The Christmas Party by Amabel Daniels

Blind dates are lousy enough. But a set-up at an office party? Single mom Madison Harper lacks the patience to tolerate another miserable date, no matter how sexy her best friend swears this mystery man is. With the promise of a rare night out, and the curiosity of who he might be, Maddie decides, what the hell, it’s only one night, right?

Jilted and heartbroken, British CEO Liam Waterson has room for one relationship in his life: his work. Though he intends to stay home, he relents to meet a stranger for the annual Christmas dinner at the Knickerbocker Hotel. It’s not as though he has to enjoy himself.

At first sight, Maddie and Liam fall prey to insta-lust. If they can behave and endure the party, what presents will be waiting after that one winter night?

Maddie is being set up on a blind date by her friend, what she doesn't know is that this might be the one for her. After her childhood to college love left her after finding out she was pregnant, Maddie swore off men. So blind dates were out of the question. But is there a man out there for her?

Liam thought he had it all. A job in the family business, a woman to call his wife soon. That is, until he found out she was only out for his money and the power he could give her with him being president of the family business. Three years later, he is headed on a blind date which is going to the annual Christmas party.

When Liam and Maddie meet, the sparks fly and they just want to be alone. Liam hasn't had so much fun with a woman in forever. He just wants to touch her and unwrap her from that dress she is wearing.

Can Liam and Maddie build the fire and make a lasting relationship, or will it fizzle before the night is over?

This is a short, fun read and it will have you laughing at times. I think it is well worth the read if you have a little time to fill.

Both Maddie and Liam have been jilted in the past and neither is looking for a relationship or even a date. They are comfortable with what they have and dating is not in their plans, but their friends and family have different ideas. It is Christmastime and they want to see Liam and Maddie have a little fun. In the holiday spirit, Maddie agrees to meet Liam. They are both pretty shocked at the instant chemistry that brews between them. They find themselves actually having a really good time. Could this actually work out?

I had no problem getting through this one and found it to be a nice, quick, and entertaining read. It isn't for those who don't like insta-lust and insta-love, but for a romance fan just looking for something short, sweet, and sexy, this is a good choice.

Amabel Daniels lives in Northwest Ohio with her patient husband, adventurous toddler, smiley baby, and a collection of too many cats and dogs. Although she holds a Master’s degree in Ecology, her true love is finding a good book. When she isn’t spending time outdoors, or wondering how to negotiate with her mightily independent two-year-old daughter, she’s busy brewing up her next novel, usually as she lets her mind run off with the addictive words of “what if…”
