After the death of her husband, Celia grew extremely close to her husbands best friend Damien. She has always considered him a close friend of the family and an adoptive uncle to her young son. But in the last few months she has started to see Damien in a different light. She finds him extremely attractive and loves the way he helps take care of her son.
When both Celia and Damien are caught beneath a mistletoe at a family Christmas party, they exchange a brief kiss. The kiss is explosive and is just what they both have been secretly wanting from one another. Later, when Damien informs Celia of his decision to leave at the end of the year, she knows that she can't let him leave. She has to let him know of her true feelings for him.
This was a quick and charming read. I enjoyed both Damien and Celia and thought that they were explosive together. Both had so many pent up feelings, so it was great to see them let their walls come down and be honest with one another.
