A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
He's not who she expected, but he's exactly the man she needs…
When Chelsea Wayne drags Santa into a supply closet for a little office party nookie, she assumes the man in the suit is her on-again/off-again coworker boyfriend. Instead, it's Rafe St. Sebastian, a man known for his hard-driving ways in business as well as the bedroom--and, kill her now, the brand spanking new owner of Las Ventanas--who grants her naughtiest Christmas wishes.
So much for her reputation, not to mention her career.
Rafe needs to close three acquisitions to prove to his father he's ready to take the helm of St. Sebastian Enterprises. A hot interlude in a supply closet after deal number two seems like the perfect illicit Christmas bonus. Unfortunately, when that "bonus" becomes the key to the final deal, he finds himself back in bed--so to speak--with Chelsea, and after their steamy tryst, he's not interested in keeping things professional…
I received a copy of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating!
Oh. My. Hotness. Batman. Wow! I know this is only the second book by Samanthe Beck that I have read, but really that's all it takes to realize that when it comes to her writing you can expect lots of fun, a sweet and steamy romance, laugh out loud humor and lots and lots of heat. I absolutely loved Compromising Her Position. If you're a big Entangled Brazen fan, like I am, this one is absolutely a must read. Definitely top tier of the Brazen line.
The characters in this book are so great. Chelsea is the people pleaser type. She puts everyone else before herself and will bend over backwards to make sure people are happy. But instead of this coming off as her being this weak, annoying pushover, Chelsea is actually extremely endearing. I absolutely adored her to pieces. Especially when she would let loose and shed some of that nice girl that she is to her core and flip Rafe's world upside down.
Rafe is every bit as sexy as his name suggests he would be. I mean, Rafe St. Sebastian. Come on! Too much sexy. I loved his confidence and the fact that, sure, he has a tiny bit of an ego. But it manifests itself in this sexy, self-confident way. Wow, could I try to fit the word sexy one more time into describing this guy? Sheesh! I just mean that instead of him sitting there with a cocky grin saying things like "all the babes love me" it's more of the confident way he'll whisper the most naughty things to Chelsea about what he knows she wants him to do to her all while she's trying, trying being the key word, to deny it's true. Basically he's so much fun and extremely swoon worthy. Oh and did I mention sexy? *Grins*
The story itself was a whole lot of fun as well. I laughed out loud on more than one occasion and had a smile on my face from start to finish. So it, in my opinion, is borderline insta-love. Because while they did spend lots of time together, I'd say it was 60% heat, 25% business related and maybe 15% of the getting to know you on a deeper level. But the ridiculous amounts of chemistry between Chelsea and Rafe along with the fact that they were so freaking sweet and playful when they were together just kind of made me feel like who cares if they didn't know each other very deeply before they fell into forever. I just want more freaking Chelsea and Rafe please!
Like I said in the opening this is an absolute must read for Brazen lovers. And if you've never picked one up before but curiosity is nibbling at your heels I would have to say that this book would be a good starting off point. But be warned, they're a little bit like book crack, especially when they're so well written and have truly lovable characters like Samanthe Beck's do! Beginning to end this book was engaging and full of heart. Simply put...I freaking adored it!
Huge thanks to Entangled Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this book!
