…a great Christmas read with a new twist on Scrooge. ~ Guilty Pleasures
There’s nothing On Top managing editor Cynthia “Starr” Starling hates more than Christmas. With an important deadline looming, plus her dreaded Christmas Day birthday, Starr just wants the holiday to end. But when she wakes up Christmas Eve night to the ghost of Christmas Past, Present, and Future—all in the form of the super-hot Matt Landry, the new art director—she knows she’s in for a long night.
Matt is the one person on Starr’s team she can’t boss around and the only one she doesn’t need to. He’s also her employee and totally off limits, even if he does seem interested. Though he’s seven years younger and all kinds of forbidden fruit, he’s the form the Powers That Be decided she’d be receptive to.
Because they have a message for her: learn the true meaning of Christmas spirit or risk being alone for the rest of her life.
I have really come to like this series the first book Operation Cinderella and even though this is a short novella it didn’t lack anything, for me, a great Christmas read with a new twist on Scrooge.
Cynthia Starling or Starr is what she prefers is the hard nose managing editor of On Top magazine. She is tough, ruthless and demands nothing but perfection from her employees and if that means they have to work the day after Christmas well so be it.
This short read takes Starr on a journey of Christmas past, present and future and how such a humble upbringing she had as a child has brought her into this spoiled bitter adult to exactly how her co-workers feel about her. Then of course her future, she has a chance at one which is very promising or one that is actually downright scary!
Matt Landry the magazines young hot art director appears to help Starr on this “trip” but it becomes obvious there is more to him than just a tour guide. Although Starr has feelings for the younger man she is his boss and there could never be anything more, so she keeps telling herself that. When it becomes apparent that he may play an important part in her future Starr has some changing to do.
Armed new knowledge Starr decides to take her future in her own hands and right a lot of wrongs.
Always wanting more, I look forward to the next book in the series and hopefully get a glimpse of Starr and Matt.
