Workaholic attorney Max Robertson is one meeting away from making partner at a big NYC firm when his best friend calls and guilts him into coming back home for Christmas. But there's a reason he hasn't been back to Edgewood for a decade—too many bad memories. The plan was to go for just one night, until a wild deer and a snow bank wrecked everything.

Former Army Sergeant Dominic "Nicky" Bell is the new guy on the Edgewood police force, so of course he drew the short straw and is stuck working the night shift. But his evening gets turned upside-down when he gets called out to a wreck in the snow—and it's his one and only high school crush, looking even sexier than he did back then.

When they both end up stranded together at Dominic's house, sparks start to fly and Max isn't sure what to do. But everyone deserves a present this holiday season, right?

HIS HOLIDAY CRUSH is a holiday romance that would left the reader with a big smile, from its sweet cover to its end.

One night at his best friend's house should be enough for Max, to show him his suport and not risking losing the deal, that might give him the change make partner at his firm. But a wreck in the snow is endangering his plans, and when Dominic, a local police force, comes to the rescue, Max might not be so interested in follow them anymore.

I had a wonderful time with this book. I am amazed by the versatility of the author, who I'd read before, in books that are a complitely oposite from this one. It was a great experience this book was charming but it wasn't overly sweet, which would be bothersone to me. I liked the writing. The plot was nice. It was easy to catch the attention, but not really too unexpected.

I loved the main characters, maybe they were a bit too perfect for me, but I guess the general good guy feeling might be appreciate by most readers. I love that, even as nice as they were, they still have their internal struggles. I guess that is the reason I liked them so much.

The romance between them feels right. It was developed in only few days, and yet, didn't felt rushed. It also had the right amount of heat that made it enjoyable, without sex scenes being the whole center of the story.

I didn't liked that some parts of it were a little predictable, but I guess it is sometimes that way when reading romance. I still found the book really charming and it left me with a big smile on my face. Definitely a recomended book, particularly for readers who are trying to get into the holiday feeling.
