Playing Santa (Summer Beach Vets Christmas Romance) ~ Escape Down Under
Escape Down Under this Christmas...and find love in Summer Beach, where cold noses touch warm hearts!
Holly stopped believing in Santa Claus long ago... until a house-sitting vacation in Australia rekindles the magic of Christmas. When she rescues a litter of abandoned puppies and meets a handsome veterinarian who captures her heart, she finds herself tempted to give up everything for a chance at love.
The last thing billionaire Dr Nick Forrester expected when helping out at the animal hospital was to meet this pretty American. He knows that they belong together - but with malicious gossip and culture clash coming between them, can he convince Holly that all he wants for Christmas is her?
Oh Playing Santa was exactly what I wanted in a cheesy Christmas read. I love Hallmark channel's countdown to Christmas. I love there terrible Christmas movies that are just awful, but in a really great way. Love love love them, and this book is kind of like that.
Holly goes to Australia to housesit for the holidays and meets sexy Dr. Nick when she finds some stranded puppies outside her house. They are both super attracted to each other, but they try not to do anything about it. It is a super quick suddenly they are in love and it is Christmas and everything is amazing book. It doesn't actually feel like the characters fall in love, but it has enough of that Christmas magic cheesiness that I loved it. Plus there are puppies!
Holly is a bit insecure and gets crazy at one point and Nick is just a really nice guy. How could he not be? He helps all the puppies! Can you tell I like puppies? So yeah they don't really spend a lot of time together before it is just like let's change our whole life to be together forever! Since it is Christmastime I love it. If this were just a normal book set some other time and I was reading it it would just be okay. Oh Christmas magic. Love it!
