It's a Christmas affair to remember as a Hollywood mogul discovers his inner cowboy—and the woman of his dreams—amid the rugged beauty of Wyoming.  Raine McCall would take snow-covered mountains over a star-studded premiere any day. But when hotshot movie executive Mick Branson arranges dinner on Christmas Eve to discuss a work opportunity, she's intrigued—by the offer and the man. She's a no-makeup, no-frills single mom, who's happy with her quiet life. Sharing chili cheeseburgers and sizzling kisses with Mick is sure heating up her holiday, but country girl and power player don't mix…  It's not just work that's brought Mick back to Mustang Creek. Since he first visited to oversee a documentary, free-spirited graphic designer Raine has been in his head. Her approach to life is as unconventional as her quirky holiday ornaments. Their attraction is undeniable—and so are their differences. Putting down roots in the Wild West wasn't in the script. But there are some Christmas gifts you can't walk away from, even when they turn your whole world upside down…

Imagine going from Hollywood to the wilderness wonderland of the mountains of Wyoming.  Wouldn't that be a shocking change?  Not only that but to find the woman you've been waiting for?  What would you take?  Beautiful peaceful mountains or the glitz and glammer of Hollywood?  Raine McCall didn't have to think about it.  He desired the mountains tipped in white snow.   But a man steps into the picture and changes things with an offer of work. Mick Branson is  movie executive.  Raine isn't cut out for the glitter of Hollywood. She's a single mom, living quietly being a single mom.    But she's interested not only in the offer but the MAN!  And Mick isn't just interested in the work aspect but the WOMAN!  But they come from two different life styles.  Who will change or can there be a compromise?   So far apart and so close.  Can a Hollywood executive put roots down in the Wild West?   Or will the single mom from the Wild West put down roots in Hollywood?  The author gives you two walks of life.  The descriptions are vivid and I took immediately to the peacefulness of  the snow capped mountains and Raine McCall.  As you read you wonder if two totally different people can find happiness together during the special holiday Christmas.  You get the choice of rooting for the simple life or the Hollywood life.   It takes you away to the Christmas season and how some gifts don't mean a whole lot or some gifts mean everything.  I found it an OK read but not enough action.  A nice little, quick read with not a lot to the plot.

I received a copy of this book from Night Owl Reviews and the author and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book  3.5 STARS.
