Review: The Christmas Wedding Ring by Susan Mallery

Goodreads:  In her youth, Molly Anderson couldn't help crushing on gorgeous bad-boy Dylan Black—even though he only had eyes for her older sister. When things didn't work out between them, he said goodbye to Molly as well, vowing they'd have a great adventure when she grew up. Years later, dumped by her fiancé just before Christmas, she's finally ready to take Dylan up on his promise.

A guarded Dylan always had a weakness for Molly, and when she waltzes back into his life—grown-up and gorgeous—he's stunned. So why not whisk her away for some no-strings-attached fun?

Laughter-filled days and late-night kisses are changing Molly's life, for good. The only gift she truly wants now is Dylan's love, but when he discovers the secret she's been keeping, she may lose him again…this time forever.

Kritters Thoughts:  Molly Anderson has spent the last number of years with a ring that was given to her by a crush with a promise of a future adventure and when her life sort of falls apart she decides to call in that adventure and take a break from her life to decide what is going to be next for herself.  Dylan Black has been building a business that revolves around a passion, but he has hit a crossroad when the mess of business is interfering with his ability to actually create new product and do what he really loves.  This adventure is perfectly time for him as well.

I loved this story.  Without spoiling a major plot situation, I had something super in common with this character and the feelings that she had with Dylan.  For me this book felt close to home and since I am far removed from my moment, it was just refreshing to revisit those feelings and know that I healed from that time.

I loved the stand alone quality of this book was really appealing during the holiday season.  It was great to read a book that wasn't a part of a series and have no feelings of missing out on any part of the character's backstories.  I was glad to know that when I finished this story I was finishing the whole story.

Molly and Dylan were great characters to follow on this adventure.  They felt like real people in a real story and I love it when a fiction story doesn't go over the stop, but stays semi rooted in reality.  

I want more of this every holiday season to read!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
