Women, men, stray dogs—everyone's looking for love this holiday season. Sometimes all it takes is a LITTLE CHRISTMAS JINGLE to get into the spirit. . .Kat Saunders doesn't believe in miracles—though she sure could use one. She's devoted to her veterinarian business, and all she wants for Christmas is for her practice to include a no-kill shelter. But amidst all the holiday hoopla she forgot about getting the required permits...and time is running out. Just when Kat fears her dream career is DOA, a to-die-for handsome detective shows up at the vet with a desperate puppy. Could it be that Jack Donovan—otherwise known as Mr. December on the Sexy Public Servants Charity Calendar—is the answer to her prayers? He agrees to help Kat with her legal needs, and she will do whatever it takes to express her appreciation. But could this Man of the Month also end up being Kat's true love for all days? A kiss beneath the mistletoe may be all it takes to find out. . .
When I started this book I was a little worried that it was going to be a insta-love kind of book and it actually was BUT even with the insta-love I thought this book was adorable and it took me a couple chapters to realize just how much I really love this book and the characters.
Jake and Kat are just to cute together. With a sort of arrangement to help him get his mom off his back and for him to help her save her shelter they work together but next expected to fall completely in love. Now I am not a fan of insta-love but I really like how it was done in this one. It was instant but it took sometime to build up and not that annoying type of build up for me it actually worked. For most of the book I just wanted them to have sex already the tension was there but it wasn’t overly steamy.
This had all the elements that make a great romance novel with a nice touch of Christmas Magic. I adored his family however I was hoping for a bit more Jingle the Dog. I understand he is what brings them together but he is sort of the background. However I still enjoyed this book immensely, really great read for the holidays or any day really 🙂
This book honestly started at a 3 star when I noticed the insta-love but as I kept reading I realized how much I really loved this book and the characters and by the time this was over it was a solid 4.5 for me
