thinks the worst of her So having him come to her rescue at her lowest moment is her idea of hell With nowhere else to go, she has no choice but to spend a few days before Christmas with Alec as his

would hate it, but seeing her thrive among his chaotic family, her realises just how very wrong he was about her We both know you re not a heartbreaker You believe in one true love and happy endings You re my nightmare No, I m not, because while I m waiting for that to come along I believe in hot sex She beamed at him Lots of it Which in fact makes me your daydream, not your nightmare His jaw tightened You should stop talking nowBut Skylar believes in love and Alec refuses to love Can they indulged in a short hot affair without their hearts becoming involved I want to be loved and accepted for who I am Love with no reservations Is that wrongI loved Skylar She s a smart ass, tough, optimistic and brave I loved how sarcastic she was with Alec and how she kept her optimism and her belief in love, despite how many times her family tried to make her believe her dreams weren t good enough She might come from wealth, but she knew what was really important, love and friendship, and that meantto her than anything elseHe couldn t remember ever wanting anything or anyone as badly as he wanted her He told himself that it was because he hadn t let himself give in to the feeling, but deep down he knew it wasthan thatI love broody heroes and Alec is my kind of hero He s reserved and cynical, but he loves his family and his friends I loved his adventurous spirit, how his job as a historian takes him all over the world, studying shipwrecks And I loved how he couldn t stay away from Sky despite how hard he tried to deny how he feltThroughout his marriage he d felt inadequate He d failed to meet almost all the demands made of him, fallen short of almost every expectation, until he d convinced himself that he wasn t capable of making any woman happy.And then Sky had come along, and made him feel as essential as sunlightI love a good hate to love book and this one was terrific Both had misconceptions about the other, until circumstances forced them to spend time together, to discover that what they thought they knew was completely wrong Both had so much baggage, Alec was so damaged by his failed marriage and Sky by a lifetime of being seen by her family and her ass of a boyfriend as a failure, as not good enough I loved seeing them together, their heated and playful banter, how they slowly revealed who they really were, and how good they were for each other It was so much fun seeing these two deny their feelings, insisting what they had was just casual and uncomplicated sex, but you could see them falling in love They were such adorable idiotsI just love this author s romances, how sweet and romantic they are with so much depth, and this was another winner from her Highly recommended @DOWNLOAD BOOK Ø Christmas Ever After ò Skylar Tempest has

Sky and Alec has been obvious to anyone who has read the previous books, that spark of attraction and the overlying resentment and bitterness and contempt In case you weren t sure, they really do not like each other.Until they re thrown together.Alec is a true gent, a wonderful man He s slightly bitter and hardened but he has good reason He s intelligent and savvy and tall, dark and handsomeExcuse me while I swoon I m sure he d catch me, chivalrous as he is.Then we have Sky, the young woman who has an amazing talent but is put down and manipulated by her controlling family and boyfriend So she is unsure and self depreciating and holds back.The passion between these two is crazy, and by the end of the story they are completely different people.My favourite part of this story, much as I love Puffin Island, was the time that the two spent in the UK The descriptions were breath taking and I had to read all snuggled up in a blanket with a large cup of tea And Alec s family are fantastic, funny and loving, and reminded me of my own family.Pre ReviewMust Resist Until November.I m really struggling not to pick this up and devour it now, but I don t know if I can wait twoweeks I need to get back to Puffin Island After the preview in the end of Some Kind of Wonderful I don t think I can wait for this Especially as I already know from past experience that this author rocks Christmas I received a copy of this for free via NetGalley for review purposes This book is the definition of clich The amount of eye rolls was enormous Actual rating 2.5 On December 23rd I started baking

amount of eye rolls was enormous Actual rating 2.5 On December 23rd I started baking Christmas cookies and thought it was a good idea to listen to an audiobook to get in the mood So, I turned to Spotify to get inspiration and stumbled overChristmas ever after by Sarah Morgan It was in a playlist between the children s books Peterson and Findus, and Lilly the witch So, I was not prepared Let me say, that this is not a suitable audiobook for kids or any family activity I was glad that I was on my own, while I was baking and listening Saved me some embarrassment If you want to listen to this book, I would recommend using headphones.That being said, it was not the thing that made me almost hate this book It was the horrible, horrible clich The book is somehow a mix of the film The Proposal and Friends with Benefits , though it was much, much worse than either of the movies Plot Skyler Tempest, a stunning blonde and successful artist with rich and horrible parents is in an unhappy relationship with an idiot politician After some events and their brake up, Alec Hunter a very handsome, dark haired friend cares for her and is as nice as anyone could possibly be Sky and Alec have the same circle of friends and a history of hating each other Or so the author tells us I did not feel much of it So, obviously, Alec takes Sky home to celebrate Christmas with his family Sky suffers the effects of a smaller accident and is, due to that, so weak that he sees no other option What follows is an accumulation of unoriginal events Sky and Alec fall in love, even though neither of them wanted to Who would have thought that Did I mention that Alec is so sure of his 3 week relationship with Sky that he proposes to her on Christmas day No Ok Well, now you know Characters The Characters were so horribly stereotypical that it made me cringe every other page The awesome, dark haired knight in shining armor and the blonde, perfect damsel in distress The warm and supportive family The cold, rich and horrible family Ugh.Also, my feminist streak kept me from liking Sky The girl honestly needs to learn to care for herself Or at least learn to wash her hair on her own, even if she has a head injury that hurts Conclusion Christmas ever after is unoriginal from beginning to end and I do not even know how it got so many 5 star reviews on goodreads Sure, the snowy landscapes and Christmassy vibes were there, but if you are searching for that, there are surely better Christmas stories GAAAAAAAHHH this book I LOVE THIS BOOK grins like a Cheshire cat It was fun, it was flirty, it was romantic, it was very Christmassy, it was a WHOLE lot of hot and bothered at times and it made me all sorts of giggly Very good giggly AGAIN Because this is my second time reading it which is rather a rarity with me and chick lits.So the two lead characters have that quintessentialwe say we hate each other but secretly are crazy hot for each other thing going on and it

made me all sorts of giggly Very good giggly AGAIN Because this is my second time reading it which is rather a rarity with me and chick lits.So the two lead characters have that quintessentialwe say we hate each other but secretly are crazy hot for each other thing going on and it was such fun They really sparked off each other And okay, so I guess this probably won t ever win awards for being the most original story or for surprising plot twists developments but that is not the point of this book This book makes you happy Well it made me happy anyway And it cheered me up from a funky mood i.e tired and exhausted from a lot of family festive kiddie laden pandemonium and it brought a whole lot of spark and sizzle back to my Christmas And what isit is a proper Christmas themed book whoops and hollers Not like so many books that just have a chapter or two that briefly mention the festive season in passing scowling face Nope This book came complete with a snowy English cottage, a quirky and loving extended family celebrating the festivities, copious amounts of mulled wine and mince pies, blazing log fires, family parlour games and everything else you could want from a perfect family Christmas The setting in the English countryside was truly idyllicwith plenty of spice and swoon For the second half of the book the action moved back to Puffin Island, Maine This provided a wonderfully romantic backdrop for the story snow storms howling outside while staying warm inside, lots of peace tranquility And the Christmassy theme was kept well and truly alive too with the main characters cutting down a Christmas tree in the forest, hand making Christmas decorations contented sigh Christmas Ever After is the third book in the Puffin Island series by Sarah Morgan I have also read the first two First Time in Forever and Some Kind of Wonderful and while they were moderately diverting they really weren t a patch on this one Each book in the series focuses on a different couple who live on or spend a lot of time on Puffin Island this is by far my favourite book of the series and my favourite couple It could definitely be read as a stand alone novel as any backstory for the supporting characters is quickly explained and easily understood which I found particularly helpful when reading this for a second time as I had loooooong since forgotten the events of book one and two I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who wants to read something fun, flirty and a little bit steamy over the cold Christmas holidays Three sizzling stars ORIGINAL REVIEWFun, flirty, romantic, Christmassy and a WHOLE lot of sizzle Christmas Ever After is the third book in the Puffin Island series by Sarah Morgan I have read the first two First Time in Forever and Some Kind

book of the series and my favourite couple It could definitely be read as a stand alone novel as any backstory for the supporting characters is quickly explained and easily understood However it is best read as part of the series I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who wants to read something fun and flirty and a little bit steamy over the cold Christmas holiday Three sizzling stars

WOW it was so worth the wait This is a couple that have been frenemies for pretty much the whole of the previous two books,tolerating of each other than anything, due to their mutual circle of friends You have a habit of thinking you have me all figured out The other thing that you come to understand if you have read the previous two books it that Skylar is so muchthan the rich, spoiled, heiress that Alec assumes her to be But the expectations of her family and the realities of who she wants to be are so conflicted it takes her a while to understand that she needs to start living her life for herself to be truly happy Turns out we were both wrong about a lot of things The story starts in snowy London, takes us into the British countryside, before Alec and Skylar journey back to the Island With a body like yours, I m willing to ignore the flaws in your personality Sparks fly, so does their clothing and our couple generally make the most of their new found frenemies to friends to friends with benefits situation You scored straight A s for stamina I don t want to say too muchabout this book, I think its beauty will bein your own discovery and outright enjoyment of the story, and my
