Didn t find their bluntness about their desire for ne another to be a particular turn Anonymums on I just favor having a little mystery surrounding the protagonists feelings while still keeping it honest I was rather ambivalent about Burke and Kam as the hero and heroine I like alphas but Burke seemed to be the cocky playboy type who thinks he can have any woman he wants which wasn t really to my taste Even though I was a little skepticalf Burke s cure for motion sickness I did think it was rather sweet that he made the effort to help Kam vercome it If nothing else I thought I might like the inter ethnic aspect f their romance since Kam is Hawaiian but she wasn t really a stand ut heroine for me I admired that she was a woman who had worked hard to become a great chef and wasn t allowing her verbearing family to run her life but seemingly contrary to her personality she had uit a job where she was being sexually harassed by her boss and never tried to do anything about it legally I thought her reasoning for that was weak and what was even confusing to me is that since she had no sailing experience she wore skimpy clothes to meet Burke just in case she needed to use her looks to get the job Also the moment she set foot Practical Ventriloquism on Burke s boat she almost immediately allowed him to start groping her but I guess maybe that s supposed to be OK if you re attracted to the guy Regrettably this turnedut to be another ne f the instant lust tales that I m rapidly tiring f these days with Burke and Kamala literally tearing each ther s clothes On Riemanns Theory of Algebraic Functions and Their Integrals off within less than an hourf meeting and I can t say that I ever felt much Achtung ... U-Boats Passing: A Saga of War at Sea (Vol. 2) of an emotional connection between them Also as with somef the Achtung Schweinehund!: A Boy's Own Story of Imaginary Combat other novellas in this anthology the Christmas theme is somethingf an afterthought Making Waves is the fourth story in the Men Dugout: The Zombie Steals Home of Rogues Hollow series While I rarely ever read series booksut f rder I made an exception with this ne because I was eager to wrap up the anthology Burke had been mentioned in passing in the first novella Baby It s Cold Outside from the Jingle Bell Rock anthology but since I haven t read the second and third stories Exposed from the Bad Boys Next Exit anthology and Catch Me if You Can respectively I don t know if he was a part f either ne Burke s three brothers and their heroines from those stories are briefly mentioned in Making Waves with little where are they now updates In my pinion Making Waves stood pretty well Screwball Television: Critical Perspectives on Gilmore Girls on it swn but I had too many issues with it to truly enjoy it After two so so reads in a row from Donna Kauffman I probably won t be in any hurry to complete the series Rating 12 Let It Snow by Nancy Warren I ve never really been much Ya Gotta Believe!: My Roller-Coaster Life as a Screwball Pitcher and Part-Time father, and My Hope-Filled Fight Against Brain Cancer of a fanf the lovehate relationship in romances but if the story is long enough to develop the characters and their connection to Night's Pawn one another I can usually buy into their burgeoning love Let It Snow relies heavilyn the lovehate scenario with weather girl Marisa thinking that her camera man Rob hates her because he barely ever looks at her Firing the First Elder (Pioneers in the Pulpit Book 2) or even speaks to her Of course Rob is just hiding a casef the hots for a woman he doesn t want to like because she s his exact pposite Unfortunately I found Let It Snow to be too short to develop the characters and plot sufficiently to make their rapid turn around believable Another large part f the story had to do with Rob and Marisa getting stranded for hours n the roof f their high

would think that someone who had been working n that broadcast would have noticed them being missing much Sooner Also In This Also in this day and age it seems likely that ne Death by Inferior Design of them would have been carrying a cell phone While I guess neither scenario is impossible they were improbable enough to give me pause In addition the love scenes lacked the heatf some f the ther novellas in this anthology In my Hitler's Northern War: The Luftwaffe's Ill-Fated Campaign, 1940-1945 opinion there just wasn t enough build upf sexual tension to create the necessary steam The Christmas theme was really just a token as well with the events merely ccurring n Christmas Eve Overall Let It Snow wasn t a terrible story but it wasn t a great ne either This was my first read by Nancy Warren but since it seems this may not be the best example f her work I ll reserve my full A Philosophy of Cinematic Art opinionn her writing style until I ve had the chance to check The Potato Hack: Weight Loss Simplified outf her books Rating You Actually by Erin McCarthy The stories in this anthology are so short that I went into reading it with the attitude that they would probably be OK reads but I wasn t really expecting anything spectacular Well Erin McCarthy uickly disabused me White House Years (Henry Kissingers Memoirs of that notion with her novella You Actually that has become the first short story to which I have ever awarded 5 star keeper status I absolutely loved this little gem about two best friends who are finally able to reveal their long held feelings forne another and share the best Christmas present f all Ms McCarthy definitely has a knack for creating a beautiful love scene A fur throw under the Christmas tree jingle bell panties cute and a sexy game f Twister all made for a story that was incredibly steamy and sensual but was infused with just the right amount Scab of tender emotion and light humor to also make it sweet I loved Josh and Cassidy s Christmas Eve traditionf watching It s a Wonderful Life which is In a World Created by a Drunken God onef my Indo No Kao own traditions There was just enough back story givenn Josh and Cassidy for me to feel a connection to them and although I liked the characters so well I could have read a full length novel about them I didn t come away from the story feeling like it was too short All in all You Actually was a perfect first read for me by Erin McCarthy and if she writes like this all the time I can t wait to dive into her back list Rating Undercover Claus by MaryJanice Davidson I am sorry to say that I Out Time Too Josh Black is so in love with his friend Cassidy that he writes her into his cartoon strip making Cassidy think he's fallen for another woman Can two confirmed friends unwrap
