I was excited to see that this story was told through two points of view. When you are reading a novella, it is a HUGE plus if an author can get you to connect to their characters quickly. The switching points of view definitely helped in this case.
I really liked reading from Jamey’s point of view. He was such a genuinely good guy and that was really refreshing to see. He also showed some growth from the start of the story to the end which I totally didn’t expect in this shorter read. At first he is a bit lonely, not all that interested in the holidays but that all changes after he meets Heather.
Heather is an equally genuine, sweet character. Where Jamey is a bit hesitant to celebrate the holidays, Heather is all about it. Making the children’s ward where she works as a nurse extra special during the holiday season is one of her favorite things to do.
I liked the connection between these two; it was easy, simple, and fun. Some of the wording was a bit awkward in this story (Solar Plexus was used quite a bit. It was just…weird), and some of the things said made this book a bit cheesier than it needed to be but otherwise I really enjoyed it. If you need a quick boost to get you into the holiday mood, this just might be the one for you!

Story set-up is good. But the heroine not so much.

The story reads like Christian romance. There isn't any reference to God, but it just seems overly wholesome and has more than a sweet romance feel to it.
Heather is jaded by the past men in her life who have done her wrong and wonders if there are honorable men in the world who want forever love. Jamey is a man who believes in happily ever afters because that's what's in his family and he desperately wants it for himself.
The setup for this story is good. The two characters are attracted to each other and ultimately want the same thing out of life. Unfortunately, the story starts to fall apart when Heather has a mini flip out about Jamey telling her that he has to work and can't come to her work party. I kept hoping that somehow the story would turn around and end up being enjoyable after this point but Heather just wasn't likeable.

Jamey just had to meet the nurse he seen dancing and singing to
Jamey just had to meet the nurse he seen dancing and singing to "Santa Baby" in the grocery store. He helped her out at the store and she told him if he came to the pediatric department Christmas party, she'd give him a plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies. Because he's a new recruit, he gets all the crappy shifts at the fire department, which means he has to cancel on her. Heather's been hurt in the past and she takes his cancellation as a sign that he's not trustworthy. Will Jamey be able to show Heather that she can trust him? Read this heartwarming Christmas short story about a fireman and the nurse that warms his heart.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
