Lection were terrible The writing was sloppy and felt like mediocre fanfic to me The plots were kind of ridiculous and also not at all suited to novellas The plot in the last one was also not suited to a novella but there was some ood tension and chemistry between the leads and the writing was markedly better And all three female characters were primarily motivated by the fact that they desperately wanted orgasms They were obsessed with orgasms And honestly it was one of the most off putting things for me because it made their motivations murky for me with how short of a time the characters were Lectures on Buildings given to develop anything even remotely resembling a relationship I mlad I bought this series for 99 cents as I see Jill Shalvis books advertised constantly and I am always so close to buying but this was a Land good way for me to see that her stories just aren t for me This book isn t what I d call Christmassy and it s definitely naughty than nice The stories held my interest though Story 1 was super cute stories 2 3 were ok But JILL SHALVIS so I m ok with it Jill Shalvis Christmas stories HappinessThat s really all you have to know MERRY AND BRIGHT is a Jill Shalvis orgy of her Christmas stories compiled together in one book That being said you may want to check and see if you re already read these stories before since they are reprints of older titles I haven t read them and I wasn t sure what exactly to expect since they are older works of my favourite author but once I cracked into it I realized that I had nothing to worry about ALL the stories in this anthology are wonderfully written and sweet I would definitely recommend this to Shalvis fansFINDING MR RIGHT 4 starsMaggie Bell is a sweet and smart chemist who spews useless but actually uite interesting information when she is nervous When in the presence of a bad boy named Jacob the normally composed brainiac suddenly turns intooo It s actually uite endearing and made me fall instantly in love with Maggie s character Jacob the hero is a sinful bad boy who loves talking dirty I can tell you I had absolutely no complaints about thatIn this short but scorching story Shalvis really displays her talents as a writer I don t know how she is able to create such chemistry in such a short amount of time but she nails it in this first kick off story to the anthologyThe only thing I would say is that it wraps up a little too uickly in the end but the romance is fabulousBAH HANDSOME 4 starsAnother sweet and sexy story by Shalvis takes a financially struggling BB owner named Hope and her solicitor Danny and puts them together in a snow storm With the help of Hope s friend Lori and her husband Ben they bring the two haters together until all there is is loveI adored Lori s presence in this story She added so much life and fun moments to the story Hope s character was on the anal uptight side and I didn t like how she constantly rejected Danny s offers for help In the end this story had so many LOL moments and some wonderfully cute and sweet.
