Snow's falling, carolers are singing, and holiday lights are twinkling. It's the most wonderful time of the year to get out of the friend zone...
At least that's what Mike is hoping. But his best friend, Thea, is seriously lacking in holiday spirit. In fact, she's hot-and-bothered in the wrong way when her ex steals her entry in the Festival of Trees competition. Now, she needs to find the Best Tree Ever so she can win the competition before her florist shop loses business.
The catch? Thea's using this opportunity to exert her independence and stand up for herself, but Mike can't pass up the chance to play Secret Santa and lend her a helping hand.
Such an expression of holiday giving couldn't possibly backfire, right?
|A fun and fast read about two friends that want to be friends but also have feelings for the other one. Thea is trying to get into the Christmas spirit but it is difficult for when her ex stole her entry into the festival of trees. Now still upset with herself allowing her ex to still get to her, Mike her best friend tells her that she can decorate his firm's entry into the festival.
