It's Christmas in Copper Ridge, and love is waiting to be unwrapped…

Falling for a bad boy once is forgivable. Twice would just be foolish. When Sabrina Leighton first offered her teenage innocence to gorgeous, tattooed Liam Donnelly, he humiliated her, then left town. The hurt still lingers. But so does that crazy spark. And if they have to work together to set up her family winery's new tasting room by Christmas, why not work him out of her system with a sizzling affair?

Thirteen years ago, Liam's boss at the winery offered him a bribe—leave his teenage daughter alone and get a full ride at college. Convinced he wasn't good enough for Sabrina, Liam took it. Now he's back, as wealthy as sin and with a heart as cold as the Oregon snow. Or so he keeps telling himself. Because the girl he vowed to stay away from has become the only woman he needs, and this Christmas could be just the beginning of a lifetime together…

Another great read from this series. (Plus, aeaser excerpt at the end for book one in a spin-off series, and a bonus novella that is a prequel! It's like getting a surprise Christmas present from Maisey Yates!) Christmastime Cowboy is a second-chance romance/enemies-to-lovers hybrid. Practically my catnip! Liam and Sabrina were close in high school--friends, and she hoped, something more--until he rejected her (crushingly, though at least in private) and left for parts unknown, never to return...until he does. And of course they need to work together on a project for their respective workplaces--so you know where that is going, right? Liam and Sabrina had a lot of issues to work out--within themselves, with their families, and in their relationship. Though it felt like slow going at times (is there anything worse than those relationship-with-an-expiration-date plots? So. Much. Angst) they both eventually got to somewhere at least close to where they needed to be in what felt like a realistic way. I loved seeing Liam's interactions with his family (Must. Read. Books 1 & 2, dang it. ASAP) and seeing Clara again, this time as Sabrina's friend and coworker. Grassroots Winery (Sabrina's workplace) is also providing a springboard to the next series, since Olivia lives in Gold Valley. Can't wait for book one! (Though, okay...waiting will give me time to get to Finn and Cain's books, at least. I'll get right on that!) Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

The last Donnelly just may be down for the count! Liam has always been the hardest to read and the most standoffish, even with his family. We've been getting hints that something happened with Sabrina back when they were teenagers that left it a bitter subject for him, so it's fun to finally get their story! The Copper Ridge characters are always a joy to read and the plot is always thick with family love and angst. Sabrina Leighton has never forgiven her teenage crush Liam Donnelly for rejecting and humiliating her all those years ago when she put her heart on the line and offered herself to him. Hurt and anger has festered and even though she has told herself she despises him, she still finds herself comparing every man she meets to how he made her feel ... and being let down when nothing ever comes close. She's being forced to work with him to get a new tasting room project completed before the Christmas festivities begin, but she's so not happy about it! Liam Donnelly had a nightmare of a childhood and left it scarred and feeling like he wasn't good enough for a goodhearted person like Sabrina, so when her father offered him a free ride to college just to leave his daughter alone, he took the opportunity. He went on to prosper and make a lot of money ... and now is back in Copper Ridge playing his part at working the ranch with his brothers. It's obvious every time they run into each other that the draw and attraction is still there, so eventually they agree to act on it and get it out of their systems while they are being forced to work together on this project ... but when all is said and done, will either of them be able to walk away?

I have loved the Copper Ridge series from the very start, but I do believe the Donnelly brothers are my favorites from the bunch. There is just something about the sexy, brooding, broken men that had me not only swooning over them but also connecting with them and the strong women they have fallen for. Liam Donnelly has been the toughest nut to crack of the bunch. There is just something very vulnerable in the standoffish way he meets the world. And when he finally opens up, the hurt, the years of pain, the hunger for acceptance and the need to be enough, to be loved, to be noticed, and not abandoned, not to be left behind, not to be overlooked when the scars of his childhood are revealed, it floored me with the deep, raw emotions pouring out of him. Liam might come off as a scrooge that stole all the cheer, yet inside there is a man who fiercely protects his own, who sacrifices for his loved ones, who holds his true family, his brothers, dear to his heart. He says he has done one honorable thing in his life, and that was to walk away from the young Sabrina Leighton when temptation was too much. Sabrina might have gotten over Liam much sooner than the 13 years it has taken from her but when it is a friend who turns their back on you, when it is the one person you trusted, opened up to, counted on to have your back that walks away from you without a word, the sting goes deeper, and the wound never really had the opportunity to heal. Sabrina is a strong woman, much stronger than she considered herself to be. She knows what she wants and goes after it. She stands what she believes in, and is willing to face her past, her troubles, even if she has to bite her lip through the showdown. I loved the fragile yet passion filled connection between Sabrina and Liam. It was such a beautiful mix of tenderness, adoration, and raw lust. With all the talk of temporary, it had the makings of something lasting and powerful, something that could make a big impact if they let it roar. The story touches all the emotions. It has a touch of the magic of Christmas, it has that strong bond between the brothers. It has those delicate teenage feelings of first love, it has the swoon-worthy possibilities of second chance romance, those steamy, sweep you off your feet love scenes. And it has the emotions that seem to touch you all the way into the deepest corners of your soul and makes you want to shout out loud and claim that you indeed are enough. I smiled, I sighed, I swooned, I was in tears, and I chuckled and laughed. I enjoyed the marvelous storytelling and beautiful, smoothly flowing writing. And the epilogue truly paid a delightful tribute to the Donnelly brothers and their families. I already miss them all... ~ Five Spoons!

I feel like I've been waiting for Liam's story forever, but it was definitely worth the wait. I loved Sabrina. She's loyal and stronger than she thinks and I loved being in her head. Liam has always been stoic and stand off-ish and stubborn and he was those things in this story as well. Together they have a long history, a lot of feelings, and a crap load of chemistry. Their banter and button pushing was fantastic and the best part was reading them work through everything. It all felt realistic. Plot wise, it was what I expected. The breakup/angsty parts weren't too long and I love seeing the other Donnelly brothers and their families. The ending was perfection and the epilogue was exactly what I wanted to see. I'm pretty sure this is the end of this series, but I'm excited to see what Olivia does as the beginning of the new one. **Huge thanks to Harlequin Books for providing the arc free of charge**

Maisey Yates does a great job with the romance between Liam Donnelly and Sabrina Leighton. Liam was Sabrina’s first love and she could never forget him. He couldn’t forget her either. Their happy ever after was well done.
