So….i happened to not be able to sleep last night and out of ALL the books I have on my kindle (all read of course) the only one I could download was Don’t Open Till Christmas….and as every unforgiving kid against the gifts on xmas morning….i just HAD TO READ IT AGAIN….

This is one of those “supermarket books” that people look at on the shelves at Wal-Mart or Target and they just think…LAME! (LOL)…and I have to admit that in the beginning I too, was blinded by the misconception of a LAME and Corn

If you want some spice in your hot chocolate to warm you up, then this is the book for you. It was quick and sweet, just how I like it.
A cute, fun, and very sexy holiday read. Chicago cop Mark meets social worker Noelle while investigating a string of robberies involving a thief dressed as Santa Claus. Mark and Noelle have terrific chemistry, and the secondary characters, including Noelle's cousin and Mark's family, are all very likable and round out the cast nicely. I loved the charming and festive town of Christmas where part of the story takes place. An enjoyable holiday read if you're looking for something on the sexier sid ...more
A hurting social worker who cares deeply for abused women and children and who has been ripped off by someone posing as a Santa for the kids' party. A gorgeous Chicago police detective who has been lied to and hurt by the woman he loved and who has decided women aren't worth it except in temporary encounters. These are the two who make this story work. Yet there is the back story--the mystery of who is ripping off stores and non-profit organizations. Also, Noelle's cousin who lives in Christmas, ...more
As well as the expected romance and hot sex of a 'Blaze' (and this one was definitely hot!), 'Don't Open till Christmas' has a great story with a bit of mystery, based as the title suggests at Christmas. I really enjoyed all aspects of this book and will be hunting out more of Leslie Kelly's work. 'Don't Open till Christmas' is full of fun and Christmas spirit. I highly recommend it!
This is the story of Mark and Noelle. Noelle is a Social Worker with a lot of reasons to hate Christmas who finds herself having to shop for a dress for a policital Christmas Party on Black Friday. After turning down a hot little number in black and being dressed only in a lacy set of undies she is surprised when a very handsome man is shoved into her dressing room and practically falls on top of her. In a moment of instant attraction they share a heated kiss and he is gone. Mark, the eldest of ...more
3.5 Stars. Mark is a cop, investigating a ring of Santa thieves who’ve robbed the charity Noelle runs. Mark and Noelle met once before, in fairly intimate fashion, and even though they’ve both been burned in relationships and they’re reluctant to go there again, sparks can’t help but fly between them.

The first half of the novel features Noelle’s Christmas crazy hometown, cute toy nostalgia and much, much steaminess.

The second half appealed to me a little more, as it offered up a return trip the

una historia que ame desde el inició y que es fácil de conectar y conocer a los personajes, sin duda adore el sentido del humor de los dos y la conexión que tenían.
Lo único en donde espere mas fue en el final pero no me pareció tan mal al fin de cuentas, ese romance si que valió la pena de leer.
Recomiendo totalmente la historia.
I liked this book, but was surprised there was no teaser about the next book in the epilogue.
Such a wonderful story to start off the season with. Quite romantic
