This was a nice enough read. I have had a review copy of this book for a couple of years but somehow missed reading it and it ended up buried on my Kindle. I decided to dust off as I was trying to get into the holiday spirit this year. I don't know that it had any impact on my readiness for the holiday but I did find the book to be an okay read. I enjoyed all four of the stories pretty equally with nothing really standing out.

Well, I feel like I'm probably on the Naughty List just by reading this book! As with all anthologies, some stories were better than others. A couple of them are pretty high on the spice meter and a couple of them are tame in comparison but good, nonetheless. You have to expect insta-love in these short stories but it was the ones with a slower build that I enjoyed the most.

I can't decide whether I like Some Kind of Wonderful by Beth Ciotta or Have Yourself a Curvy Little Christmas by Sugar Jam

Never before have I read 4 novellas that were all so fast paced and easy to fall into in the same anthology. Each of these novellas is a brilliant read on its own, but together they are a fantastic novel. Each is a hot and sassy Christmas story that will have your imagination going wild and your pulse hopping throughout. Each author spins their own tale in their own well put together, intriguing voice, but together this was an anthology that I couldn’t put down.

Anthologies are great for when you want a story but don't have the time or interest for something lengthy. They also let you try new-to-you authors. This anthology has one author I've read before (Foster), one I'd heard of before (Phillips) and two completely new to me authors.

Christmas Bonus by Lori Foster - I've had mixed results reading Foster in the past but this one I enjoyed. It could have been fleshed out more, a longer story would have been good, and it had some unlikely events. Still, i

On the Naughty List is a seasonal mix with something for everyone.

Christmas Bonus is an office romance. They've loved each other for years. She's the boss's daughter and later the boss. He's the star employee. They're finally connected in a really creative way. If you're looking for some short and lusty, this is the story for you.

4.5 Stars
Christmas Bonus:

This book was super hot and somehow sweet at the same time. While I'm not usually a fan of the older guy/younger girl storylines, this one didn't skeeve me out as much as others do. It helps that Maggie doesn't act immature and that Eric acts more like her peer than her "daddy". I want more stories like this to get me through the holidays.

Naughty Under the Mistletoe:

This story was a little too insta-love for me but it's to be expected of a short story. It was a fun read

First of my festive reads for 2015!!!

Great compilation of sexy and fun-filled festive fun by four new to me authors. Each story was captivating and just what I needed in between longer, more gruelling reads!

So, if you're looking for a some holiday loving then this book is definitely one for you.

Happy holidays and keep loving the Naughty!!!

I love all these authors and these stories were fantastic! Sugar Jamison was the only new author to me when I read this Anthology and now I love her too! LOL
Beth Ciotta's story, Some Kind of Wonderful, we get not only a second chance romance but a military man as our hero! If that isn't Christmas goodness, I don't know what is!
Christmas Bonus by Lori Foster was fantabulously adorable. Loved it! There's really nothing Lori Foster ever writes that is not fantastic!

This was a fun romantic holiday anthology. I found myself liking all the stories and could not pick a favorite. From long-time favorite authors to the newer author Sugar Jamison, I read and enjoyed one story a night right before Christmas. This was cute and sassy fun.

I received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.

On the Naughty List, containing Christmas stories by romance writers Lori Foster, Carly Phillips, Beth Ciotta and Sugar Jamison is a lovely collection of sweet little holiday sugarplums, with just the right amount of naughtiness to give the stories the perfect bite of holiday spice.

I guess I'm going to start by discussing the stories individually because there is no way to classify the stories as a whole.

The story by Lori Foster was absolutely awesome! It was a great short story that made sense. Unlike most short stories you could actually believe that this story was possible in real life. Lori Foster's sort was easily the best one in the whole anthology.

The Carly Phillips short story was fine but completely unbelievable. The female lead makes a mistake in her seduction

This short story showcases the sweet and sexy romance between Eric and Maggie, two people who have hidden their feelings from each other until an encounter under the mistletoe where they both now work lets them get close and personal. I loved the sexual tension

Maggie's father passes away and leaves his company to her. She has been in love with Eric for years. Eric was her father's right hand man and he thought he'd be running the company. He has been having fantasies about Maggie for awhile but wanted to wait and let her get a little older because there is a ten year difference in their age. But when he finds a paper in the floor of her office, he can't believe it's part of a book. And the main hero is him. So he k

Christmas Bonus - Lori Foster - 2/5 stars
The tone of this story comes across as somewhat dated. Not sure specifically what it is, but maybe it's a combination of the writing style and the characterization. There's only a 10-year age difference between Eric and Maggie, but the way he talks to her makes the gap seem much larger. Also, the pacing is so fast--from zero to marriage proposal in hardly any time at all. It's a bit too fast for me. (After I finished the story, the copyright page told me

I liked this story. I thought it was cute, because we have Maggie and Eric both crushing on one another. However, it's a delicate situation. Maggie is the boss of Eric. Plus, Eric is about 10 years older than Maggie.

It’s that time of that year again when reading holiday stories can brighten up one’s day. I wanted to get started on the festivities so to speak. Plus, great authors.

This was a great Christmas collection. All of the novellas are easy, feel-good reads that keep a smile on your face and would be perfect for a winter read in front of the fireplace. I think the last two were my favourite, which surprised me after reading a few reviews and the, blurbs, but all in all, I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking to stock up on Christmas reads for December.

#1 have yourself a curvy little Christmas by sugar Jamison - this story was by far my favorite in the anthology. I would have liked this one to be a full length novel. it was touching, heartwarming, and there was good chemistry between the main characters. I would have liked to have seen all of these elements explored in full length. I give this story 4 out of 5 stars.

Eric wanted Maggie but when her father died and she became the boss, things got complicated. He didn't want it to seem like he only wanted her for the company. Maggie's deceased father had other plans for the man he knew his daughter was in love with.
It's wonderful when a father knows his daughter so well. Fantastic Christmas short by an amazing author.
