“Will Watt’s delightful performance amplifies the holiday magic in this contemporary workplace romance […] Watt’s comedic timing and attuned delivery of dialogue and narrative draw out the depths of humor and heart, and more than a few laugh-out-loud moments.” – Audiofile Magazine, Earphones Award Winner

Sam Becker loves—or, okay, likes—his job. Sure, managing a bed-and-bath retailer isn’t exactly glamorous, but it’s good work, and he gets on well with the band of misfits who keep the store running. He could see himself being content here for the long haul. Too bad, then, that the owner is an infuriating git.

Jonathan Forest should never have hired Sam. It was a sentimental decision, and Jonathan didn’t get where he is by following his heart. Determined to set things right, Jonathan orders Sam down to London for a difficult talk…only for a panicking Sam to trip, bump his head, and maybe accidentally imply he doesn’t remember anything?

Faking amnesia seemed like a good idea when Sam was afraid he was getting sacked, but now he has to deal with the reality of Jonathan’s guilt—as well as the unsettling fact that his surly boss might have a softer side to him. There’s an unexpected freedom in getting a second shot at a first impression…but as Sam and Jonathan grow closer, can Sam really bring himself to tell the truth, or will their future be built entirely on one impulsive lie?
