Review: I’m going to start off by explaining my rating: the only reason I’ve given this a 4.5 instead of a 5 is because I feel like I there were details missing in the back story (but there was more than enough that the story was coherent) and in saying that, it also felt like there was more to the story after Christmas is finally over.
It was a fun read, the fun and loving dysfunctional family was probably more than anything a reminder of my own Christmas Day lunch, but the Zakrewski family were definitely the heart of the story. That leaves Wake and Cody to be the soul of the story. Best friends forever and only just realising the attraction they’d had for each other since their teens it was fun seeing them try to explain to the family why they took so long getting together for the happily ever after.
However, in saying that, their relationship is really only in its infancy, which is why I feel there is a lot more to be said by Cody and Wake after this Christmas tale.
This is a feel good Christmas story rather than a hot and steamy romance. I think is a nice change of pace for me (or anyone who needs a break for the sexier books) and a relaxing, short read for anyone interested.
