'Tis the season for an office romance!
Working beyond nine to five and barely getting by, Melanie Thomas is eager to celebrate the impending holiday season and to toast the start of her dream marketing job over drinks with her boyfriend. Unfortunately, he has different plans—like seeing other women.
Indulging in a pity party with tequila, Melanie confides in a sexy stranger at the bar. It’s almost Christmas, one night of letting go won’t hurt anything, right? Turns out it just might—when the stranger is her new boss. Determined to succeed at her job, Melanie won’t be scared away. This is her chance, even if her hot boss has her feeling all merry and bright and wishing for a less than professional relationship.
Matthew Ryans is burned out and on thin ice at the company he helped build unless he gets his head back in the game. Yet, his head, both upper and lower, are quickly becoming obsessed with his new assistant. Still, he can’t seem to fully begrudge Melanie’s distracting presence and the Christmas joy she brings with it. Especially considering that her enthusiasm has him reenergized. For once, he is longing for Mondays, but with his heart and job on the line he can’t risk blurring the lines no matter how strong the lure of holiday mistletoe is.
Will their holiday passion be able to fuel mutual career success, or will it only get in their way in the New Year?

My review: Melanie Thomas knew there was trouble when a woman answered her boyfriend’s phone at night. Uh-oh! Of course, you know how that ended.
Perhaps she was too wrapped in climbing the corporate ladder that she failed to be an attentive girlfriend. That same night, Melanie meets a dashing stranger and wakes up with him the next morning. Uh-oh! But she couldn’t think about her mistake or her bad break-up; she had a career in the marketing firm to think about.
The first day of her new job, she finds that her new boss is actually her one-night stand. Yikes!
After a few freak-out moments, they eventually both settled to forgetting about the whole thing and be professional since they had to work together now. But how could they forget?
Story was pretty good. There were some lagging areas, especially concerning the office politics and the work. It had some witty commentary, and I enjoyed their debate on who was tougher—Batman or Superman.
Nice office romance!
