Yours for Christmas by Susan Mallery (Fool's Gold #15.5)
Step out of the winter chill and into the warmth of Fool's Gold, California, the charming small-town setting for a new holiday novella from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery
Famous former NFL stars don't date single working moms like Bailey Voss. She'll allow herself to daydream about Kenny Scott's muscles and killer smile, but wanting more would lead to post-holiday regret. Then Kenny volunteers to run a toy drive with Bailey, and she learns that he's not just hothe's also generous, funny, nice. The whole packagetantalizingly out of reach.
The ache of past loss reminds Kenny why he needs to avoid getting too close to anyone. Especially to a gorgeous redhead and her adorable little girl. Mess it up, and he'd lose them both. Yet Kenny can only resist Bailey for so long. And as festive spirit spreads throughout the town, he's all wrapped up in Bailey's sweet, sexy kisses and determined to make this the first of many Christmases together
My review: Yours for Christmas by Susan Mallery (Fool's Gold #15.5)
This is one of my favorite Fool's Gold stories. It has the parts I love and none of the parts I am tired of. I love the town of Fool's Gold. How they help each other, they care about each other and those who need a helping hand. It is a town I would love to live in. Small town in California up the near by mountain is ski lodge.
I have been waiting for Bailey and Kenny's story. You know they were going to wind up together. Kenny is so good with Chloe. Chloe has asked him for help a few times.
Bailey works for Mayor Marsha. She lost her husband two years ago while he was deployed. She has a seven year old.
Kenny works for Score. He was a Pro-football player with his two best friends. He has been hurt in the past and guards his heart.
Chloe is seven and a sweet young girl.
Mayor Marsha asks Kenny to help Bailey feel in for his friend with the Toy drive the seven year old girls want to do. Kenny never agrees but he will help. He is attracted to Bailey but he tells her straight off that he does not date single moms. Bailey likes Kenny but knows she is not skinny like the models he usually dates.
I really like how this is a clean read. That their is not the big break up scene with drinks and male bashing party like most of the books have. I like seeing all the old characters back.
One thing that I did not like was that it was a novella and not long like the other books. Though it does make for a fast short read with a good story.
I was given this ebook to read through Net Galley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give honest review of Yours for Christmas.
