Peek Inside Hold Me Until Midnight

Scarlett Ashford needs a date for her father's wedding. Only she doesn't just need a guy in a suit—she needs a bodyguard. Except that Jackson Grayson is big and gorgeous and way too sexy.

Every good girl loves a very bad boy…

Scarlett Ashford needs a date for her father’s wedding. Only she doesn’t just need a guy in a suit—she needs a bodyguard. The only problem is that Jackson Grayson is big and gorgeous and way too sexy. So much so that Scarlett’s tempted to let this hot bad boy ruin her oh-so-good reputation…

Jackson doesn’t do relationships and he certainly doesn’t sleep with clients. Yet he can’t fight their inconvenient attraction, or how badly he wants Scarlett’s warm and wicked curves against his body. He wants her. Now. Even if it’s just for one night, and even if walking away the next morning isn’t as easy as he thought.

Besides, one hot and incredibly intense night between a bad boy and a pampered princess could never turn into something real…could it?


"I laughed, I had fun, I felt hot, and on turning the last page I felt super satisfied!!"--Lina's Reviews: A Book Blog

"This is another fast-paced, romantic read from Christina Phillips with many sizzling scenes, ranging from cheeky to romantic and downright sexy...a sweet and hot story of how two people from opposite sides of the tracks unexpectedly come together against all the odds!" --A Reader's Review

"A really enjoyable read, likeable characters and an easy-going plot kept me interested and entertained until the end, and I hope to see more of the Grayson brothers and their very own brand of witty sarcasm, very soon!" --Claire Robinson, Goodreads

"...Phillips has crafted an interesting and heated novel. She combines sweet & sexy in a way that tugs at your heart. Phillips also works a number of touchy and heart wrenching subjects into the mix in a way that creates a much deeper tale." --Jonel, Goodreads

4 - "I don't kiss ass, babe. I kick it." Stars!

I really enjoyed Hold Me Until Midnight, it is the first book in the Grayson Brother series, and the first I have read by the author.

One thing that stood out from this book for me is that Christina Phillips knows ...more

"You want to dance?" ...
"Like Dirty Dancing you mean?" ... His jaw grazed the soft skin of her cheek.
"I can do dirty," he breathed the words against her ear. "I just don't do the dancing." ...
"I can do the dancing." Scarlett's whisper was husky. "Looks like we're evenly matched, Jackson."

4 ~ Growly Alpha ~ Stars!

I loved this one! Jackson was such a growly alpha! He was cocky, confident, and so sexy. The chemistry was instant, the sexual tension was palpable and the banter was sweet and steamy.

Scarlett was an awesome h, loved her. These two bo ...more

I love these brazen books. They are the perfect mindless smut after an angsty book or a NA jag just to get my mind cleared. Although ordinarily they are pretty forgettable this one was awesome.

I seriously am burnt out on the poor naïve virgin and sexy billionaire that seems to be the norm so when I ...more

Jackson is a naughty boy, "she felt him smile against the soft skin below her ear. “I may be wearing a suit, but just so you know, I’ve still gone commando." He's a romantic guy, "you look great.” He pulled a lily from her hair and brushed the soft petals along her cheek. She wasn’t sure she believe ...more

I very much liked the premise of this story; the heroine hiring a date/bodyguard for her father's wedding. And Scarlett and Jackson create quite some heat because from the start, this book is filled with sexy-time.


There is more to this couple than the fact they are compatible in bed. Scarlett comes ...more

4-1/2 stars.

This review also appears on Pretty Sassy Cool.

This story is basically all hotness. You might think you're tired of the good girl falling for the bad boy, but this genre is popular for a reason. And Hold Me Until Midnight is the perfect example done right.

Scarlett hires Jackson to be her ...more

The best line: "You promised I would scream. And I didn't."
Phillips delivers again with a great read about Scarlett and Jackson. It's a simple storyline and it really works well. A hero from the wrong side of the tracks and a wealthy heroine. Her family don't want him but the heroine is strong enoug ...more

Ok if you are brand new to romance and have never ever read a girl meets bodyguard, needs bodyguard services, has hot monkey sex with bodyguard and falls in love with bodyguard story, this may be really fresh and exciting plot for you. For the rest of us, it’s a very familiar story. This is an excep ...more

My Thoughts:

I've never met an Entangled Brazen book I didn't like... From the start, this book had me reeled in. I couldn't remember the synopsis when I picked this one up, so it was nice to see how it developed without knowing all the ...more

Series: Grayson Brothers #1
Rating: 4 stars - really enjoyable

She might have fallen for Jackson against all her best intentions. But maybe it wouldn't end with her getting her heart broken.

I was pleasantly surprised by this one as I’ve had mixed results with the Entangled: Brazen line of novels. ...more

This is exactly what I was looking for: sexy, easy read, low angst, low drama quotient. Probably wouldn’t be classified as a “classic” but sometimes you just want a fun, sexy read that doesn’t tax your mind.

I received this from Netgalley/ Entangled publishing in exchange for an honest review. This was a really good read. I laughed and just could not out it down.

Scarlett hired a bodyguard for her father's wedding, so he could pretend to be her date and the last thing she expects is to wanting him as more. The chemistry between Scarlett and Jackson made the reading so pleasurable and since this is a drama free book it was exactly what I wanted to read. ...more

By Zeljka January 10, 2018

This was short and sweet read that I *liked*, but it lacked the intensity and some originality in the story line that would actually bring it to 5-star level. However, I did enjoy it, and found it really cool that there could be a good-girl-that-comes-from-money and bad-boy-who-had-no-money-but-made ...more

Wow. For a quick read, I was surprised that I enjoyed it more than some of the regular books I've read before. The story wasn't that much complicated, kind of cliche but my, it definitely delivers. This made me excited to read more of this author's books as this was a first for me. The chemistry bet ...more
