His Christmas Wish
Ever since he accidentally outed Santa as a fraud, guest news anchor Duke Rodriguez is getting his first taste of bad press. Worse yet, the former baseball star is striking out with sexy decorator Macy Cuomo. To prove he's no grinch, he offers to work for free during her busiest weekend. A vibrant, down-to-earth single mom, Macy makes Duke want to leave the limelight behind and focus on making all of her sensual fantasies come true.
Despite his festive faux pas, Macy has to admit there's a good reason Duke is every hot-blooded woman's secret crush—hers included. Behind the famously gorgeous physique is a smart, charismatic man who lights her up like a Christmas tree with just one sizzling kiss. Opposites definitely attract, but when celebrity drama comes calling, will their budding love survive the holiday season?
There are some holiday books that just stay with you, even when you read 20 books in a month! This is one of those! It’s cute, deliciously romantic but also feels real.
Duke makes a huge faux pas on national television and although he seems like a nice guy, he really regrets it when he learns the hot chick he’s trying to meet not only has kids but they also heard him. Macy thinks Duke is seriously hot but she isn’t one to just throw it all away because of some hot guy. She’s made her mistakes and she’s ready to work hard to undo them. Even if Duke is really, really cute.
These two are just hilarious together. The way they get together is also quite funny. Both Duke and Macy have some issues but not so many that they cannot be faced head on prior to the end of the book. Macy’s are all her own inner feelings and Duke has some issues with his past. One of which comes to haunt him while he’s just finally getting Macy on his side.
It’s 224 pages of pure magic. Definitely has a character arc but is really great for the season.
I want to write more but there is so much in this that I will wind up spoiling. Just trust me when I say this is a really great holiday read. You won’t want to put it down.
