What’s the actual last thing you’d ever want your executive assistant to see you doing the morning after you had hot, drunk, angry sex with her in a terrible hotel room? Dancing around your terrible hotel room to “Come and Get Your Love” like Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy—naked? Yeah. Me too.
And yet, here we are.
This isn’t even the most unprofessional thing that’s happened between us in the past couple of weeks.
The first was when I agreed to let her have Christmas Day off, but only if she goes with me to three family gatherings as my fake girlfriend.
The second was when she caught me belting out a Christmas song on stage in the awful hotel bar.
The third was the hot, drunk, angry sex that followed, but I do not regret it.
And she hasn’t even found out the real reason I need her by my side this holiday season.
I need to pull it together before I do the dumbest, most unprofessional thing of all—fall head over heels in love with the only assistant who’s lasted more than a month at the job and claims to hate me and my moods more than she hates eggnog.
And I’ve seen how much she hates eggnog.
It’s beginning to look like a holiday romance binge! It’s funny how I’ve never picked one up before now, but here I am starved for more Christmasy goodness. Something I discovered while reading this is that if it has punny chapter titles I’m probably going to be obsessed. Especially if they are holiday-themed puns. So yeah, this was a love at first pun kinda book. Also, may I say that the interactions between Declan and Maddie were just downright delightful? This romance deals with a boss and his super sassy assistant and their holiday contract to be ‘together’ for the holidays. Basically you’ll fall head over holly for this one if you enjoy things like:
-fake relationship & hate to love tropes
-drunk Christmas carols and bachelor party shenanigans
-lots of Irish brogue
