A feast she wasn’t expecting!
Clover Greene would sooner crawl into her oven than host family for Thanksgiving dinner. Yet another annual ritual of too much food, served with a side of criticism over “Clover’s Bad Life Choices.” This year, she needs to distract them all—with a handsome fake boyfriend. And she has the perfect guy in mind.
Contractor Erick Fields is the poster boy for sexy single dads, and Clover has been secretly crushing on him for ages. She certainly wasn’t expecting Erick to agree to her insane charade…or to add lots of hot, wicked sex to the deal. If they can pull it off, the worst Thanksgiving ever might give them something to be really thankful for!
I haven’t even read the last book in this trilogy but I’m already convinced that this is my favorite. Her Naughty Holiday is just as fun and sexy as Her Halloween Treat, but there’s some seriousness to it as well. I adore Clover, Erick and Ruthie. I could happily read a whole series about them as their lives go on. I can’t recommend this installment enough! This is the second book in a holiday trilogy: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas – and can be read alone. Previous characters are mentioned but I promise you won’t miss out on anything. Still, I’d definitely read them all just to get in on the fun.
I loved this for a few reasons. 1) Clover reminds me of the old ME, a little. I used to be quiet and very passive – not wanting to make a fuss out of anything but keeping to myself how much my feelings are hurt. Now, I’m just quiet. That passive shit is for the birds. Luckily, I don’t go to my family gatherings anymore and when I do see them it’s hi & bye. Clover’s family are just plain old snobs. The way they talked to her, but tried to sugarcoat it all up, just pissed me off. I’m glad that Erick came along when he did. Which brings me to my next point. 2) Erick has got to be the greatest father ever. It doesn’t hurt that he’s hot, but his bond with his 17 yr-old daughter, Ruthie, is adorable. They bicker like siblings, but he is first and foremost her parent. I love that whole hot-single-dad-contractor thing he has going on. 3) Ruthie is my type of girl. She is all ecofeminism and hooking her boss (Clover) up with her dad. Clover needs someone to play boyfriend for Thanksgiving. I’m so glad that she decided against Sven, the male escort.
Clover and Erick hit it off immediately. It felt right since they’ve been checking each other out for a whole year, but doing nothing about it. Clover has been through so much and she turned out to be a happy person. Well, when her judgmental family aren’t around. This girl runs her own business and could possibly be a millionaire if she sells it. What happens at Thanksgiving? Does Clover sell her business? You have to read to find out. This installment is even better than the first one, so I am eager to read One Hot December.
If you want some fun reads this fall, I highly recommend this trilogy. They are quick, fun sexy and filled with holiday debauchery. You will enjoy every second!
