Fun & Hot Christmas Read!

What an awesome fun and hot Christmas read that kept me glued to the pages. The characters chemistry was addicting as it blazed off the page in this fast pace novella. I literally didn’t want the story to end. Gigi and Boone were the perfect match for each other, their erotic love scenes were beyond sizzling and will have you feeling froggie and ready to pounce on and grease the next available north pole – LMAO! No actually it made me want to go to Vegas and ride a bull

Birthday girl, Gigi wins big when the pull of a slot machine arm earns her a cash prize and two nights in a suite with a handsome cowboy. The story was great and the characters were fun, sexy, and made me smile. I can’t wait for the next one. I love Randi Alexander books!

I hate giving bad reviews. Hate it. But, it’s my job to say it how I see it. That way I help you all make good buying decisions.

I really hate writing a bad review when I appear to be the only person in the known universe to do so. That would be the case here.

I immediately liked the two main characters in the story, Gigi and Boone: They are obviously both needing a little TL

Review written by Amy.

This is a short story about Boone Hancock, sexy bull rider and Gieselle (Gigi) Colberg-Staub, master’s student who meet in the casino after a rodeo at Christmas. Karma ensues and they find themselves entangled in a sweet and sexy romance. Add in some luck and a little heartache and you have one hell of a good book. We can’t forget Boone’s brother Jayden and his friend Dallas or Gigi’s best friend Kira who left you wanting to read more about them and you get to because this

"Cowboy Jackpot: Christmas" by Randi Alexander is the first short novella in the `Cowboy Jackpot' series and is set in Las Vegas just as Gieselle Colberg-Staub and Boone Hancock have a very fortuitous meeting at a slot machine. The two discover that celebrating Gieselle's birthday together will lead them to a jackpot that neither expected, if they are only brave enough to trust each other.

This quickie erotic tale ratchets up the heat with a tale that features

Hubby and I gives this story 4 stars, it had a unique and interesting plot. The sex scenes were extremely well written and a refreshing change from the norm. The bath scene was very erotic (especially appealing to hubby) In the 150+ erotic books I have read I have never read another scene like it!

The only reason I didn't rate it higher is I am not a fan of insta love. I am sure it happens but after one night....uuummmm nope wasn't buying it, lol.

I liked this story and the characters. But I felt like it should have taken place over 3 months of time, not 2 days.

I will be reading more books by this author. I liked her writing style.

Awesome story!
Gieselle and her best friend Kira are in Vegas for the holidays and they meet three handsome cowboys on Christmas Eve in a casino. Boone, his best friend Dallas, and his younger brother Jayden are in the town for a rodeo competition, which Boone won first place in. When Boone offers Gigi one last dollar needed for a slot machine and pulls the lever for her, they win a $200,000 jackpot! Though Boone insists Gigi won fair and square, the casino says Boone legally won. While I don’t u

4.0 on the Masq Scale

Erotica novels are taking the world by storm. Who wouldn’t like a quick, steamy novel every now and then to take your mind of the pressing matters of life? Randi Alexander delivered a good, quick short story that was just long enough to satisfy you, without having the need of more serious undertones.

Now I personally am not a huge fan of the instant love deal, but this book was actually sort of charming. The main characters were entertaining, an

I've had this on my Kindle for months and it just appeared to get lost among the rest of my TBR books. Glad I finally got to it! No dark subjects to deal with here, just a hot and sexy lighthearted read that will leave you feeling content, pleased, and of course moist! LOL!

Randi Alexander delivers another hot erotic love story in her latest release COWBOY JACKPOT: CHRISTMAS.

Among the flashing lights and decadence that is Las Vegas, cowboy Boone Hancock has to decide exactly how lucky he really is when he meets New Yorker, Gieselle Colberg-Staub. These two characters are worlds apart, but when it comes to values and good hearts, they couldn’t be better matched. The question is, will they realize that before both must leave their Christmas holiday in Sin City for t

This was such a fun, quick read with lots of fun banter, tons of steam and heat, and some angst thrown in for good measure. Don’t let the novella length fool you, there is a full length story in the pages that not only makes for a great read, but also introduces a great cast of characters that are sure to make for more great stories in this series.

Gigi and Boone were great – from the sexual tension that always seemed to be an undertone to all their conversations, to the steam between them in the

I was given the book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first in a series and having read all 3 (so far) I do believe you enjoy the books best read in order. However each stands strong alone.

It sounds like the beginning of a bad joke: 3 cowboys walk into a bar... or in this case a casino.

They have a history of picking up girls after rodeo events and are not looking for any sort of commitment or long term relationship. In fact they have a deal where they will each keep an eye on the oth

I really enjoyed this book, there was only one area where I struggled with this story but I'm not one to easily forgive.

Gieselle has followed the rodeo circuit for quite some time, so mistaking her as a buckle bunny is fairly easy I suppose...along with her fun loving friend, Kira. But to mistake her as such can come with some consequences Boone wishes he could take back. Boone's just out looking for a good time with his buddy and little brother. However when he gets a come-hither look from Gies

Another great read from Randi Alexander!! This is the 1st book in the COWBOY JACKPOT series. I couldn't put this book down til the end. Boone and Gigi were meant for each other. The attraction was hot and heavy. I felt so bad for Gigi at one point in this story as she had her heart broke and mad at Boone for breaking it. Then shortly after I felt sorry for Boone as he realized his mistake and cheered him on while he tried to make things right. I love stories that take me on an emotional ride al ...more

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

I gave this book stars and her is why:

The main characters are amazing and likable but its the chemistry they have from the first introduction that kept me hooked. I started reading this book and finished it in less then an hour because I could not bare to put it down for a moment. I cannot wait for the second book in January.

Giselle (Gigi) and Boone meet in front of a slot machine in Vegas on Christmas eve after he wins at the Rodeo. Boone, Dallas, and Jayden think she and her friend Keira are buckle bunnies and are looking for a one night hook-up. Boone easily won her heart with all of his politeness, respect, and dirty taking.....but can he keep it once he goes a little to far?
This was a really cute quick read. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series, especially after the little cliffhanger w

Boone has just won at a rodeo and he's ready to have some fun. Gigi is in Vegas for her Birthday and the Christmas Holiday when Cowboy Boone shows interest in her and a lucky kiss helps her win big it's the start of something amazing. Or is it?

Gigi was a strong lead and Boone was fun as long as he let his feelings take hold. This one was a fun quick read and am excited to read more in the series.

A business-minded girl partying in Vegas and a cowboy who's on the rodeo circuit meet up in a whirlwind romance, spurred on by an unexpected jackpot win. Can there be more between them than just these few heady days at Christmastime?
I enjoyed this romantic fantasy and the characters were well written. There are some adult scenes and emotional tension.

While the first of this story was fun, it soon became apparent that this was more about having sex than telling a story.This was too erotic for me and I was glad it wasn't very long. Another author for my no more list. This is the first book in a Naughty Little Christmas box set. Only for those who love erotic and not for under 18.
