Yes, this again is MY book, so naturally it's a five star rating from me. I'm bias that way. Anyway, I've always wanted to write a Christmas book. (I've tried in the past, but my novella ended up being changed to Valentine's Day. That's another story...) But now I FINALLY have a holiday themed romance! Yay. I like to think of it as the book version of a Hallmark Christmas Movie. So if you don't like Hallmark Christmas movies...beware. But if you do like them...enjoy! And Happy Holidays! (whatever time of the year you choose to read this book)...more
If you've read Fiancé by Fate, you'll remember Sabrina's friend Maddie. :)
And yes, I wrote this book so feel free to disregard the 5 star rating. LOL BIf you've read Fiancé by Fate, you'll remember Sabrina's friend Maddie. :)
And yes, I wrote this book so feel free to disregard the 5 star rating. LOL But I do love this story and hope you will too.
And, as is my style, here are some of my favorite/amusing lines from the book:
“Ah, like how Sharon Parker’s bra kind of found its way into your locker?” He leaned in, resting his elbows on the table. “Are you going to constantly bring these things up the entire time we’re dating?” “Sorry. Just using my prior knowledge to try and gauge what kind of fake boyfriend you’re going to make.” “Well, if your bitterness is any indication of the kind of fake girlfriend you’re going to be, I won’t hold my breath for you to fake put out.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "What are you all worked up about?" he asked warily. "This," she spat, motioning to the small space where she sat and he lay, "is what I call taking advantage." Glaring, she looked all flustered and—Lord-don't-put-him-in-more-hot-water-than-he-already-was—sexy with her blond curls bouncing with each word she sputtered. "And you can kindly remove your hand now, too." He glanced down and blinked. Then, with as much remorse as he could muster, he carefully slid his hand out from underneath her butt. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
He cocked his head and sent her a dimpled smile. "Where are you going in such a hurry?" Where am I going? "I don't know. Probably the library." "On a Friday night?" He made a show of horror. "What the heck are you going to do there?" "Oh, what most people do at their local library—three way orgy, summon up the dead, if there's time, jam up the copy machine with Canadian quarters. Same old same old."
"I do think you should change in private. You don't see me ripping off my clothes in front of you, now do you?" He gave a deep fake sigh. "Sadly, no."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "I know it must seem completely idiotic to you," Maddie said, hoping to coax at least a grunt from her, "hiring a date to your only sister's wedding and all." Louise slowly nodded. "I mean, who does such things nowadays, right? Women don't need men for anything. Well, they do need them for one thing. But that's all—and, really, debatable depending on your sexual orientation."

Loved the mainI liked this book and would have given it 5 stars, but I was sometimes confused by the whole spanking obsession with the other couple. Loved the main character, Holly, a woman struggling with weight issues. The hero grew on me. Logan was jerk but he really didn't KNOW he was a jerk until he got to know Holly better. His character really grew and for that, he won me over in the end. Good and sometimes fun romance that deals with body image, judging others on looks alone, and what real beauty is all about....more

Um, hi. Yes, I wrote this book, so of course I'm going to love it. But seriously. I love this book.
**clears throat** So I would now like to share some of my favorite lines:
“Well, look at you,” he said, pointing. She followed his finger and looked down but only saw a cream-colored turtleneck over a black wool skirt. “You’re hardworking, sensible, and obviously want to get married,” he continued. “Pretty much the antithesis of every woman I've dated.” “You mean because my IQ is larger than my bra size?” His lips thinned. “I mean because you have my father's respect.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For the first time since she'd known him, Jack actually looked uncomfortable. He cleared his throat a few times before answering. “Between you and me, I didn't get that promotion because the board feels my personal life may need a makeover. Of sorts. My father unfortunately agrees.” “Mm-hmm. Not to take sides, but when your recent breakup starts trending on Twitter, your personal life might need a little reevaluating.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “Careful,” he chided with a grin. “First you talk marriage and now you're telling me what to eat. You're sounding more and more like a real girlfriend every day. Just remember, this is still our first date, so keep your hands to yourself tonight. I'm not one of those guys.” ...more
