A very cute and quirky romance for Christmas time. This was a fun, quick read that is perfect to curl up in front of the fireplace with. A nice twist on the typical boy meets girl in the country setting. In this short novella, country girl , Emma goes to the big city for a social media contest and meets a super sexy and sweet city boy. Emma steps out of her comfort zone to enjoy her time in the big city after her ex boyfriend said she wouldn't be safe alone there. I really enjoyed this novella and look forward to reading more by this author. Super cute, feel good romance that deserves a 5 star!
