Don't you want a man for Xmas?
MERRY BOOKMAS Reading Ninjas,
How's your Xmas reading going? Is everyone off work (like me for the first time ever)? Or are you being 'essential' and keeping the world running? No matter your Xmas/New Year plans, I know you'll all enjoy this quickie stocking stuffer that was just released this week...
A MAN FOR THE HOLIDAYS - by J.O. Mantel
I really loved it. Now I know that there will surely be comments/complaints about it being similar to Mannequin or Life Size - movies from years ago. But although familiar, I really loved J.O's take on the tale. As with all great J.O. books, it's MM, tongue in cheek funny, and equal parts sweet and steamy.
It's quick and easy to read - perfect for a Xmas eve time out before your chosen chaos commences. You'll fall in love with Quinn - he's a sweety with so much to give the right man... And it'll take the right man to make it happen - believe me. I promise not to judge you if you happen to cry just a little. I can neither confirm nor deny that I did - only J.O. knows for sure. Treat yourself to the perfect man this Xmas ninjas, because let's be honest - who doesn't want Santa to bring them their dream man? I know I do; and dammit Santa, I've asked every year for the last 27 - get your shit together!
Spencer always regarded himself as a hopeless romantic. A boring, pathetic loser who gave up on dating and finding love. For the past ten years, it’s just been him and his best friend, Paige.
Aside from the ‘loser’ status, Spencer also has an obsession. An obsession that would seem crazy, stupid, and even idiotic to everyone else, you know, all the ‘normal’ people. For Spencer though, this obsession is anything but normal, and he knows it.
Day after day he spends his time in a men's clothing store, obsessing over Quinn. Quinn is a handsome, mysterious, and spectacular creation who Spencer knows absolutely nothing about, but finds himself extremely attracted to the guy.
There’s just one problem––Quinn is a mannequin.
All Spencer wants is a man. Someone to be with, shop with, sleep with, fall in love with, even if it’s just for the holidays. All he wants … is Quinn.
What he wasn’t expecting, however, was to find Quinn, the mannequin he’s been obsessing over, standing at his front door at midnight, two weeks before Christmas … as a real-life human being.
Is Quinn staying just for the holidays? Or will he and Spencer find their Happily Ever After that will last an eternity?
