    3.5 starsThe blurb for this book caught by eye and honestly who can resist a story about a little boy who wants a Mom for Christmas, not me and I did enjoy Wanted A Mom for Christmas even though it was a bit too easy considering all the circumstances surrounding this couple and the hero s two children.Seven years ago Hawk Savage s life was turned upside down when his wife died leaving him the single parent to a 3 year old daughter and an infant son He managed with help of family and friends, but with his children growing older he s beginning to doubt his ability to get through a teenage girl s puberty and a young boy who desperately wants a mother When laid out by the flu, a woman appears from Rent A Mom and nurses him back to life while delighting his son with holiday decorating and bit by bit getting his shy and unsure daughter to interact Olympic Medalist Nora Joy s life implodes when she finds out the injury to her shoulder might keep her off the National Team, she walks in to find her boyfriend screwing her sand volleyball partner, and her mother agent confesses she s not only blown all of Nora s money but she s actually in debt over her head Determined to take a hold of her life Nora applies for every job and lands one in her old hometown of Climax, North Carolina and turns up on the doorstep of her old high school boyfriend and his adorable two children.It was easy to like both Hawk and Nora from the start of this book and feel for both of their situations although honestly, Nora s felt a little bit over the top Scene stealer 7 year old Henry Lee HL had an infectious personality and was impossible not to love from the start Stoic, shy, and extremely intelligent 10 year old Heather, internalized everything and despite her mom being gone for seven years she still feels the loss deeply which broke my heart for her From the minute Nora arrived on their doorstep, HL was immediately drawn to Nora and their outgoing personalities made it fun to watch them bond from the start While Heather sat back and watched, it was easy to see that she was interested in the loud, strange, woman who came into their lives but she wasn t ready to go all in Once Hawk was up and around, their prior relationship made it easy for them to fall easily into each other s lives The Christmas spirit and a bit of competitiveness has these four working together and building a family relationship before they even realize it.Sweet, sentimental, with a bit of sexy heat, and a Christmas backdrop to boot made Wanted Mom for Christmas a cute and entertaining holiday story.

    Nora is losing her dream and instead of fighting it she is looking for a way out Rent a mom is the job she takes and escapes her life Hawk tries to be the best father he can but a teenage daughter needs some female help Luckily for him his ex girlfriend is about to roll back into his life These two need a little help in their livesThis is a Christmas story with lots of spirit and a sweet romance It s about family and second chances.It reminded me of a Hallmark Christmas movie.4 Stars out of 5 Predictable but enjoyable I received an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for a fair review Thanks

    I couldn t end the Cates Brothers Series without giving Henry Lee and his dad, Hawk Savage, their own HEA So I wrapped up their story with a big red bow and lots of Christmas magic.

    I found a new author I m so glad I did This one was really good Nora Hoy was an Olympic volleyball player A shoulder injury has her sidelined and considering giving it up When she discovers her mother, who is also her manager, has left Nora broke, Nora answers an ad for a Rent A Mom When she shows up for an interview, she s met at the door by kids, Heather and HL Apparently Dad is laid up with the flu Nora immediately steps in and takes care of dad and the kids She s stunned, however, to discover that Dad , in this instance, is Hawk Savage, a man she had a relationship with as a teenager She d been in love with him then and once reunited, it doesn t take long for those old feelings to re surface And while both have obstacles to overcome, it s Christmas and miracles do happen.Really enjoyed this one The writer did a great job with the characters Fell in love with Hawk from the get go when he endeared me to him via his relationship with his kids Even though it s been seven years since his wife died, he s still doubting himself when it comes to raising Heather and HL The fact Heather wants him to take her bra shopping makes him break out in a cold sweat What happens when she wants to start dating And HL wants another mommy but Hawk hasn t really been looking It takes Nora s return to get him thinking about it.Definitely recommend

    4.5 Star review of Wanted Mom for Christmas Cates Brothers 5.5 by Lee Kilraine Lee Kilraine is a new author to me Recently I have found myself gravitating to stories of single dads and when I saw the premise for this story I jumped at the chance to read.Although not a particularly long story and part of a series, I didn t know that when I requested I had no difficulty reading Wanted Mom for Christmas.Hawk Savage is a single dad of two, daughter Heather who is 10 and son Henry Lee call me HL who is 8 My heart just about broke for these children, probably as my father died when I was 9, I can empathise with the story line.Essentially this is a second chance at love story for Hawk Savage and his teenage girl friend Nora Joy who suddenly re appears in his life as a Rent A Mom.I loved this heart warming and sensitive tale about a little boy who desperately wants a Mom for Christmas I will admit at times I was moved to shed a few tears as this was an emotional read for me Having said that, this was one of those books I didn t want to put down and I was annoyed when real life got in the way of finishing the book..Hawk struggles, particularly with the fact that Heather is moving towards puberty and he feels like a failure as he tries to manoeuvre through such a challenging time in a young girls life, often feeling he has failed his children.I loved the inter action of Nora and Hawk and Nora and the children The Savage family made me laugh and cry, the story line was moving and handled well and I so enjoyed this book that I am going to look into the other books in the series as soon as I can find some spare time.I received a copy of this book through the publisher via Netgalley.

    Wanted Mom for Christmas by Lee KilraineCates Brothers 5.5Second chance at love for an Olympic medalist and a small town cop that were once high school sweethearts will they find a HEA probably Nora Joy had a no good very bad day that continued downhill with one hit after another until she felt she had hit rock bottom and then a job in her old hometown appeared as if by magic She grabbed the job with both hands and headed to Climax, North Carolina to become rent a mom to the children of Jackson Hawk Savage Henry Lee HL , at eight, is active, fun loving and desires a mother for Christmas while his sister, ten year old Heather, is quiet and shy and just his opposite Nora is competitive by nature so being the best rent a mom she can be is her goal Sparks definitely fly as chemistry that once existed is found to still thrive The holiday spirit, family, competition, doing one s best, communication, grief, magic and are part and parcel in this delightful holiday romance Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Lyrical Shine for the ARC This is my honest review 3 4 Stars

    Review also found at I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you This review is going to be short as I am going to try to sum my thoughts up as briefly and concisely as possible.This book was written for those, like myself, who are Christmas fanatics and love everything about the holiday season well I may have a slight issue with Christmas music but that aside, love everything else If you, like myself, find yourself binge watching the W network and its made for TV Christmas movies, this is the book for you In fact, Lilraine, if your people have not already pitched this, have them do it, it would be perfect This story has all the ingredients that make a perfect Christmas story Children in need of a mother, a man in need of a love and companion, a Christmas miracle and some hijinks in between I have been following this series but it is not required if you are simply looking for a nice Christmas read You can read this on its own.Just grab a cup of hot chocolate, turn the fireplace on and grab this story

    E ARC is received thanks to the publisher via Netgalley.Did I request this because the hero s name is Hawk Savage and it reminds me of my two favourite KA characters Hawk Delgado and Indy Savage Yep.Anyway, this is my first Lee Kilraine book, and it s a short and fast read While I think the writing could be a little stronger, I really like Nora and the Savages, especially little Henry Lee Savage who is super adorable and a show stealer Hawk and Nora were high school lovers until Nora moved away and they lost contact On the one hand, I enjoyed seeing them reconnecting and Nora bonding with Hawk s kids On the other hand, I do feel that their relationship development is a bit rushed and Nora s unfortunate situation in the beginning of the story too contrived, but I understand the drawbacks of having to cram in everything in a novella length story The epilogue is a winner, though.This book is a part of the Cates Brothers series something I was only aware after I requested the book, LOL but it reads just fine on its own.
