The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

3 Stars

Willa Davis is a pet shop owner with a heart of gold. Beautiful but unlucky in love, Willa devotes her time and attention to her friends and the animals that visit her store for supplies. When a frustrated Keane Winters approaches Willa's store in hopes of finding a pet sitter for his great-aunt's Feline from Hell, he's immediately taken with the owner...and has no idea why she reacts to him with such distaste. 

The last thing Willa wants during the busy holiday season is a run-in with the boy who left her heartbroken after a dance in high school--not to mention Keane doesn't even remember her. But Keane's cat needs her...and who can resist helping an innocent animal? As Willa and Keane's lives slowly become entangled, Willa sees that Keane is different than he was in high school...but has he changed enough for Willa to take another chance on him? Only time and well-placed mistletoe will tell!

Well the good news is - I didn't hate it! It was OK as far as romances go. I would call this a true romance. So if that is your thing - this is for you! I just don't think it was "my thing". Personally, I like a little more other stuff going on in my romances. This was mostly all about the romance - how attracted they were to each other, how hot they thought each other was, how they wanted each other but was afraid to commit... all this with a little bit of Christmas thrown in.

There was good character development - I just didn't really love either one! The one character I did love was - Petunia, the cat! AKA - PITA, as Keane called her. But then again I am a cat person. I loved all the trouble this certain cat was causing. She was adorable and I just wanted to hug her! 

For those of you who are Romance junkies (and don't mind some sex and a little swearing) you would probably love this for your Christmas reading!
