BOOK BLURB:

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 he doesn’t even remember her. How 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…

EXCERPT:

Willa had no idea what the hell she thought she was doing agreeing to go out with Keane for dinner, but apparently her feet knew because they took her back into the grooming room to tell Rory.
    The girl was cross-legged on the floor in front of Carl, brushing him. Sitting facing her, Carl’s head was higher than Rory’s but he sat still happily, smiling.
    Carl loved the attention, all of it.
    “I’m heading out,” Willa said.
    “Thanks for the newsflash.”
    “I’m going with Keane.”
    Rory froze. Only her eyes swiveled to Willa. “Has hell frozen over?”
    Willa sighed. Given that all her current feelings for Keane were mixed up with her past feelings for him, she could hardly explain it to someone else much less herself. “It’s just dinner.”
    “Uh-huh,” Rory murmured, stroking an ecstatic Carl. “Remember you’re the one who said the devil himself couldn’t drag you cold, dead corpse out on a date with Keane even if he was hot as balls.”
    “Shh!” Willa took a quick look behind her but thankfully Keane hadn’t followed. “It’s all very…complicated.”
    “Complicated,” Rory repeated, amused. “Maybe we should have the birds-and-bees talk, like you always try to have with me when I’m attracted to the wrong-for-me guys.”
    “Funny,” Willa said. The fact was, both of them were attracted to the wrong men, still.
    But Rory was on a roll, ticking off points on her fingers. “No sleeping with him on the first date, no matter how amazing he kisses—“
    “Oh my God, keep your voice down!” Willa looked behind her again. “I’m not going to sleep with him on the first date.” Even if the low, sexy tone of his voice did very interesting, very distracting things to her body. Nope, she wasn’t going down that road because that road led to her downfall every time. This was just dinner, that was it. It was the only way she could ensure her emotional security. No more falling for a guy too quickly. Nope. Not gonna happen.

MY REVIEW:


5 Stars!
 
I was pulled right into this story. The story has pain, secrets, suspense, and heartbreak.

Before reading this story please read the below books first...
Sweet Little Lies (Heartbreaker Bay #1)

This is Willa and Keane’s story. Willa helps everyone she can out. With her broken past she is taking a break from men. When a man from her past comes to her pet shop she is upset that he does not remember her from the past. Was she so unforgettable? Keane needs Willa’s help but can’t figure out the hurt and sadness in her eyes when she looks at him. After the past comes out he understands but can he make her understand what happened? Lots of little things combined bring these two together. But can her friends and his great aunt’s cat keep them together or will there past make them believe they can’t have a future together?

I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.
