Paul Savage loves his job playing Santa at the Briscoe Ranch Resort where he’s normally a back country guide. What Paul never expected though while he was entertaining the children and handing out candy canes was for Kelly Walker to walk back into his life at that moment and what an entrance it was when her suitcase full of naughty toys is spilled right there in front of everyone.
Kelly’s life has become a complete mess so when she came across the job as holiday photographer with the perk of being near Paul she can’t resist. Kelly had always wondered what if things had been different back then but she finds herself a bit flustered from this sexy cowboy who had certainly changed from that scrawny boy she remembers.
If Santa Were a Cowboy would have been a completely fun and wonderful read if for one small little detail that I just couldn’t overlook. Kelly spent the entire story hiding the truth about herself from Paul out of embarrassment so really what kind of start to a relationship is that?
If overlooking the lies in the story this is a rather cute read about going back to a lost chance at love. There are funny moments all throughout and some cute flashing back to the past and trying to change what had happened. I’m not sure why the MC felt the need to lie but if that had been written out I’d definitely would have been completely recommending this book.
Overall, wasn’t happy with the entire story but still an OK holiday romance.
