A California Christmas

 ~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  Up-and-coming TV anchor Emery Bliss can’t imagine anything more humiliating than the sex tape her ex revenge-posted online. That is, until it causes her to lose her job on top of her dignity and self-esteem. Seeking solace—and anonymity—in Silver Springs, Emery isn’t looking to get involved with another man any time soon. But when she’s thrown back into contact with Dallas Turner, she sees something that his many detractors have missed.

Being home for the holidays and his adoptive mother’s wedding isn’t where mountain climber Dallas feels most comfortable. Thanks to his troubled childhood, he’d rather be on a rock face alone than trying to connect with people. Emery, however, makes him want to overcome his past…somehow.

Both Emery and Dallas had been planning on a quiet, solitary Christmas, but the sparks between them are lighting a fire strong enough to last—possibly forever.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  A great read this time of year or any time you need to get into the holiday spirit.  I really liked both Dallas and Emery.  What Emery went through is just terrible and Dallas helps set it all straight while dealing with his own demons.  There are some steam scenes where sparks fly!

Very enjoyable, great characters, fast read - just my kind of book!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I would really like to start at book 1 in the series (even though it is not needed - A California Christmas stands on its own).  There are 8 so far and A California Christmas is book 7.  Oh course the title that caught my eye was The Bookstore on the Beach!  The Dr. Talbot series looks really good too!
