And she knows it's only a matter of time before she falls prey to his seduction, especially since she's trapped with him during one of the worst snowstorms Montana has seen in years.

She's just walked into the middle of a drug investigation at one of the premier BDSM clubs in the state, and one wrong move could blow the cover he's been developing for the past three years. He has no choice but to intercede and claim her as his own, but facing the consequences of his actions might be more than even he's bargained for. ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS Grant MacKenzie is ready to settle down and start a family. The only problem is the one woman he's interested in doesn't seem to be ready for the long haul. But fate lends Grant a helping hand in getting exactly what he wants under his Christmas tree....

    These books irritated me. I enjoyed the characters and the family set up and the variety of the plots but the stories (can't call them books really, they are too short) flirted with having more evolved plots but then shied away as if scared. The stories were incredibly short and so much more could have been done with them...argh! The characters were interesting but never developed. 2.5*

    I will first and foremost admit that part of my rating has to do with the fact that I paid $8 for about 100 pages and I *thought* I was getting 4 full novels. I don't typically read reviews because I don't want to go in with a bias and the description on the site I bought the bundle did not clearly state this are almost novellas. All of that said there was so much potential in these short almost stories. I enjoyed other books in the series that I picked up first (and those were full length novels). Those full length novels hinted at a fascinating story behind each of these men and their ladies so I was eager to read the books. Much to my disappointed there was about 30 pages a story and it was mostly sex. Not that I mind reading sex scenes but I was looking for a good story with depth not an outline for what could be an excellent book.

    I had read Dane before and honestly couldn’t remember if I liked it or not just remember I had read it.  I should have checked my rating.  I think plenty of people would love this type of romance but I found it to be so incredibly sappy and overly gushy, it made me cringe.   I not sure why I didn’t return it.  The only story I really liked was Riley and that’s because it was a little more edgy, I thought Coopers was going to be the same.  Sadly no.  I guess the instant love x 5 just isn’t me. If a guy told me he loved me after the first time we had sex, I would be running the other way FAST!  But then my husband’s idea of romance is walking by slapping my ass as I trying to put on my makeup :/ ....Sarahttp://www.boundlessbookreviews.comhttps://www.facebook.com/BBReviews

    Hot, hot, hot!!! By far, Cooper is my favorite of the boxed set. These short novellas are what made me a follower of Liliana Hart. I wish each of these character's stories were longer. But enjoyed them, very much! If you are looking for a really good book by this author, check out "Cade", a MacKenzie novel.

They were good stories, but felt very rush and the emotions happened a little faster than was really realistic, but they were short so the writer had to move fast to the HEA. I liked them, probably would have enjoyed them more if they had been a little longer.

    This is a series of five novellas based on four brothers and their cousin. Dane and Charlie are given a second chance when he returns home for a short visit and discovers he has a 9-year-old son. Surprise! Thomas and Cat meet when she crashes her car while Thomas is out mending fences. He doctors her back to health, and yes, he is a for real doctor. However, Cat has a very unusual background that causes some problems. Riley and Maggie meet when she contacts him for identification of an ancient artifact. Riley quickly realizes she's got something extremely rare and valuable and has probably been set-up by a colleague. Cooper and Claire meet in an SBDM club, he's on a sting and she's stalking him, sort of. No, she's really stalking him. She's a baby as far as Coop is concerned, but somehow he has a hard time convincing himself of that. Claire is all "growed-up" now and she knows what she wants! Grant, the cousin, and Annabeth have known one another all their lives. She's Grant's sister's BFF. She's always been like his kid sister. Once again, she's not like his kid sister, after all.All the novellas are quick and easy to read as well as entertaining.

    A great Family to Fall in LoveWhat a great box set that has a family of brothers that fall in love and find their life mates. Each brother have a challenge to convince their woman to love and keep them. From Dane and Charlie who have a second chance at love to Thomas who catches the Kat burglar, Riley who rescues the Historian and then ties her up and finally Cade who captures his library mouse and finds out she isn't so prim and proper. You have the bonus of Grant who rescues his true love and brings a Christmas wish come true. The narration along with the book is good, the narrator was OK, the inflections for characters need a bit more variety but still was nice to listen to while driving.

    These books are so short, I wouldn't even call them novellas. They get 2 stars for at least being well written, minus some typos. The characters and stories have tons of potential as stand alone, fully developed books; but; as mini-novellas, they just seem ridiculous. If you want a quick 30 minute read each with instant attraction, instant consensual condom free sex, and insta-love, then go for it. I don't mind naughty talk or erotic scenes, but I can't imagine them with someone that met 5 minutes ago, and can't imagine being that comfortable engaging in some of these things with someone I barely knew- call me old fashioned...

    The Mackenzies...This book set has the beginnings of the MacKenzie family series. A tough fun loving family that has plenty of issues. However the storylines are filled with intense twists, turns, passion, drama, loyalty and plenty of toe curling sex.

    This is a fabulous anthology of the first five novellas in the series. Very hot and sexy pairing that will melt your Kindle/iPod.Each one is a mixed narrative going between the two leads POV and giving a full picture of their thoughts and feelings. If you like sassy girls and dominant men then you will love these yummy reads!!I listened to the audiobook narrated by Carly Robins. She has a great tone and really brings the characters to life. A little more bass in the male voice would have been delicious. Great pace that makes the smexy read really flow. I really enjoyed her narration and definitely want to look for more!Dane (The MacKenzie Family #1)This is a really quick and hot little read! When you have reunited lovers things can progress from "hello" to "Oh God Yes" in a snap. These two are combustible with enough chemistry to burn the lab down.The story is thin but it holds together very well. Because this is such a short read it misses a lot of the build the story deserves. I would love to see this expanded to a full novel or even a novella. It would make the story all the sweeter in the end.There are some story points that could have used time to be drawn out, then they would have had more impact. Forgiveness is to easy, this could have been drawn out over a longer time to really add to the joy of reunion.The steam is hot as Hades!!! When lust has ten years to build things get smexy! For such a short book it packs a wallop in the bedroom or on the desk!!Can't wait to read the other brothers!!Thomas (The MacKenzie Family #2)Things happen really quickly in these novellas. This time we have a dishy doctor and a naughty cat burglar. Again combustible and very smexy! You have to suspend reality for a few things. Cause doctor/patient ethics are bent and you will have to believe a gal with a gunshot wound will be wanting to get busy. Not realistic but uber sexy!I loved all Cat's sass and Thomas was so delicious!! I love a guy who knows what he wants and goes for it!! They are another super hot couple!!! Holy Hannah, these MacKenzie boys know how to throw down!!!For such a short read the character's felt real, I just wish they had more build to the story. It would be great to see this expand into a novel. Really draw out the drama and intrigue!Now I am ready for a little hot for teacher time with Riley!!Riley (The MacKenzie Family #3)Oh my another hot and yummy read!! Ms Hart definitely believes in love/lust at first sight!! These kids meet and are automatically! Whoa mamma, things get smexy fast.Riley is the kind of hot professor you always wish for!! I am sure I would not get any work done if her were my teacher!! The smexy scenes are incredibly hot and might just burn the house down!! Loads of hot play and toys!!The story this time has a little more meat on it and the meeting of the leads makes more sense. Love the mixed narrative, really helps you get into both character's heads.Cooper (The MacKenzie Family #4)Love this smexy big brother!!! Who can resist a sexy officer with handcuffs. piercings and a treasure trove of toys!!! Yes, yes, Oh Gawd YES!!!This story was a great mix of hot tension and a great little story. I could have done with a touch more build on the drama but it was a great read. I liked the whole club setting could have been hotter, there is so much more potential there.This is a great way to end things for the hot brothers and I can not wait to read all the sexxy little extra stories I just discovered!! A MacKenzie Christmas (The MacKenzie Family #5)This is a new turn for the MacKenzie family, now we are moving on to the cousins. I know it is a novella but I would have loved more catch-up time with all the character's we love.The story moves quickly as the leads have know each other for some time, makes the feelings more believable too. There are some super yummy bedroom scenes to heat up the read. Yum Yum!!I can not wait to see what will happen with all Grant's siblings! I really hope we get to seem more of the past couples as the series progresses in this new direction. I love updates cause it is like visiting with old friends.Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.

    This is a collection of the 5 super short novellas in the MacKenzies' series, they are not for young readers but you have to read these so you can get into the whole series and trust me, when the cloaks and daggers begins in the next section of the series, it gets good.Rating 5 out of 5 [Whole Collection]Dane (The MacKenzie Family #1) I got this one for free from iBooks and I had mixed feelings, and by mixed feelings I couldn't decide who I wanted to smack more Dane or Charlotte. Dane left town and a young Charlotte pregnant (granted he didn't know), Dane decided he wanted to follow his dreams and all. In the years he's been gone he occasionally thinks of Charlotte (yet he has no issues being with other women). Dane move bank to town and learns that Charlotte has also moved back and now runs an auto shop. I hate that despite Charlotte's supposedly tough stance she immediately has sex with him. Dane later learns he might have a son and goes to confront Charlotte, they have sex again.I hated that Charlotte basically lived her romantic life in stand still since the day Dane left. This is what I hated about her, Dane had no problem moving on (even temporarily) and she turns down pretty much everyone until Dane comes back into her life.Rating 1 out of [email protected] (The MacKenzie Family #2) This novella was more fun, I like Cat and Thomas more. Thomas is a doctor and Cat is a thief; the story starts off with Cat stealing something. Cat flees once she steals an artifact, but she's shot, yet somehow she makes it to Montana and ends up at the MacKenzie farm. Obviously, Thomas tends to her wound and well things get heated. After handing the artifact over to the proper authorities (yeah, she steals things from criminals, how Robin Hood) she returns to Montana to be with Thomas. I would have wished the story was longer and we had more back story on Cat.Rating 2 out of [email protected] (The MacKenzie Family #3) This story is a little longer than the others and a little more interesting, Riley is a professor and he meets Maggie who has a stolen artifact (no she didn't steal it, it was sent to her by a colleague). Well bad people are after the artifact so Riley takes Maggie to Montana; they stay at Cooper's (Riley's brother) apartment and things get very heated between Riley, Maggie and all the toys Cooper has in his apartment. Eventually, the bad guy comes for the artifact and Riley and Maggie take care of him and they get together. Its fun, it's interesting and it was nice.Rating 3 out of [email protected] (The MacKenzie Family #4) Of all the MacKenzie novellas this is my favorite. Cooper is way into BDSM and Claire has been in love with him forever. Cooper has a thing for Claire, but he doesn't act on it because he's 10 years older than Claire (what an idiot love doesn't have an age). Anyway, Cooper is helping in a drug investigation and the main baddie is is a BDSM club and is chatting up Claire, Cooper interferes and things get crazy from there. This one is my favorite because its a preset to how the rest of the MacKenzie series go. The other MacKenzie's are active military or some sort of undercover government agents going after cartels, so there is a lot of action.Rating 4 out of [email protected] MacKenzie Christmas (The MacKenzie Family #5) This one is just a feel good cute story; Grant is in love with Annabeth and Annabeth is in love with Grant, except neither knows how to tell the other. But, hey its Christmas eve and miracles do tend to happen and when Grant heads home and sees Annabeth accidentally fall into the lake she was skating on. Grant saves Annabeth and they finally tell each other how they feel and have themselves a very Merry Christmas.Rating 3 out of [email protected]

    These are my individual reviews for each book that was in this box set.Dane4 Star ReviewThis was a great short story, I can't wait to read the rest of the brothers books.Thomas3 Star ReviewI liked this one, but I think it could have been longer...it moved way to fast for me. I kind of wish they had a little more time to let love blossom.With that said it was a good book, and parts made me laugh...I loved seeing how Dane and Charlie are doing within the book. I am looking forward to seeing Cooper get knocked on his ass with the love bug, that is going to be interesting.Riley3 Star ReviewsThis one like book 2 I really liked it, but I wish it was longer. The author could have written so much more into this to make it an amazing full length novel. I do love Riley though...but I think I may be taken away by Cooper once I read his book.If you are a fan of short stories that are faced paced then you will LOVE this series.Cooper4 Star ReviewI kinda love Cooper's character, I knew I would reading about him in the previous books, and I wasn't disappointed at all. This book is by far my favorite in the series so far, it was fast paced but the characters had known each other all their lives and their story was well told within the short story.I do wish it was longer but only because I wanted to read more about Cooper.Definitely well worth a read if you haven't read it yet....A MacKenzie Christmas3 Star ReviewI am loving this entire family series...and Grant's story was sweet. He never saw what was always right in front of him until he almost lost it. I especially loved at the end where Cade says he's glad he's leaving because there is something in the water...I can't wait to read the next book which is Cade's, he is going to end up being my next favorite right next to Cooper.

    Blogger PurchaseA Lot of Testosterone in One BookAdapted from Original Post: http://fangswandsandfairydust.com/201...There were a lot of women standing in line for these MacKenzie boys at Authors After Dark, so I thought I should buy one. After reading the stories I can say that they are erotic romance leaning towards the erotic but with interesting story components. The story components are unusual and interesting, but not fully developed.Basically, although the bones of a story are there, they are all thinly veiled, pure erotica: The time from introduction to the bedroom, wall, or counter top is a few scant pages; regardless of the woman’s resolve. Am I saying that is bad? No, I am merely saying that you should read these knowing there is very little “real life” to them, and possibly even less real sex. This is porn star sex we’re talking about here. Because these were issued as novellas and then combined, it’s fair to say a few similarities crept by that wouldn’t have been as apparent in novellas. First the epiphany each man has that this is his one, true love is almost instantaneous. And two of the heroines rub cream on their faces as part of their toilette and hate coffee. By the way, The MacKenzie Family Christmas is definitely not “family” in the PG 13, or even the R, Rating way.These issues aside, if you go in expecting lots hot, fantasy sex, then this is fun, fairly well done erotica. It isn’t overly vulgar, and the characters treat each other with affection and respect. But, AS Erotica I think it’s a good bet.

Very sexy.I just don't believe the "love you can't live without you" after one day. Still sexy story.RILEY 5 stars   Riley is an archeologist who gets a call from Margaret Lawrence about an artifact she has in her possession. When Maggie walks in the cafe, she is not what he was expecting. She has the Tear of Nefetari. They go into hiding because lots of people want it. A snow storm, sex toys, and an ancient, cursed artifact.COOPER.. 5 stars   Cooper is the sheriff with a very kinky side. He doesn't want to get married or have children for fear of dying and leaving them behind. He is in for a shock when he walks in to a BDSM club and finds Claire there.

    Dane: Quick read. Definitely could have been longer. I like that the couple had history, so falling together so quick was much more believable. Would have liked to see more of the transition after Dane stayed in town for good. Not sure if his story will carry over in the next books, but considering how short they are, I doubt it. I plan on reading the other brothers' stories. Not sure which familiy members it moves on to after that, but series seems decent enough to continue.Thomas: Didn't like this one as much as Dane's story. Reminded me too much of Lori Foster's Sawyer book. Moving on to Riley's story.Riley: Riley seems to like antagonizing his brothers. He seems to make me chuckle the most of the brothers in the first 2 books. It is hard to form opinions of characters when the books are so short, but I think Riley is my favorite brother. Hoping his story is interesting. On chapter 3 and the author is losing me. Who uses someone else's (a someone they only just briefly met) sex toys? It is going to take a lot to come back from this one. On the upside, I am looking forward to Cooper's story. :) I hate when I put expectations on books. This was mostly a disappointment. Maybe because it was too short. Moving on....Cooper: I liked this one, tho the lack of BDSM from a story originating in a BDSM club is disappointing. Just saying. A Mackenzie Christmas: cute story. Abrupt ending, the very end seemed either too rushed or it shouldn't have included the part about Dane and Charlie and Cade- tho I assume that is for the seque to his book.

    DANE-Way too short but I loved it. It's fast pace and has a great ending. Dane appears back in town after 10yrs to find the love of his life has a son and no one in her life to get in his way. Love story's with big family. Can't hurt have four hot brothers.THOMAS-Too short but it is jam packed with everything. I love how u can easily fit these in ur day. Thomas meet the mysterious Cat after she almost runs over the O'neil cow. Cat has a secret life that Thomas want to b apart if but can she give up everything for him with only knowing him a few days. I love how the brother fall hard and every quick. I find u don't get bored or lost in these story's bcos they move so quickly. Great ending, can't wait for big bad Cooper to fall.RILEY-WOW hot and sexy with lots of toys and a mysterious pearl that has bad guys after it. Riley falls for maggie as soon as she enters coffee shop. This book, like the others so far is too short but u do get an inside to Cooper and his naughty toy chest.COOPER-Considering Cooper is seen as a Dom not a lot of action happen between Cooper and Claire. Cade is introduced to the series he's Cooper's FBI cousin. Did enjoy it but was hoping for more down n dirty sex from Cooper but good ending.MACKENZIE XMAS-Very short, no real build up to story just jumps straight into it, so u must read blurbs but like all other Mackenzie brothers story I loved it.

    3.5 starsFour brothers Dane, Thomas, Riley and Cooper. These are novellas about the brothers and the women they love. Pretty well written stories. They had the potential to be complete books. I liked some better than others. Dane 3 starsI liked Dane alright, though he is my least favorite brother. I thought his reasoning for leaving in the first place was selfish and inexcusable to be gone ten years. Charlie gave in to quickly. Thomas 4 starsMy favorite. I liked Cat and Thomas. I liked their dynamics. Probably my favorite couple out of them all. Riley 2 starsI liked Riley. I did not like Maggie. She came across as weak and the vibrator thing? Tacky and nosy. Just didn't care for this story as much as the others. It was just sex, not love. Cooper 5 starsCooper and Claire were my favorite. I loved Claire's spunk. She didn't take any crap from Cooper. Just the kind of woman Cooper needed. A MacKenzie Christmas 3 starsGrant and Annabeth.The story itself was fine. But Grant referred to his cousin's children as his nieces and nephews was incorrect and it confused me at first. His cousin's children would be also his cousins, not his his nieces and nephews.

    I was finally able to finish this book set. Oh my god (and not in a good way), i don't usually give low ratings because it doesn't take too much to make me like a book, but these books, they were something else. Yes, i have read a lot of first sight loves, but these ones were just a fraction of first sight! The author had an opportunity with the MacKenzies, they could have become like "the McCarthys" or "the Walkers" or "the Sullivans" or "the Mitchells" but she missed that. I understand these were very short stories, but she didn't accomplish much, but basically i felt that i was reading through a series of one night stands with love.Man sees woman (new or known already), they have sex, say "i love you" the next day, and live happily ever after, THE END. And sometimes during the sex scenes i was laughing, laughing, that's not good at all, anywayTHE END

    After I read the first book Dane for free, I liked it enough to buy the rest of the stories for the rest of the brothers as well as the The McKenzie Christmas. I like the story for Dane and Cooper as they are more believable as both characters know each other for a long time so their quick HEA ending is good for me. However, Thomas and Riley just met the women, slept together and basically declare their love for each other seem a bit too fast and unrealistic. Out the book set I bought, the story I enjoyed most is the McKenzie Christmas as again the characters know each other for a long time so by the time they act on their feelings, I felt happy for them. And the biggest enjoyment was the hero wasn't someone who tried to deny love but knew he is ready for love and family before he act on his feelings and I enjoyed their HEA very much.

    This family is very intriguing to me. I want to know more about each one of them. I don't think the story was told to its capacity in 50 pages each. All five of these books were 156 pages. Just not enough time to deal with ordinary situations and desires.Dane/Charlie--10 years has past and five minutes after seeing one another they are engaged in sex and the next day engaged to be married. Not realistic. Too much time....hurt feelings...a son involved. More of this story needs to be told. Same way with the rest of them. I believe the characters are matched well together and would love to know more about the complexity of their individual situations.Please consider extending these books to novels.
