Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Cheeky Christmas by Aria Cole
Everly Grayson is sick of her small life in a small town. She dreams of bigger things, so when an opportunity for something bigger comes along, she grabs it with both hands. Now she's on her way to a sprawling country estate in rural England to work as an au pair.
However, her new adventure loses some of its shine when she finds out her new boss, wealthy single dad Mason Kingsley, is a surly and foul-tempered ogre. Yet despite his temperament, he consumes the air in her lungs and dominates her every waking thought. Especially when she sees him being as sweet as candy to his five-year-old daughter.
Little does she know that he is just as affected by her. While his attraction to her drives him to distraction, he wants more than just her body. Much more.
Warning: If you don't like rich, over-the-top alpha British men who fall hard and fast, turn back now. This holiday season, you'll lose more than your Christmas stockings and light up brighter than your tree when you fall in love with Mason Kingsley.
Note: Cheeky Christmas is a sweet, English treat that ends at 53% and for a limited time you can enjoy my cocky, Irish Prince in Chasing Charlie immediately after! Pour the eggnog and settle in for a night with my handsome British Billionaires!
So this is a very sweet single dad charming and loveable read. The only thing in all of that I wanted was more depth between the two main characters. It was good but there was potential to be more. And I wished for more.
Everly is needed a change in her life. Tired of her life in a small small town she takes a job for the holidays and travels to England. Her employer's daughter Savannah is sweet and innocent asking all the right questions between she and her father. But this is where I wanted more than I was given. Savannah stole the show for me having her Pop wrapped completely around her finger and heart. And .. of course Everly has a secret that she is harboring.
Mason is a grumpy man on the outside. However on the inside he is wondering what in the world he just did hiring this amazing and beautiful woman. Seeing her interact with his daughter is the icing on the cake. The man knows he will never get married again because love isn’t in the cards for him. What he didn’t know is this American girl might just change his mind.
One of my things is the man calling the woman Kitten … gah .. I just can't. But again the interaction between the two characters wasn’t as in depth as I would have liked. I would have liked to know more about them and why things were the way they were.
BUT on that note this is a pleasant read and a good one to click up by the fire this holiday season. Thank you for the ARC. Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
