Matzoh and Mistletoe
Carina Press / November 21, 2013 / $2.99 digital
Every December twenty-fifth, Rebeccah Rickman volunteers through her synagogue so that others can celebrate Christmas. Her usual mitzvah, or good deed, is assisting police officer Jeremy Kohler. But this year is different: this year, Becca is free to act on the attraction that has long simmered between her and the sexy cop.
Jeremy couldn't have asked for a better gift than discovering the woman he's fantasized about for five long years is single. But when he learns about the violence that broke up Becca's marriage, he's hesitant to pursue her. He fears his desires will scare her away—but can't deny his own need for control in the bedroom. Or his longing to instruct her in the fine art of submission…
Becca is shocked to learn that Jeremy is a sexual dominant. And despite her past, she's also aroused. But before she can explore what that means, she's going to have to put her trust in Jeremy—and her own fledgling desires.
While the title of Jodie Griffin’s BDSM-themed novella suggests that the main conflict between the Jewish heroine and Christian hero relates to religion and culture, a better description of the main plot would be Vanilla Meets Kinky. Vanilla being Rebeccah (Becca) Rickman, a nice divorced Jewish girl who volunteers every Christmas to help the local police department on ride-alongs. If it happens to give her the opportunity to be in close confines with the very hot, not-Jewish at all Jeremy Kohler, all the better.
