If only a little Christmas magic could solve all their problems . . .

All professional soccer player Camden Sharpe wants for Christmas is to get home to Cobble Creek, Wyoming, for snow and family time. But when a brawl video surfaces online, Cam is forced to stay in Texas to clean up the public relations mess if he ever wants to get off the fans’ Naughty List. His manager-imposed community service lands Camden in a Santa suit surrounded by little kids with long lists of demands, but his attention is on his pretty elf assistant. He’s sure he’s seen her somewhere before, and he’s not convinced it was all that good.

Talia Thomas hopes Santa doesn’t recognize her. A lot of things in her life have changed since they butted heads a while back—including the trajectory of her career—and he has no idea he was the one who changed everything. Once a network reporter, Talia now runs MyHeartChannel Talia’s Truth Cam, but views are falling, advertisers are disappearing, and Talia’s excitement for her stories has frozen over. She’s tired of depressing news and shattered hearts, but it’s her job to tell the truth.

As Talia and Cam set out on a mission to convince the other the see the good in the world around them, they soon discover that only looking for the good sometimes means missing the truth that was right in front of them. Can Camden and Talia ever trust each other enough to move on from the mistakes of their past?

My Review: 5 Stars

A sweet romance is perfect for any time of the year, but especially for the holidays. Talia and Cam have met before, in less than ideal circumstances, but this time around, things are different. In her quest to help Cam see all the good things that Texas has to offer for Christmas, Cam helps her see the good in the world and inadvertently helps her flailing channel thrive.

Both and Cam and Talia are great characters and such good sports, accommodating their fans and supporters in sometimes uncomfortable ways. They each have hearts of gold, wanting to make the world around them better. Yet, misunderstandings can happen to the best intended people.

This story is pure fun and these two are people that I would love to be friends with. I loved the excitement surrounding Talia's channel revamp and loved the side stories connected with it. Who doesn't love a book that reads like a Hallmark Christmas movie? I sure do and I'm definitely in the mood for the holidays now!
