Just finished this novella by Jaci Burton, which is part of the bundle Holiday Seduction (the other story is by Lauren Dane, I haven't read that because I only bought Unwrapped). Unwrapped is a hot and fast read. After reading a Blaze novel it seems lacking of background information about the characters but maybe that's because Blaze novels are so elaborate in that department. Unwrapped is about a lot of hot sex and a bit of loving as well. Colleagues Justin and Amy want each other for years now and when they're on Hawaii to meet a client, Justin finally starts seducing Amy after he'd accidentally read an email from Amy in which she tells her friend her deepest sexual fantasy (a threesome that includes Justin). In Hawaii Amy slowly starts to loosen up and lets him seduce her. On the night of Christmas Eve she even lets the client Mitch take part of the seduction and they have a steamy, sexy threesome. After that Amy takes a run home and tries to avoid Justin, but he doesn't let her get away of course and confesses his love for her. And they live HEA.
Justin is not only hot (dark hair, long legs, muscled with a sixpack, whiskey eyes) but also sweet. Amy is harder to like, because of her sometimes icy behaviour. She's more concerned with their careers and less with his feelings. It's a good thing that he's so persistent. Because of Justin I rate this story with 3,5 stars, otherwise it would've been 3.
Back Blurb: He’s going to give her the Christmas gift of her dreams…in triplicate.
When Justin Garrett accidentally views Amy Parker’s private online journal, he sees the cold corporate exec in a brand new light. It seems the icy, unapproachable Amy has fantasies. Fantasies that both appall and intrigue her.
No one knows the real Amy Parker, and she’s satisfied to keep it that way. A woman with kinky tastes wouldn’t cut it in the straight-laced law firm where she’s fought her way to partnership. And she certainly refuses to let an underling use her to advance in the firm. Justin Garrett might be brilliant, gorgeous, and sexy as hell, but he’s firmly restricted to her fantasies and that’s where he’ll stay.
While working together on a corporate acquisition in Hawaii over the Christmas holidays, Justin sets out to make Amy’s secret fantasy come true—a night of passion with two men who adore her. And he knows the ideal other man to help Amy unwrap the perfect Christmas gift.
But first he has to melt her heart and convince her he sees her as a woman, not a rung to climb on the career ladder. In fact, by giving Amy exactly what she’s always wished for, Justin hopes to climb right into her heart.
Product Warnings: This title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, ménage a trois, a trip to Hawaii and maybe a glimpse of Santa on a surfboard.
