ARC Review: Millionaire Under the Mistletoe by Stefanie London

Title: Millionaire Under the Mistletoe

Author: Stefanie London

Synopsis:

It’s so nice when he’s naughty.

Stella Jackson would rather stab herself in the eye with her own stiletto than return to England. Especially in winter. But to fulfill her grandfather’s last wish, she has to spend Christmas at the estate she inherited from him…with the one man she wishes she could forget.

Self-made millionaire Evan Foss wants one thing from Stella—her estate. But thanks to their rocky past, he’s the last person she’ll sell to. So when she takes him up on a bet, with the estate as the prize, Evan can’t believe his luck. The only problem is that seeing her now, sexy and all grown up, tempts Evan to finish what started years ago between them.

***MY REVIEW***

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

Stefanie London has yet to disappoint me with her writing and Millionaire Under the Mistletoe was not an exception. This second chance romance was an absolutely fantastic read in every way. The hero and heroine, Evan and Stella, were interesting and likable character that I thoroughly enjoyed reading about. And in regards to Stella, she is by far my favorite heroine written by this author. It seems kind of wrong of me, but I really enjoyed how petty she was when dealing with Evan and his desire to buy her grandfather's estate. Her actions were a bit childish at times, but honestly Evan kind of deserved it given what happened between these two in the past. Plus, it was humorous to watch these two go back and forth. As for Evan, while it was fun to watch him squirm, he really was a wonderful character and a nice guy, so I rooted for him to change Stella's mind from the very beginning and was really invested in having these two get a second chance at being together after their disastrous one-night stand years before.

And getting into these two getting a second chance at love, I really loved the way the author set everything up in this story. I especially loved that there aren't many secondary characters aside from the housekeeper because it kept the focus of the story on Stella and Evan as they reconnected and got over their past and fell in love without any outside factors getting in the way. This also allowed for the author to really develop this love story in a way that was very satisfying and got me emotionally invested in seeing these two live happily ever after.

Overall, I loved this book to pieces. It was a sweet and sexy contemporary romance and while my favorite book by this author is still A Dangerously Sexy Secret, this book is definitely a close second at the moment.
