Catch a Falling Star by Réve Garrison

Cristian is a graduate student who is still starving in a small apartment with dead end jobs. For Christmas he works as salesman in a big department store, trying to avoid the unwelcomed attention of the store manager. But when he falls from a ladder in the middle of the store destroying a lot of Christmas lights, the manager doesn't think two to fire him, even if the customer who caused the accident tried to defend him.

Logan, the customer, is so sorry for what happened that brings Cristian to lunch and meanwhile listens to all the young man's trouble. And so he offers him a two days job to decor his huge mansion. When the two are alone together, Logan realizes that he would be happy for the young man, not only to decor his home for the Christmas season, but also to fullfil it all the year.

All right, this is a nice sweet romance (no sex, merely a kiss) that can only happen at Christmas or in a Cinderfella tale: how many chances you have to find a wealthy and kind Prince Charming in a department store? please if there is an aisle for them, signal it in big letters! Joke apart, the story is nice, tender and heartwarming. A bit naivee on Cristian's side, he is so innocent that sometime he is almost too much to be true, and Logan is maybe a bit to perfect, too much Prince Charming alike, but all in all this is a Christmas romance, and so miracles happen.

I love Reve Prince Charming tales...they always make me believe in happy endings :)

There is such a sweet southern charm to her tales that invite the reader to that magical and wonderful place of make believe.

Im glad that you liked her fic, she is also one of my favorite authors.
