Blurb:As leftover turkey and stuffing give way to stockings and little black dresses, this tantalizingly sexy eBook bundle offers up holiday-themed novellas from a trio of beloved romance authors. Lisa Renee Jones gives a dedicated reporter and a powerful businessman a chance to count their Thanksgiving blessings in Play with Me; Mary Ann Rivers presents Snowfall, the story of a woman who confronts a life-changing event—hopefully with a special man by her side—just in time for Christmas; and in Serena Bell’s After Midnight, an explosive New Year’s kiss leaves two strangers wondering whether they’ll ever see each other again.
PLAY WITH ME by Lisa Renee JonesKali Miller has spent three years reporting fluff stories, waiting for the article that will launch her career to new heights. When she suddenly finds herself forced to take a job as an executive secretary at a Vegas casino, Kali meets the subject of what will surely be a shocking exposé: her boss, Damion Ward, the arrogant and undeniably sexy CEO. But after Damion invites her to help him plan a Thanksgiving charity event, Kali begins to see another side of the man. And when she surrenders to the exhilarating tension simmering between them, Kali hopes her story will have a happy ending.
My Thoughts:It was easy to get swept up on this quick short story. I'm a fan of Lisa Renee Jones books so its no surprised that I really enjoyed this book. The book felt a little rushed but its not a big deal being that it was a novella. I liked the story, the characters were likable. Overall I really enjoyed this novella. This is a good, steamy little read that perfect for Thanksgiving.
SNOWFALL by Mary Ann RiversJenny Wright can’t get enough of her erotic conversations with someone she knows only as “C.” Flirting online helps Jenny temporarily escape confronting the changes to her life as she slowly loses her vision. Jenny’s occupational therapist, Evan Carlisle-Ford, is helping her prepare for the challenges ahead, but the forthright, trustworthy man can no longer ignore his growing attraction to his fiercely intelligent client. Now Jenny must choose between the safe, anonymous “C”—or the flesh-and-blood Evan, whose heated kisses can melt snow faster than it can fall.
My Thoughts:Jenny has a passion for microbiology, and was uprooted to go to a great school for microbiology. Jenny also has an eye condition where her vision is slowly deteriorating so she frequently visited a physical therapist to help her prepare for the future. When a note to the previous owner of her apartment she wrote a message to that person under a pen name. For a short while they exchange emails and Jenny is slowly getting used to hanging out wit
I enjoyed this book. It was interesting getting the point of view from someone who has an eye condition which made it unique. I loved how it had the holiday theme I loved that there wasn't some overly dramatic situations happening. This book is beautifully written and I pretty much much couldn't stop reading this novella until the very end. Everything was sweet and easy in this book. Its the perfect story to just curl up with a hot chocolate and snuggle up in some sheets for Christmas. I loved that connection between Jenny and Even.
AFTER MIDNIGHT by Serena BellThe clock is ticking down to midnight on New Year’s Eve, and all Nora Hart and Miles Shephard can think about is kissing each other—even though they met just minutes before. Then, as fast as Miles enters Nora’s life, he’s gone . . . and she never even gets the name of the man she thinks might just be “the one.” One year later, Nora and Miles are reunited. The chemistry between them is just as strong as they remember. But Miles broke her heart once before—and this time around, Nora’s not sure whether she can give love a second chance
My Thoughts:They meet at a new years party and had a connection so strong that they couldn't stop thinking about . Nora just couldn't let him go, she didst get a number or a name but just felt the connection she had with this mystery guy at a new years party. No matter how hard she searched she could'couldn't find him. After a year they managed to find each other. His, Miles, secret could ruin this relationship that seems to start with a bang, but know he can't keep it to himself.
Short, Steamy and enjoyable perfect for the new years. I'm not a fan of those instant connection types of books but with this book suited it well. I liked how persistent Nora was to find Miles, I think that many women can related to her, except the whole jumping his bones soon as she found him part (Or hey it could related to you, what ever floats your boat). I liked that during this short book the readers can see Miles develop a bit and was able to get his life somewhat back in order learning to open up to his friends and co-workers. One thing I like about this book is that there is more then one point of view. The readers got to see what was going on with Miles and Nora which I loved. I loved the connection and the steamy scence. This story was well written and really enjoyed it.
