After reading ‘It Happened One Summer’ by this author which is one of my best reads this year, it’s no surprise that I jumped on this one especially when it’s a holiday themed story.
‘Window Shopping‘ is a really sweet and steamy romance story about how the charming Arden and grumpy Stella fall in love. As always, when a male protagonist knows what he wants and goes for it, I am sold out to him and Arden was everything and a bag of chips on top of it in that department. I loved their chemistry from the first day they met and how the author built up the romance until it peaked nicely. Apart from the romance angle, this story also carried some very relevant themes such as second chances, forgiveness, self confidence, self love and the need to stand up for yourself. These sub-themes wrapped up nicely with the entire story and made it really an exceptional read for me. To say the least, I loved it!
I highly recommend but watch out for the spicy sex scenes if that’s not your thing. Also, if you are triggered by stories about people in prison or toxic friendships/relationships, you may want to cautiously go into reading this one.
