Book Review: Married for Christmas by Noelle Adams

Married for Christmas (Willow Park #1) by Noelle Adams
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: December 1, 2013
Publisher: Self

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. 

Married for Christmas is the first book in the Willow Park series by Noelle Adams. The relationship between Jessica and Daniel was hard to stop reading about, so I pretty much didn't. I think I stopped once or twice to do things like pee or drink,but that was about it. *wink* I'll admit, I didn't care for Daniel too much in the beginning, and that mostly had to do with how he talked about the dog. If he was going to be a dog hater, I just wouldn't be able to like him. I'm not going to tell you if he came around or not, but I will say, there was tremendous growth between both the characters on many levels. Speaking of levels, the heat level between Jessica and Daniel was pretty steamy. The writing during these parts was just right. Not everything needs to be spelled out, and this author gets that. This was a fast read, and I'm all too ready for Micah's story in the next book!

Noelle handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she reads any book she can get her hands on and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.

She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many years of her life in graduate school, she has decided to reorient her priorities and focus on writing contemporary romances.
