Description
’Tis the season for double seduction.

The only item on Jana Colton’s Christmas list this year is Kevin Monahan. Preferably naked in her bed. The delicious, hunky chef has been resisting her forever, but she’s pulling out all the sexy stops this holiday. Especially since his acceptance of an out-of-state job threatens to nix her quest to rock his boxers off.

Jana has always been Kevin’s personal Kryptonite, but giving in to her isn’t an option. Relationships are a four-letter word in his book. He cares far too much for Jana to let his emotional baggage ultimately break her heart.

With the arrival of his best friend, Nick Pappas, the balance of temptation shifts. From their past history of sharing women, Nick knows every dirty trick it takes to lead Kevin astray, and he’s not afraid to use them. Particularly since Nick’s convinced that Jana is exactly what Kevin needs to be happy and whole.

Their game of seduction quickly snowballs into something that feels an awful lot like love—in triplicate. But with Kevin dead set on leaving Michigan, there’s a real possibility it could be a blue Christmas for them all.
Product Warnings
This book contains an extremely tormented voyeur, a very naughty and not so saintly Nick, a liberal application of candy cane-flavored body paint, a buzzing butterfly, and enough raunchy fun on a sex swing to melt a snowman…or two.

Checking it twice is by far the best book Jodi has written. The fact that she has so well plunged into her main characters psyche really makes this book a masterpiece in its own. It shows well the torturous past of one of the main characters (leaving you the surprise to discover which one) as well as the steamy hot relationship that the three main characters are living through this enticing, erotic, spell binding and oh so sexy book. I really recommend that you not only check, but read this book on numerous occasions, because I promise that it will get in your heart and soul on the deepest level.

And as commonly happens, if you hear it enough, you start to believe it. Well Kevin believes with every fiber of his being that his sexual proclivities are born of evil and that indulging in them with someone he cares about would be punishment toward that person. Consequently, he walked away from a budding relationship several years ago and has since never allowed anyone to get close enough to repeat the mistake. At least a mistake in his mind. But his intense attraction to Jana is making it increasingly difficult to deny her; especially when she turns on the seduction act. So he does what he does best … plans to make a clean break and start over. ~~~ Jana is hopelessly, madly in love with Kev and has been for some time. She has pulled out all of the stops to entice him into her bed and hopefully more in the way of a relationship, but so far nothing has worked. She knows her window is closing, but she also knows that she affects Kev as much as he does her. What can a girl do except keep trying? But despite her hopeless infatuation with Kev, Jana also has a guilty pleasure named Nick. Her weekly calls to Nick are beyond exciting. Even not knowing what the rep who supplies her store with all sort of goodies looks like doesn’t stop her from fantasizing about him. And it isn’t long before she is fantasizing about having them both following an unexpected visit from Nick. ~~~ Nick has come to town for a couple of reasons. To meet Jana who has been the object of his deepest desires for over a year. And to reconnect with his best friend Kev who walked out on him and their “partner” after he realized they were getting too close. Nick knows why Kev reacted the way that he did, but it doesn’t stop his annoyance with Kev. When he discovers that Jana and Kev love each other but that Kev has refused to acknowledge such, the wheels start turning. In no time Nick falls hard for Jana. Knowing how badly Kev and Jana need each other and how much he needs them both to be happy, he sets out on a mission to conquer and destroy all of Kev’s personal blockers; and hopefully bring the trio some well-deserved happiness. ~~~ Oh Ms. Redford, how I have missed you. *sighs* We really should not spend so much time between books. Seriously you guys, this author has an awesometastic way of describing the best sex scenes and she doesn’t skimp either. You can bet that if you are reading a book by Ms. Redford, you will be beyond satisfied with the multiple creative scenes she provides. This book is actually a second in a non-existent series. I say that because I couldn’t find anything indicating such. I only know this because I read the first book, THE NAUGHTY LIST last year. Jana is Bram’s little sister and Kev is Ry, Bram, and Lacey’s chef at the restaurant. Other than that connection, the book is in no way dependent on the first book. Of course they both have some pretty fantastic ménage scenes. *wink* ~~~ I really enjoyed getting to know Kev, Jana, and Nick. Each knows what they want. I liked that Jana refused to give up even when Kev tries to shut her down. Nick was a necessary component to this story that both brought knowledge and rounded out the relationship. His sexual tendencies were, for the most part, opposite Kev so the two together basically created the perfect man. And I liked that Nick realizes right away what Kev is about to walk away from and launches a no holds barred assault to get Kev to see the truth of what is standing right in front of him. Kev gets props for remaining true to character. He really does need a good knock in the head to break through all of the personal barriers he has erected over the years. Another great addition was the appearance of Ry, Bram, and Lacey. More so Lacey, but it was fun to see how much she had grown as a character in confidence since the previous book. ~~~ I liked that rather than all ménage like the first book, this book changes it up with a couple of M/F scenes so it is not all ménage. Not saying anything against ménage! No way! Just saying it is nice to have variety. And the wit in the story absolutely kills me! Some of the crazy phrases are the best. You will absolutely love the personality Ms. Redford brings to the story. The characters are real. Their happiness, sadness, and fears palpable. And as before, the questionable reality of such a relationship remains, yet somehow Ms. Redford just makes it work. If you loved THE NAUGHTY LIST then this is hands down a MUST read. And the same I will say of Ms. Redford’s fans. Those of you who have yet to experience this book and/or author are missing out! For serious! Spice up your holiday season with CHECKING IT TWICE. Better yet, get TWICE the fun and read THE NAUGHTY LIST too. I promise you will NOT be disappointed! ~~~ (eBook copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review.)
