But after the accident she decided she wanted to learn how to trust again and let people in her life especially Stevie and Felix if they will have her. Felix’s and Regan’s friendship grows into something hot quickly.
I loved this story and plot not your usual Christmas story but it shows the urge to feel and connect with people even after a horrendous past. It was an awesome but a little bit different read as no one should go through what Regan did in her teens. But Felix is there to help her. This story seems realistic like it could happen. I loved the characters even if Regan seemed hard to love at times but after all she went through and cut herself off couldn’t really blame her for the way she was. Loved Felix everyone should have a Felix in their life. Anyway I highly recommend,
I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
