Description from Amazon.com:
With a rip louder than the “I dos,” Hayley’s hideous bile-yellow bridesmaid dress explodes. She’s always had enviable curves, but nearly naked wasn’t quite the look she’d been going for at her ex’s wedding.
She’s rushed from the altar under the best man’s designer tux jacket. Hayley’s expecting a blast of icy disapproval from sexy, sophisticated Niccolò Rossi—his usual reaction to anything she does. What she gets is a kiss that nearly melts what’s left of her polyester nightmare gown.
It’s impossible on a million levels. Exuberant engineer Hayley and buttoned-up lawyer Nico have never seen eye to eye—but skin to skin? Oh, mio… So when Nico shows up at her flat on Christmas Day to give her a fabulous gift—himself—Hayley’s delighted to do the unwrapping. But it’s just a holiday fling. By New Year’s Day, she’ll come back to her senses…unless Nico’s sensual skills tear away all her resolve.
Very cute, kind of funny, well written, hot and sexy and oozing holiday vibes, it’s the perfect read for your holiday cocoa and cookie break. This short novella has an embarrassed heroine and a save-the-day guy to die for. She is intellectually smart but suffers from poor choices in men. He’s the kind of guy we all want; smart, wealthy, sexy, handsome, has a slight foreign accent and is totally into the heroine. They have known each other through her ex-boyfriend but never really connected although Nico has been pining for her from the beginning. This is a novella, not a full length novel so it is easy to find an hour or so to down this scrumptious bite.
