"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

I loved this tale of love second time around. All the characters were interesting, had a backstory and had a future. There wasn't too much angst, there were lots of family moments and some very passionate encounters. I loved the Harley being restored as an allegory to his life, and that he got it! I smiled at the references to academia, as that is the world I inhabit - fun and liberating, thank you!

It's a sweet lost love story. Issac is a workaholic. He is forced to take a two week vacation by his friend and boss. When he returns home to see family for Hanukkah, he is in no way prepared to find Giada standing in his sister's kitchen. She is the one that got away. His teenage fantasy that has only gotten better looking with time.

Giada hasn't seen Issac in fifteen years. Her feelings she had all those years ago jump

***This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.***

Revving Up the Holidays was a sweet story about a love that was almost missed.

Though there was a lot of steam in this book, I thought there was a wholesomeness about Giada and Isaac’s story. I love that they’d been secretly carrying torches for each other for years. And bonus? ‘Best friend’s hot older brother’ is one of my favorite tropes!

He transformed in an instant with a smile that had her blushing right down to her p

Revving Up the Holidays is the first book I have had the chance to read by A.S. Fenichel. I found it to be a hot steamy story with some really nice family scenes.

I was in a mood for a quick holiday read and have always wanted to check out new-to-me author A.S. Fenichel so Revving Up the Holidays was perfect. What’s better than killing two birds with one stone, right?

I loved the holiday feel of this book; we get Hanukkah and Christmas all in one story. The characters were also warm and delightful to read. Isaac and Giada both had their own emotional baggage to carry, but I was happy to see them open up to one another instead of pushing each o

Revving up the Holidays was a wonderful romance entwined with family traditions; it includes glimpses of both Hanukkah and Christmas. It was entertaining to watch this couple get together. The author did an amazing job of creating solid characters with just the right amount of desire for one another. Isaac is sexy, rides a motorcycle and he has a way with words,
“I know it’s silly, but I have terrible guilt over my boyhood fantasies involving you.”
Yum . I was a little annoyed with Giada in the
