This winter, ex-skiing champion, reformed heartbreaker and single dad Tyler O'Neil has only one mission—making sure his daughter, Jess, has the best Christmas ever. The fact that his best friend, Brenna, is also temporarily moving into his chalet at the overbooked Snow Crystal resort is a delicious distraction he's simply going to have to ignore. Theirs is the one relationship he's never ruined, and he's not about to start now.
Ski pro Brenna Daniels knows all about the perils of unrequited love—she's been in love with Tyler for years. But living with him is absolute torture…how can she concentrate on being his friend when he's sleeping in the room next door? Then when Tyler kisses Brenna, suddenly the relationship she's always dreamed of feels so close she could almost touch it. Could this be the Christmas her dreams of a happy-ever-after finally come true?
Tyler and Brenna sitting in a tree, K I S S I N G...oh forget that. Plenty of trees, but no kissing. They are best friends, but damn she wants more.
It was a sweet holiday romance, but it also packed some serious issues in there too. Tyler needs to find the fun in working again as his ski career was destroyed in one awful fall. He has spent a year re-connecting with his daughter, but there is always room for improvement. And the last issue is bullying, which Brenna saw her fair share of in school and the lasting scars are still there.
But now to the fun things! They are best friends, but she wants more. He has always been a total player, while she is shy and has not played around much. She just wanted him from start but alas, he has never seen her like that. Stupid man, she is nice, hot and can ski. Go for it!
Obviously something will happen that takes it from friend to love, and obviously they will live happily ever after. He just needs to see that she is awesome, and she, well she needs to let him.
Cute, fun, and it made me wish for xmas..now ;)
