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.
This is a Christmas novella, something I secretly love. I wasn’t all that excited, as I didn’t really know the hero. I ended up loving this story more than the first book in the series.
Andrew Ross plays for the Chicago Aces. He’s coming home to the family that raised him. He enjoys coming home but seeing Jenna is always hard. He came to live with the McFaddens as a young teen after his parents both disappeared from his life in one form or another. He’s grateful for all they’ve done for him. That’s why he can’t ever have Jenna as his. She’s the daughter. He promised years ago that he’d never touch her. He broke that promise once and guilt has eaten at him ever since.
Jenna McFadden has had a crush on Andrew forever. After their one short time together, she’s moved on. She’s even bringing a boyfriend home for the first time. He’s not perfect or Andrew but he’s safe. When she arrives, all of her feelings rush back about Andrew. Keeping her distance proves more difficult than she thought. Andrew’s always been the one and he’s finally decided to make her his.
Loved it, loved it, loved it! I’m hooked on the series now and ready for the next installment.
