Saving the CEO By Jenny Holiday 99 cents!
Saving the CEO (Entangled Indulgence) (49th Floor Novels) - Jenny Holiday

He's making a list...and breaking every rule on it...

Real estate mogul Jack Winter has rules. Lots of rules. After all, a man doesn't build an empire without a little discipline. And on page one of the rulebook? Don't sleep with your employees. Especially when there's a multimillion dollar real estate deal at stake...
 
Luckily for Jack, Cassie James isn't really his employee. She's a hot bartender who just happens to be the math genius he needs, and if they share a wicked chemistry? Well, that's just a sexy little perk. So they strike a deal: Cassie helps Jack with the merger. And until the deal goes through at Christmas, they can indulge every impulse they desire.
 
But the more rules Jack makes, the more he seems to break...

SEASON'S READINGS Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses by Jenny Hale

 

 
Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe KissesA captivating and delightful holiday romance. Jenny Hale hit the spot with this book the loving warmth of the holiday spirit, finding true love and finding out what's most important in life. It has the right amount of holiday cheese ( I love the cheesiness of Christmas movies) without it getting too cliched. Nick Sinclair was an obvious Scrooge but showed signs early on of being redeemable. Abby Fuller's pregnancy put her dreams of being an interior designer on hold but now her son is older and her grandfather's Parkinson's getting worse any extra money would be great, so when one of her in-home nursing patients recommends decorating her grandson's house Abby would be foolish to turn it down.

Nick's father died young and left the company to Nick. Nick feels a sense of obligation to make sure the company is successful, as a result Nick becomes an even worse workaholic than his father to the point it ruined his first marriage and his relationship with his mother. Nick has an instant attraction to Abby and he's patient and kind to Max, her son, he finds himself constantly distracted by them and spending as much time as he can just being with them. Nick feels like he's being pulled in two directions his want to be with Abby and his obligation to work. Nick needs to figure out what's more important to him before he loses his chance with Abby for good. Abby didn't intend to fall in love with Nick but when he makes time for her and Max in his busy day and takes time to text and call her it's hard not to see the wonderful man he is but he keeps running hot and cold with her pushing her away and than holding her close and to top it all off Nick is in the process of moving away and she doesn't think his feelings for her are strong enough to keep him in a house he hates.

Overall, it's a great story to get you in the Christmassy mood and appreciate your family and what you have. I loved the characters and the writing it's my first Jenny Hale book and it won't be my last.

One and Only
One and Only - Jenny Holiday I think this is the kind of book that "a sexy romp" is the phrase for. The beginning... Whew. Clunky. Half of it felt like Canadian geography. In the end though, this opposites attract couple had me rooting for them. I enjoyed how intimacy was built and how the heroine really instigating bigger moments for the couple. What was a little odd about this book, though, was it was like reading all the stereotypically romantic things you'd do with a boyfriend in high school. In a sense that made it fun, but it also meant these two were not in their everyday. Some things I liked about that.

I appreciate Holiday's vocabulary. Truly. I never felt like I was reading the same old tired lines. There's one thing there at the end I'd change, by essentially cutting out the end because that situation is tired, it's silly, and I like when women make the grand gesture. ... Instead we end up with a cheese factor of approximately 11. Edit, people, edit.

All in all, this rambling is meant to say this is another solid romance by this author. A sexy romp, if you will.

Sex Education by Jenny Davis
Sex Education - Jenny Davis

Trigger warning: A Small part where they discuss abortion & rape.

 

Please don't let the title put you off!

 

Amazing story. However, just a little warning, this book broke my heart. I had a vague sense of reading this before and realized I must have picked it up somewhere as a teen, so this is one of the books I read and forgot about ages ago. (I mean... that title lol)

Sex was a lot more taboo when I was kid/teen, so I probably read it and hid it, mistakingly thinking I was doing something "naughty" This book talks about sex in detail, not graphic though, but if you are uncomfortable about saying the proper terms for sex, human body parts...etc...well... this book might not be for you. Though I think you should still give it a chance! They also talk about abortion & rape.

Considering it is about sex education (and so much more) the book doesn't feel that outdated. This should be read by all ages, and of course for kids and teens also just learning about their bodies. It isn't a how-to guide by any means, but there is stuff in here that are important for all people to know/remember. Do we hide stuff about sex from our children and never let them be educated or do we let them learn about it and know how to handle themselves if/when they decide to have sex?

 

This book made me ugly cry, in fact, I am trying to hold it together while writing this.
