This was a cute 'friends to lovers' story. There wasn't much character development, but it was a very short read--so I suppose some things have to be compromised.

Ty suddenly notices his plain, kind of chubby, best friend is hot and he's in love with her after the cliched much needed makeover.

The steam factor was pretty low, considering this is marketed as a Blaze. They didn't even get it on until approx page 195, and it was quite pg-13. Well she did decorate his package with some tinsel--which

A Man For All Seasons was surprisingly enjoyable. I only bought this because the book was on sale at Harlequin, and I wanted a Christmasy read.

The premise sounded cute, but not romantic, the hero, Ty, buys twelve dates for his roommate Marlie to get her out of the house so he get have some alone time with his girlfriend. I wasn't sure how Heather MacAllister was going to create a believable romance since both the hero and heroine are dating other people, but I thought the author did an admirabl
A 4.5 star holiday romance worth indulging in!

The question utmost on my mind after finishing up this delectable, spicy and funny holiday romance is “Where on Earth has Heather MacAllister been all my reading life?”. I mean seriously! This book tickled all my funny bones unlike any story I have read of late and the funny bones weren’t the only ones that Ty tickled with his wickedly inappropriate thoughts about his friend Marlie who all of a sudden turns into a sexy siren that calls to his libido

Tyler Burton and Marlie Waters grew up together and currently Ty is living in Marlie's house while his house is being built. Marlie doesn't date all, since having her heart broken by her ex-fiancee and Ty, who has a girlfriend and can never get any alone time with her because Marlie is always in the house, decides to purchase a "12 days of Christmas" charity auction package which is 12 dates....with 12 different guys. It works at first, until Ty realizes he loves Marlie (who already kn ...more

After reading a number of very forgettable HQ books this month, this MacAllister was a very refreshing, enjoyable, fun read. Others have reviewed this book, or given the synopsis, so I'll just say I recommend this one highly. I love MacAllister's writing style - the words just flow across the page. I just hope Axelle gets her own story!!!

So good...there were times when I was frustrated with both characters, but it never lasted long enough to jeapordize how much I liked them. They seemed kind of real too, with realistic flaws.... And the Axelle thing resolved in a surprising way, I was worried that was gonna ruin it for me. Lots of fun, lots of heart....enjoyed it. And apparently I'm feeling more verbose today.

A light, fun Christmas read from the Blaze Books of Christmas 2010. P.S. Santa ... I would like an upgraded version of Marnie's original bed! Thank you.

This is so worth reading around Christmas. Childhood friends fall in love, but not before a few stumbling blocks get in the way.
