Jill knows she still has to make money to pay the bills so she takes a catering gig as a sexy elf unbeknownst to her that Oliver would be in attendance. The initial flame is already lit but it becomes quite brighter when these two end up at his parents' house after getting stuck on the train in Connecticut on their way from leaving the party headed back to NYC.
Jill does a fantastic job of portraying Oliver's new girlfriend since that is whom they think she is and who is Jill to tell them differently. As their time together is thrown in such close proximity, that flame is turning up to inferno level. The only problem is the little hiccups that happen along the way like Jill's peanut allergy.
This story was refreshing and so light-hearted....you can't help but enjoy it! I needed that sense of humor and laughter so much...thank you Lila!
Because it is a novella, the characters are not very complex; however, Lila Monroe give readers enough characterization to make readers like Ollie and Jill. Readers will love Jill the moment she puts the directors in their place, and Oliver wins reads over with his charm and general kindness. Within the few short chapters, the author does a good job establishing a connection between the two.
Because of the length of the book, the pacing of the plot moves quickly; however, readers will not feel like they are missing pieces of the story or that the author is telling versus showing the reader what is going on in the story. Although it is low angst, I enjoyed the plot, and the resolution is perfect, making me love Ollie all the more.
Need a quick read for Christmas, then spend it with this Billionaire. He will treat you right. I promise.
Jill was too flighty, childish, and wishy washy. She acts like a spoiled preteen. Oliver was too nice for Jill's nonsense.
There were parts of the book that felt like lazy storytelling. Jill needs a dress? Enter her friend McKenna that has the perfect dress. Need someone to meddle near the very end? Enter her friend Tessa. In the one and only scene with Tessa, the author uses the wrong name at one point calling Tessa, Jill. That happens at 67% and the book ends at 71%, the rest is a collection of teasers for the author's other books. Way more telling than showing. There were a few typos throughout the book, as well. I can't recommend this book.
I loved how sassy and headstrong Jill was and how she spoke her mind at all costs. Oliver is her perfect match and I loved the connection these two had throughout the story. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love holiday reads and this one was right up my alley and just what I needed to satisfy my holiday sweet tooth.
