Publisher's Summary

I hate Christmas.

As CEO of my company, I’ve banned decorations from the office, festive music from the lobby, and any kind of secret Santa gifts between employees are strictly forbidden.

I’m heading to the airport, away from the Christmas lights and the mulled wine, heading for sunshine and margaritas when I get a call from Granny. She’s sprained her ankle and needs my help filling in for her as head of the village Christmas Committee. Snowsly is the Christmas Capital of England and the last place I want to be in the lead up to Christmas.

But there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for Granny.

When I arrive in Snowsly, I’m introduced to Celia Sommers, who is Christmas’ biggest fan, and, therefore, my own personal nightmare before Christmas. Worse than that, I have to work with her to make Snowsly’s Christmas market a success.

Celia is determined to get me in the festive spirit. It’s not going to work.

It doesn’t matter if she’s smart and funny and easy to flirt with - if she doesn’t stop looking at me with her sparkling eyes and pouting her completely kissable lips, Celia is going straight to the top of my naughty list.

A perfect Christmas love story and new favorite!!!

There is not a single thing I didn't absolutely love about this book. I fell head over heels for Snowsly and its quirky, mischievous residents. It was so easy to picture the beautiful lights, decorations, adorable stalls, and bustling crowds of the Christmas market. I could almost smell the goodies being offered, feel the crisp winter air on my cheeks, and taste the heart attack in a cup hot chocolate. It was truly magical.

Grumpy humbug Sebastian having to endure Celia's crazy Christmas jumpers, infectious Christmas spirit, and groan worthy puns was utterly delightful and hilarious. Their time together is sweet, sassy, and oh so steamy!!! Sebastian may be a Grinch on the outside, but I teared up several times over the thoughtful and selfless ways he took care of and came to the rescue of Granny, the town, and Celia. I'd say his heart was always 3 sizes bigger. It just needed a little warming up.

Louise Bay has become an insta-buy for me because of her rich characters, humor, world building, and of course, the sheer level of steaminess. I love that she writes perfect characters for Shane East to bring to life with all of his fabulous leading ladies like Clare Corbett. Who, BTW, is brilliant in Private Player and Promised Nights.

Loved it!

First I’ll say I dislike it when the female does the male voice and then the male does the female voice. Yet somehow these two narrators got me to forget that pet peeve. They were awesome!

Awesome story! I loved this book so much.

Louise Bay I would have been happier with another 10 hours added. Lol because honestly feel good audio is the best. I totally would have enjoyed more of the day to day added in. From snowball fights, sitting in front of the fireplace sharing stories with the neighbors in the manor, maybe a few little fun bits about the guests, all the little fun magical moments of winter and Christmas. Also please add Lemon’s story to audiobook. 💕🎄

Hallmark with heat!

I adore Louise Bay and this Christmas story was exactly what I needed right now. I love the “Hallmark” style Christmas movie, but really need more heat and steam and that is exactly what Louise delivers in this book. All the holiday ambience, the sweet love story, very little drama or angst, but with the added bonus of steamy scenes that you expect and want in a romance novel, make this the perfect holiday listen. Shane East and Clare Corbett were quintessentially British and perfectly charming in this English countryside small-town romance.

New favourite Christmas audio

I love Louise Bays books. This was such a cute Christmas story. Love a grouchy guy who wants nothing to do with Christmas. However will do anything for his grandmother. Even come to her town and help prepare the market she usually helps with after spraining her ankle. He gets paired up with the most Christmasy person the town has and her happiness starts to rub off on the grinch! I can’t wait for the next book….. hopefully we don’t have to wait till next Christmas because I want it now!! Haha! If you enjoy Hallmark movies with some extra spice…… get this book!!!

Perfect Christmas Romance - Outstanding Narration!

This is a beautiful Christmas Romance! I read it and loved it. The audiobook version beautifully brings this story to life. Sebastian and Celia's story is funny, sweet, sexy, and heartwarming. Sebastian is grumpy, but handsome, caring, and supportive. Celia is a fantastic character. She is lovely, kind, and caring. They are opposites attract, and they are perfect together. I enjoyed following them in their journey to love. The side characters are amazing, and I loved Sebastian's grandmother. The festive spirit and the beautiful scenery are wonderful. This definitely is the best way to get in the magical Christmas Season. Shane East and Clare Corbett did an outstanding job with the narration. They are perfect as Sebastian and Celia. I love their voices together. They have a beautiful voice, very pleasant to listen to. This audiobook is a must to have, and to listen again for the Christmas Season! I HIGHLY recommend it!

Loved this Cozy, sexy Christmas story

This is my first Louise Bay book, my umpteenth Shane East listen and my first book narrated by Clare Corbett. This book was the perfect lead into Christmas in Snowsly. I am hoping that Shane and Clare will continue to work on the rest of the books.

A perfect Christmas romance!

With this story, we get the classic Christmas tale of the grumpy, serious business man who hates Christmas, meeting the Christmas loving woman in a small town. It’s perfect! The characters and story line are really enjoyable, and was the perfect story to read leading up to Christmas.

Shane East was great as the grumpy character. Clare Corbett was new to me, and I really liked her narration. Hoping to listen to more from her!

Well Narrated Utter Rubbish

Worst, laziest book by this author so far. Its short and trite and a total disappointment. The characters are undeveloped and empty, the storyline is non-existant and there's no tension. The fact two British villages are called Snowsly and Snowville really sets the bar for the effort made here and wow, when those names are said every five minutes it really grates. The narration is great but it's like a really poor Hallmark movie with a quick juvenile sex tagged on. Even Shane East can't sell Celia's "undulating breasts and quivering folds" or the "levering hips" of Sebastian who has "a really nice penis for someone who acts so cold". But hey you stop eye rolling at the Celia's constant rubbish Christmas puns 'snow way!" once you have to deal with her "screaming her orgasm and howling" Sebastian's name - to be fair to her she's 'melting on his c*** like snow in the sun" so maybe she needs to be reacting so cringingly? This is a total waste of a credit and has been written with no effort or care at all.

Christmas fun

As a fan of Christmas, I loved this story. Celia the Christmas mad resident of Snowsley and Sebastian who only had bad Christmas memories get thrown together. A great listen and a fun sexy tale for any time of the year

Full of festive fun!

Sebastian and Celia have very different opinions when it comes to Christmas, but with Celia’s enthusiasm and determination how can he not catch some of the festive feels!
The 14 Days Of Christmas is a fun, sweet, and steamy read with a plethora of quirky characters and a heartwarming storyline making this a magical romance that you won’t want to miss.
