If you are a fan of Jill Shalvis’s Heartbreaker Bay series, then you’ve been waiting for Sean O’Riley’s story and Holiday Wishes. We have seen Sean grow over the first four books. He has always been the hearthrob that girls throw their panties at, but in this book we see a more mature Sean. He is in charge of throwing a co-ed bachelor weekend at a B&B in wine country for his brother and is determined that everything is going to be perfect. Of course, there are a couple of wrenches thrown into his plans. When they arrive at the B&B he’s surprised to see Lottie, a girl he liked in high school. After losing their virginity to each other as teenagers she moved away and Sean, being a typical young doofus, didn’t keep in touch as he said he would. When Lottie sets eyes on Sean her first reaction is why now? She’s had a tough time of it lately and isn’t about to risk her heart again to someone who’s already disappointed her.
Sometimes a novella isn’t long enough to do the characters justice. This is definitely not one of those times. The reason why this story works is because we knew Sean. We’ve watched him change and mature over four books. We’ve loved his relationship with his brother Finn, and that same warmth is given to Lottie. It’s no wonder she didn’t stand a chance against him!
You MUST read the other novels in this series before reading Holiday Wishes. I wish I could say it wouldn’t matter if you didn’t, but as I said above, the reason why it works is because we already have a relationship with Sean. We only needed to love him with Lottie, which was an easy thing to do. ❤️❤️❤️❣️
