12 Days of Christmas Review: THE BEST THING by Jaci Burton

About the book:

A year ago, Tori let her guard down and Brody Kent slipped right in, planting one hot, unforgettable kiss on her in a dark corner at the company Christmas party. Though the kiss surpassed her wildest dreams, she can’t let it happen again. She loves Brody, but he’s got a reputation for loving and leaving. She’ll have to keep her heart—and her libido—in check.

Brody can’t get the time of day from Tori—ever since that impulsive kiss, she’s avoided him with the same brutal efficiency she uses to manage his family’s construction company office. The company can’t afford to lose her, and Brody’s come to realize that he can’t live without her. But how can he convince Tori that he’s a changed man?

It just might take a Christmas miracle.

I loved this novella. “Manwhore” Brody doesn’t know what to do about his feelings for Tori and she doesn’t want to mess up her job or friendship with his family for just a quick fling. They both want each other, but they just can’t quite admit it to themselves or each other. The thing I loved the most about this book is what Brody has to do to win Tori. THE BEST THING has one of the best grovelling/big gesture scenes I’ve read in a long time.

12 Days of Christmas Review: WE’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS by HelenKay Dimon

About the book:

Book three in The Holloway Series

No man likes having his bedroom skills described as forgettable, but that’s just what Lila Payne does when she runs into Spencer Thomas again. When she discovers that he’d lied about his name during their brief three-day romp a few months before, she’s so angry that she pretends she doesn’t remember him.

Spence regrets his deception, but not as much as he regrets that their time together didn’t last longer. When she shows up in his town, looking to revitalize her uncle’s mountain resort, Spence is determined to help. Maybe rescuing Lila from a hopeless renovation project will get him in her good graces—and back in her bed.

Lila has no interest in being rescued, and Spence is insulted by her stubborn rebuffs and her “faulty” memory. But when rehab work turns into an after-hours meeting, the two of them are in for a night that just might prove unforgettable…

WE’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS is another great Christmas romance novella. I loved the other two books in this series and couldn’t wait to read Spence’s story. I think that Lila is the perfect heroine for him. I loved how she had him on his toes and completely turned around from the beginning. There story is sweet and sexy. I loved the way they both thought that they wanted one thing when they really wanted something very different.
