    Something Interesting..

    There was something about this that had me not wanting to stop. Maybe the sexually explicit material, or maybe the fact that the characters were so realistic. Or maybe I felt a sort of connection with the two. Either way, this book was definitely fun to read out loud to my man!! ;]

    You couldn’t ask for a nicer holiday present, in the shape of a story. The author very carefully tiptoes around the concept that the heroine, Angeline, is the putative girlfriend of Daddy Mitch Carradine. So when son Alex oversteps his bounds, so to speak, there is a big hint of forbidden love, but since Angeline and Mitch have not yet been physically involved, it’s not - quite - cheating.

    Alex is much easier to like than Angeline. He has more of a definite personality, whereas Angeline is more go-along-to-get-along. She should be pissed that Mitch has sent her alone into the middle of nowhere, in the teeth of an oncoming storm, all by herself. The story has her getting her vehicle stuck in a place where Alex can hear and reach her - but what if he hadn’t? She would’ve died in the storm, and that thought, getting mad at Mitch because he risked her frickin’ life while he was busy with More Important Things, never crosses her mind. Angeline does grows more of a backbone by story’s end.

    I want Alex in my stocking for Christmas. He’s super-tall, super-strong, handsome, sensitive enough to keep his grandmother’s Christmas ornaments, as well as those he’s carved himself, on hand. Because Christmas is important to Angeline, he even cuts down a Christmas tree to bring into his home, although he has a large already decorated one in the ski resort they can’t quite reach.

    I have to say, I’m not a fan of the last name Carradine for a fictional hero. These days, I always wonder if this is the Carradine from Kung Fu, or the Carradine from Dallas; IMO the author would be better picking a name with less pop culture recognition. I also believed the forgiveness in the end for Daddy Dearest came a little too easy.

    I thought the story moved a little too fast to feigned bondage and spanking. I thought the scene set in the exercise room was both ridiculous, and made me want to get my own exercise room.

    I must say, smokin’ hot sex covers a multitude of distractions and minor flaws. This novella is superhot and one that I will probably be rereading for many holiday seasons to come.

    "Hot and sizzling to scorch the pages. Need ice cubes to cool down."

    Beth Kery writes hot, sizzling romances that scorched the pages (or your laptop or e-reader) in your hands, not to mention your need for ice cubes to cool down.

    Alex Carradine, the hero, comes across as primal, powerful and so blatantly male, the total opposite of his sophisticated and elegant father Mitchell. However, in addition to his extreme hotness and raw maleness, Alex is also very sweet.

    For those who like their intimate scenes flaming hot with the fires still roaring, then this is the book for you. All because of Alex, a dominant male who likes to tie up his women and paddle their backsides. All in the name of pleasure, of course. Yet by far, the hottest scene for me is the one in Alex's workout room told from his point of view.

    Note to readers: This book contains scenes of light bondage, domination and spanking. I'm not into BDSM myself, but I really enjoyed reading this, so I have no doubt you will as well. *wink*
