Recipe for a super sizzling Christmas:

Mix together the following:

—one woman determined to heat up the holidays with a hunky new date

—a sexy suave millionaire

—an even sexier old friend, just to spice things up

Garnish with a sultry kiss under the mistletoe and watch all sexy hell break loose!

Alyssa Chambers has visions of sweet temptation dancing in her head. Should she choose the hot playboy who can give her everything she's ever wanted? Or indulge in some holiday cheer with her good friend Christopher Hyde, a man who's turning out to be everything she's ever wanted?

Once she shares some amazing holiday, ah, spirit with Chris, the choice becomes even harder. How can she risk their longtime friendship—even for the best sex of her life?

Ever had exactly what you wanted and didn’t know it? Ever fear risking the one thing you desire most because of a goofy self-imposed rule? Then you should read Starstruck by Julie Kenner.

Now beyond the fact that the cover for this book is downright yummy, Julie Kenner writes a fun novel. Her characters come to life from page one and have you hooked until the very end. You’ll think about Alyssa and Chris in your sleep. I did.

What I like the best about this story is that Alyssa and Chris (mostly Chris) never give up on their dreams. She wants a connection with Rich in order to win his favor and his business. Ah, but when she thinks there is a deeper connection, she finds herself torn. Rich is hot, but so-so. She doesn’t sizzle.

Then there’s Chris. He’s irresistible. He’s got the best of all worlds: he’s handsome, devoted, and totally in love with Alyssa. How sexy!

Some stories feel overwritten—you know how it’ll end. Though this story can fall into that trap in spots, the heat boiling between Alyssa and Chris, especially with the holiday flair will keep you enthralled until the last page.

If you want a sexy read for those cool winter nights, then you need to read Starstruck. I give this book 4 books.
