A Very Bossy Christmas by Alexis Winter

Title: A Very Bossy Christmas

Author: Alexis Winter

Genre: Holiday, Romance, Novella, Contemporary

Publisher:

Type: Standalone

Pages: 141

Goodreads Rating: 4/5

If someone told Kate that she would be spending her Christmas holiday with her family and her insufferable, nasty piece of work boss Damon Wells, under the same roof, she would have sucker-punched them to hell. Yet now, here she is, not yet sure why her horrible, horrible boss is pretending to be her boyfriend in front of her family when she never even asked for it. Or why she is enjoying this fairy tale a little too much. Alexis Winter’s A Very Bossy Christmas is a fun, short, sexy read filled with humor and a romance that burns brighter than the sun.

P.S.: This book is available on Kindle Unlimited. If you have subscribed to it, then you can read this book for free.

Why do we recommend this book?

And to finish off this list, what better to recommend than a Christmas romance? Damon is incredibly infuriating at times, but luckily Winter gives us glimpses inside his head throughout the book, enough to make you forgive his jerk behavior. Kate, on the other hand, is hilarious, spunky, and fun to follow along with, as she is left wondering about her boss and his mood swings. A very light, breezy read for the holidays, A Very Bossy Christmas is 100% recommended for anyone.

Harper Wallis lives a relatively normal life, for a demon. That changes when she meets Knox Thorne, Prime of the biggest demon lair of Las Vegas, who also turns out to be her ‘anchor’. Dark, secretive, and dangerous, Knox isn’t used to being denied, but even more than that, he is not used to not being feared. When Harper, his elusive, unpredictable, and stubborn anchor does both of them, she catches his interest and attention. But the demons of the country are causing a stir, and this is the worst time for Knox to have his attention diverted. Especially as the dangers of his past starts to close in on Harper. The first 4 books in this series follow Knox and Harper, while the next book focuses on the supporting characters.

Why do we recommend this book?

The world-building and the concepts of demons (inspired from various mythologies and then modernized), the anchors, and their powers are all incredibly done by Suzanne Wright, and Harper and Knox are one of the hottest, most badass couples on this list. Honestly speaking, almost all the books by Suzanne Wright are some of the best romance novels, but the Dark in You series remains her most loved book to date, and that’s for a reason.

Why do we recommend this book?

#4 Misconduct by Penelope Douglas

Misconduct by Penelope Douglas

Title: Misconduct

Author: Penelope Douglas

Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Adult, Politics

Publisher: NAL (New American Library)

Type: Standalone

Pages: 368

Goodreads Rating: 4/5

Easton is a former Tennis Star, currently a history teacher, trying to move on from her dark past and her own broken self. She doesn’t want any excitement to add to her already complicated life. But when she meets Tyler Marek, a famous politician and businessman (and the guy she had a brief, flirty encounter with a few months ago), at a parents-teachers meeting, she realizes that might be a dream thrown away at best. As a guardian to her student, Tyler is off-limits. No matter how much they both want it, they can’t indulge in each other’s life any more than they already have. Did she mention Tyler is incredibly hot? Yeah, it’s going to be a lot harder to get rid of these new feelings, especially when her old secrets have started to come to the front.

Why do we recommend this book?

The writing is easy to understand and both the protagonists have their own charms, not to mention the fact that we get to dive into both their minds, making Misconduct a charming, simple read. Easton’s past is a little dark though, but thankfully, it (as well as the politics) doesn’t take away much time from the relationship growth of the two.

#5 Off-Campus Series by Elle Kennedy


About the Book

Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy
Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy

Title: Off-Campus

Author: Elle Kennedy

Genre: Romance, New Adult, Contemporary, Sports, College

Publisher: Elle Kennedy Inc.

Type: Series

No. of Books: 5

Books in it: #1 The Deal, #2 The Mistake, #3 The Score, 4# The Goal, #5 The Legacy

Goodreads Rating: 4/5

A series of standalone novels, the Off-campus series follows different couples in college as they work through their dreams, grades, personal growth, and of course, love. A romance starting with deals, mistakes (and even more mistakes), and chase, Off-campus has got something for everyone. These people might be the most incompatible couple anyone can ever imagine, but their romance will definitely set the campus ablaze.

Why do we recommend this book?

A very chill read for anyone looking for something short and simple, the Off-campus series presents 4 different couples and their clichéd yet unique stories to chose from. All of these books and their characters are interconnected, but you need not read one to start with the other. It is one of those feel-good books where you are guaranteed a fairy tale ending. Except there is nothing innocent about these college-goers (please, just how do they get the time to do anything besides studying and catching up on months of lost sleep while in college?).

Why do we recommend this book?

LOGAN!!!!! Everyone loves bad boys. But do you know what’s even better? A real, consistently good boy who knows when to turn bad. Logan is an absolute sweetheart and the ultimate dream man, and if you don’t wish to create unreasonable standards for men in your head, maybe don’t read this.

Camille Logan has just come out of a scandal. But when she meets her cold, dark and handsome bodyguard, she is sure she is about to jump right into another one. Jake Sharp has got plenty of demons of his own, and the last thing he wants to do is be around a sheltered, whiny princess.

P.S.: This book is available on Kindle Unlimited. If you have subscribed to it, then you can read this book for free.

Why do we recommend this book?

A story about forgiving and embracing all your flaws and demons, The Protector is a pretty typical story about how love can overcome all hurdles. But the characters are rich and complex and the stakes are serious enough for it to be a worthy recommendation for this list.

#8 The Sweetest Oblivion by Danielle Lori

Author: Danielle Lori

Genre: Dark, Contemporary, Romance, Adult, Mystery, Crime

Publisher: Createspace

Type: Standalone (Book 1 in Made Series)

Pages: 384

Goodreads rating: 4.1/5

The first book in a series of standalone books, The Sweetest Oblivion by Danielle Lori is a dark, thrilling, and sexy novel where while Elena is trying to run away from her damaged past, her new to-be brother-in-law is making it harder to run away from herself. Add to the fact that Nicolas Russo is a walking, talking sex, Elena has started to realize that maybe she is addicted to darkness after all. A mafia romance, The Sweetest Oblivion follows Elena and Nicolas’s journey as they test the waters (very dangerous waters) with their forbidden romance.

Why do we recommend this book?

Nicolas is hot. Like hot. Uber hot. Psycho, possessive, you can never escape from me hot. Danielle Lori does sexual tension so well. And c’mon, everyone knows that no one loves quite as a mafia does. So yeah. Read it for our favorite psychopath. You won’t regret it.

P.S.: This book is available on Kindle Unlimited. If you have subscribed to it, then you can read this book for free.

Genre: Contemporary, Adult, Marriage, Humor

Publisher: Tantor and Blackstone

Type: Standalone

Pages: 388

Goodreads rating: 4.1/5

Vienna is indebted to her boss Dane Davenport, the ruthless, unforgiving businessman, which is why she agrees to return his favor. By marrying him. It’s just a contract, and Vienna is 100% positive that she can keep her personal and professional life separated. Even though she has had the biggest crush on Dane for years now, she isn’t about to ruin her whole career over it. Just one year. She just has to pretend to be his loving wife for one year, and then they would never have to see each other again. But when one argument leads to them crossing all the lines, Vienna isn’t so sure that she would be able to leave anymore.

Why do we recommend this book?

Vienna is one feisty heroine who never lets Dane walk over her. She is Dane’s personal assistant, and as such knows him almost as well as he knows himself. Dane is a workaholic, and it’s absolutely endearing to see him change over the course of the book for Vienna. Written in the first-person POV of Vienna, Wright does a great job of depicting both the protagonists’ feelings and their relationship development without cutting back on the sexy times.

P.S.: This book is available on Kindle Unlimited. If you have subscribed to it, then you can read this book for free.

Title: The Takeover

Author: T.L. Swan

Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Humor, Adult

Publisher: Montlake

Type: Standalone (Book 2 in The Miles High Club Series)

Pages: 477

Goodreads rating: 4.5/5

Claire is a widowed, single mother to three boys. Tristan Miles is a businessman who wants to take over Claire’s late husband’s company. Claire hates him, while Tristan wants her in his bed. When Claire turns him down (obviously because she hates him, totally not because he makes all of her senses come to life with just a look) she thinks that would be it. Until months later they meet again, and this time she can no longer deny their attraction. Especially when Tristan is hell-bent on not letting her run away from him once again.

P.S.: This book is available on Kindle Unlimited. If you have subscribed to it, then you can read this book for free.

Why do we recommend this book?

A determined, sassy heroine; her protective, troublemaker kids; one hot business magnate who isn’t going to let anything stand between him and what he wants. The Takeover is the second book in The Miles High Club series (the best book in the series, honestly), but it can be treated as a standalone (as long as you don’t mind spoilers from the first book) and it’s a witty, charming, and incredibly hot read.

Goodreads rating: 4.3/5

Scarlet is on a run from her abusive ex, and going undercover to a small town seems like the perfect plan to find some reprieve. She is supposed to find dirt on Daniel Love, the reclusive billionaire whose past seems to be full of secrets, which would have been a whole lot easier if the young, charming man wasn’t hell-bent on charming her clothes off. They both have secrets, and it’s only a matter of time before it ruins their budding romance. But is there any harm in indulging in just a little bit of sweetness until then? Scarlet and Daniel don’t think so.

P.S.: This book is available on Kindle Unlimited. If you have subscribed to it, then you can read this book for free.

Why do we recommend this book?

Yeah, that was a bad decision on their part. But isn’t love all about bad decisions? Anyways, Daniel and Scarlet are super cute together, and their relationship is very mature, as in they communicate well (minus all the stuff that they are knowingly hiding from each other). Their flirty conversations are hilarious, and their attraction to each other is a treat to read. Also, the younger guy falling for an older women’s trope is just so underrated!
