Three warm Holiday love stories from three amazing romance authors! All I’m Asking For is a sparkly romance anthology for Chick Lit readers everywhere with a short story from Brighton Walsh, Kat Latham and Christi Barth! With these three masters of contemporary swoon-worthy and heart-squishy tales of love, the only thing missing from this escape is the gentle snow falling and the fire roaring in the hearth.

Tinsel My heart by Christi Barth is a tale of second chances for two high s

This little anthology contains three cute (and sexy) Christmas stories that will warm you up this holiday season!!

The first is Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth, in which we meet Becca and Jack. Becca's production of this year's Christmas show is in jeopardy after she loses her director to rehab. Lucky for her his directing partner, Jack, shows up to take his place. And they're both reminded of the feelings they used to have for each other back in high school...

This one was cute, but I have to be

Are you looking for a sweet, definitely sexy and absolutely wonderful holiday read?

You need to pick up this Novella by Brighton Walsh.

In Season of Second chances we meet Claire and Logan... exes who went their separate ways several years ago. Claire finds herself stranded in the airport and Logan just happens to come to her rescue offering her a place to wait out the storm... and spend her birthday.

Despite being apart for two years, their chemistry certainly hasn't diminished and spending tim

I had a lovely time reading this Christmas Anthology and if you're like me and enjoy a good holiday romance then this book is a must read :)

My reviews for each story can also be found under the authors page, I've included the direct link.

The first story is Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth

I enjoyed reading Tinsel My Heart, it was a fun and steamy holiday read.

Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth
Kind of second chance romance. Set in Minneapolis in the winter (I feel cold just reading that.) Really good. I find myself infuriated by the way a) the heroine’s family, especially her mother, treated her, and b) the way the hero’s friends parents hate him based on, nothing, from what I can tell.

Season of Second Chances by Brighton Walsh
A second chance/third chance romance. Sweet and nice.

Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth - DNF in first chapter. Hated the hero.

Season of Second Chances by Brighton Walsh - 3 stars.

Mine Under the Mistletoe by Kat Latham - 3 stars.
I'm not a prude, truly I'm not. But I don't see the need for endless f-bombs and crude references to anatomy - especially not in the first few pages. Not my kind of book. ...more
I have previously read and enjoyed Kat Latham's Knowing the Score London Legends #1, which has the honor of being the first sports romance I have read and enjoyed.

I read all three stories in this Anthology and enjoyed two of them.

Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth

In Tinsel My Heart a now famous director Jack Whittaker returns to Minnesota to fill in for his directing partner, former best-friend Ty, who has let Jack down once again due to his drug addiction. Jack is unwilling to let Becca Huntley

Season of Second Chances – 5 stars

Sometimes it’s difficult to understand just how much history is between two characters when you only have so many words to tell a story. Many novellas rush right through things and while the end result is great, I often feel like I’m missing something. Second chance love stories deserve the buildup, the pain and heartache that lead to the second chance and then the love and heartwarming moments that bring them back together.

Season of Second Chances was a perfect

All I’m Asking for is a series of short stories Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth, Season of Second Chances by Brighton Walsh, and Mine Under the Mistletoe by Kat Latham. Ordinarily, I love stories centered around the holidays, but this anthology, though each were interesting in their own ways, was lack luster overall. Overall, this is a cute set of stories and each on its own is worth picking up for a few minutes. Most books that I read draw me into their

I absolutely loved this collection! There was not a single story that I did not thoroughly enjoy. All three authors were new to me but other works by them have all found their way onto my TBR list.

Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth: This is the story of Hollywood hotshot director Jack and his reluctant return to his hometown and the best friend he left behind. Becca is producing the show he has come to direct and they are forced to spend quite a bit of time together. The chemistry between these tw

3.5 stars, but I rounded up.
This is a review of the audio edition.
All 3 of the novellas included in this were nice. There wasn't anything that rocked my world, but the whole experience was a nice way to spend laundry day. There were no glaring grammar/usage errors, which always makes me happy, but being a Harlequin production I would expect no less. I did have one twinge regarding a detail in the 3rd story, Mine Under the Mistletoe by Christi Barth. It's about a wom

Tinsel my Heart
Loved it! Sort and sweet and full of love, with a few steamy scenes. The perfect way to star this little collections. I loved the characters and honestly wanted more. It was nice to see the friendships they had never ended after years of being apart.
Season of Second chances
This short was all about second chances and steamy sex scenes. Short but full of love and drama. Enough to keep the pages turning and you wanting more. I loved the characters and the story line. It was an easy

Spectacular collection…and it took me only a year to get to them. Well. Each story tugs a different heartstring. This is my introduction to Christi Barth's and Kat Latham's writings. Have read Brighton Walsh before—her Plus One early last year.

Barth's “Tinsel My Heart” is cute but drags a bit, and the language tends to lose me. Walsh's “Season of Second Chances” is a beautiful, very sexy and touching story with great dialogue. Insta-love aside, Latham's “Mine Under the Mistletoe” is

This book is a compilation of three separate short stories Season of Second Chances by Brighton Walsh, Mine Under the Mistletoe by Kat Latham and Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth.

Let me tell you each one of these stories are so heart warming and steamy! This book has three well written short stories that are sure to warm more than your heart! These books show that some people can be redeemed in spite of their qualities. Another one shows that you never know what will happen when you meet a sexy

Let me say first that Kat Latham's story was by far the best story in this bunch. It was sweet, serious, and sexy. I loved it. The other two were disappointing. Christi Barth's story felt like a continuation of something else, like I was missing some information. The storyline about the parents was unnecessary and undeveloped. Brighton Walsh's story would have been very good, but the hero started using the f-word for everything. I don't particularly like that word, but that is not my problem wit ...more

All I’m asking for is a great collection of holiday novellas, perfectly short and sweet to enjoy. Since I would give too much away I will just give you a glimpse into each.

Tinsel my Heart by Christi Barth

Tinsel my Heart by Christi Barth is about Jack and Becca. They used to be very close as kids and were best friends. But Jack left his hometown and left Becca behind. Now Jack is a Hollywood director and Becca is a producer in her hometown. While Jack is reluctant to face the best friend he left

Recommends it for: 14+
What an enjoyable mid spring Christmas. Maybe it is all the rain with the remembrance of cold Christmas' past but this was just what I needed to give me hope during this stressfilled time.

All 3 stories stand alone, although I would love to see more of each of them. They each have a little bit diffrent piece of wisdom to impart. I personally like that. Kind of learning from others mistakes and/or misconceptions.

I highly recommend this anthology ro anyone 14+ due to language and adult themes.
