Icked this one up for the Ho Ho Ho Read a thonI ve only ever ead one other book by Shalvis and this collection eminded me why I never picked up another While the stories aren t bad they e just not my thing If I ead a contemporary omance I tend to want the conflict to stay at believable levelsThe fact that Shalvis seems to think that all her stories need a conspiracy or life and death situation annoys meThe first story Finding Mr Right was the best story in the collection Chemist Maggie Bell has a crush on the contractor working outside of her office Even though she knows he s completely wrong for her she decides to pursue him for a short term elationshipMaggie has the habit of spewing out andom facts when nervous At first I liked this but the character trait was overused to the point where it started to get annoying Even though Maggie s wikipedia knowledge started to get on my nerves I still liked her character I only wish that Shalvis had stuck with character conflict between the heroine and hero to move the plot forward ather than going the actionconspiracy outeThe second story Bah Handsome features Hope a BB owner who owes a ton of money to her loan shark step brother When one of her step brother s lackeys shows up at the BB Hope doesn t expect to be attracted to the man This one eally didn t work well for me Hope was annoyingly stubborn and I honestly didn t care at all about the elationship I also eally hated how meddlesome her friends wereThe final story Ms Humbug focuses on city planner Cami who discovers the man she s dating is banging the office assistant Disheartened she takes up with mayor and long time verbal sparring partner Matt Another story that would ve worked better for me if Shalvis hadn t taken the actionconspiracy oute While this one wasn t bad I thought the characters were the most underdeveloped compared to the first two stories Despite this I still generally enjoyed the lighthearted tone and bickering between the main charactersShalvis has an engaging writing style and her characters are fun so I can see why her novels are so popular However she s not for me If you e looking for a cute holiday ead and are a fan of Shalvis this is probably worth checking out The first two stories in this collection were terrible The writing was sloppy and felt like mediocre fanfic to me The plots were kind of idiculous 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 good 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 given to develop anything even emotely esembling a elationship I m glad 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 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. R how much they esist Ms Humbug Born ebel or overgrown man child Matt is the kind of man no woman can tame until an unexpected encounter with his nemesis Cami at the office holiday party proves there is an exception to every ul.
