Holiday Sparks by Shannon Stacey
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?
Holiday Sparks was a cute short Christmas story. Chloe is house-sitting for her parents before Christmas and finds their wiring is crazy not good. They have an old fuse system so she cannot even figure out how to turn the lights back on when she blows a fuse. She calls her parents electrician who happens to be Scott, the boy who she doesn't remember from high school.
Scott and Chloe seemed to have real chemistry. They didn't fall in love instantly, but they were instantly attracted to each other. Scott had a huge crush on Chloe in high school, and when the opportunity comes for him to work close to her for a few weeks he takes it. They are sweet together and slowly develop more feelings and it was all very cute. They had agreed early on for this to just be a holiday fling, no feelings since she lives in the city and he doesn't, but of course that doesn't work out. The end was really nice and sweet. Perfect short holiday read.
