REVIEWED BY Tina Shobe
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Chloe is running her family’s bar. After her Mom passes away her dad turns to the bottle and Chloe basically raised herself. She has put everyone ahead of herself.
Her cousin, Natalia, shows up at her bar with a surprise visit for Christmas. I seriously could virtually see Chloe’s eyes rolling as her cousin comes bouncing across the bar.
The author has a great way of writing that makes you feel like you are right there in the story watching the action going on around you.
Natalia got a ride from a friend, Zane. The attraction between Zane and Chloe is instant. Both try to fight it as Zane knows that Chloe is the type that will want a relationship and he’s leaving in a couple weeks. Chloe had a bad experience in her past that makes her real leary of guys.
Natalia gets everyone is the Christmas spirit with decorating, shopping, getting a Christmas Tree. You can’t help but smile when she’s in the story. She comes across as a very happy person. Natalia and Chloe’s friend, Elijah hit it off.
Even though Chloe knows her friends have their own family’s and her dad is on a trip with his girlfriend she secretly hopes that everyone will spend some part of Christmas with her. She goes shopping and buys presents for everyone. Something she hasn’t done in years. She even plan a meal. Zane suddenly has to leave due to a work crisis and Chloe is alone for Christmas.
I felt really bad for Chloe. She just needs someone in her life that puts her first. Takes care of her like she deserves to be taken care of.
She is abducted by a stalker. What a great twist! Never saw that coming.
This is the first book I have read by Author Renee Leigh and she’s got herself a new fan. This book is really well written. I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down.
