Summary
Cowritten by #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Murphy and USA Today bestselling author Sierra Simone--a steamy plus-size holiday rom-com about an adult film star who is semi-accidentally cast as a lead in a family-friendly Christmas movie, and the former bad-boy pop star she falls in love with.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Bee Hobbes is a very successful adult-film star, appearing as Bianca von Honey. But now Bee wants to take her career in a different direction. Playing Felicity in Duke the Falls, a wholesome holiday romance in production for the Hope Channel, will provide that opportunity as long as no one connects the professional dots between Bianca and Bee. But Bee's new path takes an unexpected detour when she meets her costar, Nolan Shaw. As the sexy member of the once-famous boy band INK, Nolan provided plenty of fodder for Bee's own sexual fantasies; what is more problematic, though, is that Bee thinks that she may have starred in a few of Nolan's fantasies too--as Bianca. The sex in this very flirty, a little dirty, and very, very funny first collaboration by best-selling Murphy and Simone is hot enough to melt snow, but the coauthors also deftly incorporate a rich layer of sweetly satisfying emotional connectivity between the protagonists. With plenty of cheeky charm and a cast of superbly nuanced characters, this brilliantly executed rom-com both cleverly skewers and unabashedly celebrates the appeal of squeaky-clean holiday romances, while also championing body positivity in life and love."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Murphy (If the Shoe Fits) and Simone (A Lesson in Thorns) take readers on a bumpy but enjoyable ride in this playful holiday romp. Notorious former boy band star Nolan Shaw is on a mission to rehabilitate his playboy image by starring in a wholesome family Christmas movie. Though he's determined to remain as "pure as driven snow" throughout production, this proves difficult when the producer unknowingly casts Nolan's favorite porn star, Bianca von Honey (real name Bee Hobbes), as the leading lady. Hardly anyone else on set knows of Bee's other profession, and though she's proud of her career as a plus-sized sex worker, Bee knows it would be catastrophic if her secret leaked to the conservative streaming service producing the movie. As chemistry ignites between Bee and Nolan both on- and off-screen, however, it becomes impossible for them to resist each other. There's a lot of promise to this amusing premise and the authors admirably touch on many feminist themes, but Bee and Nolan's narrative voices are virtually indistinguishable, and the romance itself remains disappointingly surface level. Readers wanting romance with substance should look elsewhere, but for cheery holiday fluff this works just fine. Agent: John Cusick, Folio Literary Management. (Sept.)"
