Review: Luke: A Scrooged Christmas by CP Smith

36656497

A short but sweet tale of Insta-love and faith.

If Luke Knight could change anything about his life, it would be the day his nephew died. Filled with guilt, Luke lived a lonely existence. Until the day an angel crashed into his truck… and struck his heart.

Anna Stubbs knew one thing without question: God has a reason for everything. Her optimism and faith shine from within, and no matter how hard Luke tries, he can’t ignore it.

When life throws an unexpected curveball, both Luke and Anna will need to reach deep inside themselves this holiday season, and learn to have faith that God is in control and duck slippers truly are a man’s undoing.

Rated R for language and sexual content.

MY REVIEW

Luke: A Scrooged Christmas by C.P. Smith
Luke and Anna
THIS WAS FANTASTIC
5 Stars

This is a novella and for those of you that don’t know what that is, it’s a short novel or long short story… and in CP Smith’s case, it’s an even quicker version of her “insta-love” kinda stories.

This is a holiday/Christmas setting and in the (kindle addition) 73 pages you’ll go from gloomy to joyful to alarmed to turned on to shit, who knows anymore!! God I love her stories!!

Anna is coming home for the first time since her parents passed and her brother Gregg is leaving on a trip with his band which leaves Anna home alone for Christmas. She’s not thrilled to say the least, but when a fender-bender happens and an unexpected malfunction with her furnace, things go from bad to holy fucking hot!!

Luke is a contractor by trade, but filling in for his friend’s heating and Air Conditioning Company while he’s away for the holidays, so when he gets a call about no heat on Christmas he’s not exactly overjoyed, but heads out non-the-less.

Eeeeek, this story is short, but packs a punch! I could not put it down. I was drawn to Luke and Anna immediately and their charm and keenness kept me turning pages like they were on fire. LOL, they just might have been. The storyline was exceptional and effortless to read. The pacing was perfect and the climax did the book justice. I loved it!

MY REVIEW

Wallflowers: Double Trouble by C.P. Smith
Sienna & Bo
I’VE NEVER GIGGLE SO MUCH
5 STARS

Seriously folks… this is a “Romantic Suspense,” so don’t get me wrong. It’s packed full of suspense, but equally packed with humor…. Lots and lots of humor. How can you not laugh at these Wallflowers? They do and say some of the funniest shit that I couldn’t help but laugh out loud… even on the treadmill at the gym.. I got some funny looks, but kept on laughing!

Sienna is just like the rest of them. Headstrong, heartstrong, and has a will of steel. At times I wanted to high five her and join in the festivities and other times I was like, girl you betta not! She reminds me of someone I know!! (wink wink). I guess the best part of this book for me was the crazy antics the girls found themselves into. I want to BE a Wallflower!!

Bo is all kinds of crazy… but I guess you have to be to take on a Wallflower. He starts out kind of set in his ways, but before long he’s finding himself caving to the predicaments Sienna and the girls get themselves into. Poor guy! He does have back up, but in my opinion, no amount of back up is enough to handle Sienna, Poppy, and Cali! LOL!

I loved all the supporting character cast. I like to see the past and future main characters mingling with the current ones. CP always finds a way to bring everyone back so that we can get a glimpse into what’s happening with their lives or (wink wink) what is sure to happen in an upcoming book!

This story is gripping, hilarious, and sensual. I found it flowed very nicely and the storyline was captivating. The characters are commanding and the tension immense. It’s not a dark read, but definitely not light either. I loved the ending even though it hooked me for the next book… I’ll be thinking about a biker dude for a while now!

Wallflowers: Three of a Kind by C.P. Smith
Devin & Calla
WORTH LYIN’, STEALIN’, OR KILLIN’ FOR
5 Stars because 10 is not available

Oh. My. God. This book is amazing! A whole hearted “feel good” kind of book. I love the connection these three girls have. Calla, Poppy, and Sienna are the perfect combination of goofiness, hilarity, and love. When I set out on this journey I knew I’d be reading something a little different than my normal “romance novels” and holy freaking hell… this one pulled every emotion out of me over and over again. I am in love with these women. I need to find my fellow Wallflowers and form my own posse!

Calla Armstrong is such a refreshing character. She’s innocent, but still wise to the world and its craziness. I love the fact that she grew up in a fairly ordinary life despite being raised by her fancy free Aunts. Those crazy Aunts of hers kept her grounded and focused on what was truly important.. Family! Regardless of what they taught her, she still thinks that if she keeps her walls erected and people are at arm’s length, then she’ll never get hurt again. Oh boy does she have a rude awakening!

Devin Hawthorne is this uber hot and very sexy private detective who happens to move next-door to Calla. Wowza! The way CP writes her alphas is impeccable. I was instantaneously attracted to Devin. The way he grunts when he’s working out, the sound of his gravely voice and that huge 6’3” frame of his… Auoy Vey. SOLD! He’s moved to town to start his own PI Company and his friend already has a case for him.

The supporting character cast is pretty big in this one, but I’ll only mention a few… Poppy and Sienna are co-workers of Calla’s and seem to hit it off right away. They’re witty, loving, and fearless. I fear they are both suffering from some sort of heartbreak or heartache, but we’ll find out eventually as these are our other “Wallflowers” and will eventually get a book of their own.

Devin’s friends are pretty rock solid! Nate is his BF from College and owns the bar, Jacobs’ Ladder down the street. Good guy, but I think he’s going to be a hard nut to crack. Next up is Bo, a local Police Officer working with Devin on the current case. I love that he already has eyes for one of the Wallflowers (wink)!

Two people that MUST be mentioned are Calla’s Aunties, Bernice and Eunice. These women were shunned by their Father, but made a beautiful life for themselves and Calla. They run the “Frock You” upscale resale shop and are always around to hand out advice even if it’s not wanted! They are hysterical, entertaining, and good-hearted. Everyone needs Aunts like this in their life!

To sum this one up, Wallflowers can be put into so many categories. Romance, Suspense, Comedy, Contemporary, Action, and Erotica. Like I said before… So many feels… and those plot twist, eek! Once I started reading it I could not put it down. The characters are commanding and alluring. My life became consumed with their every move. The dialogue flows smoothly and feels very natural like a conversation you might have yourself. The tension starts instantly and continues throughout the entire tale. I loved it with my entire heart and can’t wait to see what else CP has in store for all these beautiful women!
