Advent Reads Day 6: Her Christmas Bonus by Rain Danvers

Synopsis: "New Adult Romance – A Sexy Contemporary Romance Novelette
Sage has been working at a high-tech firm in Newport Beach, CA for over two years as the only female director among three men. She is highly valued by her boss and she loves her job, but there's a problem - she's totally attracted to him and the stress is killing her. She's taking three days off for the Christmas holiday and has posted her availability online, hoping to find a job when she returns. Before she can leave, she has to find her cell phone and she doesn't know where she left it.

Terrance is the founder and owner of Templeton Designs and considers Sage so valuable to the company, he can't afford to acknowledge the feelings he has for her. He's stuck at the company this year when normally he would be enjoying the holiday in a warm, tropical location. It may be the year he finds a way to acknowledge the woman who holds his heart captive."

My Review: This was a quick, holiday story for your busy season. For me it felt a little rushed and forced. You really didn't get to know the characters all to well and I certainly wasn't rooting for them at all. I wasn't able to find the connection between them or between myself and the story. It was a good, light read, if you are looking for something to fill the time and enjoy but not become involved in, this is a great book.
My Rating: This was a quick read and would be good for lovers of the New Adult genre who are looking for some light reading this holiday season.  For me it just missed the mark. I give it a rating of Two Paws.


  1. What a disappointment. It sounded so good.

    1. I think if given the time to develop the book would have been much better. The characters didn't have time to ease into a relationship and I didn't have time to connect.
