 Hey everyone! Today I've got a review for Better Watch Out by Natalie Walters! She's one of my insta-buy authors, so I'm super excited to share this with you. Check out some info on the book below.


An accidental meet-cute, a case of mistaken identity, and a bucket-list of Christmas activities befitting a Hallmark movie make this holiday romantic adventure the perfect Christmas read.

Leave the candy canes, take the pepper spray!

Nothing screams Christmas like a week spent ice skating, visiting Santa, and sharing a kiss or two under the mistletoe. Frannie Frost has crafted the perfect bucket list of romantic activities to surprise her boyfriend in the most magical place at Christmas time—New York City. When he unexpectedly becomes her ex, her plans are derailed leaving her with a choice. Wallow in self-pity at Christmas time or take matters into her own hands.

Former NHL defenseman turned personal protection agent, Andrew Bishop, loves his job—when things go as planned—but Frannie Frost is definitely not part of the plan. Still, when her brother, the man who saved Andrew’s life last year, asks him to deliver his sister safely to the airport, he can’t say no.

The only problem? Frannie isn’t leaving. She’s determined to make the most of her trip by checking off a bucket list of cliché Christmas activities that would make even Santa’s elves jealous. Andrew’s content to let her go until he learns that Frannie’s been mistaken for his client and thrust into the midst of danger.

Better Watch Out is a sweet romantic holiday adventure that gives you all of laughs of a rom-com while adding a touch of suspense. Tropes you’re sure to love include the new girl in the city vibe, stranded at Christmas, under the mistletoe, forced proximity, and a touch of enemies to lovers. Enjoy this romantic adventure that’s sure to make your holidays merry and bright.

Okay, so I wasn't expecting the "meet-cute" to be quite THAT cute. Or funny. It was especially fun to see characters from the Harbored Secrets series again, and the storyline is super cute. This book has that classic Christmas Hallmark-y feel without being TOO Hallmark-y, if that makes sense. Walters does a stupendous job on detailing the Christmas wonderland Frannie explores through New York, and that thrill of Christmas wonder is just interwoven in each sentence. So sweet and fun! Just enough suspense without detracting from the sweeter rom-com side of the story, plus pacing that will keep you turning pages. I ended up staying up way too late to finish reading this one, and I think you will too! It's on my reread list for sure.
