They didn’t believe in holiday magic… until it happens to them.
Anna McKinnon is a free spirit. As a bartender in New York City, she answers to no one, keeps what she calls “vampire hours” – and likes it that way. She secretly wishes to find real love, the forever kind her brothers have all found. But love has not only eluded her, it’s burned her badly. Keeping things light is how Anna copes.
David Beren is a high-powered, intense investment banker in the heart of Manhattan. His 80-hour work weeks took over his life long ago, but now, at 35, he’s ready for something more. But what? And then he meets Anna. She’s unexpected – full of light, color, and laughter. Anna knocks him off his game and his feet, and he’s never been happier.
Can total opposites – a feisty, bold girl from Ireland and a quiet, straight-laced Jewish guy from New Jersey – find love at the holidays? With the double whammy of a Hanukkah miracle and some Christmas magic, they just might.
Sweet, sexy holiday romance
I enjoyed this book, it was sweet, sassy, sad at times & very sexy. David & Anna are an odd couple but they fit so well. Anna is a sassy bartender; with her tattoos & her wild hair colours, she’s not who you’d think David would fall for. David, the buttoned up tight, stuffy workaholic investment banker, isn’t who Anna would look at either. An accidental encounter in a bakery, a forgotten bank card & a run in with her ex are what brings them together, a surprisingly hot kiss is what pushes them further. A true holiday story not just focused on Christmas but also on Hanukkah as well. I only wish that the book was a little longer so we could know what happened with each other’s families & how they reacted to the different religions & ethnicities. I’m looking forward to reading more books in this series. I received this book from the publisher through Bookfunnel for an honest review.
