I begin my review in this spunky, spirited tone because that's the overall tone of this book. Like all good Christmas stories, SLEEPING WITH SANTA is heart-warming and tender, with just the right dash of sex thrown in to season the pot. But don't mistake the brisk pace for frivolity. These characters are real and credible, three-dimensional and sympathetic - NOT the cookie-cutter cardboard stereotypes you might expect to encounter in formulaic seasonal romance. In point of fact, this story isn't just for the holidays. It's a fun year-round read. A good story is a good story, period. And this is a very good story indeed, tightly crafted and expertly told.
In the beginning, one wonders why Lily steadfastly rebuffs Nick, especially for no reason more solid than the ostensibly irrelevant fact that he happens to be a fireman. But as one digs deeper into the meat of the tale, Ms. Druzy deftly reveals the deeper reasons for her heroine's uptight behavior, and we begin to tap down to the troubling root of her near-phobic avoidance of this utterly charming and seemingly ideal man. Will Lily allow herself to experience the love right in front of her, ripe for the taking? Will she cast aside her prescribed rules and open her heart to her HEA? Will she let Nick in? Even though he, like all flesh-and-blood men, is far from a saint, he's a keeper, the gift that will keep on giving, year after year, well into wedded old age ... But first Lily must let down her defenses and allow herself to embrace the love she deserves.
No review of this work would be complete without observing that Debra Druzy's style is impressively mature for a debut author. The text is professionally written and neatly packaged from cover to cover. Delightful, spontaneous, and taut of plot, SLEEPING WITH SANTA is a must-read romance suitable for all seasons. I await the author's next work with great anticipation! Five stars all around for Debra Druzy!
Lily and Nick’s romance is both steamy and sweet, and I loved the backdrop of Christmas and the cozy setting of Scenic View where the story takes place. There are a sprinkling of other characters I’d love to see more of in this author’s future works. Can’t wait for her next book!
I read most of Sleeping With Santa during a weekend at the beach, and it was a perfect beach and poolside treat. Whatever time of year, I think you’ll enjoy Sleeping With Santa yourself! ;)
Any girl could fall for Nick despite his shortcomings.....not only could I completely picture his sexy features, but by the end of the story I wanted to sleep with him and have his babies!
Very well written and exciting...can't wait for a follow-up or a spin-off!
I was given a copy of this story in return for an honest review.
Love the chemistry between Nick and Lily.
No doubt I'll be rereading Sleeping with Santa to escape the Christmas chaos with the family.
Sweeten your September with Santa ;-)
