A BAD BOY FOR CHRISTMAS                               JESSICA LEMMON

'Tis the Season to Be Naughty 

Connor McClain knows what he wants. And after four harrowing years in Afghanistan, that's a quiet life in the lakeside town of Evergreen Cove. But coming home has landmines of its own-the most dangerous of them being long-legged bombshell Faith Garrett. Now getting her into his arms this holiday is going to require more than mistletoe . . . 

With a cheating ex behind her, all Faith wants is a relaxing holiday free from man drama. And even though every moment with gorgeous Connor is a sweet temptation, Faith is determined not to give in. But Jack Frost has other plans, and soon Faith and Connor are snowbound in a winter wonderland with only the sparks flying between them to keep them warm. As one hot kiss leads to another, they'll have to decide if they're ready to give each other the best gift of all-love.      

MY REVIEW:

     This book is centered around Faith Garrett, 31, and Connor McClain the younger man.  Although, we never find out his age it is in the back of Faith’s mind nagging at her.  You see Faith’s mother is a world-famous author who is very eccentric and well known around Evergreen Cove.  Who after a failed relationship with her daughter’s father took on nothing but young boy toys thereafter.
     Then she chose to dictate how her eldest daughter should live her life and with whom.  Since she was not tiny and petite like she was she was the easy target all the time.  Then she doomed the relationship Faith was in to fail.  When her fiancé Michael, was caught having relations on the rug in the living room somehow it was her fault.  Even though she had always told Faith that all the women in her family were doomed never to marry do to a curse. 
     She dumped him and moved with her mom knew her mistake right off the bat.  She secured another job and got an apartment mistake solved.
     Her life changed, her new boss Sofie is also her new BFF, her event planning which she enjoys.  Everything was going great.  Best bonus of all seeing and bantering with Connor.  BFF to Donovan, who is also Sofie’s fiancé and owner of the mansion they work out of.  Although, Faith wasn’t ready for another guy in her life Connor always made her feel so good about herself.  He even gave her a cute nickname. 
     Well, semi-cute.  She had been having a bad day, loving sweets she went to her to go to food, the Devil Dog.  The chocolate goodness she loved with whipped crème.  Anyway, she was on a marathon of her own when he caught her with a cupcake at this point because she had bought those too, you know to top it off.  Now her nickname was, you got it…Cupcake!
     One day he hears that after Sofie, Charlie, and she have a girl’s night at her place watching scary movies something woke her at 1:30 a.m. It scared her so much that she called the police.  When Brady got there, an old-school friend, he came in and looked around the upstairs apartment and out on the balcony. Not seeing anything.  Told her though that her windows were not secure and her dead bolt was not that good on the door.
     Hearing the girls talking put Donnie an ex-military man on alert and in turn when Connor heard when coming up on the group he was on alert too.  Donnie said he would check for her as soon as he could.  Connor said he would check after she got off work.  In fact, her would follow her.  What he found…

     You will enjoy this book.  It’s fun, sexually charged, friend based, and a total romance for two people not looking for love.  I give this book 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at:  www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
