A slow-burn, friends-to-lovers standalone holiday romance

The bad guy never gets the girl.

In the eyes of the law, I’ve paid for my youthful mistakes but I know I can never undo the damage I’ve caused. When I stepped out of my cell, I vowed to live a good life, make the right choices, and avoid temptation at all costs.

Until her.

She’s not a choice, she’s a compulsion. A craving. A beautiful, brave heroine who walked straight off the pages of the comic books I create and into my life with the superpower of making me believe I could be the man she deserves.

But I’m not.

She wants to tell the world about us this Christmas, including her father—my boss. But before she does, I need to tell her the truth.

Can I possibly stay her hero when she finds out that I used to be the villain?

*Originally a short in the Mistletoe Over Manhattan Anthology and now expanded to more than double the story.

Author Stephanie Rose delivered!

This story started as short in the Mistletoe Over Manhattan Anthology last year and I had fallen in love with Anthony & Victoria's story when I read it.

This book gives you all the feels and I liked that we got more of their story.

You will fall for Anthony because he is so cute with his humor and love for comics and super heros who he finds in when he meets Victoria.

Victoria I loved right off the bat because she is a strong young woman.

The relationship of friends to lovers was refreshing to read.

I liked the development of them getting to know each other and their insecurities in regards to their feelings for one another.

Anthony had me wanting to hug him and let him know it was okay to let his feelings for Victoria be more than friends.

The emotions poured off the pages and I felt all the warm and fuzzies of their story.

I loved it.

Perfect Holiday story to curl up with.
