Ten years ago, Jarrett Brandt left home and abandoned everyone of importance. After a hard reality check, the irresponsible young man matured into a ballsy DEA agent with a kickass Harley Davidson and a million-dollar bounty on his head. Ordered by his superior officer to take refuge at a safe house just days before Christmas, he headed back home to Washington State, instead, to make peace with his deceased brother’s memory.
Marissa Reinn Brandt never expected to see Jarrett again. Best friends since childhood and lovers as teenagers, immaturity, over-demanding parents and illicit drugs ripped them apart. Now a successful chef at a posh restaurant, the young widow and her son offered Jarrett a place to stay for the holiday. Even though she expected nothing from her former lover—the twin brother of the man she married—fate intervened.
As Jarrett and Marissa rekindled the flames of love and lust that once bound them together, an enemy from his past and a trusted mentor from his present vied their time in the snowy dark and threatened to destroy everyone he held dear. Needing a Christmas miracle to save his family, Jarrett needed the love of a good woman to save his battered heart. His second chance with Marissa meant the world to him and nothing, no one, would stand in his way of cherishing her for all time.
Jarrett left home ten years ago after a fall out with his father, leaving Marissa behind. No one back home knew anything about his life for the past decade and when he came back into town, Marissa was determined to find out. Marissa was not a woman to be messed with. I was really surprised by some of her actions, you will know when you get there. She was a refreshing change in female characters. I absolutely adored Jason. He is instant love and between his words and actions there is no way you could say no to him.
There is suspense in here and the story was complete. There wasn’t any holes. I felt like I had a full novel within this novella. Oh and did I mention that it was HOT! This is a great, quick, Christmas read!!
