Having to work on Christmas Eve is bad. Having to work the graveyard shift on Christmas Eve is worse. Having to work the graveyard shift on Christmas Eve when your life is a mess? Well, that’s some BS. There doesn’t seem to be a Merry Christmas in store for Sunday Marks, but maybe one call can change that.

A very good holiday read. Naughty and nice.
Wow! This is the first novella, I've read in a long time, that actually completed the amazing story! It had a beginning, a middle, and a completed end.
Sunday Marks is tired of being just a booty call to Austin. When he suggests its because she doesn't "ask" for more, Sunday lays his ignorant a$$ out! Sunday informs him that if a man really loves his lady, she shouldn't have to "ask" him for anything. Anything she wants or needs should be automatically taken care of if he is observant, and

Merry Uuumh, Oooh, that was good!

Okay, ummh this was a very good short, sweet Christmas love story. I need Justin to visit my office and break me off a little Holiday Cheer. Sunday left her receptionist sight happy and bright. Loved it. You'll need to get your own....

This was a cute short. I’m glad Justin had a plan in motion, I was a little nervous. Sunday was not having it. Black Love

I really loved this Christmas story it had everything I wanted. Sunday basically wasnt too happy that she had to work on Christmas eve. And on top of that mad that a guy who she really loved and supported (Justin) had Sunday feeling like she didn't matter. Justin went out his way to not only prove he will always be there for Sunday and love her through it all, it ended in a very happy way.

Alexandria House is great with the pen! I now want to read her other series she has out. I loved how easy

Merry Christmas, Baby is a sexy short story that takes place on Christmas Eve. Sunday has to work on Christmas Eve but what’s worse is that her relationship with her long-time boyfriend, Justin, is on the rocks. All of that changes with one phone call.

I really enjoyed Justin and Sunday. Justin was trying to get back in Sunday’s good graces and Sunday wasn’t having it. The push and pull between the two was realistic of people who’ve been together for awhile and the communication lapses and one

Cute shirt and stillngave a strong sista

Sunday was not in a sunny disposition in this Christmas eve. She always stuck working the graveyard shift alone. She missed her man or was he. She had no heat in the winter. And did not like her job.

Justin was in the dog house but he knew how to make up for it.

A quickie from Alexandria brought the goods. MERRY CHRISTMAS Sunday and Justin and congratulations.

Steamy short

This steamy short stories is a couple of scenes between Sunday, a down on her luck hospital switchboard operator, who is also a chronic overthinking, and the guy she’s in love with but feels doesn’t love her as much. I thought this was okay. Mostly it’s steamy. I would read a long form of this.

What a great start for the New Year! Thinking that your love life is over because your feeling neglected and frustrated. Then finding out that there were plans set in motion to be with you not just on Christmas and New Years but everyday of your lives. This was sensual, nice and full of a little voyerism. Great Read! What A Night!

Good quick read

This story was a good quick read. Sunday was fed up with things in her personal life as well as her professional. However, Justin wasn't about to let go. He found a way to make her Christmas very merry.

Another “this should be a full novel” short story. Alexandria has the unique ability of making her short stories read like a scene from a movie...the reader becomes absorbed in the moment, but is left wondering what happened before at minimum...after if they’re lucky.

Short and Sweet

This was a good holiday short that took a bad day and turned it into a memorable and joyous one. So glad that Justin not only stepped up but finally conveyed his feelings and intentions--it seemed that Sunday was overdue for a break and a breakthrough.

Ms. House, Ms.House

Yes I love this story.
I would recommend it to any one who enjoys good story telling. I gave it 5 stars because sex aside (which I enjoyed reading) it is genuinely a good story. And a reliable one as well. Well done Ms. House

Finding love in a hopeless place

Justin & Sunday story was a refreshing read. It tells a story of a love that needs to be restored. I loved that Justin laid down the law & brought a smile to Sunday's Christmas morning

Perfect for the holiday!

Short holiday read, with just the right amount of heat, angst, and a happily every after! Christmas time is perfect for short reads, with so much going on this time of year! Good story!

I knew I was going to like this story when I saw that it was happening in my home state of Mississippi. My only complaint was that it came and went too fast. I want more!

So cute!!!!

Omg! This story was so incredibly cute. I found myself smiling every time Sunday and Justin talked or were in the room together. It was surely a Merry Christmas, Baby, indeed. Great read!

Super cute and quick read! I loved the relationship between Sunday and Justin; it wasn't typical. This story was sweet with just the right amount of spice.
