Meg Trainor is having fantasies of being dominated, not by one but two men. She longs to submit in the bedroom and she’s more than willing to accept punishment if she misbehaves. However, she doesn’t expect to find what she’s looking for any time soon, preferring to work in the library rather than letting someone get close enough to hurt her again. Even so, she never expected to be working on Christmas Eve. She knows there won’t be any customers but she promised her boss she’d help out and she’d do anything to get away from her best friend Lisa’s attempts at getting her laid – she’ll find her own fun, thank you very much.

Meg was prepared to spend the day writing down her Christmas wishes in her beloved journal but her plans went right out the window just as Brad Griffin walked in the door. It seems that as she was engrossed in her fantasies, a storm had set in and swept the men of her dreams straight into her life. Brad was passing on his way to a toy show with his brother Shane when their car broke down. What with the storm, none of them are going anywhere anytime soon. It seems that maybe this year, Santa finally thinks Meg’s been a good enough girl to get what she wants.

Mistletoe Studs delves into the world of BDSM with sweltering results. It is obvious from the moment they meet that Meg and Brad have serious chemistry so it’s only a matter of time before they act on it. Meg is new to this but her body is on fire at the thought of Brad and Shane; both men treat her with a great deal of care and affection. Throughout the story, the perspective switches between characters and after a while it is apparent that Meg and Brad are thinking the exact same thing; that they want something more than a one-time deal. Shane is happy to go along with fulfilling Meg’s fantasies and there are some very erotic ménage scenes. However, I feel that Shane’s story is still to come. The author successfully builds the tension and frustration at wanting to see these characters happy.

Thanks for the wonderful review, Rose. Shane's story has been contracted. Look for One Tasty Night late summer!
