They’ve been friends for twenty years until … this Christmas.
How do you tell a sweet, naïve, and clearly vanilla girl that you like to tie women up and torture them for mutual enjoyment in your spare time? Josh Mackenzie has no idea, but when his best friend Emma walks in on him pleasuring himself, everything changes.
For Emma, coming face to face with her secret longings is mind-blowing. It’s one thing to fantasize about your best friend, but dare she take that leap into the unknown? Will it not ruin their friendship, and is—what would undoubtedly be awesome—sex worth risking that?
While Josh shares her fears, she is all he’s ever wanted in a woman, and he’s determined to show her that they can have it all. This woman is his to mark, cherish, and love forever, and he’ll prove it to her, one spank at a time.
There's always something about friends-to-lovers stories that is endearing to a reader. Emma and Josh have known each other for twenty years and have been best of friends. When Emma's ex does the dirty, Josh is the one who comes to her rescue and starts sharing the flat with her so she doesn't get into financial trouble.
Of course living together brings complications and they find themselves falling for each other. But what's going to happen when they cross the line? And what if they don't gel together? Are they willing to risk losing each other?
As always, this author manages to mix the sweet with the erotic. Josh and Emma's pre-sex friendship was a yummy as warm cinnamon and apple cake and yet when they got together there was enough heat to warm up the room. I love that although there was some kink, it wasn't heavy and really wasn't the focus of the story. Although the characters worries about how that would affect the other.
On the whole, this was a fun and light read, full of cheer that I expect in a Christmas story and with enough steam to keep me satisfied. If you're looking for an erotic book this festive season, you can't go wrong with this one.
