Dilyn Hart hates Christmas, so when her boss (and ex-boyfriend) hands her an assignment to interview champion snowboarder and gorgeous playboy extraordinaire, Dash Grainger, on Christmas Eve, she takes it. There are several things she doesn’t plan for—a surly driver, a chalet in the middle of nowhere, a freak snowstorm—but the biggest surprise of all is Dash himself.

Dash Grainger lives for the high, and so far in his twenty-six years, he’s never met anyone or anything he loves more. Nothing has ever thrilled him as much as slick snow, cold air, and breakneck speed.

Until he meets Dilyn.

But one perfect night doesn’t mean clear, blue skies the next day. There are some storms that can’t be weathered.

Christmas Day might just be one of them.

What a fun, sweet and sexy Christmas tale this turned out to be! Although it was a short read I felt that the author did a fantastic job of creating the world and fleshing out the characters. I genuinely liked both of them, and even though their chemistry was immediate, it didn't feel forced.

Dilyn was still nursing an aching heart after her ex broke up with her two years ago. That ex was her current boss and sent her to get a story at a time of year that was difficult for her. What she didn't expect was to find the adrenalin junkie attractive, and to have a spark that she couldn't deny. Dash, well he was a piece of heaven! Sexy, confident and smart. He knew what he wanted and despite what promises he made, was determined to have Dilyn.

These two were amazing together! The chemistry felt real and even when things were difficult between them, I could feel that they were both hurting. In true M. Leighton style, she pieced together a believable story that made you fall in love, along with the characters. It wasn't always easy for them, but I was eager to see them get through to find each other once again. And that epilogue... made my heart ache, but I was left with a huge smile on my face!

Ahhh! There were a few good teasers to share... especially the deconstructed s'more scene, but I thought this was kind of sweet too!

“It doesn’t have to be anything you don’t want it to be. I won’t deny that I’m attracted to you. Holy shit, am I attracted to you. And I won’t deny that I could list a dozen things in ten seconds or less that I’d love to do to you on a cold, snowy night in front of a fire. But I’m not a mindless, horny teenager. I can appreciate the company of a smart, sassy, beautiful woman, enjoying good food and good drink on the side of a mountain in a storm. This night can be whatever you want it to be. Just...stay.”
