Review - All I Want For Christmas Is You by Lisa Mondello

All I Want for Christmas is You (Fate with a Helping Hand)All I Want for Christmas is You by Lisa Mondello

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blurb from Amazon

Sometimes fate needs a little hand…

Santa Claus is going to have a rough season... Lauren Alexander is raising her daughter alone. Abandoned by her family for her decision to keep her daughter Kristen, she has done a pretty good job for the last six years. Or she thought she had. That's why she is crushed when little Kristen gives up her wish for a toy or goodie and instead asks Santa for a present for her mother. She wants Santa to bring a Daddy. Delivering Daddies isn't Santa's bag.

But this Santa has a plan...

Kyle Preston knows what it is like to be abandoned too. Luckily he found the support of loving adoptive parents and has turned himself into one of the most successful Real Estate developers in town.

Building a house is easy. Building someone's trust is a whole other story. But with a little helping hand, a little Christmas magic can make all the difference in the world.

My Review

Lauren Alexander and Kyle Preston are the main characters in this story. Lauren is devoted to her 6 year old daughter and always puts her first. After being badly hurt she lets noone get close to her and certainly not a man.

Kyle Preston is a family oriented man, successful but a man with a past and his own baggage. After a chance encounter their paths cross and eventually a friendship blooms. Lauren is distrustful and wants Kyle to keep his distance but there is something about Lauren that Kyle can’t seem to let go.

What a lovely wee story! I just loved Kristen after the first chapter (it isn’t really about her but I just had to mention it and once you read it you will see why). The story is very easy to read, well written and nothing too challenging. I felt like I was reading a modern day mills and boons book (that is a compliment I used to love those books). There is one or two steamy scenes but nothing too risky or outrageous. A great wee feel good book and just perfect for this time of year so for me it’s 4/5 this time. This book is currently free for the Kindle on Amazon.co.uk and if your doing a December Christmas read it is perfect to snap up or if you just fancy a wee pick me up.

Thank you to the author for giving me the chance to read this book and introducing me to her work, I would definitely read more by this author.
