    Fun read

    A wonderful sweet read that was completely entertaining. You can easily read this one without reading the first 3 in the series. The only time Allison Carmichael dislikes being single is the Christmas holidays. With the family all gathered all she hears about is how she needs to find that someone special. Well this year she has a plan. She needs to help raise funds for at a charity bachelor auction so she can raise funds and buy herself a fake boyfriend all at once. Luck has it that she wins Troy Matthews. A man who is all too willing to help convince her family that they are together. A fun read I highly recommend.

    Welcome Home for Christmas

    I like Annie's books. I haven't read a blah book yet. Annie always has a good story line for her readers. I will say it is an adult read. Check it out. Allison works with an orphan program. It is Christmas time and now she works on an auction of men for money for the kids and the Marine wives on the base to get help that they can't do until their husbands come back from deployment. Allison needs a date for her mother's Christmas Party. Spoiler. Troy is a K-9 Military Police on base. He and his brother David fight if they get together. Spoiler. Allison's mom is a psychologist and tells Allison her men are not for her. Now she found Troy. He is single and wants to stay that way until he falls for Allison. I fell for this story. It goes right to your heart. I hope you choose to read this story. You really need to find the ending. Enjoy this book! I volunteer to read and review this book.

    Great addition to the series

    Like with Welcoming the Bad Boy, this one seemed a little easier read (more traditional contemporary romance). While it does have a lot of heart and a lovely story about two people meeting and falling in love, the first couple of stories of the series seemed to have more angst to them. Mind you I'm not complaining, some times you need that and sometimes you don't :) But the upside is that Rains doesn't lose her deft touch at writing involved stories just because she leaves out some of the soul-searching and drama. She still gives readers fully developed and wonderfully crafted characters. The narrative is engrossing and I found myself reading it in about a day because it was so easy to get into and so hard to put down. Allison needs a pretend boyfriend because she's got one of those loving families that likes to get a little too involved in her life. Her mom is on her about settling down but when she brings a beau over then her mom's psychologist skills come out and she tells Allison exactly what's wrong with him ... darned if you do, darned if you don't, right? The family is very loving but you can totally understand how Allison finds herself in this situation. Recently burned, though, she's not in the market for a real boyfriend, which is where Troy comes in. Troy doesn't have anything against love or relationships, he just not looking for either right now. But he's sure not going to ignore the intense attraction between him and Allison. I love that there isn't anything really wrong with Troy - he's just a happy-go-lucky guy who hasn't yet found a woman he wants to get serious with. He's sweet, kind, sexy, hard-working, caring, blah blah blah, ya know just perfect. The slow build between the two as Allison resists her attraction to Troy and he enjoys flirting with her just to see her react is fantastically entertaining. They dance around the issue with humor and fun but you know that they are totally getting together. There are some serious moments - the interactions with their families (Troy has his own troubles at home), orphans without toys, and a burglar stealing from people in Allison's neighborhood - but it all works together very nicely with the playfulness, heat and charm of them falling in love. *** I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else’s. ***

    4,5****

    Welcome Home for Christmas was a heartwarming, sweet, fun, and well-written story with just enough turmoil to balance all the Christmas cheer. It has a dangerous mystery to solve to give it some spice, it has Christmas family drama like most of us have, it has goodwill and helping hands to spread the love to those in need, but mostly it has steaming hot romance, flirting, amorous play, and romantic moments that melts your heart. Troy is so easy to love, he is fun-loving, flirting, and a protective hunk who is sweet and kind to children. What's not to love,right?! Allison is a sweet lady with heart of gold. Because of her mom, she is little too focused on the negative aspects of people's personality, not trusting her instincts when it comes to men. The character development in this story was logical, real and tangible. I love how the author did it, so well immersed it into the tale, yet so obvious you couldn't miss it. Both leading characters have 'flaws' that they have to work on to make the relationship function, but they are willing to step up and make it happen. One of the social aspects of the story was the children's home and the kids desire and need for forever homes. So fitting to be delivering the review on the World Adoption day, as my heart went out for the little ones having such a desire for someone to love them. The other social matter, taking care of our veterans, is as important and it also happens to be the veteran's day in the States. I love the author's voice, her way of delivering the tale makes it so enjoyable that the time flies by while you read and you are reluctant to leave the world she created. Allison and Troy stole my heart with the inspiring, fervent, and wistful tale with so much love and passion, not only in between themselves but also for taking care of those in need, the perfect Christmas story message indeed. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

    An emotional trip for me but worth it.

    I read this in one sitting and enjoyed it immensely. My heart became engaged at the beginning and never gave up. There were smiles and tears. Allison had locked herself up believing she was fine on her own. Troy was too restless to settle down. From the moment they met, they brought out the best in each other, and I loved that. I highly recommend this story, and I look forward to reading more in this series. I received a copy through Netgalley and this is my unsolicited review, my opinion.
