All Holly wants to do is get on a bus and make it to her sister’s house for Christmas morning. But when her ex-boyfriend shows up at the bus stop and brings a huge box full of stuff for her and leaves – she is unable to take it on the bus, and is stranded at the bus stop on Christmas Eve.
Kalen sees his sister safe on the bus, and then notices a woman who may need help. He offers to drive Holly to her sister’s, and she is grateful. Kalen and Holly actually went to high school together. He was the big football star, and Holly always had a crush on him. She can’t believe he is the one who offers her help.
On the drive, they get stuck in bad weather, and end up at Holly’s family’s cabin – together.
I usually love when a hero and heroine are stranded in a cabin together but this story didn’t work very well for me. There was no emotional connection between Holly and Kalen. This book is definitely an erotic romance, and there are plays on the title:
“No wait. I want to see you. To touch you.”
He drew back and sat beside her, then nodded. “Okay, now I have to admit, I’m a bit nervous.”
“Why?” she asked, using every ounce of willpower to stop her hand from stroking over his thigh…then upward until she found his hard erection.
“Because I don’t want to scare you.”
I love the set-up of a hero with an extra-large penis. Why not? It could be super fun. But in this book, it’s more sad because no one has ever wanted the Kalen for himself, just for his penis.
He crouched down and took her hands. “Look, I meant it. I don’t want you to feel scared or intimidated. If you don’t want to deal with it, I understand. Believe me, there have been other women who just didn’t feel they could cope with it and they walked away.”
Instead of a fun exploration of this huge ding-a-ling, it’s a little morose. And like I said earlier, I didn’t feel any chemistry or emotions between these two. The sex scenes were a little silly and the conversation between Kalen and Holly didn’t flow smoothly. For all of these reasons, I can’t recommend this one.
