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!

4.5 "Spankgiving" Stars!
I bet that headline got your curiosity going. Since this is a review of a Tiffany Reisz title, the queen of BDSM (ah Soren and Nora, how I miss you so), I thought I should clarify that while this book is definitely sexy, it has nothing to do with BDSM like her extremely popular Original Sinners series. It will nonetheless feature quite the Thanksgiving spanking. Let your minds run wild with what that could possibly mean. This is a Tiffany Reisz title after all, one of the most clever and gifted writers, I have ever read.
HER NAUGHTY HOLIDAY is the 2nd book in Tiffany Reisz's Men At Work series. While there are some reoccurring themes in the books in this series, primarily the setting in a remote part of Oregon, and the fact that the heroes in both of the first two books are contractors (thus the Men At Work series title), each could easily be read as a standalone. Nonetheless if you haven't yet had a chance to read book 1 (Her Halloween Treat), I highly recommend that you do.
Clover Greene is a self-made business woman, much to her family's chagrin. Notwithstanding having dropped out of college, she founded and owns a very successful nursery that is valued in the seven figures. Nonetheless, all her family can focus on is that at thirty she is still unmarried and childless. Never mind that her family still "affectionately" refers to her as their "Little Dropout." So imagine Clover's anxiety when she finds out that her entire family is coming to her home for a visit during Thanksgiving.
One person who holds Clover in high esteem is her 17-year old employee, Ruthie. Clover also thinks the world of Ruthie, so when one thing leads to another and Clover asks Ruthie's single father (Erick) to play her pretend boyfriend for Thanksgiving (while Ruthie is out of town), Clover begins to worry how Ruthie will take the news--especially when things get pretty heated as Erick and Clover decide to "practice" acting like they are a couple in an attempt to deliver a convincing performance.
Will the performance lead to a real HEA? How will Ruthie take the news? Moreover, can Erick help Clover pull off the impossible: a civil holiday meal get together with a notoriously uncivil family?
Enjoyable as always and complex in nature, Ms. Reisz never disappoints and HER NAUGHTY HOLIDAY is no different. Both from a passion perspective and the interrelationships between and among this diverse cast, Ms Reisz managed to hold my attention throughout. If you're looking for a good romance to warm up your Thanksgiving, put a smile on your face, and warm your heart, HER NAUGHTY HOLIDAY is a sure bet.
