NEW RELEASE PROMO ~ The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

  troublewithmistletoe-lighter-with-ribbons-250x403


Synopsis:

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 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 . . .



The Trouble with Mistletoe Buy Links:
 
“You want to come upstairs, Willa?”
What she wanted was to put her hands back on his chest now that she knew it was as hard as it looked. Instead she gripped either side of her seat with white knuckles. “Of course not.”
“I think you do. I think you want something else too.”
“What I want,” she said as coolly as she could, “is dinner as promised.”
“Liar,” he chided softly.
“Well that’s just rude, calling your date a liar.”
“So it is a date.” His tone was very male and very smug. It should’ve pissed her off but instead it did something hot and erotic to her insides.
Clearly knowing it, he smiled at her and then dragged his teeth over his lower lip as he contemplated her.
Gah. She wanted to do that. And she wanted to do more too. She wanted him shockingly badly and suddenly she couldn’t remember why she shouldn’t. She tried to access her thought processes on the subject but her brain hiccupped and froze. Which surely was the only reason she let go of the death grip on her seat, slid her fingers into his hair, and . . . brushed her mouth over his.
He didn’t move, not a single muscle, but when she pulled back, his eyes had gone dark as night, piercing her with their intensity.
“Don’t read that the wrong way,” she whispered.

“Is there a wrong way to take it when a beautiful woman kisses you?”

 



BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

Why, oh why have I never read a Jill Shalvis book before now?? Anna over at Herding Cats has told me often enough that JS’s books are great reads and I should definitely check them out, but did I listen?

The Trouble With Mistletoe was a really great read. I loved both Willa and Keane.
The main characters were both very likable, each had their own thoughts and fears when it came to commitment but together they navigated the beginnings of a relationship and they were so well suited!

TTwM was laugh out loud funny, sweet, sexy and had a real feel good vibe to it. I loved that it was set at Christmas (and that Willa was as over-the-top Mrs Christmas as I am!!) but what made me smile huge was Petunia, Keane’s aunt’s cat that he unwittingly ends up cat-sitting and the reason he and Willa meet in the first place!!

One of my favourite things in a book like this is a really good supporting cast of characters and Ms Shalvis didn’t disappoint – the gang of friends that Willa has, and her girls, were great and fun to read about and I’m looking forward to getting to know more about them in their own stories!

So, yep, this was my first Jill Shalvis read but definitely won’t be my last – I’m gonna go and check out the first book in the Heartbreaker Bay series as well as the rest of her back catalogue – and if the others are as good as this one I’m gonna be a long time fan!!
