Come a week later and both find themselves at the same New Year’s Eve party but will they allow themselves to fall for each other or will they simply just part and continue to their lives like they never met?
I will say this is one of my favorite recent reads, I loved everything about it. I loved how Sophie didn’t let some sorry guy ruin her Christmas and that she took a chance on Austin. Austin on the other hand had me from the start, I loved that he was confident but not too cocky as they say there is a fine line between the two and he was towing it! Sophie was so different than girls Austin had dealt with in the past and the fact that she didn’t know who he was made her more attractive to him. Plus the fact that she didn’t back down from him really got to him, he’s use to getting what he wants when he wants no excuses. I think both balanced each other so well he gave her confidence and she keeps him grounded. They are definitely one of favorite couples! This book has what it takes for a magical Christmas read: snow, NYC at Christmas time, a great couple and an awesome romance what more can you ask for?
