First She Wanted Naughty...

Madison Greenwood's first post-college Christmas is more Sex and the City than It's a Wonderful Life.

Overview

First She Wanted Naughty...

Madison Greenwood's first post-college Christmas is more Sex and the City than It's a Wonderful Life. Sure, she does the home-for-the-holidays thing, but with her cynical gay pal Leo tagging along, her mom confessing to an extramarital affair, and every guy she ever dated (or lusted after) in high school beating a hot path to her front door, the movie of her life is anything but G-rated. Still, a girl's got to sow her wild oats while she can, right?

...Then She Wanted Nice...

Five years later, Madison's more interested in nesting than sowing, and the Christmas of her twenty-sixth year finds her looking forward to the gift of a proposal. Her Scottish boyfriend, Ian, is picture-perfect...in an impressionistic sort of way. The idea of him--his looks, his career, his to-die-for accent--fuels fantasies of home, hearth, and a whole new life across the Pond. Too bad the reality is a sham. A married sham.

...Now All She Wants For Christmas Is The Real Thing

By the ripe old age of thirty-one, Madison would like to believe she's learned something about relationships. About what she really wants, and what she sure as hell doesn't need.  As the holidays roll around once more, she's grateful, as always, for the blessing of good friends, but lonely for that one special person. The one she might just find under the mistletoe the minute she stops looking...

There was no character development in this book's heroine and she wasn't even likeable to begin with. Her life revolves around sex and alcohol, alcohol and sex. You don't find yourself rooting for her that she'll find Mr. Right. I enjoyed one character in this book- Leo. Nothing in this book was worthwhile - all the characters are constantly drinking, going to parties, and having sex. One wishes they would find something more worthwhile to do.

Fabulous!! This book was very well written. I love how the author takes you on a 'past, present and future' of Madison's Christmas flings. The story line is one that will keep you on your toes. I reccomend this to anyone who is looking for a funny and humorous perspective on being single at christmas time.
