Review: Checking It Twice by Jodi Redford

Checking It Twice by Jodi Redford
Synopsis (Goodreads):
’Tis the season for double seduction.

The only item on Jana Colton’s Christmas list this year is Kevin Monahan. Preferably naked in her bed. The delicious, hunky chef has been resisting her forever, but she’s pulling out all the sexy stops this holiday. Especially since his acceptance of an out-of-state job threatens to nix her quest to rock his boxers off.

Jana has always been Kevin’s personal Kryptonite, but giving in to her isn’t an option. Relationships are a four-letter word in his book. He cares far too much for Jana to let his emotional baggage ultimately break her heart.

With the arrival of his best friend, Nick Pappas, the balance of temptation shifts. From their past history of sharing women, Nick knows every dirty trick it takes to lead Kevin astray, and he’s not afraid to use them. Particularly since Nick’s convinced that Jana is exactly what Kevin needs to be happy and whole.

Their game of seduction quickly snowballs into something that feels an awful lot like love—in triplicate. But with Kevin dead set on leaving Michigan, there’s a real possibility it could be a blue Christmas for them all.

Warning: This book contains an extremely tormented voyeur, a very naughty and not so saintly Nick, a liberal application of candy cane-flavored body paint, a buzzing butterfly, and enough raunchy fun on a sex swing to melt a snowman…or two.
My Thoughts: Holy shoot balls! Can Jodi Redford write the sexy or can Jodi Redford write the sexy??? Seriously, guys, whenever the clothes start dropping, the heat index skyrockets! Also, that warning? Entirely accurate!

I really enjoyed watching Nick and Jana unravel Kevin's fears. Nick fights dirty but it's the delicious kind of dirty that ends up with everyone sweaty and happy at the end. Jana usually gets to end a couple of times, if you know what I mean. You really can't think badly of a Nick, though. He's such a giver. I mean, he gives and gives and then he sits back and watches Kev give a little and then he steps in to give a little more. He's a very generous individual.

I loved seeing how Ry, Bram and Lacey are getting along a year into their triad. I loved that we got to see their families accepting of their relationships. I loved the "liberal application of candy cane-flavored body paint". Hee! Those boys and their toys. They certainly know how to use them.

All in all, this was a fun-filled holiday blast that was hot enough to keep the snowpocalypse at bay. Keep the ice handy because Jodi Redford might just melt your panties!

  1. I love givers. I may have to check out these holiday inspired panty melters

    1. YES! Do it! Jodi Redford knows how to bring the sex-ay for the holidays!

  2. Jodi *might* melt our panties? I thought that was pretty much a given with Jodi. Jodi Redford is synonymous with melting panties.

    1. Well, maybe someone's wearing fire retardant underwear. IT COULD HAPPEN!

    2. Seems like the best course of action while reading a Jodi Redford book is to just avoid wearing panties.

    3. I can find no fault in this comment. #VivaThePantylessRevolution!

  3. I've heard you say ONLY GOOD THINGS about Jodi Redford. Just because of that, I think I might have to check her out sooner, rather than later. AND I love a good holiday read! It's a big win!

    1. Jodi Redford kills me with her books. I love them to pieces! *flails*

  4. I am guessing this is good since you start with Holy Shoot Balls :) Though I am thinking that statement would make a guy wince LOL

    Oh I may have to squeeze this one in over the holidays :)

    1. According to Amanda, you should not wear panties while reading it. Or any Jodi Redford book, really. #VivaThePantylessRevolution!
