*I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review*
’Tis the night before Christmas…and businessman and single father Jason is scrambling to find the dollhouse of the season for his seven-year-old daughter Emily. But when he finally strikes gold at an obscure toy store, he’s met with resistance—literally, as from the aisle across from him a beautiful woman named Leah is grabbing onto the dollhouse box with similar intent, determined to get the same Christmas present for her own daughter.
Desperate not to let the other win, Jason and Leah forge a pact: stay together until they find the same dollhouse at a different toy store. It sounds simple, but ten stores and many hours later, they still come up empty. They might not be finding another dollhouse, but they sure are finding a lot to talk about and, as their mutual attraction grows, the unlikely pair finds the greatest holiday gift of all—love.

This Book Nerd Says:
Since I'm a self declared lover of all the sugar dipped made for TV romances you find on during this time of year, this book jumped out right away for me. To my happiness, it was exactly the kind of read I was expecting.
Jason and Leah are both single parents trying to hunt down the one perfect gift for each of their daughters in the last few remaining hours before Christmas. If that wasn't enough trouble, the number one gift on their respective daughter's list is also in high demand. Finally they luck out and find one, the real problem comes when they each grab hold of one side of the box and when the other won't give it up, they're left to compromise.
The hours they spend together both awaken dormant feelings in both of them. Jason begins to wonder if the dollhouse is really the perfect gift after all.
The story is more novella length and is a quick yet enjoyable read. If you're looking for a drama free feel good story with tons of sweet moments, this is the book for you. I recommend reading it curled up in a cozy blanket with a cup of hot cocoa.
I'm giving The Perfect Gift 4 Stars.
