About this ebook

It’s Christmas Eve at La Petite Mort Club and the night is about to get interesting because it’s almost time to play The Mistletoe Game.

Adrian is prowling the Club when he notices the saddest woman he’d ever seen. She looks like her world has ended. He’s just the guy to cheer her up. He’s rich, attractive and charming.

Unfortunately, Ellie finds him annoying, arrogant, and too alpha. She’s done with alpha males who can’t keep it in their pants and wouldn’t know the meaning of the word faithful if they were reading it in the dictionary.

But when Ellie’s cheating ex calls her cold, the only way to prove him wrong is to play The Mistletoe Game with Adrian.

How bad can it be?

They’re in public. It’s a game. Probably, a few kisses under the mistletoe, except this is La Petite Mort Club and nothing is as innocent as just a kiss.

This new adult, steamy, contemporary, holiday romantic comedy is laugh-out-loud funny and so hot that you’ll need a fan. Ellie wants to be free from alpha males, but Adrian isn’t the usual military dominant male. He’s funny, sexy and loyal. He just needs Ellie to see him for who he is, not how he looks.

This is a three-part series. All books follow Adrian and Ellie and their relationship from Christmas through Valentine's Day. The HEA is at the end of Cupid's Misfire. This book ends with an HFN.

Adrian sat at the bar and, looking around, he saw the saddest woman he had ever seen. She was alone, pale, and her eyes had a look that said her world had ended. Adrian had six sisters and hated to see a woman sad, so he determined he was going to cheer her up. But as he stood, she got a phone call and smiled. The smile lit up her face, so he changed his mind… and started to plan her seduction. I had been expecting a romantic comedy in the Christmas spirit. Kink clubs are not my thing. The writing seemed to flow well, but I didn't want to finish the book. There are those who will obviously like it, but I'm not one of them.

I really enjoyed this book. I really love all books about the La Mort Club and this story, although a short one, was no different. The scenes were hot in addition to the tad bit of humor that was added into the story. I really liked the characters and was glad that even though both had been stood up and slightly hurt, the ended up having a great time together. The story line had me hooked and I did not want to leave the story until I was completely done. This is a great first book in the Hot Holidays series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

It’s short and sweet and spicy. This story introduces us to Ellie and Adrian and sets the stage for the rest of the story to come. She’s having a crisis of self-confidence thanks to the jerk she’s been dating and he’s just alpha-hole enough to believe he can solve her problem. I really liked these two, but there are some of their idiosyncrasies that made me want to bang their heads together. I know it’s a hard-won attitude, but Ellie’s so negative, and she believes the worst about nearly all of Adrian’s actions. And Adrian is just the tiniest bit too cocky for my peace of mind. I’d like to see him learn some humility and for her to let go of the bitterness. I’m very interested to know what will happen next in their story.
