Historical Christmas Romance
Mackenzie Family Christmas: The Perfect Gift (Highland Pleasures, #4.5) - Jennifer Ashley

Mackenzie Family Christmas: The Perfect Gift by Jennifer Ashley is a fairly short read, a good choice for those with limited time for reading.  If you are familiar with the Mackenzie Series, you won't have any trouble with this book.  If you aren't familiar, you may have trouble keeping the characters straight in the beginning of the book.  This is a Christmas story of the Mackenzie brothers and their wives and is an entertaining read.  There is plenty of drama, humor and spice to hold a reader's attention.  I enjoyed this holiday book and look forward to reading more from Jennifer Ashley in the future.  A Mackenzie Family Christmas is book 4.5 of the Mackenzie & McBrides Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from BookFunnel.

Maybe This Christmas (Colorado Ice) by Jennifer Snow
Maybe This Christmas (Colorado Ice) - Jennifer Snow

 

A wish, a risk and a kiss light up the season this holiday. Ms. Snow mixes business with pleasure in this friends with benefits romance. What happens when a hockey star is forced to spend the holiday with his endearingly, overbearing family? He discovers the girl he left behind is starting to look like the woman he can't live without. The people we love most are sometimes the ones we appreciate the least. Maybe This Christmas is a reminder of the precious moments and the special people that grace our lives and live within our hearts.

Stell dir vor, dass ich dich liebe von Jennifer Niven
Stell dir vor, dass ich dich liebe - Maren Illinger,Jennifer Niven

Worum geht es und wie war es?

 

Jack & Libby. Libby & Jack. Erst einmal sind das nur Namen, aber Jennifer Niven füllt diese Namen mit Leben und mit einer je eigenen Lebensgeschichte. Jack ist  ziemlich beliebt, gut aussehend und ist mit dem hübschesten Mädchen der Schule zusammen. ABER er hat auch ein großes Geheimnis. Er ist gesichtsblind. Er ist zwar mit dem schönsten Mädchen zusammen, aber er kann sich nicht an ihr Gesicht erinnern, er sieht ihr Gesicht nie im Ganzen und würde sie auch nie in einer Menschenmenge wiedererkennen. Jack erkennt nicht einmal seine Eltern oder Brüder wieder. 

Also baut er sein Leben lang an einem Lügengerüst, damit niemand etwas von dieser großen Schwäche bemerkt.

 

Libby fällt auf, kann sich gar nicht unsichtbar machen, denn sie ist übergewichtig: genauer noch: sie ist Amerikas fettester Teenager gewesen, musste aus ihrem Haus herausgeholt werden mit einem Kran und geht nun nach vielen Jahren wieder auf die öffentliche Schule... wie wird der Neuanfang? Ist es ein Neuanfang, wenn einen doch die Geschichten und Erinnerungen von früher einholen?

Und dann gibt es da auch jemanden wie Jack, der ihr das Leben noch einmal schwerer macht und ihr als dem fetten Mädchen auch noch eine Zielscheibe auf den Rücken pinnt.

 

Eigentlich scheint es schwer, eine Liebesgeschichte um diese beiden Charaktere zu kreieren, aber Jennifer Niven ist es gelungen und sie konnte mich mit ihrer Geschichte gefangen nehmen, ABER leider kommt das Buch nicht an "All die verdammt perfekten Tage" heran. Das Buch war eindrücklicher, während "Stell dir vor, dass ich dich liebe" ein bisschen an der Oberfläche blieb und mir manches zu kurz kam und zu schnell aufgelöst wurde. 

Es war ein gutes Buch, aber eben auch nicht mehr, weshalb ich nur 4 von 5 Sternen vergebe.

Great Story and Characters
Birthquake - B.L. Berry,Jennifer Roberts... Birthquake - B.L. Berry,Jennifer Roberts-Hall

Jeff met Henley on a plane.  As they talked they found out they both lived in Kansas City. Jeff is a software engineer and Henley is a sixth grade teacher. Jeff can’t seem to say a full normal sentence to Henley he just gets tongue tied or what he is trying to say comes out wrong. Jeff does manage to ask Henley out and she told him to call when they both get back to Kansas City her and gives him her number. Henley’s best friend is Tara. Tara was married and had triplets who were toddlers. She also had a very quirky way of saying things.  Then before she knows it Henley and Jeff have been seeing each other for almost five months. Tara knows how hard it is for Henley to open up about her relationships. Henley has been a lot more guarded since Her ex Leo and Henley broke up. Jeff asks Henley to his brother’s Chris’s wedding. At the same time Henley could meet Jeff’s family. Then Henley finds out Jeff comes from a rich family and is even more nervous. After Chris’s wedding Henley finds out she is pregnant but Jeff is very sweet and they are both happy and excited about the baby even if they haven’t been together that long. Henley knows she has hit the jackpot for boyfriends. The relationship has its hurdles but Jeff and Henley but Jeff and Hanley are sure of their love for each other.

I absolutely adored this story. I have children so I remember the pregnancies and births and the time right after. This was very realistic as fas as I am concerned. This had regular situation and emotions pregnant women can go through. This made me laugh out loud a lot and that is very rare for me but very good and doesn’t happen very often.  This was well written and a heartwarming fun read. I loved how Tara was there for Henley. Everyone should have a Tara as a best friend in their life.  I absolutely love Jeff  and Henley together right from the beginning.  I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.
