Thank you NetGalley and Source Books Casablanca for the Review copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Uh, so the fourth book in the series. The prior novels characters are included quite often.
Zack has come back from the war and has PTSD. Stephanie is a firefighter who saved these two kids she wants to adopt. They meet and have a connection. There’s a bad guy who’s trying to hurt Stephanie because of her saving the kids. This book just seems rushed. The two meet and go on a few dates. Then suddenly they are in love and living together.
Stephanie keeps being told she can’t adopt the kids because she’s single and works in a dangerous job. Zack is still having bad dreams from being at war, but being around his family and Stephanie makes it all better? Okay then.
Also the entire Garrett family is so annoying. They are so happy and in love all of the time. And they all really love Christmas. I was being hit over the head with those points repeatedly. Also the subtle references to God and Amen all the time were obnoxious.
There was nothing special about this book or the romance. You could guess what was going to happen. Insta love is lame. Just like this book. I would not read the other books in this series or anything else by this author. It’s just not for me.
It’s rare I rate a book so low, but this one wasn’t it. I am always devastated when a cowboy romance, especially a Christmas one doesn’t hit the spot for me. I still have a lot of cowboy romance on my tbr so I’m aiming for better next time.
Until I rant about books again,
