The Official Recipe for Nathan Benson:
2 cups cockiness
1 mouth that’s far sexier when it’s shut
1 huge ego that can’t fit in the damn mixer
1 BIG, HARD co—Well, you get the picture…
As a professional baker, I can tell exactly what a man is made of the moment he walks through my shop’s frosted glass doors.
So, the moment Nathan Benson showed up over half an hour late to our blind date (with no explanation), caught the gaze of every woman in the diner with his panty-wetting smile, and said, “I personally don’t think we should waste any more of our time sitting here talking,” after only five minutes of conversation, I knew he was one of the rudest concoctions ever created.
I also knew there was no way in hell I was going to see him again.
Or, so I thought.
Days after I abandoned him on our first date, he tracked me down with one hell of a way to get me to agree to a second one. (And a third, and a fourth.)
I swear if it weren’t for the fact that I was being blackmailed by the sexiest man I’ve ever met, I would’ve reported him to the authorities a long time ago.
Then again, holding out for a few late night kisses (and maybe a bit more) from his mouth of perfection may not be a complete recipe for disaster after all…
I am always excited to hear Whitney G. is releasing a new book or novella. I was even more excited when I realized this time she was giving us a holiday novella. I haven’t read many of those this season, and I’ve been wanting to pick one up.
Late Night Kisses was fun and flirty. It was about two people who meet on a blind date and get off on the wrong foot. Christina is not impressed with Nathan, and it’s up to him to convince her that they’re perfect for each other. That might not sound much like a holiday novella, but set in a town that revolves around Christmas, holiday wishes, snow, and some baking, the holiday cheer was abundant.
I really enjoyed Late Night Kisses. Christina and Nathan had a great enemies to lovers vibe going on like only Whitney G. can write. The banter was sexy and hilarious. I liked both Christina and Nathan. I could feel their instant connection. The start to their relationship was so much fun. Although, I’m not sure I would have given Nathan a second chance at all. I’m glad Christina did.
This was a novella, so it was short and sweet. I liked that and then I didn’t. Whitney G. always makes me want more. I wanted a full length novel and love story out of Late Night Kisses because I would have enjoyed it that much more. I wanted to experience more build up and development. I did get one amazing ending, though!
