Last Chance Christmas ~ Joanne Rock

Today's 12 Days of Christmas Romance is Last Chance Christmas by Joanne Rock! If you love a hunky hockey player with a soft heart, you'll want to read on for this one! This book is free at the time of this posting.

Fashion buyer Shea Walker had a fast track lifestyle until a car accident sidelines her to a painful recovery. Seeking quiet for the holidays, Shea returns to the snowy mountains where she grew up to make peace with her past and spend time with her estranged family. She never expected old flame J.C. Royce—now a hockey star—would return to their hometown, too. 

After weathering a tough year, J.C. sees Shea's arrival in Cloud Spin, Vermont, as a holiday miracle after the way he broke things off with her long ago. JC hopes that Shea will give him another chance to explore the chemistry still simmering between them. When two hearts with a history have a chance to reconnect at Christmas, will love get one last shot?

When Shea heads back to Cloud Spin, Vermont (I have to admit the name of the town did annoy me for some reason!) for Christmas after an unexpected accident leaves her sidelined, she expects to find her parents at home celebrating Christmas. When she arrives, the house is dark and her parents are gone, leaving her face-to-face with her old high school flame, who is now a professional NHL player. Determined to take the advice of a podcast and right old wrongs, she figures she will have to start with J.C. since her parents are out of town. 

The chemistry between Shea and J.C. is obvious from the first time they open their mouths, and the way J.C. still cares for her is obvious, even if Shea doesn't want to admit it and get her heart broken by him, again. There was plenty of sexytime, fun times, family time, and time to reevaluate their lives as they rediscovered their old feelings.

Hockey, hot cocoa, hot men, and cold nights come together to make this the perfect Christmas read. It reminds us all that families fight, families disappoint each other, and sometimes things aren't always what they seem to be. I read Last Chance Christmas in a few hours making it the perfect romance for a cold night, a blanket, a fire, and a cup of cocoa.

I give Last Chance Christmas 5 cups of Holy Hockey Hotness!
