by Tracey Alvarez

Summary from Goodreads:

She’s a Holiday Grinch…

Carly Gatlin doesn’t want to spend another Christmas alone. With her beloved father gone, she’s desperate to be part of a family—so she’s spending the holidays with her step-brothers on Stewart Island. But even with sand, sun, and not a snowflake in sight, everything reminds her of what she’s lost. So no tree trimming, cookie baking, or kisses under the mistletoe for her, thanks. Especially not from Due South’s sexy bartender, Kip.

He’s a too-hot-for-his-Santa-suit killjoy…

Kip Sullivan’s moved hundreds of miles away from his family who’d like to see him married off before his next birthday—on Christmas Eve. Then ten days before the big event, his meddling relatives arrive en masse, and dear God, they’re planning to stay. With match-makers breathing down his neck, it’s becoming harder to ignore the temptation to unwrap Carly like a present under the tree.

The Kiwi barbecue isn’t the only thing sizzling this summer…

Kip agrees to help make Carly’s first New Zealand Christmas special. He’s got five holiday missions to complete—one involving a frisky fake reindeer—before he hopes to claim a mistletoe kiss…and maybe even Carly’s heart.

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without this spicy yet sweet Due South novella.

TSR My Review

Christmas With You was a super sweet, heartwarming story, perfect for the holidays. Of course I was going to love it because I already love all the characters from this series, but even readers who aren’t familiar with the Due South series can still enjoy this novella.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic Christmas story. If you’ve read other books by this author then you probably already know you can’t go wrong with her.

After reading Ready to Burn I felt kind of bad for Carly so I’m really glad she got her happily ever after. Carly and Kip were a perfect match and the Christmas theme suited them so well.
