Publisher Description

Enjoy this steamy, holiday romance by USA Today Bestseling Author, Zee Irwin.

My plan to move to New York City, away from my small town and everyone I know, does not involve falling for the grumpy, hot, annoyingly handsome playboy billionaire at my new job. But I do—every time Rex Buchanan walks into my deli with his smirk as he eyes my soon-to-be award-winning pastrami sandwich.

While I'm finally following my dream and taking over my Uncle's Manhattan deli, how dare Rex put down my culinary skills? Just because I add a little flare to New York's most popular sandwich? I'll show him, and soon, thanks to my mad social media skills, people are lining up out the door for my daily specials.

Despite the size of the city, now I seem to run into Rex everywhere. It's almost as if people are conspiring to put us in the same places at the same time, and the more time I'm forced to spend with him, I realize how much we have in common. While he may grumble at everyone else, I think I've found a way into his softer side—through his stomach.

Soon, I can hardly believe it, but I might reform the playboy bosshole and fall for him. By this time next year, I could have Rex saying I do and eating wedding cake out of my hands. This could be my last Christmas as a Miss.

When challenges arise, though, he's oddly there for me at every turn—or is he the person behind everything that could ruin my dreams?

Humorous and engaging, I enjoyed their scenes which were highly entertaining and sweet at the same time. The author captured my imagination with her characters infectious personalities. Nicely done.

Amazing start to this collection

This is the first book of this series, with each book being written by a different author. Once again Zee Irwin has brought us a collection that is gonna leave you wanting to read the whole collection in one sitting.

I loved the multiple tropes from grumpy/sunshine, enemies to lovers and more. I loved the character development, the drama and the chemistry. I was hooked from the prequel and this book just solidified that. I have to have more! I loved the strength of the different women, from Chelsea and Macy to Pearl and Rex’s mom, and how they were strong, determined and even a little sneaky.

I loved that Chelsea stood her ground and made her feelings known. I loved that she has such a close relationship to her family as was able to show Rex a new perspective of life. I also loved that Rex was able to do the same for her. I wasn’t sure how I felt about Rex and his motives, even when he started to realize his feelings had changed. The man sure knows how to spoil and romance a woman though! He won me over when he was willing to make a huge sacrifice just Chelsea.

I loved getting a sneak peak at what is to come for the next books. I’m so excited to see how these multiple authors will weave these stories and bring this collection together.

I received an advanced readers copy via Booksprout. These thoughts and opinions are my own and left voluntarily after reading for my own personal enjoyment.
