His Christmas Wish
Ever since he accidentally outed Santa as a fraud, guest news anchor Duke Rodriguez is getting his first taste of bad press.
Worse yet, the former baseball star is striking out with sexy decorator Macy Cuomo. To prove he's no grinch, he offers to work for free during her busiest weekend.
A vibrant, down-to-earth single mom, Macy makes Duke want to leave the limelight behind and focus on making all of her sensual fantasies come true.
Despite his festive faux pas, Macy has to admit there's a good reason Duke is every hot-blooded woman's secret crush—hers included. Behind the famously gorgeous physique is a smart, charismatic man who lights her up like a Christmas tree with just one sizzling kiss.
Opposites definitely attract, but when celebrity drama comes calling, will their budding love survive the holiday season?
A different angle to look and celebrate the festivities of the season.
Duke comes of the Dominican Republic, a former baseball star, now reporting the news, and surrounded by beautiful women, gets struck by the lighting when he meets Macy, the single mother, who's made a name for herself as the holiday law decorator.
I liked how much history the author gives the readers about the characters, as well as about the traditions and habits of the cultures they come from. It all was well inserted into the story, and so made it interesting.
The was Macy's teenage daughter communicates on twitter was amusing, the use of social media very much today.
Duke and Macy were both attractive, charming characters, easy to like, and entertaining to read about. The lust between them obvious, and the first meeting hilarious because of it. I just never caught up on the chemistry between them, everything seemed very much temporary, more like a game or a challenge, I just didn't feel anything deeper between them.
Also, how Duke let his ex run all over the place, without making a stand, made me raise my eyebrows. I get why he did it, but still, get a control of your life, man. Act like the Duke! When I hear the name Duke the first thought I will have is John Wayne, the most alpha male in history, and that's a lot to live up to.
Overall the story was entertaining, the small town people's reaction to the baseball star amusing, and lots of seasonal parties with high drama to indulge
