Overview


House-sitting for her parents seemed like a good idea, until the microwave blew up and the lights went out.

Now Chloe Burke thinks upgrading the electrical system of her childhood home while they are away would make the perfect Christmas gift. Fortunately, there's an electrician in town who can get the job done by the holidays.

Scott Quinn has wanted to get his hands on the Burkes' wiring for almost as long as he's wanted to get his hands on their daughter. Chloe didn't notice Scott back in high school, but she's noticing him now, and soon they're indulging in a little festive fun: no strings, no expectations. After all, Chloe plans to get out of this goldfish bowl of a town and back to her real life in Boston by New Year's.

But Chloe and Scott discover they enjoy each other's company just as much out of bed. Could their holiday fling turn out to be the real thing?

    Lots of fun!

    I've read three books by Shannon Stacey this year and each one has delivered on the laughs, making me smile from ear to ear, great banter between the main characters and always a great, feel good story.

    Sparks of the Stars- Chapter Two

    Windpaw froze, and she knew he could see her tense up. She stared at her paws, unblinking. Time stopped for a while. Even the unrelenting chatter of bridsong had stopped.
    <p>
    "De<_>ad? I'm not de<_>ad! I have to- We needa..." she stuttered and stood on three legs, her back left paw hovering just above the soft sandy ground.
    <p>
    Silver's whiskers twitched and he let his paw fall, along with his tail. "Then let's get you home, I guess." He heaved a sigh and stood.
    <p>
    Windpaw hesitated before limping out. The steep entrance iut from under the willow tree made it very hard- the sand slipped undrer her paws. Streamkit was tucked firmly between her teeth.
    <p>
    Windpaw slipped and teetered on her hind legs for a moment. She fell back, but not onto the sand. Silver was there. He broke her fall and mewed low and concerned. "Need help?"
    <p>
    Windpaw stared at the handsome rouge and searched for words. Her muffled mew replied softly. "Yes- if- you can help me..."
    <p>
    Silver flicked his tail and purred ruggedly. "Alright."
    <p>
    Streamkit yawned as he was passed from his sister to the stranger. Silver chuckled at the tiny kit and swiftly slipped umder Windpaw's left foreleg. He supported half of her weight by crouching low as her.
    <p>
    ...
    <p>
    When Windpaw had arrived in camp, Silver still crouching, although his paw pads felt as if they were on sharp rocks, she breathed in deeply and took Streamkit back carefully. Her heart stopped as he brushed his nose to her ear.
    <p>
    "Good luck, Windpaw." He meowed low, and pelted out swiftly.
    <p>
    Windpaw blushed and looked up from the hollow log that led into camp. Fadingstar stared at her with wide eyes, and slowly the others turned their gaze to her. Windpaw flicked her eyes to a familiar face.
    <p>
    Ashpaw came bounding down from atop a tree stump. He skidded to a stop next to Windpaw. Windpaw sighed as he freaked out.
    <p>
    Ashpaw had been recently crying. His voice was unsure. "Windpaw! Is that you?! Tell us what happened!"
    <p>
    Windpaw began, hesitating. "Well, last I remember was Streamkit and I were fishing... and then this wave came by and pulled Streamkit in... so I jumped in, and I hit a log."
    <p>
    Meadowflight, a long legged white shecat and medicine cat gasped as Windpaw faved away so they could see her wounds. Her right side was battered and broken- maybe ribs were, too. Her leg was completely twisted inwards.
    <p>
    Ashpaw winced and yowled out. "She's hu<_>rt! Meadow-"
    <p>
    Ashpaw was interrupted by the medicine cat. "Got it!" She slipped into her den.
    <p>
    Windpaw caught a flash of white fur as Meadowflight shuffled about, gathering herbs. At once, Spottedgaze, Windpaw's father helped her to the medicine den. As Windpaw weaved through cats, she cuaght a glimpse of black fur.
    <p>
    Chapter Two, part two in next result. Running out of space! Thanks guys for being so encouraging. I'm really trying to make it good. ;D Oh, and it'll get better.

    Its okay

    The story line was somewhat original. The book took me an hour to read and went from start to end quickly. There really wasnt a crescendo or deep dynamic involved. Good for early teen romance as author kept bedroom scenes limited in details, which was refreshing.

    sweet story....

    My Review:

    I enjoyed this book. It wasn't a new storyline...boy & girl knew each other in high school, one was cool, one was decidedly not, unrequited crush, years later and the chemistry is through the roof when they meet again. What was a bit different about this story line was that in this story, it was the guy that was seriously uncool in high school. I really liked that one little twist especially when Scott is chatting with his friend from high school about Chloe...how quickly they revert back to being 17 years old...LOL!

    When Chloe is house-sitting for her parents over the holidays, she decides to surprise them by having the entire house re-wired while they are gone. The electrician is Scott, the overweight, dorky kid that gave her a dandelion in high school, and he has turned into a serious hottie as an adult. I really loved Scott and how he would have those flashback moments where he revisited his 17 yo mentality. It made him completely human with a slightly vulnerable side which made him completely adorable. He is a completely sexy gorgeous man now, but he has moments that are just so sweet as he remembers how Chloe has always made him feel. The mix of that along with the very real chemistry that they have as adults makes this just a phenomenal heart-warming read.

    I liked Chloe too. You would think from hearing about her and how she was so perfect in high school, that she might have an attitude, but she is a web designer now. Yes, she lives in the big city of Boston now, but she spends most of her hours working out of her house and being a homebody. Just the fact that she remembers Scott from that one little dandelion gift says so much about her character. She may have been the popular one in high school, but she was always a good person...just in a prettier package than Scott had at that point in time.

    This novella was part of the holiday Carina Press anthology from last year. After reading several of these novellas from both this year's and last year's anthologies (both their general and m/m anthos), I have to say that I think that these are some of the best holiday novella reading to be found. I truly have enjoyed every single one of these that I have read. Another winner with this one!
