Sometimes all it takes is a leap of faith for Christmas to work its own magic in BLAME IT ON THE MISTLETOE
’Tis the season for small-town Missouri boutique owner Brooke Abbott to get crafty. Much as she adores making art for art’s sake—decorating windows, designing ornaments, crafting the perfect present for under the tree—this Christmas she needs the gift of good customers. Lots of them. Sweet Opal Studios will go under if she can’t do some serious business before the New Year…and she has no time to lose. What Brooke needs is an honest-to-goodness miracle. Instead, she finds a burglar lurking in the back room of her shop. And here she thought the holidays couldn’t get any worse!Or maybe things just got a lot better. Turns out the burglar is none other than Alex Coleman—local bad boy slash legendary heartthrob, childhood best friend to Brooke’s older brother, and…future landlord? That is the question. He’s come home for the holidays to see his grandmother, make peace with his distant mother, and settle his grandfather’s estate, an estate that includes the building that houses Sweet Opal. What he never expected was to bump into a grown-up Brooke, whose spirit, charm, and irresistible good looks give him pause. Should he go back to Oregon as planned, or give small-town life a chance? The only thing Alex knows for sure is that before he walks out that door, he’s going to get Brooke beneath the mistletoe, where anything can happen…
This was a really cute holiday reads. Brooke is a shop owner starting out on her own making and selling unique gifts. I kind of wanted one of her necklaces they sound really cute. Alex is back in town to pay his respect to his grandmother now that his grandfather has passed away. Alex just so happens to be the bad boy in town, at least a long time ago he was. Then BAM Brooke almost kills Alex for breaking into her store and it’s a super cute love story that is steamy, adorable and has the best ending.
I really enjoyed this book, the characters are amazing and I LOVE them together. They are so cute how they get together and when a huge misunderstanding threatens to tear them apart I wanted nothing more than for things to work out for them
These were super cute characters that pretty much had me thinking 4.5 from the start. The steamy scenes were good and the relationship was adorable. This is a great for the holidays or anytime. Totally recommend 🙂
