A feast she wasn't expecting!
Clover Greene would sooner crawl into her oven than host family for Thanksgiving dinner. Yet another annual ritual of too much food, served with a side of criticism over "Clover's Bad Life Choices." This year, she needs to distract them all—with a handsome fake boyfriend. And she has the perfect guy in mind.
Contractor Erick Fields is the poster boy for sexy single dads, and Clover has been secretly crushing on him for ages. She certainly wasn't expecting Erick to agree to her insane charade…or to add lots of hot, wicked sex to the deal.
If they can pull it off, the worst Thanksgiving ever might give them something to be really thankful for!
OMG! Guys, this is so much fun!! It is delightfully witty and flirty and sexy and real and raw and so incredibly tenderly sweet. I need to collect myself so I can tell you why I loved this story to the moon and back.
First of all, the flirting. Often in the stories, there's some kind of banter, and it is often funny, but this was so refreshingly positive, not a mean thought behind anything Erick and Clover said to each other. It was amusing, playful, and silly, yet sweet, even uplifting, great flirting. The dialog was a pleasure to savor, smart joyful, and entertaining.
And then I am actually going to talk about the sex they were having. And they had a lot of it, in every detail (after all, it is a Blaze romance). And it was hot, sexy, and obviously satisfying. But what makes it so that I actually want to specifically talk about it, was the way it was written. It was passionate, and desirous as much as little rough, dirty, and wordy. Yep, they talked and laughed through it, and got to know each other even better and deeper, no pun intended, than otherwise would have been possible. All that made it so real, tender, loving, caring, and in a way innocent, it was unique, sweet, and very important part of the plot.
The relationship Erick and Clover both have with Erick's daughter was another highlight in the tale. I loved the three together, how they were with each other. The honesty, transparency that was honored in that little unit they made was refreshing.
Clover's family, that was the major conflict in the story, made the Thanksgiving dinner scene look and sound like many 'normal' real-life family get-togethers do for many. Even though it was painful and hurtful, I wanted to stand up and cheer for both Clover and Erick how the handled the situation.
So as you might gather, the writing is brilliant and delightful in this tale, that will hit home to many on the conflict side and make sigh and swoon on the romance end. And I am sure many will wish they could take Erick home with them for the holidays, to help tackle the relatives if for nothing else....
An enjoyable and pleasing story of one unforgettable Thanksgiving, of a wondrous fake relationship that stays so for about a minute, and turns into passion, affection, and excitement, with lively flirting and lots of dirty-talk that will surely entertain.
