Because his kiss is something she can't forget….
Cue the fireworks!
I enjoyed these sweet clean romances, all set in a small Colorado town around New Year's Eve. They were short and really had no subplots, just the main plots of learning to trust, taking a chance and gaining new love for a New Year. If short sweet reads are your thing, you'll like this book. Grade: B- (about the best I give formula romances). Thanks to the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.
