Luca meets Bella and have a one nightstand. In the morning she disappears and he has no memory of her or the night. Four years later he runs into her…and his twins.
It's morning. I'm in a strange hotel room. I vaguely remember returning last night after hitting the bar downstairs, but there's something else prickling at the recesses of my mind.
Four Years Later
I see a figure off in the distance, it sparks something in my mind I don't know what, I don't know this person; do I?
As I draw closer my breath speeds up, my skin prickles and the hairs on my arm stand on end. I grow light headed, you turn around, your eyes grow round and then you try to hide behind your golden brown hair.
Wait you have a kid, who are you, why do you seem so familiar...the kid, why does he look...
I stop in my tracks, I know that face I see it every morning in the mirror.
I turn my head to this new interruption, there's another one, a little girl...I look at you as the pieces start to fall into place.
It all comes flooding back, that night I wasn't too sure of, that night that has haunted me for nearly four years almost to the day. The dream I've been chasing. But it wasn't a dream, it was real, you are real.
"Who are you?"
A Family For Christmas ended up being a sweet story that was pure Jordan Silver. There was an air of tragedy to it since when Luca and Bella first meet, he is on his way to start over after losing his wife and infant. A one night stand that he was too drunk to remember results in Bella conceiving twins. Since she never saw Luca again and doesn’t know his full name, she’s been on her own.
Luca comes across as a class A jerk at first when he sees his children, but who can blame him considering he missed three years of their lives. His heavy handedness didn’t bother me since I knew Bella would have him wrapped around her finger soon enough, although there were a couple times it’s lucky for him Bella was so sweet since I’d have castrated him.
I was a bit worried about their connection because at first I just wasn’t feeling it but it did eventually improve. When things got moving in the bedroom, my worries about the connection went straight out the window. Luca had it going on!
At times there was an almost magical quality around certain incidents in the book which I liked and wish had been exploited a bit more. My one issue, and to me it was a fairly important one, was that the problems with Bella’s sister were built up and then just fizzled out. She deserved more than she got and it left me feeling like that little plotline was unfinished.
I ended up having fun reading this book. There’s nothing like an OTT alpha with some serious bedroom skills getting a Christmas miracle.
