Review by Lilac

Erica Porter's new job might be her last. Kissing your married boss has a way of getting you fired. But the man under the mistletoe isn't who he seems and as their relationship grows, so do the secrets. How much longer will she have to pay for her mistletoe mistake?

Quentin Thorne has successfully avoided getting caught under the mistletoe for the bulk of his adult life without regret. However, his brother's new employee is about to change his views on Scandinavian legend.

When Erica Porter gets a new job, an encounter with a sexy stranger in the copy room quickly heats up as a simple kiss under the mistletoe gets steamy. Erica immediately regrets her impulsivity when she learns the identity of her mystery man, but he doesn’t quite feel the same. A case of mistaken identity and Erica’s desire to keep her personal life separate from work nearly ends her relationship with her mystery guy, Quentin Thorne, before it even has a chance to start. Quentin is not one to take advantage of employees, but he is taken with Erica and is determined to convince her to take a chance on him.

With its love-at-first-sight story, this fun read provides readers with a nice escape. Erica and Quentin are great characters whose easy relationship and flirtation I really enjoyed. The characters were very real and while I understood Erica’s fears and hesitancy about getting involved with her boss’s brother, at times I wanted to smack her because I was afraid she’d let a great guy get away. Quentin, a great hero and my favorite character of the story, is very patient and understanding about Erica’s need for discretion. In fact, he is more patient than most probably would be, but he truly cares for Erica and wants her to be happy.

I really enjoyed the humor and romance of this story and definitely recommend it!
