Samantha Dixon is about to confess her most secret, romantic Christmas wish to Santa. Heck, what’s she got to lose with her disastrous romantic history? Like that player from her horrible blind date last week arranged by her mother. Only guess who’s Santa?
Rico del Toro loves women. So one bad date with the beautiful Samantha in a string of many, ahem, successful evenings is no big deal. But when a friendly favor playing Santa unexpectedly lands Samantha on his lap for a romantic confessional, he’s intrigued. He’s never heard a woman open her heart like that before.
But if this Santa wants a second chance, he’ll have to rethink his womanizing ways and convince her that he is the perfect package.

Mother knows best!!!
Thirty year old Samantha Dixon could not find Mr. Right. So, her mother steps in and arranges a date with her friend's son. Samantha is NOT happy about it! Rico del Toro, thirty-three, is happy dating women with no expectations. His mother is NOT! She arranges a date for Rico with friend's daughter. The date was a disaster! Through much trial and error, Rico fails at the dating game with Samantha. By the time he finally gets it will she be tired of giving him more chances to get it right?
That old saying "Mother knows best" is actually true! This is a lite, fun afternoon read. The beginning of the story was a little slow for me but then it picked up. I really enjoyed seeing Rico do all those crazy funny things to get to the woman he didn't realize he wanted. His sisters really had him going a little crazy. To go from being a "playa" to a man serious about a woman is quite the transformation. So funny too! Thank you Kylie Gilmore for such an entertaining book. I'm definitely looking forward to more from this talented author.
Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Fun for the Holiday Season
I received an ARC of Kissing Santa and am happy to report this is a really fun read for the holidays.
Rico knows his way around the bedroom. Until now his good looks and come-on lines have landed him in bed on the first date—second at the most. But now he's met Samantha and she's not interested in a "Player". He's done before he can even get started. But guess who falls into his lap while he's playing Santa? Low and behold it's Samantha, enlightening him on what she really wants for Christmas.
A fun, quick, and sexy Thanksgiving through Christmas read. I highly recommend!
Short. sweet and cute! When two meddling mothers set up a date for Samantha and Rico you can probably guess how badly things go. Samantha not wanting to be there was ready to not like him from the start but when she calls him out on his player ways he can't believe it. Determined to show her he can do romantic has these two facing off too many times to count but in the end he proves he really does do romantic!
This is a fun one that you don't want to miss. I listened to the audio version and really enjoyed not only the story but the narration. Definitely one I would recommend.
