In high school, they’d burned fast and hot. Now is their chance to find out if the sparks that linger will ignite a whole new flame.

The only thing Darcy Miller ever wanted more than gorgeous troublemaker Griffin Strong was to shake off the dust of small-town Revival, Illinois, and head to the big city—even if she had to leave him behind. Ten years later, Darcy is the ultimate New Yorker, writing a sex blog and living on designer cocktails and the pulse of urban life. That is, until she hears that Revival plans to seize her mother’s house right after the holidays, thanks to the new mayor—who is none other than Darcy’s ex…

Griffin couldn’t have asked for a more dangerous Christmas gift. Curvy, sassy Darcy is every bit as delectable as the wild child she was in high school—and just as determined to stir up problems. But Griffin learned long ago to straighten up and fly right in order to make changes in the town he loves. Keeping his reputation wholesome is a big part of that. If only Darcy didn’t make him want to take his place on the naughty list with her, right under the mistletoe…

Ivy's review

The Good

-Am I ready for the holidays? Though I’m still in deep denial (Christmas is WEEKS away people!) I found myself enjoying this little holiday themed novella that’s part of Something New series (though could work as standalone).

-The deal is this: Darcy vowed she would never return to her little town of Revival, and she most certainly would never see Griffin, the bad boy who broke her out and stayed behind when she flew the coop for New York. Years later, her mother is in danger of losing her house, Darcy comes back and finds out that alot of things have changed, including her ex (now Mayor of Revival) Griffin. Well you can guess what happens. Yep, a second chance romance.

-Character building is on point, but it has to be in a novella. Ms. Dawson has a knack for crafting characters that can keep a reader engaged and believing in their connection. The firsts (meet, kiss, sex) are hot and makes the pages fly by, which made me a little sad because the story wrapped up before I knew it. Which leads me to…

-Lack of page count has affected the main conflict which was a bit flimsy and resolved quickly.

The Bottom Line

All in all, a sexy, little, tasty treat to tide me over ‘til the next Something New book. If you haven’t read Ms. Dawson’s books yet and you love character driven contemporaries, I encourage you to try her out.
