He's my holiday secret... and if anyone finds out, I'm screwed.

I did everything I could to get away from my family, but somehow, I've let my sister drag me home for the holidays. Now that I'm back, everyone expects to finally meet my fiance.

The only problem is I don't have one... he dumped me, and they have no clue.

I can't let them find out I'm single. Luckily, after a

Ever dread the holiday gatherings at your family's house because you know it's going to be hell? Parents think you're in a relationship because you haven't talked in forever and now they expect to meet Mr. Wonderful, and you have the brain child idea to bring a stranger as your beau? Then look no further because you have found the perfect new book!!! This book takes you through a fun, comical view of what could be. Great story line. Characters are awesome. I could totally did a man like Vance!!! ...more

Ok so heck yes this was a hilarious but wowza read. Not hilarious in the haha funny way but in the dear gosh yes … everyone is on high octane no holds barred pain in the butt mode instead of being happy and welcoming the holiday spirit inside with joy.

Abby needs a stand in for her long gone finance Chris. Clubbing with her sister for her soon to be last night of freedom before she marries the “creeper dude she is engaged to” her sister suggest finding replace

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars


Wow. Just wow.

I am beyond....words. (Write that down people.  This doesn't happen to me often).  Jackson Kane and Roxy Sinclaire have proven to be quite the devilish duo.

This book was hilarious, unpredictable and filled with plenty of steamy moments, throw in a very dysfuctional family and well you have the perfect holiday novella.

I loved the differnt POVs between the hero and heroine and OMG the sister, Jan needs her own book.

Trust me you will not be disappoin

I was able to get my hands on and ARC Copy of this book and can say I am glad I did. I loved this book. Sweet Girl meets Bad Boy Bouncer what could go wrong. Here you have a girl that is going through some personal issues all while trying to be happy for her sister who is getting married and trying to please her family all at the same time. Let me just say if you thought your family was crazy over the holidays then you'll love this family. Jackson and Roxy did an amazing job with this book.

So you have your typical bad boy meets good girl by basically saving her life romance written by two authors. This is my second read by Jackson Kane, and I was hoping that maybe having a second author's input would have upped his game, but for me, sadly the answer is no. I've never read anything from the second author, so that might have been my first mistake taking this book on. If you've ever read any of my other reviews, than you know I'm all about attention to detail and continuity. There ar ...more

I loved this read from Jackson Kane and Roxy Sinclaire! Home for the holidays and her sister's wedding, Abby couldn't be any less excited. Family drama, a fiancé who is no longer and a sister's fiancé that she can't stand. Out at the bachelorette party she sees a man who is anything but her type in the mountain of man the bouncer. Vance is a one and done kinda guy, but after an explosive hook-up with Abby he wants more. When Abby asks him to be her fake fiancé, she'll pay him, he agrees grudging ...more

This was a unexpected treat I come across from this author who teamed up with another, whom I also have devoured his other novels. With my experience in reading I just knew this would be a great holiday read because of content and author. By now you think girls would know not to mess with love like this girl Abby does in this one in the pretend game but oh desperate wins. These authors takes this and runs with it giving us a quick one that will warm us so much you can take your socks off. Sprink ...more

Awesome contemporary holiday bad boy romance. This book was so entertaining and enjoyable. It's great to read a romance that has intrigue, surprises, makes me laugh and smile while reading. Abby can't seem to find the right guy. Her family have a lot of issues as well so she tries to avoid them. She goes home for the Holidays and while at her sisters bachelorette party she neets Vance. Vance is a bouncer at the local bar. His size, tatoos and persona deters most people but he steps in to help Ab ...more

Vance and Abby

Oh the holidays! Sometimes it brings families together and sometimes it brings out the worst in families.
Abby and Vance hit it off... hard. What was suppose to be a one-night thing has turned into a "please-pretend-to-be-my-fake-fiancee-in-front-of-my-crazy-family." Abby's family is certifiable, especially her judgmental picture-loving mother.
Thankfully Abby sees past the tattoos, the muscles, the bad boy look, and realizes that Vance may just be what she needs to help her get thr

Abby has to travel home at Christmas for her sister Jen's wedding, for an average person that would be ok, but not for Abby. Abby's fiancé Chris broke it off a month ago, her sisters fiancé has tried hitting on her, and her mum is so controlling they always fight. While out on her Jens hens night, Abby is rescued by Vance, and one thing leads to to another, and the next thing Vance is Chris, and stuck in the Christmas from hell.

I really enjoyed this story, I liked how the characters all fit toge
On the night of her sister's bachelorette party, Vance steps in to rescue Abby, from some skeevy men, but the party leaves without her and she has no way to get home. She hooks up with Vance who shows up the next day with the wallet she left behind, but she needs a fake fiance because she lied to her family.

I actually wanted to read more about Vance who was intriguing and why Abby was ever with a gay stamp collector.

Great hilarious yet hot read for the Holidays! Vance and Abby should have been a one-night stand, but Vance ends up being her stand-in fake fiance. It's crazy fun, yet sweet and hot. Abby's crazy family and their expectations...great novella. Gotta love that mistletoe in the right place, at the right time!

This is the first story I've ever read by either Mr. Kane or Ms. Sinclair. It most definitely will not be the last. I liked the humor, especially. I like the heart. And the sexytimes scenes are off the chart hot.

Great read!

My Holiday Secret was a great novella and a must read! Not only do you get this hot story, you also get Jackson Kane's other books "Billionaire Takes All" and "Bigger and Badder". This is definitely a must one-click!

My Holiday Secret is steamy, naughty holiday fun! Abby is out at her sister Jan's bachelorette party when she meets Vance, a huge, sexy bouncer who saves her from some d-bags who are way too grabby after roofie-ing her drink. They have a hot encounter in his car, then he takes her home to her parents' house, where she's staying for the wedding and Christmas.

But the next day, he brings her wallet back and her family sees them together. Abby no longer has a fiancé now that he has come out of the c

Abby is 25 years old, she's a freelance writer living just outside Los Angeles. She grew up in Boston but moved to California five years ago to get away from her controlling, overbearing Mother. She finally agreed to come home for the holidays because her older sister, Jan is getting married the day after Christmas. Abby was engaged to Chris but right when they were abo ...more

Just previous to Abby coming home to the east coast from her life on the west coast. her fiance, Chris, broke off their engagement.
