Title: Ring In The Holidays
Author: Katie Lane
Blurb: THE BEST NEW YEAR’S EVE . . . EVER
Psychologist Ellie Simpson is about to get a healthy dose of sex therapy. Leaving her cheating boyfriend behind, she has everything she needs for a quick rebound: Vegas, plenty of champagne, and a proposition from the sexiest man she’s ever seen. As her handsome stranger helps her ring in the New Year-over and over again-Ellie finds herself blissfully losing all of her inhibitions.
Attorney Matthew McPherson is good at making women lose things, like their minds and underwear. With his athletic build and soulful eyes, he doesn’t need to use his powers of persuasion or famous last name to get a woman into bed. But when morning comes, Matthew finds Ellie is the only woman he can’t bear to leave-ever. It’s enough to make him wonder if what happens in Vegas really has to stay there.
Thoughts: Parts of this book I really liked, and then parts of it were just all over the place. Ellie and Matthew were cute together and the craziness of their first meeting just really caught you from the beginning and kept you reading. I enjoyed the psychology aspect of it and why Ellie believed the things she did regarding abstinence and relationships – and I think it played interestingly into the story.
There were just unadmirable traits about both of them at different points in the story that irked me, and then a point where they decide that they want to be ‘friends’ – which (ironically) is when I started liking it even better. It was pretty good, but not really a ‘keeper’ for me.
