Review: The Christmas Dare by Lori Wilde

Kelsey James always played by the rules and look where it got her—dumped and half-drunk in a poofy white dress, her Christmas wedding ruined. Then her best friend talks her into going on her “honeymoon” anyway, daring her to a “Christmas of Yes.” It’s about time she lets loose a little, so Kelsey agrees to say “yes” to fun, to romance, and to adventure! And adventure leads her right smack into the arms of sexy Noah MacGregor.

Noah’s never one to say no to a risk—from leading his NBA team to victory to making Christmas cookies in Twilight, he’s up to the challenge! But a lot has gone on since they were teenagers, and he knows he has to take his time to make Kelsey dare to believe that what they feel is more than just the holiday magic that’s in the air . . .
I sure do love visiting Twilight, Texas. It's always fun to be there. Throughout the years I've loved reading this series and have enjoyed the characters that live there. 

Our visit to Twilight is with The Christmas Dare. I do love a good holiday story and Twilight is the perfect place to spend the holidays. I'm not sure how I feel about being dared into doing something but I really loved the idea of Kelsey being dared by her best friend, we all need a best friend like this. One who really truly cares about us. 

Poor Kesley loves for her mother. She does everything to help her mom with her dreams and gets nothing back from this horrible person. The sad part is she doesn't even see it or realize that she's being mentally abused by her mother. 

The best thing that happened to Kesley is when the man she's to marry turns out gay. You have to ask yourself, how is that the best thing for her. Believe me, it is. 

With Kelsey and her best friend on the run, I mean on her honeymoon, they end up in Twilight, Texas a place that Kelsey knows all too well. It's where her first (and only) love lives. 

Oh, Noah! What a great guy he is. I love that he's so easy going and cares so much about the people around him. The happiness he feels at seeing Kelsey again is so touching. You can't help by just feel. You can tell right away that these two are perfect for each other. 

As the story goes on you really learn just how badly Kelsey's life with her mom has been. You also get pissed at her father for leaving her to live like that. It made it so hard for her to have a real relationship. She couldn't figure out how to put her happiness before her mother's. 

This story has a lot of highs and lows for its characters. You won't want to put it down until you finished it. I really needed to know what happened. So glad I read it so quickly and found out but then again I was sad to be leaving Twilight. 

So, have any of you read Lori Wilde? If so what's your favorite book or series of hers?
