Sometimes…love is the only thing that can free you.
When Emory Chambers asked Santa for someone to warm her cold nights, she hadn’t expected him to actually deliver. But he does. The only problem… He delivers the wrong man. Her ex is the last person she expects to see stroll into her floral design shop. The second their eyes meet old feelings rush back, and their connection sparks as potent as ever. But she has to ignore the fact that she still loves him. Especially since he’s engaged to be married.
Christian St. Claire is a man lost. That’s until a floral consultation for his upcoming wedding brings him face-to-face with Emory–the only woman he’s ever truly loved. He refuses to allow himself to fall under her spell again. But despite how hard he’s trying, he can’t shake his feelings for the woman who shattered him. Reconnecting with Emory forces him to question himself. Can he vow his life to another when his heart still pounds for the one who got away?
The Night Before Christian – A Christmas Novella Book Review:
This is the first book “The Night Before Christian” that I have read by Joy Avery. This is a magnificent Inspiration Holiday Romance narrative. The only thing that Emory Chambers wanted for Christmas is a strong, romantic, and dependable man. The Characters of Christian and Emory had such a magnificent well-founded romance. In the storyline, two years ago family drama forced Emory to break up with Christian St. Claire, the only man she has ever loved. The way of life that form this break up and caused them go their separate ways were forced to resolve once they saw each other again. Emory have to take care of her mother ‘Ms. Anne’ and her sister ‘Jordyn’ but now was time for Emory to let someone take care of her. At the moment Christian is standing right in front of Emory Chambers ordering flowers for his upcoming wedding to Yasmin. “The Night Before Christian” is an awesome Christmas romance story to read. Emory and Christian were once lovers who realized that they have unfinished matters with people who are controlling the situation that is keeping them apart. We all can relate just like Emory and Christian, that it is difficult to get over first loves. Alongside everything launched at you from several directions, sometimes you have to ask, is it worth all the trouble? I have to be honest that the conclusion of this narrative surprised me in the direction that I wasn’t expecting and that what a great novel should be all about. I will definitely recommend this book for everyone that love reading a great Christmas Romance novel. Hopefully that Joy Avery will continue the story with more about the character of Jordyn and Chauncey. I am going to read more works by Joy Avery.
