Mischievous Christmas Angel (Angels with Attitudes Series Book 5) by Mimi Barbour
After one night of blistering lovemaking that would bring any sane man to his knees clutching a ring, Jack’s forced to accept Mia’s unexpected rejection. Then when she seems to be warming up to having a relationship, danger erupts around him in freakish accidents and mystical happenings. How can he permit her and her little girl to be anywhere near these threats?
Mia lovingly adopts her best friend’s four-year-old child in accordance with her will. She also agrees to move her new family and her business to live with her aunt before the Christmas holidays arrive. But… she isn’t willing to hold on to a man because of one incredible night’s loss of restraint.
I’ve read a few of the other books in the series. But I don’t think you need to read them in order.
Mia is devastated, her best friend has died, cruelly taken from her in a car accident. They’ve known each other forever, in fact when Jasmine’s mother abandoned her, Mia and her family gave her a new home. And when Jasmine became pregnant, the two girls brought her up between them. But the memories in the apartment they shared is just too much, she’s going back to live with her aunt.
Jack thinks he’s a broken man, after being wounded in Afghanistan, it’s taken time to be rehabilitated and mobile. His friend and neighbour has helped immensely, giving him handyman jobs and making him feel part of a family. For a long time he battled with pain and drug addiction, but aunt Angie gave him a place to start over.
Both jack and Mia know about each other through Angie, but neither have met each other yet. So both are surprised when they meet at Mia’s home (she’s packing up her home to go live her aunt) Jack thinks she’s a cutie and Mia thinks he’s hot.
The story then takes a few twists and turns, wrong words and misunderstandings have these two people thinking the worse. But with the help of Lucas (Jack’s guardian angel) things are back on track.
It’s a feel good book, a few good laughs and a couple of moments where you want to slap the main characters. I love aunt Angie she’s so funny. And little Maisie is such a bundle of fun.
