Will working together

…lead to together forever?

Recently divorced, Parker Davis needs to focus on his new job so he can provide a stable home for his daughter in time for the Christmas holidays. The problem is, he’s frequently at odds with his boss. He and Emma O’Connell approach everything differently. Yet he finds her intriguing, and Bluestone River festivities keep pushing them together—often enough that two people at odds could find themselves evenly matched in love!

My Review 
I love a friends-to-more story, especially when it takes place at Christmastime! In The Christmas Kiss, Emma and Parker initially seem like an unlikely pair, but they both have good hearts and care about others. 

I wasn’t sure if I’d like Parker at first. He seemed a bit ill-mannered for my taste, but he soon grew on me. I learned how he is a great dad, wanting to provide stabilization and a good home for his daughter, and how his past shaped his behavior. 

Emma is good hearted and generous, and I quickly liked her. She is also healing from her past and isn’t looking for love.

These two seemed to butt heads, but their attraction was palpable and grew as a slow burn. I’m glad it wasn’t an insta-love type of story. Building tension is so important.

It is so rare that I read a story that includes a main character with a disability. I love the inclusive nature and wholesome romance this author provided. I enjoyed this rich, full-bodied cup of Christmas love.
