Publisher's Summary

Books and More owner Nina Foster doesn't believe in love anymore. Twice, men have crushed her heart. Now, she's resigned herself to making hot chocolate and baking cookies for the customers who enter her store. She won't risk her heart again.
Blake Massie hides away from the world, nursing his scars. He sees himself as a monster that no one could ever love. A self-imposed recluse, he won't allow himself to open up, afraid of being burned like his fire-ravaged skin.
Unable to reach out in person, the pair communicates via the Internet and hot, erotic fantasies. Night after night, they explore their growing passion with only a blindfold to protect their secrets. As Christmas approaches, Blake must share his pain if he is to ease hers, but doing so could drive her away forever. Can they take a chance and follow their deepest soul dreams, or will their fragile hearts continue to hide from the world and one another?

Good First For Holt - Great Performance By Carlie

Nina Foster owns a small bookstore in town. Despite this book being set in the digital age, she has a thriving business that she loves.

We quickly learn that there is one customer that she has never seen and only speaks to you via text. He is everything that she wants, but whenever she, timidly, asks a personal question, she is almost instantaneously shut down by him.

Blake is this mystery man. He buys books that are not in her bookstore. Books that she will order for him and personally deliver...to his butler.

The flirting between them becomes something more serious. However, Blake is resistant to reveal his whole self. He's insecure yet demanding. How far and how much is Nina willing to share without those feelings reciprocated?

Carlie McKinsey is a talented narrator and pulled me into the story that I was not sure about. The energy that she put into her performance kept me listening.

Desiree Holt started with a great story that kind of lost its way, it strayed off. Some situations were unbelievable. For example, the town is pretty small, but Nina was never told who, how or why Blake became the recluse he was....

My recommendation; accept the misgivings and grab it on sale or purchase outright. I'm keeping an eye out or Miss Holt's next book.

Overall I give this book 3.5 stars, performance 4 stars & Story 3.5 stars.
