The after-party…for two!
Breanna Black has turned throwing parties into an art form–raising the roof is the best way to banish the shadows of her past, and she’s not interested in anyone spoiling her fun. Especially her infuriatingly uptight, sinfully sexy new neighbor, Leo Hamilton! Still, Brie doesn’t care easily…and she dares brooding businessman Leo to abandon his spreadsheets for just one evening!
But Leo his own reasons for accepting his smoking-hot neighbor’s invitation! He’s hoping he’ll be the only guest at the after-party…and he doesn’t intend to leave until morning!
Brie’s story hadn’t fully formed in my mind when I began writing my last book, Mistletoe Not Required, where Brie makes her first appearance. Brie supported her friend Olivia when she had to make some heart-wrenching decisions. Likewise, Olivia was there for Brie as Brie struggled to improve her relationship with long-lost brother, Jett.
Because that’s what friends are for.
From the start, Olivia’s party-loving friend was demanding to be noticed-so much so that I had to promise her a book of her own, and here it is.
Digging into Brie’s past to find out why she’s such an attention-seeker was the fun part-giving her a worthy opponent even more so.
Leo Hamilton is a short-term, casual kind of guy when it comes to women and relationships. His brutal past and consequent responsibilities have made him a bit of a control freak, and this aspect of his personality immediately clashes with Brie’s sassy independence.
He’s also a man of integrity-as Brie is about to find out for herself…
