This book was so great! From beginning to end I was hooked!

I love Martha, she ain’t no pushover! She is the type of leading lady that I love to read about, and Joaquin is her perfect man once he got his head outta his butt.

The parents were really getting on my nerves. These character almost had me to a point where I was going to start skipping the scenes that they were in, and would’ve had hated to do that.

Other than Martha, the other sisters didn’t see

Ok. Lisa Marie Perry is now officially on my list of favourite authors!

Just For Christmas Night is a fabulous and SEXY,SEXY,SEXY read!

Martha is the wild child of the Blue dynasty. She's like an enigma wrapped in a riddle. But not all is as it seems. Joaquin, the hero, is a tortured soul. He, like our heroine, has somethig to prove, if only to himself. Their relationship was broken in the past.

I was truly under the impression that Danni story would be my favorite because she rocked the media with her stepping down but Martha, Martha, Martha.... There is no place to begin how this story was THE BEST in the series. Lisa took us on a journey of past lust, resentment, desire, trust, acceptance and choices.

In this story many truths were revealed and Tem got the truth told to her by Martha. Being label a wreckless person to their "brand" did not do anything but make her fight harder to show

Tonight I'm reviewing Just for Christmas Night by author Lisa Marie Perry. A couple of months back I reviewed Midnight Play , book #2 in the The Blue Dynasty Series by Lisa Marie Perry. Ms. Perry was a new-to-me author at the time and I really enjoyed Midnight Play quite a bit. My goal was to read book #1 in the series, but unfortunately my reading schedule never quite made it around to it. I've since had the opportunity to catch  Just for Christmas Night, the latest in the series, and it remin ...more

Not having read the previous books in this series I had no idea what to expect, but as it's a sports-themed romance I was drawn to it from the very start and it can definitely be read on its own. From start to finish Ms. Perry gave us a compelling and admirable heroine, a conflicted hero, lots of intensely emotional twists and turns as well as family issues galore. This read has definitely earned its place amongst all the other books in this popular genre and I look forward to more.

I’m on the fence about the whole “sport themed’ romance, but a nice twist here is less sport and more character, and I was intrigued and engaged early on. I’ve not read the earlier books in this series, so I came at this with a fresh perspective and having heard good things about the previous titles, curiosity.

From the start I liked Martha – the changes she was making as she grew up and started to take pride in her career and life, and her determination to do ‘the right thing’ no matter how man

My current reading indulgence is Christmas themed romances and this sexy story by Lisa Marie Perry definitely hits the spot! I've read Just For Christmas Night as a standalone novel.

Martha is the epitome of the kind of heroine I love to read about. She's strong, determined, independent, but has a rebellious streak too. Underneath the surface, we see that there is much more to Martha than meets the eye. The party-girl reputation castes a shadow over her pro-football publicist job with the Las Veg

Disclosure: I received an ARC in return for a fair and honest review.

I've been waiting for this book, because Martha Blue was my favourite of the Blue sisters even when she was just appearing as a background character in her sisters' stories. Raised by powerful determined parents (the mother is downright manipulative), she was the most rebellious, unconcerned with the family brand and with "image" and bent on having a good time.

This is the third book from the Blue Dynasty series.

Well, the first half of this book was two stars but the second half was four stars. Thus the three star rating.

This is the story of the third Blue daughter Martha and her friend and eventual lover Joaquin Ryder. Martha is the publicist for the Las Vegas Slayers, the NFL team owned by her parents Marshall and Temprence Blue. Joaquin is a friend of the Blue family and a professional boxer who lives in Miami but will defend his title in a fight in

Just For Christmas Night, the third installment in the Blue Dynasty series was great.

Martha Blue's story has been the one that I have been waiting to read and Lisa Marie Perry did not disappoint.

Martha Blue, the youngest and publicist for her family's pro football was one tough cookie. Although she was pegged the ultimate party girl, she never backed down from a challenge.

Night Games introduced me to the Blue Dynamics and Charlette Blue and Nate.
Midnight Play brings Danica Blue to the fore front and Dex.
Just for Christmas brings me Martha Blue and the best offering of the three from the ‘Blue Dynasty’. Martha is strong, witty, complex, and a bit of a party girl (so that is what everyone thinks). She has much to prove to show that she is so much more.

Perry gives a beautiful offering in creating this Blue girl’s story. Joaquin is so much more than he appears to be

Edgy, shadowy tone in this novel pulls you right into the storyline, and keeps the hold.
Both Joaquin and Martha want to prove something with their lives, and are willing to go for it.
Joaquin is a true alpha male, who hold on to the promises made, loyalty, and integrity.
Martha has an attitude, that is aggressive and forward. She knows what she wants, her goals are determinate, and she is willing to take a reputation to achieve them, even if in secrecy. Together they are hot, sensual, and intense.

I loved this story as much as I loved the two previous! Lisa Marie Perry has done it again! I’m on the fence about to jump over and say that this is my favourite so far in this series. Again, another strong woman, doing what she does best and fighting for what she believes in is a must!

She reconnects with fighter Joaquin who lets her know that in fact her daddy is the one looking to fire her. But that isn't all he shares with her.

Two souls trying to fight the sparks that flare every time they're in each other's presence and man do they have sparks. Martha's trying to prove to her parents/bosses that she's not the flighty party girl they think her to be and Joaquin's fighting to not be who/what he was born into. The sparks and passion between these two could be felt in the pages. I could not put this book down and had a little tear ...more

I liked this Blue Dynasty book. I really enjoyed Martha and Joaquin together. I also liked getting glimpses of her sisters so I felt updated and in touch with their lives as well. The Blue parents were a central part of this novel and I like how in love they remain and how integral a part of their lives family continues to be in their business. I hope we get updates on Avery and other situations in the upcoming 4th novel in the series. I look forward to it coming out.

Omg! This book was excellent from start to finish. After reading Martha and Joaquin's love story, I'm a true believer that "age ain't nothin' but a number!!!" Although Martha was 23 compared to Joaquin's 33, she was able to put something on him that infatuation had nothing to do with! I thoroughly enjoyed there back and forth banter, and even how they tried to resist and stay away from one another. When true love is in the mix, realization set in and neither one could live without the other! Awe ...more

I received this book through the Goodreads First-Reads Giveaway.

This is a very steamy love story about two people who grew up together but an incident separated them. Now they are back in each others lives and old flames are rekindled. I really liked the characters, especially Martha. She is a strong, competent woman who doesn't take crap from anyone. She is more than beats the eye and has her eye on Juaquin.

Martha is known as being a party girl but really but she has great ambitions for life that no one knows about. Then walks back into her life her lost love and her life heats up.
