Noel: A Blue Collar Christmas
Publication Date: December 23, 2015
Synopsis: E.R. nurse Noel Walker knows a thing or two about trauma, but when Officer Hunter Davis ends up as one of her patients, she might be the one in need of a gurney. Despite her attraction, Noel maintains a firm ‘no patients’ policy when it comes to dating, but as a man of the law, Hunter lives by a policy of his own: When he sets his sights on a target, he doesn’t give up until he slaps the cuffs on good and tight.
Noel is an ER nurse whose sole focus lately has been her job. In the ER she has some crazy nights and some really slow nights. Those nights are when she has time to think about how lonely her life has become. Her Christmases lately have been spent alone in her apartment downing her favorite Merlot. She never could have expected one quite night in the ER she would meet the man of her dreams.
Hunter is a cop who loves his job and lives for the adrenaline rush of catching the bad guys even when those bad guys land him in a hospital bed. Having been in this position many times before he know what to expect. This time fate surprised Hunter when he meets Noel a sweet and sexy ER. At first sight he is determined to make her break all her rules.
This story was a real holiday treat, it was steamy, sexy and fun to read. I am a huge JC Valentine fan I have read nearly all her books. This is another beautiful written tale from JC. Hunter is an alpha male hero with a sexy grin, piercing eyes and a take charge attitude. Noel is a woman resisting the chance at a possible relationship for fear of being hurt.
Hunter and Noel had chemistry to spare from the first moment they meet. After she shoots him down while he is her patient she never thought she would see him again. To her surprise they have a mutual friend and end up at the same Christmas/birthday party. The sparks fly immediately and when Hunter breaks down the walls Noel has put up around herself their attraction is undeniable and nothing can stop this couple from igniting. Their sex scene was fan yourself hot.
My only problem with the story was that I wish it was longer I loved this couple so much that I want to know what happens with them next. Since this is part of the Blue Collar Series maybe Noel and Hunter will pop up in another couples book and we can get an update on how they are doing.
If you have never read a JC Valentine book before this one is a great one to start with it will give you a taste of this amazing author and just like Noel and Hunter you will crave more.
