Format: Paperback
Jingle Bell Rock is an erotic anthology with some rather exquisite, albeit short, novellas featuring today's popular romance novelists. The anthology contains all of the sensual ingredients that make erotic stories memorable. However, there are some loose ends. For instance, story development and characterization are notably missing. I understand that it is difficult to do the same with a fifty-page long story, but a good writer is able to convey a good story and compelling characters nonetheless. The Christmas angle is a mere afterthought -- I got the impression that the authors threw in the holiday backdrop for good measure. Having said that, the erotica in this book is excellent. Lori Foster's "He Sees You When You're Sleeping" and Janelle Denison's "All She Wants for Christmas" are my favorites. Nancy Warren's "The Nutcracker Sweet" adds a sliver of humor to the anthology. The aforementioned stories are the better structured ones in this book. All in all, despite the loose ends, Jingle Bell Rock is an essential guidebook to great sex ideas to do during the holidays (I know I'll be trying a few of those scenarios!). It's not up to the earlier bad boy books' par, but an entertaining read for the holidays nevertheless.

This was a very fun, steamy, and festive Christmas present from these very talented authors. There are six short stories in this book so keep in mind that "short" is the key word in that sentence. Still all six authors managed to flesh out fun stories under 100 pages each that were fun to read!
Lori Fosters story "He Sees You When You're Sleeping" is a fun story about two neighbors that feel something for each other but one is involved in a relationship. Or is he? What happens when a Christmas wish comes true and your neighbor and friend becomes a lot more? This was one of my favorites in this book!
Janelle Denison's story "All She Wants for Christmas" was my favorite in this collection. Matthew Carlton has it all, money, looks, and he's a sucessful pediatrician. What he can't find is love. What happens when the one person he desires finally whispers a naughty request in Santa's ear (Matthew)? Perhaps Christmas wishes are fulfilled all over!
Susan Donovan's "Turning Up the Heat" is a fun story and I can't tell you much about it without giving away the ending. Suffice to say that Christmas Eve is not going to be as lonely as Valerie think's it's going to be.
Donna Kauffman's "Baby, It's Cold Outside" reunites childhood sweethearts and gives these two people a chance to "fix" what went wrong the first time. This time love might actually win!
Alison Kent's "A Blue Christmas" is another story that reunites a man with the one person he thought he had a chance with. This is Blue's chance to show Jessie what she missed the first time around!
Nancy Warren's story "The Nutcracker Sweet" brings together two co-workers together that on the outside appear to hate each other.

Reviewing anthologies presents a challenge with so many stories in one compilation. JINGLE BELL ROCK, however, maintains an even pace among its six stories, resulting in a hot Christmas read that rocks! JINGLE BELL ROCK comes highly recommended.
"He Sees You when You're Sleeping" by Lori Foster brings together best friends. ... With an outrageously amusing ending, "He Sees You when You're Sleeping" nicely showcases Foster's gift for combining humor and sensuality.
"All She Wants for Christmas" by Janelle Denison combines a Christmas wish with daring ... A sexy, gentle tale of wishes coming true, Denison turns up the heat with flair!
"Turning Up the Heat" by Susan Donovan ... displays a dazzling gift for adding zest to the holidays!
"Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Donna Kauffman reunites high school sweethearts. ... Kauffman pens an endearing tale of passion and second chances.
"A Blue Christmas" by Alison Kent also reunites high school sweethearts, though under different circumstances. ... A tale rich with emotional complexity, "A Blue Christmas" reveals an unexpected edge.
"The Nutcracker Sweet" by Nancy Warren brings a whole new level of passion to a difficult office relationship. ... Warren proves that her talent with much longer works certainly extends to the short story genre!

I'm not big on anthologies (they're usually so uneven) but this one is pretty good. I'll be honest, I really only bought it for Susan Donovan (one of my faves) and Janelle Denison (her stuff is so hot!), but wound up enjoying (to one degree or another) all but one of these stories.
First up is the ubiquitous Lori Foster. I'm not a big fan of her full-length novels, but I've enjoyed several of her short stories, this one is no exception. It's the story of neighbors who become friends all the while becoming more and more attracted to one another. And when Booker's girlfriend essentially dumps him by hitting on his brother, he's now free to pursue his long suppressed attraction to Frannie. Cute and sweet. 4 stars
Janelle Denison's entry brings to mind Cinderella or Pretty Woman (without the hooker). Elementary school teacher Faith decides to come on to pediatric surgeon (and reputed playboy) Matthew and suggests a steamy one-night stand. Matthew has pursued her for months without success, but now he'll take full advantage of her request. She's been burned by his type before - a rich professional from a socially prominent family - so she's got her eyes wide open this time. But can Matthew convince her that he's not like her ex and that he wants more than just one night? He sure convinced me! 4 stars
Susan Donovan's contribution is by far the most inventive of the bunch. At first I was a bit uneasy until it occurred to me what was probably going on (I won't spoil it by telling!). Poor Valerie is stood up on Christmas Eve, in her sexy new dress and shoes, the dinner she prepared getting cold - along with herself! Her furnace has gone on the fritz and she's just waiting for the furnace repairman. What a pathetic way to spend Christmas Eve!
