Miracles, magic and love do they exist? This is something that Quinn Lawson has been asking herself. For years she has been searching for her long lost brother. Yet every year has been a failure except this year feels different. Christmas has never been a favorite for her but this time she didn’t have Gunnery Sergeant Kevin McCaluson by her side. As a soldier on the brink of a promotion he feels lost. His whole life has been centered in the Army and for once in his life he has no idea what to do. Meeting Quinn is like a breath of fresh air and actually feeling like Christmas. Started off as a means to help her but he doesn’t want to fight the attraction anymore. Can he give her the Christmas miracle she has been waiting for all these years?
This is the first I have read from Amy J. Romine and have to say I liked it. I wanted a little bit more of Gunnery felt there was more of him than what was told. I could feel Quinns hope faltering in finding her brother yet Gunnery makes it seem okay. These two share a love that is instant but is afraid of taking a risk at the attraction. Amy did a beautiful job in showing us to never give up always have faith. Gunnery is exactly what Quinn needs to make her miracle happen. Can’t wait for more of Amy’s work. A Snowflakes Chance in Hell is perfect for the holiday always keeping the faith.
Rick Delaney has been in love with Vee. Problem is that she is his brothers girlfriend. Going away seemed to be the best thing he could do yet meeting her again and knowing the attraction still there is hard. He knows it is wrong but he wants her. Rick has done things that he regrets but for a good reason. Vee is lost and confused. Going out with Justin seemed okay first but her heart wants Rick, his brother. She knows he is bad, dangerous and sexy but can’t stay away from her. Somehow she feels Rick understands her and it scares her. The Rental is the only place where she can let go and just be free. Yet it is also a place that she gets to know the real Rick. Can she figure out what is going on before her life destructs?
I have to say this is not what I expected at all. I have to say it confused the heck out of me and wanted to feel some balance between them. Rick just seemed to aloof and disappearing all the time. Vee just didn’t seem real to me and added to the whole Rhett thing just didn’t do it for me. Sadly I have to say not a good one for me.
Morgan Pritchett is surviving barely. Since graduation and going through men like a revolving closet she is ready for for a new life. Problem is nobody wants to hire her based on her degree. She never expected though for a superstar like Sean Jaxon to be interested in her. With nothing out in the horizon working as a gofer in his sitcom seemed okay first. Yet running errands and getting humiliated is not something she thought she would go through. Knowing that Sean is there to witness her humiliation is too much. For once she wants someone to be there for her. Sean Jaxon just went through a very public break up yet he is willing to sacrifice his heart again for a woman like Morgan. He knows she is the one for him yet something about her just speaks of loneliness. On the outside she is strong, brave and passionate but he wants her whole soul. His career is taking off and he wants Morgan there all the way. People want them apart but he is determined to keep her at any cost. Can he prove to Morgan that she is loved and not alone anymore?
Once again Melissa Pearl has a hit. I have to say I didn’t think she could top Fever her previous but she proved me wrong. I love that we see more of Morgan in this one and why she is like she is well Bulletproof. Sean is the man for her and talk about the passion between them is hot. Morgan is not complete unless she has Sean for the love they share is one that scares and excites her. Loved it and want more now of Melissa Pearl.
The voice. A sweet, pure voice that is making him feel like a fever. A fever that only that woman with the voice can make him feel sane again. Somewhere out there is the woman of his dreams. He knows love exists but for a person who has been alone it feels impossible. Cole Reynolds wants what his best friend David has with his girl. Some people are lucky and he’s not one of them. Ella Simmons is beautiful, sexy and pure temptation for him. She belongs to David yet Cole can’t stop wanting her. He never thought temptation can be so near and still hopes to meet the woman with the sweet loving and enchanting voice. Ella Simmons is afraid and confused. All her life people have been guiding her in life to the right places and direction. Yet no one prepared her for Cole. Here is a man who is making her question her love with David. Not just Cole but the man in the shower. Sharing a co-ed shower seemed okay until that voice seeps in her dreams and fantasies. Two people who are lost in their own way are about to get a chance in a lifetime to make things right.
In one word Wow. This is the first I have read from Melissa Pearl and have to say Awesome. I fell for Ella easily like Cole. Here is a young woman in college with a boyfriend there for her yet seems so lost and scared. Cole seems to understand and cares for Ella which just terrifies her. The passion and feelings he has for her is like wow. Melissa Pearl really pulled me into this book and loved that Cole was a gentleman yet still loved her with his whole heart. Ella has big decision to make yet through it all the voice in the shower is one temptation hard to ignore. Totally rocked and definitely sticking with this author for future books to come.
Marlene Brodie has seen her share of pain and heartache yet something about Liam McAllister’s pain is too much. For years she has had a crush on him and now that’s he’s putting his feelings towards her out in the open she is scared. Liam is tired of waiting for something to make him snap. Yoga is the only thing that has calmed him since leaving the Army as medic combat. Being back in town is something he never expected yet it feels right. He knows he is different but one thing for sure he would never hurt Marlene. This is the year that he’s determined for his team, the Bomb Squad to win. A group of ex soldiers all in pain or loosing part of their bodies willing to do anything even yoga to get out of their losing slump. Yoga might be the one thing that brings his Marlene closer to him but he wants everything in her. Can he find out what really scares her before he loses control?
I love reading about soldiers especially the ones who feel like nothing is possible and Melissa Cutler did a beautiful job in Liam McAllister. Here is a soldier whose main mission in life is to protect and serve. One mission is all it takes to make him question himself. Now Marlene is someone who like Liam is afraid. Something in her past still gets her scared yet the attraction and losing control with Liam is beyond anything she has dreamed. Once again Melissa Cutler has pulled me in and have to say I can’t wait for another Bomb Squad book.
Sophie Claire Wright is a goal setter. There is nothing that will bring her down. Yet going to Nashville was not what she expected and now she is heading back home. It was supposed to be a time for her to recoup and find her muse again. What she didn’t expect was to get a pretend boyfriend to get her mother of her back. For years she had a crush on Jake Cooper but never did anything about it. Seeing him again and how different he has become is making
her heart pitter patter. She has no idea what is going on for it is all pretend yet she wants more. Jake Coopers dream is finally coming true. He’s waited all his life for Sophie to be with him. It might be pretend but he’s determined to make her see how right they belong together.
In one word this book was AWESOME. Once again Molli Moran has proved to this reviewer that no matter the situation she knows passion and romance. I have to say Jake Cooper is a man who finally has his dreams coming true but waits for his Sophie to see the love has always been there. Another hit for Molli and an author you definitely want to stay up with for you will never be disappointed.
So when I signed up for this book I thought alright some good hot stories by talented authors. Yet after the fifth story in this book I was left unsatisfied. All of these stories are really short give or take 20 to 50 pages for me it’s not enough. The one I thought might have gone more was the third, Captivated. Sadly for me it didn’t do it and like I said expected more from these authors. Unfortunately, Take The Heat just didn’t do it for me. There were scenes here I didn’t like to see some were hot but others just went over what I usually want in a love scene. Hopefully the other books from these authors are better.
Callie Masters knows she is not a woman fit for society but that doesn’t stop a man like Morgan falling for her. Doing tattoos is an art and one that Callie has mastered. Yet falling in love with a man opposite from her that makes her feel like a woman is sexy.

Three hot stories, three women and three hot, sexy guys just right for a cold night to warm you up. I have to say out of all the stories in this anthology was Carrie Ann Ryans. Loved it when Callie said I’m Callie Fucking Masters showing the wild no holes barred with this woman. Hot and sexy this anthology not only showing us that anything worth working for is the great prize at the end..love.

The love she feels for him not only gets her high unlike any feeling she has known but is afraid to really trust him. Can she keep this love even though her past might destroy it?
Once again Ava Miles has done it again in another Dare Valley book that is perfect for the holiday. I loved that Terrance was not only sexy, passionate but trying so hard to be good. My favorite scene has to be the dance off between him and Elizabeth hilarious and hot. One thing I love the most about Ava Miles books is you see the others characters from her previous books in their lives like Rhett, Rye and even Natalie which I am waiting for her story now. Elizabeth is one lucky woman for she has a family and a hot chef falling to her every whim. Hot, sexy and passionate that will leave you root for their love to continue.
