Super cute!

This was a very short story but it was surprisingly fun, sweet, and sexy. The hero, Nick, is so sweet and really swoon-worthy. The heroine, Steph, is adorable and funny. Reading her naughty wish list made me laugh so hard my stomach hurt. Fortunately, Nick was the one who found this wish list and he was more than ready to make her fantasies come true!

It was a very lovely read, indeed!
Wish List is a quick, sensually erotic, short holiday story (40 pages) that's packed full of fabulous characterization (I adored both the hero and heroine) and heavy on plot. In fact, there was too much plot for such a short book, which left me somewhat dissatisfied with the way the story ended. Don't get me wrong, it ended with a good resolution. However, the book progressed from a light and flirty feel, to a plot with a more serious undertone. It left the reader wanting and deserving more. 


4 Stars for this sweet holiday treat!

"I’m not asking for easy, sweetheart. I’m asking for a chance to make you happy.”

How I wished that Sylvia Day had penned a longer story here, because I would have loved to spend more time with Nick and Stephanie. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed what I read, and became rather quickly attached to the characters. The story was detailed enough with the their past involvement, that you could see how intimacy would present itself so early in the book. As a rea

5 stars.
Yep, you are reading that correctly.

This little gem may just be tailor made for my taste
or maybe it was really that awesome.
It was a bite size bit o' love, but no less satisfying than a full-size batch.

Great "palate cleanser" following a heavier read...
or it might be better described as an 'amuse bouche".
This is how Wikipedia describes that culinary treasure, which, to me, seems oh so perfect:

"These (amuse bouches), often accompanied by a complementing wine, are served as a little tingl
This story started as any other quickie - it was light, fun and sexy - but it took an unexpected turn near the end. It didn't become angsty or too dramatic, but the revelation of the heroine's secret changed the tone of the story. That secret added depth to the H/h's relationship, but it was too serious to be addressed in a quickie, IMHO. I'd love to see this turned into a longer book. As it was, it was unsatisfying.

*** 3,5 stars ***

This was really hot but way too short to get the full five stars. I wish Sylvia Day would give these characters a full story because I loved them! Nicolas James is incredibly romantic but knows how to get down and dirty. He is basically the dream guy and I wish we got more of him! Stephanie Martin comes across as complex (even in this short story!) and I wanted to learn more about (view spoiler). I like how they are both lawyers and Nicolas is so obviously at ...more
Wish List is a short, sweet & spicy read but at only 44 pages it doesn't have much time to go into great depth. I liked both of the characters though & its a nice holiday read if you like short stories.

Davvero qualcuno ha il coraggio di pubblicare queste cose?
Posso dargli 0? non merita altro, veramente.
