The Christmas Feast is easily the worst book I have read so far this year. The heroine who is supposed to be 29 acts more like a teenager still trying to figure out who they are. Jolie/Kat (depending on which character is talking to/about her) is a 29 year old who is going to turn over a new leaf and start being more like her "adult" 35 year old sister who is perfect.
Lance Estes is a man who is so caught up in the fact that he was orphaned at birth isn't much better. He works for the International Security Force and his partner was recently killed and the press is blaming Lance. Lance is also blaming himself. He only realizes that his partner's death wasn't his fault when some long-lost uncle tells him he's a "brave and honorable man."
How Jolie/Kat and Lance end up together is a complete mystery as both are so wrapped up in themselves that their magical love seems unreal. And not in an euphoric way.
This book was a wall-banger. It was gagtastic and there were plenty of eye-rolling moments to be read. Pass on this one unless you're insanely curious, otherwise it's a complete waste of time.
...just as Jolie was realizing she could use a few cooking lessons-the World's sexiest man broke in her family's manor but he was no burglar, he was her sister's surprise guest-and he could really heat up things in the kitchen!
