Run for the hills—temporarily. That’s Colbie Albright’s plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie’s so over it that she’s under it. She’s also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she’s pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won’t be a stranger for long.
Spence’s commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn’t have to worry about the powerful—okay, crazy hot—chemistry he’s got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself... just because she’s gorgeous and a great listener…just because she “gets” Spence immediately doesn’t mean he won’t be able to let Colbie go. Does it?
…and hope for a miracle.
Now the clock’s ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime.
Chasing Christmas Eve didn’t let me down, but it is a Jill Shalvis book and her stories are always fun, sweet, cute, loving and so much more wrapped up like a present under a Christmas tree. Colbie is a successful author whose first breakout novel is slated to be on a big screen soon. She would prefer people didn’t know this though and tends to hide who she is from people, including Spencer. Spencer is your typical playboy bachelor. Rich and sexy in California equals women falling at your feet and the occasional marriage proposal. Spencer isn’t all about that though and prefers privacy. The same kind of privacy Colbie craves. When they let down their guards with each other sparks ignite and you’re going to need a fan to keep cool. Jill always writes sexy, steamy scenes, but entwined in them are the reasons why the two characters are broken and need the other to find their way back to happiness. Both Colbie and Spencer learn about themselves as they learn about each other, and they both decide they’ve focused on their work and their past for too long. If you looking for a relaxing, sit by the fire, sip hot chocolate kind of read then you need to add Chasing Christmas Eve to your Christmas list!
