Holiday Hell is a good read. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters. Sheridan is a tough woman because she does not want to get hurt again. Brady is not as tough, he opens up easier than Sheridan does. Brady finds out that all the animosity they felt towards each other was a block for their actual feelings. Brady wants Sheridan but does not want to push her too far too fast. Sheridan gives in in the moment but then pulls away from Brady every time, but the end. She does not want to open herself up to get hurt again. Sheridan feels very deeply and so she doesn't let many people in. Her past in the foster homes and before have only made her even more wary of people. Brady started out having a hard life but was lucky when his grandparents stepped in and changed his life for the better. This story is not completely predictable but it does not keep you on your toes. It is full of romance though, well what Sheridan will allow. This story is a good romantic story that definitely has its happy ending.
Genre: Multicultural Contemporary
A "Not Quite Christmas" Story
Length: Short Novel
Or at least that’s what Sheridan Lewis believes. With plans to hide away for the rest of the season, she’s dismayed to be sent on a trip so close to Christmas with her boss and arch nemesis, Brady McGuire. Not only does she have to suffer through the season, but work closely with a man who thinks he’s hot stuff because he’s the CEO’s grandson. So what if he has dreamy eyes, broad shoulders and a physique any Olympian would be jealous of, nothing good could possibly come out of their trip together.
There’s nothing more that Brady McGuire wants to do than take Sheridan Lewis over his knee and give her the spanking she sorely deserves. She’s loud, obnoxious, and has a Napoleon complex. It’s bad enough dealing with her on a daily basis, but being through together for a two week trip where they’ll have to work closely together. No way. The last thing he wants is his holidays to be ruined by this little Scrooge. So what if her very scent drives him mad and she has a body made for sinning. She’s still a pain in the ass.
Thrown together during the holidays, these two headstrong idiots may just find their common ground in each other and turn their hell into a holiday after all.
