It’s a week in holiday hell.
Worse, it comes with an elf—his little sister’s gorgeous best friend—but Lilly Maddox isn’t so little anymore. And as an annoyingly festive reporter looking to make her mark, she’s there to document his every move.
Justin’s always had a thing for Lilly, but he refuses to go there with her. Ever. Not after watching what his mom went through as a cop’s wife. But now that they’re trapped in his squad car, avoiding her just got a lot more complicated…

My Rating: 4 stars
Mistletoe Kisses is one of those stories that you could easily imagine as a Christmas movie. It has all the earmarks that would play out well on film. It’s a combination romance in the sense of lighthearted, laugh out loud moments – and some deeper issues, often part of the past that must be dealt with before any happy ending is possible for Justin and Lilly.
I have to be blunt and say that although I did connect with Lilly, it was often difficult to connect with Justin. His views of the past pushed him to say and do things that took him down a peg or two in my view of him as a hero. Yet, his was also a very human reaction so believable but not making him my next book boyfriend is probably the easiest way to put my reaction to him.
I enjoyed Mistletoe Kisses enough to put a new to me author on my list of author’s new titles to watch out for. If you’re in the mood for a Christmas Romance that touches your emotions, gives you a few laughs and maybe has you thinking as well, then you’d enjoy this story.
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
