Sleigh bells ring in, He Said She Said when a corporate tycoon and a widowed mother make a little holiday magic.

Michelle Collins is the above widowed mother. She’s struggling to survive after her playboy husbands death, as a secretary at a company called, Centennial. Her young son David, is the apple of her eye and wants a new daddy for Christmas.

Jason Radcliffe is the tycoon, who also has a son Matthew. When he first meets Michelle, sparks fly and hearts are all aglow. Until Michelle finds out that Jason wants to buy out the company she works for. David and Matthew make friends and they want their mommy and daddy to get together and make them a family. Jason and Michelle have other ideas…

I’m going to give you the skinny right off the bat. This was predictable and formulaic in every sense of the word. Rich tycoon meets pretty-widowed mother, they engage in much heated dialogue, refusing to acknowledge their attraction. They fight it, give in on occasion, and have two little devils who want to see it happen. She refuses to believe he might be interested in her because she’s not in his class of women. He wants her despite the fact that she fights him tooth and nail, but he’s pig headed and difficult. Throw in the fact that he wants to buy out the company she works for, then they have a big misunderstanding, and in turn you have an age-old formula for romance.

Despite the predictability, this was like finding an old blanket long forgotten in the attic. Snuggling down with it on the couch and taking a walk down a familiar lane. Nothing out of the ordinary, but well written and a comfort read, made this a fun way to pass the time. Mistletoe and Christmas magic are, He Said She Said!
