Thanks to Netgalley and Carina Press, I received an ARC of No Mistletoe Required by Jeanette Murray.
Overview: (Copied From Netgalley)
Dan Beckins isn’t sure how he let his best friend con him into volunteering to build Santa’s Winter Wonderland at the local hospital. He’s got no problems with charity work, but anything Christmas-related is off-limits ever since he lost his parents on Christmas Day years ago. The only bright spot is working with smoking-hot Anna Smith.
Anna Smith loves Christmas and volunteering at the hospital is one of her yearly highlights. She had leukemia as a teen and then a breast cancer scare in her mid-twenties, and is now operating under a self-imposed rule that she can’t have a relationship until the doctors give her a clean bill of health.
A little fling might be permissible, though, and sexy lawyer-turned-carpenter Dan seems like the perfect candidate. But when chemistry flares and the two start forming a real connection, will Anna run away before like turns to love?
My Opinion: I definitely enjoyed No Mistletoe Required. Like Anna, I’m a huge Christmas fan. The storyline was sexy and sweet, all rolled up into a nice Christmas package, and tied with a glittery bow. This was a short read, but it didn’t feel like it. The characters are written strongly, developed deeply enough to pull the reader in and helps the story feel fuller. Jeanette Murray did an awesome job of building up the Christmas Spirit. Gosh, I wish it was December now!
I rate No Mistletoe Required by Jeanette Murray 4.5 out of 5 stars for being sexy, sincere, and a general fun read!
