When reality show producer Sophia is assigned to convince Christmas fanatic Will to be on their holiday special, she imagines him to be an oddball momma’s boy wearing a reindeer Christmas sweater. What she doesn’t expect is the handsome, mysterious man who captures her attention, and seems determined to win her heart.
Their attraction is undeniable, and as charming Sophia convinces Will to work with her, she slowly unwraps the secrets in his past that make this determined and soulful man still yearn for the childhood he never had.
When the chaos of production starts, will Sophia be able to keep her promises to protect Will from being exploited, or will the bitter truth of reality television be a runaway train of disaster for both of them?
Join Sophia, Will and his dog Romeo to enter the world of his enchanting holiday house where stars shine indoors and snow is always falling…365 days of the year.
"Love is an explosive crash on a collision course of desire and expectation. Even in its quietest moments, when your lives easily braid together like the plaits in a girls hair, there's still darkness lingering."
I am a total sucker for a love story. Make it a Christmas love story and you have me hook line and sinker!! I am absolutely GLUED to the Hallmark Channel during Christmas. When I had the opportunity to read 'Mr. 365' by Ruth Clampett and I read the synopsis, I thought to myself "This is right up my alley!"
The story did not disappoint! I loved every minute of it! Who would not just fall in love with a tall, dark and handsome man whose heart is made of gold? One who is NOT too good to be true? Sophia is hired to produce a reality television special on Will and his so-called 'obsession' with not only Christmas but his giving ways. What she doesn't know, is that her staff is going to go behind her back to make Will look like a fool on national television in order to boost the audience and their ratings. Will she stand behind the man that she comes to love and risk her job? Or will she cave in to peer and professional pressure in order to boost ratings?
I just fell in love with this story and the writing was so clear and concise that I could just mentally picture the scenes like they were jumping out in front of me! If you are in the Christmas spirit and want a good read, this is well worth your money and time! - Kelly
