I could so totally relate to this book because like Nick I to am a Grinch at Christmas. Although in my case it's because it's to dam hot here in Australia to enjoy it . But in Nick's case he actually loves Christmas but seems to turn into a cranky Grinch around Holly . In secret he likes her loves her even but he has to keep up his image where she is concerned mostly because he is her boss but privately he gets a kick out watching her mumbel under her breath calling him all sorts of not so nice Christmas names . Holly loves Christmas she is named Holly Mistletoe Winter after all . Her sisters are also named after Christmas themes. ( Her parents have slot to answer for in this readers opinion . See like I said I'm the Grinch )
Nick tells Holly that they are going on a business trip right before Christmas she is not amused as you can imagine but has no choice but to go. Once there she sees a different side of Nick and realises he isn't as bad as she thought. Nick makes his move on Holly and Passion ignites only for Holly to freak out after because Nick is her boss after all . With some hilarious advice from her sister Ginger Holly sets out to make things right with Nick and give him a present he won't be able to unwrap quick enough. I really enjoyed this quick story and look forward to reading the next book in the series even if it is a Christmas one.
I am officially moving to Reindeer Falls where everyone is on Christmas crack and fluffy waffles are on the menu. In a land where parents name their children Ginger, Noel and Holly Winter, I was hopeful for some seriously funny banter and sexually charged Christmas innuendos, and am happy to proclaim that I got them.
Holly Winter works for the insufferable Nick Saint-Croix. With his grumpy personality, it's ironic that the 'hot grinch' runs a toy company. Regardless of how damn fine he is, Holly is certain that she only tolerates him for the perks of the job. Even if she is completely clueless of the underlying attraction.
But when she is asked to accompany Mr Saint-Croix on a business trip, it seems she'll be tolerating him in close quarters. Except once the animosity wears off, they discover that they can't keep their hands off each other.
With her knack for writing hero's guaranteed to get you hot under the collar, amusing dialogue that has you bursting into laughter and dirty sexy times, you simply can't go wrong with any Jana Aston books. The Boss Who Stole Christmas is the perfect festive rom-com.
This book definitely deserves five stars. Nick was so gorgeous - kind, gentle, hopeful, sexy and teasing. Holly was smart, passionate and hilarious. Loved it! Can't wait for the next one. Another brilliant book by Jana Aston, definitely a must buy.
What’s not to love about this book?!! It might be very short due to being a novella, but it sure packed a punch in all the feels. Hot grumpy boss, sweet innocent employee and a picturesque business trip to the wholly grail of Christmas towns!
Holly is all about Christmas, her whole family is, hence all the girls names. She loves her job working at the Flying Reindeer Toy Company until Nick Saint-Croix comes to take over from his retiring uncle to run the business. But he’s a grinch, Mr Scrooge himself, and some might even call him a jackal! Well that’s what Holly sees, because if she is honest with herself, she’d fall hard for him.
I had a great time just relaxing with this book and escaping into the world of a magical Christmas. Holly is adorable and her flustering will make you laugh. And Nick is not the jackal that Holly believes him to be, yeah he is a bit gruff but with good reason. The way he is attentive to her on their business trip and how he shows her the markets.... swoon! I do wish it was a little longer as I loved these two a lot, it would have been a great slow burn novel, but it takes nothing away from how wrapped up this book is in a short time. Looking forward to the sisters stories.
I enjoyed this quick light hearted Christmas themed book ! Holly is a Christmas addict who loves everything Christmas she’s also slightly annoyingly in denial about how much she likes her sweet gorgeous grinch of a boss ! As the book unfolds though we learn he’s not so grinch like he just likes her a lot ! It’s written well , is short and sweet but builds the world of reindeer falls and the community well and makes me want to read the rest of the series ! There’s some hot scenes between the mc’s and their chemistry is sizzling ! If you want a Christmassy romance this one is great !
I LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!! This is what I want my Christmas novellas to be. Hilarity, heat and ho ho hoing...
Nick and Holly's story is a perfect Christmas tale for me. Slightly quirky/funny girl and her brooding/alpha boss. It's a match made in a German Christmas Market!
Throw in a spot of inappropriate action on a church balcony, some taxi cab shenanigans and two sisters who are so funny I am legit dying for their books and Jana made me a very happy little elf! Can't wait for book 2. Definitely recommend
