That’s either the title of a holiday listicle I’ll be submitting in the hopes of strumming up extra cash…or it’s the mental game I’m playing during après ski.

Take a guess. (Hint: You can’t get it wrong.)

My first impression of the snowboarder balking at the top of the ski run wasn’t the greatest. But a couple of drinks in, with his ruffled hair, whiskey eyes, and southern twang, Oliver transforms from just another vacationer to sizzling dreamy Texan.

This is the year I’m supposed to turn my life around. This is the year I’m supposed to live my life for me. What better way to kickstart my new life than with a holiday fling?

Plus, it’s my first Christmas without my family. And Oliver’s alone at Christmas too. No one should be alone at Christmas, right? 

That’s my logic. 

Those hot jingly nights keep us warm and toasty through my most unforgettable holiday ever.

And then it’s goodbye. 

A sane, healthy, mature parting of ways and the kick-off to the Year of Me.

But when an impulsive text rekindles the holiday spirit, it’s clear the fireworks didn’t end at New Year’s…

Christmas magic abounds in this love story that begins as a carefree holiday fling and transforms in the New Year, through all the seasons, and winds up right up back on Christmas Tree Lane.

How to Survive a Holiday Fling is a standalone holiday romance featuring Oliver Duke. Overlapping characters from books featuring the Duke brothers include Trust Me, Misplaced Mistletoe, and Always Sunny.

“These two are proof that dreams change, compromise isn’t always bad, and maybe it isn’t a compromise at all when both parties find themselves exactly where they want to be. Get comfy because this read is full of self-discovery and growing pains along the way to true happiness.” - Jenn the Readaholic
