Tis the season for double seduction.
The only item on Jana Colton's Christmas list this year is Kevin Monahan. Preferably naked in her bed. The delicious, hunky chef has been resisting her forever, but she's pulling out all the sexy stops this holiday. Especially since his acceptance of an out-of-state job threatens to nix her quest to rock his boxers off.
Jana has always been Kevin's personal Kryptonite, but giving in to her isn't an option. Relationships are a four-letter word in his book. He cares far too much for Jana to let his emotional baggage ultimately break her heart.
With the arrival of his best friend, Nick Pappas, the balance of temptation shifts. From their past history of sharing women, Nick knows every dirty trick it takes to lead Kevin astray, and he's not afraid to use them. Particularly since Nick's convinced that Jana is exactly what Kevin needs to be happy and whole.
Their game of seduction quickly snowballs into something that feels an awful lot like love--in triplicate. But with Kevin dead set on leaving Michigan, there's a real possibility it could be a blue Christmas for them all.
Warning: This book contains an extremely tormented voyeur, a very naughty and not so saintly Nick, a liberal application of candy cane-flavored body paint, a buzzing butterfly, and enough raunchy fun on a sex swing to melt a snowman...or two.
Holy Hotness Batman this book is frecking hot!! Warning – have peen and/or B.O.B. handy when reading it.
We’ve all read those romances where the guy and girl meet and fall in love within days or even hours of meeting each other. I really love it when a romance book is about a guy and girl who has a history. And in Checking it Twice, Jana and Kevin have been best friends for 5 years. Jana has wanted more for a while now but Kevin tries to keep his lust for Jana in check for fear of hurting her if he didn’t.
So while Jana wanting more than friendship from Kevin she has developed a flirty friendship via the phone with one of her vendors for her adult store. One day she finds herself face to face with the kinky vendor, Nick. And boy is he hot in person.
Could Nick be the one to help Jana get over her longing for Kevin? Maybe but then she finds that the two hot men in her life have a past together of their own.
If you’re looking for a hot menage read with a holiday feel to it you should give Checking it Twice a read. It’s not just a hot sex after hot sex (although there is a LOT of it) there is also a romance with an emotional ride to enjoy too.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
