A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
He's not who she expected, but he's exactly the man she needs…
When Chelsea Wayne drags Santa into a supply closet for a little office party nookie, she assumes the man in the suit is her on-again/off-again coworker boyfriend. Instead, it's Rafe St. Sebastian, a man known for his hard-driving ways in business as well as the bedroom--and, kill her now, the brand spanking new owner of Las Ventanas--who grants her naughtiest Christmas wishes.
So much for her reputation, not to mention her career.
Rafe needs to close three acquisitions to prove to his father he's ready to take the helm of St. Sebastian Enterprises. A hot interlude in a supply closet after deal number two seems like the perfect illicit Christmas bonus. Unfortunately, when that "bonus" becomes the key to the final deal, he finds himself back in bed--so to speak--with Chelsea, and after their steamy tryst, he's not interested in keeping things professional…
This book was thoroughly enjoyable. The characters and the writing were great.
Chelsea and Raffe were a great balance of each other. The way they meet and all their encounters after are both funny and steamy.
I liked that Chelsea developed herself into a stronger person, not letting people walk over her the way she admits she had done in the past. That the choices she makes when everything she knew was crashed around her were for herself and not to please anyone else.
Raffe was an interesting character and sometimes a little one-dimensional. But at the same time he wasn't exactly the typical playboy character. He Kept having to justify his actions and decisions to himself for all the excuses he made to be near Chelsea, it was amusing at times.
This book has everything a good contemporary romance should have, humor, steam, great dialog, more to the story than the romance, and good character development. I recommend this book to anyone who likes the genre.
