Great assortment of short stories

Fun holiday themed anthology of short stories.    The standouts to me were Christmas Spice (Chapter 1), Snow and Love (Chapter 11), and Secret Santa (Chapter 12).

The Good:  short stories that are easy to listen to; great way to listen to new narrators and writers; I found most of the stories had great narrating; there's a little bit for everyone (fantasy, sci-fi, BDSM, and all different romance tropes).

The Meh: some stories were better than others (and some felt like they really needed to be turned into longer stories!)

Some 👍 others 👎

This has a little of everything in it. Sweet, spicy, orgy paranormal, and bestiality. If I'd known that the last half was orgy, paranormal, and bestiality, I would have stopped listening. I'm not a fan of those. But all in all there os something for every taste.

OK but...

Overall Rating: 3 Stars
Rating Range: 1 - 3.5 Stars

Not going to use my normal template on this collection of stories - I believe 20 or more short stories.

Some of the stories were entertaining while others were lacking any substance. I know it is difficult with stories running 15 - 30 minutes but most could have been tweaked to get a better feeling for the characters. The main focus was the sexual relationships and most had zero intent on an HEA or anything beyond the specific moment.

I think that if you are planning to read this book, especially for the sexy times, plan to do it over a month or so as listening to story after story becomes monotonous after a short time.
