"Maybe This Christmas" by Sarah Morgan
"Uplifting, sexy and warm, Sarah Morgan's O'Neil Brothers series is perfection."—Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author
This winter, ex-skiing champion, reformed heartbreaker and single dad Tyler O'Neil has only one mission—making sure his daughter, Jess, has the best Christmas ever. The fact that his best friend, Brenna, is also temporarily moving into his chalet at the overbooked Snow Crystal resort is a delicious distraction he's simply going to have to ignore. Theirs is the one relationship he's never ruined, and he's not about to start now.
Ski pro Brenna Daniels knows all about the perils of unrequited love—she's been in love with Tyler for years. But living with him is absolute torture…how can she concentrate on being his friend when he's sleeping in the room next door? Then when Tyler kisses Brenna, suddenly the relationship she's always dreamed of feels so close she could almost touch it. Could this be the Christmas her dreams of a happy-ever-after finally come true?"
What I liked about the novel.....
I enjoy this read. I found for the most part it was a good romantic read and once you start reading you will find it hard to put down. I liked how this author developed this storyline about Tyler and Brenna where you will find from the read that both of these people had some personal problems that needed solving. Tyler was a ex ski champion due to an injury, with his ex and daughter. Then there was Brenna who had a troubled childhood of feeling unloved by her mother and how much did this play into her adulthood? Since Tyler and Brenna had been childhood friends would there be any thing between these two? Brenna had always loved Tyler but he really didn't reciprocate at first but later it seemed like when one was interested we find he was afraid to commit and then on the other side would she be willing to settle for part of a relationship. As you read you will see a relationship growing out of a strong friendship they had developed. I will say I did like the relationship between Tyler and his daughter Jess who seemed to brought a lot to the story. I did find this a little puzzling to me. Why was that? This is where I say you will have to pick up "Maybe This Christmas" to see how this author brings it all out to the reader. I will say that these two coming together was a long process, however after being pushed together....well, I will stop here and say get the novel.
I found "Maybe This Christmas" setting in Vermont was the third O'Neil Brothers series that was a good heart warming story that goes very well with the holiday reads. Would I recommend? YES!
