"Ring in the Holidays" by Katie Lane
"THE BEST NEW YEAR'S EVE . . . EVER
Psychologist Ellie Simpson is about to get a healthy dose of sex therapy. Leaving her cheating boyfriend behind, she has everything she needs for a quick rebound: Vegas, plenty of champagne, and a proposition from the sexiest man she's ever seen. As her handsome stranger helps her ring in the New Year-over and over again-Ellie finds herself blissfully losing all of her inhibitions.
Attorney Matthew McPherson is good at making women lose things, like their minds and underwear. With his athletic build and soulful eyes, he doesn't need to use his powers of persuasion or famous last name to get a woman into bed. But when morning comes, Matthew finds Ellie is the only woman he can't bear to leave-ever. It's enough to make him wonder if what happens in Vegas really has to stay there."
Why I Read This Book:
I liked the book cover
What I like about this novel:
It was a good entertaining holiday read that will keep your attention from the start to finish. This author really knows how to give the reader a interesting romance. Who knew when this heroine (Elle) would meet up with this hero (Matthew) in Vegas and it seemed to be the right time for each of these two. Why was that? It seems like Ellie was at her lowest point when her life wasn't going the way she thought it should go especially after her boyfriend had dropped her. Now, she had a night with a hot man in Vegas thinking that what happens in Vegas stays...well this wasn't what happened. It was after Ellie's book tour was over when she and her best friend Sidney decides to move to the same city that this guy she had met in Vegas lived. But what chance would they ever meet? Well from her book that this heroine Dr. Ellie Simpson has written....'Virginal Love: Separating Lust from True Emotions' who would have thought this would bring the hero Matthew McPherson and his family altogether in a really emotional dramatic romantic read. This author really worked her magic with the characters in her story as you will see that they are all richly developed where each one comes alive on the pages along being so well developed, engaging, depicted, memorable, well portrayed and most of all giving the reader a believable good read.
What I Also Like:
The humor that this author brings out in this read from the character Louis McPherson Douglas...known as Wheezie was really amazing! I will say this one character had me laughing so hard in several interesting scenes.
Be ready for the interesting read from "Ring in the Holiday" where you just may find... that from their meeting of the two in Vegas ...then on to Chicago...meeting the hero again...the crazy friend with some ideas for a new novel...seeing Matthew and meeting his family... and that interesting aunt with a agenda of her own....Ellie's mom's visit finally facing her problem head on and on to the end that will answer the question. Again, you will have to pick up "Ring in the Holiday" to see if Ellie and Matthew will have a future together.
My overall impression:
This was a good humorous heartwarming romance that would be a perfect holiday read that I would definitely recommend to you.
