A CHRISTMAS REUNION by NIC STARR
The Christmas Eve Dance six years ago was the scene of angry words and heartbreak. This Christmas, it’s time for forgiveness and second chances.
Hunter Cavendish fled his hometown six years ago and has avoided returning ever since. Now an up-and-coming designer, he succumbs to family pressure and agrees to come home for Christmas. But the fates must be conspiring against him, because the very first person he runs into is Aaron McBride—the man he’s never been able to resist. The man who broke his heart.
Aaron McBride loves his small town, loves the gift store he owns, and absolutely adores Christmas—it’s his favorite time of the year. That is, until this year. This year he’s forced to work alongside the infuriating and entitled Hunter Cavendish on the Christmas Eve Dance decorating committee. There’s no way he’s going to fall under the spell of his charms again—absolutely not.
But the Christmas spirit weaves its magic, bringing the two of them together and providing the perfect opportunity for apologies, fresh starts, and falling in love again. So long as they can put the past behind them…
A Christmas Reunion is a cute, feel-good holiday romance featuring enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity, second chances, lots of Christmas sweetness, and a well-deserved happy ending.
Aw. A Christmas Reunion was a short and sweet story with all the warm and fuzzy feels you expect in a holiday book. It lacked heat between the sheets so if you like your holiday stories naughty,, this one isn't for you. I enjoyed it despite the lack of heat though.
A combination of Christmas magic and communication made a second chance possibly for Aaron and Hunter.
I loved watching Aaron and Hunter find their way back to one another after six long years apart while organizing the Christmas Eve Dance. They were both well written characters with more emotional intelligence than most people in their 20s. Both of them had their own set of pre-conceived ideas about what had driven them apart but it didn't take long for the truth to come out. Once it did, love quickly followed.
Hunter was my favorite character simply because he was a man who wanted to keep the peace but not at the expense of his own happiness. It was highly satisfying to see him come into his own and do what he felt was right.
