Blurb: Two hundred years ago on Christmas Eve, William Mashinter was frozen in time, cursed by his wife to roam the world on his own, waiting for the love of his life to find him. The love of his life, whom she killed. Time hasn’t healed this wound, and William is tired of the happy holiday and the constant reminders of a love that’s been taken from him. But then the impossible happens, and maybe… maybe he can get a new Christmas perspective.
Brady Gallagher has lived three different lives, always aware of the first and most important, yet unable to find the man who will fill in the missing pieces and let him know he’s not crazy. He encounters him at a work event, of all places, but is he willing to throw everything else to the wind and embrace the miracle laid out before him?
Review: For two hundred years, William Mashinter hates Christmas. On Christmas Eve, two centuries ago, William’s lover Brady was killed by William’s vicious wife as an act of revenge. William is cursed to live his life alone until Brady finds his way back to him again.
I had questions in my head regarding the curse and how it worked. Usually there are clues on how to break it, but in this story, it wasn’t really clear to me. Jennifer only said to Brady, “… And you won’t have peace until William does” – what does it mean?!? What kind of peace? What makes this year so special that William and Brady finally reunited? Even at the end, I didn’t get it. There was also a question about Brady’s number of past lives that just didn’t sound correct. But that would be a little too nitpicky of me, wouldn’t it?
Apart from that, I thought this was a sweet story of how true love stood against time (and curses). The reunion was filled with shock, happiness, and then steamy moments, which was understandable considering they had been apart for two centuries.
The epilogue, though. The epilogue was EVERYTHING. *doodling hearts and love across my Kindle *
Overall Impression: I really liked it
*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
