Publisher's Summary

Spending Christmas vacation with her father is part of Avery Baumann's plan - right between graduating with her MBA and starting her first real job alongside her successful boyfriend, Hayden. But it's a plan she's beginning to second-guess.
Architect Keenan Perry wants to design a plan of his own - one that includes Avery. If only it wasn't for their rocky history, secrets buried in his past, and that pesky boyfriend of hers.
As Avery and Keenan work side by side to rebuild a friend's home by Christmas, it may take more than a miracle for them to patch the past and build the future of their dreams, even if it isn't what they had planned.

Substance overcomes Flash once again...

This is a really sweet story. Avery and Keenan have a lot in common and that's evident from the very beginning. There's just one small fly in the ointment--Hayden. He is Avery's current boyfriend, apparently a successful yuppie who is a first-class jackass. He shows his true self soon enough and exits through the front door with a slam--all while Avery is suffering from a concussion. Nice guy...

Keenan has a bit of a past that comes to light later in the book. He's an incredibly nice guy that deserves better treatment than he initially receives after Avery finds out. She gets her act together rather quickly with the help of her father and a very understanding Keenan.

I didn't feel the 'hook' at the beginning of the story grab me like most do and it took me a couple starts to get past that point. Once the story took hold, however, it hung on for dear life. It's one you will truly enjoy--you just have to get past the bit of a slow start. The characters are fleshed out and quite believable. It is definitely one that I'll listen to over and over. Kudos to the author!

akward pauses were distracting

I enjoyed the story, but the narrator paused at times that were distracting. The reading didn't flow smoothly. Also having a person with a strong Texas accent try to voice a New England hipster was not successful. The story was interesting and I enjoyed it very much. The author gave me a free copy for an honest review.
