From Rivalry to Revelry…to Romance?
Competitive swimmer turned real estate magnate Michael Kelly is tastier than a Christmas cookie. But now Charlotte Locke’s sexy former lover is her top business rival…and the father of her unborn child. Determined to keep her professional cool, the hotel heiress hides her delicate condition from her family—and from her commitmentphobic ex. Until Michael moves in next door, exposing a desire left unquenched and Charlotte’s pregnancy secret.
Michael may not be daddy material, but losing Charlotte and their baby isn’t an option. He’ll close the deal at any cost—even if it takes a Christmas miracle to prove this playboy is reformed for good!
Holiday Baby Bombshell was an entertaining story in author Karen Booth’s Locke Legacy series. Back from a life hiatus overseas, Charlotte Locke is ready to take on the world and prove to her brothers she isn’t the family screw-up by asking for a chance to sell the condos in the family’s recently remodeled and historic hotel, The Grand Legacy. She doesn’t feel good about hiding her pregnancy from her brothers, but doesn’t want her situation to influence the decision to allow her to come on board and be a part of her family’s legacy. What he doesn’t expect is to find that her ex has already brokered a deal with her brother to be the realtor for the condos and thusly, will be her direct competition. A bit of drama, a whole lot of sexy, with a gorgeous hotel and the holiday season as a backdrop, Holiday Baby Bombshell is an excellent story to start off the holiday reading season.
One thing that was undeniable in this book was the attraction between Charlotte and Michael; we see it right away and every time their paths cross. I found their situation interesting in many ways leaving them both responsible for the divide between them. There were so many moments between these two when you could see the respect, admiration, and caring between them but they had a hard time being on the same page as far as a relationship was concerned. Both had some baggage from their childhoods that left them with different expectations of relationships, love, and families and they struggled at communicating their feelings well. However, it was those little moments where they let their guards down that the love between them shone through making me see that despite themselves they would figure it out eventually.
It has been so easy to fall in love with the Locke family, The Grand Legacy, and this series. Ms. Booth offers up another wonderfully sexy romance in Holiday Baby Bombshell
