Sunny Shelly’s Review: Shaking The Sleigh, by Delancey Stewart


Title: Shaking the Sleigh
Author: Delancey Stewart
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 25, 2019
I’ll just admit it right up front—I don’t love the holidays.
In fact, Christmas makes me downright cranky.
Call me the Grinch if you must, but if your dad chose that day to
decide he was wrong about that whole wanting a family thing, you’d grow up
miffed about mistletoe too. Every candy cane, ugly sweater, and falalalala
reminds me of the worst day of my life.
So when my uncle—a bigwig network executive—gives me one last shot to
salvage my disastrous TV production career on a show called Holiday
, I’ve got no choice but to suck it up, head to the small town of
Singletree, and fake festive.
The problem? 
Callan Whitewood. The sexy, sullen former pro-soccer player might be
the one person on earth who hates the holidays more than I do. After a
devastating injury ended his career, he’s left with a limp, no idea what to do
with his future, and a cheerless attitude worthy of Ebenezer Scrooge. But I’ve
got a TIME LIMIT to convince the gorgeous grump to allow his home to be
featured as the pinnacle of the Christmas episode of the show that’s going to
save my career.
That is, if I can keep my hands off him… but I’m having a bit of
trouble sticking to the task. 
SHAKING THE SLEIGH is a standalone holiday romantic comedy with a
satisfying happily ever after, plenty of festive chuckles,
some sexy times and a few chinchillas. Maybe a cat. (And
there might be a wombat because wombats really do fit into almost any story.)

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

The blurb for Shaking The Sleigh pretty much sums up everything about this book. It’s a quirky, funny Christmas story with a cranky athlete and a heroine who hates Christmas as much as he does.

Callan is bitter and lives a lonely life. He’s pushed away just about everyone, but when April comes barreling into his life, she changes it for the better. What I loved is that both of them hated Christmas. This isn’t a “I love the magic of Christmas!” story. Both Callan and April help scratch an itch for the other, and it’s a warmhearted story as they begin to open up, feel, and fall.

Sexy, sweet and silly, Shaking The Sleigh is a perfect Christmas time romance! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
