After catching her boyfriend cheating two weeks before Christmas, Brinn is seriously lacking in holiday spirit. So when she looks into the eyes of a last-minute shopper after closing on Christmas Eve, she’s sarcastic rather than sympathetic. But Brinn is ever the good girl and her conscience wins out. She offers the handsome stranger ten minutes to select a gift and ends up with a present of her own—a date. On Christmas Eve.
Davis hates Christmas. Especially this year, since a neighborhood heist liberated him of his hard-earned belongings and the few gifts he’d purchased. But the robbery led him to a cute store manager with a sense of humor, smokin’ body and no plans for the evening. Mistletoe might be in order after all.
Their Christmas Eve date is like gift-wrapped, sexy satisfaction. But the best gifts keep on giving, and one naughty night may not be enough—for either of them.
Why it Kicks Ass… by A.S.
If my Nook hadn’t run out of power, I would have stayed up all night to finish this book. Steamy sex, sweet romance and two of the most charming characters I’ve ever read. I loved the ebb and flow of this book, the instant connection between Brinn and Davis and the signature Karla Doyle humor. Davis is so freaking hot and Brinn is completely adorable. The book has a timeline and I found myself rooting for them to figure it out, work and their crap and get to the next level before it was too late. I wanted to jump into the pages and yell at them. In a very short time these two hooked me and I just wanted them to have their happily ever after.
If you’ve never read Karla Doyle, this is a great place to start. I LOVED this book. Don’t wait until next Christmas, this is a read all year round kind of love story. I laughed aloud and even cried a couple of times. Another wonderful story from a fabulous author. I highly recommend Gift Wrapped.
