A family crisis brings him home… Just in time for Christmas

Cattleman Callen Laramie has no intention of returning to his hometown of Coldwater, Texas, until a Christmas wedding and a family secret convince him he has no choice. And when he’s reunited with his childhood crush, the girl who’d always been off-limits, Callen knows leaving might not be so easy this time.

Shelby McCall is as pretty as a Christmas snowfall, and Callen wants to kiss her under the mistletoe…and the Christmas tree…and the stars. But once Shelby knows the whole truth behind this homecoming, will their holiday fling come to an abrupt end? Or will she accept the gift of his heart?

Received a copy through a blog tour hosted by TLC Tours for an honest review.


This was a good start to my Christmas cowboy romances! I adore Delores Fossen’s books so I was excited about this one. This book made me laugh and also it has some pretty steamy scenes for our two main characters.

The secondary characters really stole the show for me. I loved Lucy and Mateo and wanted the best for them, I couldn’t wait for Buck and Rosy to get married, and I especially loved seeing all the Laramie brothers connect again. 

Now I’m not saying that I didn’t like the romance. I really enjoyed the storyline between Shelby and Callen, I just didn’t feel like it was anything more than lust. Almost every interaction between that could have been more, was turned into sex. Every time! I would have liked to see them connect a bit more really show that this was becoming more than a holiday fling. 

All in all, we get some good Christmas feels, a wonderful family, and some steamy scenes. I can’t wait to read about Judd’s love story next.

  1. Aww! That sucks that you couldn’t really feel their relationship beyond the lust. I dislike when that happens in my romance novels. I’m glad it was still a decent read for you though!

  2. I always look forward to your reviews as I love finding new romance books to check out. I don’t think I’ve read more than a few Christmas romance books but I’m always on the lookout for more.

    I might skip out on this one though as you said the romance wasn’t that great. I always hate when characters jump right into sex rather than getting to know each other or making an even deeper connection.

    1. Your comment means so much to me! I’m glad you like my reviews. That’s always something I’m self concious about.
      Who are some of your favorite romance authors? maybe we have some in common!
      & yeah, the romance here was a bit dissapointing since there was a lot of lust going on instead of them falling in ove.
