UNLEASHED by Donna Kauffman
Emma Lafferty has just landed her biggest job to date - pet-sitting for a multi-millionaire in his remote, palatial mansion over Christmas. What she doesn't expect is her peace to be interrupted by the billionaire's rather distracting and delicious great-nephew Trevor whose reasons for being there are definitely suspicious. And that's before the pair get trapped together in the house during a snowstorm.
An enjoyable story with two likeable characters and a romance that you can suspend belief and just believe in. While being wintry and a perfect story for a night in by the fire, it wasn't at all Christmassy and I was rather irritated to find that the 'great mystery', which was the whole reason for Trevor being there, was actually just the premise for another of Donna Kauffman's books.
FINDING MR RIGHT by Jill Shalvis
Brilliant scientist Maggie Bell is an absolute dating disaster, always managing to pick men who turn out to be Mr Wrong. Sexy contractor Jacob Wahler, despite being gorgeous and sweet, definitely seems like a Mr Wrong, but Maggie has decided that a Mr Wrong might turn out to be oh-so right.
Again this story wasn't particularly Christmassy but it had wonderful characters and was fun, sexy and romantic. Jacob is a hero to die for while Maggie was someone most people could identify with. The story of the 'mysterious potion' was funny and kept the pages turning.
CAN YOU HAND ME THE TAPE? by HelenKay Dimon
One week before Christmas and Natalie Pritchard is in a complete panic. The sexy tape that she made for her ex-boyfriend is missing and she desperately needs help to get it back. Unfortunately the only person she can turn to is her nemesis, deliciously handsome and sexy defence attorney Spencer Donovan but will Natalie be willing to pay his price?
This was a cute story about a curvy woman who is still coming to terms with the way her last relationship ended and her insecurities about her body. Spence is a great hero and perfect for Natalie but the story really does suffer from being so short and the Christmas theme is quite thin on the ground.
This set of three, sexy Christmas stories is let down by the lack of festive content, but all of the stories are still fun, sexy and very readable. These will still warm you up and are perfect for a cosy winter night by the fire. 4 stars.

Finding Mr. Right by Jill Shalvis was the best of the three stories. The characters are believable and while I usually don't like stories that have characters that have a past, these two were never involved until now so it was quite enjoyable to see how they interact.
Can You Hand Me The Tape by HelenKay Dimon started out well and went luke warm quickly. The main characters were not suppose to like each other and that did not come across at all. Her other books and short stories have been excellent at the character animosity so I don't know what happened with these two. The character of Charlie was the best of them all as he was a jerk from beginning to end and you really did dislike him as was intended. The fact that he got what he wanted in the end was not what I had expected. While it is a nice story it fell flat.
The first story felt like it wasleading up to another story. It left questions unanwsered. The two main characters were believeable, but not very round. I wanted to know more, but did not get it.
The second story was my favorite. I could just imagine what Maggie was going through, and it was great.
The third story was interesting. The animosity that was to be there well was not. So when the characters got together is was not as much of a suprise. But the Charlie character was great, you really did dislike him.
It was fun and sexy. A great quick read.
I didn't care for the other two stories much at all though.
