4✨s – Christmas, insta-love and a hot dad, what’s not to enjoy? While I did think this one went a little warp speed, it seemed to work okay with the Christmas theme with miracles happening and all that. Brennan was taking a walk with his dog in the park one day and saw Scott and his daughter Lexi playing. Interested, he went back the next day to try to make an approach. Not in a creepy way, it was cute and goodness knows I’ve done the same thing, only at a grocery story with a hot bag boy LOL Its cute and only slightly creepy but Brennan made up for it by at least acknowledging that fact. Bonus.
Scott is lonely but at least he has his daughter, with his parents gone and no relationship with Lexi’s mom, he was going to be alone on the holidays. After one cute date with Brennan, he gets invited to Christmas dinner with Brennan and his family though he’s not able to make it, of course Brennan brings Christmas to him. The only thing I wasn’t big on, was their hookup, I mean kinda hot, but kinda cringy at the same time. I’m all for dirty talk, the dirtier the better but I just didn’t see Scott as the take charge kind of guy and I had to skim passed some of his…..foreplay. I think I even said, Bahhhh at one point lol
Still though, it was a very cute, very short insta-lovey romance. I wouldn’t mind reading more about this little family if there were ever another book about them. I just hope Scott tones it down a little in the bedroom, or at least works on his dirty talk. 4 stars from me!
