Last night, Anna Gardner was the life of the office Christmas party—right up until she threw herself at gorgeous advertising executive playboy, Hugh Munro. Again. Last year, Hugh let her pretend their passionate kiss never happened, but this year he’s determined to make Anna admit she wants him as much as he wants her. 

Except, Hugh doesn't know the office party is the only night of the year his friend lets her hair down. That every hour she’s away from the office is spent caring for her sickly mother. That her mother’s condition, early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, is hereditary.

When Hugh finds out what she’s been hiding, he’s forced to do some serious soul-searching. It's not fair to Anna or her mother for him to get involved casually, but casual relationships are all he knows. Can he prove to himself—and to Anna—that she’s all he wants for Christmas?


Anna has put her life on hold to look after her Mother Irene, who is suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's.  She has pushed people away for so long that she's forgotten what friendship and love is all about. Until Hugh finds out her secret and does everything in his power to try and help her.

This was such a cute story!  With short stories and novellas, the authors have to cram so much into the story in such a short period of time.  Ros Clarke did an incredible job with her these characters.  They were extremely well written, so filled with emotion and depth.  I loved it!

I don't want to give away anything in the story!  For those who love a sweet, clean, quick read - this is a story for you.  And of course being the holidays it's the perfect book to curl up with a cup of hot coco and snuggle up in a warm blanket.

Ros is a new author for me, but I will definitely be checking out some of her other titles!

Thank you to Entangled for sending Ros my way!
