Tasting Her Christmas Cookies

Winter is coming—and unfortunately it's bringing Christmas with it.

I loathe the holiday. I hate holiday parties, fragrant decorations, and hokey movies. If I had my way it would be winter all year round and never Christmas.

Nothing burns like the cold—except a hot oven.

That's right; against my better judgement I agreed to let The Great Christmas Bake-Off film in my

I just loved this book. This is a delightful holiday rom-com that will make you smile, laugh and melt your heart. I really enjoyed Owen and Holly's story. These opposites generate lots of sparks and clever banter as they clash together. The storyline is fun, cute, and filled with holiday charm. Drama, humor and plenty of emotions and steam will keep you entertained and immersed in this wonderful read. I am posting a independent, impartial review.

To thoroughly enjoy a work of fiction, especially something like romantic comedy, you have to be willing to go along with the story, no matter how outlandish or how unlikely it would be in real life. I just couldn’t do that with this book.
A lot of my issues stem with the contests in which Holly and Owen find themselves. I thought the TechBiz competition was a bit inane. Yes, I understand corporate culture is important, but really? And why is a Christmas party valued more highly over the

A light-hearted witty novel. This is a fun, witty, entertaining story that I didn't want to put down. It is a setting that would be close to many people's heart, as 'Bake-off' TV series is popular in many countries. The characters of Holly and Owen are well developed, described and provide us with pages after pages of character-appropriate, witty, action-packed dialogue. Not to mention that their connection is hot, hot and steamy hot. So is their language for that matter. It was a great idea to ...more

Can she get him to taste her Christmas cookies

Well you can only root for Holly to win the annual Great Christmas Bake-Off contest in this sweet and lovely romance book. The unfortunate thing is that Owen is a judge and this man basically hates Christmas. But maybe the Christmas elves are at work as they sprinkle more than a little fairy dust on this story and these two Christmas opposites might find some common ground in the middle where more things than cookies get whipped up.

Who knew there were that many Christmas-themed innuendos that could be made? I didn’t. But I sure as heck laughed my butt off over them. Owen and Holly’s story shares several elements with that of his brother Jack and Chloe. Some of that is because both of them are set against a backdrop of The Great Christmas Bake-Off and they share a lot of the same cast of crazy family members, friends, and frenemies. All similarities in the plot lines aside, the book made me laugh so hard I had trouble ...more

She loves Christmas and He hates it, what can go wrong, he is the judge of the Christmas Bake-off. In this well written humorous story many things can go wrong and with things out to try and keep her from winning, how can she win. The story focuses on Families that are in some of the Author's other books, but mainly on a Frost, everyone one in this book is well-written and has character. I love their story and how they dance/play around each other. They will either have a wonderful HEA with ...more

However, there is one judge that she can not get out of her head, Owen. He is does not appear to find any Christmas cheer in the holidays. Holly figures she could change that by making this bake off fun and very festive. Taking on the challenge of convincing Owen the goodness that Christmas brings is ...more

Ok. If you’re going to write a romantic comedy (rom-com) perhaps you should warn your reader that the sex is more like soft porn. I mean, turn on the A/C and grab a glass of ice water…

Alina Jacobs Christmas rom-com starts out full of secual innuendo, but the relationship between Holly and Owen could cause the baker’s cookies to catch fire. Throw in a Christmas dessert bake-off, an evil step-sister, a Husky named Rudolph, and you’ve got a rom-com worth reading on a snowy afternoon. This

This book could easily be a Hallmark or Christmas 24 film (if they have plenty of steam in them)! It had it all, the picturesque setting, the lovely and sexy Christmas story, the passion, drama and romance that Alina Jacobs is amazing at doing in all her books. It also made me wish I could have be in this family and characters stories. All the main characters and secondary are just fantastic and you can’t help but fall in love with them all and want to move into the tower in this book and the ...more

4.5 stars ***** Another great comedy romance and the crazy families are back for a Christmas bake off. Holly and Owen meet by accident, but the rest of the meetings are not. This story focuses on a Frost brother but have no fear, the Svennsons and Holbrooks are here. These people are fun and entertaining if not a lot insane! It’s a warm story that wraps around you and transports you to the comedy zone for a couple of hours of fun.

Holly loves everything Christmas, Owen, not so much. Holly has a plan to win the great Christmas bake off to pay off her debts. Owen needs to improve his standing with his employees. Owen is judging the bake off and he and Holly just seem to be meant to run into each other. Of course there are scheming women and crazy family members that try to get in the way. If you have read any of the other Alina Jacobs books then you’ll love this one just as much. You don’t have to read the others to ...more

I love this book! If you like romantic comedy then you will love it too. There is this grinchy hot billionaire and a curvy hot baker. Both come with family baggage. Add in a Christmas Bake-Off, a stalker or two and an adorable husky puppy to complete the package. There are so many laugh out loud moments. And plenty of hot steamy moments. And enough Christmas desserts to have you salivating. I did read this as an ARC for my honest review. After I had already pre-ordered, lol. But please do read ...more

Delightful holiday rom-com where opposites come together and generate steam. Holly loves the holidays and baking. She’s determined to win so she can open her own bakery. Owen Frost dislikes the holidays and has no problem letting everyone know it. Holly is struggling financially and Owens a billionaire. Sparks fly between these opposites but the story makes you smile and laugh. I received a complementary copy of this book via Booksprout and chose to write a review. I look forward to reading ...more

Full of funny moments featuring a billionaire CEO, Owen, judging a Christmas bake off show. Holly is taking part and he finds her more attractive than her baked goods despite him hating Christmas and her loving it. Throw in a cute puppy, some other quirky characters plus a reconnection with some of the Svensson brothers and this makes for a really entertaining read. Read an ARC for an honest review.

Owen and Holly are fun and sexy!!
Frost Brothers #2. This is my first Frost Brothers story so now I definitely have to go back and read the other. Another Alina Jacob's story that is fun, sexy, full of quirky riotous characters. Just the right amount of crazy for the funny and just the right amount of sexy for the sensual. Owen and Holly are another 'it' couple that I hope to see bits of in future stories. Keep these coming! I'm hooked.

Great humor story to read. You will laugh and show so much emotions. Holly loves Christmas is goes all out. Owen a billionaire hates Christmas. Holly won';t let him drag her down. Can she prove Christmas to him? Can Owen get distracted? Will she get sabotage during bake-off? Enjoy the holiday time in this full length story.

This is Holly and Owen's story and it's just as funny as the others by Alina Jacobs. The shenanigans and adventures these get into will have you laughing. Some of the events and scenes are a little confusing and some of the characters need more explanations. But you don't have to have read the other stories to get the story line here. It's fun and sexy!

Such a fun, cute and steamy Christmas read. I loved these characters - Jacobs does a great job bringing Holly and Owen to life and the secondary characters bring so much life and fun drama to the table too! Innuendos for days - and I love, love, loved them! The perfect balance of humor and steam! A wonderful holiday read for anyone who loves romance novels!

I absolutely LOVED Owen and Holly. In typical Alina fashion, she pits a hero and heroine on opposite sides of a holiday. Owen despises all things Christmas and doesn't understand why his investors want him to play nice. Can't he run his business in peace? Holly is competing in the bake-off and can't figure out the surely judge who clearly doesn't like Christmas or desserts. Who in their right mind doesn't like either??? Watching these two dance around each other was entertaining. Owen can't ...more
