Finding Mr. Right

Brilliant chemist Maggie Bell has a knack for choosing Mr. Wrong, and with yet another lonely Christmas looming, she decides it's time to alter the equation--and seek out someone who seems totally wrong for her. Eureka! The heart is a genius. . .

Bah Handsome!

Behind on her bills, B&B owner Hope receives an unlikely guest--stranded solicitor Danny, who's been threatening to put her out of business. Funny how the holidays can bring people together no matter how much they resist. . .

Ms. Humbug

Born rebel or overgrown man child, Matt is the kind of man no woman can tame--until an unexpected encounter with his nemesis, Cami, at the office holiday party proves there's an exception to every rule. . .

Merry and Bright by Jill Shalvis
Love that this book actually has three stories from Jill included.
Finding Mr. Right
This book is about Maggie and she's a chemist and knows tons of random facts on any subject. She's given up on her social life to get to where she's at. She meets the contractor on the job working on the companies renovations and realizes Jacob who was once in her chemistry class is the contractor.
Her sister wants a Christmas gift that Maggie will have sex with Mr. Wrong and Jacob hears their conversation and wants the job and before you know it, things get out of hand and her sister has her wish come true. Problem is someone was in the office at the time and she's not sure what's missing.
Hot steamy sex and trouble when she learns her tire is flat-Jacob tells her it's been slashed. They find more trouble at her house and notify the police. They can't keep their hands off one another...
Love hearing the technical side of her work and things she's uncovered.
Love the mystery and the lots of sex combination.
Bah, Handsome!
Hope O'Brien runs the B&B outside of Denver, CO and business is not really good.
One stormy night a man appears-one of her girlfriends wishes her up a man with that knows how to use his sexual organs.
Her step brothers accountant Danny Shaw, and he's not there to give her an extension. She intends to send the money and reassures him of that.
For now he's stuck at the B&B and offers to help her-look over her financial records. She refuses and puts on a good face-til the water freezes up the next morning.
Ben and Lori who live the next place over could help but the pipes are just one thing that's gone wrong. The whole places needs a major uplift. Hot steamy sex scenes.
They get locked in the basement where the radiator is on and they start taking off layers of clothes...Ben and Lisa also come up with some ideas to get the two of them to spend time with one another.
Danny leaves the firm and loves the country and plans for the B&B and wants to help her out of a jam...
Misunderstandings get straightened out ...
Ms. Humbug
City planner Cami Bennett is going to the Christmas party and all she can think about is O's, organization and order and of course organisms.
Before she leaves she heads to the ladies room and encounters a couple having sex in the stall. She thinks it's Matt the mayor because of the shoes. Later at the party she is upstairs going through files and she thinks it's Ned behind the mask and it appears as if it's not him at all.
Lots of miscommunications and they get to talk to learn why she thinks it's him that is spreading rumors. Hot steamy sex and they do team up to combat the culprit. They are taken unawares and a gun is pointed at them when they realize they have gone too far....
I enjoy holiday reads but found the sex just a bit over the top and distracting from the story.
I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest review.
