Peyton Cabot hates his life: being a rock star, performing for screaming crowds, being interviewed for magazines’ hottest musician of the year articles, winning awards, and banking loads of money.
Yeah, it sucks to be him.
After every show, Peyton tags along to supper with one of the couples in the band, a pathetic third wheel. Sometimes he goes down to the hotel bar to try to hook up with a woman who is traveling for business, usually to strike out because they’re not looking to hang out with a famous twenty-something blond-haired, green-eyed hottie. Every night, he sleeps in a different hotel bed, alone.
Except on those nights when Peyton picks up the phone to call one particular woman, one who understands him like no one else, but now she won’t answer his calls.
When Peyton goes to find her, he gets a Christmas surprise that changes everything.
I loved this addition to the series! Peyton is just about the best book boyfriend—strong and loyal, kind and a bit kinky. Raji is his perfect match—brilliant and beautiful, sassy and a collection of seeming contradictions. Theirs is an intense and thorough love.
5 stars so entertaining well written book,
Oh, Peyton what a kinky nice guy you turned out to be.
I loved Santa Baby. We met Peyton back during the Rock Stars in Disguise: Georgie series. Peyton and Georgie had a relationship when they were young but Peyton did something pretty bad to destroy that relationship and their friendship. He came back into her life after she was involved with Xan (Alexandre) and apologized for his misdeeds but it was too late; Georgie was in love with Xan.
I'm so glad that Blair decided to give Peyton his HEA and tell us more about him. He is introduced to Raji at a mutual friend's wedding. They have a quick hook-up and the sparks fly. Raji is a cardiothoracic surgical resident; her only goal is to become the best heart surgeon in the world. She lives for medicine and will let nothing get in her way. That is until life throws her a curve.
Peyton was a bit of a jerk in the Georgie books but boy does he redeem himself in Santa Baby. He and Raji agree to keep tearing up the sheets with each other without any commitment; that's the way Raji wants it. Peyton loves her and will agree to anything to keep her in his life. Unfortunately, when life throws Raji a curve she backs away from Peyton. From the title we already know that a baby is involved but I'm not giving anything else away. The only other thing I'll say is that there is definitely an HEA for Peyton and Raji, just the way there should be.
Blair Babylon's writing always helps to enrich my vocabulary. 😊 Here are a few of the words I looked up while reading Peyton's story: rictus, titer, susurration, and parturition. I love everything about her stories and I can't wait for the next one!
