Chronologically A Baumgartner Christmas is between Meet The Baumgartners and The Baumgartners Plus One.

After reading the first two books, A Baumgartner Christmas provides nothing new at the FF and the FFM department. It is stuffed with the same dirty talk, with exactly the same phrases repeated.

Even the foursome scene was boring, I expected more. And switching is not my preference anyway. Let alone all the unprotected sex, unprepared still unbelievably enjoyable (view spoiler)

So I wasn't sure how I felt about this one at first. At first, I was thinking Doc was being sort of selfish by suggesting to Carrie that if she wants to, she should go ahead and have sex with another woman. I mean, he'd get benefit out of it too, right? And Carrie IS bisexual. But it seemed like he was suggesting too "loudly", which I think is how Carrie was feeling, too. Did he want Carrie to engage other women SO THAT he'd have someone new to screw around with, too? And I thought it was a litt ...more

Takes place between meeting the Baumgartners and Baumgartners plus one.

Carrie and Doc are having a relationship trouble in their marriage. Most of it is Docs crazy residence hours but Carries attraction to her best friend Daphne puts stress on. Also Docs friend Wilson is starting to look hott,well at least the idea of discovering what he has tattoed on his....

Look forward to m/f, f/f, a menage of three n four. No male on male touching but the men enjoy the women even as they enjoy each other.
4.5 Stars!

This was an awesomely hot read. I love Carrie and Doc, so it was nice visiting with them again. This story takes place between Meet The Baumgartners and The Baumgartners Plus One.

Carrie and Doc have been monogamous since their marriage and their failed menage with her old roommate turned born-again Christian, Maureen. But Doc brings up the possibility of getting busy with Carrie's new best friend, Daphne. Carrie thinks she's not enough but she can't deny that she has an attraction tow

This was another filling, heated, and steamy read by Selena Kitt. I've enjoyed getting to know these characters and seeing whether story takes them and this petition was just as over-the-top in the best possible way. If you're looking for a story that is well-written, enjoyable, and definitely pushes the boundaries of it, then this is a great book for you!

I couldn't put it down, and I definitely look forward to reading more of the series soon!

The only thing that could have made this quickie better was some Wilson and Doc action, alas, plenty of ff action though.

Another Baumgartner tale from early in Doc and Carrie's marriage while Doc is still in his residency program and Carrie is at loose ends. She's attracted to her friend Daphne but is a little gunshy after her foray in ff sex with her college roommate, Maureen that didn't end so well.

4.5 stars! This latest installment would be chronologically just after Meet the Baumgartner s. A Baumgartner Christmas could be read as a stand alone, however I personally feel you would enjoy the story more if you read Meet the Bamgartners first. Mainly, because knowing the characters prior to this story helps the reader to understand the dynamics of their relationship.

This book explains how Carrie and Doc decide that bringing other people into the marriage and into their bedroom is the right thing for them as a couple. Selena does an excellent job of portraying the guilt that Carrie feels for being attracted to other people, and the worry she has that Doc wants to include another woman because she's not enough for him. As always, the sex scenes are fantastic. I can always count on Selena for a great read, and this is no exception.

A Baumgartner Christmas is a erotic story in the Baumgartner series by Selena Kitt. In this story, we learn how Carrie and Doc started adding others into their relationship. I love this series, mainly because of Doc. Wow, he's incredibly HOT.
I read this a while ago and I remember it being fairly enjoyable but that's it - not very rememberable. It is definitively worth reading in order to get the full picture of the Baumgartners but by far not my favourite.

I spent a pleasurable morning catching up with the Baumgartners. I do love Carrie and Doc's open relationship. They love each other fiercely but are willing to share that love and open their hearts to others.

" He kissed her cheek, her chin, getting up and lifting her onto the bed. “Why do you always deny yourself? You can have everything you want.”

“You can’t have everything,” she murmured. “No one can have everything.”

“You can,” he assured her. “I’d give you anything. You know I would.”


How can you not fall for Doc?! omg, I already love him so much. If me

Wow!!! The “hotness” continues ….A Baumgartner Christmas, the 4th book I read in the B’s series has changed my idea of Xmas forever!!!! And the HOT & FAB COVER!!!!!

Doc (please can’t I call him Stephen???) and Carrie are still the most exciting, scandalous, sexy and hot couple around………and I just looooooove finding out more about their very unusual!!! And interesting!!!! Life…at least their sex life……there’s not much else one wants to know about the “normal” everyday chores!!!!!!!!

Doc &
Great short novella. Very sexual hot. Carrie and Doc agree that maybe Carrie needs something else in her life and they both hit on the idea that her friend Daphne might be what will spice up things for them. Also, Doc has a friend named Wilson who is on the rebound and he thinks if Carrie is not interested in Daphne that she might be a good match for Wilson. The mix ends up as a menage and they all seem to be pretty happy. The Baumgartners have a great sexy Christmas.

Jul 26, 2015 Dar rated it liked it
Not my favourite, only because of the hesitancy on Doc's part. I know he always says he will do whatever he needs to for Carrie, but it seemed as though he wasn't completely happy with the Wilson situation. That made me uncomfortable, and I have never felt that with the Baumgartner's before

4.5 Stars

I really enjoyed this Christmas story. The Christmas theme is light and more focused on Carrie and Doc finding what really works for their marriage. It’s full of sexual excitement and anticipation, brimming with new experiences and finding that what really makes their relationship work is the communication and trust these two have for each other.

Well, this story was pretty hot! I still stand by the conviction that a married couple taking on other partners seems to cheapen the vows somehow...but, again, the married couple in question seem to be happy with the arrangement, as do the other people joining in the who am I to judge?

Wow! Just Wow! Seriously, Wow! I am now officially addicted to the Baumgartners. Selena Kitt writes steamy, sensual and oh so HOT stories. This book as well as the rest of the books in the Beaumgartner series was well-written. It is a quick and deliciously sexy read.

This was the last of the Baumgartner series for me to read. Yeah I know I read them out of order some how. I'm a little sad that I have now read them all. It feels like I know the whole Baumgartner family and I am going to miss them. What an amazing series!
Selena Kitt does it again, A Baumgartner Christmas is the best Christmas present you can give yourself. You really can't go wrong with this series. The Baumgartners are very open to sharing which makes their fun in the bedroom really HOT!
