On the flap: On the first day of Christmas, my lover gave to me...
Matilda Campbell's plans to spend Christmas solo in the sun take an erotic turn when she encounters the handsome and enigmatic Miguel D'Oro on the plane to Mexico. As the CEO of a major firm, Tilda's used to being the one in charge--but now she'll have to learn how to take orders instead.
In the spirit of the season, Miguel offers Tilda naughty gifts for each of the twelve days of Christmas. There's just one rule: she must accept them--and fulfill his commands--or face the sensual consequences. Intrigued and aroused, Tilda agrees to let Miguel take control of her pleasure.
Tilda Campbell spends her days as a powerful and busy executive always busy and in charge. When her holiday vacation starts offs less than optimal, she decides it’s time to take some chances. On the plane to Mexico she meets a handsome man, Miguel D’Oro, whose family owns the Oro Resort. They quickly agree to a fling where he makes all the decisions and she goes along with it no questions asked. Through much of the story we actually know Tilda by Roo, her nickname. This moniker also seems to describe her vacation persona, which happens to be must less controlled that her CEO personality.
Their liaison initiates with tame gifts and rendezvous although equally filled with desire and lust. Each day Roo’s gifts and quest becomes more risqué and she has to push her boundaries while choosing to continue with the game. She also has to remind herself “it’s just a fling; it’s just a fling…”
All in all, this novella is a short sassy story to heat up the holidays! The chemistry between Miguel and Roo is tantalizing; they have a certain je ne sais quoi and give and take that makes the book an even quicker read. I really enjoyed about halfway through when they’re relationship and connection starts to change. My only sadness is I want more…and really is that a bad problem. I will definitely pick up more reads by Jeffe Kennedy in the future.
