Dumped by his ex on Christmas Eve two years ago, Oxford Street department store manager Richard Barrett now hates the holidays. Things go from bad to worse when the store's usual Santa is too ill to reprise his role and the firm sends cocky but handsome Blaine Ryder to take his place. The attraction between the two is clear, but Blaine is an incorrigible player who reminds Richard of his ex. His idea of a relationship is a quick roll in the hay, and his advances have Richard running for the hills. It might take some special intervention for both of them to realize they can change enough to have a chance at a holiday romance.Santa for Hire by Asta Idonea
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This actually a very entertaining story.
Nice and naughty. I think I can understand why Richard hates Christmas, and even he likes the sexy Blaine, well, Blaine reminds him of his ex.
Good thing is, there's Jill, who really cares about her boss and did some 'talk' with Blaine (and Richard, as well)
I liked how this one ended, the HFN has a promised to a HEA in the future.
