Bee Hobbes (aka Bianca Von Honey) has a successful career as a plus-size adult film star.
But when Bee is cast to star in a Christmas movie for the squeaky-clean Hope Channel, Bee is forced to keep her work as Bianca under wraps.
That’s easier said than done when she discovers her co-star is none other than childhood crush Nolan Shaw, an ex-boy band member in desperate need of career rehab.
But things heat up quickly in Christmas Notch, Vermont, when Nolan recognizes his new co-star from her ClosedDoors account.
Now Bee and Nolan are sneaking off for quickies on set, keeping their new relationship a secret from the Hope Channel’s execs.
But if Bee and Nolan can’t keep their off-camera romance behind the scenes, then this merry little meet cute might end up on the cutting room floor.
This was a cute and steamy romcom that I didn’t know I needed this holiday!!
It made my list of most anticipated Christmas romance books for 2022 and it did not disappoint.
Honestly, this book had me at plus-size adult film star! Plus, I couldn’t wait to see what this new writing duo had up its sleeve and let me tell you it’s divine and not to be missed.
If you’re looking for a holiday romcom that gives the perfect nod to Hallmark-esq Channel movies while also being a bit steamy and super sex-positive and body-positive then this is the romance for you.
I instantly fell for Bee who is one of those down-to-earth characters that has you smiling the entire time you’re reading about her. She’s someone I would just love to become friends with in real life. 😊
I love how her work as an adult film star was just something she loved and enjoyed. It wasn’t made into anything she was forced into nor was it a means for her to make any kind of statement and yet Murphy and Simone use her work to craft the best sex-positive message in this romance.
The juxtaposition of her current line of work to her new acting direction in this wholesome holiday movie was so perfect and really just fun.
I also loved all the side characters who followed her from the adult film world – many of whom had me laughing out loud.
Nolan was also such a fun and lovable character.
Though he had his own struggles pushing him to change his bad boy image and make his attempt at a renewed career, I liked how Murphy and Simone didn’t make his difficulties seem so heavy and drama-laden to weigh down the overall feel of this romcom.
I thoroughly enjoyed this romance and hope that there’s more to come from this duo!
I highly recommend this holiday read for its great writing, its great overall message and its pure fun.
