⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sweet yet sexy Christmas story

Shaking the Sleigh: A holiday romantic comedy (Seasons in Singletree Book 1)

Light, fun, and sexy with plenty of Christmas cheer, Shaking the Sleigh is a great holiday read. I love Delancey Stewart’s writing style – it’s so easy to read with a lightness that draws you in to the story. There’s a whole lot to like about this book, and the hero is an adorably grumpy former soccer star who will steal your heart.

The story follows April, a TV producer who is one step away from being out of the business for good. She hooked up with the star of a Bachelor-like show, and now the only job she can get is working for her uncle on a Christmas special. This is especially problematic for her because she hates all things Christmas. To make matters worse, her job – and thus career – hinges on her getting a former soccer star to honor the contract he was unaware that he signed. Callan recently bought a home in town seeking isolation after his own career-ending injury left him a mess emotionally as well as physically, and the last thing he wants is for his new house to be featured on TV. Unfortunately for both of them, the chemistry that sparks between them is obvious from the start and problematic for so many reasons.

It’s a light, easy read with a touch of steam and a hero who is easy to like. I honestly thought Callan would be grumpier, but it doesn’t take long for him to see the potential in things with April. On the other hand, I struggled to connect to April at times. She lost her last job because she slept with the star of her show – not because she was all that into him, more as a conquest to know that she could. And even knowing how much she has on the line, she’s still the aggressor in things with Callan, pushing the physical connection between them. It wasn’t completely off putting, but it definitely rubbed me the wrong way. That didn’t stop me from enjoying the book as a whole, and ultimately it’s a well written, sweet yet sexy read that’s perfect for Christmastime. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
