The Trouble With Mistletoe
by Jill Shalvis
If she has her way . . .
Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her . . .
He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.
Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him . . .
Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice . . .
Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work . . .
**I received an ARC for an honest review.**
I have read a few books by this author and this one did not disappoint. It was a great, although early, holiday read. I love the holiday cheer that was consistent throughout this book.
Willa was definitely one of those leading ladies that you fall in love with. She turned her life into something great and respectable considering the cards she was dealt early in life. Her love and passion for helping those around her was a great trait that I liked about her.
Keane was definitely another favorite of mine. I hated that he was so hard on himself about the kind of person he was. He didn't even notice the small things that made his a great guy. When he finally realized what he was capable of love, Willa was having second thoughts on what she was capable of. There was a little back and forth waffling on emotions for each character, but for the most part they figured their stuff out.
This was a quick, sexy and sweet read and I would recommend reading it if you are in the holiday mood early this year.
