Mistletoe Mistake (Christmas in the City Book 1) Kindle Edition
Gemma's a successful architect in London, but her personal life has been a mess since her engagement ended in a very public disaster. She throws herself into work until a chance meeting with an aloof and dominating billionaire at a Christmas party awakens a side of her she never knew she had, a side that wants to let someone else take control for a while.
Cole's got his own painful past relationship which is the reason all his bedroom encounters come with strictly defined terms, not to mention the reason that he hates Christmas. He's not looking for a change, but Gemma's unusual mix of confidence and submission leaves him wanting more.
The two strike a deal to satisfy their mutual attraction, but will their sparks in the bedroom give new warmth to the rest of their lives as well, or is their relationship destined to bloom only for the holidays, just like the mistletoe?
This book contains explicit sexual scenes with mild BDSM elements, including bondage, impact, roleplay, sensation play and breath play.

If variety is the spice of life, this story goes really big on the spice. Who would have thunk grumpy Cole had such creative and uninhibited ideas to act out? Once he and Gemma decided the “just for fun” boundaries of their short time together, they spent quite a bit of quality time together.
The writing in the book is top notch. You’ll want to hang on every word in the steamy encounters, and keep turning the pages for those exciting plot twists. MISTLETOE MISTAKE really stands out in the Holiday Romance category.
Gemma and Cole are both coming off of pretty crappy relationships. Gemma’s is much more fresh and is still taking place in her social circle as well as a pretty healthy dose of public humiliation, which just sucks. Even with that though she is determined too enjoy her first Christmas season alone. Cole on the other hand had a bad relationship and instead of allowing himself to be ever be vulnerable to another woman the only relationships he has are the ones that are “business arrangements”, enter in their meet cute.
This book is a lot more spicy than I thought it was going to be. But not in a bad way. I like how the author kind of takes you on a little tour of London at Christmas. I like the relationship dynamics between Gemma and Cole once they decide to have a friends with benefit arrangement. They have fantastic chemistry, but they also just really compliment each other in a way I don’t think either one of them was expecting. Because each one of their dates includes a night out or Christmas activity it keeps the book from being just spice all the time. There isn’t much of an underlying plot point (so don’t look for a mystery or something here), but there are a few minor moments of ex drama, but mostly it’s just a really enjoyable story of how two people came together at Christmas. It was just an enjoyable read. Would read more by the author in the future.
Gemma is the owner of her own company and is late for the annual Christmas party. She hints at a bad year but good for business. Her friend Holly is so definitely wilder than she is.
Cole and Jackson are in the same hotel their companies partly own for a Christmas party and looking for a decent designer in London.
Gemma has an interesting first encounter with Cole and Jackson, but I love their banter. Cole makes a slight mistake with Gemma, misunderstanding the situation and hoping it works out as their chemistry is smoking hot. Unfortunately, it doesn't, and now he is so determined to find out who she is. This should be interesting.
It seems work affiliations bring them back together in a business manner. I like how the authors offer us both characters' perspectives. This book is very holiday-themed, even if the businesses aren't. This book is also very steamy. I enjoy how the characters get to know each other in and out of the bedroom. The change of heart is very subtle but definitely a whirlwind timeline. I truly enjoyed Gemma and Cole's romance.
I loved the characters, I loved the plot, and I love this authors writing. It was extremely mature. At moments when I feared the miscommunication troupe, I was pleasantly surprised to see they figured it out as adults. It was a breath of fresh air.
I’m giving it 4.5 out of 5, only because towards the end it was almost too much sexy time, and I wished for more character development. It lacked in getting to know each character deeply.
But overall I’m not disappointed!! Definitely recommend:)
