The Gift?
Plane Tickets to his parents cabin in Colorado.

Little did each of them know they have been the stars in each others erotic fantasies since the day they met.



I grabbed this book off Amazon for free when I knew that I would be seeing this author at an author signing.

I love novella’s because they give you a feeling for an author and their series.  If I like a novella for a series I am more inclined to read a whole book in the series.  Well this book gave me a great bit of insight to this authors writing. I gotta tell ya, I am super excited to read more!

So this short but sweet story does end in kinda a cliffhanger but not really a cliff hanger??  Does that make sense??  In a way this book is set up for as a serial, IMO, then a novella…does that kinda clarify my comments about it being cliff hangery???

Annabelle and Jackson have had it bad for each other for a long time.  When they both end up staying at Annabelle’s family cabin at the same time and don’t know it….wow baby does it get steamy.

I loved that we, the reader, knew both the characters were at the house together but it took a few chapters for the characters to discover it and WHAT A WAY TO DISCOVER IT!!!

This is a super quick, steamy read but one I can’t wait to finish!
