Naughty List: A Steamy Holiday Romance Novella

When Joanie loses her job, she’s invited to her best friend Mia’s small mountain town for its newly revived winter festival. Since her last vacation involved a Hawaiian threesome, cocoa and carols in the middle of nowhere sounds a little too Hallmark for Joanie’s tastes … until she meets the smoking hot Greg, a friend of Mia’s fiancé. Determined to spice up the festivities and ready for a holiday fling, Joanie sets her sights on Greg. Will a tryst with a hot mountain man simply scratch Joanie’s itch for something wild or will it tempt this flighty city girl into wanting more?

Naughty List by Melanie A. Smith is a sexy Hallmark Christmas movie-style but much, much dirtier city-lawyer-meets-her-mountain-man romance. Joanie literally starts this one off with a (story about her most recent) bang, and once she meets Greg it’s a non-stop romp through icy cold holiday traditions and red hot encounters between the two.

Though I really enjoyed this sexy holiday-themed novella, my favorite part might have been the note at the end that said their story would continue in a full-length book in 2023! 😉

Rating: 4 stars / A-
