The quick of it is that Faith is over men. <and whew I can't blame her. her ex was a piece.of.work> And this is a problem for Connor since he totally has a thing for her and wants to get real close to her. A couple scary movies with the girls and a creepy noise outside her door and BOOM! he's got his chance and is totally taking it. He's gonna stick to her like glue...you know...just in case there really is danger a brewing :D
"What do you usually do in the evening?" He was still staring at her, his mouth kicked up into a small smile on one side. He was also still rubbing his lip with his finger which was beyond distracting.
"I...um." She jerked her eyes away from his mouth and looked down at her glass. "I usually drink a glass of wine, watch some television, and then take a bath." When he was silent for too long, she looked up at him again.
"I am down with that plan." His small smile widened into a grin.
She allowed herself a smile. "You are not following me into the bathroom. You can protect me from out here."
He leaned farther into the corner of her couch, looking totally at east. "I'm not sure about that." His grin persisted and she felt her head shake.
And Faith (aka Cupcake) was a fantastic heroine too. I could totally be friends with her and bond over the love of sweet treats. She ran a little bit too hard now and again and I wanted to shake her for it because...seriously...Connor! but she was fun, sweet and could be a little naughty with him which was delightful.
The chemistry was so hot it could melt snow! Yeah. These two were amazing together. When they were getting along, when he was driving her crazy hounding her steps (again in case of danger!), when they were working together, playing together and especially when they found themselves all snowbound for the holidays. Noms! They were just on fire and the banter and looks between them steamy fun.
"I had no idea this place was equipped with a hot tub," she told him now.If you only read one Christmas romance this year...make it A Bad Boy for Christmas. It'll sweep you away and leave you smiling, sighing and totally satisfied. This was Lemmon at her absolute best! The romance, the characters, the magic of the season...it'll stick with you for all the right reasons.
"Got it up and running a while back. All I had to do was slip out here and turn up the heat. Then get you to join me."
"I thought you meant sex. This might be better."
He opened his eyes to slits and took her in. Steam lifted into the air between them. "Wait'll we have sex in here. That's next. But first, recovery. You wear me out."
"Me? I don't have any oomph left in me after that session."
"Waiting for a 'no'," he said, his eyes sinking shut again.
"I'm serious. I'm spent."
"Still not a no."
Dammit. He was right. Because she wouldn't say no to what he was offering.
"Fine, but give me a minute or ten."
"Take ten, Cupcake. I'm in no hurry."
Do you have a favorite from Lemmon?
