A Holiday Novella in the Play-by-Play Series
October 20, 2015
Subgenre: Sports, Contemporary
An independent woman falls happily under the influence of hard bodies, pounding surf, and the embracing Hawaiian sun in this Play-by-Play romance from the New York Times bestselling author of All Wound Up.
Victoria “Tori” Baldwin is a successful sports agent whose career has always come first. She enjoys her work, her clients, and, on the occasional free night, a love life that’s short, hot, and uncomplicated.
While unwinding over Christmas in Hawaii, she chances upon a surfing competition, and all the lean hard men that come with it—especially Alex McConnell, a young surfer at the top of his game, and Ben Reynolds, ex-surfer and Alex’s business manager. The physical attraction Tori feels to these two completely different men is off the charts. They’re smart, sexy, and the nights are filled with the hottest passion Tori has ever felt.
Soon, Alex and Ben will move on to the next big wave and Tori will head back east. But as the days and nights go by, Alex and Ben’s feelings for Tori start to swell. Tori’s feeling it, too, and for the first time ever, she’s thinking twice about the men she’ll leave behind.
It won’t be long before this hot threesome has to decide if the romantic wave they’ve been riding is nothing more than a vacation fling, or the kind of love that could change all their lives forever. http://jaciburton.com/books/holiday-nights.php
Mele Kalikimaka! Merry Christmas in Hawaiian!
Jaci Burton’s characters have a very hot and very, very merry Christmas indeed during a surfing competition and vacation over the holidays in Hawaii. Jaci shows great skill in researching and understanding the sport and gives us just the right amount of relationship, character development and action. At no point did I roll my eyes while reading this very hot and very merry holiday story.
I also liked how she explored the ideas of having confusing feelings in a romantic situation that could turn sticky. I also liked how Tori’s open sexuality doesn’t come across as creepy or so open that it doesn’t mean anything. Tori also takes time to mentor a young sports aficionado in her career and romance goals.
I am not looking for the same experience, but it definitely made me want to pack our bags and hop on a plane to Oahu for a romantic getaway.
This is a great short story and a great last minute treat to send someone who loves a steamy, sort of kinky romance.
