Under the Mistletoe with Me Review

Book description…
Isaac and Stacy Montgomery have been married for ten years. They have a beautiful new baby girl, Isaac’s construction business is thriving, and Stacy enjoys being a stay at home mom, reviewing sexy romance novels for her blog. With a very large extended family, and the many privileges they enjoy, Stacy will be the first to admit that they are blessed beyond measure.
When suspicious phone calls and text messages begin, Stacy questions Isaac’s faithfulness for the first time in their marriage. She knows that a new baby brings changes into a relationship, but has the stress of parenthood sent Isaac into another woman’s arms, threatening to destroy their marriage?
This With Me In Seattle novella shows us a glimpse into Jules’ brother, Isaac, and his wife Stacy’s lives, introduces us to some new characters, and reminds us of what it means to reconnect with the person you love the most, even if they never left in the first place.

First of all I adore the With Me in Seattle series…. Kristen writes sweet stories about people who find their true love when they least expect it.  She’s got this flow that keeps me engrossed in her characters and what will happen next.  She creates these characters with hearts of gold and so filled with love that you can’t help but fall in love with them too.

Under the Mistletoe with Me is no exception… the only difference is Isaac and Stacy have been together for years and after having a baby it’s time to reconnect. 

Stacy is a sweet woman who like most new moms has a few insecurities and an extremely stressful life, but she wouldn’t trade it for the world.  She’s married to the love of her life and they just had an adorable baby girl after years and years of trying to get pregnant.  She’s unwilling to give up her blog (Umm, I can relate girl!) because it’s for her and it’s something she loves to do.  She is extremely close with her family and the loves she has for them runs so deep she can feel it in her bones.  But not everything is sugar and spice… her marriage is starting to pay the price… or at least she thinks it is.

Isaac is a sneaky man… he’s actually smokin’ hot with his heart and attention in the right place, quite frankly there are a lot of men that could take some pointers from him!  He adores his wife and daughter but knows that it’s time for him to reconnect with his wife.  After years of getting comfortable in their marriage and then years of infertility treatments they lost some of that spark they had in the beginning.  So Isaac sets his heart on reconnecting with his wife… even if it means that she is a little blown away at first.

Their story is sweet… the love they have for each other is pure and it’s beautiful.  Their story is also hot… massages and fires Oh, My!  The best part of their story is that it’s not only cute but it’s funny.  These two lovable characters are funny and playful and in all honesty they remind me of my marriage. 

Under The Mistletoe With Me is definitely worth reading, it’s light and fun with a sweet little surprise for Christmas.  Now, I am even more anxious for more of the Montgomery family… I’m excited for Nate and Jules in Fight With Me!

Happy Reading!
