This Christmas, all I wanted was to wallow in self-pity until the woman I thought was the love of my life could explain why she left me at the altar. Instead, my buddy, Zach forced holiday merriment on me. I thought it was going to be a tinsel-laced nightmare... until his sister, Alexa, showed up. Turns out, she grew up into a gorgeous present I was insanely t

Crap on toast! Sterling breaks the chain, charters the course and conquers the passage.

4.5 Stars. Holiday books are not usually my type of favorite reads. Why? No clue. Neither is those Hallmark movies. Yes I know, hang me up now lol. But with that said, I may have to give holiday books a second look.
From Ms. Sterling comes Drew and Lexi's story. We meet Drew right after he's been dumped. And in grand fashion I might the freaking ALTER! Ouch right, cept he's more broken up about the expense lol. The bad thing, she's not the only woman to have ever have left him. Lexi has

You know when Christmas is coming when Hallmark Christmas Airs on TV and when you get to read a good Christmas Romance. BACK TO YOU THIS CHRISTMAS is just that! This book is just one of those that you can cuddle up under the blanket and read from cover to cover and come out at the end of it with one of those secret smiles that everyone wants to know Why!

And lets be honest who could resist a cover like that!

There are thousands of amazing authors out there just waiting to be discovered. They say to never judge a book by its cover, but I had no idea who the author was. Presentation is a big part of what makes the story. I will admit I saw the cover and just fell in love with it. I read the blurb and thought to myself, “I want to read it”. I did. In one sitting. This 6 star story was much more then it’s amazing cover.

Alexa is working as a photographer in Europe, she misses home. Things have not worked
This was the perfect read to get you in the mood for the Holidays !

The story was a sweet and one that had a really great cast characters and all about a second chance at finding happiness as well as love.Drew and Alexa were floundering a bit due to their love life being on the frizz and among other things but, returning home again for the Christmas Holidays is just what each of these lost souls needed to mend their broken hearts.

I have to say that we loved the family rituals and the memories tha

Such a heart-warming holiday read from S.L. Sterling!

I discovered S.L. Sterling's not long ago, and when I found out she was releasing a holiday story, I couldn't wait to read it. There's just something about her writing that lures you in, and after reading the blurb for Back to You this Christmas, I knew I was going to be in for a complicated situation.

I don't want to compare Drew and Alexa's story to one of those cheesy Christmas movies because it doesn't even come close. But, what I will say

Back To You This Christmas ARC Review
From the gorgeous book cover to the wonderful story telling by S.L. Sterling this is a must read this holiday season. Also if you love all those romantic Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel this is like that but very mature 😉😉 Nothing like a hot, steamy romance to get you into the Christmas spirit.

Alexa is lonely abroad. After some complications and her losing her job she is ready to pack up and head home to see her family for Christmas and possibl

Brother's best friend is one of my favorite tropes and this one was absolutely wonderful! Alexa has had a crush on Drew for years. Drew has been left at the alter with no idea why. He goes with his best friend, Zach, back home for Christmas and sees Alexa again for the first time in years. They have immediate chemistry and start spending time together. Their story is full of intense chemistry, shared memories, love, steam, drama and a beautiful HEA. I have only read 2 of S.L. Sterling's books bu ...more

I found this book amazing with great word building making me feel apart of the story and watching it unfold in front of me. A definite must read for any fan and I can't wait ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Drew and Alexa were so good together. Both had some major’s issues going on with their lives – Drew was left at the altar by his girlfriend of 15 years and Alexa was dumped and fired by her boss/boyfriend. They both are now at home basically licking their wounds. The more they are together; they start to develop feelings for each other. Will they be able to overlook their issues with past relationships and work their way to a HEA?

Wow, I love a good Christmas love story and this was like no other.

Drew was everything you would want in a man, and Lexi was off travelling the world.
Family always come together for Christmas and Lexi and drew come face to face after living there seperate lives for years.

I loved everything about this story, it made my heart sing.

Christmas +Love=Amazing.

S.l. sterling is a new author to me but I'll definitely be checking out what else she has, this story was wonderful.

Back to you this Christmas is a wonderful, Christmas romance! This brother’s best friend romance was very enjoyable! The characters (Drew, Alexa, and brother Zach) were the perfect combination of family and friends. I loved the backstories of both Drew and Alexa as well as the storyline that gives them their happily ever after! This is a kind of like a Hallmark Christmas movie with snow-melting heat! Really loved this one! Author SL Sterling threw down all the feels in this one! LOVED IT!

I love S.L. Sterling's stories. This is my first time choosing a Christmas story. This book was like a hot, sexy, steamy Hallmark holiday story line that is not found on TV. This story made me cry, laugh and want to find me a man like the lead guy Drew. Christmas was the background to this wonderful romance and brought everyone together in the story. I was not able to put this book down.

Fast-paced steamy holiday read. After being dumped Drew just wants to be left alone for the holidays but his best-friend Zach won’t let him. When he sees Zach’s sister again, sparks fly but what will happen when his ex calls. Entertaining read with plenty of drama and great chemistry, a sweet holiday read. I liked it.

Holiday love

Lexi returns to her hometown, feeling lost and unsure about the direction her life has taken. She hasn’t seen her parents or brother Levi in a while, but she wasn’t expecting to also see Drew, Levi’s best friend, who was jilted at the altar six months prior. She’s always had a crush on Drew, and now that she’s all grown up Drew can’t help but notice her as well. They finally give in to their feelings but what happens when Drew’s ex unexpectedly comes back? This was a good, holiday re

Nice romance.

This was a nice romance. Alexa was so stubborn. Drew already had a past hurt from when he was six years old. Then to be hurt again by his dad was awful. Being with somebody for fifteen years and then walking away and not explaining what happened was mean. Alexa was just drifting and really wanted to go back home to her family. Glad they discovered they had things in common and stayed together. Loved Alexa's family.

Great Christmas novella

I enjoyed Drew And Lexi’s romance. They were both great characters and their relationship moved from friendship to love without them losing the friendship. Lexi’s parents and brother were great additional characters and they portrayed a wonderful close knit family.
