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 . . .
Willa and Keane went to high school together. Though he doesn't remember her at first she remembers him clearly and he was her main crush. Though Keane doesn't remember her he can't seem to get her off his mind now.
Willa has a giant, soft heart especially for animals and wounded souls. She helps girls with troubled pasts by giving them jobs and helping them the best way she can. She's very likable though a bit hung up on the past. Keane is sexy, smart and has a giant heart as well, even though he denies he knows how to love and care for others.. He takes in his aunt's cat even though he can't stand it and cares for it while she's away. He also can't seem to help himself from giving others hands up as well. The two were meant for each other. Keane also has a determination to show Willa they were meant to be that will melt the most frozen of hearts if it's not from all the other heart warming moments.
The story is enjoyable however a bit slower paced than the first story in the series. It was a bit tougher to get into but once in it cruised along nicely. If you enjoy second chance romances I would definitely check out The Trouble with Mistletoe.
