Baby it’s cold outside…but things are about to heat up.
I missed the last bus to my sister’s for Christmas, and now I'm stranded in a bus station—in the middle of a blizzard—with a giant package covered in naughty wrapping paper.
Then he shows up: Kalen Welles, the football star from my high school fantasies—and offers me a ride.
Just when the car is getting cozy, the roads get shut down due to snow.
Luckily there’s a nearby cabin where we can hole up for the night.
A warm fireplace, cozy blankets, pent-up longing we both spent years ignoring… maybe I’ll be able to unwrap Kalen's big package before Christmas morning.
But when the snow clears and the ice melts, will the former football star and the shy nerd finally get a happy ending?
Holly broke up with her boyfriend a week before she’s supposed to go to her sister’s house for Christmas. She thinks he’s being nice when he offers to drop her off at the bus station but then gets her there late and leaves her with a big Christmas package. The bus driver won’t let her on and won’t stow it because there’s only 1 bag allowed. She can’t leave it cuz the jerkwad told her that her grandmother’s necklace was inside. She’s sitting there contemplating her options when a gorgeous man notices her.
Kalen’s on his way to Ottawa too and strangely enough she knows him from high school. She was heavy in high school but had always had a crush on him. They head off to Ottawa but the snow storm gets worse and the road gets closed. Luckily her sister’s cabin isn’t far and they head there to spend the night. One thing leads to another and soon they’re in bed together and Kalen has really big package for her. She’s intimidated but ready to roll.
Holly has some self-esteem issues so when Kalen says he’s always liked her but never asked her out she doubts him. He wants to keep seeing her but there might be other obstacles in their way that keeps them apart.
This was a cute story that was pretty sexy. I liked Kalen – he seemed like a good guy for the most part. Holly was so very insecure it almost ruined the relationship a couple of times but she came through in the end.
The whole thing with the big Christmas package was funny. Holly’s ex was a total ass and when she found out the contents of the box it was funny – not for her but for the reader. Now, Kalen’s big package? I didn’t care for that as much. I mean, he’s got a 12-inch penis that’s got a head like a billiard ball. I know it’s supposed to be the whole play on words but it just got a little…old. Maybe it was me but I didn’t find it erotic – just kind of annoying.
Anyway, in the end I found this to be a cute erotic Christmas novella.
