I loved this book. It didn't take the trajectory I thought it would...and I thoroughly enjoyed the surprises. Plus HOT! As all of Eden's books are. An excellent read, any time of the year.

Getting Scrooged is a super-steamy Christmas novella about an over-worked corporate mogul with something to prove, who never takes time out for herself. She finally finds her match in the man who is sent to negotiate a corporate merger between one of her companies, a small publishing house, and the larger one that is his employer. Holly and Ben were decent characters, but I felt like they were a little too much alike. Both had crappy lives growing up and both have driven,

The first of the three Kinky Christmas books starts with a foursome. I believe they started with the correct amount of kinky! ;) Holly is a likable character and you feel sorry for her workaholic ways. She is still trying to make her dad happy even though he passed away several years ago. Ben (Ebenezer) is a hunky British man who you can't help but want to enjoy some fun with. After he finds Holly's bucket list he is determined to help her realize

This was a brilliant read;-).I loved it was very intense at times between the 2 characters...the sex was very steamy but with an element of loving intimacy between them;-).Also the 3 some was very intense it was a fantasy Holly wanted to live and in a way I think it freed both Ben and her from their controlling pasts so they could move forward with their relationship.I did cry when he professed his love to her it beautiful..such a sweet love story with a twist in the beginning
It was nice

So I read these a little out of order but so did not matter. Have tissues ready I was crying like a baby in parts of the book. I loved Holly's bucket list and how Ben started out to help the deal along when he found her list but then ended up falling of her. Great Christmas story that had a great blend of drama, romance and smutty goodness. Highly recommended!

Holly met Ben through a merger deal between their companies. The chemistry between them was electric. Only a few nights before Holly and her cousin Marley had made a bucket list for Holly to do before her 40th birthday on Christmas eve.

When out for dinner with Holly, her bag is knocked over by a waiter and her list falls out, only for Ben to find. He decides it would be a good idea to help Holly fulfil her dreams. The question is, will he be found out, and what would be the consequences?

Good writing. I didn't like what happened in the middle of the book, what can I say, I'm a one-guy kind of girl.

Read this from the free Amazon ebook "Hot For The Holidays" which is a collection of 13 sexy holiday novellas.

This is worth the read and the only reason I did not give 5 stars is because at some point I thought the story went on to long with not much happening and then so good point just went way to fast. But past that a very fun read with not one but three sexy British lads.

"Getting Scrooged" by Eden Bradley is the first in a trio of deliciously erotic tales that give a twist to the famous Christmas classic. Holly Knight is thrown into company with Ebenezer (Ben) Hall during a major business negotiation but quickly realizes that she is ready to change her pattern and become intimate with someone who actually knows who she is instead of an anonymous lover. Ben has definite ideas about what he wants in a lover and he is delighted when he learns that Holly has a list ...more

This novella is the first in the linked holiday trilogy and it certainly started with a bang! As the cover suggests, this isn't a simple one-on-one romance; this is a no holds barred sexy tale with a festive twist!

Ben Hall is in town to close a deal with the lovely Holly and he isn't above using sex to get what he wants. When he finds her sexy bucket list, he realizes that working through it with her would allow him to have his cake and eat it!

Holly can't believe her luck when the beautiful Ben

I knew I wanted to read these stories from the beginning! I mean, put aside that they are some of my favorite authors writing them. A nice kinky twist on a Holiday Classic is just what I needed to jump start my holiday spirit! When you add in the "oh so mysterious" Mr. Frost, who seems to be everywhere and know all, the stage is set!

A drunken bucket list! Only Eden Bradley could think of a twist like that. This story was hot from the

Holly Knight is a workaholic; she doesn't have a personal life and she certainly doesn't have time for Christmas. She's got a business deal to finalise with 'closer' Ebenezer Hall who is determined to use his charm to get the best result for his employer. The chemistry between them is sizzling, and Ben goes all out to win Holly around by making her dreams come true. But the way he comes to know about her fantasies is a bit underhand - when Holly finds out will he lose her forever?

This was a fast and hot story of two hedonists that find themselves shocked to the core that their hearts have been claimed by the very person whom they first saw as a game and nothing more. The chemistry between Ben and Holly is playful and teasing at first, but later turns into an inferno of desire. Ben is sweet and charming, blond with a sexy little British accent. Hes not the cookie-cutter character that you might imagine him to be, which is what really made the story for me. As you can see ...more

The Smutkeeteer's have created a trilogy that tweaks the classic "A Christmas Carol". Great stories that are fun, erotic and tug at the heartstrings. Keep tissues and a cold drink nearby while reading.

In this story by Eden Bradley, "Getting Scrooged", Marley Knight has spent her life working, her life is her office and the occasional one night stand. She has a huge merger to complete, stressed and in need of a break. Marley and her cousin go out to a bar and after making merry, Marley creates

Hollys got no time for ties or feelings for other people, she prefers her encounters in the hotel bar, so she can spend the rest of her time alone.
During an alcohol intervention from her cousin she relents and writes down a bucket list, one that is topped by her ultimate wish - a threesome with gorgeous men.
She soon forgets the list, but when her latest opponent in negotiations stumbles upon it, he gets some ideas of his own.

I had a few issues with Ben because one thing is enjoy the moment and have fun, but he stole a private list from Holly and pushed an orgy on her, without talking about the subject before.

I enjoyed the sex and the way Holly managed to change her life and try to reconnect with her family but I agree with her that Ben needed to beg forgiveness.

Both of them had problems connected with Christmas and their family, but Ben he messed a business because he wanted to have fun and forget about real life.
Prepare for a totally kinky Christmas! Loved Holly's bucket list, I may have to steal a few of her ideas. Ben has such nice friends. Everyone should have nice friends like Ben. All three stories in the series intertwine and work well together.

Enjoyed the story. It was a quick read so I was able to read the other 2 books in the Kinky Christmas set.

I was a little unsure if the books needed to be in a certain order. I'm still not quite sure but I think its a no.
there is some similarities to the classic with the names within the book but it is different...kinky and good holiday story. There was a few errors (two to be exact) that he was she and her should of been him but I was able to hurled over them.

Review will be on my blog on Dec 21 2015
