On The Naughty List | Lori Foster | Carly Phillips | Sugar Jamison | Beth Ciotta | Book Review

On The Naughty List is a holiday anthology that was released by St. Martin’s Paperbacks in 2014. There are four books in this collection each with their own characters, chemistry, and holiday spirit. They were each enjoyable to read and introduced me to some new authors as well.

Christmas Bonus by Lori Foster is a holiday work place romance where the two main characters are planning the annual Christmas party together. There is a strong chemistry between the two characters. It is obvious that they have known each other for a long while before actually acting on their feelings.

Naughty Under The Mistletoe by Carly Phillips is another holiday work place romance with a twist. In this case, the main character intends on finally making a move on her boss but kisses his twin brother instead. There is an immediate attraction between the two characters which quickly blossoms into more as they spend time together.

Some Kind of Wonderful by Beth Ciotta was likely my favorite in this anthology. It is a life long friends to lovers troupe which is played perfectly. The two characters find themselves stranded in a cabin together and must decide if they are going to act on the tension that has been simmering between them for a while now. There is also a touch of the three ghosts from A Christmas Carol in there too.

Have Yourself a Curvy Little Christmas by Sugar Jamison is the final story in the anthology. This is a story of a single mother who is trying to connect with the father of her child in order to convince him to take responsibility for him. When she encounters his brother, she finds out that the father of her son is dead, and the wealthy man who she detests now wants to be a father figure for her child. This is an opposites attract type of story with a holiday spin. The dynamic between the two characters and the baby was very sweet.

Each of the stories in On The Naughty List were different and helped capture my attention. There were some sweet moments, some sexy moments, and some laugh out loud moments in all of them. Each of them also had a different approach the holidays which I also enjoyed. I look forward to checking out these authors other works in the future.
