The Office Christmas Party - by Aimee Duffy

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Natalie Taylor and Dean Fletcher are serial Christmas party crashers. But when they start crashing the same parties, the mittens are off!
As much as she loves Christmas, after her mother’s death, events planner Nat can’t face the jolly season anymore. So to get her festive hit she crashes everyone else’s party. It’s a sweet gig, until she meets her competition, tech empire millionaire, Dean, under the mistletoe…!
When it comes to relationships, Dean doesn’t do serious—being left at the altar will do that to a guy. So when he meets feisty Nat, the first woman in ten years to pique his interest, he’s tempted to break his one-night rule…just for the holidays!
Nat and Dean might get more than they bargained for in their stockings this Christmas!

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

I don’t actually know how to start this review, because on one hand I like the book and on the other hand I didn’t.

The story follows Natalie Taylor and Dean Fletcher. Natalie is done with relationships and she doesn’t like the time around Christmas, so she starts crashing Christmas parties. Dean is not a man for a serious relationship, due to things that happened in his past, but then he meets Natalie. The funny thing: he is a party crasher too.

Unfortunately, the story is very predictable and there were many parts I didn’t like in the plot. It didn’t have a smooth flow for me and I didn’t like how the story developed. I usually don’t mind predictable, but here something was off for me.

The steamy and hot scenes were a bit too much for me, because it was way more than I expected and it kind of overtook the whole atmosphere. Aimee Duffy’s writing style is entertaining and fresh.
