Release Date: 15 December, 2016
Description: For her, Christmas has always been about family, which is why it hurts so much not to have one of her own…
It’s Christmas, the happiest time of the year and everyone around Kandy is pairing off. She should be excited for her friends but another year has gone by and she’s no closer to finding her own happy ending. When an opportunity arises to go after what she wants, Kandy grabs it with both hands.
Parker Jones has been in love with Kandy Cane since he was fifteen. Finally having Kandy’s undivided attention is a dream come true and he knows he has to work quickly to get under her skin and into her heart and stay there. But Kandy has a secret, one that could lead to a different kind of connection than Parker was hoping for.
Happy endings can’t be forced, but if Parker can convince Kandy of his love, they just might have a Christmas with all the trimmings.
***I received a copy this book from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review***
I really wanted to like this book. I was originally drawn in by the cover and the description of the book. I have really been into new adult and romances lately, so I thought this would be a really good read. Now, before I get into it, I just want to say that this is not me bashing the book in any way. This is just my honest opinion.
This book was definitely missing a lot. It was a short book, but that’s not why it seemed like things were missing. It seemed rushed. I didn’t feel like I was able to get to know the characters. The story starts and we find out the Kandy has a secret that she was hiding. We find out the secret soon after. The situation between the characters was rushed and very unrealistic. I can say that I always like when a story has alternate perspectives. A lot could have been done with this.
