Jake and Jason are identical twins who’ve known for a long time that there would only be one woman for the both of them. One who loved each of them equally and could handle both the pros and cons of being shared by two men on a daily basis. As soon as they laid eyes on the beautiful new file clerk Gloria they knew deep in their heart that she was the one meant to be theirs. They thought their only obstacle was to convince her that their feelings were genuine. Quickly they learn they’re mistaken when they find out the lovely Gloria’s been keeping a major secret. One that not only jeopardizes the future they planned to share with her, but also places her very life in danger.
Gloria found it hard not to have a positive outlook when she got to see the delicious Jason and delectable Jake every day. On top of that the merriment of the season all around her was infectious. It was the first Christmas in a long time that Gloria was actually looking forward to. That is until she learns the mistakes of her past, ones she tried very hard to put behind her and bury, were now back. Back with a vengeance and determined to destroy her. Now all she hoped for Christmas was that the people she’d grown to love wouldn’t get caught in the crossfire.
This holiday season is looking a whole lot merrier for Gloria and the sexy twin officers who've been tailing her for the last six months. After spending three years in hell with her psycho ex-boyfriend, Gloria has decided it's time to let go of the past and embrace her new identity and future, starting with finding out just how serious the flirtatious Jake and Jason are.
Their plan was simple. A slow seduction of the mind before a complete and total claiming of her body. They just needed her to love them separately first before approaching her with the idea of forever with the two of them. Jake and Jason have known that there would only be one woman for them and all signals point to Gloria being the one.
Before any of them can finalize their holiday plans, a maniac from Gloria's past comes back to silence her for good.
Deck the Halls is a short and erotically sweet story with just enough lustiness to satisfy without being overwhelming. I was surprised at how the moments of intimacy between the characters unfolded and Ms. Thomas definitely knows how to write them. However, I would have enjoyed this story that much more had there been additionaly length to the story, which would have further developed the characters, their relationship, and the plotline. Nevertheless, I have a newfound appreciation for men-in-uniform and perhaps more importantly what can be done with one (or two) in a file room.
Erotic romance fans will definitely get into the holiday spirit just a tad early this year after reading this story.
