Reviews Luke

  • ♡Tonya♡
    I adore a CP Smith hero. She knows alpha, and she writes it well. This is sweet touching story of two people, both alone, being there for each other when they needed it most. Luke was a loner and broody after experiencing a devastating loss. He had tremendous guilt on his shoulders and didn't feel he deserved any measure of happiness. When he first sees Anna, it just adds to his bad mood because he thinks she is unattainable. A broken furnace bri...

    My first ever C. P. Smith book and I loved it! It's a beautiful christmas story.The story is about Luke and Anna.They both had lost someone they loved (family members) and there's guilt and grieving. They were lonely and they met at the right time. They healed each other and learned to forgive and to move forward.It was short but I felt so much emotions with these two. They deserved their happy ever after. It also has a lovely epilogue. (view spo...

    5 "It's Like Destiny" Stars! Quick little Christmas novella that will pull at your heart strings, believe in destiny, Christmas miracles, and the power of love at first sight. This novella is less than 100 pages so I'm not going to say to much, but, I will say, this is one of those feel good reads that will have you sighing in contentment after reading the small (but perfect) epilogue. I love C.P. Smith's alpha hero's and enduring heroines, Luke ...

    Both Luke and Anna have a hard Christmas until destiny stepped in. It was a good short Christmas read
  • Leonor
    This was just ok. At least I got an epilogue. ~Celibate hero and heroine.~Some OM drama.~Safe.What I didn't like so much was the heroine, after her brother was almost on his deathbed, she slept with the hero, I guess her priorities are very different from mine because I wouldn't have sex with someone while my brother is almost dying. Lol Yes I know it's fiction and all. I also think she kinda acted a bit pathetic. Now this is just my opinion.

    Super cute short Christmas read!!🎄
  • Sarah
    This is such a fantastic novella, and perfect for Christmas. I have read and loved, every single thing CP Smith has written, in my eyes she can do no wrong, and she has proven that once again, with this gorgeous short story that shows the power of looking at things from a different perspective, when you have spent so long only thinking one way.Luke Deacon Knight (fantastic name) has become a complete Scrooge since his nephew died 4 years prior, a...
  • Kelly
    CP Smith is the expert of writing Alpha males and the quirky yet lovable women who bring them to their knees. She is the only author that makes me fall in love with Love over and over again. It's always in the journey, that's not always pretty and challenging more often than not. It's in the eyes where the characters hearts shine through even after a tragedy.This story pulled at my heartstrings and I'm sure it will pull at yours too. Miracles hap...

    Are you looking for a short, swoony, easy-to-read Christmas story that's heartwarming and fun and has a positive message? Then you want to get Luke!!!Luke has a very good (heartbreaking) reason for being a Scrooge. But when he collides with Anna, his walls start to crumble... and quickly! Anna is definitely his angel and helps light the path he needs to let go of the past and lead them to a treasured future together. For this being a short story,...
  • Carrie
    Wonderful quick Christmas read! Luke & Anna have a fun story that still tugs at your heart. Watching this "Scrooge" regain his heart & faith while falling in love was a sweet ride. : )
  • Alina
    Super cute read, nice break between emotional books 👏
  • Sharing
    Such a beautiful and heartwarming story! After a tragedy in Luke's life, he shuts down and shuts out everyone around him, until Anna crashes into his life. Can she help Luke see life differently through her faith? This was the last story I read in this series, and I loved each one of them. Most of them was my first time reading something from that author. Each of these authors are definitely on my radar now.
  • Joanne
    I adore this authors work. Her books instantly get me hooked. From the first page to the last I can’t put them down. This short novella was the same. Made me cry and swoon all through. A real Alpha this guy Luke. Loved his name. Such a fab combination of names to pick together. Loved who they represent too. Highly recommended this book and compilation of authors.
  • Boricuagal
    The only thing that would make this better is if it were a full length novel. For a novella though, it packed a punch. This author always puts so much emotions into her writing that you feel like you're living it yourself, and this one doesn't disappoint.

  • Sheri
    This was a cute holiday novella. I love C.P. Smith and she can write an alpha like nobody's business. I honestly wish this story was a little longer, but I really enjoyed it. Read it in about 45 minutes, to give you an idea of how quick it is:)

The guilt he carries led him to push everyone away. That is until Anna, the image of an angel crashes, literally, into his truck.Anna is coming back home after getting her degree. It’ll be the first time without any of her parents...
  • Book Snob Sue
    4.5 heart tugging stars. The entire book had me on the verge of tears or in tears. Such a great book, but I don’t like my heart to hurt when reading a book...I’m sensitive on somethings. There was a tragedy that was told in the first chapter and I just couldn’t get over it. But you have to be a great writer to get that type of emotion from your readers. Was Luke a scrooge, I don’t personally think so, he was a sweet with a beautiful soul ...
  • Karen Hrdlicka
    This short read brings front and center the real meaning of Christmas, family. The gifts that Luke and Anna give each other are nothing that can be bought in a store. Both characters have lost people near and dear to them and struggle through the holidays alone for the most part. Anna has her brother but when a crisis looms, Luke; someone she's only met briefly and in less than ideal circumstances, steps up to the plate and supports her. No one d...

    I absolutely adore everything that CP Smith writes (I would read her grocery list if she’d let me) and this short romantic holiday story has been a favorite of mine so far! Lucas Deacon Knight.. I mean come on.. with a name like that how can he not be a broody alpha hero?! I fell in love with him from the start. Possessive, protective, sweet and a little damaged.. he was perfect. Anna Stubs was so freaking sweet. I loved her inner thoughts and ...
  • Teri
    My only complaint is the story is much too short!! I love the theme of faith and healing. It was passionate without being over the top. Great story and characters I want more of. Even has a little twist with some humor thrown in. Good stuff!!This is part of a collaborated collection by ten authors themed around a scrooged Christmas. I lucked out and got a couple of them but not all. The ones I did get are wonderful. . . but too dang short!
  • Jeni
    Very first CP Smith book that I wasn't fond of. Too much religion in this one, and even though I know it's a short story I didn't really care for any of the characters involved because it felt like we barely even got the surface of the characters. Oh well - I'm still on pins and needles waiting for the next book!
  • Tonya Lucas
    This was such a heart felt story of struggles with moving on after tragedy, forgiveness, and accepting God back into your life. Luke and Anna were two people lost and needed that special someone. Who knew a fender bender would be just the perfect collision.CP Smith keeps giving me perfect love stories I truly love.
