“So it is a date.” His tone was very male and
very smug. It should’ve pissed her off but instead it did something hot and
erotic to her insides.

If she has her way…

…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 he doesn’t even remember her. How 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…

What do you get when you take two commitment phoebes and have them date? You get humor and a lot of heartache. Willa is a product of the foster system, and so she takes in all sorts of strays. She expects everyone will eventually leave her and she expects things with Keane to be no different. Keane is a hung of a guy, who wasn't wanted at home and has some scars as a result. The interactions between the two are filled with humor and when Petunia is thrown in the mix, you can't help but smile. Shalvis writes with heart and humor, and this book has both in spades. The secondary characters really add to the story and this story just makes me want more. I give it a solid 4.5 stars and look forward to the next story in this series.
