One of these things is not like the others...
I like ALL three novellas, very much but while Hot Toy is hilarious and very light on the romance,
Christmas Boner, er, Bonus, and Naughty Under the Mistletoe are explicitly erotic romances. So, if
you're like me and like to mix it up, you'll enjoy this set; if you prefer to enjoy your pleasures one at a
time, you may be jarred by the combination.
Hot Toy by Jennifer Crusie
Trudy Maxwell is determined to score her five year-old nephew THE hot toy of the season, the Major
MacGuffin. WITH toxic waste. As she roots through the shelves of the messy local toy store she is
joined by allies/adversaries: Nolan Mitchell, professor of Chinese literature and jerk who dated Trudy
three times and then didn't call her again; and Reese Daniels, her father's onetime research assistant.
Trudy's persistence pays off, somewhat; she locates one of LAST year's MacGuffins (with gun, without
toxic waste). Both men seems interested in dating her - or do they just want to grab her MacGuffin?
The conversations that Trudy carries on while in line to pay, with both men, other shoppers, AND her
sister via phone, all simultaneously, had me laughing out loud. The bizarre spy-theme secret code in
the doll boxes was over the top ridiculous, but then, the whole scrambling for THE hot toy at Christmas
is over the top ridiculous.
Christmas Bonus by Lori Foster is also featured in a collection called All I Want for Christmas
Eric Bragg had disguised his lust for his boss's sexy daughter, beginning when Maggie hung around
the office at age 17. He always meant to make a move on her, in a few years when the time was right,
perhaps when he himself took over managing the company. He didn't count on his boss dying and
leaving the company to Maggie, when she was only 22. Maggie doesn't want the company, she wants
Eric to look at her like a desirable WOMAN, and works out a plan to seduce him, starting with him
being designated to help her plan the company Christmas party.
Eric decides to start the party early, when he finds out that at least on paper, Maggie is more
experienced than she seems. Hot hot hot.
Naughty Under the Mistletoe by Carly Phillips is also featured in a collection called Naughty or Nice?
Lawyer Toni Larson has decided to seduce her colleague Stephan Corbin, since she finds him
attractive and she's about to move to a different office location, so it won't become uncomfortable
between them, whether it's a fling or something that lasts a little longer. She lures a man she thinks is
Stephan under the mistletoe, but the sizzling kiss she gets from his twin brother Max blows all
thoughts of whats-his-name out of her mind.
Includes an incredibly hot game of strip pool. I'm not a huge fan of insta-love, but the author pulls it off
Applause to the authors for always wrappin' it like a present (i.e., condoms) in the sex scenes.
