Dipped in Holly (Nick and Holly #1) – Dana Isaly

Genre: Romance
Publisher: Independently Published
Pages: 66
Release Date: December 11, 2021

Holly was just dumped. 

Less than a week before Christmas. In public. Dressed as a slutty Mrs. Claus. 
All she wants is to hide in the bathroom and have a breakdown in peace. 

But the Silver Fox who owns the bar has other plans.

The moment Nick takes in Holly’s grey eyes and sassy attitude, he’s hooked. 
There’s no denying the attraction that has sparked between them. 
And when that tension finally snaps, he finds himself taking Holly to bed. 

A kinky one night stand later, and they’re left questioning if it was enough.


Dipped in Holly is the perfect quick read for those looking for pure Christmas SMUT.

Holly and Nick have instant chemistry and felt believable despite the very short length. 

The reason I rated it three stars instead of four is because I discovered I’m not a fan of the daddy kink. It wasn’t an overwhelming amount of daddy kink, so I was able to enjoy it nonetheless. There are a few other trigger warnings at the beginning of the story, which were appreciated.

Overall, Dipped in Holly is the perfect quick read if you’re looking for something to warm you up on those cold winter nights leading up to Christmas.
