Mr. December

Bah humbug. Jack Donovan, aka Mr. December from the Sexy Public Servants Charity Calendar, has no time for Christmas. This police detective is more troubled by the fact that veterinarian Kat Saunders is running an unpermitted, no-kill animal shelter out of her clinic. But when he needs help on an urgent case of an injured puppy, Christmas loving Kat comes to the rescue.

Kat needs a Christmas miracle. She’s determined to succeed in her dream career of helping all animals, both pets and strays. She won’t let a few neighborhood grinches stand in her way. Jack agrees to help Kat with her legal issues, and as they work closely together to save the puppy and the clinic, sparks ignite. As they draw closer, Kat wonders if some holiday magic might thaw Jack’s heart and turn this Scrooge into Kat’s true love for all seasons. A Christmas kiss under the mistletoe may be what it takes to find out…

When I started this book I was a little worried that it was going to be a insta-love kind of book and it actually was BUT even with the insta-love I thought this book was adorable and it took me a couple chapters to realize just how much I really love this book and the characters.

Jake and Kat are just to cute together. With a sort of arrangement to help him get his mom off his back and for him to help her save her shelter they work together but next expected to fall completely in love. Now I am not a fan of insta-love but I really like how it was done in this one. It was instant but it took sometime to build up and not that annoying type of build up for me it actually worked. For most of the book I just wanted them to have sex already the tension was there but it wasn’t overly steamy.

This had all the elements that make a great romance novel with a nice touch of Christmas Magic. I adored his family however I was hoping for a bit more Jingle the Dog. I understand he is what brings them together but he is sort of the background. However I still enjoyed this book immensely, really great read for the holidays or any day really 🙂

This book honestly started at a 3 star when I noticed the insta-love but as I kept reading I realized how much I really loved this book and the characters and by the time this was over it was a solid 4.5 for me
