THE TWELVE DATES OF CHRISTMAS
She can get her career on track…as long as she follows the rules and not her heart.
Eloise works as a temp at a law firm. Feeling bored at work and sick of low pay, she’s considering leaving the job for a new one. That’s when she meets handsome businessman Ricky at her friend’s party. He asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend in return for helping her find a new job. She accepts the offer—she is, after all, about to default on her rent. She’ll attend twelve parties with Ricky before Christmas and she isn’t allowed to fall for him. How hard could it be?

I liked the message of the story about how letting the pain of your past haunt you to become a hermit that keep everyone away and how Christmas helps you heal. It just felt to me a little redundant with these Christmas stories about men who say, "Bah Humbug" over anything Christmas and it takes positive women who have a lot of baggage over the years to get them change on Christmas day or after Christmas day. The hero hires the poor heroine to be his shield of not attending parties and staying away from all the Christmas cheer because it reminds him of his little boy whom he lost because the child's birth mother was driving under the influence. He also deems himself to be unhappy because he couldn't protect his little boy because he thought the little boy needed his mother. Unfortunately, the hero can't help but be infected with the heroine's bright personality and sad past for him to slowly open up to her. She also helps him see how rude he's been acting to family, friends, and employees. For example, he apologizes to his secretary for being rude with his tone of voice and the secretary comments that's how he usually acts. The heroine doesn't push him for answers when she sees him in pain and waits for him to open up, while she comforts him. Eventually, he does reveal his son's story and his heart starts to get big. Yet, he's afraid of it and ends his relationship with the heroine. He finally goes to see his family who give him the encouragement to go back and beg the heroine for another chance. I really did like how it built up to the wedding and it was enjoyable. I just felt that it was a little tiring to read the same theme for a different harlequin story.
