5/5 Review: A Bad Boy for Christmas (Second Chance Book 3) by Jessica Lemmon


 
'Tis the Season to Be Naughty
Connor McClain knows what he wants. And after four harrowing years in Afghanistan, that's a quiet life in the lakeside town of Evergreen Cove. But coming home has land mines of its own-the most dangerous of them being long-legged bombshell Faith Garrett. Now getting her into his arms this holiday is going to require more than mistletoe . . .

With a cheating ex behind her, all Faith wants is a relaxing holiday free from man drama. And even though every moment with gorgeous Connor is a sweet temptation, Faith is determined not to give in. But Jack Frost has other plans, and soon Faith and Connor are snowbound in a winter wonderland with only the sparks flying between them to keep them warm. As one hot kiss leads to another, they'll have to decide if they're ready to give each other the best gift of all-love.
 
**********
 
Connor McClain is an ex military bad ass who's heart is hardened and has a snarky attitude. Except when it comes to Faith Garrett. Faith wants nothing more than independence after dealing with her cheating Ex. But a few hot kisses from Connor sets her on fire and has her questioning herself. 

When Faith becomes paranoid that someone is trying to break into her home Connor goes into protection mode and pushes right into Faiths life, weather she wants him there or not. Will the two end up killing each other, or let the sparks fly and give in?

I really enjoyed this book, despite the fact that it started a bit slow. On the plus side, it started in October, and gave the couple plenty of time to get to know each other better, and create some kind of bond. Jessica writes scenes very well and I was able to picture each scene with clarity. I liked both characters and really enjoyed the banter between them, and the sex scenes were hot! I felt the relationship between them was very real, and the heroine was a strong character, and stuck to her goals of independence  (most of the time!) Jessica made the book very believable, and that defiantly works for me! 

Overall it was a great read, a wonderful love story with some great sex scenes thrown in!
