"3.5 stars"
Making Waves by Donna Kauffman – I can't say that I'm terribly enthusiastic about boats and/or sailing, so for that reason alone Making Waves didn't fully resonate with me. I've never seen a yacht up close, so I have no idea what one looks like, especially inside. Unfortunately the author's descriptions left something to be desired on that count, making it difficult for me to imagine the setting. I also thought that her balance between dialog and prose was off kilter,/>

I won a copy on Goodreads Firstreads.

This is a collection of 6 romance stories wriiten by different authors and all set at Christmas time. All are takes on love at first sight, even if it takes awhile for the couple to realize it. I would describe most of the stories as explicit but not crude, grahic, or overly detailed. The sex scenes get the point across without going into too much detail. Most even advocate safe sex. All of the stories are sprinkled with a nice amount of humor. Th

Glad that I decided to read this before sending it on. Great stories. The one that I enjoyed the least was the MJD one which is surprising as she is the only author who I have read before. Her story just did not have the substance that the others did. Granted each story was a lust/love at first sight story, but they were fun and told good stories. Definitely steamy enough for a cold winter night. lol
Great anthology. Gonna go check out some of the other books out by these authors.

Six steamy holiday stories (yacht cook, cartoon writer, 2 snowstorms, Santa cop, & model) none of which was believable although I read them all. Maybe too many stories for one book. Friends turning lovers did too good a job explaining why they were only friends and I didn't buy into the new love in a few days.

03/25/13: This review is for all 4 stories that make up Donna Kauffman's Men of Rogues Hollow ... ALL FANTASTIC. I loved reading about all four brothers finding their happily ever after. If I had to rate the stories from best forward, I would put Austin as my favorite then Tag, third comes Burke and last is Jace BUT all 4 stories were 5 stars in their own way.....

-Whooooa raunchy lol. Each story was so unrealistic, they made me laugh! It's like, "Nice to meet you, let's have sex!"
+"You, Actually" and "Snow Day" were my 2 fave stories because they were more relaistic!
+It was kinda Christmasy and I liked reading it during the holidays. Definitely heated things up;) lol!

The first story was just ridiculous. The 4th one said something about a character named Tony on the book cover and I never even saw that name in the whole story! Some of them were okay but overall it just really wasn't worth the time to read it.

I'm uusually not wild about anthologies, especially when a story is really enjoyable and you wish it could be a full-fledged book. I borrowed this book as it's part of one of Monroe's series that I want to start.

Somehow I wasn't in the mood for this book, but kept reading and it was an okay read. A little more sex than I usually like, but okay. I'm not big on anthologies anyway, so I guess I just liked the seasonal topic. (This was a library book.)

Erin McCarthy's story far outdid the others. Everything she writes is funny and touching. The others ranged from boring to just OK.

Decent anthology, but not a keeper. I liked Erin McCarthy's story the best.

Collection of Christmas themed short stories. Ok, but nothing that stands out.
I don't rate anthologies. Some good ones, and some not so good with no typos/editing issues noticed.

Only read the Maryjanice Davidson story. Characters unrelated to any of her series, but cute and funny just the same.

I really enjoyed these short stories, especially Nancy Warren's Let It Snow and Erin McCarthy's You, Actually. I thought they were sweet and sexy and would highly recommend this book!!

So I'm 4 stories in and want to quit. The only one I found I liked so far is Erin McCarthy's "You, Actually".
The last 1 of the last 3 stories was good, "Silver Bella" otherwise not so much.

I read this as part of an exploration of the genre of romance. I'm pretty sure this wasn't the best sample.
