"3.5 stars overall" He Sees You When You're Sleeping by Lori Foster – I thought that He Sees You When You're Sleeping was a little light on the plot and character development. It is basically all about the hero, Booker, finding out that he is finally free of a past romantic entanglement. He then immediately sets out to get the heroine, Frances, into his bed, and a whole lot more. I normally enjoy the friends to lovers theme, but even though Booker and Frances had been

He Sees You When You're Sleeping by Lori Foster
3.5 stars

Booker Dean has been with his girlfriend, Judith for 5 months but in the past two months he's fallen for his neighbor Frances. When he finds out that his girlfriend has recently propositioned his brother Axel, he's ecstatic. Ecstatic because he's merely been holding off on pursuing Frannie until he could let Judith down easy.

Frances wants one thing for Christmas but her hunky neighbor Booker already has a girlfriend. So she's stunned when

Read for the Lori Foster book but I read book two as well. Probably won't read any more of them.
Very short faced paced story. Not sure how I feel overall, felt like it was a case of musical beds.
Booker, stupid name, is told by his brother that his current girlfriend Judith felt him up. This gives him the reason to break up with Judith, which he hasn’t had the balls to do for the last month, even though he knows his neighbour/friend Faith is his ONE a
What a fun and glorious little collection. Jingle Bell Rock is filled with six wonderful novellas that remind you that around Christmas time…anything is possible.

These are incredibly light-hearted and fun novellas. They feature people from all walks of life. People with different goals, desires and love. The thing that unites them all? Love and the festive season.

This year, I really needed something to get me feeling a little more of that holiday spirit. So I picked up a collection of anthologie

Very sexy, steamy collection of short stories for the holidays. Some are better than others naturally, but I enjoyed "Turning up the heat", because of the plot twist, the most. I was surprised to find this was a library book (picked it up at a library book sale) but it had never been read, its spine had never been cracked. All I could think was if someone had read it and passed the word on how sexy the stories were it would have had a waiting list for check outs.
Because the stories are short I'

He Sees You While You're Sleeping-- **

I don't know why I expected this to be good. But it wasn't. In fact it was kinda creepy. The hero's brother goes after his one day old ex-girlfriend. Idk. Just was really icky.

All She Wants For Christmas-- ****

I liked this one. I feel like I shouldn't for some reason but I did. Both H/h were nice people.

Turning Up the Heat-- ****

This story started really weird. I thought it was kinda creepy. Having sex with a stranger? How does that turn into a romance? But

Just finished reading this Christmas collection, which includes works by Lori Foster, Donna Kaufmann, Susan Donovan, Janelle Denison, Alison Kent, and Nancy Warren. This collection was great. There were dramatic parts, some very funny comedic parts. Basically, I laughed, I cried and was very happy by the end of the book.

Foster is a reliable favorite of mine, but this one was even better than I thought it would be. Of the authors, Donovan’s and, surprisingly, Warren’s were my favorites. These wer

Last year, I read only one story from this collection. I loved it - it was so cute (Donovan's story).

This year, I read the rest and loved them. And this Anthology packs a lot of meat - like 5 or 6 stories. And it's a nice little collection of stories, I liked or tolerated all of them!

Sure, there were some questionable bits. Maybe I'm jaded, but when the sexy dr. everyone says they've slept with turns around and tells me that those are all rumours, I might not necessarily take that as the full tr
I read the Janelle Denison's short story in this anthology because it's part of her Wilde series and I am this read in order freak. Short and kinda sweet. A lot less "fantasy play" than her two previous stories in the series. Her male character is actually interesting and not annoying. Her female character is a bit too ordinary but still has the red flame hair that all spunky female character need in these kinda stories. The set up is cliché but Denison makes it work. I enjoyed it for what it wa ...more

12/19/12: so far so good...Denison's story is once again fantastic...too short for my taste, but good none the less :) I will read the rest when I finish her WIlde series...
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 sto

Very enjoyable anthology of Christmas romance. Definitely a bit steamy, sometimes a bit unrealistic, often a bit of fun. I always enjoy a good anthology and even though I always say that I don't read 'romance', I really seem to enjoy it when I do.

While some of the stories seem to be parts of series they all seem to be able to stand alone as well. Normally I am anal about reading series in order, but it did not bother me to read these particular stories.

This collection of 6 HOT Christmas stories was a fun read. The stories included 2 reunions after 10 years; an office battle that heats up in the bedroom; a next door neighbor that becomes something more; a solitary Christmas Eve that changes with the arrival of the furnace repairman and a wished for Christmas present that explores some hidden truths. All the stories were sexy and well presented. I liked Nancy Warren's the best, but all were well done. ...more

This is an anthology book that I had high hopes for. I was really disappointed in all of the stories except for the the Lori Foster story.

I would recommend this story to anyone who is looking for something that is a really quick and easy read that doesn't require much thought.

The stories weren't bad, they just didn't catch my fancy once I started reading them. Lori Foster's story saved the book, for me anyway.
Lori Foster's characters are so human and natural you feel like these are real people. She is also very funny. I loved Turning Up The Heat by Susan Donovan. Who wouldn't love a husband who makes all your fantasies come true, year after year, so elaborately. Dennisen, Kauffman, Kent and Warren wrote great stoies as well. ...more

Steamy group of six short stories to heat up the holidays ... first two enjoyable tales of taking friendship a step further, Susan Donovan's was just plain fun, following two reunions had me dwelling more on years missed, and the last one had me smiling throughout ... I'll be looking for more by Nancy Warren.

There are a couple of stories in this book that I would give 5 stars to. And then, there are a couple that bring that score way down for me. I won't say which ones fall under which category, because it's not the fault of the authors. I just have my own preference about what type of stories I like to read. Overall, I'd have to give an average of 3 stars (since I can't do 3.5). ...more

Enjoyed these Christmas romances. The Lori Foster story was a reprint, which was a letdown, but all of the rest of the stories were new to me. The last two were my favorites.

For an anthology, this was surprisingly good. The stories were very short (about 50 pages each), but some of them were very sexy. I didn't finish the last one (by Nancy Warren) - people who hate each other & then fall in love. Blah. But the rest were good. ...more

I got a lot of laughs and giggles out of this novel. It was truly one of the best anthologies I have had the opportunity to read. I would most definitely recommend it, my cheeks still hurt from laughing and smiling so much!

I don't know about you, but when I think "Christmas", my mind immediately jumps to "sex".....

But here were 6 short stories about Christmas & sex, all fun & well-written. It's definitely a better choice than Fifty Shades!
