Everyone knows I am a serious Sarah Morgan addict, so of course I yelled out my joy when the final of the Puffin Island series reached me,. Every Sarah Morgan book is like receiving that one special gift that will always be with you.
And this Christmas read will certainly always be with me as one of the best reads in the romance world. This time we get the low down on Skylar , she has never understood Alec Hunter's appeal, so what if he's a world renowned historian, who cares! He's cynical, aloof and determined to think the worst of her.
Then a twist of fate leaves Skylar having to spend Christmas with Alec's family and of course she's not thinking of this as being a merry affair or starry and bright either. That is until she get's into the festive mood.
Alec has learned the hard way to not trust beautiful woman, and Skylar is by far the most beautiful woman he has ever laid eyes on, then as he watches her tangle deeper and deeper into the family's festive chaos he starts to realize there is far more to this blonde bombshell than meets the eye.
Now with Christmas just around the corner Alec and Skylar return back to the gorgeous Puffin Island and they bring back a tentative bond formed between them. Neither one intends to fall in love but as the nights become darker and the flames of passion grow hotter you never know this could be the beginning of the romance of the year, and the happy ending they both crave!
A touch of Christmas sparkle , the joy of family and the beauty of love , is what this read is all about and there is no other author more suitable to the task of bringing it all to life. I cried, I laughed , I shouted out and yes I even felt like my heart was being torn to shreds, and then pieced back together again with such tender care it nearly brought me to my knees. Sarah Morgan has an exceptional talent that not only wows me each time but manages to pull me out from whatever slump I might be in.
This time it was the news of my father having to go for a heart operation next week. It felt like the most scariest words I have ever heard , so of course as I always do I find something to read to take away all the chaotic thoughts running through my mind, it's almost never worked, there is always a point in the books where my mind wanders but I can tell you that this time it was not the case, Sarah Morgan , Alec and Skylar managed to take away my focus on the bad for a full 4 hours! And even now as the date nears I can pull on those happy thoughts from the book and the strength the character of Skylar has to get me through the days.
The book is emotional, brilliantly crafted, has a gorgeous plot and stunning backdrops with that perfect Sarah Morgan magic ! Sarah Morgan is the magic that makes romance go round!
5/5 star review

CHRISTMAS EVER AFTER by author Sarah Morgan is a November 2015 release by Harlequin Mira.
This story takes us back to Puffin Island. We already read Emily Donovan’s story in First Time in Forever and Brittany Forrest’s in Some Kind of Wonderful.
Skylar Tempest is a successful jewelry designer but her parents think its just hobby. Therefore, she doesn’t get any appreciation or support from her family. Yet she has her own close friends on Puffin Island who not only love and support her, but are there for her every step of the way.
She meets brooding Alec Hunter on the island. But she hates him on sight and the feeling seems to be mutual. So under pressure Alec goes to Sky’s art exhibition while in London. He planned on showing his face and be on his way. Yet when he reaches there, he finds Sky in unexpected and unforeseen circumstance. He does what a good person would do and help her. But being together they see a different side to each other and sparks fly and they decide on ‘no emotional ties, angst-free diet version of a relationship. Relationship lite, nonfat!’
But what would happen when one of them begins to change the rules? And falls in love? Could it work?
CHRISTMAS EVER AFTER is a sensational story. It is like a Christmas miracle happening in front of your eyes. To get Alec and Sky together was a miracle in itself. Author Sarah Morgan always pens fabulous stories full of shimmering emotions. When Sky’s friends were quizzing Alec why Sky had left, I had tears streaming down my face at all the friends’ relationship. Sarah Morgan knows how to delve deep with emotions and move a reader to tears. All the readers of CHRISTMAS EVER AFTER would be hooked from the very first page until the end.
Highly recommended for all readers of romance.
