Secret Santa Baby by Robin Covington

Secret Santa Baby by Robin Covington

Tessa Stoneman hasn't been able to get long-time friend and business partner Nicholas Boone out of her head since they shared a single kiss in college. Even when she dated Nicholas's best friend. Now that she's giving up her position at GameNerdz to strike out on her own—and now that she's single—maybe it's the right time to see if there's still something between them.

Nicholas knows once Tessa leaves the company she helped found, they might drift apart. Before she starts her own company in the new year, he wants to woo the woman he fell in love with during college. So he poses as her Secret Santa, gifts her with items from the song "Santa Baby," and plans a big reveal at the company holiday party. But when his best friend wants to rekindle his romance with Tessa, will Nicholas lose his last chance?

About the Author

On her fortieth birthday, Robin Covington decided that having a mid-life crisis and finding a boy-toy were far too tacky, so she delved a little deeper into the "bucket list" and pulled out the long-shelved dream of becoming an author. Now, she spends her time writing sizzling romance where the hero and heroine can't keep their hands off each other. She doesn't miss the boy-toy at all. Robin lives in Maryland with her hilarious husband, brilliant children, and ginormous puppy.

I'm a new fan of Robin's work and just finished reading this book and I have to say even for a short read it packed a good punch. I dont feel like anything was left out in telling this short story.

Tessa and Nick have been friends for a really long time, but after a shared kiss in college they both have always wanted more. But after that kiss Nick never made a move so she ended up dating his best friend for years. Now that Tessa is single, Nick is ready to make his move. He decides to play her secret Santa and send her some of the gifts mentioned in the song "Santa Baby". He is determeined to win her over, even if his best friend is also trying to win her over again. This was a VERY short read, at only 54 pages, so the story moves very quickly. I really thought this one was sweet. I was happy that Nick still kept going after Tessa even though his friend was thinking about getting back with her. He seemed like a pretty big jerk anyway! This story was probably a little over the top but I still enjoyed it

4 stars I really enjoyed Secret Santa Baby. This was a quick, sweet and entertaining read. I loved both Tessa and Nicholas's characters, it was heartwarming watching them move from friends to lovers. Another great read by Robin Covington, I'm a fan of her writing and I highly recommend this book.

The perfect holiday de-stresser!! This one is short and sweet but oh so sexy too! They've wanted and loved each other for years but he took too long to act and she was tired of waiting. Now though they are both single and he's not letting this opportunity go. When Nick arranges to be Tessa's secret Santa, he plans to show her exactly how much she means to him!! Don't miss this one. It's a fun quick read that will leave you smiling. This is a reissue but if you haven't read it yet now's the time. I highly recommend it.

Nicholas is adorable. Attractive, sensitive and in love. Now he needs to step up to the plate and get the girl. Tessa feelings for Nicholas are complicated but run deep. Unsure of how to proceed she has never pursued them. Robin Covington's friends to lover's story is funny, heartstopping and endearing. I received a copy of Secret Santa Baby in exchange for an honest review. Every girl's fantasy brought to life through the pages and words of a deliciously irresistible novel.

4 - "Best. Secret. Santa. Ever." Stars. If you like Robin Covington, then you will love this seasonal 'Lunch-time special'. Friends since college, Nicholas Boone sits back and watches his best friend and business partner Damien get together with the girl of his dreams, because he was too slow out of the blocks. ""I decided to go big..." "You went huge, baby." Little does he know, that now single and read to mingle after her split from Damien; Tessa is more than a little interested in him as well... Secret Santa, has never been so sexy, and although a quick read, it did not lose any of its impact or sexiness because of it.

This is a very short novella but a well formed story and a lovely quick festive read. Nicholas Boone has been attracted to Tessa Stoneman for years. They shared a kiss whilst in college but she then went out with his best friend, Damien, for a while and he backed off. He set up GameNerdz with that same friend and Tessa works with them there, but she’s about to leave and he’s determined not to let her out of his life, he’s going to woo her by being her Secret Santa and plans a big reveal at the company’s Christmas party. . . . He’s not sure how she’ll react. Tessa has secretly loved Nick for years, too and she’s not going to leave without at least making Nick aware of her attraction to him, though she’s also worried about spoiling their friendship. Nick is a delightful, somewhat reserved gentleman who really deserves to succeed in finding love with Tessa, who is portrayed as a clever, talented and determined young lady. They make a great couple! Will the festive spirit help them find their HEA? Will Damien get between them, yet again? You’ll just have to read it yourself to find out! This is a cute, short festive story and a delightful entertaining read. It won’t take you long to read it and it will certainly help get you in the festive mood by putting a smile on your face. I really enjoyed it and hope there will be a sequel to enable Damien to also find his true love! Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

I do wish this book would have been longer, because I really enjoyed the character and it would have been even better if it was a pulled sized novel.  My main reason behind this: I am a sucker for nerds, and add in a buff British nerd and I think my heart has stopped. The book was a short and sweet novel that circled around to characters that missed their shot in College and after many years are finally making up for it. It’s a cute read that makes me wish a guy would take the Santa Baby song literally for me too. I did feel that the characters love moved really fast, but I guess considering they had been in love with each other for almost eight years probably had something to do with it. One thing I wasn’t sure of was the character Damien; he is very confusing to understand—basically he’s a CEO, playboy, best friend of the to main characters, and he doesn’t understand what love is and gives up pretty easy—a little unsettling. However, I still really enjoyed this short novella. It brought a smile to my face and I may have been drooling in the process. Good: Nick—I like me some nerdy buff romantic britishman. Tessa—She seems pretty cool and determined to prove herself. Bad:  Damien—not really sure I understood him as a character. Overall (Writing style, story line, and general): Overall the book was a good fast and easy read that left me smiling. There was nothing confusing and even though it was a short novella nothing was really missing. Although, it still would have been awesome if it was made into a full novel. It left my toes curling and my hopes high while I dreamt of my Knight and Shinning Armour that was basically a replica of Nick.

Tis the season for holiday reads!! I can't seem to get enough this year. I love a good romantic holiday book and Entangled Publishing has plenty of them including this one!! This is a pretty short story, but it gives you exactly what you are looking for in a great holiday read. It's sweet, it's romantic, and it's sexy. It leaves you with an overall sense of joy! This is a dual POV story so we get to know what is going on in both Tessa and Nick's head. We start off with Tessa and learn that she has had a thing for Nick forever. He's been her friend for a long time, and they did kiss a long time ago, but she doesn't know if he has any feeling other than friendship. Then there's Nick, who has also had a thing for her forever too. He is pulling out all the stops to try to win her over and it's actually super cute. He is really sweet and smart and everything she wants in a man. The Secret Santa gifts are awesome! Nick put a lot of thought into the whole thing. I don't like that he feels like he needs to buy all these fancy gifts and go big to get the girl, but it is a sweet gesture. Of course she would want him without any of it, but it's the point that he is trying to buy her attention that irks me a bit. I do love how he is so detail oriented about it all though and making sure everything is just right. I won't say I wouldn't love if someone did that for me. Their chemistry is great and it has you wanting to yell at them that they need to be together because they love each other. This was quick and entertaining with a little bit of steam to satisfy us. I really enjoyed their story and it made me smile. This was a perfect holiday read when you just want a quick escape that will leave you with a smile on your face!

## Very, very short. There was no conflict. The couple was already in love as the story starts. We didn't get the chance to know them. Sweet but insignificant.

My Rating:  3.5 Stars My Review:  This book was exactly what I expected it to be fun and a good holiday read.  I  loved Robin Covington's first book from Entangled, A Night of Southern Comfort, and I expected to enjoy this one as well & I did.  Robin is able to write a short and sweet novella about Christmas as still give you details and background about the characters - I love it!  The characters in this book are really good & I love their history together.  I thought Tessa was great and Nicholas, well yeah, just yum.  =)   The chemistry on the pages of this book was awesome & to be able to see it there between them while they are talking to one another was fantastic!   I loved how this book is centered on a holiday song, Santa Baby!  It sets the mood for the book and the writing totally lives up to it.  It's fun and sexy and good all the way through.  My favorite part was Tessa & Nick's "weekly terrible TV night."  I will leave it at that, kind of ;) - this part had me laughing, giggling and going yummy, yes please all at the same time!!  Loved it!!! Yes, my little kittens, I think you will enjoy this short little novella so be sure to check it out.
