 Book Description:

Pretty Near Perfect

by Jolene Perry

The last thing Norah needs is to be attracted to anyone – especially in her deceased fiancé's parents' home. Collin’s starting a new career, and has no business getting involved – especially while staying with his roommate’s family, who very kindly offered to take him in for the holidays. Unfortunately, you just don’t always pick the most convenient time and place to fall for someone.

Six Days of Christmas
by Kaylee Baldwin

When Natalie goes home with her best friend for Christmas, she expects plenty of quiet time to work on a winning ad so she can turn her dream internship into her dream job. Instead, she gets time-consuming Christmas festivities, a house full of children, and Jimmy, her best friend’s brother - someone who makes her question everything she’s always thought she wanted.

Twist of Fate
by Rachael Anderson

When a postcard meant for Kenzie winds up in Ty's mailbox, Ty's faced with a decision. Should he tell her that her fiancé is breaking up with her and let it ruin her favorite holiday, or should he do what he’s wanted to do since he met her - make a move and hope that he can win her over before she discovers there won’t be a wedding after all.

My Review: 
 I have been reading many short stories lately. They haven't always been my favorite thing to read in the past, but they have slowly been winning me over. I was excited to read these three stories because they were written by authors whose work I have loved in the past. I knew before I started reading All I Want, that each of these writers knew how to write a good romance. It turns out that I was absolutely spot on in my thinking! Even though these were short stories, none of them felt rushed or incomplete. They all had a little conflict, a few broken hearts from the past, but were full of flirting, and sweet romance. My main thought was that I didn't want any of the stories to end. I also wished that each story could go on and on. 

Another point to make is that each story felt realistic. I never felt like the situations the characters found themselves in were contrived. I tried to pick which story I liked the most, but it was too hard. There were aspects of each story that I really loved. I could fall in love with any of the leading male characters: Collin, Jimmy or Ty. Congratulations to Jolene, Kaylee, and Rachael for writing Christmas Romances that will entertain you and make your heart flutter. If you are looking for a little romance this Christmas, all you need is All I Want: Three Stories. Three Couples. One Holiday.

Author Jolene Perry

Jolene Perry is an enigmatic figure. She is most often seen behind her laptop, staring at the words flying onto the screen with reckless abandon.

She survived growing up in rural Alaska, driving like a lunatic, and her husband’s careers in the military, as a perpetual student, and an Alaska State Prosecutor. She also survived as a middle school math teacher using her degree of Political Science and French.

One day Jolene was playing her guitar (probably some-thing juvenile for her kids) when she wondered what it would be like to write a song for a rockstar, and her first book was born. (that book is shelved)

She now lives a very glamorous life as a stay at home mom, elbow deep in dirty dishes and peanut butter sandwiches. She doesn’t even attempt to keep up with the laundry because non-writing time is precious, and her family is sorta awesome.


Author Rachael Anderson

Rachael Anderson is the author of four contemporary romances: Divinely Designed, Luck of the Draw, Minor Adjustments, and The Reluctant Bachelorette. She's the mother of four, can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.


Author Kaylee Baldwin

I grew up in Mesa, Arizona, and graduated from Arizona State University

with a degree in English literature.
I currently live in southern Arizona with my husband, Jeremy, and our three children. When I am not writing, I enjoy reading, starting new craft projects, and spending time with my family.
