He’s smooth, charming, arrogant, and believes he can get whatever he wants—including her. Denying him is a challenge she can’t resist.
Six months ago, Gia lost the love of her life—and the spark that earned her the nickname Glitter Girl. When Christmas rolls near, along with her office decorating duties and the traditional hiding of mistletoe for the underground holiday kissing bets, she puts on her happy face and pretends she isn’t slowly suffocating. But when cocky lawyer and resident eye-candy Ian bets that she’s the one who will be kissing him beneath the mistletoe, Gia places a bet of her own...no way, no how will she lock lips with Ian.
Ian O’Connor refuses to lose, whether in the courtroom, the bedroom, or a bet concerning mistletoe kisses. From the day Gia walked into his law firm, she has haunted his fantasies with her blood-heating stilettos and sunshine smile. Now that she’s single again, he’ll do anything to eliminate his unhealthy fascination for her…a luxury he can’t afford without exposing his troubled past.
But as their battle—and their chemistry—grow in intensity, both Gia and Ian may discover there’s an even greater risk than losing a bet when surrendering to a kiss beneath the mistletoe…
C.J. Burright’s introduction to her new series, Music, Love and Other Miseries set the perfect foundation for a contemporary romance series that is going to rock your romance reading world. Like the series says, there will be music, definitely love and yes, some pain and sadness that needs to be healed.
EVERY KISS is the story of one woman facing the first holiday after she lost the love of her life while putting on her happy façade for those around her. Gia may not be ready to ruin the office holidays, but she will be darned if she will allow the office Casanova, the wickedly hot attorney, Ian O’Connor, anywhere near her lips should they get caught under the mistletoe. All bets are off when these two play to win the office betting pool. Odds are, Fate, Fun and Cupid have insider knowledge as their chemistry builds off the charts!
Simply a delightful short story about the magic of the season, moving forward with life without losing the memories of the past, just placing them safely tucked away. Ms. Burright has done a great justice to romance, healing and accepting a chance for happiness again without being dark, but rather light-hearted and upbeat with a touch of sass! A wonderful holiday story to warm your heart!
