Maddie’s hoping for a little holiday magic with her sexy neighbor Noah…
For the last year, Maddie’s been trying to get Noah’s attention, but to no avail. Until a busted light bulb, a broken ladder and a concussion lend a hand. Now with the holidays right around the corner, she’s hopeful that she’ll finally get her wish to kiss her sexy neighbor as way to kick off the new year.
Did you guys know I really dislike summer? I do. Normally, I run warm so during the summer, I feel like I’m just a moment away from melting into the pavement. But then there is this beautiful thing called Christmas In July. And QVC does it, and Hobby Lobby already has their fall and Christmas stuff out, so I’m feeling better. And then along comes Samantha Chase, with a Christmas novella. YES!
Our story starts out with Maddie and her best friend, Keira, at Halloween. Keira is already making plans for Christmas and New Years during Halloween. Do we not all have that friend? I do and while I admire their excitement and planning skills, they also exhaust me. How the hell do they do it? I can barely keep track of the week I’m in.
Keira is trying to, unsuccessfully, convince Maddie to try online dating or anything else so that they will have someone to kiss at midnight. Maddie is definitely not feeling it. She’s had her eye on her neighbor, Noah aka Sergeant Sexy. Keira knows this, but Maddie hasn’t actually done anything about this crush.
Noah and Maddie do finally come together through the darkness of a burned out light bulb and a wonky step ladder. Its very sweet when things finally start to come together for Maddie and Noah. I say this because Noah is used to being alone and then he slowly lets Maddie in. Seeing him realize how much better life can be is really heartwarming.
But bad habits are hard to kick, and Noah reverts back to his old ways when he has a moment of panic with Maddie.
I really don’t want to say much more because it’ll give away the ending, which is just…ahhh…fantastic. Trust me when I say Samantha Chase won’t disappoint you.
