Stocking Full of Cole by Brynn Paulin

Tamah Jones and Cole Greenwood's book

Stocking Full of Cole 

By Brynn Paulin

Book Blurb: When Tamah Jones came home for the holidays, the last thing she expected was to learn that Cole Greenwood, a man eleven years her junior, wants her and has for years.
For Cole, Tamah has always been unattainable. Now, however, he’s ready to make a move and prove he’s the one for her. He’s ready to give everything, just to be hers, but the two must overcome geography, age difference and her overbearing family before being together can be more than a distant Christmas dream.

Provided a review copy by publisher for a honest review

Stocking Full of Cole is a sweet story with erotic elements. Brynn Paulin has wrote some very steamy erotic books in the past so this one is quite tame in comparison. 

The real spin on Stocking Full of Cole is that since Tamah is eleven years older, she used to babysit Cole. He has always had a crush on her and over the years, he has loved her from afar. Now that he is twenty three and well established, Cole is going to make his move. As luck would have it, Tamah is single. 

I quite liked the fact that she was older. I really don't think age should play to heavily on a romance as long as it is legal and they are in love. There were times where I felt that Cole was actually more mature than Tamah so clearly in this situation, age should not have mattered. 

The intimate scenes were well written and full of romance. With the  added bonus of having Christmas time for the setting, there was a lot of opportunity for romance. I loved the horse drawn sled ride and the Christmas stocking present. It was all very warm and moving. If you can look past the bad cover, you'll enjoy the story.
