KISSING SANTA (A Christmas Street Romantic Comedy Novella #2)

It was supposed to be just an innocent kiss at a charity kissing booth—but it turned out to be fireworks.

‘Volunteered’ to dress as Santa, firefighter Zeke Pepper is blown away by the kiss and feels he may have met The One, but school teacher Hannah Cooke is still trying to win back her high school sweetheart Jackson.

When Zeke runs into Hannah on Christmas Street, they make a deal: In exchange for him making her ex jealous at a New Year’s Eve party, she agrees to go on three dates with Zeke.

It seems like her plan to win Jackson back is working perfectly—but Zeke has other plans. Could she be falling in love with the wrong firefighter?

The first book was MUCH better. I enjoyed Kissing Santa, mainly because of the hero, Zeke. But I had major problems with the heroine, Hannah. She’s hung up on her ex and quite frankly treats Zeke like crap as a result. On top of that, she has this crazy notion that fireworks – aka real passion – ruin a relationship and she’s stuck on it. Pushes Zeke away because of it.

Finally she’s a drama teacher and has an incredibly inappropriate relationship with her 9th grade students. She talks to them about her relationship problems. They are at her house talking “girl talk” with her about the men in her life. I’m sorry, but as a teacher this REALLY bothered me. You can have friendly relationships with your students, but they are not your friends. That’s a line that you can’t blur. I guarantee that had she been a male teacher this would have been obviously problematic. But it is for female teacher too. So yeah that bothered me, a lot.

A cute story, but didn’t live up to my hopes after the first book.

3 stars Just Okay

About Berls

Michelle adopted me as part of her blog when I decided to close down my blog, Fantasy is More Fun. The blog was dying, but my love of reading and the blogosphere was still strong as ever - so I found my new home here at Because Reading!

I'm not just a book lover, but a one time author (that hopes to be more in the future), wife, and step-mom to the craziest, sweetest 17 year old on the planet. I also have the privilege of teaching Kindergarten. I love what I do and you can expect it to bleed into my posts. Teaching is a big a part of me as my family and reading. So grab a glass of wine and chat books, blogging, and family with me!
