Novella – 74 pages
Gabe, a software engineer with a long history of one-night stands and Alex, a practical romance writer with a distinct lack of romance in her life want to ring in the New Year with a little fun—and a lot of music—at a waterfront New Year’s Eve bash where costumes disguise one’s true nature. Abandoned by their friends and forced together, first impressions leave them disenchanted. But attraction soon smolders between them causing Gabe to contemplate deeper connections and tempting Alex to cast aside all her inhibitions. Can sexual chemistry, particularly between a devil-girl and a black-winged angel, lead Alex and Gabe to a midnight kiss? Or will their fears and first impressions leave them counting down the seconds alone?
A costume themed New Year’s Eve event is the center of this fun, quick read. I liked Alex, the lead female character, who is self-assured, strong yet vulnerable. The male lead is the typical cocky, “doesn’t do relationships”, player but deep down is a good guy who’s responsible and cares. The chemistry ignites as these two put their differences and first impressions aside and get to know each other as they ring in the new year. Ms. Senhaji wrote fully developed characters and a believable story within this short read that captured my attention. Good read!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA, and have a husband and two children. Music is an addiction. I can often be found in the car, singing along at the top of my lungs to whatever is playing. I work full time, and I split my spare time between family, reading, blogging, and writing. I’m a habitual quoter. Lines from films and TV shows constantly pop into my head—my kids are the only ones that really get it. I’m an only child, and so of course I married a man who is one of ten children. Other than English, I speak Spanish, Moroccan, and a little French. I love to travel, but don’t do enough of it. Reading has been a passion for most of my life and I now love writing. I’m klutz, and in my own mind, I’m hilarious.
