I feel like I need a cigarette after reading this book. I kid you not, this is one of the hottest bondage themed books I have read in a very long time. It not only had a billionaire--but I believe the female lead was a billionaire also which made it that much more enjoyable to see a strong female lead that knew exactly what she wanted. I can't seem to gush enough about Tilda. She was independent, owned her sexuality, and was smart. She was willing to submit to all the demands laid out for her, and still keep her mind about her. This was a very unique and very clever spin on the 12 days of Christmas. I was turning each page and giggling wondering what Miguel had in store for her next. The story didn't just have the proper amount of smexy elements, but it had the right amount of emotional turmoil to keep the reader engaged and excited about each page turn. I was turned on by each creative way Miguel had to make her submit. I also enjoyed the fact that he totally underestimated her. He assumed she was one type of woman, and then when she opened her mouth and proved she wasn't stupid, he was tossed off his game and he had to accept the fact she was more than just--well a woman to toss aside and get bored with. Tilda made me happy. Jeffe Kennedy also made me thrilled that a woman was written with the power over her own sexuality and SHE was the 'billionaire' in a book. Miguel didn't want to tame her, yes, he wanted to own her, but not break the smart woman she was in the process. As a whole the story had everything. Great BDSM scenes, strong storyline, great characters, and christmas themed story that is great to read at all times of the year! *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from Carina Press Via NetGalley*

This slightly sweet and extra spicy novella takes the traditional 12 days of Christmas theme and turns it onto its head in this decidedly naughty version as Tilda meets Miguel, the owner of a luxury resort while on vacation over the Christmas holidays from her demanding job as CEO for a medical supply company. She's come to get away from it all, and while Miguel is there on business, he's definitely not immune to pleasure and offers Tilda a different kind of escape, one where he follows the song everyone knows with his own kinky version of gifts for Tilda. For a woman always in control, it's a godsend and she is delighted to participate. But when they find emotions coming into play, and discover that their no-strings affair is having some unexpected side effects, can they take their sex-only fling and turn it into something even better for the New Year? What a refreshing treat! Unlike the more saccharine induced Christmas themed stories out there (which have their place for sure), there is nary a mistletoe or Santa in sight here. Sexy lingerie, sex toys and BDSM play are on the menu instead. As a result, the sex scenes between Tilda and Miguel are, as expected, super steamy and the inventiveness of Miguel's 'gifts' was quite enjoyable. The setting is idyllic, this tropical paradise, and I liked how Tilda embraced her sensual side and really got into the vacation spirit. But of course real life doesn't stop even while on vacation and it's Miguel who has the difficulties in this story, challenged eventually by Tilda to share what's really going on, despite his efforts to keep her in a 'vacation fling only' box, at least at first. Gradually the trust that started things off leads to a greater intimacy, that of sharing their thoughts and not just their bodies, and it was great to see Miguel realize that he could have more with Tilda if he would open himself up to the possibilities of a relationship off the island. The story has a lovely happy for now ending and was a delightful, sexy read. 4 stars.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   My Initial Reaction… I devoured Five Golden Rings. It was one of those deliciously steamy reads that is just entirely too much fun to stop reading!   The Characters… Mostly, I liked Tilda, the main character from whose point of view Five Golden Rings is told. I think what I liked most about Tilda was the way she wanted to forget her insecurities and her day-to-day life and just be daring for once. She’s a CEO for a Fortune 500 company, so she’s smart and powerful – and yet she still has some insecurities. When we first meet her, she’s at her lowest point. On a plane to Cozumel on Christmas Eve, alone, drowning her sorrows in margaritas. She’s just been dumped and is taking her romantic Christmas Holiday alone. So when the very sexy and fascinating lawyer, whose family just so happens to own the resort that she will be staying at, suggests a very kinky rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas, Tilda’s in. Why not, right?   I enjoyed Miguel, too. He’s sexy and delightfully creative – the Twelve Days of Christmas that he comes up with for Tilda is tintilating, and I was always anxious to see what the next day would bring. He’s in Cozumel working on some sort of problem with the family business, something we don’t find out about because he doesn’t want Tilda to “worry her pretty little head” about it. Ok, he doesn’t actually say that – but he sees Tilda as a pretty fling and he plays the role of the DOM very well. He has no idea that she’s a CEO of a Fortune 500 company and she plays SUB so well, that he doesn’t think otherwise. I found his attitude toward her annoying at times, but most the time it didn’t bother me – it just fit the typical DOM/SUB relationship.   The Story… If you’re looking for a Christmas themed erotica, Five Golden Rings is where to go. Yes, it’s set in Cozumel – so you don’t have the snow and Santa or his elves. But you’ve got 12 days of DOM/SUB style sexiness, all centered on the “Twelve Days of Christmas Song.” Jeffe Kennedy wrote some really creative adaptations to the song, and I enjoyed pretty much every minute. I was surprised by how well she played up the sexual tension – for an erotica she spends a pretty good amount of time making you wonder when you’ll actually get to the moment, which I found added to the excitement. And when they did happen, the sex scenes were incredibly well-written, creative, and exciting.   The relationship developing between Tilda and Miguel is well-done. It’s obviously centered around their sexual escapades, but there’s the added dimension of what’s going on with Miguel and the family business. Tilda doesn’t know what gong on – because he doesn’t tell her – and as I grew to like Miguel more and more, I worried more and more about what was happening. And grew more and more frustrated that he wouldn’t confide in Tilda and let him help her. So that element of the story worked really well as a sub plot.   Concluding Sentiments… I really enjoyed Five Golden Rings, mostly for it’s creative sexiness. The characters were likeable and the plot really worked to move the story forward. A fast, fun, sexy read.
