Clover has to host her family for Thanksgiving. Her relationship with her family is . . . not the best, and she knows her best chance of surviving the holiday is to bring a fake boyfriend to soften them up. Her teenage employee, Ruthie, sets Clover up with her dad, Erick. The two have been eyeing each other for the last year, so this is the perfect excuse to finally let the sparks fly. And man, the sparks DO fly! But the fake relationship/real sex-filled weekend quickly turns into so much more. Clover just may survive the holidays after all thanks to a man who loves working with his hands, raising his daughter, and showing Clover that she's worth more than the snide remarks her family gives her.
I can't even describe to you how much fun this story was. I was smiling, snorting, or straight-up laughing for most of it. And fanning my Kindle the rest of the time. An all around win, really.
I adored Reisz's Original Sinners, and while I'm still sad that series is over, I'm so glad to see her giving us other books to dive into. Reisz proves here that she can bring the sexy and the laughs, and really what more could you even ask for?
I loved that Erick turned into such a dirty talker the more turned on he was. No, seriously,, those are even his own words:
This made for a hot scene (obviously) but also a nice laugh. Of course Clover's curiosity was quickly appeased:
Spoiler: He did, indeed, keeping talking. :)
I loved Erick's interactions and relationship with his daughter, and I especially loved that he did NOT consider himself a "Mr. Mom".
I really hated Clover's family for the way they treated her, the things they said every time they turned around. But I loved when Clover finally stood up and told them all off, one by one. And then Erick defended her and did the same. I totally fist-bumped that scene while reading it.
This is a quick story, only spanning a handful of days. But I didn't feel like the HEA wasn't possible or believable in that time, probably due to a combination of them having known each other already and Reisz's pure talent.
Her Naughty Holiday is a true rom-com with a good dose of sexy and some family holiday drama thrown in. I could easily see this turned into an excellent romantic comedy movie, just saying. If you need something to make you giggle and smile from beginning to end, grab this one now! I'm looking forward to going back to book 1 before enjoying the final installment in this holiday themed trilogy in December.
