"Baby Under the Christmas Tree" by Teresa Carpenter

My Book Summary : Elle has been a girly girl for as long as she can remember. Being the youngest of four boys and their annoying affiliation for playing sports or enjoying sporting games can do that to a girl. Therefore, she is still trying to find a guy who is able to straddle the line between liking/possibly playing sports to enjoying the symphony and other cultural things too. However, she definitely does not believe that Max (also known as "The Beast" and is the enforcer for the San Diego Thunder hockey team) could ever be her "Prince Charming."

Nevertheless, they will find out if the chemistry that they sparked a year ago is still there or not during their forced time together while, Elle helps Max get custody of his son, Troy. While they are together, will Elle decide to protect her heart by distancing herself from them as much as she’s able or is she willing to break her job’s rules to be with Max and Troy as a family? Maybe beauty just found her beast...

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, this fast-paced novel is a sweet and fun story about two unlikely people coming together! I liked how Elle handled herself throughout this whole novel. She was smart, decisive, kind, and feisty, definitely keeping Max on his toes. Max, Elle, and Troy made a great trio that I enjoyed reading about!

I recommend this novel to anyone who likes contemporary romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
"She wasn't a hellion," Dad defended her. "She was my pretty little princess."
Elle grinned and turning the other way she kissed her dad on the cheek. "I love you, too."
"It says something, doesn't it---" hope filled Becca's voice "---that he trusts you with his son."
Elle gave a long-suffering laugh. "Good try, Mom. Not going to happen."
"Okay." Her mom sighed. "But it's a shame."
"Why is that?" Elle was almost afraid to ask.
"As Dad says, you were his pretty little princess. As a little girl you spent hours playing Belle. I can just see the two of you together, Beauty and The Beast."
Elle nearly choked on the moisture stick she was using on her lips. People really had to stop saying that. ~ within Chapter 8
