I need more from Sandor
Christmas romances are probably my favourite things to read and watch, and - with the current obsession with Hallmark holiday movies - it appears as though I'm not the only one who loves them. They're sweet, sappy, easy to get through and there are so many good ones to choose from. When I had the opportunity (thank you to the author and Give Me Books PR) to read an advanced copy of Not Your Average Vixen, in exchange for an honest review, I leapt higher than your average reindeer. I was so excited and was really hoping I wouldn't be let down. I have never read anything by Krista Sandor - but now, she's got me hooked! I loved this book - the characters, the premise, the snowy mountain scenery - it was a perfect Christmas read.
Bridget Dasher is down on her luck - with pretty much everything in her life facing challenges. But her relationship with her younger sister Lori is solid and is the best part of her life. Lori is having a Christmas wedding and Bridget is determined for it to go off without a hitch. She's planned everything perfectly - the only thing she didn't plan for was Soren, the grumpy, down-on-love best man who seems determined to ruin the wedding! Well, not if Bridget has anything to say about it. Bridget will do anything to give Lori her perfect wedding, even if it means having to deal with Soren herself. There's just one little problem - Bridget just might be - a little - okay, a lot - attracted to Soren, and that may throw a wrench in both of their plans.
This book was so great. It had moments of fun perfectly mixed with emotional moments. I was immediately pulled in, and couldn't wait to see what happened. Based on the premise, I thought I'd be annoyed with Soren - but I fell for him so hard. I could understand where he was coming from and why he did the things he did. And waiting to see if he would find redemption for his bad attitude was part of the fun. The romance between Bridget and Soren was anticipated with each turn of the page - they matched each other perfectly and their moments of butting heads filled me with glee - which is exactly what you would hope for from a Christmas Rom-Com. If you are looking to get yourself the perfect gift this holiday season (and with the way 2020 has gone - who isn't?) download this book. You won't regret it.
