Review for One Christmas by Victoria J. Best


Title: One Christmas
Author: Victoria J. Best
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 4, 2020
Cover Design: Dark City Designs

I’m used to doing things on my own. I moved to New York City to pursue a career and left everyone I knew back home in New Jersey. Just when I think I’m getting the hang of things, an old fling shows up and won’t leave me alone. Swallowing my pride, I call on a sexy cop from back home to help keep me safe. Can I finally admit that being alone isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and let Damian in for just one Christmas or will the new year be just as lonely as the last?

My Thoughts…. 

 A fling that will not let go leads to a sexy cop saving the day.    Damian shows up at just the right time to offer Jess the safety and support she needs.    When a fling just will not go away Jess tries to handle it on her own but it quickly escalates and she needs help.   That is where Damian, the cop, steps in.   At first it is just as acquaintances then it turns into friends with feelings which then leads to much more. 

One Christmas is a quick read.   The storylines moves quickly, sometimes too quickly.   The characters are relatable and fun.   The locations are familiar, New York City and then Jess and Damian’s hometown.   I enjoyed the hometown setting most with the families becoming part of the story and the pace being much slower and relaxed.       

I loved how patient Damian was while pursuing Jess.   He realized that her life was in upheaval right now and that he had to not push too hard or he would never get his chance with her.   Yet, he never let her go.   He wooed her.   He dated her.   He showed her that together everything was possible. Jess pushed him away, pulled him close, and sent all sorts of mixed signals but Damian never gave up.   He gave her space, crowded her, and took care of her.   He showed her that he was Mr. Right for her.      

If you are looking for a fun and easy story, One Christmas is perfect for you.


Victoria J. Best writes contemporary romance with a sexy twist. She lives on the east coast with her husband, two kids, and a very pampered Yorkie. 
When she’s not writing, she’s reading, baking or crafting—probably in that order.
