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 love Jill Shalvis and her warm, funny characters with some humor. This series has an amazing group of friends supporting each other like family, something I’ve always wished I had. The couples issues don’t seem exactly realistic; these two could have solved most of their problems by actually talking to each other honestly. They finally did. Willa doesn’t seem as talkative, disclosing everything as in the first book. Of course, this is about herself, not other people. Willa and Keane are both good, caring people and give so much to others without expecting anything much for themselves.
Realistic or not, I cared about these people. They made me laugh and cry and lust and love. Feelings are THE reason to read anything. I’ll always want to read about them. I’m excited to learn more about Elle; she’s such a mystery woman, but strong and competent.
