"Uplifting, sexy and warm, Sarah Morgan's O'Neil Brothers series is perfection."—Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author 
This winter, ex-skiing champion, reformed heartbreaker and single dad Tyler O'Neil has only one mission—making sure his daughter, Jess, has the best Christmas ever. The fact that his best friend, Brenna, is also temporarily moving into his chalet at the overbooked Snow Crystal resort is a delicious distraction he's simply going to have to ignore. Theirs is the one relationship he's never ruined, and he's not about to start now. 
Ski pro Brenna Daniels knows all about the perils of unrequited love—she's been in love with Tyler for years. But living with him is absolute torture…how can she concentrate on being his friend when he's sleeping in the room next door? Then when Tyler kisses Brenna, suddenly the relationship she's always dreamed of feels so close she could almost touch it. Could this be the Christmas her dreams of a happy-ever-after finally come true?

Last year I started my very first Sarah Morgan novel which was the first one in the O'Neil Brothers series which I loved so much I just had to continue with the series and I am so glad I did as this book was maybe even better than the first two...

A cute cover that is very much in keeping with the season it was set in.

I was always looking forward to Tyler's book as every time he was in the previous books I wanted more of him and he didn't disappoint. This book was amazingly written that I didn't want to put it down as I felt so involved with the story. I have come to realise that Christmas books are heart warming and this one was no different although there was a few moments when my heart broke a little bit but not enough to put me off. The relationship between Tyler and Brenna was great as well of them being great friends there was also the spark that neither of them saw it for what it was. As well as this book being about relationships it also tackled other issues including bullying which was done in a sensitive manner. The ending was beautifully put together that had me in tears of happiness it was just so cute.

The characters made this book special and I am going to miss them now that it's over. Brenna was a great female character as she came across this strong and independent person when really underneath it all she has so many insecurities she didn't realise what a great person she was. Tyler was amazing just as I knew he would be. He was really funny but like Brenna he did have a lot to deal with. My favourite character would actually have to be the child Jess as she was even funnier than her dad but more than that she was also wise beyond her years. It was great to see the characters from the previous books to see how their relationships are holding up.

Overall a cute and heart warming Christmas read.
