After a year of recovery, wounded war veteran Jonah Harrison comes home for Christmas. No longer the outgoing high school track star, he just wants to be left alone, away from well-meaning friends and neighbors. But when a blizzard strands him with Kami Jackson—the girl who once knew him best—he can’t hide anything from her, no matter how much he wants to.
Kami has a wounded heart of her own, though, and it might take a miracle—or at least two matchmaking dogs—for them to find the healing they both long for and the courage to reach for a chance at love.
Originally published as a short story in 2015, in A Timeless Romance: Under the Mistletoe Collection. Truth or Dare has been re-released as a novella with all new material that tells the rest of Jonah and Kami’s story.
I love this story! It’s one of my favorite novellas to re-read. There’s just something about how Jonah and Kami lift each other and have that foundation of friendship to build on. The chemistry is amazing, the banter is fun, and the overall theme of hope in adversity is one that leaves me with a smile on my face. I *love* that the author added more chapters for its release as a single title (originally it was published in A Timeless Romance Anthology: Under the Mistletoe Collection). It was so exciting to see their relationship progress past that first night and blossom with more experiences and challenges together.
I just finished listening to the audiobook and loved it! This author has a way of making the simple things in life engaging for the reader. Not that their lives were simple, but they work through their problems like adults and I really enjoyed this little book. Also, the narrator was fantastic.
