Katie Lane & Hope Ramsay Book Reviews!

Book Description:
Always putting business before pleasure, Cassie McPherson works hard for her family's construction business. That might explain why she doesn't have a date for the company Christmas party. But it doesn't quite explain why she's crazy enough to hire an escort for the event or - crazier still - why she's dying to unwrap him like a present . . .
With whiskey-colored eyes and a killer smile, James is one gorgeous hunk who really knows how to fill out a tuxedo. He charms everyone, including Cassie. And when the night ends, the party doesn't stop. As Cassie falls, literally, into his bed, James falls head over heels in love. Now he has to figure out a way to tell her the truth: he's not an escort. He's her family's fiercest business rival. But all he wants for Christmas is her . . .

My Thoughts:
I liked this one!  It really gets you into the Christmas mood. :)  Cassie is a workaholic.  Since her father's heart attack, she's been working even harder than normal.  Now, with the company Christmas party looming she hires an escort.  James is much hotter than any other escort and she can't seem to get herself under control around him (as if she wanted to!).  There is one major glitch, James  isn't an escort and is actually her family's biggest business competition.
I liked all the characters in this book.  Cassie's family was wonderful.  She was a bit too much of a workaholic but it worked out well for her!  Her brothers' being so protective was entertaining to read.  The chemistry between her and James was hot!  James...oh how marvelously written!  He makes you swoon even if he's just a 'novel' idea.
I rate this a 4/5.  It was enjoyable and highly entertaining.

Book Description:
Dear Reader,
I've been wishing for a miracle for my oldest boy, Stone, and this Christmas my prayers might just be answered!

Her name is Lark, and she's here in Last Chance, looking into her father's past-and stirring up a whole mess of trouble without meaning to. As the chief of police, Stone sure has his hands full trying to keep up with her. Ever since his wife died, Stone's put everything into raising his daughters and dodging the Christ Church Ladies' Auxiliary matchmakers. And it's clear Lark has been through some trouble and could use a place to finally call home. I only hope Stone can let go of the past soon enough to keep her . . .
Goodness, I need to stop talking and finish up Jane's highlights so we can make the town tree-lighting. You come back by because the Cut 'n' Curl's got hot rollers, free coffee, fresh-baked Christmas cookies-and the best gossip in town.

See you real soon,
Ruby Rhodes

My Thoughts:
I really liked this little Christmas tale!  Lark is in Last Chance only to spread her father's ashes and leave.  There is a glitch that the town remembers him and remembers him as a troublemaker and worse!  Stone is the Chief of Police and has had heartbreak and a bit of a tough life.  But he has his 2 wonderful daughters and the love of the town, now he just has to figure out what to do with Lark!
I completely enjoyed Stone's two daughters.  I was heartbroken for Haley and Lizzy was highly entertaining!  Lark's past intrigued me and made her more suited to Stone than I'd first thought.  Stone's past is tough to get over but he has enough people pushing him to do so, they just never expected HER.  The substory is good and I want to revisit Last Chance soon!
I rate this a 4/5.  It is apparently one in a series but stands alone quite well.
