Release Blitz: The Naught List by Caisey Quinn

Title: The Naughty List
Author: Caisey Quinn
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Holiday Romance
Release Date: December 10, 2019


HOLLIS ROSSI is tired of being good. What's it ever gotten her, anyway?

When her boss, the infamous and illusive Jonah X, passes her up for a promotion because she's "too wholesome" to handle being his personal assistant, she sets out on a mission to prove him wrong.

Her naughty list contains everything she plans to do to show him she's not the innocent, naive girl he thinks she is. She just  didn't plan on him finding it. 

As Jonah shows her the ropes of being bad, she can't help but wish he'd show her some other ropes--like the ones in his bedroom. 

The Naughty List is a steamy contemporary holiday romance.

Review by Jen Skewes

I adored this novella. It is a quick, steamy read that just makes you smile.  It has just the right amount of emotional moments and two characters that you will love.

Hollis went for an interview working for the elusive Jonah X.  She didn't get the job she wanted but somehow found herself as his dog walker for the past two years.  Jonah is looking for a new assistant and Hollis wants the job.  He has his reasons form not promoting her, on being that she is too wholesome to be his assistant, both personal and business.  She is determined to prove him wrong.  She is ready to take on any task that he throws her way, no matter what it is.  Even if it means checking off all of the items on the naughty list that her sister in law made for her.  She is ready to prove herself to him.

Jonah is an ex UFC fighter who has a past that he has managed to keep quiet.  He is a sexy,  sweet and kind man who has a vulnerable side as well.  His past has led him to be guarded, not opening up to any one.  He is content with one night stands and spending all his time running his business.  When Hollis Rossi comes in for an interview, he knows that hiring her is way too tempting for him, but he also doesn't want to let her go, hence how she became his dog walker.  But after two years she wants more, and he isn't so sure promoting her would work.  It would mean working with her every day and given the way he rects when in a room with her, it's not the best idea.  Hollis is not about to give up.  Will he give her a chance and will the both of them be able to stay behind that line that certainly needs to be created?

I adored these two. Jonah may be this tough ex UFC fighter with a body covered in tattoos, but he is os much more than that.  His kindness knows no bounds, but I can also say the same for Hollis.  She is beautiful, sweet and always going the extra mile, especially when it comes to Jonah.  I think t is just in her nature to take care of people, and Jonah is someone who needs that whether he can admit it or not.  It is something that has been lacking in his life.

They had such amazing chemistry both on a physical and emotion level.  Their playful banter had me smiling.  They just fit perfectly together and I was rooting for them so much.  I loved seeing Jonah open up to her in ways that he never does with anyone else, and I loved how much she would be there for him.  This is one of those books to read when you just want to cuddle up on the couch with a good book, one that is not over the top drama or angst, but just a really good story with two loving characters.  I loved it!!!
