Book Description:

To college student, Katie Brandt, ‘Home for the Holidays’ sounds like hell. When her parents separated, their holiday traditions shattered like a dropped ornament. What could be worse than celebrating Christmas with her suddenly single mom and mom’s new boyfriend?

Alex Walker, an engaged 20-year-old, dreads going home for his own reasons. He has a daunting task ahead of him and wishes he could skip the holidays altogether. So when a friend of a friend needs a ride north, Alex finds that having beautiful Katie seated by his side proves to be just the distraction he needs.

A simple ride home for Christmas turns into a nightmare when light snow rages into a full-scale blizzard. Katie and Alex find themselves stranded, and a vacant cabin becomes a haven from the storm.
Under different circumstances, time alone with Alex would be the ultimate Christmas gift, but Katie knows Alex is engaged and she must hide her growing attraction.

However, Alex harbors a secret that just might change this holiday from the worst Christmas ever, to the best.

My Thoughts:

Katie's parents are on the verge of a divorce and now her mother is with a guy, Tom, who is "not" her boyfriend and dresses too young for her age and expects Katie to deal and spend Christmas with her. Alex is supposed to drive Katie but they both end up stuck in a blizzard when an accident occurs Alex uses his wit and gets them to safety. (Eek idk how to write more of a summery without ruining this book. )

I enjoyed this sweet and short novella. It only took me a couple hours to read this, It perfect for a little Christmas time romance book. I liked the characters, cept the mother for obvious reasons. I didn't like how selfish her mother was, she should at least try to see and understand from Katie's POV of whats going on. There's a lot of changes and can't expect people to be happy about whats going on without an explanation. I liked Alex he's sweet, resourceful but can be stupid letting his girlfriend trap him into a relationship he didn't want to be in. He should've just broke it off for real and not take crap from his ex. 

This was a cute little winter read, and perfect for snuggling up and with a cup of hot chocolate or at least that's what I'm picturing in my head. I enjoyed this book and think you readers will too. 4 of 5 stars!

She's still working on that one.
