I received this book from NetGalley and Harlequin in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Summary:

“Wardrobe malfunction” doesn’t begin to cover it.

With a rip louder than the “I dos,” Hayley’s hideous bile-yellow bridesmaid dress explodes. She’s always had enviable curves, but nearly naked wasn’t quite the look she’d been going for at her ex’s wedding.

She’s rushed from the altar under the best man’s designer tux jacket. Hayley’s expecting a blast of icy disapproval from sexy, sophisticated Niccolò Rossi—his usual reaction to anything she does. What she gets is a kiss that nearly melts what’s left of her polyester nightmare gown.

It’s impossible on a million levels. Exuberant engineer Hayley and buttoned-up lawyer Nico have never seen eye to eye—but skin to skin? Oh, mio… So when Nico shows up at her flat on Christmas Day to give her a fabulous gift—himself—Hayley’s delighted to do the unwrapping. But it’s just a holiday fling. By New Year’s Day, she’ll come back to her senses…unless Nico’s sensual skills tear away all her resolve.

Review:

This was a perfect novella. I loved getting to know Hayley, because she’s not your usual heroine. The book started with lot of drama for Hayley and we got tho see her worst day ever, but at the same time Nico her knight in shining Tom Ford dashed in her way and made it all better. It’s such a sweet romance and the best part for me was the setting, because Christmas is always time for a restart. Hayley needed a new romance and Nico was the perfect guy, he really did open up during their hot nights together.

Now I think we need to see Hayley sister falling in love, or maybe a better explanation about her mysterious past.

Romance Review: Lost to the Desert Warrior by Sarah Morgan

Lost to the Desert Warrior

“Walking into the lion’s den unprotected, Princess?”
For Layla, princess of Tazkhan, her arranged marriage means one thing: a lifetime of cruelty and captivity. Such an unendurable prospect drives her to throw herself at the mercy of Sheikh Raz Al Zahki — her family’s greatest enemy!
Raz demands one thing in return for the safe haven Layla is seeking — this brooding desert king wants to make her his queen! Her freedom might be secured, but now her heart is at risk, for soon she’s lost to the scorching heat of their marriage bed. However, it will take more than fire to thaw her guarded husband.

Another great sold into marriage book, but this one has a few different things than other books, because Layla didn’t accepted the reality and decided to sneak quietly into the night searching for the right person that could save her life and her sister. Her father had just died and she was aware that her life was about to be worse than ever. Her father never treated her all that good, mostly because he never even noted her, but she was aware he was wrong and decided to make things right by marrying the right heir to the throne.
 
Raz was a nice change, because he was a father and a very good one, but he was also trying to save his country from the hands of those horrible people, but Layla actually landed with a nice plan to change things. He was a bit worried but better to accept things and keep a eye on them. I liked the way he handled Layla and the disappearance of her sister, he didn’t trusted her right away, but didn’t make fun of her.
 
This was a nice couple, but Layla is way to trusting for me. Raz could change a bit, but he was still suffering so that I can accept.

Book Blurb:

Love is in the air this Christmas!

Christy was hoping to skip Christmas this year. Her kids have other ideas – they’ve put their dad’s name at number one on their Christmas list. So it looks as if Christy will be hightailing it up to the Lake District to play happy families with her ex!

Snow-capped mountains and roaring log fires – Alessandro’s home is like walking into a Christmas card. Is it really safe for her to spend Christmas with her dreamy, funny – no! – entirely infuriating ex-hubby?

Miranda has completely the opposite problem. Being single and pregnant at Christmas was certainly not her wish come true. She doesn’t believe in miracles, but then resident hunk Jake sweeps her off her snow-covered shoes. Come Boxing Day dare she dream that Mr Sex-on-Legs might be for more than just Christmas?

‘A picturesque and charming tale’ Star magazine on Angels in the Snow.

My Thoughts:


The book shares two stories named after the principal female characters and are set in Lake District. The first one is Christy and she’s struggling with career, husband and kids. The second is Miranda who just moved to the neighborhood and now is having problems deciding which feelings to follow towards Jake.

Funny thing about the stories is that Jake is godfather of Christy kids, so he’s a support character on the first story and finally gets he’s happy ending on the second story, finding love with Miranda.

Christy has been struggling with a job she doesn’t like, a husband that’s always working, two kids, one is almost teenager and worst of all, and she’s only 32, a whole life ahead of her. So the book is around Christmas, the children decided to spend on daddy’s house, but the true, is that they’re meddling to get mommy and daddy together again.

Christy discovers that she can’t live in London, so during the holidays while helping on the hospital she decides to return and live in Lake District once again, and almost everyone tries to help her get back with Alessandro.

Loved this one, some moments was very fun, especially since the kids decided to “help”, but others had the right peace of feelings, love and understanding.

Miranda took me some time to really feel the book. Jake sounds since the first book, like a perfect guy who just wanted one thing from life, find the woman to live and raise kids together; he once was in love with Christy and since them no one, really made him feel in love, until he found Miranda almost dying in the snow on Christmas day. He took her home and fought really hard from the begging until the very end, for her to understand that his feelings were real.

Miranda has suffered a lot in her life and the book explains that really well, but she took a long time to follow her heart. It’s interesting, but in the books I always cheer for the guy to discovers his feelings and in this one I was cheering for the girl, not that I liked her, but I wanted a happy ending for Jake.
