    Oh so cute. I really did enjoy this fast and cute novel by Victo

    Oh so cute. I really did enjoy this fast and cute novel by Victoria James. I liked the romance, and the baby-aspect. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy in the heart location. There were some parts of the story that I felt could improve. Mainly I thought the romance happened pretty quickly, and then ended really wasn’t explained very well. I felt like the climax of the novel wasn’t really a climax at all it sort of just fizzled out. One minute you thought there was a big moment where they were going to need to fight for what they wanted and then it just passed over that part. It was a good, cute, and romantic light read, but I felt there wasn’t too much emotion that was reeling me in. My favourite moment was probably when Jackson and Hannah first meet and Jackson is quite the jerk, then he tries and to make up for it. I loved how Hannah could break Jackson down and make him into a warmer and more loving man, and, although fast, I did really enjoy the evolution of their romance.




    Good:




    Jackson—A good guy deep down that was just trying to make a life for himself




    Bad: 




    Hannah—I wasn’t a big fan of Hannah, especially near then. I just started questioning her character and didn’t quite understand how Jackson wasn’t questioning it as well. 




    Sadly some of the story was lacking in general. I didn’t feel the love, probably because I thought it came quickly, and I didn’t like that the climax was sort of skipped over and never really dealt with.




    Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):




    Overall the writing was easy to follow. I never tripped up or was really confused, and overall I did enjoy the story. I just wish there was a little more detail and depth to really get me involved.




    This book was provided courtesy of the author/publisher for review; however, this is no way affected my review.

    The Billionaire's Christmas Baby is the perfect Christmas read,

    The Billionaire's Christmas Baby is the perfect Christmas read, warming your heart and making you smile.  Hannah Woods is a social worker who occasionally crosses the line, caring to much for her cases.  That is what happened with Louise, a new young mother who Hannah had been working with.  When she walks out of the Church where she has been holding a meeting one night, she finds a basket with a little pink bundle in it.  She automatically knows that it is Emily, Louise's baby, and her heart drops, fearing the worst.  Louise asks Hannah, in the note she left attached to Emily, to find  her brother, stating that he would raise Emily.  That is exactly what Hannah vows to do, even though it requires her to break almost every rule in the book to accomplish.  When she finally manages to trace down Louise's brother, he not only has changed his name, he is a very rich business owner who has done everything in his power to distance himself from his family, wanting nothing to do with them.  After making the six-hour drive to Jackson Pierce's cabin, and with a blizzard now starting, Hannah makes her way to the door and knocks.  When the door opens she finds one of the most handsome men she has ever seen.  As soon as she mentions his sister, she gets to the door slammed in her face and is shocked by the rudeness and coldness Jackson Pierce exudes.  After a second unsuccessful attempt to talk to him, she angrily makes her way back to the car, and to Emily. 




    In the meantime, Jackson begins to feel guilty about the way he treated Hannah.  He thought she was probably someone looking for money or one of his sister's low-life friends, but on closer observation, she doesn't fit that image at all.  He walks out and convinces Hannah to stay, because there is no way he can let her take off in this storm, though convincing her takes quite a bit of effort and he is somewhat shocked when he sees her with a little baby.  Hannah's plan to win Jackson over and convince him to adopt his dead sister's baby is foiled when he overhears her talking on the phone and finds out he is Emily's uncle.  He tells Hannah he wants nothing to do with the baby, and is very angry.  In the meantime, the storm intensifies and Hannah and Jackson are forced to spend several days together.  Hannah must convince Jackson that he is what Emily needs, but in the process, she finds out that he might just be what she needs to.  Jackson is drawn to Hannah and his cold core begins to melt, showing the good heart that lies beneath.  Try as he may to deny it, Jackson is as drawn to Emily as she is to him, though neither want to admit.  Yes there is the physical attraction, but there is something else there to.  They find themselves unintentionally sharing things with the other that they normally would never have let anyone see, but is this enough to change Jackson's mind, and if he does, what will it take to get Emily, and what obstacles will they have to overcome in the process?




    I really enjoyed The Billionaire's Christmas Baby.  I loved the story line and the characters.  Hannah has been raised in the system, so her heart goes out to the children.  Despite what she has been through, she loves Christmas and everything that goes along with it.  Jackson on the other hand, is a bit of a Scrooge, retreating every December to his secluded cabin to escape Christmas and the memories that go along with it, but Hannah sees beneath his handsome facade into his true heart, and the glimpses she gets of this man, touch her heart and her soul.  Jackson also has feeling stirring within him that he didn't know he had, and finds himself wanting to protect this beautiful woman he is quickly becoming attached to.  The romance is hot and so is the chemistry between these two.  I enjoyed watching the relationship emerge between these two, as what is deemed as a business relationship, quickly turns into so much more.  The Billionaire's Christmas Baby is like a Hallmark movie with a little sizzle on paper and completely warms your heart and makes you smile.  If you are looking for a really good contemporary holiday romance, then you should definitely check this book out.

    This wonderful book focusses on the very thing we tend to take for granted at this time of year amongst the craziness of shopping, wrapping and cooking. Family.

    Victoria James has handled a sensitive issue with compassion and given us a story that is heartfelt, touching and romantic, with moments that will make you smile, feel complete joy and tug on your heartstrings. Jackson and Hannah are wonderful characters; he is the guarded grumpy single CEO happiest in his own company and she the fiercely protective and caring social worker determined to place his orphaned niece in his care. But their similarities run deeper than either could imagine and my heart went out to them both.

    Whilst I could see where the story was heading, there were still some lovely unexpected surprises along the way. It is a captivating read filled with emotion and is one that I would highly recommend, festive period or not.

    Dull.

    Dull. I skimmed over several chapters, read the epilogue. Too much description, not enough dialogue. Not enough romance. Not recommending this one.

    The Billionaire's Christmas Baby

    Reviewed by Kim
    for Read Your Writes Book Reviews

    The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby is a story I REALLY wanted to read. After reading one of Victoria James’ other books, I pretty much just had to get all of her books. I must say this book did EXACTLY what I needed it to do. I’ve been reading like a robot for weeks now and I pretty much was looking at reading like a chore and I wasn’t enjoying it. I needed this book to pick me up and make me smile and fall in love with reading again. It definitely did that.

    In The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby, Victoria James has given you two characters who are each in need of healing, learning to trust, finding love, and a family they each have craved for a long, long time.

    Jackson Pierce has tried to leave his past behind in him. After losing his mother at a young age and protecting his younger sister from their abusive father, only to lose her to drugs, Jackson has left his family and poor childhood behind. He is now the founder and CEO of a large computer software company.

    Jackson has no idea how much his life is about to change when he answers the knock at his getaway cabin door. His unwelcomed visitor is none other than Hannah Woods, a social worker who has committed the professional no-no of becoming overly involved in one of her cases. Hannah discovered Baby Emily abandoned on the church steps by her mother, Louise. There was a note attached to her basket telling Hannah to find Emily’s uncle and that he will raise her. Hannah does just that against protocol.

    When a blizzard traps Jackson, Hannah, and Emily at his cabin, the attraction between Jackson and Hannah builds as does the tension of Jackson refusing to adopt Emily. With the possibility of one of these three dying in the winter storm, one will come to a life changing decision and have to find a way to make the other trust in the love they are starting to form. One will need to embrace their past in order to move forward. The other will need to let go of the past in order to have the life and future they have always dreamed about.

    This is truly a story that will pull at your heartstrings and make you believe in the the power of faith, love, and the magic of Christmas and all it entails.

    The Billionaire's Christmas Baby is a beautiful, heartwarming story. Hannah finds a baby abandoned on a snowy winter night. It brings back all the pain of her childhood. She's determined that this child will not go into the foster care system that failed her. She will find the baby's uncle and convince him to adopt Emily. She locates him but he doesn't want the baby. A blizzard forces Hannah and the baby to stay. Can she change his mind? Will there be a Christmas miracle? Victoria James weaves a tale of love, forgiveness and healing. Hannah and Jackson both had painful childhoods. They carry the scars. Will a baby give them the courage to take a chance on love? I laughed at the sparring between these two and I cried as they struggled to put their past behind them and open their hearts to love. This perfect holiday story lifted my spirits.

    Great Book!!

    Wow, another winner from author Victoria James. I love holiday romances, babies and stories about billionaires. So after reading the book blurb, The Billionaire's Christmas Baby became a must read. It is a wonderful book, replete with great characters, a plot that twists and turns in all the right places, and an intelligent love story.

    Social worker Hannah Woods spent her childhood in the foster care system and in spite of the harrowing experiences she lived through, evolved into a smart, beautiful, caring woman. She takes her job very seriously and much to the dismay of her boss, works the system to ensure that the children under her jurisdiction are well provided for.

    Billionaire software developer Jackson Pierce is an unemotional workaholic. After his mother died when he was just ten years old, his father transformed into a ruthless, violent dictator. Jackson did everything possible to protect himself and his younger sister Louise from his father's rages, but unfortunately, he could not protect Louise from herself as an adult. He spends each holiday season alone with his dog, in a remote cabin, without any cheer. He has no idea that before Louise died, she had a baby. Now Hannah is on a mission to get Jackson to adopt his niece, before she is forced into the foster care system.

    This is a heartwarming love story that will cause all your senses to remain on high alert. Ms. James is an excellent storyteller and her words kept me captivated from the very first paragraph in the prologue. This is an engaging holiday romance that should not be missed.

    ARC received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I think the highlight of this book is definitely the characters, particularly Hannah.  She is that person that every needy child needs to have in their lives.  She's the person that never gives up - on them, on their future, on finding them a place where they can belong.  Unfortunately, this attitude sometimes gets her in trouble as she tends to bend the rules a little to make things happen.  




    This attitude is what leads her to Jackson Piece though - and at first he finds it a major turn off.  She's pushy and thinks she knows whats best for him.  Eventually he realizes that there is so much more to her, and realizes that she is right - he needs his new baby neice as much as she needs him.




    As amazing as the message in this story was, I still had a hard time connecting.  The characters and the story just didn't call to me like the other Victoria James novella did.  There are still some amazing scenes and very wonderful dialog though - I think most readers would love this sweet story of hope.

    I¿ve had Christmas spirit since the start of November, but I can

    I’ve had Christmas spirit since the start of November, but I can fully assure you all that even if I wasn’t, The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby would bring it on with a bang! Filled with holiday cheer and tears, Victoria James once again managed to amaze me, by tugging on my heart string until I couldn’t take it anymore.
    Hannah Woods spends three weeks tracking down Jackson pierce, the uncle of the baby that’s been left on the church doorstep. She finds him and my initial thoughts were: “What a jackass!” A rich, successful, very good-looking jackass. I was intrigued to see how Victoria James was going to change my mind about him. I never thought I’d cry tons of ecstatic tears when she did.
    Taking on the impossible, Hannah goes ahead and agrees to Jackson’s terms, and man oh man are they some extreme terms. I loved Hannah completely. She could put Jackson in his place without even trying. And I’ve gotta hand it to her, turning a complete Scrooge into a Christmassy guy? Well done!
    But really, enough about them. I really just want to tell you all what I thought about this story. This story was completely heartfelt and gut-wrenching, and it really made me want to bake some Christmas cookies, but I didn’t, because the book distracted me so much that they would just burn. Victoria James succeeds in once again bringing polar opposites together. She created a fantastic novel that’s definitely worth more than one read. In fact, I think this books should become a Christmas staple to women all over, because that’s how fantastic it is!
    And, thanks a lot Victoria, for making me ruin my perfectly good mascara!

    Normally I'm a stickler for books being realistic. I normally do

    Normally I'm a stickler for books being realistic. I normally don't like to read books that have any type of insta-love. This one is kind of the exception. Maybe it's the Christmas theme. Maybe it's the fact that this is one of my must read authors. Either way, I really liked this book. I'm pretty sure I've read all of her books that she's put out. I liked her writing style. I like the flow. I totally expected to not like this book and yet I've read it twice now. (I'm one of those people who will read a book again when nothing new appeals)

    Hannah's had a tough life. She's made it her life's work to make sure other kids didn't go thru what she had. She even counsels expectant and new moms. She finds a baby outside a church she was holding a group meeting at. It belongs to one of the mothers she counseled. The note that was with the baby said to find the baby's uncle Christopher James and that he'd raise her. Sounds simple right?

    Jackson Pierce was a self made man. He's worked hard to become the CEO that he is today. He's worked hard to put his past as Christopher James behind him, and that includes forgetting about his sister Louise. When a strange woman shows up on his doorstep during a blizzard mentioning his sister he loses it and slams it in her face. Feeling guilty for his actions he invites her in out of the cold to stay in his guest room a night until the storm breaks.

    Hannah knows this is her only shot at keeping Emily out of the system. She's going to make the 24 hours count. She just wasn't expecting it to be so hard. The book follows along to see just how far she's willing to go for Emily, and what will happen when Hannah and Christopher/Jackson get to know eachother.

    The Billionaire's Christmas Baby by Victoria James is a sweet Christmas story.  Hannah Woods is a social work who finds a baby on her doorstep.  Now, she must find the baby's uncle.  Jackson Pierce has done what he can to try to move away from is past.  Hannah has arrived on his doorstep bring the bundle of joy.  At first Jackson is not ready to accept Emily but once he convinced he feels the only way is if Hannah and he get married.  

    Victoria James does it again with a wonderful story.   Hannah is a great character.  She is strong side and yet still vulnerable at times from her past history.  I love the way Victoria James describes Jackson he sound so tough on the exterior.

    I loved how most of the story take place in a Cabin during a blizzard.  This gives sense of closes for the character.  

    I love this story. This is a heartwarming story of how love leads to a holiday miracle.

    This is a heartfelt story. Hannah and Jackson are at odds the minute they meet. They both have very similar backgrounds and psychological problems. The difference is that Hannah is the eternal optimist always looking for a better outcome. Jackson has given up hope and is very guarded with his approach to life and emotions.

    Needless to say, there two are meant to butt heads and this makes this story very entertaining. In the middle of this, the author has placed a baby's future. I love how the story evolves and how our characters change and grow as trust develops. This is a wonderful Christmas story meant to uplift us all.
