Book Description:

All He Wants for Christmas... by Jill Shalvis

EMT Dustin Mauer has one Christmas wish: to make tough firefighter Cristina Lewis realize she's in love with him. And he's using his considerable bedside charm to convince her!

My Grown-Up Christmas List by Jacquie D'AlessandroToni Rizzo is done with obnoxious firefighters. But flirtatious fireman Brad Griffin is managing to put himself at the top of her holiday list--one steamy kiss at a time!

Up on the Housetop by Jamie Sobrato

When Dr. Lorelei Gibson gets stuck on her roof half-naked, she's mortified when she's rescued by hunky firefighter Ryan Quinn--her high school heartbreak! Until she learns he'd like to get naked with her...


What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
All these stories were good in their own regard. They all seems like they fit together as one series despite their different authors. I can't say any of the stories were excellent but they were worth the read and good for short stories.

I would say My Grown-Up Christmas List was my favorite with Brad going after Toni and asking her out until she said yes. Very cute scenes in that story.

Oops. Change that I will. *Yoda impression*

That is sad. I've only really read two and that is sad for me.

sorry. I'll try to read 3 books by the end of the year ;) *do picture books count?*

LOL Yep they count! Why not, right? So do comics or graphic novels which means I need to get my hands on the Castle stuff.

Ever read the Castle Derek Storm or Nikki Heat books? Those are on my list. Got to get to them.

I have two Winnie the Pooh books to read ;) Well 3 but one's just a popup book with pictures and stuff *very childish* but the pictures are GORGEOUS!

I have all the Castle books *heat wave, naked heat, heat rises and frozen heat* (have 2 copies of heat wave actually)... *wink wink*

I have yet to get a hold of the graphic novels of his though.
