“Just what a holiday romance should be like!” ~Under the Covers

I don’t know about you, but I like to read holiday romance stories that are sweet and full of awwww moments.  And that’s exactly what I got from this book.  It’s just what a holiday romance should be like!

Cheyenne Jensen recently divorced her good for nothing husband and is now struggling as a single mother of two.  Her ex would be better completely out of the picture, but he’s still around a bit.  When her son makes a wish in the mall’s Wishing Well after “meeting Santa” their life completely turns around.

Her son, Ben, is just adorable.  I just wanted to hug him and squeeze him.  He’s the sweetest thing, and I’m a sucker for a cute kid bringing two adults together.  Kind of what happened here.

Jacob had taken his job as the mall’s Santa on his ill sister’s request, to help bring the spirit of the holidays back in his life.  And meeting Ben and his sister, and then their mom, Cheyenne, was just what he needed.  She seemed to fit him and changed his outlook on life in a short period of time.

It was sad at times to see how much the lack of a father figure had hurt Ben.  He needed attention and love that he never got.  And that’s what he asked for.  A real family.

Short story but very sweet!

I'm an avid lover of books. I wrote my first book by the 5th grade in one of those spiral one subject notebooks. I can't imagine a life without reading, writing, music, and photography. Aside from being an author, I'm a stay at home mom to a bright and bubbly little boy who has now just gone to preschool for the second year in a row.

I'm also a blogger and reviewer over at my blog, Storm Goddess Book Reviews & More. I love to read and share the love of books with others.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

It occurred to me while I shared this review, I never actually did come and comment. I apologize. I’ve been running amok the past few days a bit more than usual. LOL.

Thank you so much for this lovely review! The response has been so overwhelming. I appreciate it more than you could know.
