Holly Edgemont used to love celebrating Christmas, that is, until her whole world was turned upside down by an unexpected divorce from her college sweetheart Brant. This year, not only is she divorced, but the kids are going out of state with her ex Brant, leaving her utterly alone. Holly’s party-girl friend Sloane tries to break her out of her frump by dragging her along to holiday parties where Holly meets cute and available Chris. But when Holly realizes that she still has feelings for Brant, she has a decision to make: Learn to trust her long time love who broke her heart, or move on for good.
Brant Edgemont is a divorced father of three, and hopelessly in love with his ex-wife, Holly. He made the biggest mistake of his life walking out two years ago. Despite his pleas to reconnect, Holly still resists him. Is it too late to rekindle their love? Or will Holly move on for good, leaving Brant himself heartbroken and alone?
Down To You is not just a romantic love story. It is a story of familial love, friendship, betrayal, redemption, and the magic that can happen at Christmas time when friends and family join together.
Review by Venture
Holly is depressed about the holidays coming. Her best friend Sloane is trying to convince her to go out and party. Holly reminds her that she has three kids to take care of. Sloane reminds her that her exhusband Brant will have the kids for Christmas. Then she plans to drag her out to every party. That just depresses her even more.
Brant is desperate. He made a huge mistake and wants his wife back. His friends, can’t believe she is still single. He knows that Holly wouldn’t have to try to find someone to replace him. He is just hoping that she still loves him. She won’t even listen to why he did what he did. She is being so stubborn but he is hoping to change that.
Sloane and Holly hit the town to party and have a good time. They run into Luke and Chris who are good friends with Brant. Everything is great until while Chris and Holly are dancing he tries to kiss her. Chris is a good-looking guy who has had a crush on her since college. Holly doesn’t know what to do.
I understand that people act stupid while angry. However, I found Holly’s attitude severely annoying. I can understand being hurt and upset with her husband. Not even listening to the why or what happened before divorcing her husband….Seriously??? These are wedding vows. This is the love of your life. I don’t understand it or her. Once she finally finds out then what….I think she caused herself more pain than she needed and hurt her family in the process. Brant needed a smack to the head but not to be divorced and cut out of her life. It was well written with only a couple of typos. I give this book 3.5 books.
