A feast she wasn’t expecting!
Clover Greene would sooner crawl into her oven than host family for Thanksgiving dinner. Yet another annual ritual of too much food, served with a side of criticism over “Clover’s Bad Life Choices.” This year, she needs to distract them all with a handsome fake boyfriend. And she has the perfect guy in mind.
Contractor Erick Fields is the poster boy for sexy single dads, and Clover has been secretly crushing on him for ages. She certainly wasn’t expecting Erick to agree to her insane charade or to add lots of hot, wicked sex to the deal. If they can pull it off, the worst Thanksgiving ever might give them something to be really thankful for!

A Thanksgiving feast
Yay for more festive romance from Blaze – although to be honest this is strictly a Thanksgiving tale rather than anything Christmassy. Not to worry – it’s still a solid story for a cold, wintery night.
I recently read Tiffany Reisz’s earlier Blaze (Her Halloween Treat) and it’s clear from both books that she has a knack for writing sexy, outdoorsy men who are a little rough around the edges with beards and muscles to spare. And who have dirty mouths and wicked senses of humour. My new ideal man!
The beauty of this tale, other than the wicked hot sex, is definitely the banter between the characters. I honestly thought I’d be put off by the fact that Erick is a single dad – it just adds a different dynamic to what’s billed as a sexy story. But it actually adds something extra to the story and Ruthie is hilarious – a typical sassy teen whose relationship with both Erick and Clover is fabulous.
Erick and Clover are a great pair – different and yet so right for each other. They have chemistry and, as I said before, the banter that is wonderful to read. What I liked is that the tale took a ‘fake boyfriend’ trope (which I admit that I love) and turned it quickly on its head to make it even better.
If I had one tiny gripe about this book it would be that the Thanksgiving showdown went on a teeny bit too long, for my liking. It became unrealistic. Satisfying, but unrealistic.
This book is the perfect read for anyone who likes a holiday romance tale from Blaze. It’s humorous, sexy and with enough romance to keep you smiling. It wasn’t perfect but I’m feeling generous with the season and giving it 5 stars.
