Hunk for the Holidays by Katie Lane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I won a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads, and here's my honest review:
Despite the fact that the conflict came from "a big misunderstanding" (James is mistaken for her paid escort & doesn't tell Cassandra otherwise), this was still pretty good. Usually I want to throw things at the characters in books like that, because everything could be easily wrapped up with basic, honest communication. But here, if James had been completely honest with Cassandra right from the start, I doubt she would have given herself the chance to get to know him. And he really did try to come clean several times, but his sex drive sort of got in the way. Plus I think he knew their connection would be toast if she knew who he was, and he really did like her for more than just sex. I think both characters were very likable, and neither did anything to annoy me (which is a very positive point, despite how it may sound). The angst was kept to a minimum, which is a plus for me.
This was a light, quick, fairly hot read (nothing too extreme), almost fluffy in that it didn't tax my brain too much, but with enough substance to keep my interest. Winner. :)
