With everything being so busy this time of year, I gravitate towards the short stories that I can pick up and put down between baking, decorating and wrapping. So here's one of the little tidbits I enjoyed this week...
A little bit more sex than story, Bound for the Holidays by Mackenzie McKade is a hot read. Quick and flirty, this book is as difficult to pass up as Angie’s invitation to spend the night with her boss. Mentions of family ground both main characters but really it’s a simple story of the beginning of their relationship. By the end, I wish I could’ve known more but as it is, I enjoyed Angie and Ryan’s story.
Already resigned to spending Christmas alone, Angie cannot believe it when she finds herself in the arms of her new boss at the office party. Their attraction is hot and his promises of things to come set her on fire. And then when she finds herself with not just one, but two gorgeous men - a powerful executive and one sexy cowboy – her holiday wishes are fulfilled.
Ryan has never considered not sharing his women with his best friend Wade so it was only natural to introduce him to Angie. But when she stirs feelings inside him, Ryan realizes that one decadent night of ménage was enough and now he wants her all to himself. Finding that time and understanding that they were on the same wavelength only reinforces his feelings.
To Ryan’s surprise, what starts out as hot sex turns into something deeper. I just wish the story of Angie and Ryan could’ve happened without the ménage with Wade. It just didn’t seem necessary and it felt like a dark spot on their beginning. Regardless, I liked the characters and found myself looking for the second book in the series to see if Wade gets his HEA.
