Katiebabs is a self-proclaimed present day bluestocking with her head always in a book. She runs her own book blog called Babbling about Books and More!
This latest addition to the series has a very different tone than the other Love and Football books. Holding Holly is beyond sweet, almost saccharine in it's telling. It reads more like a PG rated young adult, but gives you the warm feels. Derrick is too adorable for words. He's very lovable, respectful and has a nice wit to him. He's very Prince Charming like, especially the way he treats Holly. He's a total gentleman. These two share nothing more than a few kisses.
The spirit of giving and caring is alive and well in this holiday novella. It has a fairy tale quality to it, especially with the ending. Fans who are looking for interracial romance romance will enjoy this one, although that doesn't really factor here where Derrick and Holly are concerned. Just a good old fashioned romance that makes you want to wrap yourself up in blanket and sip hot chocolate in front of the fire place.
Fans of Debbie Macomber, including those who like small town romance will want to check this out.
