Waiting for Snow (Sparks in Texas) by Mari Carr
She might be too big to sit on Santa’s lap, but Adele still has a couple of Christmas wishes. First, a night in Porter’s bed. The alpha cowboy is the king of one-night stands, so it shouldn’t be too much to ask. Follow it up with a White Christmas in Texas? She’ll have gotten everything she wants.
Porter doesn’t believe in asking for what he wants, but he’s got a couple of problems. He believes in riding it down and roping it up. If he gets Adele in his bed, he’s not planning to let her go. But there’s his reputation to overcome, and her stubbornness to boot. It might just take a holiday miracle to convince her to stay all year.
I’ve read many books by this author, but somehow skipped over this series! I’m not sure how that happened but after reading this book, I’m going to have to correct that oversight! I can, however, say that this story can be read completely as a stand alone! This isn’t a very long story, but rather a quick, sweet read that left me with a smile on my face and a warm feeling in my heart! Not many books leave me with an “awwe!” feeling at the end, but this one definitely did!
Addie is searching for her future. She knows what she wants. She wants it all. She wants her someone. She wants marriage, white picket fences, and babies. And she wants it in her hometown. She loves who she is, and where she lives. And she tries to find it. But her dating life is ……less than stellar. It’s definitely a case of not being able to have the one you want, and not wanting anyone you can have!
This book is fast paced, and sweet, but definitely has a level of heat you usually only obtain in longer stories. It was fun, and left me happy. It’s perfect reading for a cold winter’s afternoon, when you are snuggled up on the couch with hot cocoa!
