The Secret Santa Wishing Well
By: Nikki Lynn Barrett


The magic of Christmas has been lost to Jacob Winston. At the suggestion of his ill sister, Jacob takes a job as a Secret Santa at the mall, hoping to restore his Christmas spirit. Even that doesn't seem to work, until a special little boy ambles up to make a very special wish...
Cheyenne Jensen is struggling to raise her two kids without the help of her ex-husband who refuses to acknowledge his daughter's existence and doesn't provide for the son he does. This Christmas is shaping up to be as heartbreaking as the last, until her son Ben's kind actions lead a stranger to them.
Ah, but it's Christmas time and the magic has begun.
When Jacob and Cheyenne meet, neither can deny their immediate attraction to one another. As situations arise that require they spend more time together, their feelings grow stronger and stronger.
With Christmas fast approaching, the pair learn what matters most in life. Now, if only they could ditch the ghost of Christmases past.
Maybe this holiday will bring some wishes come true- for everyone after all.

It didn’t take long for her to come back.  Jacob moved to the living room, standing and waiting.  When he saw her coming, he closed the gap between them.  Before he could could think twice, he touched her shoulder gently, wanting to thank her for the evening.
But instead of talking, he leaned in and kissed her.  Just a light kiss.  Gentle.  Friendly.
Until she responded.  She had her arms around him, pulling him for another kiss.  Deeper.  Sweeter.  She tasted so sweet.  Her need made him swell.  He could do this all night.  Jacob pressed her against the wall, their kisses deepening with urgency.  He ran his fingers through her fine hair.  Her hands wrapped around his neck, rubbing lightly.  She tasted so good.
Jacob pulled back abruptly.  “Cheyenne,” he ground out.  “We have to stop.”
Before I lose it.
He didn’t want to stop.  He never expected her to reciprocate like this.  Wow.  Maybe it wasn’t one sided after all.  Jacob sighed.
That halted everything.  She pulled away, looking at him with wide, beautiful eyes.  “I’m sorry.  I pushed.  You must think I’m a fool.  I thought, when you kissed me...”  Cheyenne attempted to move out of Jacob’s  embrace.  Oh, damn.  She  thought  he  didn’t want her.  He did, oh, how he did.
“No, no.  Honey, that’s not it at all.  Kissing you was magical.  Amazing.  But we just met.  I don’t want to take things too far.  But I would love to see you again.”  He pushed back loose strands of her hair that hung over her face when she’d moved.  She looked so vulnerable.  Was she going to cry?  Oh hell, he wouldn’t be able to handle it if she did.  The last thing he wanted was for her to be upset with him.
“I’d like that, too.  It was a wonderful, amazing day, and I have you to thank for it.”  She nearly whispered the words, choking up on the last part.  “God, I’m a mess.  I’m sorry.  There’s been so much going on, and my signals are going crazy at the moment.”

My Review

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

5 glowing wishes! 

Hotness Factor: it's sweet, it's charming and no belly full of jelly (we checked)

Okay I have to say it. I might be a little bias, I’m a Nikki Lynn Barrett fan. I read Baby Stetson this summer and loved it. I was more than happy to win a copy of The Secret Santa Wishing Well and then review it as part of  its blurb tour.
It’s that time of the year again, sugar cookies, trips to Starbucks for a nonfat Eggnog latte (don’t burst my bubble), watching another crazy spinoff of A Christmas Carol… I haven’t seen a decent Christmas movie in ages! It’s forced and always with a deadline –Christmas day like it was the end of the world… What they should do is take a page on The Secret Santa Wishing. I’ll watch this movie. Heck I’ll cast it too.
Fade in… enters Jacob (Colin Egglesfield) in the life of Cheyenne (Jennifer Love Hewitt). He had lost hope for good reasons, she had lost hope for good reasons too. But then there’s Ben Cheyenne’s son and the best six year old I’ve ever read about and with a simple well in the middle of the mall, he brought these two lonely souls together… Fade out.
Like the pitch? Then you will love the story. It is about fate, family, loss and love and yes it’s a little corny at times but so are every Christmas story I’ve ever read or watched. It’s the time of the year of sweet corniness, for second chances, new love… So grab another nonfat eggnog latte (do not I repeat do not burst my bubble) and get your copy.  Merry Christmas!
