All the Trimmings by Caitlyn Willows
When Chrissy agreed to housesit for her grandparents and prep the place for Christmas, she never imagined the icing on her cookies would be the twins next door. But they are hard-loving men who don’t play for keeps, and she's never played at all…until now.
Joe and Jess crave their neighbors’ cute granddaughter more than they can stand. She’s definitely a game changer they never imagined, blowing into their lives like the approaching winter storm, stirring up their wildest fantasies and making them want with an intensity hot enough to melt the fake icicles draped around her Grandma’s house.
Christmas with all the trimmings. Those were Grandma’s instructions. And while Chrissy knows she wasn’t referring to Chrissy laid out for Joe and Jess’s pleasure—or they hers—Grandma’s got some explaining of her own to do. Like how she knew about those dimples on the twin’s perfect backsides.
Christmas Candie by Nona Raines
Aidan Callahan loves Christmas. His family makes it a big celebration and he does his best to carry on the tradition. Every ornament on his huge Christmas tree has a story and holds a special memory. He’s been hooking up for six months with Val Stenzler and would like to get closer to her, including sharing his love of Christmas. But aside from their hot sex sessions, she holds him at arm’s length. What’s the problem?
Val hates Christmas. The most devastating, humiliating event of her life happened at Christmastime two years ago, and she’s still trying to get past it. There’s no room for fruitcake or mistletoe in her life. As far as she’s concerned, the holiday season can’t pass quickly enough.
Christmas suddenly becomes a lot more interesting when Val and Aidan meet Candie Hurley. She’s as sweet as her name, as sparkly as tinsel and as mysterious as the Northern Lights. Aidan and Val both fall under her spell, but will the night they spend with her bring them closer together or tear their relationship apart?
Gingerbread Photography by Rachell Nichole 
Walker Savidge is one of FDNY’s Finest. He’s also the only openly bisexual fireman in the city. But his boyfriend, Ben Cook, is still very much in the closet, and not comfortable with his own sexual needs and desires. Every time they get close in public, Ben pulls away. Frustrated with his partner, Walker devises a plan to help Ben break out of his shell. The owner of Gingerbread Photography has been photographing the FDNY Firefighters for their calendar for years. She’s professional and sweet, and Walker knows she’ll immediately put Ben at ease. Now all he has to do is convince his lover to do a private x-rated, Xmas photo shoot.
Ben knows Walker is fed up with his hang-ups, but he can’t seem to help it. Every time he thinks he might be okay with announcing to the world that he also likes guys, the horrors of his high school locker room stop him. Growing up in a small community that wasn’t always supportive of homosexuality has forced Ben to hide that half of himself. He’d always dated girls before moving to the Big Apple and finding Walker. Now he’s trying to reconcile the two halves of himself and give Walker what he deserves. So when Walker suggests a photo shoot, Ben agrees, though the idea makes him squirm. He knows the week of Christmas break will be the best time for the shoot. He’s told his parents he won’t be home this year for Christmas, so he doesn’t have to answer awkward questions about his love life, or break Walker’s heart by not inviting him home for the holidays.
Lexie Ginger Rosamond is trying to survive as a NY photographer. But she’s dreading the upcoming holidays and her photo schedule. She’s reluctant to take on a last minute meeting with Walker and his boyfriend, but finally can’t deny the sultry voice of one of the sexiest firemen she’s ever met. But when Walker shows up at her studio with Ben, a young man she’s already met, and kissed, she doesn’t know what to do. As the photo shoot heats up, Walker jumps into the photos with Ben, and it’s almost more than she can bear. Until the two men ask her to join them in front of the camera instead of behind it. Tempted by their heat, and deciding maybe she can give herself a special treat this Christmas, Lexie agrees

Always by Shyla Colt-review

Title: Always
Author: Shyla Colt
Pages: 156
Published:Hot Ink Press (August 27, 2014)

Amazon, BookDepository

My review:

     Long time Cora was in love with Dallas, he was so close and so distance to her. All she could do is to dream that “maybe someday”. Her 21st birthday was close and Dallas wants to organized some party for her; when he tells her what he planed she disapproved that and tells him that all she wanted is to be with him, not some big parties. On Cora’s birthday Dallas takes her out and gives her the most wanted birthday gift- him! From that day Cora and Dallas became they-a couple.

    The author give us this story for Cora and Dallas, mixing present and past; mixing Cora’s thoughts and Dallas’s, so we have the picture of their life together, of their love life. The plot is interesting, but there are many curses, f-words and some explicit scenes that I don’t liked so much. To be honest I don’t like that scene with Cora and her best friend Rowan (FF).
     Cora is interesting character, sweet and honest. She allows to be bringing in some situations from her naivety and love. Dallas is rebel and I love that kind of guys, he was lost in that picture of himself and acts as irresponsible man.

     This book is good; I rated it with 3, because plot nether characters make me to think about them.

 This book was part of the Book Tour.
My rating: 3/5(good book)

The Stream by A.R.Silverberry-review

Title:The Stream
Published: May 19th 2014 by Tree Tunnel Press

Author’s page:

My review:

     Wend and his parents were floating in the stream, which was pretty normal and peaceful usually, but the storm come out and made the stream wild. That day Wend lost his parents and he was just five years old. Dealing with the wild stream he just wants to escape to monster waterfall, which everyone talks about but no one see it. From his childhood Wend floats through his youth till his manhood. Stream is his lifeline with all rises and falls, with happiness and sadness, obstacles and traps.

   Stream is very deep book, philosophical and psychological work.  Silverberry creates this Wend’s world; stream as Wend’s life. Stream is deep and wild, endless, full with obstacles. When stream takes you there is not coming back, just floating right forward.

Icy Pretty Love by L.A.Rose-review

Title: Icy Pretty Love
Author: A.L.Rose
Genre: chick lit, Romance
Pages: 250 (kindle)
Published:November 15th 2014 (first published November 14th 2014)

Author’s page:


My review:
     What would do if you have fiancée that you don’t know and she is an escort girl?
     Rae is Georgette, Georgette is Rae, she is call-girl, I mean Rae is call girl, but Georgette is pure and untouched, hm. Let me explain to you Rae must to pretend that she is fiancée to one businessman in Paris, for that purpose she is picks that name Georgette. That businessman Cohen is cold and callous man, very unpleasant person, he hates everyone. How she could be around this awful man for one mouth? Oh, believe me she will manage and better…
I was looking forward to start reading this book, now when I read it I want more, more, more! I adore L.A.Rose writing style, her books amazed me. 

     There is a great female main characters who are strong and brave, made me laugh even cry. Icy Pretty Love is perfect packed book as James Games, with everything that I want: it’s a chick-lit, it’s made me laugh and there is romance.

     Everyone will likes Rae or Georgette, because she is brave and she doesn’t shame from what she is, cause life was cruel with her, but she is very pleasant person and good and sensitive. She pretends that is someone else so easily, but deep down she is great person.
      Cohen is cruel and hard man, he hates everyone and everything and no one could change him. He doesn’t understand what love is and is seams never will. He is good look but very unpleased man. I like both of them Rae and Cohen, they are as real persons to me.

My rating:5/5(amazing book)
