This novella really focuses on Faith and Chase, so we don't see TOO many of our Sweet favorites. That's okay though- the one scene we do see them (with Chase and the Wilder boys at the party) was enough for me!
I really enjoyed reading Faith and Chase's story. While they might not start off on the best of terms, things quickly heat up between them in the short time Chase is staying at the ranch. Chase embodies everything Faith hates- he is a wealthy, successful businessman coming out to the ranch for some 'pampering'. However, as a favor to a friend, she agrees to let him stay. I liked Faith a lot. She doesn't put up with any bull and is really her own woman. She has been burned before by love and that is why she is so abrupt and skeptical of Chase. She sees wealthy businessmen and assumes they are just like her ex. Not too dissuaded, Chase really teaches her the meaning of not judging a book by its cover. While Chase may have been living in New York City, he is no pampered city boy who doesn't know his way around a ranch. Having grown up in Texas himself, but having left due to painful family memories, he really surprises Faith with his laid back, genuine persona.
Chase is also a really great guy. Having had a bit of a health scare, his life has been totally turned upside down and it's not easy starting from scratch to find yourself and your purpose at this point in life. He likes Faith, but he is afraid to get in too deep with her because he's at such a crossroads in his life. She is such a strong personality though and he can't help but gravitate towards her and want to spend time with her.
I liked their romance. It was cute and sweet and gave me plenty of feels. With the addition of the Christmas spirit, it really was a perfect read for this time of year. Lots of kissing, sexy times, sweet getting to know you moments, and a HEA... Sweet Cowboy Christmas was definitely what I needed.
