by May Archer narrator Michael Pauley
One night, in Vegas, I gave him my heart. One day later, he broke it.
Look, I’ve never claimed to be a nice guy. I don’t do pretty words, I don’t give polite smiles, and I refuse to be sucked into the sappy bucket of sentimentality that is Christmas in small-town O’Leary. Smiling neighbors, overly decorated trees, a town parade, a Santa contest? Ho ho no. I do shifts as a firefighter, and I go home alone.
I fell into the trap once – that stupid night in Vegas – of believing there was more out there for me. I took a chance on a guy with magical green eyes and a gorgeous smile. The next day, Liam McKnight was gone. He took my heart with him, and left his wedding ring behind.
Except, now, my once-upon-a-time husband has reappeared with a kid in tow, and there are carols, lights, and cookies everywhere I turn. And worst of all, the spark between us burns brighter than ever because whatever happened in Vegas definitely didn’t stay there.
Liam came to town looking for an ending, but what’s building between us feels an awful lot like a beginning. Too bad it’s going to take more than a dozen interfering O’Learians to convince me to take a second chance on heartache, on love…and on us.
Please note: While The Night is very much Liam and Gideon’s story, characters from past books do make an appearance, and you’ll enjoy the book exponentially more if this isn’t your first trip to O’Leary.

MMy Thoughts and Review:
Magic is Never Losing Faith in Hope!✨⛄✨
Liam, Gideon, & Princess Hazel
So what happens when, what/ who happened in Vegas, left you in Vegas only to turn up in your town years later with a kid in tow, calling him, “daddy?” If you’re thinking May Archer just tossed an M/preg into the middle of her O’Leary Series, well you’d be wrong. But, that’s all that’s getting said on that. Maybe…
I have to be 100% honest and say, as an extreme introvert, I would rather be whipped with a cat-o-nine-tails til I passed out than be subjected to so many people in my house, in my business, and talking to me all the time. But goddess I love reading about it in series like this.
O’Learians are one giant family, (figuratively speaking, of course) and they are about to meet Liam, who has come to the town to clear up some unfinished business and his daughter, the mighty and all powerful, Hazel Grace. Once these townspeople get wind of who Liam and Hazel are, and why they’ve come to town, they have to do what nature dictates…THEY MUST INTERFERE!😂
This is so much fun and I enjoyed Michael Pauley (as always), as he brought the characters, the town, and thus the book to life with his deep soothing caramel covered chocolatey voice. Don’t judge.😋
While this is most definitely a second chance romance, it is also a story of magic and hope, and about one little girl’s belief in the unbelievable.
While set around the Holiday season, this is one that can be read anytime you need a good dose of squishy feels, and laughter. All the snarky one-liners, creative “fa-la-la-ing” Christmas expletives (for the sake of innocent ears), Santa hats, cozy kittens, cookies, icing, ugly Santa bedding, and one very wise and precocious princess keep you smiling, giggling, and believing til The very end.
