Feb 10, 2018 rated it really liked it
Having read and enjoyed the first three interconnected standalone novels of Leigh Lennon’s following a family in Spokane – Unfiltered, Unacquainted, and Unwanted – I was interested in reading more of the author’s work. When I found out there was a novella duology following Jake Davis, a character we were introduced to in Unfiltered and then saw a quick glimpse of at the end of Unwanted, I knew I needed to read the two tales.

What I came to expect of Leigh Lennon when reading her other work is an

“Holiday Package” takes the reader on Jake’s ten-day getaway to the Cayman Islands. Jake was first featured in Leigh Lennon’s “Unfiltered.” While trying to forget the woman he fell in love with, Jake meets Sasha, a woman who he instantly becomes sexually involved with. This novella is packed with a lot of steamy scenes and the banter between Jake and Sasha made me blush. Even though there are several hidden clues throughout the novella, I was still shocked by the ending. I need to warn you thoug ...more

A sexy fiesty quick read. it's different from the Leigh Lennon I'm used to but I enjoyed it just the same. Leigh has an easy fun way of writing. her heroines are always sassy and know how to bring a man to his knees literally

Fast-paced, mysterious, and incredibly sexy. I loved the banter and I'm always a fan of a strong female lead. I also enjoyed reading from Jake's POV. I'm glad I picked this up so close to the release of book 2 - definitely need to know what happens next!

The Holiday Package is the first book in the Jake Davis duet. I really liked the story of Jake and Sasha. They are great characters and the story is very good. Can't wait to find out how their story continues.

The Holiday Package: A Jake Davis Novella Part 1 by Leigh Lennon was a quick and dirty read that lovers of erotica will certainly appreciate. As its Christmas time I have a lot on my plate and I loved jumping into a new to-me-author and new book to past the time. Leigh Lennon is releasing two books focusing on Jake and Sasha, who meet on a ten day getaway on Little Cayman Island, and embark on what was supposed to be just a holiday fling. Only things get serious, feelings become entangled and th ...more

A very steamy 4.5 stars holiday read.

My goodness I was not prepared for the trip Jake Davis takes us on. We briefly meet Jake in Unfiltered as the sexy next door neighbour. It turns out he's holding quite the torch for Justine from that book and wants to get away from all her wedding hoopla.

Enter Sasha stage left. This girl was fierce and fiesty and not at all what I as expecting in a heroine. She is the sexual aggressor and I found myself liking her instantly.

I was given an ARC, here’s my honest review:

Leigh Lennon is a completely new author to me, I just so happened to win this ARC, along with part 2 (which I haven’t started yet).

Let me start with what I did like. The Holiday Package is told completely from the Mans POV, I actually really,really liked this part.

One of my biggest pet peeves in books is when I feel like I’m jumping into a world that is already established, and I’m left guessing the who, what, why, when and where. After the first chap

This was an interesting storyline to take several hours to read. I enjoyed the tension and bantering of the two-man characters a whole lot. The sexual tension is one you feed off of as you are reading it because it is extremely hot. They do make the most of their seven days of vacation.

Their idea of thinking they could spend not only that much time together but in some form or other in bed together and not get emotionally attached had me wondering as it did their house family host Mack and Anna

This was a short and sexy novella! The first book I have read by Leigh Lennon, I wasn’t sure what to expect but I loved it!

Jake Davis is pining after a woman he can’t have. Consumed by the feelings he had for her he looks for an escape for the upcoming holidays and decides he wants to spend them with his sister. When Hannah reveals she already has plans to go away to Maine with Sylvie, Jack doesn’t enjoy the idea of being on vacation with his boss. Then Hannah transfers a trip she won to the Cay

Ok, so I kinda fell for Jack while I was reading Unfiltered; I at least wanted to know more about him. This book is the start to that. Be warned though; it does leave you with the mother of all hangovers.
This book starts off at the point where Justine and Nick are a month away from their wedding and Jack realizes that he needs a break from watching Justine be happy from a distance. When a trip to the Cayman islands falls into his lap, he could not pack quick enough. The last thing that he expect

Jake needs to get away from his neighbor/love interest. So he calls his sister to spent he holiday with her. Too bad she has other plans, but she sends him away on a holiday trip of his own. He goes to the Cayman Islands and stays at a B&B. This is where he meets Sasha. They are the only 2 people staying there. So they decide to start up a holiday fling!
These 2 are super hot. And it really seems like they just cant get enough of each other. So much so that they dont want to just end it on the i

Ok, so I'm not entirely new to Leigh Lennon’s work. I read The Last Breath. However, I am new to this style of Leigh Lennon’s writing. She did a 180 for me on this one. I have to say I never celebrated Christmas this way. December for me is usually cold. This December is HOT, HOT, HOT. At least it is in The Holiday Package. I haven't read the previous books but I’m loving Jake. You can read this as a standalone, even though I wanted more info on this guy. Now I know I can get it by reading forme ...more

Jakes needs a break from work and his witch of a boss who he hates! His boss is off skiing with Jakes sister and he is off to the Cayman Islands for 10 days of relaxation and reading!

Sasha goes to the same little b&b every year, and it just so happens that she is there the same time as Jake. There is, of course, a strong attraction between the two of them and it isn’t long before they end up in bed together. Neither can offer more than the 10 days, Jake due to his job and Sasha due to family rea

Arc provided by author for honest review. Leigh sent me this book and I could tell you was gonna be nervous about my opinion. Leigh let me tell you I'm not surpised you pulled this off. I knew you had this in you. And so very proud of you! Now as for Jake I like him from the very start. I knew he had a thing for Justine. It just wasn't meant to be. I knew though that he would find his someone. I like Sasha, I just think she needs to let her walls down more. I think jake can make them all come do ...more

Jake needs an escape from the woman he has fallen in love with and his job. When his sister Hannah offers him a trip she won to the Cayman islands he jumps at the chance. Jake first encounters Sasha at the airport when she doesn't appreciate him stepping in rescue her.

This is about a character that we meet in Unfiltered. He is a just touched on but so fun that he gets his own story. This is a very steamy read! Love Leigh Lennon's writing style. She knows how to build a story that you feel like

I love novella's and this was the first book I have read from this author. This book had everything to me. Loss, excitement, adventure, lots of rendezvous and mystery.

Who would pass up a holiday vacation to a tropical island and it happens to be at the perfect time when Jake is trying to get over the neighbor he was in love with. Sasha didn't plan of finding someone on her yearly Christmas to little Cayman but finds herself falling for the little holiday affair she embarks on.

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

A fast paced, sexy, read that takes us on Jake's vacation and everything that goes on in it. This was a romantic suspense with a fiery heroine and passionate encounters as well as had loads of action. The Holiday Package is the first part in a two part book and MUST be read before The Sweetest Package. I have never read Leigh Lennon before but hot damn, I can't wait to follow her now!

This was the first (of many) books I’ve read by Leigh Lennon and boy was I hooked from page one. Jake decides he needs a vacation from life, work and all the stress of his life. He calls his sister to tell her his plans on seeing her for Christmas only to inform him she will be away with her best friend. She then tells him about a trip she won and has transferred it to his name. When he lands in paradise he meets Sasha the Ice Queen. Sasha is also on vacation for her stressful life. When she mee ...more

I got a copy of this book for an honest review, I did enjoy this book and have read other books by this author which I have loved. I’ve only given this one 3 stars. I can’t believe I’m going to say this as I love a hot romance but there was a bit too much sex that I found myself skim reading over the sexy bits after a while; this book did however really pick up towards the end and shows there is something more to the story & I’m intrigued to find out what it is and who the hell that awful woman ...more

This book wasn't what I expected, it was way better!!!

I certainly needed to keep reading about the friendships between the characters and why there was such a hatred between Jake and Sylvie. Sylvie seemed to have her own agenda, and didn't really care about the other characters in the book. Jake takes a much needed vacation - thanks to his sister, Hannah; where he meets Sasha - the attraction is instantaneous. They agree to have a relationship, of sorts, but only for the 10 days that they will b

So hot it burns!!!!

I was given an ARC of The Holiday Package from the author for an honest review and let me tell you, it was so much more than I thought it was going to be! It is a quick read (although it took me longer to read than it normally would because life just jumped in the way) but it packs a ton of heat and just enough question to make Jake and Sasha mysterious yet not shallow. Leigh Lennon does a great job (once again) at being engaging and keeping you wanting more!

Leigh Lennon writing is smooth and flows really well. This novella is a fast look into a his life and what he does. BTW I really can't stand Silvie!!!

Jake need a getaway from his neighbor whom he thinks he loves. Sasha also wants to get away from her life as well. When they meet Jake feels an instant attraction to Sasha, the connection is immediate. And not it was a hot read!! I loved it. Looking forward to the second part!!

I have a confession to make I usually don't like Novellas. Especially if they're under 125 pages. I used to think that a writer couldn't possibly write a story with any type is substance with such a short story. Leigh Lennon totally changed my opinon. The Holiday Package delivers a big punch in a novella. Not only is the story of Jake & Sasha hot and yummy, but I I'm chomping at the bit to read the next book! ...more

A steamy fast read

OMG, what a steamy little novella. Jake goes on the vacation his sister gifts him and meets Sasha. Things start out rocky, but they have a little over a week at the bed and breakfast and come to a mutual decision. This book will have you loving Sasha and her sassy comments. Jake is smoking hot and let’s just say he has the right holiday package for Sasha. No spoilers, but I really want to wring Sylvie’s neck, to put it nicely.

This book was a cute story about Jake going to the Cayman islands for a little get away to forget about the woman he loved. Here he meets Sasha and they begin a love affair that neither one wants to admit may be more.

I do need to warn readers that the story ends in a dreaded cliffhanger! Not normally my cup of tea.

Regardless, the story if worth reading!

Thank you for the privilege of reading this book! Well done! ❤️

I was surprised to find out that Jack was getting his own book because he wasn’t mentioned much in Unfiltered. But I’m sure glad he did! Talk about instant chemistry with these two! Jack and Sasha together was just meant to be. I enjoyed Sasha’s personality very much since it was so refreshing and let’s say that Jack is every woman’s dream.

Makes me wish I could find a man on vacation but without the drama part! Leigh Lennon is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine.

I loved this but was a little disappointed it ended in a cliffhanger. This is Jake's story we are introduced to him in Unfiltered. It took me until the end of the book to realize who he was. This is a sexy, mysterious quick read. A little different from the other series. This story was hot and I can't wait to read more of Jake and Sasha's story. Once I started reading this I couldn't put it down.
I received an ARC and volunteered to leave a review.
