Novella November: Holiday Sparks by Shannon Stacey

Holiday Sparks

Holiday Sparks by Shannon Stacey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


House-sitting for her parents seemed like a good idea, until the microwave blew up and the lights went out. Now Chloe Burke thinks upgrading the electrical system of her childhood home while they are away would make the perfect Christmas gift. Fortunately, there's an electrician in town who can get the job done by the holidays. Scott Quinn has wanted to get his hands on the Burkes' wiring for almost as long as he's wanted to get his hands on their daughter. Chloe didn't notice Scott back in high school, but she's noticing him now, and soon they're indulging in a little festive fun: no strings, no expectations. After all, Chloe plans to get out of this goldfish bowl of a town and back to her real life in Boston by New Year's. But Chloe and Scott discover they enjoy each other's company just as much out of bed. Could their holiday fling turn out to be the real thing? 

I listened to this on audio as it was part of the Naughty or Nice anthology made free to audible members last year except this was the only novella on the audio :( I thought I was getting 9 hours worth but instead it was only 2 hrs and 4 minutes. I loved the narrator and the story however I would've loved it if it were a full length novel too.

I loved Chloe and Scott and his dog. I had to chuckle because she was jealous of the dog assuming the dog knew more about Scott then she did lol It reminded me of the lyrics of that Shania Twain song :
When the moon's in your eyes--
you seem to light up the skies, yeah
And I realize--
I'm even jealous of the moon

*sigh . I loved it.
