Chasing Christmas Eve 

Chasing Christmas Eve (Heartbreaker Bay #4) by Jill Shalvis 


Meet cute...

Run for the hills—temporarily. That's Colbie Albright's plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie's so over it that she's under it. She's also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she's pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won't be a stranger for long.

Make merry...

Spence's commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn't have to worry about the powerful—okay, crazy hot chemistry—he's got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself... just because she's gorgeous and a great listener just because she gets Spence immediately doesn't mean he won't be able to let Colbie go. Does it?

and hope for a miracle.

Now the clock's ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime.


5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this! Chasing Christmas Eve was incredibly funny (seriously a hilarious start!) but it was also sweet and flirty with the perfect mix of emotion blended in. Spence and Colbie were wonderful, real characters. Watching them come together completely melted my heart and left a huge smile on my face.

Spence and Colbie meeting for the first time was so entertaining. I loved their sweet flirting and getting to know one another. They could be so playful together and I loved their banter. Spence was so incredibly sweet and loving. I loved getting to see the man behind the brain. I totally got Colbie and liked her instantly. These two coming together was a joy to watch. I really enjoyed them opening up and sharing, it totally melted me.

Awesome cast of characters. There is this great group of friends that have made their own family and I love their connection. I like all the couples and seeing their closeness and also their protectiveness of Spence. They just helped to create a really well rounded story. Just to add, there’s a moment in this story where my mind was completely blown. One of those I did not see THAT coming type of things and I absolutely LOVED it!!!

This story was so fantastic. These real people finding there way together and falling in love. It was so sweet, caring, and extremely entertaining… and there’s a pretty good amount of sexiness mixed in too. I loved all the details and I thought Spence and Colbie had excellent character development. I love what they were both going through in their lives and how them coming together effected that. There's a lot of emotion and it's light in the drama department but it had the perfect amount of everything I love in a great story.

This book just made me so incredibly happy! Jill Shalvis is an amazing, engaging writer who creates exceptional characters and I feel like I'm a part of their world. This was an excellent story!
