'Tis the night before Christmas Eve and Holly wishes she hadn't volunteered to work the night shift. The weather is frightful and getting worse by the minute, and the same old annoying carols are blasting from the bookstore's speakers. But Holly's holiday spirit returns when the store's sexy new assistant manager arrives to keep her company. He has muscled arms, baby blue eyes, and a sweet pair of lips she wouldn't mind meeting under the mistletoe.
Sam is glad the snow is keeping away customers-it gives him a chance to get close to his favorite employee. Holly has always been a mystery to Sam, like a beautiful present he'd love to unwrap. When they're trapped by a full-blown blizzard, Holly breaks into the Christmas cookie display. Sam busts out a bottle of vodka from the boss's office. Soon the two are trading heated kisses-as well as secrets neither has ever felt safe enough to tell before. What started out as one naughty night together turns into something so much more.
My Quickie Review:
This is the perfect little holiday novella to read for Christmas. It takes place on the 23rd of December when the hero and heroine get snowed in during a blizzard and have to spend the night in the bookstore. Show me a romance reader who doesn't have this as their fantasy.
The two characters have been working together and circling one another for months, so there's not that build up needed between them, although it's quickly obvious that both of them have misjudged the other. Both characters have a history of family drama, but I liked that one of them was able to put the "drama" into perspective for the other. That was such a great "life lesson" to the story that I loved.
This is one of those style books that I love to read during the holidays. There were moments where I smiled while reading, but the characters had enough angst to make them deeper and makes you connect to them. It was a fun little read and I enjoyed it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
