I’m standing alone in front of the famous Vivant department store, when a charming man named Aiden asks my opinion of the décor.
It’s a tragedy in tinsel, I say, unable to lie.
He asks for a better idea with a twinkle in his eye.
Did I know he owned the place? No. He put me on the spot.
Now I’m working for that man, trying to ignore that he’s hot.
But as a down on her luck girl with a difficult past, I know an opportunity when I see one—and I have to make it last.
I’ll put my heart and soul into dressing his holiday windows.
I’ll work without stopping. And when we lose the battle with temptation, I’ll try and remember I’m just window shopping.
Our main characters Stella and Aiden trapped me in their spell and I didn’t want to be let loose. From their first meeting on the street, I couldn’t wait to see they would come together. They were opposites but that attraction was there. Aiden wears Christmas bowties and is always pleasant while Stella is fresh out of jail and still trying to find her footing in society again. What do they have in common? The front window at Vivant.
“You’ve given me a weird bow tie kink and nothing else is appealing now. It’s terrible.”
It was more than the sexual chemistry that made this couple work. Even though they were different, they understood things about each other. She saw through his always positive persona that he always kept and he saw her vulnerability that she tried to hide. They were there for each other and trusted each other. The amount of care and trust that Aiden had in Stella was heartwarming. He didn’t see her as just a former criminal.
All in all, I adored this Christmas romance so much! Definitely pick this up when it releases next month.
