Publisher Description

Jane Osborne is ready for love. That's why she had signed up with the matchmaking service to begin with. She hadn't been Blake's true love, and that was fine. 

But being publicly and unceremoniously dumped by him? 

Naughty list.

Being invited to the Christmas Eve wedding of him and the woman he dumped her for?


She can't not go, however. No, she needs to show Blake Donovan that she is just fine, thank you very much. He won't ruin her favorite holiday. All she needs is the perfect date.


Fake-boyfriend-for-hire Ian Brooks ends up being a delightful surprise--and a mysterious stranger she's definitely met before. Soon he's as tangled up in her life as Christmas lights. 

Could he be the holiday love she's dreamed of?

**This novella was originally published as "Unmatchable" in Brenda Novak’s ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS anthology.**

Good holiday book

Jane is a rich woman that has to please everybody. She needs a date for her ex’s wedding. She feels like she can’t show up without a date.

Ian is a man that is helping out his family and didn’t come from a rich family. He is from the southie.

Jane hired Ian to be her date and he has to be perfect. She tries to change him and it comes back and bites her and she realizes that is who she wants in her life. Jane had to have her way or the highway. They have good chemistry together. He likes to have fun and she seems to not know what that means.

It was nice seeing the women that needs to hire a date to it always being the male that needs one. A holiday book that was good.

Christmas is the season for love❤️

What an enjoyable and romantic Christmas story. The Christmas spirit was alive and well in Boston with the beautiful decorations and frenzied shopping. Jane was in love with Christmas and all of its magic, but she would never think of decorating before Thanksgiving, and she would certainly never attend the wedding of her ex boyfriend. But an idea came to her, and she decided to search for the perfect and appropriate man to be her escort at the dreaded wedding. Jane hit the jackpot when she met Ian online, and she enjoyed talking to him on the phone. Would he be as perfect in person? It definitely wouldn’t hurt to look him up on social media, just to take a peek at her future wedding date. She was shocked when she recognized his handsome face smiling back at her. Would Ian remember her? Jane had never stopped thinking about him. Will the stars in the Christmas sky shine down on Jane to show her what the holidays really mean?
