Genre: Romantic Comedy Release Date: December 10, 2019
He’s the world’s most alpha Marine and the last man I
should be letting jingle my bells this holiday season. So why does Clint O’Dell keep running through my thoughts wearing nothing but a
Santa hat? And why do I stupidly agree that we should be Christmas friends with
benefits?Someone must have spiked my eggnog.
I don’t do Marines.
I learned my lesson about both the hard way.
But when Clint steps in to rescue me—from a murderous goose, a rogue reindeer,
and the ghost of Christmas Right Now causing trouble in my bakery—I can’t help
but wonder if we’re meant to be more than friends.
If maybe Clint is the holiday miracle I’ve been praying for…or if all the magic
will disappear with the season.
Humbugged is a laugh out loud holiday romp featuring a Marine with a
heart of gold and a baker in need of a hero. Complete with the world’s most
awkward Christmas caroling, a photoshoot with furry friends, and more naughty
baked goods than is good or decent.
Pippa Grant is a USA Today Bestselling author who writes
romantic comedies that will make tears run down your leg. When she’s not
reading, writing or sleeping, she’s being crowned employee of the month as a
stay-at-home mom and housewife trying to prepare her adorable demon spawn to be
productive members of society, all the while fantasizing about long walks on
the beach with hot chocolate chip cookies.
Lili Valente has slept under the stars in Greece, eaten
dinner at midnight with French men who couldn’t be trusted to keep their mouths
on their food, and walked alone through Munich’s red light district after dark
and lived to tell the tale.
These days you can find her writing in a tent beside the sea, drinking coconut
water and thinking delightfully dirty thoughts.
Humbugged by Pippa Grant and Lili Valente takes us back to Happy Cat and gives us Clint and Noelle’s story. Though this is a part of a series, it can be read as a standalone, however, you get so much by reading them in order. I laughed and swooned and then laughed some more. Such a sweet, fun and delightful read!
Noelle moved to Happy Cat to have a fresh start. She has a plan and that plan does not include the sexy, younger and very charming Marine. She knows what is means to be a part of a military family. Clint loves his job. It is his calling. That and his family is what matter most to him. Then Noelle enters his life and he can’t stop thinking about her. But as he continuously saves her from the local animals, including a goose with a mission, a reindeer and more, they begin to spend time together and can’t deny what they feel. But do they have a future together?
Humbubbed by Pippa Grant and Lili Valente was such a fun read. As with all the books in the series, the characters are a hoot and their journey will have you laughing out loud.
