Once again, Erin Brady has delighted me with her new book, The Holiday Gig! It’s cute and fun, with a super hot hero! And the best part, it left me with a warm fuzzy feeling inside!

Taylor Barnes has worked so hard and is so close to her goal of becoming a partner in the high power law firm she works for. She logs in as many billable hours as she can, working through weekends and holidays.  Taylor is sure she has it in the bag when her boss, Mr. Wigs, drops a bomb in her lap, he makes it clear that he values not only hard work but that it is important for a partner in the firm to have a strong family life. A Family life?!...that is something Taylor does not have! She is too busy for a relationship, and she rarely visits her parents anymore. Taylor can’t tell Mr. Wigs there is no one special in her life. So, she makes up the perfect boyfriend, Tom Maguire! Now all she has to do is find him. 

Taylor places an ad for a personal assistant. After interviewing several people, she picks Hunter Ryan for the job. But will he take the job when he finds out that the real job is to play the role of her “boyfriend” Tom Maguire? 

Not only is Mr. Wigs insisting on meeting Tom, but her mother is also putting on the pressure for her to come home for the holidays. Her cousin and best friend, Melissa is getting married the day before Christmas, a big Christmas themed wedding, and her mother expects her to be there. In fact, she already RSVPed for Taylor, adding a plus one to the response card! Her mom's way of saying, "You need a man in your life." Hmmm... maybe a temporary boyfriend would come in handy.

I loved Hunter! Erin Brady knows how to write a handsome and swoon worthy hero! Hunter is smart, has a great sense of humor and is compassionate - he works at Higher Horizons, a children’s home. Hunter is an amazing man. 

Hunter and Taylor are such opposites. She is so uptight; he is very laid back. She is all work and no play. Hunter likes to balance work and play. As they spend more time together, Hunter helps Taylor loosen up, to have fun, he shows her what’s important in life, but does she learn those lessons too late?

I loved The Holiday Gig! It is the perfect holiday read, but you don’t have to wait for the holidays to read it! It’s just right to read anytime, and one I would highly recommend!

I really enjoy Erin Brady's writing style. She is also the author of And The Winner Is... and The Shopping Swap.  You can read my reviews by clicking on the titles.
