Twelfth Night by Kallista Dane

Kayla and Matt are not in a very festive mood this Christmas.  Falling on tough financial times coupled with an already stressed, rocky marriage, times are not happy in their household.  They are both tired from working crazy hours.  Matt retreats and keeps to himself and Kayla is a screaming shrew.  They have no time to themselves between work and raising two teenagers.  The spark seemed to have faded in their relationship.

In a quandary as to what to gift her husband, Kayla consults with a stranger, Bob, a customer who visits her place of work.  Sharing his words of wisdom on how special marriage is, Kayla concocts an idea for her husband’s Christmas gift, as well as adding spice to their marriage.

Twelve envelopes....promising to fulfill sexual fantasies....hopefully adding life back into their relationship.  These gifts are to be used any time Matt wishes.

Matt is frustrated as well.  He no longer knows how to communicate with his wife. One day, he to0 has a visitor at his place of business. Bob, a customer, who shares the secrets of his own marriage.  Bob’s suggestion to Matt....take control, be strong, and let Kayla know who wears the pants in the family.  The result?  Matt becomes a major Alpha.  Bob’s words of wisdom coupled with Kayla’s gifts bring out the dominant side in Matt.  And this side is ass spanking fantastic.

Bob....Could he be a Christmas angel sent to save Kayla and Matt?

Over the next twelve months, Matt cashes in these “gift” envelopes and they manage to mend their broken relationship.  The sex is off the charts and they become a loving couple once again.

“Twelfth Night” was an enjoyable festive read.  Just the right spicy story for the holiday season.

Every Year by Kristen Ashley

“Every Year” 
Chaos 2.5

Christmas with the Allens and Cages

Christmas, the happiest time of year, brings back memories of childhood, family, love and traditions. But for some, the memories may not be so pleasant. That’s the case for Parker “Shy” Cage and his brother Landon. Early in their lives, they suffered the brutally tragic loss of their parents, which led to years filled with heartaches...


Shy Cage

“Me and Lan, we aren’t used to happy.”

Landon Cage

However, in the bosom of the Allen family, Shy and Landon have found what was missing in their lives. They once again become part of a family - experiencing the joys of what it love and be loved, to find peace and comfort, to share the good, the bad and to belong.  It was heartwarming experiencing the Cage brothers relive their few happy memories through Rider and Cutter (Tack an Tyra’s boys).  It rekindled a spark in their eyes and touched their souls.  Shy finally finding his peace and comfort with Tabby and the Allen's, carrying out old traditions and beginning some new.

Tabby Allen

“Sometimes, something so beautiful happens, you can’t process it and it builds up inside so big, you can’t do anything but cry.

A family tradition that was once though lost, has now been found through his love for Tabby.  Like his father before him, each year, Shy’s Christmas gift to Tabby will be a pair of earrings symbolizing a promise of eternal love.  **SWOON**


Having a glimpse into anything Tack, is a special treat. He is the ultimate KA alpha - the top literary motorcycle dude for me (Really... he IS the sexiest, sweetest, gentlest, badass growler - YUM).  Tack will make you laugh, with all his wise cracks and cursing on Christmas Day, as well as melt you heart with all his sugary sweetness. 


Tyra, the family matriarch, is still the feisty smart-ass red head, who barely manages to keep everyone in line.

"Nothing, is more important than family. So it's a blessing when that family grows. Shy, Lan, welcome to our family”.

Rush, hope to see his story in the future....

I truly enjoyed revisiting some of my favorite storybook characters. Kristen Ashley dazzles us with yet another emotional tale filled with laughs, tears and sizzling scenes. (Yep, even in a short story, KA manages to squeeze in some hanky-panky).  I’m looking forward to future sequels to the Chaos Series. Perhaps Rush and Landon will get their turn.  
    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a blessed New Year to all!
