3 stars!

Quick, short holiday erotic read.

What can I say... when your in a doctors waiting room, what better thing to do than pull out your kindle and read a little naughty romance.

**If they only knew what I was reading. Mahahahah!!
Had a lot of potential but way too short.
I have to say that this was one hot and funny read ! The characters were down right hilarious and the whole entire time we were reading about this dysfunctional family the only thing that came to mind is that this is just like that movie with Chevy Chase in The Christmas Vacation movie and we just laughed harder.

The Holiday started of great with a hot sexy guy and a really hot bang but,from then on it was just a total disaster but, meeting your mystery man yet again just may have turned out to b

I adored both Abby and Vance in this non stop page turning romcom. Front the very beginning I was hooked on Abby and her personality, this woman speaks her mind and is someone I’d love to know in life. Vance, this man gives off that rough and tough vibe but when you start to peel back his layers you will fall for him completely. These two head on over to a family gathering that will have you continuously laughing and excited to see what happens next. A great standalone with a guaranteed HEA.

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.

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

Quick and fun holiday read. It was just supposed to be a one night stand but Abby needs Vance to pretend to be her fiancé to appease her certifiable family. Her real fiancé broke it off about a month ago and her sister’s soon to be husband keeps hitting on her. Vance steps in to shield her from the creepy man and when her sister’s bachelorette party leave her behind he gives her a lift. One thing leads to another and he is pretending to be her fake fiancé.

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.

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

My Holiday Secret is a read that I really enjoyed! First of all, the hilariously placed humor had me laughing until my sides hurt, while I had trouble catching my breath. This family, OMG, was the funniest family in a book that I've read! And I'm not saying that they are all just peachy, I'm saying the family dynamics, and how it all ended up, well just don't try to drink anything while reading. Simmering chemistry was off the charts, and boiled quickly into some seriously SIZZLIN' sexy scene go ...more

Spicy Christmas story that's a quick read. It's insta between the maid of honor and the burly bouncer as the bridal party closes out a night of debauchery. I loved the sisters, Abby and Jan, as they struggle with their love lives. Jan is a hoot as the bride and Abby's older, crazier sister. Family dysfunction leads Abby to follow Jan's plan to find a "boyfriend" for Christmas when hers is MIA. Enter hunky bouncer, Vance and it's insta lust/love in this short story. There's lots of family drama a ...more

Y'all, if you are looking for a short but HOT novella about the holidays, My Holiday Secret is an awesome choice for you. It was short, sweet, and hot with MAJOR family drama. This might be steamy as all get out, but the story line is engaging and entertaining as well! I freaking love Vance, talk about tall, dark, and burly with a pretty good head on his shoulder as well.

All in all, I thought this was a fun read and enjoyed it immensely, even if I wished it was a bit longer, I will definitely b

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

Now, there are secrets and then there are secret secrets ( those that must never ever be revealed) but occasionally are. Abby and her sister Jan head out to celebrate, who needs an excuse eh. Abby is getting over her ex Chris and there in the bar she meets him...Vance the bouncer. Oh my word. He helps her out of a sticky situation and helps her into a sticky situation later on!!!

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

A rerelease of my first (and favourite) Jackson Kane novella, just in time for the holidays. Abby gets ditched by her friends while at a bar for her sister’s bachelorette party and is rescued by the bouncer, Vance. When Vance shows up the next day to return something Abby forgot, she manages to convince him to play the part of her fiancé at her family Christmas party that night. (She has neglected to tell her family that she and fiancé have broken up.) Vance agrees, and life ensues, both hilario ...more

Hot Christmas story alert!  This one has it all! Family stress - who doesn't experience that over the Christmas season? Stranger sex, creepy almost brother in law, excitement and drama.  Hard to believe that so much can happen in such a short period of time.
Abby is minding her sister during her bachelorette party, things get a little rough on the dance floor and Vance (totally not her type) comes to her rescue.The evening gets more exciting when Abby is left at the bar and needs to find her own

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

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

I loved this book last year when I read it and when I saw it had more added to it I couldn't wait to read it again. Abby has been dragged home for Christmas by her sister Jan for her Bachelorette party and isnt looking forward to christmas considering her fiancé just dumped her for another guy. She knows her mom isnt going to be very nice about chris leaving her so her sister gives her a. Idea for a fake fiancee. Vance is everything different then abby used to but maybe he
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.

This was such a fun and sexy read. It was great to know that characters were not perfect and had issues just like normal people. The characters were great! Their story kept me glued to my kindle. I read it nonstop till I sadly read the last word. Fantastic book! Check it out! I am voluntarily leaving my review after reading an advance reader copy from the author. I look forward to more from these outstanding authors!

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!

Highly recommended!

Vance and Abby from hot and steamy to hilarious and serious that keeps you wanting more and more.

This is a quick read ... but it was fun. Abby and Vance meet by chance when he saves her when she's out with her sister. These two have amazing chemistry and hit off quickly. When Vance shows up at her parents they both end up victims of the family fathering from hell lol. There's drama, lots of funny moments and a few steamy ones. Lots happens quickly and it keeps it interesting.
