Book Description:

Sports therapist Avery Troupe just got some bad news that’s left her jobless and homeless just weeks before Christmas. Taking a temporary assignment with an athlete who’s hiding away in the Caribbean for the holidays who has fired his last four aids might be just the answer to her problems. Sunshine, sandy beaches, and crystal blue water sounds like the perfect way to spend the holiday this year.

Drew Laskin is secretly on the mend in his island home following an injury doing something forbidden in his contract. The only thing worse than the pain is the guilt he’s feeling at having to cancel taking his nephew to see snow for the first time this Christmas.

Promising to keep Drew’s secret, Avery gets the bah-humbugging baseball star focused on an aggressive three-week plan to get him ready for training. By New Year’s they won’t ever have to set eyes on each other again. Only there’s an unexpected blizzard of Christmas magic about to change everything.

Reviews for the Book

This is a quick, clean read set in a tropical location during the Christmas holiday. Avery loses her job and her apartment just weeks before Christmas. At a loss as to what to do, she takes a job getting a popular sports figure healed and ready to return to work. Although Drew starts out cranky, he quickly comes around and completes all of the physical therapy Avery has planned.
While getting to know each other through the daily therapy sessions, they also bond over creating a spectacular Christmas for Drew’s sister and her family, who were expecting to have a white Christmas skiing until Drew injured his knee. Feelings grow, and this might turn out to be the best Christmas ever for Avery and Drew.
