Should've Been You by Nicole McLaughlin

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Swerve
Release Date: January 30, 2018

Sisters Becca and Hannah have always been close. Despite all, Becca has always harbored a crush on their neighbor Jase Beckford. She keeps it hidden because Jase and Hannah just have always seemed to be meant for each other.

When Becca's dream Christmas proposal is anything but, she heads back home for the holidays. There, a steamy encounter with Jase has her questioning many things. One of the most important is if there is a chance for her to finally have her chance with Jase.

Jase has always had a crush on Becca. After learning she despised him, he's remained close to the family and been a very good friend to Hannah. Deep down, it's Becca he's always wanted. Could a Christmas miracle be in store for the pair?

Strengths and Weaknesses

Overall, this is a charming romance. It's clear that it's part of a series, though I never felt that it couldn't stand alone. You could tell, however, that past romances were at play as hints of other "Man Enough" couples were laid out with one gathering.

The story is short and goes by fast. I loved the chemistry. I also loved that Hannah had to own up to her past bitchiness. Teen or not, that's not an excuse for the lies she told.

This was the perfect book for bedtime. I could keep reading, get the story in one session, and go to sleep with a case of the warm and fuzzies.

RTR's Bottom Line

Short, sweet, and swoon-worthy! That sums up Should've Been You.
