Hard as steel…and hotter still!

Never mess with a woman who carries a blowtorch in her backpack. Welder and artist Veronica "Flash" Redding's playful sense of evil sometimes gets the better of her. Like when her insanely handsome, wealthy, suited-up boss gave her the most sensuously wicked night of her life…then dumped her. Yep, revenge is a dish best served hot.

One Hot December is book three in the Men at Work series by Tiffany Reisz. First, let me fan girl just a little bit. I started this series because I was looking for a Halloween romance and came upon the first book, Her Halloween Treat. I was instantly smitten and went on to book two for Thanksgiving, Her Naughty Holiday. And now, I am gong to tell you about the third book which happens at Christmas time. These three books are not only sexy as heck but they are sweet and fun and the characters ar ...more

This one is still my favorite of Tiffany Reisz's Men at Work series. I had to read it once more before taking down my Christmas tree and officially exiting the holidays. This romance definitely doesn't disappoint (...well except for the corny cover art). Loved it!

Tiffany Reisz does it again! This final book in the series didn't have quite as much going for it plot-wise as the previous two installments did, but it VERY much made up for that with all the dirty talk. Have MERCY. This was such a fun series!

For better or worse, this is the best vanilla romance from Tiffany Reisz. I don't think I will read this type of Harlequin ever again. Ugh my heart couldn't take it. Every part of my body turns into prune. But, this was so much better than the previous.

Veronica "Flash" Redding couldn't forget her most memorable one-night-stand with her handsome boss, Ian Asher. Unfortunately, he was kinda dumped her and she really need to move on. When Flash decided to quit working for his

And that's a wrap for the holidays with Tiffany Reisz romances! One Hot December, the third and last book in the Men at Work Series, takes a slightly different tone than the prior books as the "man at work" is really a woman (welder) and her love interest is a CEO, son of a rich State Senator. Nonetheless--though the roles are reversed--we are still treated to a special, erotic holiday romance. In this case a heartwarming Christmas/Hanukkah romance. Ms. Reisz being the relig

Veronica "Flash" has it bad for her boss, well former boss, in two-weeks. After one heated night, Ian Asher gave her the brush off and she hasn't gotten over the sting just yet. When Flash tells Ian that she's giving her notice, he knows he can't just let her walk away. It wasn't a lack of desire that drove him to turn her down, but now that she isn't his employee anylonger, he isn't going to just let her walk out of his life.

Another steamy, witty romance from Reisz. One Hot December gives you a

I didn't connect with this book as much as the last two, but it's still Tiffany Reisz goodness – hot, funny, and utterly charming. Review to come!

Thanks to the publisher for generously providing me an ARC to review.
Welp! It wasn't Shakespeare but it was entertaining, smutty, funny, smutty, lighthearted and did I mention smutty? I mean, look at that cover! Total smutty cheese fest... yup, just what the doctor ordered after a more serious read!
Cute book. Quick read. Oregon setting.
3rd person POV. This is book 3 in the series, so Ian and "Flash" already know each other.
Ian's her boss. The son of the Construction Co owner.
Snarky humor. A lot of sexy scenes. Low angst. Opposites attract. Flash/Veronica is a goth/hipster, welder/mixed metal sculptress.
Ian is the boss & he's crazy about Flash.
Mrs Scheinberg is an awesome friend.

The last addition to the Men At Work Series was hilariously awesome! Veronica AKA Flash and Ian AKA The Boss were perfect together. When I started reading the book, I first saw a very bitter and vindictive Flash, and a grumpy and kind of an asshole Ian, but later, when their truer personalities were showing as the story was progressing, I found funny and easy going characters that I ended up loving so muc

Now the only reason a person should give this a lower rating is because this series is to damn short. I love Tiffany's writing. I loved how Flash like it to when Ian bosses her around when their intimate. Once you pick up this book you won't be able to put it down. Now that I finished it I'm sad I'm having Tiffany withdrawal she always does this to me.

One Hot December is the third book in the Men At Work trilogy by Tiffany Reisz, a lighthearted, funny and super sexy series set in the in the idyllic forested locale surrounding Mount Hood, Oregon. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each book in the standalone series that has loosely connected characters but can be read in any order. This story is a second chance romance with a Christmas and Hanukkah theme and definitely belongs on your holiday bookshelf.

One Hot December is the crown jewel of the Men at Work series - it's beautiful, tender, hot, sweet, funny, flirt and my feels are all oh so invested!

Review - (un)Conventional Bookviews

I think what surprised me the most with One Hot December was the complete and utter sense of tenderness I felt while reading about Ian and Flash! Reisz always manages to draw me in, but somehow, I got even more with this story - which is another surprise as it was only 224 pages long
My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

One Hot December is wildly sexy, insanely funny, and quite simply a fantastic read. Every book in Tiffany Reisz’s Men at Work series has been incredibly addictive and Flash and Ian’s love story is no exception. It’s a wonderful romance that is so much fun I cannot help but smile when I think about it.

Flash is an awesome heroine. She’s got a quit wit (and sometimes a quick trigger), a spine of steel, and she’s refreshingly straightforward. She’s not

I have loved, loved, loved this three-book (all stand alone) holiday contemporary series by Tiffany Reisz. One Hot December features a heroine who is a welder, with short spiky hair and goes by the name Flash (aka Flashdance from the movie), although she also answers to the name Veronica. Flash has worked for a few years for Ian's company - the only female employee and an amazing welder. She has fought tooth and nail to earn their respect, and finally (kind of) has it. Flash has a problem though ...more

I had to skim. These two behaved like bloody teenagers. Flash and Ian have a one night stand. Flash likes Ian but Ian is her boss and tells her that it shouldn't have happened and can't happen again. Flash then welds nuts to the hood of his car as punishment for him breaking up with her.

I should have stopped there but I was curious. It did not improve. The sexy talk was not sexy. The relationship development was odd and Flash was an actual teenage girl in a gown up body.

I love a bit of Mills &
My favourite of the trio so far.

One Hot December is a boss/employee erotic-romance with an opposites attract theme, wit, banter and sweetness.

I loved the goofy, sweet but dominant hero, heart of gold type. The heroine was quirky and a little weird, totally my type.

A short, hot, enjoyable read.

What a fun series this has been! All three books have been brilliant reads and perfect for this time of year. With the weather turning colder, I just want to curl up, keep warm and read a good book and each one of Tiffany Reisz's "Men at Work" books have delivered the much needed feel good factor. Tiffany had injected a huge dose of humour and witty dialogue into this story that made it an absolute delight to read. The characters were fantastic, so easy to love and I had a great big smile on my ...more
Much better than book one!

ONE HOT DECEMBER features a strong sassy heroine, what I thought was to be a beta-hero but turned out to not really be the case (slightly disappointing but oh well) though thankfully he wasn't an alphatard either, a sweet old Jewish lady and the requisite Flashdance references due to the lady welder theme. Sometimes I wasn't totally sold on one thing or another but honestly this was fun so whatever, I've griped enough about books this week.

If he were a gladiator and she the empress of Rome, she would have looked down on his beaten, bloodied and bruised body in the ring and given him a thumbs-down.

We had a Reisz Halloween and a Reisz Thanksgiving, so now it's time for Christmas. I love that there's a nod to Hanukkah here, too. Funny, short, sexy. There's not much conflict here, but the lolz are strong with this one.
A very fun read, and with more depth that I was expecting.

Six months ago, Veronica "Flash" Redding had a one night stand with her boss, Ian Asher. He kept it a one-time only thing, because they could both lose their jobs. But now she's quit her job, and they're free to have all the sex they like.

This was an easy read, with likable characters, but lacking any real romantic tension. Flash and Ian go from "like" to "love" very quickly. There are no real obstacles in their way, only the Big Misunderstanding. The dialogue felt a little forced at time, thoug

I wanted to like this book, the gender bend of her being the welder...well, it just didn't work for me. I was intrigued, but unfortunately my interest in the book didn't go from the blurb to the pages of the book.

After sharing one night of the best sex of their lives, Ian dumped Veronica "Flash" Redding, an act that left her seething mad. So mad she welded a pair of truck nuts to his truck bumper and has made it her mission to terrify him whenever their paths cross at work.
Now welder and metal artist Flash is quitting, meaning Ian is no longer her boss. And now that Ian is no longer in power to hire or fire her, he can share why he had to end their barely started relationship all those months ago.
