No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A sassy, short holiday romance jam-packed with hipster angst and Southern charm!

Erin Posey is on a mission to deck her barren halls in advance of her discerning mother’s holiday arrival. She’s got less than a day to get her little house into tip-top shape and has no time for distractions. When she meets a flirtatious salesman named Halle at a Christmas tree lot who not only goes easy on her empty wallet, but who’s also easy on her eyes, her plans for a productive evening fly out the window. Erin doesn’t even care. Who needs a decorated tree when you can have a holiday hook-up with a hottie instead?

Halle cares. He’s a no-nonsense, take-charge kind of guy who understands family politics all too well. When he’s not spreading holiday cheer for his family’s corporation, he teaches at the state university. He’s a man with money who wants to make his own way in the world, much to his mother’s despair.

Halle’s practical, so won’t let Erin spoil her own mother’s arrival, but that doesn’t mean he’s completely proof to her charms. He’s happy to set up Erin’s tree, but maybe he wants her in a way that has nothing to do with good customer service, too.

*This story contains colorful language and adult situations. That means cussin' and sexual content, y'all.*
