Overview

The Oedipal Complex has never been so sexy…

Alex Carradine can’t believe his father wants to come and visit his ski resort. Could it be that after so many stormy years, “slick Mitch” Carradine wants to offer an olive branch? Maybe the old man is mellowing, settling down with the new lover he’s bringing along.

Then Alex realizes the acid truth. This is no warm family visit. His father’s new conquest is none other than the woman of Alex’s sexual fantasies, meant only to dangle tauntingly in front of his face. At least an unexpected blizzard has frozen his father out of the picture entirely.

Angeline Kastakis was looking forward to taking the next step in her relationship with Mitch. Too late, she realizes she’s been led into a familial battle zone. Now it’s Christmas and she’s marooned in a blizzard with an insolent, gorgeous hunk of man whose blazing blue eyes tell her loud and clear he wants her in his bed. Preferably tied to it with a bow.

There’s no escape in sight. But as Alex stirs her secret longing to be mastered by a man, escape is the last thing on her mind…

    Not a bad book Alex was a jerk for most of the book but he sure made it up to Angeline in the end. This book might not be for everyone meaning the sex. If you want the good old fashion sex then this surely is not for you they got a bit kinky and if you can handle that then this is for you. Angeline was a good character to read she held her own when Alex was being a jerk and I'm happy with the ending first book by the author look forward to more.

    Everybody has a different opinion when writting a review if we all had the same reviews or opinions it would be boring. Reviews can sometimes down play a really good book or up play a really bad book its up to us to read the book and judge for ourselves and draw our own conclusion thats the best thing about a review its like a silent debate....

    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.

    The perfect read to heat up your holidays!

    When Angeline is invited by her (older) boyfriend Mitch Carradine on a weekend trip to his son's ski resort, she gladly accepts, with hopes of taking their relationship to the next level. On her way there, she becomes stranded due to a massive blizzard and is rescued by none other than the handsomely rugged Alex, Mitch's son. With nowhere to go, Angeline is faced with spending her long awaited Christmas weekend, with a sexy stranger instead. There is no love lost between Alex and his father Mitch, but when he's in the presence of his father's latest conquest, Angeline, she sparks an uncontrollable, primal desire in him that tests his willpower like no woman ever has...

    Holiday Bound is a sexy and sensual story with character depth and substance. I was pleasantly surprised with the author's style of blending erotica with contemporary romance. Angeline is a fun leading lady who comes off as a little naive but quickly shows us she's anything but. Alex is an Alpha lover's dream come true with his brute manner, tender heart and dominant ways, it's hard to not fall for his character!

    Kery pens an erotic holiday tale that is sure to keep you warm on those cold winter nights. The pairing of characters is perfect and so is their chemistry. I devoured this short novella and though I was left wanting more, enjoyed it immensely. If a little submission and scorching scenes of passion are your cup of tea in a story, look no further, you won't be disappointed with Holiday Bound!

    Not Bad!!

    For being short and free, this novella was actually pretty good... Great story line. I actually was hoping for more of a fight scene between the father and son.

    A short read.

    It was okay, just wished the characters and plot were developed more.

    "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*
