Ford Aston is not too picky about what he wants out of Christmas. He's not into this holiday - like at all. He doesn't do presents or family dinners or parties or church.
He does pets. And he's got one lined up for Christmas Eve. In fact it's the highlight of his day. And if he can get through drop-in visits, nosy 12-year-olds, an inappropriate conversation with his best friend's girlfriend, dinner with a family that's not his, and a party at his mother's house - well, he might just get home in time to enjoy himself with a stranger and make it all okay.
Ford Aston is known for many things. Being an emotionless, messed up bastard, a freakishly smart social outcast, and a cold, domineering master who keeps "pets" instead of girlfriends.
And after Rook broke his heart, he plans to keep it that way.
Ashleigh is known for nothing, and that's exactly what she's got going for her. She's broke and stranded in the mountains with a three-month-old baby, and Ford Aston is screwing with her head.
And she plans to mess with his right back.
It's a coy game at first, filled with flirting and innuendo - but Ford soon realizes something is not quite right with Ashleigh. In fact something is seriously, seriously wrong, and the closer they get to their final destination, the closer Ford gets to the truth.
One night of devastation, self-loathing, and emptiness turns into the best thing that ever happened to Ford Aston. But one day of in-your-face reality threatens Ashleigh's whole existence.

Liked but a little slow at first and has BDSM!
I really liked it for the most part but beware it is several chapters in before the H and h even meet so the first several chapters were a little slow for me - just Ford running all around town oddly which was boring to me. Therefore, for me, it didn't draw me in right away. And I will say I am not at all interested in BDSM and this has it. I hated the whole "pets" thing - and no we are not talking about four legged pets. That part was very degrading to women in general. With all that, I am surprised I gave the story four stars but it is because I liked the book after the H and h met - up until then, not so much. I downgraded it to four for the first part of the book. I considered giving it three just due to the BDSM and the pets thing but the rest kind of made up some for that.
The performance was fine so no problem there.
Troy Duran is Outstanding!
