The Christmas season always puts a smile on Jenna McFadden’s face. Even though she’s bringing a boyfriend home for the first time, inside she’s dying to see Andrew. Years ago, when the McFaddens took the troubled teen into their home, Jenna had to keep her blazing-hot crush a secret. And now that he’s playing pro hockey for the NHL’s Chicago Aces, nothing’s changed. With his wide shoulders and taut muscles, Andrew’s the most tempting package in the house . . . one that Jenna’s dying to unwrap.
Andrew Ross just can’t make a play for Jenna. Her dad and brothers wouldn’t approve, and he could never betray the trust of the wonderful people who treated him like family when he lost his own. That’s what makes the holidays so hard. Whether Jenna’s skating with Andrew on a frozen pond or sitting on his lap while he plays Santa, she’s pushing all their boundaries—and there’s only so much a man can take. Andrew knows that she’s off-limits. But something deep down tells him that Jenna’s heart is the one prize he simply has to win.

Thanks always goes first to NetGalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
Ok if the fact that it is almost May and I am reviewing a book that took place in Christmas doesn’t speak to the fact that I WAY… WAY behind on my reviews, I don’t think anything does. But I digress I loved the fact that this was one of those, have been in love with them my whole life, but family obligations have prevented me to go for it, kind of romances. It was hard to see Jenna with someone else not only as feeling it from Andrews perspective, but as the reader as well. It made me crazy to watch her try to be with someone else, try to act like she hasn’t be in love with Andrew for so much of her life. But I will say that I understand why it needed to be this way. Though if they weren’t so stubborn both of them it might have been resolved much earlier then this. I mean I can see why words spoken by her father to Andrew when she was just a young girl could have him thinking that he would hurt her and her family if he went for it, but it didn’t have to be that way. If he would’ve just tried sooner… like when they were in college. But in the end everything works out the way it should and was always meant to be.
I really liked this book and give it 4 high sticking kisses…
