This is my recommended Christmas Read of the week!
The bit on the back…
The bit on the back…
Once upon a time Kayla loved Christmas
Now she’s more dedicated to her job than decking the halls, and can’t wait for the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ to be over.
Until she arrives at the enchanting Snow Crystal ski resort, determined to win gorgeous owner Jackson as a marketing client.
But wooing Jackson professionally quickly turns personal as they spend flirty festive nights in this glittering winter wonderland.
With snowflakes swirling and sleigh bells ringing…could Jackson be the one to make Kayla fall back under the Christmas spell?
This is the first book in Sarah Morgan’s Snow Crystal trilogy however it’s the second in the series that I’ve read. Each is standalone of the three novels are standalone but the correct order is Sleigh Bells In The Snow first! You can check out my review of book 2, Suddenly Last Summer here.
The Snow Crystal trilogy follows the O’Neill family in particular the three brothers. This book is all about Jackson O’Neill and his attempt to save the family business by enlisting the help of top PR guru Kayla.
I was lucky to receive a copy of Suddenly Last Summer and also book 3 three in this trilogy – Maybe This Christmas – to review. I hadn’t read the start of this family’s story though so took myself to Amazon to buy this. It’s a perfect wintery escapism novel and I loved every page of it.
If you’ve read about any of the O’Neill brothers you will know they all have a few things in common, one definitely being their gorgeous looks. I really fell for Jackson’s caring, sexy brother in Suddenly Last Summer so I was fully prepared to fall for Jackson. He’s put his family’s needs first and those of the business dropping his own to come home. I loved his sense of family and it’s something that’s important to the story and to the O’Neill family.
Kayla couldn’t be any more different than Jackson and everything he stands for. Estranged from her family she’s eager to let Christmas go past her with minimal effort and input on her part. I felt really sorry for Kayla because I love Christmas and I really empathised with her. She’s had a really crappy time as far as family goes and I liked how Sarah wrote about Kayla.
Kayla may be the entire opposite of Snow Crystal and Jackson but she has a special bond with Jackson’s niece and I love how that made her more comfortable and made her fit in more on the resort. The relationship between Kayla and Jackson begins as strictly professional but escalates off the scale into a meltingly hot affair in the mountains of Snow Crystal and I really loved them both together – they seemed perfect for each other.
The story is a real test of emotions and they are all heightened particularly because of the time of year.
