Description from the publisher:

Can two people be any more confused than Bailey and Max?


Bailey Cooper is very much attracted to her neighbor Max Davis. Unfortunately for Bailey, Greg – Max’s lover is slowly becoming one of Bailey’s best friends. Bailey’s emotions are torn; she adores Greg’s friendship while at the same time she craves Max’s touch. What is a girl to do when she ‘thinks’ the man she's in love with is in love with someone else?


Max Davis and his baby brother Greg Davis are co-owners of the apartment building they live in. Max has fallen for his tenant, Bailey, but she avoids and ignores all of his advances. Max becomes suspicious of the friendship blooming between Greg and Bailey. He believes Bailey has a crush on his brother but Max wants Bailey all to himself. Now he has to think of ways to keep Bailey and Greg apart.


Will a holiday weekend full of chaos, confusion and a little bit of charm finally get Bailey and Max on the right track? Or will a few innocent caresses lead to more Christmas confusion?



Max Davis and his brother, Greg, are renovating an apartment building where they live and they co-own it.  Max has fallen in love, at first sight, with their new tenant, Bailey Cooper.  Bailey has seen them hug.  She sees the love in Max’s eyes when he speaks of Greg.  Can she be blamed for believing they are lovers?  Max can’t understand why Bailey shies away from all of his advances.  He’s never had this problem with women before.  Will his charms ever clear their confusion?


I have never played truth-or-dare.  I know.  I know.  What can I say?  I really was a nerd in school and never had the opportunity.  When Greg, Bailey, and Bailey’s friend Krista played, I was in absolute stitches.  I was holding my breath with Max.  In fact, all through this book, I was alternating between holding my breath and laughing until my sides hurt.


CHRISTMAS CONFUSION is a quick holiday read.  The comedy is perfectly timed.  I had to keep stifling myself to not wake the family as I read this book.  There is going to be a follow-up book (series?) and I will be first in line to read what happens next!
