  • ‘A super cute, heart-warming, second-chance holiday romance.’ NetGalley reviewer, ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

    Falling in love can sometimes go off-piste…

    There’s never a good time to bump into your ex – so Maya Bashir is shocked when she comes face to face with her old flame Sam Holland, who is wearing nothing but a tiny apron, working as a naked butler at her friend’s Christmas party.

    Having driven home for the holidays after losing her boyfriend, flat and job – and dreading her father’s inevitable disappointment that she still doesn’t have a fifty-year plan – perhaps Sam is exactly the distraction Maya needs.

    But as sparks begin to fly, Maya doesn’t know if she can let Sam back into her heart so easily… With Christmas day fast approaching, will Maya find love or disaster under the tree?

    For fans of Sophie Cousens and Mhairi McFarlane comes a hilarious Christmas romance that will warm your heart this winter! If you love:

    🎄 Enemies to lovers

    🎄 Second-chance romance

    🎄 An adorable meet-cute

    🎄 City girl/small hometown

    Then you will LOVE The Ex-mas Holidays!
