Review for "Kiss Me on This Cold December Night" by Charlotte Phillips

The third novella in Charlotte Phillips’ deliciously sensual Do Not Disturb series.
Christmas in London – a time for late night shopping on Regent’s Street or ice skating at Somerset House under a blanket of twinkling fairy lights, the warming, welcoming aroma of mulled wine in the air…

Or, alternatively, a time for bumping into the ghosts of one night stands past in Ella Scott’s case!

Checking into her boutique hotel for a weekend of Christmas shopping, the last person Ella expects to bump into at reception is Tom bloody Henley – ambitious doctor, highly eligible bachelor and with whom she had the most unbelievable, mind-blowing brief encounter five Christmases ago.

But Ella slipped out quietly the morning after all those years ago for a reason and although Tom’s got a look on his face that suggests Christmas has come early, there’s no way she’s going to be repeating past mistakes… right?

***************************************

Unfortunately.... This was not one of my favorite reads this year.  I'll admit there was lots of romance and hot scenes but no substance to back it up.

Ella gets invited to enjoy a trip with a friend that doesn't show up due to a storm and Tom gets stuck in the city due to the same weather.  They had met before and the encounter remains with them.  Tom is determined for them to become reacquainted

This story reminds me of jumping into a puddle with both feet.  There's no real beginning to get you ready for the story or characters.  Then when you get to the middle of the story there's not much of a climax.  The only redeeming feature of the story is the love scenes.

If your looking for an easy read I'd recommend this.  I give this book 3 Stars!
