All I Want for Christmas is You by Lisa Mondello
All I Want for Christmas is You (Book 1 Fate with a Helping Hand Holiday Romance)
Santa Claus is going to have a rough season... Lauren Alexander is raising her daughter alone. Abandoned by her family for her decision to keep her daughter Kristen, she has done a pretty good job for the last six years. Or she thought she had. That's why she is crushed when little Kristen gives up her wish for a toy or goodie and instead asks Santa for a present for her mother. But delivering Daddies isn't Santa's bag.
But this Santa has a plan...
Kyle Preston knows what it is like to be abandoned too. Luckily he found the support of loving adoptive parents and has turned himself into one of the most successful Real Estate developers in town.
Building a house is easy. Building someone's trust is a whole other story. But a little Christmas magic can make all the difference in the world.
I really enjoyed All I Want for Christmas is You. It was a nice holiday romance. Did everything happen quickly? Yes. Did I care? No. It was like insta-love-ish, but more believable for me.
Lauren is a single mom trying hard to be a good mom and give Kristen everything she wants and needs. She gets stuck at the mall one night after visiting Santa when her battery is dead because she left her lights on. Kyle, aka Santa at the mall, stops to help her out. Lauren was so entertaining. She is kind of hilarious when she is trying to be all tough with Kyle that first time.
Kyle is super sweet. He is just a nice, good guy who tries to help Lauren out. Even though Lauren keeps pushing him away, afraid he will eventually leave her, he doesn't give up. He keeps coming by and trying to get her to trust him. It was really just a sweet story full of Christmas miracles!
Overall it was a nice sweet Christmas story. I really enjoyed it and will probably read it again next year for Christmas.
