ARC Review: Kiss Me This Christmas by Cynthia Eden
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…absolutely nothing. Because he had no idea that he was my true love. What a jerk.
Noelle Lennon has been in love with Brady Breckridge for as long as she can remember. A sad, unrequited love that causes her nothing but trouble as she pines over her brother’s best friend. Now the gorgeous, muscled, secretive special ops bane of her existence is back in town, back in her life…and because a few dangerous incidents may have happened recently, Brady is suddenly declaring himself her personal protector. So unnecessary. Also…so strangely hot.
On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me…too much temptation to handle.
Brady thinks Noelle is in danger, so he vows to stand between her and any threat. Full disclosure? He’s been obsessed with Noelle for years and learning that she’s in danger, that she could have been hurt or killed while he was a continent away…that truth has rocked him to his core. Brady knows he has to fight for the woman he wants, and what better way to win her over than to use the magic of Christmas in his battle? Christmas has always been Noelle’s weakness, and he is not above using that weakness to his advantage.
On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…a final chance at love.
Brady will keep her safe, and he’ll charm Noelle into falling for him. His plan has to work because Brady can’t imagine his life without her. But as the nights grow colder and the fierce desire Brady feels for Noelle rages ever hotter, he knows that his control won’t last long. He wants one thing for Christmas this year…just one thing…his true love. And he will do whatever it takes to win Noelle’s heart.
As always I love reading Cynthia Eden. Her stories always make me feel happy. She writes wonderful characters that make you want to know their stories. Add that to it being a Christmas story and I'm in heaven.
I think you'll really love both Brady and Noelle. They are so perfect together even if their timing isn't the greatest. Thankfully it's Christmas and they finally get it together. Or at least they are trying to.
This is a very quick read and their romance happens quickly but in the scheme of things it doesn't they've known each other for a very long time and have cared for each other. You don't have to wonder how they feel about each other because they both share their feelings with you right away and also pretty fast with each other.
The mystery part of the story is pretty good too. It keeps you wondering throughout the story and has a great ending to it. I think I'd love a tiny bit more about the why part but it doesn't hurt the story not knowing.
I so love that Brady knows Noelle so well that what he does for her at the end of the book makes it even sweeter. He gives her something that her heart always wanted, well two things. I also think you'll love the interactions between Brady and Noelle's brother. So funny at times. If you are looking for a fast-to-read Christmas story then this one is for you. Have any of you read her?
