I think the cover of this book beautifully reflects the fun and festive nature of the story. This is a delightful second chance romance where high school misunderstandings stopped the two getting together but now, years later, is their chance – if only they dare take it!
Olive wasn’t a svelte cheerleader in high school, but she still had a major crush on the seemingly out of read Hank who was a hunk. She’s changed her eating habits and is now a curvy but slim yoga teacher and studio owner. She’s determined not to eat sweets to maintain her new image – but the ones now being created and sold in the candy shop across the road from her studio are so tempting! Mind you, so is the candy shop owner, the still delicious looking Hank. Olive doesn’t appreciate the temptation provided by the man or his produce and is determined to have his business closed down to take temptation away. Hank, however, has other plans which include putting all the sweet temptation he can to get Olive to give him and her a chance at romance!
This is a delicious novella with just the right combination of ingredients to make it a sweet, festive treat. It is a quirky, fun read that put a grin on my face. It has laugh out loud moments as well as some seriously hot attraction and action. I didn’t like some of Olive’s anti-Hank tactics but she did put things right in the end, so, like Hank, I’ll forgive her. If you’re looking for a festive romance to put you in a good mood and get you laughing, look no further!
A Christmas novella where everyone gets their just desserts.
Olive had a major crush on Hank in high school. She was the too-smart, slightly chubby girl who gawked as Hank ran track and made all the cheerleaders swoon. After high school, the two went their separate ways. Olive opened a yoga studio and swore off sweets while Hank travelled the world. No problem, right? At least there wasn’t a problem until Hank moved back to town and opened a candy shop across the street from Olive’s studio. Now, Olive will do everything she can to shut her old crush down. But Hank has other plans, and all of them end with an Olive sundae.
Author’s Note: This is a sweet Christmas treat that will leave you satisfied, yet desperate for a little taste of sugar.
