All I want for Christmas is go to back to how my life was before.
Before the trip to Las Vegas.
Before the viral interview where my career imploded.
Before I became the face of a women’s empowerment movement across the world.
Don’t get me wrong, I love how women are #ClaimingTheirCoal after I declared that sometimes being a little bad is good, but I didn’t realize in doing so I would become the paparazzi’s new favorite target.
I went from The Nice List to The Naughty List overnight, and I can’t take it anymore.
So I do the only thing I can do. I accept a friend’s offer to hide out in her small town, and I run away.
What I wasn’t expecting under my tree this year was an unlikely sidekick. With his strong jawline, corny jokes, and sexy Southern drawl, Trent Rudolph is making me feel like I’m living in one of my Christmas movies.
But real life isn’t a movie. Especially one with a guaranteed happily ever after.
Soon, the Christmas magic runs out, and we have to face the truth. I can’t hide from my reality forever. But will Trent’s arms be there to catch me when I finally stop running?
