Kissing Santa by Kylie Gilmore

Samantha Dixon is about to confess her most secret, romantic Christmas wish to Santa. Heck, what’s she got to lose with her disastrous romantic history? Like that player from her horrible blind date last week arranged by her mother. Only guess who’s Santa?

Rico del Toro loves women. So one bad date with the beautiful Samantha in a string of many, ahem, successful evenings is no big deal. But when a friendly favor playing Santa unexpectedly lands Samantha on his lap for a romantic confessional, he’s intrigued. He’s never heard a woman open her heart like that before.

But if this Santa wants a second chance, he’ll have to rethink his womanizing ways and convince her that he is the perfect package.

Book Reviews

  • Fun story

    By bh313@hotmail
    Short. sweet and cute! When two meddling mothers set up a date for Samantha and Rico you can probably guess how badly things go. Samantha not wanting to be there was ready to not like him from the start but when she calls him out on his player ways he can't believe it. Determined to show her he can do romantic has these two facing off too many times to count but in the end he proves he really does do romantic! This is a fun one that you don't want to miss. I listened to the audio version and really enjoyed not only the story but the narration. Definitely one I would recommend.

    A short sweet Christmas story with a few bumps along the way.Enjoyed reading.
  • A Sweet Holiday Romance

    By dollsrus
    Samantha and Rico have different ideas about what they want and when they want it. Samantha is looking for a real commitment and Rico is looking for fun. When they are set up for a date by their families, it does not go very well. They may both be attracted but Samantha is not interested in being with a player. When she reveals more about herself to Rico accidentally, he begins to realize that he will need to make some changes to get to be with her. It really gets amusing as he tries to get advice on women from his sisters and movies and books. It does make you realize why men might have some trouble understanding just how to make women happy with the conflicting messages in the media. It is a short read and a very nice one for the holidays. I enjoyed spending time with them and their friends and family. There is lots of love and joy in the lives of those they love. I received a copy in return for a honest review.
  • Quick, Fun, Sexy, Hilarious, and Romantic

    I really enjoyed reading this book. Got a kick out of Rico's cluelessness even though Samantha was a little hard on him. I wonder how many guys really are like Rico with the cluelessness. So funny he turns to his sisters and their advice to him. Definitely recommend reading this book. I received this book free as an ARC for an honest review.
  • I LOVE THIS BOOK! It was well-written, funny, HOT, and emotional.

    I LOVE THIS BOOK! It was well-written, funny, HOT, and emotional. I will absolutely be reading more books by Kylie Gilmore! Kissing Santa started off unlike any other book I have read. I was hooked at the first sentence. From there, it just kept getting better! The humor throughout the book is great! It had a tone and feel sort of like “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” and I was laughing out loud more times than I can count. It wasn’t over-the-top corny or anything like that, but rather it highlighted the humor that can be gleaned from everyday conversations and situations. Samantha and Rico were so fun to read because they were so believable. She was no-nonsense on the outside and yet vulnerable underneath. He was almost completely clueless, and the things he did to educate himself about what a woman REALLY wants were priceless! While this book can be read as a stand-alone, it touches on other characters from past books, and if those books are anything like this one, then I may have found my new favorite series! The love scenes were VERY HOT, and one in particular was about more than just the physical, which I absolutely loved. I cannot say enough good things about this bo
  • Review: Clover Park #4: Kissing Santa

    By @LisaHines711
    Kissing Santa by Kylie Gilmore is the fourth book in her Clover Park series. It is closer to novella length and can be read as a standalone. Two overbearing mothers decide to set their single children up. It's not really an arranged marriage situation per-se. Just don't try to tell the moms that. Rico and Samantha each agree to go on one date with their mothers friends child. Child is the only word I can think of to use but they're both grown, hard-working adults approaching their thirties. Their first date is a disaster. Rico tries too hard and Samantha is bound and determined to dislike him. Rico finds himself in a situation where he decides to keep trying to win Samantha's attention and the hilarity just grows from there. Were there times I wanted to slap them both upside their heads? Absolutely! Did some of their actions and decisions seem ridiculous? You betcha! Was it funny? Uh, YEAH! A sweet, quick and quirky story for the holidays that will have you appreciating the small things your significant other does for you a little more.
  • Hot, sexy & hilarious!

    By Kclark19
    Any story that makes me laugh out loud is a keeper. And I laughed out loud in several places. This book had me from the very first page with Samantha’s well-meaning but meddling and match-making mother. It kept me with the smart, sexy writing and hot as hell hero and feisty heroine. I absolutely loved Rico—the player who thinks he’s God’s gift to women (which he is), until Samantha sets him straight. Very fun read.
  • Fun for the Holiday Season

    By RomanceKel
    I received an ARC of Kissing Santa and am happy to report this is a really fun read for the holidays. Rico knows his way around the bedroom. Until now his good looks and come-on lines have landed him in bed on the first date—second at the most. But now he's met Samantha and she's not interested in a "Player". He's done before he can even get started. But guess who falls into his lap while he's playing Santa? Low and behold it's Samantha, enlightening him on what she really wants for Christmas. A fun, quick, and sexy Thanksgiving through Christmas read. I highly recommend!
  • Mother knows best!!!

    By Cheryl SDS
    Thirty year old Samantha Dixon could not find Mr. Right. So, her mother steps in and arranges a date with her friend's son. Samantha is NOT happy about it! Rico del Toro, thirty-three, is happy dating women with no expectations. His mother is NOT! She arranges a date for Rico with friend's daughter. The date was a disaster! Through much trial and error, Rico fails at the dating game with Samantha. By the time he finally gets it will she be tired of giving him more chances to get it right? That old saying "Mother knows best" is actually true! This is a lite, fun afternoon read. The beginning of the story was a little slow for me but then it picked up. I really enjoyed seeing Rico do all those crazy funny things to get to the woman he didn't realize he wanted. His sisters really had him going a little crazy. To go from being a "playa" to a man serious about a woman is quite the transformation. So funny too! Thank you Kylie Gilmore for such an entertaining book. I'm definitely looking forward to more from this talented author. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
