The Lumberjack's Yuletide Bride by Kimberly Krey {Review}

The Lumberjack's Yuletide Bride by Kimberly Krey
Kindle Edition
Published November 6th 2017 by Gelato Publishing LLC
Maddie Collins, first grade teacher at Cobble Creek Elementary, is not a man-hater. Sure, her absent father gave men a bad name, and her mother always warned her that high hopes were dangerous things, but Maddie still hopes to find a man who’ll return the love she has to offer. When lumberjack, Bear Schaefer takes an interest in her, Maddie allows her hopes to soar above the tree tops. 
Bear Schaefer, aka poster boy for Big Daddy Mills, has been dying to get back to Cobble Creek. As part owner and operator of an environmentally proactive logging company, he has a list of things vying for his attention. But none are quite so alluring as the lovely Maddie Collins. Date after date their connection grows deeper while the sparks grow hotter. Yet just as things become serious between them, a vengeful woman from Bear’s past threatens to tear them apart. With Maddie’s hopes for love so high, and Bear’s love so deep, a fall would be more devastating than a forest fire.  
My Review: 5 Stars 
My first thought when I started this was, "Do lumberjacks really still exist or are they a tall tale like Paul Bunyon?" Well, hello Bear! I do believe they exist and I absolutely loved his role in the story.

Bear uses his fame to do good for the environment and to educate people and although he's big, larger-than-life, famous, and tough, he's got a tender core that completely melted me (along with Maddie, of course) down to my soul. Maddie is a first grade teacher and an amazing person, especially with all she's been through in life.

One of my favorite things is when a celebrity (of sorts) doesn't let the fame go to his head and falls back to his roots to find love. Bear and Maddie grew up together and always had a spark that seemed to die out before it truly ignited. But a few years later, the winds pick up and fuel this chemistry into a full-blown, raging fire. The swoon pops between them and I loved watching everything develop in a deliciously satisfying way.

What would a story be without a little conflict? This one comes in the form of a volatile woman and sprinkles seeds of doubt across the board. As a whole, this story will leave you with a feeling of contentment and happiness. I can always count on Kimberly Krey to deliver a sweet treat right to my heart.
