Indulgence Release Week Blast

Stay warm as the weather turns cool with four hot new Indulgence novels from your favorite authors!
Beauty and the Boss by Diane Alberts

Researcher Maggie Donovan has no luck with men, and it doesn’t help that she can’t keep her eyes off of her sexy boss – the one everyone else in the office calls The Beast. Relationships in the office are forbidden. So no one is more surprised than Maggie when she pretends to be his fiancée to save him during a difficult situation. Not only has she put her job on the line, but the future of the company.

Billionaire Benjamin Gale III doesn’t believe in love or romance, but the look on his mother’s face when Maggie tells her that she’s his fiancée is worth millions. Instead of firing her for her insubordination, he goes along with the ruse. In his arms–and in his bed–she’d be everything he could ever want…which is why he can’t have her.

But if he doesn’t let her go, they’ll lose everything…

Blurring the Lines by Marisa Cleveland

Real estate development CEO Blake Whitman is an Aquarius with a philanthropic nature, but when it comes to work, he’s driven and focused, and he would never, ever mix business with pleasure. As far as he’s concerned, office romance is off the table.

He also never backs down from a challenge, and Kira Layton just accused him of ruining the community. What better way to get her on his side than to hire her?

But the more he tells himself to keep his hands off his new, sexy secretary, the harder it is for him to come up with reasons why office romances never work and why it’s a bad idea to cross the line…

The Billionaire’s Christmas Proposal by Victoria James

She’s everything he wants for Christmas…

Social worker Allison Barrington’s home went up in smoke, literally, a month before Christmas. Now the guardian of her teenage sister and a crazy pup, she shows up on the doorstep of the only man in the city she can trust. Resisting Ethan Dane had never been easy, but luckily, Allie isn’t into cutthroat playboy businessmen. And Ethan is as driven as they come.

Ethan Dane has wanted Allie since the moment he laid eyes on her at their best friends’ wedding. Having her in his home is the perfect chance to prove to her that their chemistry can’t be denied, but when he finds out that the biggest business coup of his career means destroying the youth center where Allie works, Ethan is forced to decide what kind of man he wants to be…

The Greek’s Stowaway Bride by Alexia Adams

Egyptian heiress Rania Ghalli is desperate to free her political prisoner uncle before it’s too late. Hoping to make it to North Africa, she stows away on the yacht of Greek millionaire Demetri Christodoulou. But when Egyptian agents board the boat, she can either jump overboard…or claim she’s Demetri’s new bride.

Tired of being no more than the bastard disgrace to the Christodoulou name, Demetri intends to build a luxury resort below his grandfather’s house so the old man has no choice but to acknowledge that Demetri has made something of himself. But first, he needs a wife to complete the land purchase.

With Rania now at his mercy, a plan comes together. He’ll play along, protecting her and helping to free her uncle, but in exchange, he demands a real marriage. But keeping the vivacious heiress out of his heart will be a lot harder than keeping her on his ship…

Secret Santa Baby by Robin Covington

Tessa Stoneman hasn’t been able to get long-time friend and business partner Nicholas Boone out of her head since they shared a single kiss in college. Even when she dated Nicholas’s best friend. Now that she’s giving up her position at GameNerdz to strike out on her own—and now that she’s single—maybe it’s the right time to see if there’s still something between them.

Nicholas knows once Tessa leaves the company she helped found, they might drift apart. Before she starts her own company in the new year, he wants to woo the woman he fell in love with during college. So he poses as her Secret Santa, gifts her with items from the song “Santa Baby,” and plans a big reveal at the company holiday party. But when his best friend wants to rekindle his romance with Tessa, will Nicholas lose his last chance?

My Review of Sweet Christmas Kisses 2-Boycotting Christmas by Melinda Curtis

unnamed

I was given this amazing opportunity to review the first three stories in Sweet Christmas Kisses 2. This book is collaboration of 19 heartwarming Christmas romances by various authors. Who doesn’t love a good Christmas romance?  I was going to wait and post all three of my reviews at once but decided against it as I want to give each author their own post, so here goes!

Editorial Synopsis:

Sweet Christmas Kisses 2 takes you from the Smoky Mountains to Florida’s sun-drenched beaches, from the Italian Alps to Paris, France, and even to a quirky little town in Arizona. The Sweet Christmas Kisses 2 bundle features all-new, stand-alone stories that are sure to make you laugh, sometimes bring tears to your eyes, but always put you in the Christmas spirit. Foreword by New York Times bestselling author, RaeAnne Thayne.

Boycotting Christmas by Melinda Curtis, USA Today, National bestselling and Award-winning author. A bachelor seeks Christmas magic from a woman who’s boycotting Christmas.

MY REVIEW

This Christmas story involves Nick Santolli, his five-year-old niece, Cindy, and Joy, and it takes place in Brody Falls. Initially, this book started out as a Hallmark movie and quickly turned into National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and it had me laughing all the way.

Nick, the town “man-whore”, has assumed the care of his niece as both of her parent have been deployed overseas. Nick is determined to give Cindy the best Christmas ever. So, he seeks out the help of an old friend, Joy, but Nick doesn’t know that Joy is currently boycotting Christmas because her father is engaged to Joy’s best friend, Penny.

Penny is quite a character in this book. She reminds me of the “plastics” from Mean Girls. Joy and Penny’s banter throughout the book is brilliant.

Nick and Joy have been friends for years with Joy wanting more from Nick, but Nick had been given strict orders from his best friend, Joy’s brother, and Joy’s father, to stay away from Joy.

The story builds off their past and their promise to give Cindy the best Christmas ever.

This was my favorite of the three stories that I read. It is funny, sweet, and full of Christmas spirit.

I give it four out of four fairy godmothers.

Thank you to bestselling author, Melinda Curtis, for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. My reviews are based on my opinions of the book and are my opinions alone.

Gingerbread Kisses by Beate Boeker, USA Today and National bestselling author.  A cookie specialist finds sweet romance in the snowy Alps of Italy.

MY REVIEW

Carol has traveled to Dolomite Alps in Italy to attend her younger sister’s, Natasha, Christmas wedding to Angelo Bertolli, an extremely rich bachelor and provide her cookie catering services at the wedding.

images

This is also supposed to be a vacation for Carol as she has been working effortlessly to establish her own cookie business. However, her sister has turned into a bridezilla.

While Carol is in the hotel kitchen catering to bridezilla’s demands, Carol meets Tom, the hotel manager, a sexy Italian.

images (1)

Carol and Tom have an obvious connection but run into problems as Carol is based in Boston and Tom lives in Italy, and is further complicated by Natasha’s whimsical demands of her fiance, who is also Tom’s best friend.

Will true love reign with another Christmas wedding on the horizon or will spoiled Natasha ruin Carol’s chance at love?

I give this book 2.5 of out 4 “gingerbread cookies” (See Rating System above)
