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.

    Brody should have to eat crow for lying. He needs to work for Tori. Thanks for the review.

    I’ve been eyeing this one…trying to resist buying too many now since I don’t have a lot of time to read at the moment!
