Book Review: Jingle This! by Stephanie Rowe

Title: Jingle This!
Author: Stephanie Rowe
Published: November 1st 2012
Age: Adult
Love. Diamonds. Mistletoe. And a one-on-one holiday assignment with a very sexy boss. Put it all together, and it's enough to ruin a girl's day.

Angie Miller has to write sizzling, evocative, heart-melting holiday stories about love, romance and diamonds for her company's newest client…an assignment that isn't so easy when she's just had her heart broken. When her first not-so-cheery story nearly gets her company fired, her boss Kyle Black makes it his personal mission to get Angie in the right mood to wax poetic about love and romance. The fact that there's three years' worth of unrequited sexual tension simmering between them? It just makes it all the more interesting when Kyle shows up in her office with his oh-so-broad shoulders, smoldering smile and…oh, yeah… his slightly autocratic ways… How is Angie supposed to find her muse again when Kyle keeps trying to have his way with her? Not "that" kind of way, but a girl can dream…
Jingle This! is a short story about Angie Miller, a writer who has been just dumped by her three years boyfriend just when she was expecting an engagement ring. Now she can't write about love, but her boss Kyle Black is sure he can get her into the romance-writing mood.

I read this while waiting at the airports. It was entertaining and easy to read, but I couldn't understand how Angie and Kyle could feel attraction to each other after their complicated past (including him dating her sister!). I don't think I could forget something like that, but anyway, they had chemistry and were destined to have a HEA after three years of sexual tension. Angie was sometimes silly, she said her heart was broken but her ex was an idiot and she immediately fall in love with Kyle. Kyle wasn't very nice with her either at first. and Angie's family were also kind of mean with her, so I didn't liked them either.

But anyway, Jingle This! is a nice and short story to read in a couple of hours before or after Christmas :)

  1. Sometimes with novellas I just have to put myself in the mindset that relationships are going to move at warp speed just so I can enjoy them lol

    Sounds cute.

  2. What's the heat level? Like would you recommend this for PG-13 readers?

    1. Sorry Beth, I forgot to add this one is for Adults. It's not too hot, but still I wouldn't be comfortable recommending it for younger readers. :)

  3. Sounds like a great christmas read!
    Happy reading,
