Frosted Midnight by Breena Wilde.....Review

As I write this post, I am very tired.  I spent most of the day at the hospital with my husband who is in critical condition.   He has had four episodes now where he goes into a coma and is hospitalized until he recovers with no certain diagnosis or prognosis.    This is the fourth episode in five years and it is scarier everytime it happens than the time before.    2 yrs ago, the last even occurred and we prayed him well.   I know people who pray and God heard our prayers.  When he came home from the last admission, he told me he suffers enough pain that he can not imagine living much longer.   He told me he didn't want to be admitted again and he didn't want revived.   I am now his voice.   I don't want to make this decision for him, but I will since he voiced his desires to me.  I am tired and I fear this review of Frosted Midnight may be colored by life's happenings here on the homefront.

Here is the Goodreads Synopsis:
Frosted Midnight is proud to be a part of The 12 NA's of Christmas

Willow needs a miracle...

Twenty-year-old Willow is a librarian in the tourist town of Bandon, Oregon. During the summer the town is bursting with interesting people from all over the world. 

Two summers ago she met Austin. He was everything she ever wanted in a man: smart, funny, and gorgeous. But after eight perfect weeks he left, and she hasn't heard from him since. 

Until Christmas Eve. She receives an email from Austin asking her to meet him at midnight so he can explain. 

It might be a booty call, but Willow has to see him one last time, even if it's just to say good-bye.

From My Perspective:

Frosted Midnight is a romance story set against a Christmas time frame.   The story itself really had very little to do with Christmas.    The novella was 110 pages long in the paperback version.  Breena's writing is fluent and comfortable to read.   Being New Adult, I expected graphic sexual scenes and they certainly leaped out of the pages.   The story however, was not one of depth and the characters were also not real well developed.

For a fast read it qualified.    From a Christmas story, it disappointed.    For a romance, I enjoyed it.    From a sexually explicit standpoint and foul language, this reader did not enjoy it.   I've rated the story a 3 WINK read.

Disclaimer:  I read for my pleasure.   I may receive ARC copies for review purposes, but I am not compensated for my reviews .  I like to read and I like to share my reviews.   I post my thoughts without prejudice or bias.  The words are mine and I write reviews based on my humble opinion.  I will admit, I seldom meet a book I don't like.   This was a book I purchased.
