What a fun, light read this was for me. In this story, we find Tessa Stoneman working with her former boyfriend, Damien Stanton, and their best friend, Nicholas Boone. The three of them work and own GameNerdz, a video game developing company. At one point, Tessa and Damien dated, but they eventually broke things off because they realized it wasn’t a lasting relationship. Secretly though, Tessa and Nick had a serious attraction going on since college, but never did anything about it since she was already dating Damien. Now, since both are single, it could be the perfect time to test the waters with each other. I really enjoyed this fun story and found myself quite entertained. I loved how Nick decided that this was the perfect time, since Tessa was leaving GameNerdz to open her own graphic design company in the new year, to start showing her just how much she’s meant to him over the years. He comes up with the idea of being her Secret Santa and gifting her the items that match the song “Santa Baby.” I thought it was so creative to come up with this idea as a story and it worked so well. The characters were so believable and I felt that I was watching everything unfold before me. I really wanted things to work out between Nick and Tessa and all I could do was keep my fingers crossed that now was the perfect timing to see if they could start something together. Overall, this was an enjoyable story for me and I look forward to reading more from this author.
Tessa Stoneman is starting her own graphic design company in the new year, but leaving her two friends/partners behind will be hard. Although she’s dated Damien in the past, they just didn’t have what it took to make their relationship last. Now Nick on the other hand, well, it seems Tessa never really got over that one kiss she shared with him in college. Now, since they’re both single, it seems like the perfect time to test what they have between them, if anything. Nick is afraid he’ll lose contact with Tessa once she starts her own company so he decides that he’ll be her Secret Santa and spoil her. He gifts her the items that match the song “Santa Baby” and hopes when he reveals his identity to her that she’ll be happy to see it was him behind all the gifts. How does Tessa react to her Secret Santa being Nick? Does Nick’s plan work and does he win her over?
Tessa Stoneman hasn’t been able to get long-time friend and business partner Nicholas Boone out of her head since they shared a single kiss in college. Even when she dated Nicholas’s best friend. Now that she’s giving up her position at GameNerdz to strike out on her own—and now that she’s single—maybe it’s the right time to see if there’s still something between them.
Nicholas knows once Tessa leaves the company she helped found, they might drift apart. Before she starts her own company in the new year, he wants to woo the woman he fell in love with during college. So he poses as her Secret Santa, gifts her with items from the song “Santa Baby,” and plans a big reveal at the company holiday party. But when his best friend wants to rekindle his romance with Tessa, will Nicholas lose his last chance?
