Their attraction is undeniable, and as charming Sophia convinces Will to work with her, she slowly unwraps the secrets in his past that make this determined and soulful man still yearn for the childhood he never had.
When the chaos of production starts, will Sophia be able to keep her promises to protect Will from being exploited, or will the bitter truth of reality television be a runaway train of disaster for both of them?
Join Sophia, Will and his dog Romeo to enter the world of his enchanting holiday house where stars shine indoors and snow is always falling…365 days of the year
Sophia is a reality show producer getting set to do her latest project, a show about a man who celebrates Christmas year round. Will, the subject of the show, isn't what she expected when she first met him. Instantly they have an attraction and soon develop a friendship that turns into much more. What I really liked that Sophia and Will don't really have any excuses for falling in love. They just did it without even thinking about the fact that they are both working together. I liked that it wasn't added drama to the story. But that's not to say Sophia and Will didn't knock heads once in a while. In fact, they seemed to knock heads a lot. Sometimes I didn't really understand why Will blew up all the time at the littlest things and Sophia just took it. She bordered on being a doormat to Will and I wished she grew a pair. They also seemed to have a quick resolve to each argument, over and over.
The climax of the story which almost seemed to be done twice (the fire and the show premiere) were solid enough to carry the book. I will admit that I didn't understand Will's anger problems and his past until the end of the book where it all came together which I would have liked to see a little more backstory on sooner. I did like the end and felt that Clampett delivered a fine romance for her readers. It was a quick read for me and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a sweet and a little spicy romance to read while on their holidays.
