About this deal

I enjoyed how caring Nolan was towards his family and I probably would have preferred this book if it had been more about Nolan and his family than the ‘romance’. But as far as I’m concerned, the only way to normalize fat being okay is to stop beating readers over the head with the flipping’ fat talk. The plot set-up was super fun and I liked Bee, and the representation felt super natural and just really nice to read about. While I wish I could've enjoyed the surface level festiveness of a Christmassy/holiday-themed movie being filmed over the holidays, the promised fun and hilarity and tension of both the bad boy ex-boyband member trying to rehab his image paired up with an actual sex worker trying to branch into a different kind of film -- and also stay wholesome so as not to let anyone in on the secret of her career -- just never panned out. I read the first 300 pages over the weekend and I had to force myself to pick this back up and finish it.

When I found out it was about a corn producer (not the main male character) and corn actress doing their first wholesome Christmas movie, I was like okay this is going to be so good and fun if done right. So he’s decided to branch out into wholesome Christmas movies for the Hope Channel (think Hallmark). Bee shook her head, dropping her hand from my face so fast you’d think my jaw was made of exploding phone batteries. The hero is a curvy adult film star and the hero is a former boy band member trying to fix his reputation.I got a little stressed halfway through just waiting for everything to blow up and cause issues for them, so the middle dragged a bit and was a little slow for me, but overall I loved the book. A producer who is financing adult films having hard time to differentiate his alter Uncle Ray-Ray identity and his Teddy Fletcher- romcom producer act who finances sweet Hallmark-ish holiday movies. The heroine Bee is a curvy adult film/porn star, and she’s been cast into a very clean, Hallmark-like Christmas movie. Boy band heart throb Nolan has been cast as the male lead role in an effort to clean up his bad boy image.

It had the over the top Christmas setting and names, but with a spicy flare I’ve never seen before in this setting! I spent the night oscillating between wanting to vomit and wanting to saw my own hands off with a rusty butter knife. El libro llegó empacado como si no hubiese forma de que se maltratara porque traía plástico burbuja y bolsa de protección, ma caja no estaba golpeada ni nada lo que me hace creer que el libro lo enviaron dañado. Now Bee and Nolan are sneaking off for quickies on set, keeping their new relationship a secret from the Hope Channel’s execs.Sierra Simone is a USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling former library employee (who spent too much time reading romance novels at the information desk).

On my award-winning book blog, you can find a range of reviews of YA to Adult books and all the topics in-between. The audacity of this magical author duo to sneak in and steal Christmas in the sexiest way possible . She lives in North Texas with her husband who loves her, her dog who adores her, and her cats who tolerate her. To make this movie a success all Teddy and Bee have to do is make sure nobody finds out about their involvement in the adult entertainment industry. Plus, I’m not into Catholic priests in general given the large amount of them who have abused children (It’s a big thing here and I expect it’s the same in the US – I saw Spotlight).And her co-star, Nolan Shaw, an ex-boyband member infamous for his own x-rated antics, not only knows it, but is secretly her biggest fan. Something I really enjoyed and appreciated about this book is all the body positivity and sex work positivity. The side characters also added SO much to the story and I can’t wait to learn more about them in future books. The writing is seamless – there is no obvious change from one author to another – and funny, from the hilarity which ensues from having a costume director used to working in porn suddenly thrust (pardon the pun) into a time travel Christmas movie involving a duke, period clothing, the efforts the porn crew and Bee make to keep their other jobs secret and Nolan’s attempts to not let on that he knows who Bee is, to the metaphors used.

I haven’t read Sinner yet, but AFAIK Sean reacted to his sister’s death by leaving religion behind him and chases money, sex, and whatever makes him feel good in the moment. If you are ready for a hot and heavy story with some holiday vibes, I urge you to get your hands on this book. She reads contemporary, historical, a little paranormal, urban fantasy and romantic suspense, as well as erotic romance and more recently, new adult.

However, his career has been going downhill since he had a couple of scandals after the band broke up. As it happens, Nolan knows Bee instantly – he’s a “Honey Pot” level subscriber to her ClosedDoors channel and a devoted fan. So yeah no I couldn’t deal with the whole “this woman is a s*xual object only” anymore and I 0/10 recommend this.
