It was supposed to be my getaway Christmas,
Now, I’m stuck sharing with my brother’s best friend,
This has just turned into the holiday from hell!
For the first time in years, I was excited about the holidays,
A week of sun, sea and luxury, curtesy of my newly loaded brother.
I should have known there’d be a sting in the tail…
The moment I arrive in Hawaii, I realize there’s an intruder in the house,
And it’s no burglar—no, it’s far worse than that,
Because Ryan Finch—my brother’s business partner, and the same man my mother’s been trying to hook me up with for years—is apparently here for the holidays as well.
The longer we spend together, the harder it is to remember all the reasons why I told myself that going there would be a terrible idea,
And my relaxing Christmas getaway has just turned into the ultimate exercise in restraint.
Will I give in to temptation and find that he’s more than his reputation, or will the truth that I’m trying to ignore leave me crushed?
