** Book Review ** THE TROUBLE WITH MISTLETOE by Jennifer Snow

The Trouble With MIstletoe

4 1/2 STARS!

Super sweet story about finding a second chance with a past love!  Loved the characters … other than wanting to kick Victoria a few times for not seeing the awesome guy right in front of her face! 🙂

Victoria Mason left her small town home in Brookhollow a dozen years ago for the bright lights of New York City.  She loves the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoys her high powered job for an acquisitions firm, but she’s not overjoyed that it’s bringing her back to the small town she left behind to make a deal … and she’s even less happy about who that deal is with!

Luke Dawson owns the sporting goods store that Victoria is in town to make an offer on … and he’s also the former fiance that she left 2 weeks before their wedding!

Will she be able to get Luke to agree to the deal that will make her boss happy?  And more importantly, will she be able to get it done fast enough to keep her from falling back into those old feelings that still live in her heart??

Synopsis: Body Contact is the second of a three-part erotic series from New York Times and USA best-selling author Cathryn Fox.Asking pro football player Jack Rider to teach me everything he knows about sex might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I’m not so sure I can handle a guy like him. I thought he’d just straight up do me, ridding me of my pesky virginity sooner rather than later. But no, he had his own ideas about bringing me up to speed on sex. His two weeks of slow seduction might just be the death of me, but since he’s the one in charge, I have to play the game his way. Not that I’m not enjoying it. I am. Who wouldn’t, right? I guess I just can’t help but wonder how I’ll ever let another man touch me after him.

When hot as hell Danielle Lang showed up and asked me to teach her about sex, I thought I was hallucinating. Turns out the beautiful psychologist needed an extra bit of schooling in all things sexual so she could teach a class.

I’m always up for helping a friend. I mean, it’s the least I can do. What I wasn’t expecting is for her to turn the tables and teach me a few things. Only this short-term promise of two weeks in her bed is going by a little too quickly. Not that I’m thinking forever or anything.

I’ve got a football career to get back to. And she doesn’t want to be a part of my world. There’s no way we can be together—so I’m going to make sure I enjoy every sexy second….

Love In Bloom: The Ryders #3
By: Melissa Foster

Releasing August 17, 2016
World Literary Press

 

BLURB:

Actress Trish Ryder takes her job seriously and has no time for those who don’t. When she’s awarded a major role in a new movie featuring America’s hottest rock star, Boone Stryker, she’s beyond excited. The six-two, tattooed hunk of burning desire is known for his dedication to his craft—but when he ditches their first meeting, she begins to wonder if he’s just another rocker with a great PR team.

Sex, booze, women, and music pretty much sum up Boone Stryker’s private world. He’s coasted through life playing by his own rules with plenty of people willing to cover his tracks, and he’s not likely to change—until he meets a woman who refuses to give him the time of day, much less anything more.

Sparks fly from the first moment Trish and Boone meet—Tensions run hot and desire runs hotter when they’re trapped together on a remote location with no place to hide. Will sparks ignite, or will a hurricane douse the flames?
