Married for Christmas | Noelle Adams
7 posts | 3 read | 2 to read
After years of dreaming, Jessica is finally getting married, but the marriage isn't exactly what she thought. Daniel is her best friend, and she's known him all her life, but he's never gotten over losing his wife two years ago. His dream is to become the pastor of the church in their hometown, but the small-town congregation keeps balking over calling an unmarried minister. Since Daniel needs a wife and Jessica wants a husband and family, she proposes an arrangement that benefits both of them. They can get married. They can build a life together. They can celebrate Christmas as a couple. It's fine that he doesn't love her. And it's fine that she's not exactly suited to be a small-town pastor's wife. And it's fine that she's more attracted to her sexy, brooding husband every day. Jessica can be practical about this marriage. She knows what she's getting into, after all... (This book includes fully-developed sex scenes between a husband and wife.)

Rating: 3.5 / 5

Married for Christmas is a romance novel, which I chose to read because it had Christmas in the title. I found it fast-paced, romantic, and steamy. Those create a good combination of elements for a good romance and a bonus: there is a dog. There are religious elements in it, which I didn't really mind, but it didn't help me either, to connect with the characters and the story.

In her author's note, Noelle Adams describes this series as contemporary romance where the characters are religious, as opposed to inspirational romance. That explains why there's more sex and profanity than I expect from religious fiction!

Her books are great, too. I love how these protagonists negotiate their new marriage and develop their loving instincts. Also, the heroine has a dog. Everything's better with a dog! #romantsy

I finally got to eat at Cafe Bliss, a vegan joint that's been on my radar for over two years. I had their delicious warm açai chia bowl and what must've been half a litre of tea while I zoomed through MARRIED FOR CHRISTMAS.

AmandaL That looks delicious. 5y
xicanti @AmandaL it was super good. Well-textured and just a little bit spicy. 5y
ChrysFey That looks so good! 5y
xicanti @ChrysFey their whole menu is drool-worthy! I'll have to go back. 5y

I had an early, early breakfast with what I'm pretty sure is the penultimate holiday romance in my stash. #romantsy

Last night I set out to knock a digital freebie or two off la TBR, but I loved A FAMILY FOR CHRISTMAS by Noelle Adams so much that I had to see what else she's got.

The answer is, "tons of stuff, including five books that're currently free." So my TBR reduction plan has officially backfired.
