Review: All I Want For Christmas by Jennifer Gracen
Musician and bar owner Sean McKinnon keeps busy – too busy for a love life. He blew it with Cassie all those years ago, and no one has held a candle to her since.
But then one fateful night, of all the people in New York City, Cassandra walks into his bar, and he’s drawn to her as strongly as ever. She wants nothing to do with him, but he’s not going to give up so easily.
Can a bit of New York Christmas magic help two people take a second chance on true love?
Sean broke Cass’s heart seven years ago after being madly in love. He didn’t think he was good enough for her so decided to leave and make a name for himself on the west coast. A heartbroken Cass throws herself into school and work. When Cass sees Sean again, she is equally smitten and angry. He wants a chance to win her heart again and she is not having it. Can love triumph again or will bitterness and hurt destroy this second chance romance?
I didn’t enjoy this story as much as the first one but I was still cheering Cass on hoping for her well-deserved happily ever after. I did feel Sean’s character was a little stiff but his persistence to win his Cassie back was heartwarming. The secondary characters supported Sean and Cass well and I’m looking forward to reading more about the magic of this New York Christmas.
