A little nice and a lot naughty, this festive romance is a mix of spicy and sweet. It’s Christmas-themed throughout (yes, even the steamy scenes), and will bring you some holiday cheer. I was surprised by just how quickly this story flew by, and it was a nice, festive treat. While I never fully connected to either character – and the over the top steamy scenes didn’t make it any easier to do so – it’s a fun, quick read that will surely warm up a long winter’s night.
The story follows Holly Jolly and Saint Nick, two people who grew up without Christmas in their lives… well, except for their names, which are both funny coincidences. When the Grinch-like Holly is hired to build a gingerbread house for the Christmas-loving Saint’s business, these two discover that they have more in common than you’d expect. There’s obvious chemistry there, but once Saint gets to know Holly better, all he wants is to bring her some holiday cheer.
There’s something about this author’s writing style that I really love, so I didn’t hesitate to check out this holiday romance. It’s pretty adorable in sticking with the festive theme throughout, and is just the kind of story that I love to read this time of year. Well, except maybe the steam. I’ve got nothing against steam, but the Christmas-themed intimate moments were a bit much – I even guffawed out loud at one point, when I’m 100% sure that I was supposed to be caught up in the moment. This Santa is a bad, bad boy, and I’ll give the author kudos for creativity. Regardless, there’s a lot that I liked about this, so if you’re looking for a dirty Hallmark movie in book form – that’s what this is. It’s a quick, easy read that’s a blend of naughty and nice. I received an early copy via Wildfire Marketing and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sweet and spicy romance.
From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a hot holiday romcom that’s the perfect blend of naughty and nice…
Holly Jolly hates Christmas—ironic, she knows.
But she can’t turn down the opportunity to create San Francisco’s legendary, life-size gingerbread house. Surrounded by tinsled trees and merry mistletoe, Holly steps into her own nightmare before Christmas. Especially when her boss turns out to be a very sexy Saint Nick.
Saint Nicholsen never expected his new pastry chef to hate his favorite holiday—or to be so alluring. And when one conversation makes it clear there’s more to her story than the gorgeous grinch is letting on, Saint decides to grant her every missed Christmas wish.
Unfortunately for him, Holly doesn’t trust the holiday that’s only proved disastrous. She’s already taken out Santa, overdosed on eggnog, and almost toppled the tree—and that’s only this year.
But somewhere between presents and tree trimming, the magic of their attraction begins to melt her candy-coated confidence and open her hurt-wrapped heart.
When Christmas Eve rolls around with more than a kiss from her Christmas list, Saint will be her Santa tonight, but come tomorrow, will Holly take the leap and hold onto the magic?
Author’s Note: This grumpy grinch romcom is complete with an attempt on Santa’s life, an ornament that’s shaped very inappropriately, and some very steamy scenes of festive frolicking. Proceed with caution.
