✱✱Book Review✱✱ Here with You (Winter Valley Book 3) by Claudia Burgoa & Grahame Claire


USA TODAY Bestselling authors Claudia Burgoa and Grahame Claire bring you an enchanting Best Friend’s Little Sister holiday romance filled with sarcasm, love, and mistletoes.

I finally landed my dream job.

No one told me my childhood crush came with it.

Theo Foster, my brother’s best friend.

The famous billionaire playboy, race car driver, and my long-time frenemy.

Now I’m forced to see him every day.

And that childhood crush…

It hasn’t gone anywhere.

Lucky for me, Theo Foster isn't one to stick around and he'll be out of Winter Valley in no time.

If only he'd stop being all flirty with me.

He isn't supposed to be all swoony and romantic.

And I’m not supposed to flirt back.

But a few caresses and kisses shouldn’t matter.

Or do they?

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Somehow, I missed the first two Winter Valley books, but now that I've met these characters, I plan to remedy that. That didn't hinder my enjoyment of Here with You in the slightest. There are some things I want to know more about, but the story stands alone. The authors give us enough information to get a good understanding of what happened in the past to come between Theo and Elisse, which is impressive with such a quick read.
Elisse and Theo's romance is the best friend's little sister/brother's best friend trope. There's also some animosity between them that has the feel of an enemies to lovers romance. That comes with some fiery banter and sparks flying as the tension between them builds. Needless to say, there's so good chemistry going on here.
I love that these characters were so relatable. Especially Elisse for me. I completely get that being stretched too thin feeling and trying to please everyone while overlooking my own wants and needs. Theo has a little of that too, but Elisse is stretched almost to breaking - something I can understand from experience.
So, this may be my first Winter Valley romance, but it didn't take long for me to realize that I've got some catching up to do. Small town, terrific characters, witty banter, and romance. Yep, that's my kind of read.
