I love a good erotica and this year I discovered some really good novellas, specially in December because Christmas is a good time to sell and several authors decided to produce a little something. I discovered the first book in this series and it the story made me realize it was part of a series, so I read them all and this is a review for those three smuts.
Holly Knight doesn’t have time for Christmas. As the head of Knight Enterprises in Chicago, she doesn’t have time for anything, not even a personal life—other than her brief, secret liaisons with men who remain strangers. Until a new stranger comes to town…
Ebenezer Hall is a ‘closer’. His job: negotiate a merger with a woman who is as notorious for being a hard-ass as he is for being a charmer no one can resist—and he’s not above mixing business with pleasure as long as it’ll get him what he wants.
The chemistry is sizzling hot, and things get even hotter when Ben’s friends and long-time lovers Justin and Kit arrive in Chicago. Three gorgeous men are even more exciting than one, and Holly’s body is sated in ways she’s never even dreamed of. But she can’t allow herself to be distracted for long—her priority is always business…and protecting her heart.
Can an infamous playboy and a hard-hearted corporate mogul ever admit to their heart’s desires? Or will it take a little holiday magic for them to realize that all they want for Christmas is each other?
Warning: Contains all ingredients for the perfect kinky holiday: Three men demonstrating blow-job techniques—on each other—because the author couldn’t resist. Neither can Holly. Neither will you. A little sensual domination, because Ben can’t resist. Neither can Holly. Or Justin. Or Kit. Put it all together with some Christmas magic and mix—vigorously. Served hot. Best enjoyed with a side of sex toys.
I had a few issues with Ben because one thing is enjoy the moment and have fun, but he stole a private list from Holly and pushed an orgy on her, without talking about the subject before.
I enjoyed the sex and the way Holly managed to change her life and try to reconnect with her family but I agree with her that Ben needed to beg forgiveness.
Both of them had problems connected with Christmas and their family, but Ben he messed a business because he wanted to have fun and forget about real life.
Video game mogul, philanthropist and heir to the Knight empire, Tim Crichton has three F-zones—the friend zone, the family zone, and the, er… fun-buddy zone. No crossover is allowed because it might create a fourth—the forever zone—and Tim knows forever just isn’t in the cards for him.
Miranda Girard has always known she and Tim were meant to be together, but when she got tired of waiting and made a move, he rejected her. Now it’s time for their Christmas reunion dinner and she’s damn well going to put on a happy face and attend—after she stops at the bar for a little liquid courage.
Peter Vaughn can’t wait for his new house to be finished so he can move out of Tim’s apartment—living with a man he wants and can’t have gets old quick. But work on the house has ground to a halt and he’s stuck there until after the new year.
It all seems hopeless until a jolly old doorman nudges Peter and Miranda together, and a little Christmas magic quickly escalates to a scorching holiday encounter that will either rescue Tim from a lonely future…or cost him the two most important people in his life.
This was my favorite book in the series and it had it all. M/M, a very sexy M/F/M, but the best part was these three finding happiness together and helping Tim enjoy a good life without fear. He suffered so much that he really needed some time to accept friendship and love from people that care about him.
Plus this story has a lot of BDSM and it made so steamy. Really great little book and I was really happy to see a great HEA on the end of this one.
Miranda need to put Tim to work more on forgiveness because she waited for him for so long.
Marley Knight-Williams has avoided the ghosts of her past for seventeen years. Now, after one thoughtless decision and too many margaritas, they’ve found her. Her memories, her heartache…and her men. Just in time for the holidays.
Boxer and gym owner Michael O’Shea is at the end of his rope. When his best friend Carlos comes home from serving his country, he’s a changed man—broken and wounded, inside and out. Michael knows there is only one person who can bring him back, one person who can make this a Christmas they will all remember. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her around.
Even if he has to break out the chains.
Time has changed them all, but it’s only banked the embers of their passion, and when the flames flare to life, they burn hotter than ever. Will the heat be enough to sear away the obstacles that stand between them? Or will it drive them apart before they can finish what they started all those years ago?
Warning: These characters shocked the author…Just saying’…Menage and explicit sex. Schoolboy fantasies given a kinky adult twist. Voyeurism and exhibitionism. Spin the bottle, spanking, dirty sexting, and chains. Pervertable use of a poor innocent cane. Romance and magic and holiday love. With special guest appearances by Bob, Other Bob and Better Bob.
By reading the summary I thought this book was going to be my favorite because I love a ménage story, but I didn’t connect with Marley and her reasons for “running” were a little weak, plus she could have had a perfect and very fun relationship with two great guys and she was afraid of rumors.
The sex was good, but I have a serious problem with Marley and the way she kept running even while they were having fun. Because Michael is strong and handsome, Carlos is a hero and very intelligent.
What more could a girl want?
