Kindergarten teacher Sarah Larsen has spent her whole life being the good girl. But now, she’s ready to do something bad. So wearing the shortest, tightest black dress she owns, she marches over to the nearest bar to fulfill her Christmas fantasy: a wild night with a total stranger.
Walker Callahan moved to Silver Creek to start fresh. He doesn’t want to bring his baggage into a relationship, so an evening of fun with the sexiest welcoming committee ever is just what he needs.
They were both in it for one night with no strings attached.. But when Sarah discovers that Walker is the father of her new student, things turn deliciously complicated. Can the cold winter nights thaw two frozen hearts?
I loved Sarah. She’s spent a lot of years under her grandmother’s cold control and she’s finally free to discover who she really wants to be. The only problems is one of her first steps is to have a one night stand … with a man who turns out to be the single father of one of her kindergarten students. Not the best of starts. Thrown together over the holidays, though, Walker helps her find a path to be the person she wants to be, without even realizing it. He doesn’t intentionally do it for her but he provides support along the way and it’s fantastic.
Walker was burned by his ex-wife and he’s not willing to give someone his heart again. He’s hurt and scared and trying to do the right things for his daughter. He’s finding Sarah hard to resist and, of course, when she gets too close he runs away. But the moment when he realizes how much Sarah actually means to him is super sweet.
Unwrapped is another perfect read to get you in the mood for the holidays – it has a sympathetic heroine who finds her true self, a troubled hero who figures out what is worth fighting for, and an adorable little girl to yank on your heart strings.
