A kiss is just a kiss…
Unless it’s under the mistletoe.
Ellie Smith is determined to make up for Christmases past by spreading holiday cheer throughout the Bar V5 dude ranch, but tech “bah, humbug” billionaire, Josiah Whittaker, refuses to bask in the spirit of the season.
Unwilling to let the geek-to-gorgeous Josiah win, Ellie plans to give him a Christmas he’ll never forget. But after a simple kiss under the mistletoe, Ellie and Josiah both start questioning everything. Can Christmas really bring the gift neither one of them were expecting: true love?
A story that will definitely get your Christmas spirits high, and put a smile on your face. Ellie's enjoyment and thrill of Christmas is pure and joyful. She genuinely loves the Christmas time, and to bring cheer to other people's lives. She is easy to like, her love for life and caring for others are endearing, her goals in life, and how she goes about fulfilling them are admirable.
Josiah is a total opposite to Ellie, when it comes to Christmas. And I thought it was understandable, he didn't try to stop others from enjoying the holidays, he just rather not participate in the festivities. That is allowed.
Both of them have such a giving heart, they are willing to go the extra mile for others. The charity work Ellin does, and Josiah helps her with, was thoughtful and important.
I loved the spark between them, the attraction was immediate on both sides, but they are approaching it in such a sensible way. But the kisses are hot, addictive, and the connection that they formed a long time ago, in their teens, sparks up again, and feelings step in, feelings either one of them are not expecting, or ready for.
This was a heartwarming story, filled with cheer, joy, caring and love
