He will pay.
I will make his Christmas hell and be the one waving him goodbye with my middle finger as he packs his bags and rolls out.
This roof isn’t big enough for the two of us.
Heck, neither is this town.
Or this country. Maybe the entire world.
Maybe the universe.
He packs an ego to match his size. His swagger is sexy as all hell. He smells like pine soap and new money… crisp. Sharp. Hungry.
My palms smack the tiled shower walls. Why? Why do I always want the bad ones? The ones who treat me like dirt and walk away without a second thought?
Not this time.
I won’t let it happen. If only I could find a way to get the man out of my damn head. If I don’t I’m totally scrooged.
** spoiler alert ** This book! I couldn’t put it down. I loved the characters, I loved the story.
It’s a story with a backstory. Darren Prescott, CEO and millionaire goes back home to face demons of his past. He meets sassy Shiloh, who is looking for love at Christmas. Both characters growing up looking for love of family, end up crossing paths. They hate each other, but who doesn’t love a good enemies-to-lovers trope, it’s one of my favourites.
Before Dare returns home for Christmas, he meets a young girl, ten years old, in the system and reminds him of himself. Remembering his past, he makes a few calls and decides to do at least one good deed for Christmas and offers to foster her.
Shiloh and Dare, work hard to stay out of each other’s way, but Dare’s friends know better and helps fate along. Before long, their Christmas dreams come true. Of course not without a few bumps and misunderstandings.
This story really captured the meaning of Christmas. Dare even though he is a millionaire CEO now, does not forget his upbringing and the people who helped him get where he is now. He pays it forward by becoming a foster parent for Freddie, who absolutely adores him, even before she lives with him. The story is about hope, love and family and this is all we need at Christmas time.
