It’s not easy to reinvent yourself, but my thirteen-year-old son and I are ready for a new start. Old Maggie was a magnet for disaster, but New Meg is going to be elegant, sophisticated… and blonde. I’ve landed a dream job at the other end of New Zealand as PA to three rich directors who spoil me rotten, I’ve found a beautiful new apartment, and I feel reborn.
Then I write an email to a friend describing in vivid detail what I want to do to the sexiest of the directors—involving melted chocolate and/or whipped cream—and mistakenly send it to All Staff. It turns out that New Meg is pretty much just Old Maggie with different packaging. Some things never change.
I’ve wanted Meg since she first walked into my office with her soft lips and sexy curves, but she wears another man’s ring, so I’ve steered well clear… until now. My mind’s been occupied anyway since I broke up with my ex, Natalie. She’s desperate to have me back and won’t take no for an answer—so I’ve come up with a brilliant plan, to hire a fake fiancée for Christmas to prove to her that we’re done.
After sending her hot-as-hell email, Meg confesses the truth about her past, and it gives me an idea. She can pretend to be my fiancée, and I can protect her from the guy she’s running from. Sounds like the perfect plan, right? Her teenage son’s no problem because we get on great. Sharing her room? That’s more of a challenge, but I’ve always had excellent self-control.
Yeah, I know. I keep forgetting about the melted chocolate. What an idiot.
I am a pretty big Serenity Woods fan so I was shocked that I hadn’t read anything in the Love Comes Later series. The first story, My Christmas Fiancé is Meg and Stratton and holy hell do I love these two!
Meg has been through hell and she’s reinvented herself and created a whole new life for her and her son Oscar. She’s my favorite kind of heroine because she has her weaknesses but she isn’t a weak woman. She’s strong and feisty and she’s willing to fight. But she’d rather everyone just live in peace. She’s also vulnerable and a tad naïve and that just makes her super awesome in my book.
And Stratton, well he is a bit of scrumptious man candy and you can totally see why Meg wants to dip him in melted chocolate. Heck, I wanted to do the same thing! But the way he falls is…everything. He’s so expressive and raw and kind of bumbling. The man may think he’s no good at expressing his emotions but he is. He SO is!
They’re story together is really great and I’ll admit that I cringed a bit when I read the first chapter and found it to be in first person. I pushed on and I’m happy that I did because I loved their story. It was almost more of a friends to lovers story than a boss/secretary.
Exes play a huge role in this story which normally I hate but I think they both dealt with them the best they could. I mean, what do you do when someone won’t take “no” for an answer? Personally I would have had Natalie and Bruce locked up but I’m mean like that.
My Christmas Fiancé was a great story and I don’t think you need to wait until the holidays to read it. It’s steamy, it’s funny and damn if it doesn’t just give you the feels.
Now I must be off because though this was purchased as part of a Serenity Woods bundle pack (Finding Love, free at time of review), I’ve already gotten My New Year Fling and I’m ready to dive right in!
