Yours For Christmas by Susan Mallery--a Review


Step out of the winter chill and into the warmth of Fool's Gold, California, the charming small-town setting for a new holiday novella from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery

Famous former NFL stars don't date single working moms like Bailey Voss. She'll allow herself to daydream about Kenny Scott's muscles and killer smile, but wanting more would lead to post-holiday regret. Then Kenny volunteers to run a toy drive with Bailey, and she learns that he's not just hot…he's also generous, funny, nice. The whole package—tantalizingly out of reach.

The ache of past loss reminds Kenny why he needs to avoid getting too close to anyone. Especially to a gorgeous redhead and her adorable little girl. Mess it up, and he'd lose them both. Yet Kenny can only resist Bailey for so long. And as festive spirit spreads throughout the town, he's all wrapped up in Bailey's sweet, sexy kisses and determined to make this the first of many Christmases together…


During the holiday season is my favorite time of year to read the novellas, shorter stories than a full fledged novel.   Mallery's Yours For Christmas was a fast paced story that was simply told, short at 98 pages, and heart warming.   The heroine was strong and believable, the hero was complete with past baggage and a definite need for self preservation and the cutest seven year old girl, rounded out the potential future family.    The characters were surrounded by so many loving friends and neighbors.

I enjoyed the rounding out of the characters and the history built for them.   I also enjoyed the sweet storyline with it's conflict resolved by the people of Fool's Gold and the brave heart of our heroine, Bailey Voss.     This was definitely a warm and fuzzy read and I am happy to have included it in my 25 days of Christmas.

I rated this a 4 wink read.
