The Billionaire's Christmas Proposal by Victoria James (Review)
Allie, is an internal optimist even after her world starts to crumble she still hopes for the best. Lets outline what is going wrong in her life before we continue: 1) Her building is pretty much burned down. 2) Her job is in jeopardy, because the landlord would like to sell the property. 3) Her mother is a piece of crap (that's being nice). 4) If it couldn't get any worse it happens during the Christmas season. Now a pessimist or a realist would be like well life just sucks or could things get any worst, not Allie. Fortunately, Allie has a good friend who takes her and her sister into his home. Oh yeah, she's taking care of her 16 year old sister (refer to three).
Now Ethan has been crushing on Allie since Jack and Hannah's wedding. The guy has asked Allie out like three times already, but he still holding out hope. Now that Allie needs his help, he sees his golden opportunity. However, there is a catch. He might be the cause of her losing her job, because he has been give a lucrative opportunity to get into the good graces of his father. Yay for getting back in his father good graces, ooh might lose the girl. Ethan has to make a choice and it's not an easy one, so he's trying to figure out a way to do both.
Love The Billionaire's Christmas Proposal, because we have two people who are highly attracted to one another. Yet, Allie is too afraid to go out of with Ethan, because important people in her life let her down. We don't find this out until we started to breakdown the characters. At the same time, Ethan is afraid to truly let people in due to health issues. Again, we don't find this out until we get to know each of the characters. A lot of the fun moments actually come from the interaction of Allie's snarky teenage sister. Actually, she puts things into perspective for Allie and Ethan, but you don't realize this. Overall, The Billionaire's Christmas Proposal is a great holiday read, because it helps us to remember what the holidays are truly meant to be.
