May 2013, 147 pages. My Rating: *****--5 Stars.
It was supposed to be just an innocent kiss at a charity kissing booth—but it turned out to be fireworks.
to dress as Santa, firefighter Zeke Pepper is blown away by the kiss
and feels he may have met The One, but school teacher Hannah Cooke is
still trying to win back her high school sweetheart Jackson.
Zeke runs into Hannah on Christmas Street, they make a deal: In
exchange for him making her ex jealous at a New Year’s Eve party, she
agrees to go on three dates with Zeke.
It seems like her plan to
win Jackson back is working perfectly—but Zeke has other plans. Could
she be falling in love with the wrong firefighter?
Who wants fireworks when she could have sparklers? Hannah, that's who.
When she is pushed into kissing a Santa at a fundraiser, sparks fly and
Hannah isn't comfortable with that.
I loved the chemistry that
Hannah and Zeke had together. I loved how hard she tried to stay away
and push him away, but how hard it was for her to do. I really loved
watching her realize what she wants and it was soooooo sweet how she
went about getting it. These two are a perfect match.
the supporting characters were almost as great as the main characters. I
couldn't stand the slimy Jackson; I adored her best friend; and loved
Cheyenne (the sister).
I also enjoyed seeing characters from the
previous novel show up in here. Even though they showed up, this
novella can stand alone.
Content: kissing; clean.
