I'll be Home for Christmas by Lori Wilde: Review and Giveaway!

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Christmas in Twilight, Texas, is all merriment and mistletoe. The Cookie Club is whipping up their most festive sweets, the townspeople are scrambling to get their holiday shopping done, and Joe—a hometown guy with a restless heart—is dreaming about the woman he wants to kiss most...

...And who happens to be staying at his sister's place over the holidays, while Joe's sister is away. But Joe isn't quite sure he wants to be a living Christmas present to runaway law student Gabi Preston.

Joe thinks the sassy sweetheart he nicknames "Trouble" won't inconvenience anything but his healthy sex drive. But when he discovers the reasons Gabi escaped from her life, he aches to give her everything she's never had. As the magic of the season draws them together, the gift of love is the only one worth giving…

Goodreads Summary

This is a fun, romantic Christmas read perfect for the upcoming holidays.  Gabi and Joe have a natural, instant attraction.  Gabi is still having a rocky time when she firsts meets Joe and at first there is a lot of friction;  Joe is fighting the instinct to seduce her. This book follows the trajectory of a romance book like the reader may expect.  I liked how much chemistry and spark Gabi and Joe had.  It's always fun for me when the main characters at first don't quite get along, but have to learn how to deal with their differences to get to their attraction.

Gabi's character is interesting, but I didn't particularly want to "be" her or anything.  Joe was the standard hot, intense romance book man.  I love how protective he is towards his sister and later to Gabi.  If a reader is looking around for a romantic Christmas read to snuggle up with during the cold months this is the ideal book!
