If she has her way ...

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her ...

He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him ...

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice ...

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work ...

In this second book in the Heartbreaker Bay series, Willa is getting ready to go home for the night from her dog boutique, when a man knocks on the door holding a sparkly pink cat carrier. This man is Keane Winters, the boy who stood her up for Homecoming in high school. And the worst part is that he doesn’t even remember it. Or Willa. *ouch*

Keane is absolutely smitten with Willa, but he can’t figure out why she gives him the cold shoulder. But it doesn’t matter, because he needs her help with his aunt’s cat. That and he wants to see her again. He can tell she doesn’t like him, but he can also tell that she wants him. And he can work with that.

Their chemistry is off the charts, and they wind up spending a lot of time together. Willa finally caves and tells Keane why she’s been so standoffish toward him, and he’s floored. He doesn’t even remember her, but he wants to get to know her now. Of course, it’s not that simple. She may be willing to sleep with him, but she’s not ready for a relationship. And Keane isn’t either, or so he thought…

Between the banter, the fun cast of friends, and the chemistry between Willa and Keane, this book is definitely a great read!
