First time reading anything by this author and am looking forward to reading more after this one. This is 3 short stories based around a group of girls who make a bet as to who can have the best adventure. Very well wrote with characters you can connect to straight away and throughout. There's something for everyone in this set or if your greedy like me you'll want all three. You've got a billionaire, biker and a rocker so basically something for all my range of tastes and I loved it. Stories full of the right amount of drama, heat, and adventure I loved it.

This was a great set of quick read books, that just the right amount of drama, hot men, heat and best friend's. The underlying story of a bet between these girls, runs through all of the books... interlinking each friend with there true love that is all found in different places.
Book one was a pleasant surprise in Holiday Encounter set.
BOOK 1 - CHRISTMAS WITH THE BILLIONAIRE ****stars
Christmas With the Billionaire, is a fun quick read and is the 1st in a series that follows 4 friends and their bet to see which one of them can have the best Adventure.
For quiet Emma Glover, the idea of a one night stand is scary as hell, she is much more at home in her pj's watching tv, but with a push from Paige she finds herself at Hotel Wynter - with a stunning winter/ Christmas wonderland. The foyer is beyond stunning, but only one thing can make it better. A set of Hazel eyes, and the body they belong to.
Billionaire Nate ( my most favorite alpha male name ever), doesn't just pick up women at bars, but something about a stunning woman standing in the foyer of hotel in total awestruck has him throwing all his rules out the window. No surprises, Emma and Nate spend an incredible 3 hours together, but a misunderstanding has him walking away from her. Devistated, Emma cannot fathom what happened with the hot man that rocked her world and why he would just leave her.
Knowing she must move on, she attends a Christmas party at her best friend's parents place. She never imagined that her man, with the gorgeous eyes is there to face her. Nate is told in no uncertain terms that her job as a writer will never have anything written about him. With a new lease on life, they spend the party together and Christmas as well.
I'm dissapointed that the end of Emma and Nate's story ended so soon, I really wanted more.
BOOK 2 - SNOWBOUND WITH THE BIKER. ***stars
Hot on the admittance that all of her friends, tricked her into the bet she won, Emma puts it back on them. They all must take part in it and have their adventure.
Katelyn Murphy has secretly loved her brother's best friend, Hunter since she was 11. But with his tough father, of course her big brothers best friend and the age difference between them she figured anything with this hot biker was a pipe dream. But with Emma' s threats in her head, and her horrible boss giving her grief she dumps everything to find him.
Finding herself on a train then taxi, she arrives at Rooster, a dive bar and face to face with Hunter Lawson. After an awkward meeting she is in his bike heading home, much to her disgust. But now is go or bust time, she pleads with him not to leave her, but head for the cabin her is needed at.
Time and memories and a snow storm has them conveniently stuck in the cabin together. It is now she tells him all about her feelings, her R/X rated dreams regarding him and her childhood feelings. Knowing she needs to lay it all out for him she holds nothing back. Surprisingly Hunter feels the same way.
But with an overprotective brother, high maintenance loud friends, and a long history, they have to discover each other..... but not as friends, but lovers.
BOOK 3 - GETTING LUCKY WITH THE ROCKSTAR. **** STARS
This book was my favorite of all 3. The sexy love affair of Jared and Paige was off the charts and their secret relationship had just enough drama to have me hooked.
Paige met rocker Jared Sloane at a hotel back in book 1, and as this story began it is apparent that the one off meeting we all witnessed in book 1, was not the case. Paige has a full on life, studying to be a doctor and interning at a hospital has her days blending into each other. But she has secretly been "seeing" Jared behind her best friends backs.
When she loses a patient, Paige falls back into Jared's arms and the opportunity arises to accompany him in tour with the rest of his band. So she does, but in the week she is away, she pisses Jared off by dumping on his career. She is shoved back on a plane home to face her 3 best friends by a furious Jared. It is with Emma, Jade and Kate she realizes being a doctor is not what she wants... It is Jared, but after leaving him in not very good circumstances, will she lose her man and her career?
I love a good Christmas themed story, these weren't so heavy on the Christmas, it's more about the time period that it happens. There is some mention of snow, and things like that. But if you're looking for a Christmas centric story, these aren't that. However, I really liked all three stories!
There are four friends that these stories center around, the three books in the anthology are on Emma, Kaitlyn, and Paige's adventures while they try to win the bet. All three girls end up not really caring about the bet, because what they found is much more important to their life's happiness!
These stories are perfect glimpses into the beginning of three relationships. But they will leave you wanting to know more about the couples, or at least it did me! The guys in the stories; "The billionaire", "The biker", and "The rockstar" are just the right amount of hot and sweet combined! It's kind of hard for me to pick a favorite, but I guess based on the location I would have to go with Kaitlyn and Hudson a.k.a. "the biker"! Because their story is centered around them getting snowed in in the cabin! Which is like a dream.
Holiday encounters is the perfect quick read to get you in the mood for the upcoming holiday season! And if you're not excited about the holiday season, well then it's the perfect quick read to get you in the mood!
I give Holiday Encounters by Amy Lamont 4 marshmallow vodka spiced chocolate cupcakes!! Yummy!
I read this as I wanted a quick, sexy break between books.
This story had a lot of my favourite ingredients: reserved but sexy billionaire; sweet and shy, unassuming beauty; instant attraction; misunderstanding; hot reconciliation; and promise of a future together.
Emma’s idea of Friday night fun is sitting around in her flannel PJs and eating Chinese food out of the carton. A bet made with her three best friends sees her out of her comfort zone and in a hotel bar to pick up a stranger for a one night stand.
Nate is a walking dreamboat. Emma can’t take her eyes off him, and she can’t quite believe it when he returns her attention.
This was a great little story but I actually would have loved a slightly longer story and more about Nate’s background, as there were implications that his private life or his past was troubled, and we don’t get any explanation. The story felt like the beginning of something longer.
Loved this story!
Katelyn has been in love with Hunter since the first time she saw him when she was a kid. He moved in next door to her family and became best friends with her older brother. As she grew older, her crush crippled her ability to talk to him, or even be in his presence, so she took to avoiding him during her teenage years.
Hunter always felt unworthy and believed that Katelyn disliked him and thought him beneath her.
One day, a life-changing call from her mother drives Katelyn to reach out and grab on to what she wants most in life – Hunter. She seeks him out for the first time in many years, and ends up snowed-in with him in a cabin, where they start to unravel their true feelings.
This was a sweet story, full of honesty, anticipation, and passion. Loved it!
Book 3 (read Oct 2015)
This is the first book I’ve read in this series, and it can be read as a standalone, although I guess it would be a fuller reading experience to read them in order.
Paige met rock star, Jared, over the Christmas holidays and, weeks later, has been seeing him and keeping in contact via text/email/calls when he’s travelling.
Paige is in med school, working and studying every spare minute and living her life to a schedule. The more time she spends with Jared, the more she sees the real guy under the rockstar persona. He invites her to spend a week on tour with his band during Spring break and it opens her eyes to what is missing in her life – passion for her vocation.
I enjoyed the relationship and banter between Paige and Jared. Told from Paige’s POV, we get a real sense of what a hardworking, patient and devoted guy Jared is – we can see that he’s really into Paige.
This was a quick, sexy, enjoyable read.
Paige and her secret lover, rock star Jared. All her life Paige thought she knew what she wanted until the bet that was made with friends Emma, Jade & Kate, The bet was to get Emma out of her head and back into the world and when she won that bet she placed one of her own for the other three. Well what Paige friends didn't know that the night she met Jared they had been hooking up for almost 3 months, and she wanted to keep it that way. Paige has always set goals for herself that she tried very hard to meet and exceed. She has always done what her family thought she would do, and gave up on the dreams she really had. When Jared offers Paige a week away to go on a promo tour with him she decides it's time she took time for herself. Everything was going great until a photographer gets a pic of the two kissing and now their afraid it will end up on the tabloids. Things go down hill and Paige goes home early, she's broken because she wants to be with Jared but her career is important to her (she thinks).
When she arrives home she is met by her friends who she tell the whole story to about everything with Jared, and they discuss with her what she really wants to do, By the end of the night they have a plan of action.
If you want to know the end you'll have to buy the book or get it free on KU.
SNOWBOUND WITH THE BIKER
I fell in love with Amy after I read her first book, and she never disappoints with this one. Hot, steamy, and emotional too. To be able to follow your heart and go back and tell your crush of 11 years how you have felt for so many years and to have all Kate's dreams come to life, is incredible. Kate & Logans story is true magic and to be apart of their story unfolding and coming to life was an honor for me to read. It all starts with a bet between four friends to step outside of your self and comfort zone to have an adventous night you won't forget. But when that actually is found in the heartache of her parents separtating, it is wonderful to watch how Kate turns from her normal everyday self and goes after the man she has loved her whole life. Then to find that he had this unrequitted love for her almost as long was so wonderful for him to open up to Kate and tell him his long yearnings for her. Great read, truly a love story worth the read.
