…”Oh what fun it is to…” read a heartwarming and witty tale of a cowboy with an overabundance of Christmas spirit determined to get the woman of his dreams to say, “I do.” Okay, so maybe Joaquin Solas is going to be extra good to even get Savannah Wilson to give him the time of day, but their sizzling sexual attraction is undeniable. She just has other things on her mind and refuses to be sidetracked by the cowboy who believes in the magic of Christmas.

Jenn McKinlay’s THE CHRISTMAS KEEPER is sexy, sassy and humorou

I received a digital copy of this book from Netgalley for review purposes. Thanks!

I thoroughly enjoyed this swoony holiday story! And thank goodness there wasn't any rod wrangling in this one! Oh, plenty of smexy times, but that awful reference was not included!

The Christmas Keeper by Jenn McKinlay is a festive read that will get you into the Christmas spirit. This contemporary romance is both sweet and spicy. The main male character is a Christmas-loving cowboy who stops at nothing to get the woman of his dreams.

Jenn McKinlay gets an A+ for writing a sweet, well-paced romance. I didn’t think this author could top the first book in this series, but she has done it! This is a feel good story that I recommend and will reread during the holiday season. ...more

I enjoyed this romance. I received this for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. Just a little bit too much sexual content for my preference and not for the under 18 readers. There is a bit of action and lots of emotion. Might want to keep the tissues handy. Deals with several issues like loosing love ones and letting go of those close to you. A nice read with a bit of steam.

“The Christmas Keeper” by Jenn McKinlay is a charming, lovely romance novel.

I loved this book. It was a true romance. Savannah and Joaquin were about as compatible as chalk and cheese, but things change. Hiding out in the Smoky Mountains trying to get over a disaster in her chosen field, Savannah meets Joaquin who owns a stable in town. She only has eyes on returning to New York, while he knows that she is his other half. Sounds easy, right? Nothing is ever easy in a romance novel by Jenn McKinlay. The dialogue will keep you on your toes and you will soon be taking bets ...more

Joaquin and Savannah do not see things from the same lens, or so everyone thinks. She is trying to get back to her city life and fast paced career after coming to help a friend. He is trying to keep the family ranch business going and continue to keep his kid sister safe and happy. Can the Christmas season bring about more miracles this year? Or are these two destined to just burn hot before burning out? Featuring plenty of humor and heartfelt moment, a great follow up to The Good Ones in the Ha ...more

I really enjoyed the pacing of Joaquin and Savannah's romance and fell in love with them as a couple but I am utterly and hopelessly in love with Joaquin!! He's charming, sexy, persistent, protective AND HE LOVES CHRISTMAS!!! Really, he's basically my dream man.

Even though he was overly protective of his sister, it made sense and, despite his anger over her decisions and path, he never overreacted in a way that went too far...until he did. The conflict of the story was mild but the timing was l

I didn't care for this one as much as I liked the first one in this series. However, I did get teary-eyed at parts, which shows how great the writing is. I liked the characters. I just felt that some parts of the plot were too predictable and other parts were too unlikely. I look forward to reading more by this author. Her books are some of my favorites!
