Lucy Miller has worked her way up from coffee-fetcher and copy-maker to invaluable assistant. She’s proud of her accomplishments, but she’s looking forward to a break from her demanding boss; a visit home is just the Christmas treat she needs.
Diligent and unassuming, Chanoch Evans has avoided relationships not just out of shyness, but because he doesn’t feel like he has anything to offer—most of his resources are devoted to his war-veteran younger brother.
When a desperate plea from their boss ruins their holiday plans, Lucy and Evans are stuck in an otherwise empty office with only each other for company. After catching their boss in flagrante, they start to see that each other’s mild workplace personas might be just the tip of the iceberg. Despite the prohibition against fraternization between employees, there may be more than kissing going on underneath this mistletoe…
I absolutely loved these characters! They were both so sweet, shy, and worked so well together. Each time I read a new book in this series I feel like I forget who the main characters are and then I get to fall in love with them all over again! Lucy and Evans were buried in the other stories so I am so happy that they finally get to tell their story and have a chance to shine!
Lucy Miller is the best damn assistant she can be even if her family thinks she’s a glorified paper pusher. But the more that gets piled on to her plate the more she feels underappreciated. And being asked to work through the holidays and not get the chance to go home adds more stress than she thought possible. The only silver lining is that while she’s stuck in the almost empty office, Evans is too. A chance encounter changes everything between them and everything she thought she knew about herself. Can Lucy dig deep and give into the wild streak that has her captivated? Or will old hang ups maker her lose the guy that makes her heart soar?
Chanoch Evans is the good guy. Always helping out his family and never saying no. But he’s tired. Tired of always being taken for granted and never doing anything for himself. So, when the opportunity of a life time arises, he jumps in with both feet! Lucy Miller is the prettiest girl he has ever seen and ever since the first moment he saw her, he knew she was something special. And after witnessing their boss in, let’s just say a compromising position, Evans starts seeing Lucy in a different light too. When they both dive in head first into this complicated arrangement, they find out more about themselves than ever before. Can Evans hold on to the future he has always wanted? Or will past obligations get in the way of the only thing that makes him truly happy?
This story was different from the other novels in this series. The other novels were hardcore BDSM themed and this one was, shall I say, slightly kinky. Or dare I say pretty ordinary when compared to the rest of the series. But I really think that’s what made these characters shine. They weren’t hardcore ball busters or deep into kink. They were charming and that’s what set them apart from the crowd!!
Ultimately, I loved how different this novel was! These characters took me on a ride that was captivatingly sexy with just the right amount of sweetness to level things out!! All in all, if you are in the mood for a story that draws you in and refuses to let you go until you reach the end then come check out Due South!!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
