Genre: Contemporary Romance
Determined to conquer a lifetime of shyness, Harriet Knight challenges herself to do one thing a day in December that scares her, including celebrating Christmas without her family. But when dog walker Harriet meets her newest client, exuberant spaniel Madi, she adds an extra challenge to her list—dealing with Madi’s temporary dog sitter, gruff doctor Ethan Black, and their very unexpected chemistry.
Ethan thought he was used to chaos, until he met Madi—how can one tiny dog cause such mayhem? To Ethan, the solution is simple—he will pay Harriet to share his New York apartment and provide twenty-four-hour care. But there’s nothing simple about how Harriet makes him feel.
Ethan’s kisses make Harriet shine brighter than the stars over moonlit Manhattan. But when his dog-sitting duties are over and Harriet returns to her own home, will she dare to take the biggest challenge of all—letting Ethan know he has her heart for life, not just for Christmas?

Oh my god you guys, this was the most adorable book I’ve read in a long time! I don’t think I’ve been introduced to a cuter fictional couple in…well maybe ever actually. I absolutely adored every single page of this feel good read and am now a huge fan of Morgan and can’t wait to go back and read some of her earlier work.
Harriet was my idea of the perfect romantic comedy heroine. She’s cute, smart, kind and funny but she is far from perfect, they type of person any woman could relate to. I love the idea of challenging yourself to do things outside of your comfort zone and I so admired her courage. Ethan is the type of romantic lead that you can’t help but swoon over, he’s a handsome doctor for crying out loud but the cliches stop there. They were both extremely well developed and just so much fun! Their relationship progressed at a natural rate, no instant love or annoying, overused tropes to be found here, but their connection was undeniable, magical and flirty.
This had a whole lot of heart alongside some sass, there were also a few sexy moments and enough romance to knock me off of my feet. It’s set in NYC during the holidays, is there anything more romantic than that?! I think not. I can’t say enough good things about this one, it was perfection in my eyes and had exactly what I want when I’m in the mood for a romance and a surprising amount of depth and maturity that I wasn’t anticipating but I wholeheartedly appreciated.
Overall rating: 5/5
