Book ~ "A Christmas Day at the Office" (2016) Matt Dunn

From Goodreads ~ One Christmas party. Two merging companies. Free-flowing champagne. What could possibly go wrong?

With her new billionaire boss in town, Sophie’s determined to swap the No-Jobs she meets on Tinder for her very own Steve Jobs. But will looking like a million dollars be enough to kick-start a Fifty Shades adventure?

A ring in his pocket and dressed to kill, Calum’s planning to get down on one knee. Though if Mia doesn’t say ‘yes’, he’s not sure he’ll ever get back up.

Julie’s got a surprise for Mark - though it’s something she’s not even sure she wants. Meanwhile, Mark’s got another choice to make: the love of his life, or the opportunity of a lifetime?

With his job on the line and the ex who broke his heart back on the scene, Nathan’s day is becoming a nightmare. But he’s about to meet the woman of his dreams.

This year’s office Christmas party should be a night to remember - but for five of Seek Software’s employees, it might be one they’d sooner forget. 

iFeel and Seek Software are merging and tonight is the Christmas party for the employees of both companies to meet.  This book focuses on that day for five employees of Seek Software.

Sophie is a bit of a ditz and is on the hunt for Mr. Right.  When she hears that Tony, the rich American who has bought their company, is single, she decides to entice him in hopes of making her his fourth wife.

Calum is Seek's top (and only) salesman.  He's not overly confident but since he started dating Mia-Rose, that has changed a bit.  He wants to propose to her and every time he tries that night, something goes wrong.

Julie and Mark have been secretly dating (though many people know) for the last nine months.  They are waiting until Julie's divorce becomes final before coming out as a couple.  But the morning of the Christmas party, Julie gets a big surprise.

Nathan is still recovering from having his heart broken a couple years ago when his then girlfriend broke up with him while he was proposing to her.  He does some research on his counterpart at iFeel, though, and can't wait to meet her.

This is the sixth book I've read by this author and I liked it.  I enjoyed the writing style and found it amusing.  It is written by an English author and set in London so their brand of humour was there.  It was written in third person perspective from the various points of view.  It is the sequel to A Day at the Office, which I haven't read (though I'd like to now) so this book obviously works as a stand alone.
