Holly is a sweet, smart girl who life dealt a bad hand so she could not go to college but now is working extra jobs to ensure she gets out of Hilldale. She feels like an outsider in spite of having lived there all her life but meeting Nick changes all that.
Nick is the quintessential hero and all-star boy of the town who is back for a bit of a break and rest. They meet and spark fly, that Holly already has a crush on him makes it all sweeter. I liked the way the two of them met and the surprise element.
It is a sweet, sexy love story with a good dose of Christmas magic. When Nick turned on his charm Holly really did not have a chance. It has a fun side as well, I was in splits while reading about the restaurant and its gourmet food. The story is fast paced, full of bit size pieces of surprise along the way. Amy has woven the elements of a beautiful Christmas along with love and a feeling of togetherness as she managed to make the town a part of their love story by supporting Nick as he wooed Holly.
A straight forward, cute romance that I enjoyed and finished in a jiffy. Christmas Blitz is an ideal book for a quick refreshing read.
Nick could afford it. High School Football Star became pro ball star and he was back. After meeting Holly, a house wasn't all he wanted. It might have started out because she was the only woman who told him no. That wasn't all, she was real and he didn't give up.
Holly wasn't playing hard to get, she was protecting herself. They would both be going in different directions. She'd had enough pain, and she had goals.
Can Nick prove he isn't just his money? Will Holly take a chance at risking more of life? This is a touching, light romance set in the Christmas Season. Maybe Santa will bring them both presents they didn't even know they wanted.

An almost opposites attract kind of love story - Holly is a small town girl struggling to make ends meet... and Nick was her high school crush - the untouchable high school football player. They both want different things at the time this book takes off... and it's so fun to watch them come together and realize what true love and Christmas can be all about.
I could totally see this movie on the Hallmark channel - it gave me all the feels!
Holly Clifford is a slightly down on her luck, stuck in a small town realtor who dreams of moving away and finally getting her college degree. Nick Shaw is the town’s golden boy, a successful pro football player, in town for the holidays.
This story started out cute and with potential for a feel-good holiday read. Nick seemed like a great catch and a perfect guy. Told via Holly’s first person POV, Nick was possibly a little too perfect, to the point of feeling a little flat since the reader never has the opportunity to get inside his head. Meanwhile, there’s a lot of push and pull in this novella. To the point that Holly was starting to get on my nerves. And then Nick handles a situation poorly and, well, I started thinking Holly might be right about them. Or at the very least, Nick really needed to man up and fix his big faux pas.
I closed the story feeling like important issues were still unresolved, not to mention that Nick didn’t really ever seem to get to know the Holly the reader does. The ending is very abrupt, and it’s definitely a HFN instead of a HEA. Honestly, it’s more like a ‘Happy in the Moment’ ending considering how much Holly changed her mind throughout the story.
Overall, 3 Stars for the premise; 2 stars for the ending. And as for the holiday naughtiness factor…well aside from one scene, it’s was rather lacking.
