When career-focused Shelby Martin returns to her small hometown in northern Michigan to take care of her mother, she is counting the days until she returns to New York City in time to celebrate Christmas...until she finds steamy comfort in the arms of her former high school crush, Ethan Bardenhagen. The former NHL bad boy is more than willing to keep Shelby hot on cold winter nights, but he's made it clear there's no strings attached.

Shelby can't forget Ethan broke her heart when she was a teenager, but the longer she spends enjoying the passion she finds in his arms, the more she knows she's fallen crazy in love. Ethan has already found his way home, but with Christmas just around the corner, will Shelby find true love or is this just a hot holiday fling?

Celebrate Me Home was a very fast and delightfully cute read about coming home again.                  

Shelby Martin comes home again to Michigan because her mom is sick and needs her. She doesn't want to be home, she would rather be in NYC at her job.She is very career drives and hasn't been home in years.  Life comes into prospective when her mom is diagnosed with cancer and Shelby is the only family both of them have. She takes a leave of absence from her job to take care of her mom. 

While home, Shelby runs back into her former crush, ex NHL star Ethan Bardenhagen. He is even more handsome now then he was in high school. Ethan has moved home and is looking for a simpler life. He is tired of traveling and the rich lifestyle. Now, if Ethan can convince Shelby that home is for her too, they could have a real go at a relationship.

This book was a very short read at 55 pages, but I loved it. It was a cute holiday and feel good story. Nothing better for the Christmas season.
