Mistletoe in the City by Amber Daulton

Genre New Adult Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG 13

Krista Hartley never expected the unrequited love of her life, the irresistible Derek Weston, to work as the groundskeeper at the apartment building she just moved into. They barely spoke in high school but now, three years after graduation, they tore at each other’s clothes and jumped into bed together at every opportunity. After all, how could a hot-blooded woman say no to a sexy man with an eyebrow ring, a dragon tattoo and a deadly swagger?

A Christmas miracle drew Krista back into Derek’s life. He kissed her for the first time under mistletoe, pampered her with romantic candlelight dinners and memorized every inch of her delectable body with his tongue. He refused to let his dream girl slip through his fingers again but then another woman threatened their whirlwind romance. Hurt once before, Krista broke off their relationship and then Derek made a drunken mistake that could destroy their love forever.

With just days to Christmas, he vowed to win back her heart and trust, and prove his innocence once and for all.

Not really. The plot and characters came together fairly easily, which is always a relief.

you did research for this book?

Of course. Research is a must, no matter the genre or type of story. I had a blast researching the artsy neighborhoods in Seattle, where the story takes place, and since Krista is into arts and crafts, I found a bunch of cool pictures and projects on Pinterest.
