Dianne Castell Home for Christmas
LuLu Cahill is having a terrible Christmas, until she heads home to O'Fallon's Landing, where jilted groom Sebastian Moore is going through with his pre-wedding holiday bash. All he needs is LuLu to fill in for the bride..
I'm Your Santa is made up of 3 sadly lackluster and pretty unrealistic novellas. Granted holiday stories are always a bit contrived but these three really took the proverbial cake.
The Christmas Present is Lori Foster's offering and Lori is one of those authors that write smoking hot novels. There's a lot of smoking hot sex here, but the plot..oh lord. Beth's boyfriend cheats on her and she has a fling with his bff and there is a whole lot more than just sex, which strikes me as odd.
Levi has always crushed on Beth, and as the story goes on, you see that Beth has kind of had unspoken feelings for him. Her ex is a bit of a snob. Levi is a phys ed teacher. Lori gets props for having the hero be the "not rich" dude.
There's a confrontation with the ex and well....the HEA.
Next up is It's A Wonderful Life with a hot actor playing at being a pastor to get in character for his next film.
Think Impastor from TVLand.
With a horny heroine bent on seducing him.
This just in, most religions allow marriage, so some of the actions were a bit over the top. Combined with an over protective family that includes an ex CIA agent..well this is another Oye Vey story.
By the time I got to Home for Christmas, I was wondering why I was continuing on with this book. Home for Christmas is all about the having sex with a stranger without knowing his name.
Probably the worst collection of holiday romances I've read in along time. Its going to take awhile for me to want to pick up a romance novel.
