Never Fall for Your Enemy (especially not at Christmas)

Three things I know for sure:

1) I hate Charlie Cavendish

2) I hate Charlie Cavendish
3) Oh, and did I mention I hate Charlie Cavendish?

Rich. Over-privileged. Smug. The guy’s far too good looking or his own good and he’s always got that smirk teasing at the edges of his mouth, telling me what he thinks of me.

And now, my worst nightmare has come true.

Charles Cavendish has moved into my building which means I can’t avoid seeing him everywhere I go.  He’s always there, judging me, especially when I come in late at night. Hey, I can’t help it if my “single American girl in London” writing gig means I’ve got to check out every new club in town. Charles is so tightly wound he goes to work before the birds have chirped their first good morning.

He needs to loosen up.  Live a little. Actually, I don’t care what he does, just as long as he does it nowhere near me. Because I hate him with the heat of a thousand suns. And I always will.

Only now I’m stuck in an elevator with him.

On Christmas Eve.


What’s the worst that could happen?

I highly recommend this book.” – Amazon reviewer
