’Twas a week before Christmas, and at the auction house…

At six foot one, Gwen Chambers has felt like a giant her whole life. She’s a calm, capable nurse saving lives in a busy London hospital, but healthy men give her heart palpitations. When larger-than-life rugby player “Little” John Sheldon convinces her to bid on him in his team’s fundraising auction, she discovers how pleasurable heart palpitations can be.

A rugby player was stirring, with desire no one could douse…

John has wanted Gwen since he first saw her, but when he’s injured in a match just before Christmas he suddenly needs her too. Not only can the sexy nurse help him recover, but she might be able to help him look after his daughter—a shy ten-year-old who speaks only French.

But will it be a Happy Christmas for all, and for all a good night?

From decorating the Christmas tree to ice skating at the Tower of London, Gwen helps father and daughter open up and bond with each other—and she bonds right along with them. But when John’s agent calls with a life-changing offer, Gwen has to decide how far she’s willing to go for her perfect match. Will their first Noël also be their last?

Unwrapping Her Perfect Match was exactly what I needed after reading several slow, draggy books that made me feel like I was heading into a reading slump. This novella was funny, sweet, sexy, and heartwarming. I haven’t read any of the other books in the London Legends series, but a) I didn’t feel lost reading this in-between novella, and b) I’ll definitely be going back and reading the first book in the series!

Gwen had trouble trusting people. Between her size (6'1") and things that happened in her past, her default was to assume she’d be the butt of people’s jokes. I know what it’s like to worry people will make fun of you based on your physical appearance, so I connected easily with Gwen. She was smart, funny, and had a huge heart. She wanted to be useful to prove her worth, because she thought that was the only reason people would want her around, but John made her feel all the things she’d always longed to feel. It wasn’t always easy, though. As sweet as John was, he could be clueless at times, but I loved that because it felt realistic. He and Gwen had misunderstandings and issues, but they were so good for each other, it was easy to root for them from beginning to end.

Besides being hilarious and super sexy, Unwrapping Her Perfect Match was also incredibly sweet. Watching John and Gwen with John’s daughter Agnes pulled at my heart strings. I even teared up a few times. This story had everything - romance, family, real-life issues, humour, steamy sexytimes. For a novella, it sure packed in a lot, and I enjoyed every moment of it.

Perfect for any time of year, but especially around the holidays, Unwrapping Her Perfect Match was the perfect match for me (sorry, I had to)!

  2. Sounds adorable. I love when a book keeps it realistic but still fun! It sounds like it's got so much going for it which is great in a novella.
