What a sweet little Holiday story this was.

Jeremy Whitehurst has left his troubled past and bad boy ways behind him in Alabama. Now working as a mechanic in Cottonbloom, Louisiana he lives a quiet and low-key lifestyle that suits him just fine.

Kayla Redmond has made more than her fair share of bad decisions. Getting involved with an abusive man left her hurting and guarding her heart. Now all she is focused on is her future as a bookkeeper. Fate has other plans for Kayla when her new job at Fournette Brothers Designs places her right in the path of the man who saved her from her abusive ex.

With Christmas fast, approaching can these two damaged and weary souls find the strength to take a chance on love again??

I adored this novella. It's SUPER short but packed with sweet moments and tons of feel good moments. Both characters were likable. The writing was fantastic and flowed nicely. It had a nice cast of side characters (this was my first Cottonbloom book, but won't be my last.) I wasn't lost reading this one, but I assume you get more background on these two characters in the full-length novels about the other characters. In fact (IMO) this one would have made a great full-length novel.

My only small complaint is that I wish it would have had a better epilogue. Perhaps we will hear more about this couple in future books? Overall, though, a fantastic Holiday novella to add to your "TO READ" list.

There was nooky, but not as explicit as erotica, but more than fade to black. Does that make sense? *lol*

Soooo... It's super toned down descriptions? Ok, as long as it's not flowery descriptions (i.e putting his steel magnolia into her lily blossoms etc). And I hate partially descriptive foreplay, only to fade out upon penetration. Other than that, I'm sold :)

Ha, no steel magnolia into her lily blossom, just normal descriptions. No "fat cock in her dripping tight pussy" LMAO...

There..."


I don't remember the wording. It just fell somewhere between "fade to black" and "We are auditioning for a porn" LMAO
