Five Golden Rings by Jeffe Kennedy
(Novella #4: Facets of Passion Series)
Rating: 5/5 stars
What could be better than Christmas in Cozumel at an exclusive resort with a hot man and the promise of rest and relaxation and some fantastic sex? Pretty much nothing; that’s one damn fine week Tilda Campbell has planned. Too bad all those plans got scrapped the second her man dumped over the phone while she was waiting at the airport for their flight. Balls!! With the week already planned and the time from work already taken off, Tilda boards that flight with the intention of mending her broken heart and salvaging what she can of the week. Little does Tilda know how radically her last-minute plans are about to change.
Miguel d’Oro is on his way to the family-owned resort and Cozumel to negotiate a large and very personal deal. Though he would rather not be spending Christmas working, his plans begin to look up considerably when he meets Tilda Campbell en route. After a brief and very flirtatious conversation, Miguel and Tilda (aka Roo) decide they will not only spend the week together but they will do so in a most naughty and experimental manner. Though she has never done anything so reckless or exciting, Roo is willing to not only experiment but to also leave all of the planning and execution to Miguel. With a safe word in place, Roo and Miguel embark on their own wonderfully naughty Twelve Days of Christmas.
The excitement and the sex play begin almost immediately with a sexy dinner and the promise of a gift the next morning. You see, though Roo has never done anything quite so naughty, Miguel has and he has planned a gift and event related to each of the twelve days of Christmas. True to his word, Roo finds a lovely little sex toy and significantly revealing outfit delivered to her the very next morning. Though nervous, Roo decides to play the game and much to her very, very great pleasure is rewarded by Miguel, his incredible stamina and, creative mind. Up to this point, Roo had no idea orgasms could be so plentiful and so damn good!! And so, the Twelve Days of Christmas begins . . .
For most of the twelve days, events related to Roo and Miguel’s sexual relationship continue on with few interruptions, a great deal of inventiveness and, a great deal of pleasure. But, Roo is a very smart and perceptive woman and knows that things with Miguel and his negotiations are not going well. On several occasions Roo attempts to engage Miguel in conversation about his negotiations but is shut down each and every time. With only a few small outbursts, Miguel refuses to discuss the negotiations and when things finally come to a head, the Twelve Days of Christmas comes to an early end. Though Roo understands Miguel’s decision to leave, it does nothing to relieve the slightly unsatisfied and disappointed feelings she is experiencing. But, perhaps Miguel has one last play that will leave all involved totally and completely satisfied.
The Bottom Line: I am all kinds of in love with Jeffe Kennedy’s Facets of Passion series. Each novella can be read as a stand-alone should you choose too, each read is full of interesting and naughty moments with only the tiniest bit of kink, each read has distinctly different and fully-developed characters and, each read is well written and fully resolved with no unanswered questions or loose ends. For me, these short, fast and thoroughly entertaining reads satisfy my need for good storytelling and erotica all rolled up into one naughty little package.

Hot! Hot! Hot!Reviewed in the United States on 25 August 2020
If you enjoy singing the Twelve Days of Christmas, appreciate inventive BDSM games, and love the push-me-pull-you of strangers' attraction growing into love, then Five Golden Rings should be your next read. The luscious locale of Cozumel is the perfect backdrop for Mathilda's transformation into Roo under Miguel's decadent holiday pleasuring. I'm glad I didn't wait until the fifth day of Christmas to read. Don't you wait either. Read it today.

I can't get enough of Jeffe Kennedy! This book had less character development than her others but still managed to pull off excellence. The writing style is good. She uses teasing and reward to the best benefit. She writes well executed BDSM scenes, not stopping with a few swats on the bottom as so many in the genre do. She's not above pushing the limits, just as a good Dominant will do. And the sex scenes are hot! If this will be your first Jeffe Kennedy book, I can guarantee it won't be your last.
