Mine Under the Mistletoe by Kat LathamThanks to a transatlantic house swap, California girl Ashley Turner is finally going to fulfill her lifelong dream of a proper English Christmas. Her holiday plans did not include a sexy stranger climbing into her borrowed bed in the middle of the night. But in the light of day, Ashley can't help but wonder if Santa has delivered early...
Game designer Oliver Stansfeld can't wait to leave dreary London—and all its difficult holiday memories—for sunny San Diego. But a freak ice storm and a grounded plane have forced him back to his already-occupied flat. To make up for the mix-up, the least he can do is show his pretty houseguest where to get the perfect Christmas tree before he leaves.
The more time they spend together, the more their attraction grows, and soon Ashley is tempting Oliver to give in to the spirit of the season and snuggle up for the rest of the winter. As the ice melts and flights start taking off again, he must choose between giving in to the past or risking his heart on a chance at love.


   Ashley was fulfilling her life’s dream, she had saved for five years to be able to do it.  She was doing a home swap with Oliver, her to London and him to San Diego.  But…there was a bit of a problem.  Although Ashley was able to make it to London and safely to Oliver’s home.  Oliver was snowed in unable to leave all flights were grounded.  So, back home he goes to his home.

     If only he had called first.  I am sure he is rethinking that action now.  You see Ashley is a young, single woman from the United States.  Not any state but California and she is very capable of caring for herself even when she’s half asleep.  As he so harshly finds out.  Can begin to guess what happens when she wakes with a start to find a strange fully naked man in her bed?  And she acts instead of reacts…Oliver couldn’t blame her.  He thought her flight never made it in since his never made it out.  You see he was trying to leave the memories behind for Christmas.  California on the beach where it’s warm and no memories of what and who he lost was the ticket.

     The next morning though sparks something in Oliver her never thought he would ever feel again, hope.  But, it was conflicting with the memories.  So, now what you will have to do is read and see where and if it takes these two anywhere.  For me the way the book ended felt incomplete.  I liked it better before the epilogue.  Who said that?  Did I say that?  I can’t believe I did since most of the time I am the one who wants and epilogue.  For this book I think the author did it an injustice.  That’s why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com
