This is a sweet romance that shows how two people, who appear to be completely different, can be attracted to each other and find happiness.

At first glance, Cruz Hunter would appear to be a rebel. He is an artist who loves tattoos. His dream is to open up his own tattoo parlor and pursue his artistic abilities. The town council and others are afraid that his parlor will attract unsavory characters to their small town and sell the building he had been promised out from under him. They sold it to a pastor and his daughter.

Talia has suffered emotionally from the passing of her mother. She and her pastor father are looking for a fresh start in a new town and are delighted with the old abandoned church they were able to purchase. They didn't realize that their dream would cause heartache to another.

One thing that I appreciated in this book was the harm in preconceived notions. Many judged Cruz because of his appearance. He even harshly judged himself. He is a wonderful guy who never believed that he measured up. I loved the message of looking past the outside appearance of another and finding their character and heart.

I enjoyed Stacy Claflin's writing style. She kept my interest and the book moved along at a nice past. This is a clean contemporary romance centered around the Christmas season.
