December is the time for romance, twinkling lights, and roaring fires in the fireplace. It’s also time for the annual Holiday Fantasy Lingerie show. This year, the show has a masculine twist with the introduction of male models who were once soldiers.
Joshua Scott Brown has made quite a name for himself as a male fitness model since he got out of the Air Force. But nothing prepares him for the media circus that occurs after he catches one of the female lingerie models during the live show, preventing her from a ten foot fall. Now the lingerie company wants to turn that media coverage into holiday profit by pairing him up romantically with the model. Unfortunately, he only has eyes for Autumn Layne, the publicist who keeps pushing him into another woman’s arms.
My only complaint about Joshua is that it was short and sweet. Well, the short part, not the sweet part. My first thought when I started reading this last installment in Christi Snow’s Male Model Chronicles series was how absolutely adorable Joshua was. He was funny, sweet and not exactly comfortable in a room full of half-naked women. He was also totally infatuated with Autumn from the first moment he saw her.
Autumn was strong, hard working and deserved far more credit for everything she did than she received. She was crazy about Joshua but was determined not to rock the boat with her sister because of misplaced guilt. I admired her for her loyalty almost as much as I disliked her sister.
As is this author’s style, she didn’t make things easy for this couple. There was danger, a little bit of mystery, plenty of heat and a meddling overbearing relative thrown into the mix. I’ve almost forgiven said author for all she put these two through, almost. 😉
