Kyle Austen Reed had it all, and his devilishly handsome good looks were known to steal hearts on and off the screen…
Fired…Evicted…Caring for a special needs child…
Aurora Rose’s life wasn’t a Lifetime movie. For the courageous and beautiful single mother, this was her reality…
When a meet and greet with an adoring young fan changes both of their worlds, Kyle will have to prove that there’s more to him than meets the eye, and Aurora will need to have faith that, after years of just scraping by, she is deserving of more than just a temporary reprieve from her daily struggle…
For the movie star and the single mom, will a Christmas Wish become their new reality?
Mon Dieu, I love this story! And I needed that reminder of Christmas magic, abundance of love, kindness, and generosity that is part of it.
Hope Falls have been since the book one, my 'happy place' 'safe place' what ever you want to call it, where you escape when life gets too much. The people are successful and 'most famous' this and that, but really, at Hope Falls, everyone is just a person, a neighbor, a friend. They are genuine, solid, honorable, honest, and kind. Just a place where anyone would want to build their lives in.
I admit, I wasn't a fan of Kyle Austin Reed in the previous books, I thought he was pretentious and full of himself. But as I get to know Kyle, the person, I love him. His big heart, kindness, generosity, honesty, and love towards Angel and Aurora, took my breath away.
Aurora is so tough, strong, and incredible mom. I love how she puts Angel first, always. Even putting her own pride aside for the sake of her child. The struggle to let go of the control, and let Angel fly free, be independent, had me in tears. How hard it must have been, to give Angel that freedom, and not guard her every moment, to keep her safe.
The connection between Aurora and Kyle is magical. From the first moment it is palpable, and it just grows from there. The passion is steaming hot, beautiful, and excited. But the caring is even deeper, the desire to make the other happy the main goal.
Angel says at one point that she doesn't believe in Santa, well, this story was pure magic, filled with all the good things that Christmas is all about, love, sacrifice, kindness, generosity. It made me believe in the magic of Christmas, once again.
I hope you will open up your heart this season, and take an emotional, and magical, ride to Hope Falls, with Kyle, Aurora, and Angel, and the rest of the friends from the town
