ALL HE WANTS FOR CHRISTMAS by Jill Shalvis
EMT Dustin Mauer and tough firefighter Christina Lewis had one wild and sexy night together but now she'll have nothing to do with him. All Dustin wants for Christmas is to make Christina realise that she's madly in love with him.
This was a cute story with likeable characters and some delightful festive romance.
MY GROWN-UP CHRISTMAS LIST by Jacquie D'Alessandro
Sexy firefighter Brad Griffen was head over heels for flower shop owner, Antonia Rizzo, the first time he laid eyes on her. Too bad that she has one rule: she doesn't date firefighters. But Brad is determined to change her mind - even if it takes all night.
This was my favourite story of the three as it was romantic, sexy and left you with a nice warm glow after reading it.
UP ON THE HOUSETOP by Jamie Sobrato
Dr. Lorelei Gibson was always the geeky girl at school yet she still had a crush on Ryan Quinn - the most gorgeous guy in school. Now all grown up, Lorelei is mortified when Ryan - now a hunky firefighter - rescues her from her rooftop, where she gets stuck, half naked. But that's until she realises that perhaps she has a chance for a little sensual payback.
This wasn't my favourite story of the anthology as it felt a little light without much depth or emotion. It was still a good enough read and easy to finish.
I always seem to feel that the festive content in these anthologies is a little on the light side - and this was the case in these stories, too. Having said that - the stories are readable, fun, sexy and will take your mind off the chaos of Christmas for a little while. 4 stars.

All He Wants For Christmas -Jill Shalvis
Sequel to Flashpoint (Harlequin Blaze) and Flashback (Harlequin Blaze) is about the bespectacled EMT Dustin Mauer. The man firefighter Cristine Lewis spent one glorious night with and wants to repeat -but only on her terms as in casual relationship. But Dustin doesn't do friends-with-benefits and decides its time to turn the tables and pull out the big guns (or should I say gun? ROLF!) and force Cristina to come to terms to with the feelings the love-shy lady has for him.
***I couldn't wait to read this story since I reading about Dustin and Cristine in Flashback and it certainly doesn't disappoint. If you like a more laid back/quieter type hero who knows how to turn up the heat to get the woman they love then this one is for you!
My Grown-Up Christmas List by Jacquie D'Alessandro
Tony Rizzo doesn't date firefighters. Enough of them have caused her pain years before. And its another firefighter, Brad Griffin, thats causing her pain -of a different nature ;)- right now. The handsome stud just doesn't know when to give up. Its hard to concentrate with him around and soon Tony is breaking her own rules.
***I love Brad! He knew what he wanted and knew that deep down Tony was the woman for him (and vice versa). What woman doesn't love a gorgeous guy chasing after them? A nice old fashioned get-the-girl story thats smoking hot.
Up On A House Top -Jamie Sobrato
Dr. Lorelei Gibson returns to the town she grew up in and has a chance meeting with her first love, the man who broke her heart and made her feel like a fool. Since high school the ugly ducking has turned into a swan and now Lori feels its time for some revenge. Only hunky fire fighter Ryan Quinn is looking less and less like a use and toss guy and more and more like a keeper.
***Revenge is one of my favorite romance plot lines. Love how they never turn out quite like the person thought they would. This one doesn't disappoint in that category and is well worth the read, especially the *hot springs* scene. ;)
So If your in the mood for some steamy fire fighter romance this one is a good bet.
Others I have enjoyed from these authors include:
A Blazing Little Christmas: Holiday Inn Bed\His For The Holidays\Dear Santa... (Harlequin Blaze)
Jinxed!,(Harlequin Blaze, No. 303)
Sexy All Over (Harlequin Blaze)
Shadow Hawk (Harlequin Blaze)
Watching Dustin fight to show Cristina that she is what he wants not only for Christmas but for all time is funny and sad at moments. To see the way Cristina uses Dustin because she is not willing to give up her hard control. I like the way with love and lust Dustin shows her that he can be everything she needs if she just acknowledge it.

Toni has been hurt by a firefighter in the past so when Brad comes in trying to win her over she wants nothing to do with him. So Brad comes up with a devious plan to show her that even though she thinks this will be a one night stand this is for keeps. Now all he has to do is keep her coming back for more.
Up on the Housetop by Jamie Sobrato
Lorelie has wanted Ryan since high school but he never gave her a second look or so she thought. Ryan saw her and wanted to be with her but it was high school and he had a reputation to protect. However they are both out of school now and Ryan is determined to show her that being with him can fulfill all of her dreams. Lorelie is willing to be with Ryan for a time but doesn't believe that he will be there for more than one night.
It was great to read all of these stories and see the men be true heroes to these women by showing them the could rescue not only them but there hearts too. The fighting may occur but in the long run it is love that will make them last.
