To college student, Katie Brandt, ‘Home for the Holidays’ sounds like hell. When her parents separated, their holiday traditions shattered like a dropped ornament. What could be worse than celebrating Christmas with her suddenly single mom and mom’s new boyfriend?
Alex Walker, an engaged 20-year-old, dreads going home for his own reasons. He has a daunting task ahead of him and wishes he could skip the holidays altogether. So when a friend of a friend needs a ride north, Alex finds that having beautiful Katie seated by his side proves to be just the distraction he needs.
A simple ride home for Christmas turns into a nightmare when light snow rages into a full-scale blizzard. Katie and Alex find themselves stranded, and a vacant cabin becomes a haven from the storm.
Under different circumstances, time alone with Alex would be the ultimate Christmas gift, but Katie knows Alex is engaged and she must hide her growing attraction.
However, Alex harbors a secret that just might change this holiday from the worst Christmas ever, to the best.
Angie J's Review:
I received this book for an honest review.
I love this author..snickers...well cuz my maiden name is Stanton soooo of course I love this author.
I met her and read her Jamison Collection and fell in lvoe with her. So when the chance to read another short story of hers came about, I jumped.
This story is a sweet in and outter as I call them. They are sweet, quick, happily ever afters that I like to read when I need sweet and syrupy. I am in no way being rude about this story but I just love the sweet, young love in the story.
This is a sweet story about a couple of collage kids going home for Christmas to face family drama. Katie is dealing with her mom's new "not boyfriend" while Alex is dumping the fiance...the lying, manipulating fiancee Trina. The two get caught up in a bad snow storm and end up staying together for 48 hours in a cabin to ride out the weather. They develop feelings and kiss a few times. When they are rescued neither wants to leave but they know their "time is up"......wanna know what happens???? well then real the story sillies!!!
