This book has 3 stories written by: Donna Kauffman, Jill Shalvis and HelenKay Dimon. I have enjoyed previous books by Donna and HelenKay, so knew that I was in for a treat. This is my first of Jill's and definitely will not be my last.
UNLEASHED by Donna Kauffman
Emma Lafferty has started her new business and is hired by a CEO billionaire to watch his pets during the holidays. She expects to enjoy a quiet Christmas in her temporary opulent surroundings, but a winter storm traps her and an unexpected visitor, the CEO's great nephew named Trevor inside. Emma is there to protect the animals and house, but Trevor is looking for some very important papers and did not plan on a beautiful pet sitter to disrupt his plans.
From the moment that Emma and Trevor meet in the dark corridor, with their flirtatious and charming ways, you are eagerly awaiting to see what happens next. Their romance is such a delight to see unfold and I enjoyed how their personal space would became one.
FINDING MR.RIGHT by Jill Shalvis
Brilliant chemist Maggie Bell has found Mr. Wrong too many times and with another lonely Christmas almost here, she decides that it's time to change course and seeks out someone who seems totally wrong for her. Jacob Wahler is a rough and rippling contractor who is nowhere near Maggie's type, so she thinks. One night of fun and satisfaction with Mr. Wrong makes Maggie wonder if he really was wrong for her, all she knew is that one night with Jacob was not enough.
I was loving every word! I didn’t want to put it down, but I had too, sleep is needed for work. “Finding Mr. Right” is sexy, electric, funny and upbeat, I could really see this happening, they were a perfect fit for each other, but they needed to find that out. The secret looks, then the touch and that was it. I was chuckling out loud with their words and emotions towards one another and like I said, I didn’t want the story to end. Mr. Wrong is not always who it seems to be, he might be Mr. Right after all. I love early an Christmas present.
CAN YOU HAND ME THE TAPE? by HelenKay Dimon
Natalie Pritchard is desperate. It’s a week before Christmas and she’s lost the naughty tape she made for her now-ex-boyfriend. She’s so desperate, in fact, that she’ll turn to her nemesis Spencer Donovan for help. The sexy criminal defense attorney would be only too happy to assist—but can Natalie afford his price? Spencer is not up for breaking the law, not even for Natalie, but the thought of her on that tape, being naked, what's a man to do? So, he gives in to her pleas to help her. Natalie and Spencer are both smart, cautious and witty.
I loved how the conflict between Natalie and Spencer is so visible, yet the warmth they learn to feel or admit for each other is so touching.
Sweet romance, charm and humor fills these pages. Each story holds its own, but you will not want to stop til you have finished and you will want more. I just loved each and every word and think Christmas should come sooner.
