Thanks to NetGalley, I was allowed to read the new Heating Up the Holidays three story book that will get you in the holiday spirit. This is a book that I couldn’t wait to read because the first story in the book is by one of my favorite writers, Lisa Renee Jones. I had not read either of the other two authors but must say that I enjoyed both.
The first story is Play With Me by Lisa Renee Jones. If you have ever read anything by Ms. Jones, you know she is a great writer. This story does not disappoint. Who can go wrong with a story about a dominating sexy CEO who has a dark past. Add to that his new executive secretary who is a journalist by trade along with a suspense storyline of someone trying to bring down the CEO and you have one good story. The story will keep you on your toes and wanting to read more…and it is pretty hot to boot. Oh and I forgot to mention that this story is based around Thanksgiving….got sidetracked on the sexy CEO!
The second story, Snowfall, by Mary Ann Rivers is a different type of story than the first. This story is the Christmas story and is a heartwarming story of a young scientist who is losing her eyesight. The story has an erotic side when the character’s online relationship with a photography enthusiast turns sexy. The main story is with the character and her occupational therapist who is trying to teach her to accept her impending disability and learn to live with a possible future of blindness. The story gets a little wordy along the way but is a truly sweet tale of accepting what life gives you so that you can be open to the love that comes your way.
The last story in the book is the New Year’s story. After Midnight by Serena Bell starts at a New Year’s eve party. Both of the main characters are at the party after having recently lost their significant other in ways that marked their lives. After a super sexy kiss, they both think they are about to have a one night stand with each other when circumstances intervene. This story is about the path that is taken to bring them back together, along with allowing each of them to grow and understand that they are each worth having the love of another person. Did I mention it is also seriously hot? This was my first Serena Bell read but I will definitely be reading her in the future.
This is a great book and I enjoyed all of the stories. Definitely a five star read that everyone should read for themselves!
