"It Must Be Christmas: Three Holiday Stories" by Jennifer Crusie, Donna Alward, & Mandy Baxter

Author's Book Description : Previously published stories from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Crusie, Mandy Baxter, and Donna Alward, these hot romantic stories share the spirit of love this season. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when love is in the cold and frosty air―and desire reaches the boiling point...

Hot Toy
From New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Crusie comes a hilarious, sexy story about a determined shopper who grabs the last action figure off the shelf, only to find herself plunged into the arms of a sexy secret agent. Mayhem under the mistletoe ensues. Business as usual this Christmas season...right?

Christmas with the Billionaire Rancher
Nate wants to stay away from all the women who want his money in Mandy Baxter’s story set deep in the heart of Texas. But when gorgeous do-gooder Chloe Benson comes knocking at his door―in search of funds for her charity―Nate can’t ignore the passion he feels for her. Maybe love is priceless after all?

Christmas at Seashell Cottage
’Tis the season in Jewell Cove when local doctor Charlie Yang finds her quiet, steady life disrupted by both an abandoned baby in the nativity manger and ex-SEAL Dave Ricker. Are these turn of events too good to be true? Or is Christmas working its magic―for real?

My Book Review : For this full book I give it 3.25 out of 5 stars! Though I couldn't get into all of the novels that were included in this anthology, what I did read I enjoyed! All three are sweet contemporary small town romances that I recommend to those who are interested in that style of book genres.

"Christmas at Seashell Cottage" [Jewell Cove Series, Book 1.5] by Donna Alward

Author's Book Description : It's Christmas in Jewell Cove...

And local doctor Charlie Yang finds her quiet, steady life disrupted by both an abandoned baby in the nativity manger, and a real-life mystery man. Sure, she's always wanted a family of her own, but she didn't imagine it coming from a baby that wasn't hers and a man who was more interested in living day by day than making long-term plans.

Ex-SEAL Dave Ricker hadn't planned on making Jewell Cove his forever home, but the talented and tender-hearted Charlie has him reconsidering his position on settling down. Can a beautiful woman, adorable baby and a small-town full of holiday spirit change his mind for good?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, brought together because of unforeseen circumstances Dave (David) and Charlie (Charlene) have an immediate connection but will it be able to grow into an everlasting relationship or just the "fling" that they agreed too?

This was a charming novel that hooked me from the time Charlie tried to "use baby Jesus" as a weapon. πŸ˜‚

"Hot Toy" by Jennifer Crusie

Author's Book Description : Previously published in the anthology "Santa, Baby," "HOT TOY" is now available as a standalone e-story for the first time!

Mayhem ensues under the mistletoe as a determined shopper grabs the very last hot toy action figure off the shelf, only to find herself plunged into the middle of a real-life spy game and in the arms of a sexy secret agent...

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! On Christmas Eve, Trudy is out at an older toy store in hopes of finding the “IT” toy for boys that year. But of course because of it BEING Christmas Eve she doesn’t find it. She only finds last year’s model, yet that throws her life into a chaos-filled adventure!

This novella was not what I was expecting, yet I enjoyed its action-packed plot and Trudy’s quick wit.

"Mated To The Werewolf King" [The Kings Series, Book 1] by Alena Des

Author's Book Description : As war looms between the two species, the Demon Lord is determined to find Annabelle – little does she know, the truth behind his sinister actions is about to unravel.

When Annabelle discovers that she is not the true daughter of the Alpha in her pack, her world, as she knows it, comes crashing down and she finds herself running to hide from the tyrannical Demon Lord who is hell-bent on finding her.

Despite her objections, she is taken to the court of the Werewolf King. He’s arrogant, stubborn and discerning of her very being, but willing to defend her... for now.

Will the Werewolf King yield to the Demon Lord’s ultimatum and give her to the enemy or will she be the cause of a looming war between the two species?

More importantly, what does the Demon Lord want with Belle? She’s only a werewolf... isn’t she?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! Close to Belle’s (Annabelle) eighteenth birthday, her life forever changes when she learns that everything she knew about herself is a lie. Raised within a werewolf pack, she is taken to the Werewolf King’s castle in hopes to protect her from an unknown source. However, that is just the beginning of the “crazy” that is about to enter her life. Will she be able to “roll with the punches” and make the best of the situations that are thrown her way or will she be “gobbled up and spit out” instead?

Day 11 - Love is all around ~ 25 Days of Christmas from @fromjesstoyouVA | #Bloggerstribe #Blogmas

Welcome to Jess' 25 Days of Christmas ~ Day 11

11
Just two weeks till Christmas---to feel nice and snug, get your family together in a merry group hug!
I am a photographer. I was born with a camera in my face and grew up being acquainted with always having a camera in my hand (this was in the late 80's to early 90's childhood ... way before cellphones with cameras were a thing). Therefore, YES I do have TONS of photos of my own children posing. However, I do my best to keep their faces off my public social media accounts. So the only photo I have of them snuggling / hugging without showing their faces (without trying to wrangle them to pose right now -- sorry I just didn't have the time) is the photo below that I had posted on my Instagram acct about three and a half years ago. 😍 But it is one of my faves of them together. ENJOY!

Welcome to Jess' 25 Days of Christmas ~ Day 10

Do you like receiving Christmas/Holiday cards? When I was younger I religiously (without actually being religious about it) would send out tons of holiday and Christmas cards to just about everyone I knew yet over the years -- because of trying to be money conscious -- I'm lucky to get out just to those in my immediate family. Therefore, I have created a video holiday card for YOU!! I hope you like it! 🀩

Day 4 - Holiday Songs with Book Recs! ~ 25 Days of Christmas from @fromjesstoyouVA | #Bloggerstribe #Blogmas #BookBlogger

Welcome to Jess' 25 Days of Christmas ~ Day 4

I over worked myself on Dec 4th (yesterday) as with how I wanted to put together this post and it being my weekly When & Where am I Wednesday on top of everything else I planned for today .... I over did it and in turn this post is a little late. Sorry! But I hope you'll enjoy all the parts I included in it!






I personally love listening to holiday music. My kids have asked occasionally throughout the year to listen to their Christmas Music cds before bed. But for the most part we start listening to Christmas music mostly starting around my birthday on November 10th. Typically I enjoy listening to my music on random "shuffle mode" like when I had a 5 disc cd player ... and that still happens now that I constantly use Pandora and its shuffle mode. So here are all the "radio stations" on Pandora that I "shuffle" through:

The three weeks till Christmas won't seem very long if you make time each day for a holiday song.

It is Thanksgiving Day (the USA version of it at least) today! The tradition on my blog is to post a list of ALL the books I've read thus far this year that I've given my highest ratings to (5 out of 5 stars) today, which means I'm VERY Thankful for finding/reading them! Be forewarned though ... like the past two years' lists ALL of the novels listed below do not have their official book reviews from me posted and promoted yet because life has been very busy. πŸ™‚ But as I post more of my book reviews this list will be updated so stay tuned!

➡️ So what are you getting out of this blog post you say? Well ... you are getting a glimpse of what my 5 star reads have been in 2019 thus far (as even though their book reviews haven't been posted the first drafts of their reviews HAVE been written), some of my book reviews of these novels/novellas (if the FULL book reviews have officially been posted than they'll be linked), links for you to check out these novels/novellas for yourself on Amazon, AND for the SECOND year running I have a We Are Thankful For Books collab video (at the bottom of this post) for you.

"Fairytale Shifters" [Gray Ridge Pack] by Alexa Riley

Author's Book Description : Welcome to the Fairytale Shifter series ... where growly alphas find their mates and heroines have babies galore! This bundle includes all of our shifter books with a BRAND NEW STORY in the back! Revisit your old favorites and discover our newest addition to the family.

My Book Review : For this full book I give it 3.6 out of 5 stars! I had heard a LOT about Alexa Riley, both good and bad, so when I read this anthology I picked it up because I wanted to read their work while knowing that I was getting everything that I wanted to read without the extras. Therefore, I was so happy that I enjoyed each novella as much as I did. Though not all of the novellas were complete winners I liked all the characters and enjoyed seeing the evolution this little town had in terms of everyone finding relationships. In addition, having all the novellas be fairytale retellings is what I was here for the most and kept me reading them all. If these novellas ever get released again I will say that I do recommend this series anthology and its novellas to those who are wanting paranormal erotic romance quick reads.

"The Three Bad Wolves" [Fairytale Shifters Series, Book 5] by Alexa Riley

Author's Book Description : Finn, Flint, and Forest have spent their lives looking for their mate. The three brothers have been through everything together, and seeing the rest of their family pair off has been hard to watch. But one day, deep in the woods, a small bunny crosses their path when the three of them are in wolf form. To their surprise, they finally find what they’ve been looking for, but it just so happens they all find it at once.

Luna Hare lost her family long ago, and she’s been traveling to different shifter villages, trying to find one that is the right fit. Secretly she’s been hoping to meet another bunny family and possibly find her mate. She never expected that when she’d come to Gray Ridge, she’d not only find a mate, she would find three. Three enormous wolves that look hungry, and not for food.

Warning: Bunnies like to make babies, so it’s a good thing she’s got three wolves lined up and waiting to take a turn.

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! In the middle of a snowstorm, Luna finds that she's mated to not one, not two, but THREE wolf shifters. So, what a cute little bunny shifter to do but lead them on a merry chase. πŸ˜‰

"Finding Snow" [Fairytale Shifters Series, Book 4] by Alexa Riley

Author's Book Description : Koda's found his sister, Winnie, and now he's made a life for himself in Gray Ridge, Colorado. As a bear shifter, he's naturally a loner, and with so few females around, he's resigned to never finding his mate. But when he stumbles upon a woman in the woods, his whole world changes.

Snow's been on the run and has made a makeshift family with a band of seven wanderers. While resting in the woods and waiting for them to come back, something big finds her.

When Koda and Snow collide, they realize their stories are woven together more tightly than they could have imagined. Will the truth break their mates bond? Or will it bind them closer together?

Warning: This fairy-tale shifter story is full of alpha sweetness with a side of growly bear. What's not to love?! If you love a classic story with a dirty twist, then get your click on!

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! A sweet take on the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs novel. Snow (Angie) is a human who has been living in the shifter world for as long as she can remember in one form or another, but most recently with her "adopted" wolf shifter brothers. Wanting some time away, she goes out to play in the snow and meets her mate, Koda. But Snow is keeping secrets and once they come out it could ruin the budding relationship that is growing between them. Will they be able to work it out?

"The Lost Slipper" [Fairytale Shifters Series, Book 3] by Alexa Riley

Author's Book Description : When the alpha falls... He falls hardest of all.

The first time Stone saw Winnie, she was alone in the woods with no memory of where she came from.

With one look, he knew something was different. When she finally came of age and her mating heat kicked in, he realized that she had always been the one.

Sent to live with a strange family, Winnie was forced to deal with the hateful treatment of her stepmother and stepsisters.

Mating the alpha changed that.

But when her past comes back to find her, will the heat last after the clock strikes midnight?

Warning: This shifter fairy tale is meant to be enjoyed by only those who love this kind of adorable stuff. Think you've got what it takes? Then come on in!

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! For the past four years, Winnie has been living with the Gray Ridge pack without her memory. The only thing she knows is that she's a bear shifter and the pack's Alpha, Stone, is who she feels the safest with but he has kept her at arm’s length. Yet once Winnie comes of age, that all changes. But will Stone be too late to win Winnie's heart?

"Beauty Sleeps" [Fairytale Shifters Series, Book 2] by Alexa Riley

Author's Book Description : Xavier has watched Gwen for years, sneaking outside her window just to watch her sleep. She calls to him in a way he doesn't understand.

After he loses his mom and his sister in a tragic accident, he disappears into the woods and lets his wolf take over.

Gwen has been waiting around for her knight in shining armor to show up, but years have passed since she reached her mating age, and he still hasn't come.

When Xavier makes his way back to Gray Ridge, one scent captivates him like no other...

He's on a mission. Claiming Gwen as his mate is all that matters, even if she doesn't remember him.

What he isn't prepared for is Alpha Stone keeping them apart.

:Warning: This fairy tale contains a hero in desperate need of his sleeping beauty, a heroine who wants to mate with her beast, and an alpha trying to keep it from happening. This is meant to be over-the-top, extra sweet, and lots of fun. Come roll around in it.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. When Gwen was a teenager, she had a crush on her "protector," Xavier (X). They were both fated mates but just didn't know it yet. However, when tragedy strikes it keeps them apart for many years. Will they be able to overcome everything that gets between them in hopes of creating a life together?
