(A standalone Heartbreaker Bay novel)
Run for the hills—temporarily. That’s Colbie Albright’s plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie’s so over it that she’s under it. She’s also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she’s pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won’t be a stranger for long.
Spence’s commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn’t have to worry about the powerful—okay, crazy hot—chemistry he’s got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself... just because she’s gorgeous and a great listener…just because she “gets” Spence immediately doesn’t mean he won’t be able to let Colbie go. Does it?
…and hope for a miracle.
Now the clock’s ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime.
A must read!!!
I was so excited to return to Heartbreaker Bay and get Spence's story, and it didn't disappoint at all!!
Spence and Colbie are perfect for each other. They both have secrets, but eventually grow close enough to open up about them. Colbie is sweet and fun, and has a vulnerable side that you can't help but feel for. Spence is sexy, nerdy, and the perfect hero. There's a few surprises in this book, a few things I never saw coming throughout the series. Add in the perfect group of interfering friends, and you've got an awesome read. I would definitely recommend this!!
Shalvis at her best!
Chasing Christmas Eve
Chasing Christmas Eve is Jill Shalvis at her best. This fourth edition to the Heartbreaker Bay series is sensitive, insightful, and laugh-out-loud funny. The main characters Spence and Chole are adorable, interesting and loveable. Spence is a new favorite book boyfriend. Spence’s relationship with his grandpa is touching. Loved the recurring visits with other characters like Elle, Archer, Finn, Pru, and others from earlier books in the series. I totally enjoyed this novel from beginning to end.
Sweet holiday romance
Chasing Christmas Eve is the perfect formula for a contemporary romance. Deep, engaging characters, just enough misunderstanding and disfunction, and the right amount of chemistry and romance.
I immediately found myself sucked into the story and the various characters, even though this is the first book of the series I’ve read. So much so that I want to plan a trip to San Francisco and find this little enclave in Cows Hollow (it’s a real place – who knew?) – that’s how engrossed I became with this book.
I will admit I had an eye roll moment toward the end. If insta-love isn’t your thing, you may find as much enjoyment in this book. I was willing to overlook it because the rest of the story was so well written.
