Summary from the publisher:

Tis the season for double seduction.

The only item on Jana Colton's Christmas list this year is Kevin Monahan. Preferably naked in her bed. The delicious, hunky chef has been resisting her forever, but she's pulling out all the sexy stops this holiday. Especially since his acceptance of an out-of-state job threatens to nix her quest to rock his boxers off.

Jana has always been Kevin's personal Kryptonite, but giving in to her isn't an option. Relationships are a four-letter word in his book. He cares far too much for Jana to let his emotional baggage ultimately break her heart.

With the arrival of his best friend, Nick Pappas, the balance of temptation shifts. From their past history of sharing women, Nick knows every dirty trick it takes to lead Kevin astray, and he's not afraid to use them. Particularly since Nick's convinced that Jana is exactly what Kevin needs to be happy and whole.

Their game of seduction quickly snowballs into something that feels an awful lot like love--in triplicate. But with Kevin dead set on leaving Michigan, there's a real possibility it could be a blue Christmas for them all.

Warning: This book contains an extremely tormented voyeur, a very naughty and not so saintly Nick, a liberal application of candy cane-flavored body paint, a buzzing butterfly, and enough raunchy fun on a sex swing to melt a snowman...or two.


My Musings:

First off, this book is a sequel to The Naughty List which I did not realize until I started reading.  It is not necessary to read the first book to enjoy Checking it Twice, but it was so much fun I have already ordered the first one.

Jana and Kevin have know each other for five years and have been in love/lust for most of that time.  Due to emotional issues in Kevin’s past, he has resisted his feelings for her although Jana has done her best to seduce him.  He knows that he is incapable of giving Jana what she needs in a relationship. Years ago, he even lost his best friend due to his problems.

And now, he is leaving town . . . for good.

Jana loves Kevin and cannot understand why he won’t give them a chance.  She is also worried about her feelings for Nick.  Although they have never met, they have carried on a long distance flirtation through phone and email.  Can she really be in love with two men?

So, guess who comes to town and just happens to be Kevin’s long-lost best friend?

Nick has regretted the end of his friendship with Kevin for years.  Now that he has found him, he is not going to lose him again.  He has also realized his feelings for Jana have gone beyond a flirtation and it is time for them to meet face-to-face.  What he did not realize is that Jana is in love with another man.  Kevin.

Nick has known Kevin since they shared a room in college and that is not all they shared.  Kevin’s voyeurism kink quite often let to M/F/M threesomes. Kevin’s background has made him ashamed of his sexual preferences.  He is afraid to get close to anyone because he “knows” they will leave him when they find out what he is really like. But Nick knows that there is no reason Jana should have decide which man she really loves.  She can have Kevin and Nick too.

Jana is not at all adverse to a relationship with both men.  After all, her brother is in such a relationship already. --Remember book one, The Naughty List?-- And Jana is not shy about going after what she wants.

I loved this book.  It was a light, fun read, but there was also emotional depth.  Kevin, Nick, and Jana are all wonderful characters.  There were times I wanted to tell Kevin to get over himself, but that is only because I wanted everyone to be happy.

Read this book!  Especially if you like M/F/M menages, light bondage, and some really hot shower scenes.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
