A GIFT AS BIG AS TEXAS
Molly Griffith is ambitious and only wants to give her little boy the opportunities she never had. Which means moving to Dallas, no matter what Chance Lockhart says! Though being with the handsome rancher does make the idea of small-town life more tempting…
Molly has always gotten under Chance's skin, and now that he's bonded with her little tyke, he can't imagine Bullhaven Ranch without them. But the single mom is so focused on her big-city fairy tale, she could miss Chance's offer of the most important gift of all—the love and support of a real family.
A story delightfully filled with Christmas cheer, one adorable little cowboy, and sizzling chemistry between the hero and the heroine.
I loved the energy between Chance and Molly, it was nearly visible as they were in the same room, so obvious to everyone around them. I also enjoyed the connection between Molly's son and Chance, there was something really special about those two together.
Chance was easy going, kind, generous to the fault, with a big heart and honest to the bone. He said it as it was, he did everything he could to help people he cared for, and stood for his convictions.
Molly is a survivor. She has faced a lot and made a difference in her life. And she is willing to do anything to better her son's life. I had a little hard time to understand her, or should I say relate to her priorities, that were money and more money will make a better future. And she seemed to be willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of making more money.
But when the rich and famous makes an attempt to pull her into their games and shenanigans she has to figure out fast what is important to her and what is she willing to do to advance her career.
Lots of Christmas baking (that I loved!), cute as a button three-year-old cowboy preparing for the holidays, and sensual, ardent romance mixed with pondering of values and ethics. I like it when the story makes me think and evaluate my own beliefs.
