Kim has been the coordinator at Naughty Nicks, home of the sexiest Santa strippers, every Christmas for three years—and for just as long, she's lusted after her boss. She enjoys their flirty banter and heated looks, but she's getting tired of Blake being nice when she's feeling naughty. This year, there's only one kind of Christmas bonus she wants.

With each passing holiday season, Blake's attraction to Kim has grown. But after a bitter divorce, he's not sure he's ready to jump into a new relationship, especially with an employee. One passionate kiss under the mistletoe and he realizes he's had enough of looking and not touching. Fortunately, he knows the perfect way to seduce Kim—a private striptease to prove she's the only elf for his Naughty Nick.

Well-Written Sweet sexy1

Naughty Nicks is a great holiday themed romance about a couple that got started by having a one night stand and then getting together for their HEA 3 years later.

Kim is a twenty-something fun-loving gal that meets a guy a bar while she’s having drinks with her friends. When she finds out that the guy, Blake is drinking alone because his wife cheated on him and then left him during the holiday season.

Blake is hung up on the fact that he is 10 years older than Kim and thing they can’t have a real future together. He seems to think that because of the age different they are in different places in their lives. He thinks there’s no possibility Kim would want to settle down and he’s not looking to ruin their friendship and working relationship on casual sex so he keeps his distance.

Kim is crushing hard on Blake through the three years since that one hot night they shared. She keeps flirting with Blake during the holiday seasons that she works for him and thinks about him the rest of the year. She doesn’t understand why Blake won’t take the bait and make something happen.

Christine d’Abo delivered a great romance story in under 100 pages and I’d like to read some more of her work in the future.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

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).
