Buy Proving Santa Exists!
When Jonathan transferred from the U.S to the Manchester branch of Computers Inc Jenny was the first person to make him feel at home. Finding out about his bleak Christmases as a boy she made up her mind to involve him in all her English Christmas traditions.
"The lights are easily trailed through the forest of baubles, Santa's, fairies, and hanging toys. "Right, just the tinsel now. You start at the top, and I'll go from the bottom, and we'll meet in the middle."
Passion sparks between the two as they decorate the Christmas tree, who would have thought such an innocent activity could become so sexually charged? Can Jenny succeed in seducing the hot American and also prove to him that Santa really does exist?
Tinsel trails through my fingertips as I twirl around the tree, stooping low, then bending at the waist, then almost standing straight with just my shoulders stooped. As I raise my head to see how Jonathan is doing, I crack against something hard.
"Oh, I am sorry." I reach out automatically and rub my hand against Jonathan's bumped chin, cupping his cheek in the palm of my hand, like a parent comforting an injured baby. However, the slight prickle of his end-of-the-day stubble reminds me in a powerful way that this is a grown man I'm handling so intimately.
Then, there are lips: softly demanding lips pressing gently against my own. They form a kiss. They don't apologise or ask permission; they take possession of my mouth. Brooking no argument, confidently they mesh with mine, moving sensually as his hands come round me, sheltering me, cradling me close. No sooner has it been created than the kiss is torn apart. We are red cheeked, unable to meet each other's eyes.
"I'll, erm, turn on the lights then." I scurry over to the plug, and flip the switch. "Ooh," I gasp as the lights come on, bathing my room in festive cheer. "It looks just about perfect." I walk back to the tree and tweak the tinsel here and there, so the lights come through a bit clearer. Jonathan says nothing, just stares into the softly glowing tackiness."
Mrs Giggles Loves Proving Santa Exists!
Proving Santa Exists is a bite-sized 23-paged (counting cover and all) ebook that surprisingly enough feels like a complete story despite its short length. Victoria Blisse has spinned a pretty enjoyable fantasy just in time for Christmas.
Told in first person, this story features heroine Jessica who is known as "Jolly Jessica" in the Manchester branch office of the imaginatively-named company Computers Inc because she's that plump and adorable woman who is everybody's good friend. When the handsome Jonathan is transferred from the Texas branch, Jessica is sure that he'll see her as a pleasant friend like everyone else does. Still, she should do something for the poor man since he's all alone and Christmas is just around the corner. She has to get him to celebrate Christmas with her and her family. This leads to a kiss that surprises them both and later Christmas songs play during the grand... er, climax of the story.
The characters in the story are normal, which is to say they are not neurotic, crazy, angst-ridden, undercover, vampiric, or liable to turning into hairy creatures when the moon is full. Instead, this is a story of likeable people that I can meet everyday in real life in a story where the sexual situation comes naturally. There is no contrived set-up to get the main characters to have sex - the attraction and the sex here come off as a natural progression of the events that happen in the story. I like the heroine and she's a sweet character without coming off as too bizarre or stalkerish in her desire to see the hero spend Christmas with friends.
With this book clocking in at 23 pages, I can't say much about depth and characterization because realistically, there isn't much of any of these in Proving Santa Exists. Nonetheless this story feels complete, like an actual story, unlike some other Phaze books I've read, and the romance is nicely build up to a satisfying conclusion. This story could've been longer - and I wish it is - but with it being what it is, I'd like think of this book as a satisfying appetizer to build up the mood for longer books in the TBR pile. Proving Santa Exists is a quick and actually satisfying read to me so if you think the price of the book is reasonable for its length, who knows, you too may like what you'll find in this one.
4 Hearts from Love Romances and More!
Jenny and her friend are wondering why the new, handsome, American co-worker has been transferred to cold, wet Manchester. Maybe he was a naughty boy and had gotten demoted? They all work for Computers Inc., and Jenny makes up her mind to befriend the new boy and make him feel at home. Not thinking of anything romantic, Jenny, who is a little more on the large side, is always willing to help and make people feel comfortable. When she invites Jonathan home to help with her decorating, she finds out he’s had a rather bleak past with no real Christmas. She sets about including him in all her Christmas traditions which soon lead to some rather erotic interludes. Jenny has ways of proving that Santa really does exist.
Hot and saucy, sizzling and sensuous, Victoria Blisse gives her readers more than mere warmth with this cold winters read. The pages fairly sizzle and spark with sexual tension and emotions are running high in this delightful romance. You won’t need a heater around while reading this, but maybe the ice bucket. Delightful characters grace this tale’s pages and the reader will smile while Jenny leads Jonathan through the strange new world of England he has been transferred to. This reviewer could relate very well, being from England herself and Ms. Blisse did a marvelous job with the interaction between Jonathan and Jenny. It’s also nice to see a plus size heroine get a hunky man for a change too. So, curl up on the sofa and enjoy the ride!!
4 Cups from Coffee Time Romance!
Jenny is hardly centerfold material, being plump and a little plain, but she is warm and funny. If only the right man notices her, he will find that outward appearances are just that.
Jonathan is an orphan from Texas. He always wanted to see England, so he jumped at the chance to transfer to the Manchester branch of his company. Even for an orphan, Christmas in a strange place is lonely, so the good looking computer technician is happy to have made a new friend in Jenny.
A young woman opens her home and her heart to a stranger. The two of them find out that the spirit of Santa Claus truly does exist, and so does true love.
This is a wonderfully sweet Christmas story with some really scorching love scenes. I just loved Jenny right from the beginning. A truly nice person, she really embodies the spirit of Christmas. Jonathan is smart enough to recognize what a jewel she is and learns to believe in love, despite a life without it so far. What a great way to warm up for the Christmas season!
