Great for the Christmas hangover and intro into Valentines.

A cute second chance romance for Jace and Selena. This is a quick read but These two had killer chemistry the entire novella! I gave it a 3 only because I felt like the story was rushed and I really wanted more about their past together, their past apart, and their development into their second chance. Overall, it was a good story that I enjoyed and I’m glad I read it!
