If you're looking for a good read, keep looking because this isn't it.

I regret giving poor reviews, but this was a waste of time. Some authors have managed the poor girl gets rich man as believable. Unfortunately, this isn't one. Btw, how is it that an uncle on his mother's side had the last name as his father?

I was expecting a Christmas story, as the title suggests, but instead got a steamy passionate love story with a very predictable ending!
A disappointment!

I was hoping a more modern story would be a good change of pace from the usual freebies I get. Nope.

Here, we have a poor single mum trying to keep her shit together. Stumbles into a stupid deal to pretend to be a rich guy's fiancée to fool his arsehole father, and the rest is history. He's beautiful but driven. She's beautiful, sweet yet horny, and of course, what home cook isn't qualified to become head chef of a fancy schmancy restaurant because scrambled eggs are the benchmark for success, r

I was looking for a cute Holiday romance.... this more than fit the bill. Catherine, having just lost her job and having a jerk as an ex-husband, gets a chance for a free trip to Jamaica. While there, fate lands her in an agreement with handsome, charismatic Derek. I can't tell you more than that.... no spoilers here :)

Just say that the chemistry between these two is off the charts. I found myself rooting for the two of them and reading as fast as I could to find out what happened... and I was n

Rich boy meets poor girl

Typical romance. This storyline is overdone. A good editor and proofreader would have helped. Even one sentence was written “would have fell”. “Would have fallen is correct”. This book was boring. Even the family name wasn’t correct as the brother of the mother had the same last name as the father. I don’t like giving low reviews but if you want to be taken seriously, don’t pass off sloppy work as a novel. Get a good editor and proofread, then proofread again.

Her daughter is spending holiday with her father , she has no job and her sister earned a 2 week vacation in Jamaica. In Jamaica she runs into a man she'd already seen 2 x's before with her bff.sister couldn't go at last minute. They get along real good and he'd asked her to help him. Till his father said some hateful things and he choose his job and not her. She leaves broken hearted and he shows up the next day......things are back on track for them.

Catherine was laid off from work right before the holiday. With a stack of bills and a young daughter, Cathy wasn’t sure what to do. She was a struggling, jobless, single mother. And her friend kept badgering her to go on a date. Yeah, like that’s the last thing she needed.

I liked how this started, but then it soon started lagging with endless monologues that loses the reader.

I enjoyed the love story. For the most part the romance is believable, but I don’t think Catherine would have left her daughter for two weeks. I could have did without her getting the job in the end because that really wouldn’t have happened.

Awesome book.

This book is about a single mom & a man whose father is pushing him to get up married.The plan they madeto stop the father back fired& they fell in love. How the father handles it is the best part with the suspence to the outcome.

A Great Read!

I loved this book, I like the maturity of the lead characters and the supporting cast. It was a smoothly paced storyline, with a head ending. Looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

A Christmas Love Story that really wasn't very Christmassy.

A great read

I adore this book. The characters are fun, the dialogue flows well and the story is captivating. I fell in love with the characters and can’t wait to read more.

I confess it took me a while to get into this as an audio book but that was mostly because it sounded more like a stilted reading and not a smooth flowing realistic conversation. Having said that, the narrators voice was pleasant, just needs to relax a little and sound more natural. If you are reading the book then it will hopefully be an interesting tale with some great characters and a look at life in a tropical setting.
