As the snow starts to fall on Manhattan, PA Dory Mackenzie is a long way from home, far from the comforts and cheer of her cozy family Christmases back in Liverpool.
So when her boss Tyler Alexander offers to pay her pricey ticket home for New Year, Dory just can’t say no… even if she has to pretend to be his girlfriend for the holidays!
Tyler may be hiding the real reason he needs a girlfriend-of-convenience but that’s the least of Dory’s worries when she’s up against the disapproval of his high society mother, and the suspicions of his gorgeous older brother Lucas, the black sheep of the family.
There’s no fooling Lucas, and it’s not just the truth he wants to get closer to… So before the bells have even rung out for Christmas day, Dory finds herself caught up in the Alexander family’s dramas – and sharing more than just a few kisses under the mistletoe!
All Dory wants is to be home for Christmas but she is stuck in New York alone and away from her loved ones. When her boss offers her a way to get home for New Years she knows she can’t say no.
I really liked Dory. She seemed like she had her head screwed on the right way but she was just so desperate to get home.
While Tyler may seem like the bad one for keeping his real girlfriend a secret he has his reasons and I think deep down he just loves his family.
Lucas is hot. Really hot. He’s also very inquisitive. He was like a dog with a bone, he knew something was quite right and he wasn’t going to rest until he figured it out.
I enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more of Sophie’s books in the future.
