Book Description

After a year that involved a box office flop and a spectacular break-up, actor Jackson Wyatt returns home to fulfill a promise to his sister to act in a play at her community theater. What he didn’t count on was his sister casting his ex-girlfriend as the female lead opposite him. Returning to his roots has Jack taking a hard look at his life, and he finds himself wanting the things he gave up so many years ago.

Natasha can’t believe she agreed to play opposite her ex in the play ‘The Gift of the Magi’ at her best friend’s theatre. But she feels a certain kinship to the main character, Della, and it’s not just her long hair. As if facing a Christmas where she barely has the money to make ends meet, let alone buy presents for those she loves wasn’t hard enough, now she’s having to deal with Jack’s reappearance in her life.

Through Natasha, Jack sees a side of life he’s missed out on. With love as her currency she gives more to others than he ever could with all his money. But would she be willing to give him a second chance at love?

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice story to read on a snowy afternoon! September 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A short but sweet story about second chances at love. I enjoyed the quick glimpses of Christian giving sprinkled throughout the story. It gave me a chance to think about the ways I can give this Christmas.
My favorite section was the conversation Jack's mother had with Jack about the choices he made in the past. I think I will have to remember those words for my own children someday! There are some grammatical errors but overall a very nice story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Little Love Story! September 27, 2013
By Kim
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this story. The giving of yourself at Christmas time was shown throughout the book. The Santa and Elf part touched my heart. Natasha's viewpoint on that scene was so thought and heart provoking. I enjoyed watching Jack realize what was important in life even though he has a life and career in Hollywood.
Natasha has a lot of responsibilities and gives of herself in ways that not many people will do in this day and time that we live in.Jack and Natasha have both matured in the years since they had been apart. They overcome their hurt to find a deeper love.
This was just the right length and just the right story to prepare you for the Christmas season!
A clean read for any age! Well done, Mrs. Jordan!

I was given a copy of this book for my honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very well written October 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thus story so complements "the gift of the Magi" with tying the true gift of love into a modern day love story. It easily held my attention to the very end. Great use of the true meaning of Cristmas

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Seasonal Second-Chance Romance September 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
After a year full with a box office flop and a very public break-up from his glamorous girlfriend, Hollywood heartthrob Jackson Wyatt is returning home to Fargo, North Dakota for Christmas with his family. His sister Mel, director of a community theatre, has persuaded him to take the male lead in a short play while he's at home, although so far she hasn't told him who his female co-star will be.

Natasha Curran has also had a difficult year. Her father suffered a heart attack and is still not in good health. Natasha, who teaches drama and music at a local school, is trying to help her parents out financially as much as possible and is struggling to make ends meet. Her best friend Mel has asked her to appear in a short play opposite Mel's brother Jack. It's eight years since Jack went to Hollywood leaving his 20-year-old girlfriend Natasha with a broken heart.

In this sweet seasonal read Kimberly Rae Jordan brings us a tale using the much-loved romance novel device of a second chance at love. As high school sweethearts, Jack and Natasha had thought that they'd be together forever. When Jack left to seek his fame and fortune in Hollywood however, neither of them had the emotional maturity for a long distance relationship. Jack was seduced by his dream and Natasha was left nursing a broken heart.

I found the book a little slow to start with but was hooked as the story began to unfold. In fact, in a world where there seem to be so many books out there about explosive romances with billionaires, it was nice to read a gentle, slow-paced story where people do ordinary things like shop in Walmart and eat in McDonalds (even if one them is a Hollywood movie star!). I'm not saying that nothing happens in this story as there are plenty of beautiful, poignant and romantic moments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Christmas Story September 28, 2013
By Clein
Format:Kindle Edition
Set against the backdrop of O. Henry's Gift of the Magi, this story follows Tasha and Jack as they realize what is important in life. They had been high school sweethearts, but Jack felt the pull of Hollywood and left Tasha behind. 8 years later they have to work together in the play. I liked how forgiveness over past hurts was dealt with in this book. This book is a short and sweet book perfect for Christmas reading. Because of the length of the book, only the characters of Jack and Tasha are developed to any extent. However, they are enough reason to enjoy this book. The setting of Fargo North Dakota makes a perfectly chilly Christmas setting.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
