Unwrapping the Best Man by Rachael Stewart

Unwrapping The Best Man


On the first night of Christmas, her sexy crush finally gave to her—an unbelievably hot night! Now she’s ready for nights two, three and four… Unwrap the steamy sequel to Getting Dirty by Rachael Stewart.

I’ve lusted after brawny, gorgeously rough Jackson Black for six lust-fueled, unrequited years. But Jackson has rules, and the big one is “no getting involved with clients” of his elite London sex club. Including me. But our best friends are getting married, and for one deliciously hot night, the maid of honor and best man agree…what happens in the Scottish Highlands, stays in the Scottish Highlands.

It was everything I wanted and more…until the complete jerk disappears during the night.

Now it’s Christmas, and I have a plan to prove to Jackson Black just how much I don’t care, that he doesn’t turn me on like a Christmas tree. Only Operation: Naughty Elf is backfiring big-time. That aching need for his touch is stronger than ever. It’s painfully clear that I want more than just a fling from the untouchable Jackson Black.

I have one chance to unwrap the best man. But is this sexy, guarded grinch about to steal my heart…or break it?


I always know I’m going to have a great read from Rachael Stewart, and Unwrapping the Best Man did not disappoint.  I always love the broody heroes scarred emotionally by their pasts who find the one tough and confident woman who can make them whole again.

A mutual attraction. A broken man. A determined woman. An ending worth waiting for.

He listens. He’s let me drown my sorrows at the bar, rant and rave about my over-protective family, celebrated my latest PR win, teased me over my outfits, my cheek, my flirtatious exploits. But never has his facade cracked. Never has he hinted that he wants the same. Until today…and it’s an opportunity I can’t let slip away.

Caitlin Carey is one rebellious and determined woman. When she finally gets a sensual and erotic night with the unobtainable, Jackson Black, and he leaves her high and dry for months after, it’s time for a plan. Will she be able to rid him of his demons? 

I wanted her for me. And now I can have her; for a finite time she’s mine and the control that I depend on, the control that I insist on and have done for the last twenty years, is sliding away so swiftly I think I’m falling.

Jackson is a successful businessman who plays by the rules. That means no fraternizing with his clients…especially Caitlin Carey. Jackson is reckless in life, but in control of his sexual needs. Until Caitlin. She has the power to make him lose control and he feels unworthy of her. His past is dark and carnal and he doesn’t want to inflict it upon her. Their days are numbered. He cannot have a future with her.

From the very beginning, the reader will root for this gorgeous couple. The tension is palpable and doesn’t end with the first night. No matter how hard Jackson resists, he is a goner.  Jackson and Caitlin are so good together with her capacity for love and his yearning for something better. For example, Jackson hates Christmas, but when he meets her family during the holidays he begins to open up and feels true happiness for the first time.  Of course, it wouldn’t be a great story without Jackson’s past coming back to haunt him and causing havoc and mayhem for the pair, but in true Stewart fashion, it ends in HEA.

This lovely holiday story is naughty and nice, sweet and dark, and one that I couldn’t put down. I recommend you grab your favorite beverage and settle in for a romantic treat. 

Check out my glowing review for Getting Dirty which follows Coco and Ash’s story.

Thank you to Ms. Stewart for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.

Rachael StewartRachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heartwarmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.

She’s been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.

A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
