Good Saturday morning/afternoon all! Before I get into my most recent review I know you are all saying “Sara where were you Thursday? You didn’t post a review like you normally do. It must be the end of the world!!! WHATS GOING ON?!?!?!” No, just me right? I swear I am my own worst enemy. This has been such a busy week for me. Funny enough this is my first free week post cheerleading and it has been great but REALLY busy. We had a huge seminar that we held at my job on Thursday and I was extremely busy doing extra things before, during and after work and I am beat. I am so glad that it is the weekend and that I am able to post this review! Anyways, I hope you are all having a great weekend and I can’t wait to get more on a schedule for my sanity and for some consistency. I hope you enjoy the review!!
Called an eccentric beast by the citizens of Amesport, Maine, handsome, sensual billionaire Grady Sinclair stays isolated in his mansion on a private peninsula. The arrangement suits Grady just fine—until an unassuming woman rings his doorbell, awaking his long dormant passion with her fearlessness. All he wants is to make the fiery blonde his forever. But will he have to become the monster everyone thinks he is to get his Christmas wish?
Emily Ashworth is desperate. The Youth Center has been robbed of all its money, and as the director, she has to find a way to give the town’s needy children the Christmas they deserve. With nowhere else to turn, she ventures to the mansion of a mysterious billionaire to ask for help. Warned to expect a beast, Emily is shocked to find Grady Sinclair a handsome and very sensual man. With steamy kisses under the mistletoe and seductive whispers while hanging the wreath, Emily finds there’s more to Grady than meets the eye. Is this misunderstood billionaire just a lonely soul who needs the gift of love for Christmas?
This edition of The Billionaire’s Christmas, which was previously published in A Maine Christmas…Or Two: A Duet (The Billionaire’s Angel & A Mermaid Isle Christmas), includes editorial revisions.
This is my first read by J.S. Scott and I really enjoyed this. This was a very fast-paced cheesy Christmas love story. Emily is a youth center director who finds herself in a terrible position around the holidays and is desperate to find a way to get a donation to save the youth center. Grady is a fairly quiet person. He is not seen out in the public a lot and doesn’t like social situations because of things that happened to him when he was a child. Overall I liked the story of Emily and Grady, though it was a very short book and a insta-romancey. Not really sure how I feel about the insta-romance thing, it felt kind of forced at parts. You could see that each of them grew in their own way even if it was very small. This was your typical cheesy hallmark Christmas movie in book form. It was very easy to follow along, you understood what the story was and the plot was easy to digest. I do wish this was longer, everything seemed rushed and somewhat forced. This story felt like it just ended and could have been so much better. I would’ve enjoyed watching them grow as a couple more. This is a ⭐️⭐️⭐️ star read from me.
