Regan Case wouldn’t know the right side of the tracks if they ran her out of town. She’s lived hard since she ran away at sixteen, but eight years later, an accident has terrified her into pulling her life together. And that means finally going home for Christmas.
Taking her return one step at a time, she ends up on the doorstep of her sister’s best friend, Felix NicksonThe man indebted to her after she jammed ten grand down in trousers in high school and enabled him to escape his own demons. Felix agrees to let her stay, but doesn’t count on the chemistry that burns hot between them.
As they get into the Christmas spirit, he watches Regan’s shadows fade away and discovers that beneath her careless attitude, she is by far the bravest woman he’s ever met. He falls for her, fast and hard, but she fears she doesn’t deserve such a good man. A black sheep cannot change her colors.
Can Felix forgive her past or would asking for his love be one too many miracles this Christmas?

Regan Case was an orphan along with her sister when they were fostered by a family, although things would never be simple for the Case Sisters especially Regan. So, when she corners Felix Nickson her sister's best friend, she had a plan in mind, one that would change not only her life but her sister's and Felix's although whether it was for the best or worse they had yet to find out. 
Fast forward eight years, Regan shows up at Felix's door at Christmas needing a place to stay for a few days, Felix agrees as she did help him in the past but only if she promised to meet her sister, the sister she had not seen in eight years, the same one who she broke their heart when she left. 
Felix Nickson worked hard to get to this point in his life, although the money that Regan gave him eight years ago did help a lot even if he felt bad for taking it. Although at the time he was desperate for a better life away from his father and Regan helped him on the track to who he is today. 
Although Regan's life isn't what she thought it would be, after a very close call she decided to face her fears and find someone she knew someone who would not ask to many questions, but she was wrong as Felix may not ask many questions but he makes her feel things she never thought she could feel and she is scared as she is hiding something that could destroy their relationship and take her back to a place where she worked so hard to come from.
You For Christmas is a bitter-sweet story about running away from the past, falling into the present and trying to battle your way to the future. With its sadness, happiness and Christmas themes it is a lovely read that will make you stop and think about things life throws at you and how you handle them. 

Emotional, Beautiful and Hopeful. 

Another day, another book,
