The promotional description of the male main character, Cash Evans—an alphamellow bad boy hero—is perfect. Lots of readers like a good alphahole hero. But I don’t find alphaholes as much fun as Alphamellows like Cash. Mellows are much easier to like. In this short holiday novel, the best part of Cash Evans’s day is a trip to the coffee shop where he exchanges a few words with the beautiful barista, Bailey Cooper. Until one day, their mutual concern for a homeless man brings them closer together. It’s one thing for Cash to make small talk once every three days with Bailey. It’s another kind of temptation altogether to have her working in as his receptionist in his tattoo parlor. Cash has a hard and fast rule: a 90 day limit on all relationships. But everything is telling him that he’s about to break that rule when it comes to Bailey Cooper.
