Publisher Description


A sizzling, standalone, feel-good opposites attract holiday romance from Tessa Bailey, #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Summer- now in a beautiful new package!

Two weeks before Christmas and all through Manhattan, shop windows are decorated in red and green satin. Stella's standing alone outside a famous department store, when a charming man asks her opinion on the décor.

It's a tragedy in tinsel, she says, unable to lie. Then he asks for a better idea, with a twinkle in his eye. She didn't know he owned the place, when he put her on the spot, and now she's working for that man, trying to ignore that he's hot.

But as a down-on-her-luck girl with a difficult past, Stella knows how to make a good opportunity last. So she gives it her all, working without stopping. Trying to resist temptation, because she's just window shopping.

Slightly Smiling Face“This book was simply wholesome and comforting. We follow Stella Schmidt and Aiden Cook. Stella is a newly released ex-con who is trying to navigate through the norms of society after four years. We also have Aiden who is a die hard people pleaser because his father and his paternal Grandmother never accepted him as a child but he runs Viviant, an essential Christmas Shop, that father and Grandmother are board members in. With the aspirations of Stella and the gravitating presence of the Viviant, we watch as their story goes from grumpy to the intimate matching robes couple that they become. Some lines and references were cringy, but in a laughable way. The banter is top tier also. Aiden Cook is a wonderful book boyfriend🥰”

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“First time reading from this author and loved every minute of it! I enjoyed reading about how an ex-convict strives to make positive changes in her life and being given opportunities to implement new growth. Having Stella be written as grumpy and gothic while Aiden is Mr. Young, Hot, Dirty Santa Boss was something I didn’t know I’d be into. Ho Ho Hoe for that Bow Tie Tennessee Gentleman!”

Expressionless Face“No disfruté el libro, me pareció súper aburrido, lento y en puntos, desesperante. Los personajes no me cayeron bien y me sacaba de mis casillas el instalove 😩.”
