The Christmas Fantasy
“Hey Mandy. Need to use the bathroom?” Jackson rubbed the back of his neck and looked toward the stairs as if he wanted to make his escape.
Mandy stepped away from the wall with her arms behind her back. “Not right now. Actually I need to use something else and you're the only one who can help me with it.”
“What’s that?” Jackson asked.
Mandy’s hands came up and she pushed against his chest. He stumbled back into the bathroom. Before Jackson could move, she closed the door, grabbed his glasses off his face and held them behind her as she leaned against the door.
“Amanda, stop with these games. I'm tired and want to go home. Give me my glasses back. What if someone needs wants to use the bathroom?”
She shrugged, unconcerned that he was upset. “So what? They'll see the room is occupied and go downstairs and use the other bathroom. We needed a moment of privacy.”
The suspicious look Jackson shot her way made her stomach jump, and not in that, I’m turned on a good way.
“In a bathroom during a party? What do you need help with that couldn’t wait until tomorrow?”
Her tongue poked out of her mouth and she took a deep breath. “It concerns my thirtieth birthday and my Christmas gift combined. I've decided the one thing I want this holiday is to lose my virginity. And I want to lose it to you.”
Mandy glanced back up at Jackson. The look on his face would've been comical if not for the sudden fluttering in her stomach. He stood there with his mouth literally hanging open and sat down on the toilet. He rubbed his face and moaned. Mandy was trying her best not to be too embarrassed. If he said no, she would never live it down.
“What…I…shit.” Jackson could barely get out one word let alone full sentences.
“What's wrong? You've got to be joking." Jackson glanced at Mandy. "Why me?"
"You're the only man I trust besides my brothers and father. You have to know I've cared about you for a very long time," she said softly, suddenly feeling very shy.
Jackson remained silent.
It’s now or never. She left his glasses on the sink and walked to stand in front of him. Before she lost all nerve, she moved her fingers through his hair. Jackson’s eyes fluttered.
“I think we need to stop thinking about the what ifs and just act. I'm sick of going over the consequences.
And I think you should also.” Before Jackson could argue, Mandy dropped down onto his lap, straddled him and gave him a deep kiss on the mouth.
Mandy didn't have a great deal of experience in kissing, but what she lacked, she made up for in enthusiasm.
The moment her lips met Jackson's, her nipples grew hard and poked against the bodice of her dress.
Jackson grunted and wrapped his arms around her. "Sweet," he murmured and brushed his tongue across her bottom lip.
"Huh?" Mandy nibbled the side of his mouth.
"You taste like strawberries and chocolate." He pulled her in close, giving her a kiss she'd always dreamt about.
Penelope's Romance Reviews
Anyhoo, my latest Christmas erotica is KT Grant's fun, sexy story The Christmas Fantasy. Grant does a great job creating a plus-size heroine (Mandy) who is struggling with her new identity. She has lost a huge amount of weight, but insecurities still linger. Jackson, the sexy firefighter she pines for, thinks she's gorgeous and desirable just the way she is. (I love you, Jackson!) Not only does he dispel her lingering doubts about her own sexiness, he is determined to forge an emotional bond between them. Mandy's self-doubts are spot on and totally believable for a woman coming to terms with her new body. Jackson is a fantastic hero...he's sexy, protective, he wears glasses (yee haw!) and he's a firefighter, for God's sake. Schwing! My favorite bits in the story are when Mandy dances around after her first encounter with Jackson (so cute!), and when Jackson realizes he's fallen in love with the heroine, and wants the whole enchilada with her, not just sex. That's my kind of hero, and my kind of erotica.
If only all of us could have a glasses-wearing, sexy firefighter hellbent on our sexual pleasure for a Christmas present. It would be a very, merry Christmas indeed. ☺☺☺

I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of The Christmas Fantasy from the author. I’m a huge fan and have read almost everything KT Grant has ever published. I really loved this story. I could so see where Mandy was coming from and was cheering her on from the very beginning. I loved that Jackson is a sexy fireman who wears glasses (I love a man in glasses). Let me just say that Mandy and Jackson together was super HOT! Jackson was even sexier when he stood up the Chris, Mandy’s brother, for how he treated Mandy’s best friend Jessica. Both Jessica and Mandy both had been overweight in the past and Chris is a total ass to Jessica when she tries to seduce him. Mandy does freak out for a bit, worrying that Jackson might see her the same way Chris sees Jessica, but her fears are soon put to rest. I loved Mandy’s and Jackson’s story and hope one day Jessica will get her own HEA.
Book Reading Gals
From the moment I learned about this book and saw the cover a couple of months ago I have been on pins and needles to read it. I just knew that I was going to love it, after all I am a sucker for a good Christmas story, and I knew that KT would not disappoint, and she doesn’t.
Mandy, I loved her, she decided to take control of her life and go after what she wanted most, and that was Jackson. Nothing and no one was going to stop her, except for maybe herself.
Jackson is a great hero, he has begun seeing Mandy not as a surrogate little sister but as the sexy woman that she is, the only thing standing in his way is his best friend, her older brother.
Can I just say that the sparks between these two will set your ereader a smokin, there is one scene that is well um I can’t really say because it will ruin the surprise but you will never look at a certain room the same again. The secondary characters are the ones that cause the most angst between these two, their best friends.
There was only one thing I didn’t like and that has more to do with personal preferences than the story line. I like my Christmas stories to end with a family scene especially if there has been a lot about the family in the story, and while this had a great ending it wasn’t the ending I was hoping for, but like I said that has to do more with personal preference than anything.
If you are looking for a great Christmas story with great characters and some smokin hot scenes then pick this book up.
