Description from the publisher:
When introvert Emma Glover makes a bet with her friends to see who can have the wildest adventure by New Year’s, she has no intention of winning. She might spend her days writing about sex for her syndicated news column, but her nights are all about takeout and flannel pajamas.

When her friend challenges her to live out one of the sexual escapades she writes about, Emma knows she won’t be able to follow through. But that’s before she lays eyes on a sexy stranger across a crowded hotel lobby.

She can’t help but hope he’s interested in more than one night, but when she finds out her gorgeous one night stand is actually billionaire media mogul Nate Wilder, her hopes die a fast death. There’s no way her Christmas wish will come true. Or is there?

CHRISTMAS WITH THE BILLIONAIRE is the first book in the Holiday Encounters series.  They will need to be read in the order of release as it is an on-going story line.

I like Emma.  I understand her.  There is a whole lot of sexy in an insecure bundle of flannel that prefers to stay home rather than put herself out there on Friday nights.  While I understand Nate’s concerns with gold-diggers, he comes across as a mean jacka**.  I liked him at first, but he lost me after their first night and there was not enough to redeem him later.

Maybe the updates in the later books will let me see him as Emma does.  For now, I’m glad that she is happy.

The friendship between the four girls is spot on and sounds true to life.  They are there for each other as thick as thieves and as near as sisters.
