How can you resist a man who is not afraid of commitment? He had been in love with Samantha for a whole lot of years, but did not make a move until someone else got to her first. Now, she’s once again single. She had broken up with her fiancé, she’s back in town – and he’d do everything to show her how much he cares and it might just make her stay in their little town. He has just a week to convince Sam that they were destined for each other: so he woos her: he dined her, dated her, and kissed her until he found out that she accepted the job half-way across the country. He might just lose her again.
Samantha is the next Grinch. How can she feel the Christmas spirit when her fiancé left her after cheating on her for a very long time, she doesn’t have her condo anymore and she’s about to lose her job – what’s to celebrate? She didn’t want to join the town’s festivities and would just love to stay at home and find comfort in her bed. But seeing her old childhood friend Jack, who was way hotter than she had last seen him, made her rethink her decision. She plans on seducing him, engage on some holiday fling with her childhood fantasy and perhaps it will help her get back her Christmas spirit.
I enjoyed reading this short-holiday novella. Jack is a sweetheart, unlike other man, he had waited for Samantha for so long, and is now grabbing his chance to finally make her his – forever, that is. He didn’t let her sulk, instead urge her to go out with him and enjoy the town activities. Soon, Sam was enjoying herself and her cheating fiancé and all other worries were put aside. They were meant to be together, they were good friends, and even their families are friends. Samantha was too blind to see it, and had almost lost it if she hasn’t woken up from her trance and finally realize that this guy loves her and wanted to be with her.
I always find it a little bit weird, but at the same time totally adorable for a guy to show some emotions, be the one to WANT commitment, and chase the girl who doesn’t. Couple it with the Christmas season, some meddling folks, intense Christmas competition, and some steamy romance – it’s one perfect holiday read.
