Aspiring dancer and choreographer, Lacey Hamilton, can’t wait to go back to Snow Valley for a traditional family Christmas and a chance to heal her broken heart. Until she finds out her ex boyfriend and his new fiancé will be coming for Christmas dinner. When her crazy roommate concocts a ‘Hallmark movie’ kind of plan to hire a fake boyfriend to win him back, she’s desperate enough to go through with it.
Dominick Carter, an air force fighter pilot, took the job as fake boyfriend to avoid a lonely and pathetic Christmas holiday. When he discovers the girl is hyper controlling, doesn’t have a plan, and wants to call him ‘Rhett’ he has serious second thoughts—this ain’t Gone with the Wind, people! Charmed by her welcoming family and the small town that looks like it should be out of a Christmas card, he figures they might just be able to pull off this charade.
After trying to keep all the lies straight, a late night in the hot springs and a confession from the ex, everything seems to be falling apart… until she finds herself kissing Dominick. Now she has to make a choice…face the lies of the past or trust in a man she barely knows and get a future that might just be the Christmas miracle she’s been looking for.
Cute Christmas story. This is pretty much a Hallmark movie story line. You know what is going to happen and you just enjoy the ride. I liked the main characters though it was a little rocky at first. I thought Dom was a little jerky toward her and Lacey was pretty immature trying to get her old boyfriend back using him. But it didn’t take long for me to be won over by both of them. I was glad to see that she was smart enough to see Oliver for what he was and not be tempted by him at all. And I was glad that Dom had a desire to be above board with Lacey’s family. I liked Lacey’s family a lot too. Great support system. And forgiving. Good people.
It isn’t a long story so it is good for an evenings feel good read.
