Holly Lane hadn’t planned to take a trip on Santa’s lap this year, but her best friend talks her into it anyway. Only it isn’t a what that she’s wishing for this year… it’s a who. But what are the odds that Santa can fit Jacob Marley in her stocking?
Warning: Some of the best gifts come in small packages. Which is a good thing since this sweet & sexy novella is short… but not as short as the blurb!
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
The One I Want for Christmas was the perfect Holiday romance. Short, sweet and sexy, this second chance love story was as good as it was short. Yes, I would have loved it for it to be longer, but I was totally satisfied with it as it is.
Holly is spending her first Christmas by herself now that her mom has remarried and moved with her new husband. At the time she just couldn’t see herself leaving her childhood home, but now that weather has prevented her mom and stepfather from coming to spend the holidays with her things are starting to look a little gloomy.
Lately, she’s found herself thinking more and more about her high school sweetheart, Jacob. He was the one for her, but when he had to move after only having been together for a couple of months and his starting college they had to break things off… though for her there never was anyone else.
That’s how she finds herself wishing for Jacob on Santa’s lap, knowing that that’s never going to happen. Or is it? When Jacob comes knocking on her door on Christmas morning, life as she knows it might very well change forever.
Holly and Jacob made for one totally cute couple. Their devotion to each other was super sweet with Jacob bordering in OTT obsessive, just how I like it. With some steamy dreams and sexy scenes, enchanting MCs and the bestest epilogue I’ve read this year, The One I Want for Christmas is my favorite holiday romance of the year, shortness and all.

together for years, which meant Harley was right—it didn’t matter that we were a good ten years older than the biggest
kid in line, they weren’t going to turn us away.

smile onto my face, I made small talk until it was our turn. Harley went first,
eliciting a giggle from me when she started to sing “Santa Baby” as she settled
herself on Santa’s lap. By the time she hopped off, there was a blush staining

he definitely wasn’t as soft and round as the padding made him seem, if the
bunched muscles of his thigh were any indication. I had a feeling there was a
hot guy under that suit, one who was interested in my best friend.
Maybe our little visit to Santa was more about her than me.

It’s a who,” I whispered.
