I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review by author Bethany Shaw. When Amy Green is left to close up the store she never dreamed they would be robbed or worse. Right in the nick of time Officer Cooper Reed comes in to save Amy. When he takes her out for a meal the restaurant has 2 gunmen causing problems and Cooper is hurt in the process by a wolf, his brother Caleb. Things get tense when Amy's brother has to explain things to Cooper, handling this might not be so easy.
For Amy Christmas has brought nothing, but heartache and sadness. She can't wait for this season to over because it's already showing signs of being just like the others. Though this year has something that the others didn't, Cooper. Cooper soon finds himself in the middle of a world her never dreamed existed, but if Amy is in it it can't be bad. I loved how Cooper treats Amy. He finally shows her how a real man treats a lady. He has his worked cut out for him because Amy can't even handle crowds right now for good reasons. Cooper is going to do everything he can to give Amy the best Christmas ever. Let me tell you reading the scene set on Christmas morning will make you believe the magic of the season.
