Dy hero but the heroine was too bitchy for my tastes Ms Humbug my favorite of the three Hate to love stories seem to be doing t for me lately Jill Shalvis Christmas stories HappinessThat s really all you have to know MERRY AND BRIGHT I Am Dumbo is a Jill Shalvis orgy of her Christmas stories compiled togethern one book That being said you may want to check and see Tragedy, the Greeks, and Us if you re already read these stories before since they are reprints of older titles I haven t read them and I wasn t sure what exactly to expect since they are older works of my favourite author but once I crackednto Wounded Planet it I realized that I had nothing to worry about ALL the storiesn this anthology are wonderfully written and sweet I would definitely recommend this to Shalvis fansFINDING MR RIGHT 4 starsMaggie Bell The Parade is a sweet and smart chemist who spews useless but actually uitenteresting Moving Violations information when shes nervous When T. S. Eliots Dialectical Imagination in the presence of a bad boy named Jacob the normally composed brainiac suddenly turnsnto goo It s actually uite endearing and made me fall Smilodon instantlyn love with Maggie s character Jacob the hero The Fall of the Romanovs is a sinful bad boy who loves talking dirty I can tell you I had absolutely no complaints about thatIn this short but scorching story Shalvis really displays her talents as a writer I don t know how shes able to create such chemistry Otherworldly Politics in such a short amount of time but she nailst Black Soundscapes White Stages in this first kick off story to the anthologyThe only thing I would says that Wholly Unraveled it wraps up a little too uicklyn the end but the romance Bicycle Utopias is fabulousBAH HANDSOME 4 starsAnother sweet and sexy story by Shalvis takes a financially struggling BB owner named Hope and her solicitor Danny and puts them togethern a snow storm With the help of Hope s friend Lori and her husband Ben they bring the two haters together until all there s s loveI adored Lori s presence A Cultural History of Animals and Their Meat in this story She added so much life and fun moments to the story Hope s character was on the anal uptight side and I didn t like how she constantly rejected Danny s offers for help In the end this story had so many LOL moments and some wonderfully cute and sweet moments as well makingt a perfect read for the holidaysMS HUMBUG 4 starsWhat happens when you put a recently betrayed woman with a rebel Epistemology as Theology in nice shoes Explosive chemistry that s what Shalvis doest again with this short story featuring Cami and MattThis story felt the shortest of them all but Fire Horses it still packs uite the punch The banter between Cami and Matts so entertaining to read that I was smiling from ear to ear There s just so much heart Edoardo Sanguineti in Shalvis s stories that when you add the Christmas element tot all Dkfindout! Space Travel it just makes for a delicious treat fit for the holidaysReview copy provided by publisher The first two storiesn this collection were terrible The writing was sloppy and felt like mediocre fanfic to me The plots were kind of ridiculous and also not at all suited to novellas The plot Las aventuras de Huckleberry Finn (PENGUIN CLSICOS) in the last one was also not suited to a novella but there was some good tension and chemistry between the leads and the writing was markedly better And all three female characters were primarily motivated by the fact that they desperately wanted orgasms They were obsessed with orgasms And honestlyt was one of the most off putting things for me because Viva México it made their motivations murky for me with how short of a time the characters were given to develop anything even remotely resembling a relationship I m glad I bought this series for 99 cents as I see Jill Shalvis books advertised constantly and I am always so close to buying but this was a good way for me to see that her stories just aren t for me Three cute Christmas short stories Don t know why but I go through these fazes throughout the year where I want to read Christmas storiesFinding Mr Wright Chemist Maggie Bell finds that a man she knewn high sc. R how much they resist Ms Humbug Born rebel or overgrown man child Matt RHS The Magic and Mystery of Trees is the kind of man no woman can tame until an unexpected encounter with his nemesis Cami at the office holiday party proves theres an exception to every rul.
