Under the Mistletoe

I liked Under the Mistletoe. There are likable characters, a fun story and steamy dialogue. Not to mention it was written by a favorite author of mine.

What kept me from giving this story a higher review? As mentioned, I enjoyed the story and it was a good read but did not come across as sincere or believable. I think I could see the main characters more as friends than lovers. There were awkward situations and they came across as uncomfortable and confused in what to do next. For that reason I gave it a three and a half. Not because it was a bad story but for the lack of chemistry.

Other than that, I found it to be a feel good holiday romance. It left me with a smile. I am sure it will brighten any readers day and touch their heart as well. I recommend it.

A red-hot festive fling!  

Two weeks of no-strings naughtiness. That's all wealthy businessman Will Spalding wants for Christmas. That's all he ever wants from a relationship.

Hooking up with a handsome stranger is exactly what event planner Penny Devlin needs to put her obnoxious ex out of her mind forever. In fact, Will may just be the best Christmas present she's ever given herself! But as the holidays work their magic, Penny realizes Will has found a place in her heart, not just her bed. How can she carry on, knowing he's determined to walk away when their two weeks are up?
