Better Watch Out by Natalie Walters: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

An accidental meet-cute, a case of mistaken identity, and a bucket-list of Christmas activities befitting a Hallmark movie make this holiday romantic adventure the perfect Christmas read.

Leave the candy canes, take the pepper spray!

Nothing screams Christmas like a week spent ice skating, visiting Santa, and sharing a kiss or two under the mistletoe. Frannie Frost has crafted the perfect bucket list of romantic activities to surprise her boyfriend in the most magical place at Christmas time—New York City. When he unexpectedly becomes her ex, her plans are derailed leaving her with a choice. Wallow in self-pity at Christmas time or take matters into her own hands.

Former NHL defenseman turned personal protection agent, Andrew Bishop, loves his job—when things go as planned—but Frannie Frost is definitely not part of the plan. Still, when her brother, the man who saved Andrew’s life last year, asks him to deliver his sister safely to the airport, he can’t say no.

The only problem? Frannie isn’t leaving. She’s determined to make the most of her trip by checking off a bucket list of cliché Christmas activities that would make even Santa’s elves jealous. Andrew’s content to let her go until he learns that Frannie’s been mistaken for his client and thrust into the midst of danger.

Better Watch Out is a sweet romantic holiday adventure that gives you all of laughs of a rom-com while adding a touch of suspense. Tropes you’re sure to love include the new girl in the city vibe, stranded at Christmas, under the mistletoe, forced proximity, and a touch of enemies to lovers. Enjoy this romantic adventure that’s sure to make your holidays merry and bright.

If you are looking for a delightful holiday read, Better Watch Out is it! 

This was such a fun read! I love a holiday romance, and this had everything that I love about them... a great setting (New York at Christmastime), all the traditions and holiday activities, so many holiday references, laugh out loud moments and of course, a sweet romance story. On top of all the holiday goodness, we get a good dose of action and suspense as well... and I absolutely loved everything about it. I've read several other holiday suspense reads that are still very much high in suspense and the weightiness that can come with that, but just happen to take place during the holidays... but this one definitely felt different to me. The humor, romance and holiday cheer were so perfectly balanced with those suspenseful moments to keep it feeling more like the lighter holiday reads that I adore with just the right amount of suspense mixed in. 

Frannie and Andrew were such fantastic characters, and I couldn't help but love them together. If you love holiday romances and suspense, this is definitely one to add to your TBR this holiday season!
