A Santini Christmas by Melissa Schroeder - Review/Giveaway

Join the Santinis as they gather together not for the joy of the season, but in crisis. One major event throws everything they hold dear into jeopardy, causing Joey to travel back to the memories of when she and Papa first fell in love.

Joey Antonio doesn’t have time for men. Her focus is on saving money for art school. She definitely doesn’t need some jarhead Romeo bothering her. True, every time they run into each other she finds herself more attracted to him—not to mention the kisses he steals are becoming addictive. Still, no matter how sexy the Marine is, she isn’t a woman who is willing to risk her heart.

Stewart Santini, known to everyone as Papa, is convinced Joey is the woman for him. Sexy, smart and tough—exactly how he likes his women. He finds himself falling even before he knows what hit him…but there is one problem: Joey is willing to share her bed, but not her life.

Papa knows Joey is surprised when he agrees to a casual affair, but he has other plans to set him motion. This is one Marine who will battle to win the most precious thing in the world to him: Joey Antonio’s heart.

My Review:

I first met Joey and Papa in their children’s stories and I fell in love with them. I definitely enjoyed going back in time and learning how Joey and Papa met.

Joey is the kind of strong character that I love, she’s capable and very much able to take care of herself. She isn’t looking for a man in her life but Stewart “Papa” Santini blindsides her and the rest is history. They have a beautiful love story that holds true through the test of time.

Papa knows Joey is skittish so he approaches her slowly but steadily and their love blooms. Especially since Papa knows she’s the one from the moment he meets her.

With the added bonus of the update on what the Santini brothers are doing this book was a real gem and a great holiday story that left me with that warm fuzzy feeling.
