Hot Holiday Nights by Jaci Burton
Release Date October 20, 2015
Victoria Baldwin is a successful sports agent who always puts work first—unless she’s on vacation. Then it’s all about play. On holiday in Hawaii over Christmas, she meets Alex McConnell, a successful young surfer on the islands for a surfing competition. She couldn’t think of a better vacation fling. But when she meets Ben Reynolds, Alex’s manager, she realizes she wants both men. This could be her hottest holiday ever, and the vacation that changes her life.
Tori (Victoria) is on holiday vacation from her career as a sporting agent in Hawaii. While on vacation, she meets pro-surfer, Alex and his business manager, Ben. The plot heats up quick. I’m not an insta-love fan, but with this being a novella, I understand the shorter timeline this book has…so it’s a given. At times the interactions and conversations between characters felt forced or awkward. With more character and scene development I think these moments would’ve been less forced. The communication between characters is healthy, but their relationship circumstances glossed over the (at times) functioning characteristics of a relationship involving more than one person. Such as one feeling left out, sharing of time, Ben and Alex’s feelings towards one another, etc. I’d like to see a full length novel of them in the future to see how their relationship plays out. I enjoyed Tori, Alex and Ben and if you want a hot, sexy, ménage book, pick this one up. Give it a try and find your next book crush! Rating: 3.5 stars
