A sizzling, standalone, feel-good holiday romance from Tessa Bailey, New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Summer.
Two weeks before Christmas and all through Manhattan, shop windows are decorated in red and green satin.
I'm standing alone in front of the famous Vivant department store, when a charming man named Aiden asks my opinion of the décor.
It's a tragedy in tinsel, I say, unable to lie.
He asks for a better idea with a twinkle in his eye.
Did I know he owned the place? No. He put me on the spot.
Now I'm working for that man, trying to ignore that he's hot.
But as a down on her luck girl with a difficult past, I know an opportunity when I see one—and I have to make it last.
I'll put my heart and soul into dressing his holiday windows.
I'll work without stopping. And when we lose the battle with temptation, I'll try and remember I'm just window shopping.
I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
As soon as I heard Tessa Bailey was writing a Christmas book, I knew I needed to get my hands on it right away. Then, I heard she was doing the sunshine and grump trope, and I knew this book was PERFECT for me.
Ladies and gentlemen, my fellow romance lovers, Window Shopping by Tessa Bailey is the must-read holiday book for 2021. On the surface, Stella and Aiden couldn’t be more different. He radiates positivity and charm; he’s the embodiment of sunshine. Meanwhile, Stella is quiet, reserved, and not very trusting. She is determined to turn over a new leaf and start a new life for herself when she runs into Aiden. Aiden is immediately intrigued and smitten. Stella thinks he’s too cheerful, plus he wears bowties. So not her type…or is it?
Watching these two characters interact is such a joy. Their dynamic is perfection. Seriously. Tessa Bailey never fails to deliver. Stella and Aiden are a couple you won’t soon forget. They’re so sweet together. They truly see each other for who they are, not simply the person they let the world see.
I cannot recommend this book enough. This book had me smiling from ear to ear! I know I’ll be rereading it once it gets closer to Christmas. I can’t get enough of these two! I need more books where the girl is the grump, and the guy is the sunshine character. It’s too good.
