Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

Trouble With Mistletoe
 Heartbreaker Bay #2
By: Jill Shalvis
Release Date: September 27th, 2016

If she has her way . . .

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her . . .

He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him . . .

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice . . .

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work . . .

Willa Davis is many things; child of the foster system, animal lover, pet  boutique owner, trusting person and great friend. But when Keane Winters; guy who stood her up for the Sadie Hawkins dance!, walks into her store, all her good feeling is thrown out the window, and then add insult to injury…he doesn't remember her! Which makes her even more annoyed! But it doesn't stop her from boarding the beautiful Siamese cat he has brought with him.

When Keane Winters walked into South Bark Mutt Shop, willing to do anything to have her keep his great aunts cat for the day, he wasn't expecting to see a stunning women…with a x-rated headband on her head, or the fact that his great aunts angry cat, suddenly becomes sweet and loving, so he feels good leaving her with Willa, now if only he could figure out why he can't seem to stay away from Willa, or her band of slightly strange bff's, but he wants to get to know Willa better, but doesn't know why she seems so dead set against him.

But when the truth comes to light, Keane feels such remorse over an incident he doesn't remember. But he is determined to make it up to Willa, if only she gives him a chance…and I'm going to stop it there, as there is SO much more to this story, but I'm not going to give it away.

So Jill Shalvis with another amazing book in the Heartbreaker Bay series, and she has brought the hashtags with her! Yay!! Jill Shalvis is still a new author to me (this is only the 2nd book I have read), but it's so incredibly easy to fall in love with her writing style and amazing plot lines. I don't think I have ever become addicted to an author and her books, as quickly as I have with this authors.

When it comes to the characters, I absolutely love Willa and Keane; from Willa's soft heart to Keane's determination, it is so very easy to love these two! Now the other characters like Rory, Archer and Max, what's not to love! They are all divinely messed up, that I cannot wait to read their stories.

I give Trouble with Mistletoe 5 stars!

“You want to come upstairs, Willa?”
What she wanted was to put her hands back on his chest now that she knew it was as hard as it looked. Instead she gripped either side of her seat with white knuckles. “Of course not.”
“I think you do. I think you want something else too.”
“What I want,” she said as coolly as she could, “is dinner as promised.”
“Liar,” he chided softly.
“Well that’s just rude, calling your date a liar.”
“So it is a date.” His tone was very male and very smug. It should’ve pissed her off but instead it did something hot and erotic to her insides.
Clearly knowing it, he smiled at her and then dragged his teeth over his lower lip as he contemplated her.
Gah. She wanted to do that. And she wanted to do more too. She wanted him shockingly badly and suddenly she couldn’t remember why she shouldn’t. She tried to access her thought processes on the subject but her brain hiccupped and froze. Which surely was the only reason she let go of the death grip on her seat, slid her fingers into his hair, and . . . brushed her mouth over his.
He didn’t move, not a single muscle, but when she pulled back, his eyes had gone dark as night, piercing her with their intensity.
“Don’t read that the wrong way,” she whispered.
“Is there a wrong way to take it when a beautiful woman kisses you?”
