Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis Blog Tour


It’s Christmastime again in Heartbreaker Bay!

When Sean O’Riley shows up at the Hartford Bed & Breakfast for his older brother’s bachelor weekend, he’s just hoping to make it through the weekend. What he’s not expecting is to come face to face with the woman he lost his virginity to a decade ago—a woman he’s never really forgotten.

The last time Lotti Hartford saw Sean, she told him she loved him while he said nothing. Now, ten years later, she’s just looking for a good time. For once, she wants to be the wild and free one, and Sean – the good time guy – is the perfect candidate.

But as the weekend continues, Sean realizes that after a lifetime of being the hook-up king, he’s ready to find happily-ever-after, and he wants it with Lotti. But will she open her heart to him again? As Christmas sweeps through the little B&B, he can only hope love and magic are in the air.

At the empathetic tone in Sean’s voice, Lotti’s heart and stomach and head all clenched in unison. “What do you mean you can’t give me what I want?” she asked. “All you have to do is walk away.”

“Tried that already,” he said. “And it was the biggest mistake of my life.” He brought her hand up to his mouth and met her gaze over their entwined hands.

He was looking at her like... well, she wasn’t sure what was going on in his head, but her thoughts were racing along with her pulse.

“You’re incredible, Lotti. I hope you know that.” Very slowly, clearly giving her time to object, he pulled her into him.

Her breath caught at the connection and his eyes heated in response as he slid a hand up her spine and then back down again, pressing her in tight to him from chest to thighs and everywhere in between. His nose was cold at the crook of her neck, but his breath was warm against her skin. She felt his lips press against the sensitive spot just behind her ear and she shivered. “You’re trembling,” he said, his voice low. “Are you cold?”

“No,” she whispered. Try the opposite of cold...

“Nervous?”

“No.” Not even close. The way his mouth moved across her skin was making her warm all over. Not that she could articulate that with his body pressed to hers and his fingers dancing over her skin. She was literally quivering as the memories of what it felt like to be touched by him washed over her, as if no time at all had gone by.

Yes, she’d let him think that their time together had sucked for her. But it hadn’t. Not even close. That long-ago night he’d evoked feelings and a hunger in her that she’d never forgotten. “I’ve just had a long day,” she said.

“I know. I’m going to make it better.” He pressed a kiss at the juncture of her jaw and ear before he made his way to her lips for a slow, hot kiss, his mouth both familiar and yet somehow brand-new. She was so far gone that when he pulled back she protested with a moan, but he held her tight, staring down at her with heated eyes. “Just checking,” he murmured.

“Checking what?”

“That you want this as badly as I do.”

Veronica☆☆☆☆
Sean has organised a bachelors weekend away for his brother Finn, Finn's fiancé Pru, and their friends. But when he turns up to the B&B, he discovered it is run by Lotti, the first girl he was ever with. Lotti promptly ignores Sean much to the amusement of his friends. A natural disaster strikes and Sean and his friends end up stuck at the B&B, giving Sean the opportunity to try for a second chance with Lotti.

This is a fun romance and it felt like Lotti and Sean met up again at exactly the right time in their lives, like they were meant to end up together. I also enjoyed spending more time with the crew from Heartbreaker Bay. If you are looking for a quick, easy romance set around Christmas, I'd recommend Holiday Wishes. While it is part of the Heartbreaker Bay series, it can be read as a standalone.

This is a novella that fits in after book #4 of the series. In book #1, we enjoyed the romance that developed between Finn and Pru, and now we see them getting ready for their wedding. Sean is running the show, and desperate to get it all right. He has always been a good time guy, but here we get to see him knocked off his feet by a re-encounter with his first real girlfriend. The fact that they had history made it possible to get a good story slotted into a short time frame.

This is a fun, sweet, short, and satisfying read for any fan of Ms. Shalvis's works – so it suited me very well! I look forward to reading more about the gang at Heartbreaker Bay.
