RATING: 3.5 STARS
Sydnee Garrett is a 34 year old recently divorced black mother of 5 years old twin boys Travis and Charlie. After her husband left her for another woman 2 years previous, she has been solely focused on her and her two boys getting back to living a life they love. While out with the boys shopping for a Christmas tree she meets Quinn, a handsome very nice white 26 year old who offers to help deliver and set up her tree. The two begin an on again-off again relationship and we follow along as they struggle to beat down all the barriers in the way of their happily ever after.
This book was an easy romance read. While there were aspects to the story I struggled with, it was an enjoyable read that touched a bit on the Christmas theme; although not as much as you might think. Sydnee was not my favourite character unfortunately. She was a bit immature and her back and forth started to get to me after a while, always worried about what the snooty people in her life thought. Quinn however was fantastic, he was great with her boys and with her and I LOVED how he didn't let what the others were saying get to him. All he cared about was his relationship with Sydnee and the boys. All in all though it was a good, easy story with characters you find yourself rooting for till the end!
