She needs a fake boyfriend for the Christmas party. The problem? She’s my boss.
I should never have agreed to be her fake boyfriend.
But she is smokin’ hot and I needed a date to the Christmas party.
There are rules to being a fake boyfriend, and I’m sure I’ve broken all of them.
Kissing your fake date under the mistletoe?
Keeping her warm after the limo breaks down?
How could I not?
Making her jerk of an ex-fiance jealous?
Yeah, that was fun.
But, falling in love with your boss?
I’m pretty sure that’s going to get me on Santa’s naughty list.

Light and cute with a smidge of Christmas
This is the 5th book in The Billionaires of Torver Corporation Series but can be read completely as a standalone. Characters from the other books do pop up, and mention things from their own books – but just in a way that makes you want to read their stories rather than make you confused!
Despite the blurb, this is very much Sabryna’s story and is told entirely in first person from her point of view. Because of this, we really get to know Sabryna and all her feelings and secrets. She was a very likeable characters – honest, forthright and endearingly confused about what she should do for best. And I have to give a special nod to when Logan takes off his short in her office. Very funny reactions!
Speaking of Logan – he was a cutie. A very hot cutie. He was that delicious blend of sexy, slightly arrogant, in-charge male with the heart and sometime mannerisms of a geeky nerd. Loved him. I’m going to confess that before I saw the cover of this book (which I only saw after I’d read the book), I thought that he was black. Not that it matters, but I’m not sure if it was my mistake or if the characters weren’t described much.
There were a few potentially heavy topics in this book, as short as it was. The earlier death of Sabryna’s fiance, Nate*, and cheating being the main two. However, it was done with a light touch and never felt overly dramatic or heavy. Perfect for a quick read.
There was a teeny bit of Christmas festivities – I loved the depictions of snow and the Christmas party – but not too much that would overshadow the romance.
I liked the style of the book and of Ms. Wynter. The pages kept turning and the writing was conversational and free. Fresh, light and fun with just a smidge of Christmas – this is a book you could happily get lost in on a cold, wintery afternoon. 4 stars from me.
⚠️ Fair warning to those who’ve previously read One Perfect Professor / or spoiler for those that haven’t: That book is the love story of Sabryna and Nate. Yes, Sabryna from this story where she ends up with Logan. I’m so glad I hadn’t read One Perfect Professor before this book because it’s so not cool to kill off the hero of a previous novel. So not cool. But I’m not letting this affect my rating of this book since I didn’t find out this tidbit until after I’d finished.
