Hi everyone! It's a little early but let's put some christmas vibes in your eBook reader! 

Yup! Jill Shalvis have a new book of the Heartbreaker Bay Series and it takes us to the Christmas season. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you THE TROUBLE WITH MISTLETOE

* * *

If she has her way . . .

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her . . .

He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him . . .

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice . . .

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work . . .

Sometimes I need a book with a light plot to cheer me up. Something funny and romantic, full of sweet and ridiculous situations, with a little bit of angst but with a 'happily ever after'. Sometimes I need characters who learn from their mistakes, who take risks and leave their reservations behind in order to find true love... Jill Shalvis take all those things that I love in a romance novel, also she added a Pet shop, a sexy man who works with his bare hands, a funny group of friends and a lovely season. 

The trouble with mistletoe is a wonderful novel, built as a standalone (in case you're wondering). The lead characters are Willa, who runs a pet shop and also do some pet-sitting, and Keane who's a contractor working in building restorations. They seemed to have a common past, but he doesn't remember... and a weird but intense chemistry burn between them since th e first day Keane enters to the shop looking for someone to care Petunia, his aunt's cat (also known as PITA).

Willa Davis has a big heart. She loves her friends and all the pets who visits her shop. She also works as wedding planner for a couple of dogs. But when is about Keane Winters she's stubborn. She doesn't want to admit she likes him... that everytime he helps her with something, everytime she discover someting new about him, she feels more attracted by him. But maybe she isn't the only one fighting against those weird feelings. Maybe she's not the only one trying to figure out what's going on.

I enjoyed this book 'case was so easy to read, so fun and romantic... the nice vibes in the Willa's friend gang were amazing, and the chemistry of the lead couple is off-the-charts. Even though the plot is light and funny, there's an important (and heartbreaking) context: sometimes we don't tell to our friends and family how much they mean to us, how much we care, how much we love them... Sometimes we don't appreciate what we have. But we're lucky to have people to care about and people caring about us, 'cause even in a crowded room there's somebody feeling lonely, there's someone who has no family, friends or possetions. So, let's take a minute to say 'I love you' to our family and friends, let's take a minute to say thank you for all that we have, and let's enjoy this book 'cause is worth it.

Enjoy the excerpt: 

“You want to come upstairs, Willa?”
What she wanted was to put her hands back on his chest now that she knew it was as hard as it looked. Instead she gripped either side of her seat with white knuckles. “Of course not.”
“I think you do. I think you want something else too.”
“What I want,” she said as coolly as she could, “is dinner as promised.”
“Liar,” he chided softly.
“Well that’s just rude, calling your date a liar.”
“So it is a date.” His tone was very male and very smug. It should’ve pissed her off but instead it did something hot and erotic to her insides.
Clearly knowing it, he smiled at her and then dragged his teeth over his lower lip as he contemplated her.
Gah. She wanted to do that. And she wanted to do more too. She wanted him shockingly badly and suddenly she couldn’t remember why she shouldn’t. She tried to access her thought processes on the subject but her brain hiccupped and froze. Which surely was the only reason she let go of the death grip on her seat, slid her fingers into his hair, and . . . brushed her mouth over his.
He didn’t move, not a single muscle, but when she pulled back, his eyes had gone dark as night, piercing her with their intensity.
“Don’t read that the wrong way,” she whispered.
“Is there a wrong way to take it when a beautiful woman kisses you?”
