DESCRIPTION:
The award-winning author who writes with "humor and heart" (Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author) invites you to visit the charming small town of Angel Falls.

Being naughty was nice, but now these friends-turned-lovers are in for an unforgettable Christmas...

Just when Kaitlyn Barnes vows to get over her longtime crush on Rafe Langdon, they share a sizzling evening that delivers an epic holiday surprise: Kaitlyn is pregnant. And if that weren't life-changing enough, everyone assumes they're engaged -- a charade they must keep alive through the holiday season. But Kaitlyn knows Rafe better than anyone, and Rafe settling down is about as likely as Santa skipping Angel Falls this year...

Rafe would rather Kaitlyn believe a lie -- that their night together was a fling -- than face his own dangerous truth: he's falling for her, hard. After a devastating loss, Rafe swore he'd never risk his heart again. Yet the longer they pretend to be engaged the more Rafe starts to want the real thing. But now he has to convince Kaitlyn he wants to be by her side -- and their baby's -- for all the Christmases to come.

Includes the bonus novel Christmas on Mistletoe Lane by Annie Rains!


MY THOUGHTS:

Writing this review is a bit hard, because with All I Want for Christmas is You, author Miranda Liasson is bringing an end to the delightful Angel Falls series.


At their friends wedding weeks before, Kaitlyn Barnes became pregnant with Rafe Langdon's baby. Best friends for years, Kaitlyn has no idea how to deliver the news to Rafe. As much as Kaitlyn loves and respects Rafe, she knows that he is not willing to settle down, now or ever. Yet, this is a secret that she cannot keep for long. Not from Rafe, and not from her friends.


Meanwhile, Rafe cannot stop thinking of that night. Despite his protests of being far too drunk to remember, there is not one second he forgot. However, Rafe suffered a tragic loss years before and absolutely refuses to give more than a moment's thought to accept that he has strong feelings for Kaitlyn. When 
he does hear the news, he is determined to do the right thing. The question is whether or not the hole in his heart is too big to be mended.

I love the Angel Falls series, and appreciate the conflict and love how it was resolved. The story had a wonderful conclusion as did the series. I have already reviewed the previous two stories in the series and the links are below. 

Many thanks to Forever for this ARC for review in exchange for my honest opinion.

  1. Wonderful review Robin. I do find series end to be bittersweet. They tend to tie up loose ends and leave one almost mourning our parting from the characters that we have got to know.
