Holiday Do Us Part is a new holiday novella from J.D. Hollyfield, and it's a second-chance, forced proximity romance. After a string of failed attempts at online dating, Callie Baker decides she's done. Her best friends, however, think she simply needs a timeout and get away to decompress and hopefully get the old Callie back. So, they decide to book her a weekend away at a remote cabin, which turns out to be the terrible idea Callie knew it was because of the snowstorm she finds herself in. To make matters worse, the cabin is actually occupied--by none other than Easton Cruz. Her ex, the guy she considered "the one" until he became "the one who broke her heart". Two years later, she's stuck in a secluded cabin with nowhere to go with the guy she hates--except she still loves him, too.
With the holidays less than two months away, I have a hankering for holiday romances. J.D. Hollyfield's new novella fits the bill quite nicely. Once in a while, in very special circumstances having meddlesome friends isn't such a bad thing, especially when they have your best interests in mind. Callie and Easton clearly still loved each other, and they needed to clear the air as to what happened two years prior. I appreciated the humor along with the romance, making Holiday Do Us Part a really enjoyable, four-starred read.
