RELEASE BLAST, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Yours For The Holiday by D.J. Jamison
Yours For The Holiday - DJ Jamison

Yours for the Holiday is a seasonal friends (sort of) to enemies story, that is sure to warm you up! JJ is friends with Derek, and Remy is Derek's younger brother. For years, JJ has liked what he has seen, but didn't know how to deal with it. Throw in the fact that he is worried about upsetting the only family he has ever really known, and you can understand his dilemma. Remy, however, thought JJ was only ever teasing him, and learnt to give as good as he got. That didn't stop him from having feelings for JJ, but he resigned himself to the fact that it would never be.

What you get with this book is a seasonal glow (and this from someone who is more the Christmas Grinch than the Christmas Fairy!), a fantastic story, likeable characters, and situations that are completely believable.

This story is excellently written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing was smooth, and the scenes flowed from one to the next. With sexy times, and plenty of humour, this is a wonderful book to read during the holidays, and definitely recommended by me.

Holiday Cookies
Holiday Cookies: Showstopping Recipes to Sweeten the Season - Elisabet der Nederlanden

This has some amazing pictures for each recipe. While flipping through the book I really wanted... Pie!?!? and cookies... but I have really been wanting a chocolate cream pie. Never got the pie, but did make some cookies using one of these recipes. Some of the best cookies I have ever eaten.

 

In this you will find almost every holiday cookie recipe you can think of. The directions are easy to follow, and from the ones I tested the ingredient measurements are spot on, as are the cook times and temps.

 

In the back there is a template for a gingerbread house. I really feel it will come in handy when Christmas comes around. Hopefully this years attempt will turn out and I won't end up at the store buying a prepaid kit and trying to pass it off as homemade. Also, this very much reminded me of something I would expect Martha Stewart to publish, that is a compliment because I consider that woman the queen of making the season festive and yummy.

 

ELISABET DER NEDERLANDEN is a passionate professional baker and a graduate of the California Culinary Academy. She has worked as a food stylist and professional recipe developer/tester for commercial, advertising, and packaging projects. In addition, she has managed recipe testing and food styling for more than 30 cookbooks.

Summer Heat: A Steamy Romance Collection
Summer Heat: A Steamy Romance Collection (Seasonal Shenanigans) - Caitlyn Lynch,Abbigail Clark,Annika Steele,Ariel Bishop,Ava Bari,Avery J. Heath,Christina Rose Andrews,Cynthia Miller,Gwen Marshall,Líadáin Douglas,Livvy Ward,Moxie Rivers,Sera Taíno,Siobhan Kearney,T.D. Crawls,Tally Bane,Tricia Ramey
Summer Heat is a collection of short and steamy romances, absolutely perfect for the beach or when you are stuck in an airport! Just make sure you have some water with you as you might need to cool down. Every story is different, ranging from contemporary, to paranormal, to rock stars and the military. In my opinion, there is literally something here for everyone.
 
All of the stories flow, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. There is simply no story that I felt was a 'filler', and far too many to choose just one favourite! Absolutely recommended by me - for that perfect summer read; or if you want to remember those hot, halcyon days, when it is cold outside.
