Taylor Barnes thinks she has her life lined up. She pours everything into her work, so her relationship with her family has slipped a bit, but she is going to be partner this year. When she catches that she missed RSVPing No to her cousins wedding she finds that she can’t back out and not go. Then she finds that she needs a date and with a slip of the tongue needs a date to the office holiday part too. Now, her job and her family expect her to have a Significant Other that doesn’t actually exist.
So, she does what every heroine does, hires a boyfriend thinking that she can keep it all business. Hunter, with the name Tom Maguire, takes the job. They spend the month of December feeling each other out and each working towards what they think their goal is.
This is the type of story that you just sigh at the end of. Yes, you probably saw the ending coming. But, it is worth reading to get there. Hunter and Taylor are developed characters that you do want to see how they get there and learn more about. I would give this book 4 stars. Moments were kind of like ok I know what is going to happen, but it kept you still interested that you wanted to keep reading and see how it all happened. It was a light fun nice holiday read that if you aren’t a new Mom should be the right length to not take you too long, as a new Mom well that is another story.
I was sent a copy of this book by Erin, but the review and thoughts are my own.
