Well done Cavill.

This was a cute, short read. It was fun catching up with Logan and Clay.

However...this book was plagued by the same long-winded-ness that the first one suffered from. Now, while that worked for me in the first one - being that, although filled with A LOT of superfluous scenes, it was at least also filled with a lot of substance - I cannot really say the same about this one.

In fact, the superfluousness in the first book, while redundant, at least had a point. In this book though, there were scenes that were really just filler, added nothing to the story, and didn't even feature anything even remotely entertaining.

For example, I really don't need to read - in detail - about how Logan went into a hotel, checked in, talked to the desk clerk, got their keys and directions to their room and then returned to Clay...who was asleep in the car the whole time this was going on.

I mean, really, what's the point of including this boring, pointless scene?

If I wanted to read about the ins and outs of daily life, I could look at these:




Or read this:




Then again, at least in that, Jane likes dick.

But I digress.

There were a couple other things that irked me in this, but they aren't important enough to mention.

Otherwise, this was a cute little holiday read and I enjoyed reading abut Logan and Clay again. I really loved them in their book.

Christmas fun

This was quite short and features Clay and Logan finding snow for Clay, for Christmas. It's more of their D/s dynamic and bit of being in public as Dom and sub. Not public play though. It's still essentially sex scenes. I would have liked to see more of their time and a solid conclusion. It ended rather abruptly. I can't say I felt too much Christmas in it. I'm thinking it might be a bridge to another story for them in the future.

Hidden connection between this story and the novel where the full history of the MCs is covered

MMRG Xmas Bingo 2016: team 07-"Naughty"

Week 3.5: "Decorations on Cover"

I started this book on Friday, the day that the category was called.

After I selected this story, I thought, hmm, 52 pages? A piece of cake!

Well it took me until Sunday to finish this because it was very "put downable," hence the 2-star rating.

This seemed more than 52 pages.

Also, there is some sneaky marketing going on with this title.

This xmas story features MCs from the author's 585 page novel--The Sergeant, that features these two ranking members of a swat-team, falling in love and entering into a D/s relationship.

However, there isn't any information given to the unwary reader that the full history of the two MCs of this 52 p story is told in an earlier and longer book.

This stor, however, can work as a stand alone but I couldn't find any info to indicate that this xmas story was a part of a series.

The fact that there is an attempt to hide the connection between this story and the novel to get readers to buy the story if they don't know about the novel--I really don't like that kind of duplicity.

The story itself didn't really grab me.

Thanks for the Christmas story!

This was a really good Christmas present from Miss Tomlinson. If you are a fan of The Sergeant you will absolutely love this short, but hit Christmas story.

This was short but sweet....and rather sexy. I enjoyed seeing these characters in a holiday setting, though I think it would've been better if it was a bit longer, a bit more developed, especially considering the setting. I understand wanting to write something short for the holidays, but when you put them in a specific setting, I would've loved to see more of the 'activities' that were planned there. But, it was still a good short.

Points off for spelling and grammatical errors.

I really love this set of book was able to get the 1st 3 back to back to read. Now upset I have to wait till pay day to get more. These have really drawn me in. Such really good charters and story line, and don't forget the really hot moments either! Can't wait to get the next ones.

A very entertaining series. 5 books out with 3 of them (2 novels and 1 novella) focusing on Clay and Logan. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the other 2 books about their teammates (Sam/Ryan and Miguel/Hector). Overall a great series with sexy MC's and lovely stories with some drama and angst but a lot of them working together.

Definitely best read in order.

Omg, such a fun read!!! A Christmas vacation at a hotel that caters to the BDSM community. Loved seeing this side of Logan and Clay: snow ball fight, attempting to watch a movie, and torturing Clay a little in public. Really worth the read.

This was an ok short set in the Cuffs, Collars, and Love world. I was a bit disappointed that nothing really happened here; it just just a scene in the life of Clay and Logan.

Two rough guys can be so great together

A great addition to an already great read. I really really hope there's more coming between these two and their team. This short story let you peak into both Clays and Logan's heads again. While on a short vacation to a place they could really let lose with their relationship. You read watching them get even closer with each other. They don't disappoint except the story was too short (lol). Get this book it's worth the pennies spent, you'll be wishing for more as well.

I really enjoyed meeting up with Logan and Clay again but I'm always somewhat disappointed in novellas because they rarely give much to the reader beyond that brief glimpse. This is no different. Plus, we don't even get to finish out the vacation with the boys and/or I would have liked to know what they got each other for Christmas. Even this seemed to have unfinished business and I really didn't like that. I love these guys and their story but give me something new that is stimulating.

Almost 4 stars

This was a short and sweet novella. I actually liked it a lot. But having read the other books in the series, it technically wasn't as well written as the others (I'm not sure why). I was also kind of bummed the only D/s interaction in the story didn't involve Logan and Clay. Still enjoyed it through and there were parts where my cheeks hurt from smiling so much so three stars.

Merry Christmas Sir

Love Logan and Clay. Their struggle to get to where they are in this novella was one amazing ride. They deserve it. Loved seeing Logan let loose but really love his constant attention to making sure Clay is happy. Can't wait for more from Christa.

The Sergeant: A Christmas Story

I just loved this short story about Clay and Logan. These two have been through a lot of up and downs. Their relationship is strong and so is their respect and love for each other. I can not wait to see if their is another book in this series. Erin

Only bad thing this book was extremely short.
What to say about the the rest, it was 5 star HOT.
Tho if you haven't read the main book, I would guess that this one wouldn't make sense.
But if you want a HOT and fast follow up of the main book, here it is. And what a merry Christmas.
