About this ebook

FBI agent Max Carter lives his life by a strict set of rules—rules that don't allow for distraction, deviation...or a relationship. But tell that to his matchmaking mama. To avoid yet another set-up, he announces he has a girlfriend. And now has to produce said girlfriend at Christmas dinner. Maybe Santa has a suitable actress in that red bag of his...

Gina Castillo is about to break her building’s iron-clad “no pets” policy to give her little brother the perfect Christmas gift—a dog. Too bad Max, the most inconveniently sexy tenant in the building, catches her red-handed. Gina expects to be evicted, but instead finds herself blackmailed into playing the role of his girlfriend.

Two lies plus one dog should equal a hot mess of a holiday, but attraction and Christmas magic might just defy the rules...

This is the first book I read by this author, and it definitely won’t be the last. The story centers around Max, an obsessively compulsive , and slightly OCD FBI agent Max and Gina , his absolutely opposite. She works multiple part-time jobs, and is an aspiring stage designer who is not only spontaneous, but also lives in a controlled chaos environment. While Max is a by the book guy, Gina is currently leasing a friend’s apartment next to Max and is hiding a puppy in a building that does NOT allow pets. But, her heart is in a good place, since the puppy is a Christmas gift for her brother. Max catches her with her “contraband” and instead of turning her in, he “blackmails” her. He won’t say anything as long as she acts as his girlfriend at his parents Christmas Eve dinner. What started out as make believe seems to have gone a tad haywire. But not all runs smoothly in paradise. Will they be able to accept each other, or will they lose their chance at HEA? The rollercoaster ride is entertaining and you will fall in love with both characters. I sure did. I was gifted this copy by Entangled Publishing and Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

I had so much fun reading this book and I absolutely adored it! He's stoic, controlled, orderly. She's carefree, free spirited, and chaos yet Gina and Max are perfect together. Max has gotten himself into a real fix with his family. Tired of their relentless matchmaking he blurts out that he has a girlfriend. Now the family wants to meet her! Then opportunity strikes. After stumbling upon the woman apartment sitting for his neighbor smuggling a dog into the building he blackmails her into posing as his girlfriend over the holidays with his family. The plan seems perfect until he really gets to know Gina and the amount of chaos she brings to his very orderly life. By then it's too late! A great read and one I definitely recommend.

LOVED this book! Gina is subletting her friend's apartment....her pet free apartment, where she has sneaked in a dog to give to her brother for Christmas. Unfortunately, Max, her neighbor, has caught her with the dog and blackmails her to keep it a secret. He needs a pretend girlfriend to keep his family from setting him up at Christmas and Gina seems like the perfect solution. This novel is smart, funny, and sexy. It's positively delicious to read and I already can't wait for the authors' next book. This is a must read for fans of the genre. The author is on my must read authors' list.

About the author

Award-winning contemporary romance author, Kadie Scott, attempted to find a practical career by earning a degree in English Rhetoric (Technical Writing). However, she swiftly discovered that writing without imagination is not nearly as fun as writing with it.

No matter the genre, she loves to write witty, feisty heroines, sexy heroes who deserve them, and a cast of lovable characters to surround them (and maybe get their own stories). She currently resides in Austin, Texas, with her own personal hero, her husband, and their two children, who are growing up way too fast.
