Is fate playing matchmaker this holiday season?

Missy Higgins isn’t looking for a man, yet everywhere she turns, sexy Ben Wright pops up. A harmless flirtation, nothing more, until Ben wanders into the Christmas craft bazaar just as her horrible ex appears. It’s Ben to the rescue as her fake boyfriend with a scorching kiss that leaves her breathless and weak in the knees.

Mind. Blown. (Though she insists it’s a onetime thing).

But when Ben shows up just as she’s getting fired and offers her a holiday job she desperately needs, she has to wonder if fate might be telling her something. Like screw professional boundaries, give in to uncontrollable lust, and let a man into her heart. How can she resist fate when Ben is irresistible?

  • Christmas matchmaking!

    By GreyGirl50
    The Happy Endings Book Club series is getting ready for the Christmas holidays and there’s a matchmaker on duty to make sure it’s a holiday surrounded with love for two very special people. Missy Higgins has learned the hard way that life is tough and she can only count on herself in this world. She’s been abandoned and abused and she’s never going to let a sweet talking man take advantage of her ever again. But sexy flirt, Ben Wright sees a kindred spirit in Missy and though she’s only interested in sex with no strings, he’s bound and determined to help her, no matter how long it takes. Sometimes light hearted and often heart breaking, this is a wonderful storyline filled with the former characters we’ve come to know and love in this delightful Connecticut town. I read an early copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.

    Resisting Fate was one emotional book about trust and allowing someone in as pulling back to let someone be themselves. Ben and Missy story was cute banter with hidden truths of past incidents that they feel defined their future happiness. Kylie did very well with this storyline hitting on battery, assault and real life events that are in the news today. This story may trigger some thing for many people so just keep in mind, Not all is judged by things they can’t control.
  • The perfect title

    By kmmichels
    The perfect title for a wonderful book! Missy resisted ALL THE WAY, and Ben hopped on the fate bandwagon really fast! A bit emotional in some ways, but a really fun read! The dialogue was witty and engaging, and the storyline was sweet and sexy. I cannot wait for the next book in this series!
  • Missy and Ben- fate

    By Nettie1114
    I love Kylie Gilmore's Happy Endings Book Club Series and Resisting Fate is a witty emotional story. Missy Higgens and Ben Wright brought together by fate or ?. This book is very funny especially the when Ben is sent in by his grandma to buy his Christmas sweater and when Missy is an elf at the mall. It becomes very emotional when the book deals fostercare and spousal abuse. Missy has keep quiet about her past and has resolved to depend only herself and Ben's need to be the hero and to help Missy. I love how Kylie Gilmore writes Missy and Ben's story it is witty, sincere, romantic and very emotional. I highly recommend reading Resisting Fate you will laugh and cry. I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.
  • Ben & Missy

    By kastan man
    Missy and Ben have similar backgrounds and have fought for their happiness. Missy decided, after her abusive ex, all men are worthless and she would never be in a relationship again because it was not worth the pain. She is beyond stubborn and is indignant if anyone would dare help her. Ben is against marriage but for different reasons, loving is too emotionally difficult. But something about Missy won't let him forget her, and he wants to know her better. Great to catch up with the other couples. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
  • Sweetly thrilling romance!

    By Cali Jewel
    So hard to express how much I loved this quirky, funny and loving story. It has everything you could want, emotional highs and lows, intriguing charters, beautiful setting and an undeniable attraction. Missy Higgins is sassy, smart and so not looking for a man to complete her life. Not after her past experience with men soured her outlook on love. Yet it seems that fate keeps bring Ben Wright into her life and the sparks just wont stop flying. Ben is sexy, charming and a unrepentant flirt with a not so rosy outlook on forever love either. He keeps his encounters light and fun never risking his heart for a reason. These two have so much in common they could be the same person.. almost.. Loved every emotional twist and turn.
  • Don’t resist this one.

    By RomanceKel
    Another member of the Happy Endings Book Club finds her man. This time it’s secretive Missy, a lost soul who is determined to live her life needing help from no one. She loves her book club friends but, carrying the shame of her past she’s not interested in sharing much of herself with anyone. Especially big, hot, handsome Ben who’s mother’s legacy has instilled in him a drive to be needed. Our hero and heroine don’t just keep running into each other, they keep running into each other as they indulge in their altruistic tendencies. Fate? Ben insists it is. Missy’s not so sure. You be the judge as this sexy love story unfolds.
  • New. Favorite. Kylie book.

    By RomanceNovelGiveaways
    New. Favorite. Kylie book. This was MY book. I loved absolutely EVERYTHING. Ben was my kind of guy. He made no apologies for being who he was, and wasn't exactly looking for a relationship, but he didn't really fight it when it was glaringly obvious that one landed in his lap. Or on his sweater, as it were. I read about Missy in previous books, and I was SO happy that she would have her own story. She had been through some craziness, but it was just another sign pointing straight at Ben. This is actually tied for my favorite Kylie book, Kissing Santa, but trust me when I say that both have perfect men, strong women and hilarious matchmakers bringing everything together. Have I mentioned that I'm DYING to read Hailey and Josh's story? Start at book 1, people. You'll meet both of them and then follow their story as it slowly and deliciously unfolds throughout the series. Can't. Wait. !!! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of my honest thoughts)
