Not only with this book get you in the mood for Christmas, it will also get you in the mood for rekindling an old romance. This is a great book by Lili Valente. Full of humor, the laugh out loud kind, as well as the heat between these two great characters. Macy and Dean's story began when they were just teenagers. True love that was not only sweet and innocent but the kind you knew would last a lifetime, that is until life snuck up and bit Macy right on the behind. She vows to never forgive Dean for the way he betrayed her trust and to never return to the sleepy little Colorado town she grew up in. Things happen that aren't quite like we plan them but such is life. Dean goes on with life and has a successful business in Lover's Leap Colorado as well as for the most part he is happy. He is performing right before the holidays to help get his mother out of debt so she can retire so as he is driving in his attire for his second job he has no idea what is about to unfold. Surprise, the love of his life is back in Lover's Leap and not only is she back but she is in danger. This is the best book. I loved everything about it. There is sweetness, a few tears, laugh out loud funny throughout and burn you up hotness as these two find each other again. The question is can they keep what they had once upon a time or has life created too many obstacles. I received an early copy to read and review and give my honest opinion. I loved this book and highly recommend it. It is well written and I enjoyed it from beginning to end.

A Naughty Little Christmas is Lili’s next sexy, sweet, and funny novella. I have read every book by Lili and some of my faves are her quickies! She has a way of writing someone short that packs in a lot of story. It's been ten years since Macy was in her hometown of Lover’s Leap. She is only back to pick up her late father's belongings and headed right back to sunny L.A. That was the plan anyway. What she didn't expect was to be stuck in the snow with her first love. The one who betrayed her all those years ago. She wanted to hate him. She really did. But he was also her best friend. The Only One that really knew her but is that enough to forgive him? And why the hell is he wearing a Santa suit? Dean has never forgotten his first and only love. Macy was his everything and seeing her now was like coming home. He could feel her coldness towards him and it was worse than the frozen ice on the pond. He wanted nothing more than to make it melt away. It felt like there wasn't any time between them while they talked. And the heat was there more than ever. He wanted her more than ever. Could this night be the beginning of a second chance or a forever goodbye? I loved these two! Their story is unique, sexy, and so much fun with a twist of emotional. I do need to say that I did read the original story when it was called Snow Place Like Home By Jessie Evans. I loved it then but with the added scenes and re-writes I fell even harder! There is some added sexiness, laughs, and twists! Overall...it’s a unique story full of heat, humor, emotion, and snow. Lots and lots of snow and kisses. Quotes: One look into those blue eyes and all the old feelings come rushing back, making me think I haven’t put as many things in the past as I’ve assumed. “Don’t look directly at the a- for too long, angel. Its awesomeness has been known to induce temporary blindness.” “Come here, woman. And I’ll prove I’m a man who keeps his word.”
Adhering to the notion that you absolutely cannot go home again, and feeling more than a little bit Scroogey, Macy Clayton is back in Lover's Leap, Colorado, under extreme duress. After all, despite her hometown's name, Macy has no love at all for the place, or a certain someone that she thought she could trust. 'Tis the season? Not as far as Macy is concerned. She can't wait to shake the snow off her boots ASAP and beat it back to LaLa land, but if Dean Roberts has anything to say about it, she'll decide that she's back to stay. It may only be October, but I am happy to say that the official countdown to the holidays has begun, at least in the romance world. Visions of sugarplums, mistletoe aplenty, and snowflakes galore, if it's Christmas, we're starting to see it. All of this is already enough to make me a very happy reader, but when you add Lili Valente and a second chance at love against all odds, well, I'm in holiday book heaven. Lili has worked her usual romantic magic in A NAUGHTY LITTLE CHRISTMAS, weaving a story of crossed signals, love lost, and love rediscovered, with plenty of heart, heat, and humor, and given readers a truly delightful read that is not to be missed. Make sure that this book is on your 'have to read list,' and enjoy.
