Cassandra Baines almost has it all: a flourishing career as one of the youngest English Lit assistant professors at NYU, an apartment in a city she adores, and a close circle of lifelong girlfriends that are like sisters. The only thing she doesn’t have is someone special to share it with. She’s been married to her work since Sean McKinnon broke her heart seven years ago. 
Musician and bar owner Sean McKinnon keeps busy – too busy for a love life. He blew it with Cassie all those years ago, and no one has held a candle to her since. 
But then one fateful night, of all the people in New York City, Cassandra walks into his bar, and he’s drawn to her as strongly as ever. She wants nothing to do with him, but he’s not going to give up so easily. 
Can a bit of New York Christmas magic help two people take a second chance on true love? 

Another Christmas read courtesy of netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Similar cover to the first book in this series but this one is a little better than the first as it looks more like it about the romance like it's supposed to.

I started off really enjoying this book but the further I went into it the more it started to annoy me. I did also get a little confused as it would change whose point of view it was written in but once I got used to that I started to cotten on to what was going on. What I find a little strange is that this is number two in a series yet it is written by a different author (which is the same for the rest of the series) and you can tell. The romance side of the story was a little annoying at times as they would make the same mistakes and then they would say they have learnt from past mistakes when clearly they hadn't. There was a few cute moments that I come to expect from my Christmas novels. The ending felt a little rushed and like the first book I would have liked to have seen into the future to see if these two are even still together.

I kind of like the characters in this book but not as much as the first book. There was one character that I really liked and that was Sean who was Irish and adorable! Cassandra annoyed me a lot especially near the end which then I could have thrown my kindle as she was being a hypocrite.

Overall not as good as the first one but still an enjoyable read for this time of year.
