A Home For Christmas by Ann Vaughn

Ann Vaughn has quickly become one of my favorite authors-EVER! There's romance, hot service men, Channing Tatum!-just kidding, no Channing Tatum. He has nothing on her alpha men, especially Riley! He just melts your heart! I guess technically I have a thing for service men since my fiancee is a firefighter-maybe Ann should write an awesome story about us! I'm on a roll here, I know! Literally, I just love Riley! This is not just a Christmas story, rest assured. I will be selecting this book for my bookclub when the time comes-and my month isn't December. Just, wow. Loved this. Give yourself a present and check this book out! It is only 99 pennies! How can you resist! This picture of Channing Tatum reminds me of the initial description we get of Riley. OH! And wait until you read the part about Jenna's hot chocolate! It totally reminds me of Ned Flander's in The Simpson's Movie! :) 

Here are some of my favorite quotes-this was hard because the whole book is my favorite quote!!!!!

  • “One guy ran down three teenagers?” Jenna asked, surprised. “From what I understand, this guy is a former Navy SEAL…and he’s recently out, so he’s still in prime shape..."  (I like where this is going hehehhe)
  • “Well, at least give us your address,” the first lady insisted, “I’d like to bring you a casserole for your troubles.” (smart woman!)
  • He winked at her. “I got connections, sweetheart. You want it?” (hehehe too bad he was talking about playstation ahh!)
  • “Would you? My ladder isn’t quite tall enough.” (hhehhehhheheh)
  • "Well, if it isn't Malibu Ken," Colt Harris' amused voice answered.
  • He stopped her by pulling her to him and kissing the ever-living daylights out of her.
  • “You’d be surprised what I would do for you, Jenna,” he said, surprising himself with the admission. (KILL ME NOW! )
  • “I believe this activity requires a bit more of your, shall we say, arduous participation.”
  • "I'm dreaming tonight, of a place I love, even more than I usually do. And although I know, it's a long road back, I promise you...I'll be Home for Christmas... ahhh!
  • Cam looked up at Riley with a shy smile. "I always get her something that represents an event that took place sometime during the year. I thought she'd like to have you represented on our tree."
  • He looked up from his game. "Uh oh. Full name usage. Serious talk ensues," he said, making Riley chuckle and Jenna roll her eyes.

  • 5 stars-or Christmas ornaments! :) 

    Dear Ann, 

    Thank you for writing such amazing stories! Could you melt my heart any more with Riley? Really. I was in tears in many places throughout this book! My heart was melted butter for 2 days! I can't even think of a flaw with Riley!
