The whole town is ready for the holidays: The Cookie Club is baking, Main Street glitters with lights, the carolers sing.... There's even a Christmas wedding.
When bodyguard Ryder Southerland sees his best friend's sister, Katie, at an LA Christmas party, he mistakes the slinky blonde for a celebrity stalker and tackles her. Then they tackle each other at his place. The next morning Katie's gone, and Ryder tells himself it's for the best. It isn't. Now, one Christmas later, Ryder's falling for the woman he's been missing in the town he hasn't missed at all.
Katie Cheek's outgrown the romantic fantasies she had about Ryder when she was 15. Katie's packed their hot night away in a box labeled "fling" - or tried to. But Twilight's bad boy is the best man in her brother's wedding. And up close and personal, Ryder's impossible to ignore. So Katie can either go into hiding - or surrender to Christmas magic.

I always love hearing the story read outloud. It makes the story more real and like I'm watching a movie in my head.
I loved being able to go back to Twilight, Texas and revisit characters from other books in the series. It is always fun to catch up on what everyone is doing with each new story.
She gave it that Texas Twang that made it so much fun to listen to.
The scene where Ryder finally admits how he feels and what he wants for the rest of his life. Great ending!
