Story Overview:
It’s Christmastime again in Heartbreaker Bay!

When Sean O’Riley shows up at the Hartford Bed & Breakfast for his older brother’s bachelor weekend, he’s just hoping to make it through the weekend. What he’s not expecting is to come face to face with the woman he lost his virginity to a decade ago—a woman he’s never really forgotten.

The last time Lotti Hartford saw Sean, she told him she loved him while he said nothing. Now, ten years later, she’s just looking for a good time. For once, she wants to be the wild and free one, and Sean – the good time guy – is the perfect candidate.

But as the weekend continues, Sean realizes that after a lifetime of being the hook-up king, he’s ready to find happily-ever-after, and he wants it with Lotti. But will she open her heart to him again? As Christmas sweeps through the little B&B, he can only hope love and magic are in the air.

My Review:
Aww, a second chance at love story...and one that takes place over the holidays which makes it even better. This was a fun little story, but it is short, so it didn't quite go as deep as I would have liked. But what was there, I loved. 

Sean and Lotti were lovers one night when they were both 16. They were one another's firsts, but Lotti was moving and Sean was completely messed up from losing both his parents. So he never contacted her again...something he still regrets. So, it's a complete surprise to find Lotti manning the B&B desk when the bachelor/bachelorette parties check in for the weekend. This is his opportunity for a second chance.

Like I mentioned the story is short, but there is a lot of emotion and chemistry on the page...definitely enough to get immersed in the story and the outcome for these two characters. It was highly entertaining and had the added benefit of getting to see Sean's brother's (Finn) wedding to Pru and glimpses of all the Heartbreaker Bay characters. 

Overall, I would definitely recommend it especially if your reading time is limited this time of the year.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
