My eX-MAS Emergency by Jennifer Peel


Very few in Aspen Lake expected that I, Calista Monroe, their most notorious wild child, would ever amount to anything besides being a model prisoner. So imagine their surprise when I returned as the hospital’s newest ER doctor. Believe me, no one is more surprised than I am. I had vowed to never return, even if it was the last safe haven during the zombie apocalypse. But when my niece, Quinn, begged me to come home, I couldn’t say no. My plan is to stay out of trouble this time, and above all, avoid Quinn’s uncle Tristan—the man I love to hate and the reason I left Aspen Lake.

But trouble starts to brew when my niece gets it into her pretty head that her uncle and I need to reconcile. The devious little thing insists we deck the halls together all season long. And since I’ll do anything to make Quinn happy, I agree, believing I’m completely immune to Tristan’s charm. Except the joke’s on me. Who knew that Tristan’s biggest regret was letting me go? And the infuriating man seems willing to do everything possible to win me back. Well, it’s going to take a Christmas miracle for me to give him a second chance. Unfortunately for my plan, our chemistry could set a blizzard on fire. Now I have a major ex emergency on my hands.

Do I give my niece her Christmas wish, or do I let the love between Tristan and me flatline once and for all?

To say that I love this book might just be the biggest understatement of the year.  It really hit my sweet spot and filled me up with all the things I love in a book.  Second chance romance is one of my favorite kind of books.  There is always a bit of angst because, well, they did break up but with that is also a knowledge of the sparks and attraction and love.  It's just all so yummy. You will want to block a whole day out to read. It is SO, SO good. It's everything I love about reading rom-com books. You have a second chance romance, enemies to lovers, evil parents, an adorable niece, hot kisses and plenty of yummy romantic tension.

Tristan comes into this story with a mountain to climb in regards to Calista. I mean, he deserves to climb that mountain and Calista definitely doesn't make it easy for him. Did I love Tristan? Yes, I did. He worked so hard at redeeming himself. I loved seeing and feeling his adoration for Calista. And Calista? She is just plain awesome. I want her to be my best friend.  Just wait. You'll see. 

This book is filled with magic. It's swirling on every page and I am basking in the afterglow. If ever there was a book to curl up with, it's this one!! Love, love, love, love. 

This book is on KU if you have that.
