Sage has been working at a high-tech firm in Newport Beach, CA for over two years as the only female director among three men. She is highly valued by her boss and she loves her job, but there's a problem - she's totally attracted to him and the stress is killing her. She's taking three days off for the Christmas holiday and has posted her availability online, hoping to find a job when she returns. Before she can leave, she has to find her cell phone and she doesn't know where she left it.

Terrance is the founder and owner of Templeton Designs and considers Sage so valuable to the company, he can't afford to acknowledge the feelings he has for her. He's stuck at the company this year when normally he would be enjoying the holiday in a warm, tropical location. It may be the year he finds a way to acknowledge the woman who holds his heart captive

On a short story xmas binge! Downloaded a bunch so I'm getting through them for the holiday. 

Sage has been working for a firm in CA for over two years. She is highly valued by her boss and she loves her job. All seems perfect...but she is in love with her boss. Terrance is the founder and owner of the firm. He considers Sage so valuable to his company that he has been avoiding his feelings for her. Things happen and Christmas miracle may just happen for them. 

I liked this a lot. It was quick and cute. I felt bad for Sage and Terrance. Dating your boss is a rocky, rocky thing especially when the boss owns the entire company. 

Things happened quickly and they made things work. The ending "twist" was a little too much though. 

Overall, this was a good one. Short, sweet, and xmas-y. The twist was a little over-the-top though. I'll stamp this with 3 stars.

Tora Hammond can't wait to sell the family bakery run by generations of Hammond women and seek excitement outside of Dorado, Texas. Widower Jordan Dawson, the town's star quarterback from a decade ago, returns to his hometown with plans to develop a sporting goods store. He also hopes a small town Christmas will cheer up his five-year-old daughter, Jenna, still recovering from the loss of her mother. Will the spark of interest Tora sees in Jordan's eyes be the excitement she's looking for

Gingerbread! Couldn't resist this one. 

Tora can't wait to see the family bakery and seek life and excitement outside of Texas. Jordan is a widower and the town's star quarterback from a decade ago. He decides to return home and open a sporting goods store. The two meet and sparks fly.

This was okay. I was annoyed with Tora. I get WHY she wanted out of town, but not really. Go on a vacation or something. Don't sell the family bakery! It's been in the family for generations!! I liked Jordan though and his daughter. She was cute!

It was short and limited drama so it worked for what it was. A quick romance for the holidays and food! There were little annoyances for me. Maybe if the book was longer?

I want to try that recipe at the end of the book. Sounds yummy!

Overall, not bad. Some little things annoyed me, but it was cute and xmas-y. Perfect for the season. 3 stars.
