“…perfect for a quick holiday pick me up.”
~ Under the Covers
As soon as I saw this novella was announced, I knew I had to put it on my TBR. I’ve read the complete Risking It All series and this book is tied to that in the way of cameo appearances, although after reading the book I would say it’s a bigger part of the Almost Royal series as the heroine here is the best friend of the heroine of book 1 in that series. That being said, it can also stand alone and it’ll be the perfect little sampler of Rachel Lacey’s sweet romances.
Mandy and Calvin had one night together during prom where they both decided to lose their virginity to each other. Then never really talked to each other again. This is Calvin’s second chance at seeing what could be there with his biggest crush. He’s a sexy, bearded, kind of mountain man who happens to have a passion for wild animals. Mandy hits a bird while driving on a snowy Christmas Eve and Calvin comes to the bird’s rescue. MY GIFT IS YOU was just an uncomplicated and sweet romance.
If you are looking for a short holiday read, definitely check out this one. While there isn’t much story development that can happen in such a short amount of time, I still liked both of the main characters and found the story perfect for a quick holiday pick me up. Snowy, small town setting, sweet adorable hero, and a wedding at a real life castle (not theirs, by the way)! What’s not to enjoy?

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.
