Steamy-Sweet Contemporary Romance
He’s smooth, charming, arrogant and believes he can get whatever he wants—including her. Denying him is a challenge she can’t resist.
Six months ago, Gia lost the love of her life—and the spark that earned her the nickname ‘Glitter Girl’. When Christmas rolls near, along with her office-decorating duties and the traditional hiding of mistletoe for the underground holiday kissing bets, she puts on her happy face and pretends she isn’t slowly suffocating. But when cocky lawyer and resident eye-candy Ian bets that she’s the one who will be kissing him beneath the mistletoe, Gia places a bet of her own. No way, no how will she lock lips with Ian.
Ian O’Connor refuses to lose, whether in the courtroom, the bedroom or a bet concerning mistletoe kisses. From the day Gia walked into his law firm, she has haunted his fantasies with her blood-heating stilettos and sunshine smile. Now that she’s single again, he’ll do anything to eliminate his unhealthy fascination for her—a luxury he can’t afford without exposing his troubled past.
But as their battle—and their chemistry—grow in intensity, both Gia and Ian may discover there’s an even greater risk than losing a bet when surrendering to a kiss beneath the mistletoe.
A Note From the Publisher
This book is a prequel to the Music, Love and Other Miseries series.
I'm a huge fan of this author, so I was super excited when I found out about this series! Like her previous books, I took an immediate liking to these characters. Their chemistry is palpable, and I have to say this book is one big tease to read, because their story is far from over. ~What's Beyond Forks?
"He tasted of whiskey and life and reckless decisions, and she wanted to get drunk on him." I'm still dancing under the stars. That had to be one of the most poignant scenes I've ever read. The moment was so vivid so tactile. (I caught myself swaying to the music). ~Goodreads Reviewer
