Overview

Tension and family holidays go together like eggnog and candy canes.

When lawyer Anna brings her boyfriend Jason home for the holidays, it’s a recipe for family drama. Her parents have high expectations for her fast-track future. And those don’t include her hooking up with a kennel worker suffering the results of traumatic brain injury.

With a lousy memory and a shaky past, Jason knows he’s no prize. But what he and Anna have together is priceless. An impulsive proposal on the way to her family’s house seems the best way to prove his feelings for her are forever. Anna’s hesitation to accept stops his heart. And when she seems willing to use him to get back at her manipulative mom, Jason wonders if he’s made the mistake of his life.

Exposed to the light of critical eyes, Jason and Anna’s fairy-tale romance threatens to crumble. The hurdles of their pasts may prove too much for this princess and her pauper. And this new year may ring in bright beginnings – or the end of all their hopes and dreams.

New Year is a sequel which may be enjoyed as a stand alone. To learn more about how Jason and Anna met, read New Life.

Meet the Author

About the author: Bonnie Dee began telling stories as a child. Whenever there was a sleepover, she was the designated ghost-tale teller, guaranteed to frighten and thrill with macabre stories. She still has a story printed in second grade on yellow legal paper about a ghost, a witch, and a talking cat. Writing childish stories later led to majoring in English at college. She dreamed of writing a novel, but didn't have the necessary focus and follow-through at that time in her life. It was only in 2000 that she began writing again and became a multipublished erotic romance author. Check out her books at and sign up for her newsletter for updates on new releases.

Have you ever wanted to know what happens to the happy couple once the final page is turned? In New Year you get to find out as the stress of the holidays puts stress on the burgeoning relationship between Jason and Anna and puts their HEA in jeopardy. Things have been going well between them with Jason keeping his chaotic emotions under control and doing better dealing with his disability and his limitations. He's accepted that Anna will always be the big breadwinner and just wants to be with her and make her happy. To prove his love he decides to propose which doesn't go as planned and brings feelings to the surface Anna's been trying to ignore. Jason is still the same charming and sexy man as before. He's gained confidence and is taking baby steps to improve his future. Love has given him the boost he needed and I applaud his calming influence in moving towards the future. Anna needs something calming as her mother continues to bring out her defensiveness. She feels as if she has to constantly defend what she has with Jason which doesn't bode well for their future. It takes a surprising confession from her mother to convince her to just live her life and stop stressing about what might happen. She needs to embrace the happiness and support Jason brings her now and stop worrying about others. It's a heartwarming and picture perfect ending with this new-found family ringing in the new year together. Again, the realities of his disability were made apparent in a believable way. This time around though he was able to cope on his own which showed a stronger more confident man. Anna didn't display quite as much growth but her fear was believable and her working through it progressed naturally as well. The inclusion of Anna's family demonstrated the chaos of the holidays and leant believability to what Jason and Anna will always have to deal with in regards to people's view of their relationship. This was ultimately an uplifting story that nicely balanced some sexy interludes with truly profound and romantic moments. It brought a smile to my face and I'm once again impressed by how much emotion was packed into less than 100 pages. Ms. Dee is quickly becoming a favorite author and I highly recommend this series, reading it in order to get the full impact of their romantic journey.
