On the Flap
Samantha Dixon is about to confess her most secret, romantic Christmas wish to Santa. Heck, what’s she got to lose with her disastrous romantic history? Like that player from her horrible blind date last week arranged by her mother. Only guess who’s Santa?
Rico del Toro loves women. So one bad date with the beautiful Samantha in a string of many, ahem, successful evenings is no big deal. But when a friendly favor playing Santa unexpectedly lands Samantha on his lap for a romantic confessional, he’s intrigued. He’s never heard a woman open her heart like that before.
But if this Santa wants a second chance, he’ll have to rethink his womanizing ways and convince her that he is the perfect package.
This story had me cringing one moment and laughing out loud the next. Samantha, a girl down on her luck in the love department, is set up to go on a date with Rico by her mother. The date ended in disaster leaving her feeling not only hopeless but also like a failure. This causes her to make the biggest Christmas wish/confession of her life to Rico dressed in Santa's clothing.
I wanted Rico to succeed in winning her heart but he was breaking mine with his cluelessness. He definitely was not your typical romance hero. He was a player on a mission to reform himself all for one woman, Samantha. His poorly executed efforts all came from a good place. It made for some laugh out loud moments. My favorite was when he read romance novels intending to use them as an instruction manual but ends up a fan. Gotta love a man who reads, romance especially.
This book has it all humor, romance and hot scenes. A great start to the holiday season.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
