**** 4,5 stars ****

I have only read "Every Year" by Kristen Ashley. It's hard to rate something that is so short but I always like to read this additional, short stories to the series I've read. It feels good to catch up with characters I loved. It was nice to see Shy and Landon finally, after years of not having it, getting their Merry Christmas. Christmas with Allens and Cages was sweet and heart-warming. And the earrings gift was just beautiful, love Shy!, so thoughtful.

4 stars for Every Year - Chaos, #2.5
“Every year, baby.”

The fact that it had started snowing made the hilarious event of three Chaos Motorcycle club bikers and a soldier tying a rope to a tree seriously hilarious.

Totally sated my Chaos fix, just wish I had more time with the Alpha-biker man himself, but I’ll take what I can get :) Loved every bit of it! Makes me wonder what else is in store from the Chaos fam-bam.

So... the above picture doesn't have much to do with any of these novellas, but it sure is nice to look at ;D

This anthology fell a little flat for me.

Out of all the novellas, the only one that I really loved was KA's Chaos novella Every Year. I love Shy and Tabby and it was great catching up with them on their first Christmas together. Oh the earrings. I adore Shy!

I'm not sure if it's because I didn't know the back stories of the other novellas, or that I've never read the

Christmas Buddy Read!!!

The plan was to read one story from this book each Tuesday evening. But because it is the 'busy season' it became hard to stick to that plan.

Every Year- by Kristen Ashley
I'll be 100% honest- I bought the book for the soul reason of hearing more from Shy and Danny from Own The Wind. We all know the awesomeness of all things Kit, but she writes a Christmas story like no other. Shy and Landon have not had the greatest holidays since both their parents were killed. But this year, things change

Every Year by Kristen Ashley

I love Shy, Tabby and Landon. So I loved catching up with them. And my heart just melted while reading this. I love that Shy and Landon got to experience a great Christmas as part of a real family. Seeing as KA's books are typically long, I'm surprised at myself for saying this but, I wish this one were longer. I wanted more. But ultimately, it was very satisfying. I would love a book about Landon. I sincerely hope that KA gives him his own story with a HEA. He deser

Only read KA's short. LOVED a holiday memory with Tack, Tyra, Shy, Tabby and their families. Gave me the warm and fuzzies.
I only read the Jill Shalvis which was pretty good. The heroine is scared of commitment so walked away from hero six months before both of them find their way back to each other in a way that made me smile.

How bout that then? No blurb; no release date; no idea what this book is about HOWEVER - it's got KA's name all over it and I. Am. THERE!!!

Very cute short story about fireman, Ian O’Mallery and Melissa Mann, who are in love but because of Melissa’s background she’s pushed Ian away. It takes a near death experience for her to realize she’s made a mistake. Now she will do everything in her power to prove that she’s ready and wants him back.

OK, so I got this just because of the Kristen Ashley Chaos novella, but managed to squeeze a couple of the other stories in too.

Dream a Little Dream - Jill Shalvis

Former lovers are reunited on Christmas Eve when sexy firefighter Ian is called to a house fire that just happens to be in the apartment block of the woman he still desperately loves, Melissa. Tired of being pushed away, Ian takes the opportunity to set things straight, provoking lots of swoon and some steamy time. But Melissa isn’t th

Dream a Little Dream
I really loved Jill's story. The couple drew me in and captured my heart. I even had teary eyes in a few scenes. I would have loved to see more of this couple and their time together. However, at the same time, I felt like Jill did a great job in bringing out such deep emotions with her characters in such a short story. I fell in love with Melissa and Ian from the get go. It was more realistic and I loved that they had a past history which makes for a believable out come.

4 Stars.

A Christmas To Remember is an absolutely stellar selection of seasonal tales provided by some of the most popular authors that are around right now.

Some spicy, some sweet, this book is like a selection box of written treats, with something to suit all. All of the stories are quite short in length, so they are great for a little light relief when you have a spare hour (or are waiting for public transport, like me), and what they all have in common is that they are extremely well written.

Jill Shalvis:
This was a cute story over all. Obviously rushed since it's a novella but cute nonetheless. I can't wait to read the next installment of I Jill Shalvis' series! Ian and Melissa dated for a while but she couldn't commit her heart because it had been shattered too many times so she denied her feelings for Ian. One night Ian got a call for a fire to put out at an apartment complex, being the sexy firefighter he is and rescued her she couldn't resist his charms and remembered all the gr

Bring it on festive mood!

How I love the way Christmas stories warm my heart.
Especially this one has Kristen Ashley's and introduced me to some of authors who I had never got the chance to read their stories before.

Each is short and some have insta-love in them. Who cares, it's Christmas, the season of magic and love :) and miracles. I believe in it, everyone should believe in it.

Enjoy! and Merry Christmas :)

I have picked up and put down this book more times than I can count.
I wanted to love it. I wanted to enjoy it. I planned to read it with a group of friends in December 2013... they all finished and I was stuck in the book.

Yes, each story was good. I liked it. I just didn't get captured by it. I like short stories. I enjoy these authors.

Sigh. I just wanted to like the collection more than I did. Maybe that was the issue - High hopes. High hopes never end well - do they?

Review posted at http://romanceisoursecretpleasure.blo...

This review it's based only on the story Every Year by Kristen Ashley. As I never read any of the authors who took part in this collection and as i am suspecting that the stories are connected with other books i do not see the point reading something i will not understand properly.

Now getting back to "Every Year" i have to say that i loved it. As i do with most of Kristen Ashley books but this one is a bit more special

This one is hard to rate for me because some were great and some were good. I wanted this book for Kristen Ashley's contribution and in fact I have pre-ordered this book and will still buy it even though I was given an ARC copy. But I must say a nice bonus for me was to get introduced to some authors that I had never read and some that I had never heard of. I have found some new authors that I will be reading books from in the future. Overall this was a nice compilation book with fun Christmas s ...more

"Thank you for a great Christmas, Tabby."

"Every year, baby."

Thank you KA for giving me more of Tabby and Shy, both of whom hold a special place in my heart since they're my very first KA couple. This was such a touching novella and what a treat that we also get to see Tack, Tyra, Rush, Cutter, Rider, and Landon all in one house celebrating Christmas!

It was really heartwarming to see all of them but most of all, seeing Shy and Landon get the
