✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ His for the Holidays by Samantha Chase

 

His for the Holidays
By: Samantha Chase
Narrated by: Elizabeth Cottle

Hannah Christy was eager to head home and devour her treats in solitude while doing some prep work for the promotion she was vying for. Those plans came to a screeching halt...along with the elevator...trapping her inside with her sexy neighbor. 

After being trapped with his match-making family over Thanksgiving, getting stuck in an elevator was a welcome reprieve for Gage Lawson.

If it was up to him, he would gladly stay stranded well into the new year. Especially since his neighbor has a whole treasure trove of ideas on how to pass the time. The best Christmas cookies he’s ever tasted. Delicious spiced wine. Fun getting-to-know-you games. It’s the most holiday merriment he’s had in a long while. 

Somewhere in the midst of it all, Gage comes up with the perfect plan. A fake romance to help make both their family get-togethers more jolly! To his surprise, Hannah agrees to be his for the holidays. Yet with the mistletoe in full bloom, and her on his arm, Gage soon realizes their little Christmas show isn't enough. He wants her for real...and forever. 

Roast the chestnuts and hang the stockings, Gage has a plan! With the help of the 55-and-over residents, magical flurries, and a never-ending supply of hot cocoa with extra marshmallows, he’s determined to show Hannah that Christmas is the most wonderful time of year to fall in love.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

His for the Holidays is such a fun story, perfect for relaxing in your favorite chair before the holiday crazy or even after as you rest up for New Year's. Gage and Hannah are likable characters both together and separately, and I absolutely loved Gage's family, particularly his mother. They meet in the elevator in their building, which of course, sparks the attraction, and a combination of circumstances leads to a fake relationship for the holidays. I'll leave the rest for you to find out yourself (no spoilers here) but suffice it to say that the whole book is full of feel-good holiday vibes. We do get a wee bit of angst, but it's just right for the tone of the book, and it isn't at all over the top. Elizabeth Cottle narrates this one, and she keeps the energetic feel of the story all the way through. To the best of my recollection, this is my first time for both author and narrator, and I thoroughly enjoyed both.
