Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining Rachel's Random Resources for a stop along their current tour featuring another holiday themed release ready for your seasonal reading...or whenever really because who couldn't use a little holly jolly pick me up when the weather outside IS still in fact frightful, just meltingly HOT instead of cold.  Am I right?'s title in the spotlight is a Contemporary Romance newly released via HQ Digital (only yesterday...woot woot!), and it's ready and waiting for your perusal.  Shall we?  Let's!  Ladies and gents, today's book of choice...

About the book...
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… but not for Angie Martinelli…

Having lost her boyfriend, job, and apartment all in the space of a week, Angie has no choice but to leave California and return to her family in New England.

Determined not to let life weigh her down, Angie finds work at the local mall where she worked as a teenager. After an embarrassing run-in with a handsome stranger, Nick, she’s convinced her luck is about to change.

But Nick has secrets of his own… and as the first flakes of snow begin to fall, Angie can’t help but wonder if she’ll ever find love.

Have you ever read a book and you're like....GAH!  I love it!  The cover, the story, this is SO for me...except for this one little thing.  Yeah, SO me.  Case in point, today's featured title.

Let me say this again...I LOVED IT...
Nick was charming without being overly so.  Angie was a sweetheart, yet not over the top.  Together, they were a potential match made in heaven.  From the initial meet cute to their sparkage, the casual encounters to their meaning filled glances, you couldn't help but root for them despite a few glaringly obvious similarities between this and her last relationship. The friends were great, the family not necessarily as much, but the community involvement and charitable work were very much in line with the spirit of the season.  I was full on heart involved  with the story and when push came to shove, I'm glad they were each made of stronger stuff than they appeared because that ending was SO up in the air.  

...except for one little thing.
That one little thing I mentioned, was kind of a combo.  Although I loved the story, I did kind of feel like there was one (or two) many would-they-wouldn't-they obstacles to their relationship...and those very same situations were a tad predictable.  I mean, the moment someone needs help cleaning lipstick off their face from someone other than themselves, you know that's gonna come full circle at some point.  Just sayin.

All in all though, I enjoyed my time between the pages.  It's a sweet and clean Romance perfect for those wishing to indulge in a little holiday spirit sans alcohol or calendar page infusion.  Oh and Nick, you're totally right...Charlie is SO worth holding out for the right one.  ;)
