Our bookseller says:
“A former popstar bad boy with a heart of gold and a fat porn star with loads of spunk fall in love (and get down and dirty) on the set of a squeaky-clean Hope Channel (think Hallmark) Christmas movie. 1/2 of our narrators, Bee, is unapologetic about her career as a porn star and her childhood obsession with Nolan Shaw, bad boy of boy band Ink. She loves sex and she loves her body and she knows what she deserves. The other 1/2, Nolan, is trying to reform his bad boy rep so he can financially support his family. Not only do the authors make you root for the couple, they also make you root for every side character (side note: pretty much every character in this book is queer, a win for all of us queer lovers of steamy holiday tales). Additionally, the authors are frank about the realities of the sex work industry and the pitfalls of fame without ever dulling the story’s cheerful sparkle. This Hanukkah enthusiast gives a Merry Little Meet Cute 5 Santa Hats (and an extra spicy pepper)!”
Bee Hobbes (aka Bianca Von Honey) has a successful career as a plus-size adult film star. With a huge following and two supportive moms, Bee couldn’t ask for more. But when Bee’s favorite producer asks her to star in a Christmas movie he’s making for the squeaky-clean Hope Channel, Bee’s career is about to take a more family-friendly direction.
Forced to keep her work as Bianca under wraps, Bee quickly learns this is a task a lot easier said than done. Though it all becomes worth it 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. Nolan’s promised his bulldog manager to keep it zipped up on set, and he will if it means providing a more stable living situation for his sister and mom.
But things heat up quickly in Christmas Notch, Vermont, when Nolan recognizes his new co-star from her ClosedDoors account (oh yeah, he’s a member). Now Bee and Nolan are sneaking off for quickies on set, keeping their new relationship a secret from the Hope Channel’s execs. Things only get trickier when the reporter who torpedoed Nolan’s singing career comes snooping around—and takes an instant interest in mysterious newcomer Bee.
Can Bee and Nolan keep their off-camera romance behind the scenes, or will they lose it all?
