To review

Contemporary romance

By chance Harper and Jonah exchange phones. And they have each other phones for a week, and since they want to know what happens they do read texts and text each other about it. Lots of fun and gringy moments.

Then they meet, find each other as interesting as in their texts, and it begins. But oops! She is working for the new coffee shop chain, and his family's shop is not doing well.

For once they do talk in this one, and try to make it work even though they are "enemies", that was a nice change of things. Talking! Trying! Sure there are some speed bumps, but which relationship does not have those. And of course there are dogs. I mean it did start with a dogs, so lovable dogs for everyone.

I enjoyed it, sweet, I did see that end coming before they did. Good choice.

Great narration too. She really got that annoying boss down. A good listen

All Harper Thompson wants for Christmas is the huge promotion she's worked so hard for--which she should get, as long as her launch of the hip new coffeehouse, Deja Brew, goes according to plan. Jonah Rogers is spending the holiday season trying to save his family's coffee shop, Lucky Star, from going out of business, which will be tough with the brand-new Deja Brew opening across the street.

When Jonah and Harper meet for the first time after accidentally swapping phones, their chemistry is as electric as a strand of Christmas lights. He's a tall, handsome, compassionate hunk of engineer, and she's an entrepreneur whose zest for life is very sexy. They love all the same things, like running, scary movies, greasy food--and most of all, dogs. It's a match made in heaven...until Jonah finds out that Harper's the one about to put him out of business.

Only one coffee shop can survive, and a competition of one-upmanship ensues in a holiday battle of the brews. The paws really come out when the local rescue shelter has a fundraiser where local businesses foster dogs, and patrons donate cash to vote for their favorite pup. Harper takes in an adorable old bulldog on behalf of Deja Brew, while Jonah fosters a perky three-legged dachshund for Lucky Star. When one precious pup is crowned King Mutt, and a For Sale sign goes up in the other shop's window, Harper and Jonah must decide if their connection was all steam or if they are the perfect blend.
