I am becoming a massive Harlequin fan and really enjoy the romance of them all. Thanks to Rachels tours, for opening my eyes to these books and their wonderful authors.
I read Christmas Reunion in Paris by Liz Fielding and absolutely loved it. So was extremely happy to go back to the Harrington’s. This time we got to read about James brother, Hugo.
Christmas has arrived…
And she’s spending it with her boss!
New Yorker Erin is intrigued when Hugo Harrington asks for her help on a hotel renovation in London, just weeks before Christmas! But Erin soon discovers how personal this project is to her brooding boss. Watching him wrestle with the memories of his past uncovers a side to Hugo she’s never seen. And then a stolen snowbound kiss changes everything…
As my followers on Bookstagram will know and anyone who reads my blog I love chemistry in a book. Especially when it’s electrifying like Erin’s and Hugo’s. That saying is true, ‘if you have chemistry you only need one other thing, timing’. Oh how very fitting for Erin and Hugo who are both battling with their pasts and definitely not looking for a relationship. A kiss when snowed in the hotel one night, could this be just the fun they both need?!
I loved how the story progressed and felt this book was fast paced… I read this in 4 settings and if I didn’t have work or had to get my 8 hours sleep, I could have definitely read this in one go. It was brilliant and the setting couldn’t have been more perfect. I loved the London sightseeing scenes, its made me want to hop on a train and go visit all the lights at the most wonderful time of the year. If only I could go to hotel and the Christmas Eve party!
I really warmed and took to Erin early on, I thought she was an awesome women, literally juggling everything life threw at her. I loved her no nonsense attitude, how she was with Hugo was great. Even though he was her boss, she knew how to handle him. Girl Power at its best!! I also felt for her, what she had to go through so young. Yet it also made her a badass women, with a soft side that I just loved!
Hugo was a massive control freak, a closed book, who only cared about work and getting his latest hotel up and running. Highly successful he was used to getting his own way. However you couldn’t help but have a fondness for him, plus he sounds hot!! I liked how we got to know Hugo as the book went on. His childhood Christmas memories were so sweet and lovely. In Christmas Reunion in Paris we got to briefly hear of him and his family past but this book allowed you to really find out what had happened and what made Hugo the way he was.
I don’t know what I adored more – the romance, the setting, the characters or the plot it was all wonderful.
I wouldn’t say you need to read first book, but I just really enjoyed it so would highly recommend it too.
