Review: If I Return (The 12 NA's of Christmas) by Sawyer Bennett

If I Return is proud to be a part of The 12 NA's of Christmas
12 New Adult Novellas. 12 Best Selling Authors. November 2013.

Would you wait?

College student, Hope Camden, is relentlessly serious, awkwardly shy and in complete need of taking a walk on the wilder side. At least, that’s what her sister tells her when she drags her off for an impromptu Christmas getaway in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Hope’s plans to keep her nose in a book the entire vacation are thwarted when she meets Jack Freeman, the gorgeous and enigmatic Army helicopter pilot staying at the same resort. What was supposed to be a quiet Christmas holiday turns into a life changing event for Hope and Jack. The only problem? Jack is headed off to war, and there is no guarantee he will come back.

Kristine's Thoughts:

As usual I always find it hard to put my thoughts into words when it comes to a novella. At only 83 pages in length I don't want to give anything away. This novella although not lengthy reads like a full length book. The plot and characters are well developed and the story does not feel rushed. I am a sucker for any Christmasy type books and this one does not disappoint.

Ladies, we have another swoon worthy leading male in this book! Jack Freeman, an Army helicopter pilot, is about as sexy, hot and likeable as they come. The chemistry between Jack and Hope melts the pages. The bathroom/mirror scene is about as hot and erotic as it gets.

Although there is a lot of descriptive between the sheets scenes there is a very cute and heart warming story to go with it. I thoroughly enjoyed the way it was told in the present with Hope reminiscing back to when the two met and then returning to the present. Will Jack come back or won't he? Does Hope wait for him? You have to read it to find out.

With a wintery backdrop, a steamy romance and the Christmas season all at play you can't go wrong!
