I received this book for free from the publisher (Harlequin) as part of their Bookstagram Christmas mailing.
This was my first time reading Maisey Yates and I throughly enjoyed it. I obviously haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but that did not hinder my reading experience. I was able to read this as a standalone with no problems.
I loved Grant. He was a tall, dark cowboy with a tragic past. So swoon worthy.
Plot-wise, the storyline was pretty good. It was well paced and the romance happened at just the right speed. However, Grant being a virgin was a bit unbelievable and kind of threw me for a loop.
I loved the wintery Christmas spirit that the book had. I could just picture Gold Valley all decorated for Christmas. Also, McKenna’s search for a family and Grant overcoming his grief fit in perfectly with the holiday theme.
The one thing that I didn’t like was that there was too much inner dialogue that didn’t really do much of anything. It got repetitive after a while. It felt excessive and could have been cut down significantly.
Overall, I enjoyed this Christmas themed cowboy romance!
Note: This book also contains the novella, Snowed in with the Cowboy, which I will be reviewing separately.
