Virtual Tour - HAPPY EVER AFTER IN CHRISTMAS (Christmas, Colorado, #7) by Debbie Mason

Happy Ever After in Christmas
Christmas, Colorado, #7
by Debbie Mason 
Releasing June 28th 2016  

It's beginning to look a lot like love . . .

From The Book Junkie Reads . . . Happy Ever After in Christmas (Christmas, Colorado, #7) . . .
BEAUTIFUL. Just plain and simple to the points not flowery words or long drawn out explanation. I found this one beautiful, sweet, and touching. 

Now for the explanation. I got the drama, the humor, the chemistry, the respect, and the "I'm tired of waiting."  Jill works to make her life what she wants and that starts with going after what she wants. Sawyer Anderson.  Sawyer has been holding back. Holding back because of his friendship with Jack. This does not make for a happy Jill or a happy Sawyer. Life has a way of making things even out. The drama between family, friends, and lovers makes things here very interesting in Christmas, Colorado. The best part its not over the top drama that makes you want to walk away. Some of the drama was funny.

I have to say that I was not even halfway finished with this one when I made sure that I had a line on the first six books. Before I finished this one I was heading out to pick them up and bring them back home to start reading this weekend.  I highly recommend reading this one, but please get the others in this series also. Christmas, Colorado has much to offer those that are living on the outside of the quaint town.

Happily Ever After in Christmas – Christmas, Colorado, #7

As her thirtieth birthday approaches, Deputy Jill Flaherty decides it's time to live a little. When she walks into Sawyer Anderson's bar in her sexiest dress, she's not thinking that he's her brother's best friend or about the many women he dated during his years as a pro hockey player. All she's thinking is that it's finally time to confess to her longtime crush how she truly feels.

Sawyer is done being a player on and off the ice. Yet no one in the small town of Christmas seems to believe he's ready to settle down, not Jill, and certainly not Jack, who is determined to keep Sawyer from breaking his little sister's heart. But as Sawyer and Jill's relationship heats up, can he prove that he's her happy ever after?

"No, I--" Sawyer broke off at the sound of someone moaning at the other end of the bar. Afraid it was who he thought it was, he prepared himself before slowly turning his head. Brilliant blue eyes locked with his.
            "Oh, Sawyer, this is soo good. It's the perfect combo of spicy and sweet," Jill said, her voice huskier than normal. Something had happened to her hair too. She looked like she'd just been . . .
            "What's . . . " he cleared his throat ". . . going on with you?"
            She fluttered her lashes and ran her fingernail along the deep V of her dress. "It's the drink. It gave me a rush." Ty said something to her. She pursed her lips, then waved her hand in front of her face. "I'm all tingly and hot. Really, really hot."
            "Forget the whiskey.  I'll take whatever she's drinking," Mr. Murray said.
            Sawyer ignored him and stared at Jill. He didn't know what she was playing at, and she was definitely playing at something. She gave him a flirty finger wave. Jesus, she was flirting with him. No, couldn't be. It wasn't her style. He glanced at Ty because it was his style. "All right, out with it. What are you two up to?
            Ty nudged her.
            Jill scowled at Ty while scratching her neck and wriggling her shoulders. Just as Sawyer was about to prompt her again, she looked up at him from under her fake eyelashes. "I was wondering if . . ." She cleared her throat. "I was . . ." She trailed off when a fight broke out on the dance floor. She swiveled her bar stool and jumped off, about to head in that direction.
            Ty grabbed her by the arm. "No, you promised!
            "I can't just let them . . . " Jill began, wincing when a man stepped between the women to break them up and got kneed in the groin. She shook off Ty's hand.
            "Jill, I've got it. You--" Sawyer sighed. She was already halfway across the bar. He couldn't help but smile when she barked an order at the two women now rolling around in the middle of the dance floor. She hauled them to their feet, flattening a palm on their foreheads to keep them apart as she read them their rights. Sawyer laughed at the cheerful expression on her face. No doubt about it, she loved her job. And that was the Jill he knew. The one he was comfortable dealing with.
            Ty slid of his bar stool with a disappointed look on his face, reaching in his back pocket to pull out his wallet.
            "Don't worry about it, Ty. Jill covered both your drinks playing bouncer."
            Ty sighed and started to follow her out the door, then backtracked. "You know what? You should name a drink after her." He opened his cell phone and handed it to Sawyer. A picture of Jill filled the screen. She was standing in front of her Jeep, the sun setting behind the Rockies in the distance. She held her gun in one hand, her badge in the other. "Hot Cop works, don't you think?"
            Yeah. A little too well.
