    Best Christmas Novella Ever.A woman determined, in support of her bereft sister, to obtain the wanted Christmas toy for her nephew, whose jerk dad has recently run off with the nanny, runs afoul of a spy plot Inspired madness ensues.I first read this in a romance anthology some years back, of which I remember exactly zero other entries I m very pleased to see it available as a separate e book It has a bit of a Love, Actually vibe to it the romance as such takes rather a back seat to the action p [...]

    This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life.I really enjoy Jennifer Crusie s writing so when I saw that I had the chance to review this story, I didn t even think twice about it Of course, I would love it I always love Jennifer Crusie s work But then a strange thing happened while I was reading it, I found that I didn t really care for it It actually made my head hurt a little to read it I even stopped to check that I was really reading a Jennifer Crusie story a couple of times while I [...]

    2 More Like Hot Mess StarsYou know how there are these books that have no story to speak off The ones that make you wonder if there is anything beyond the romance going on there Well, this book was just the opposite.This was a short, Christmas story It was supposed to be all about the romance, right Well, for once, a fluffy book had too much going on From the beginning with the cheesy toy trouble, to the end with the spies and the agencies and the whatnot, this book was a mess I ve only read Bet [...]

    Short and sweet novella from Jennifer Crusie This was the first time I d read it and it was previously published in an anthology from 2006, but it s now available as a standalone.Quick review for a quick read You guys have no idea how much I did mental jumping jacks and cartwheels when I saw this listed on NetGalley So my actual reaction was akin to saying OMG, YES WIN BRING IT I WANT TO READ THIS As if my caps lock isn t enough emphasis Jennifer Crusie is one of my favorite romance authors, and [...]

    2.5 starsFirst of all, this is not a new material Instead, this used to be part of the Santa, Baby anthology, but have only now released as stand alone ebook I was curious after I saw my friend Katie gave this 4 and Dear Author gave this an A recommended review Besides, I used to like Crusie s stories so much.Alas, I guess I have to admit that my taste has changed and I no longer find Crusie s brand of wacky and over the top story line compelling I couldn t even found anything amusing in this on [...]

    A Christmas screwball comedy romance Didn t really hit it for me there s plenty of humour, but the two very pushy guys didn t make it a fun read for me.

    3.5 stars I really enjoyed it Like a tasty Christmas treat it was a slightly snarky, slightly action packed, yet ultimately happy Christmas y type novella with Ms Crusie s signature humor and ultimate good cheer It brings to mind a hint of the classic Charade the movie with Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant, not the game but on a tighter timeline I d recommend it ARC provided by publisher via netgalley for review

    This was fun It s so short I don t have much to say, but it s one of those novellas that felt like a complete story It didn t try to do too much Although, that said, I didn t entirely follow the plot but that might be the fault of the wine holiday weekend.

    It s that time of year and I want to read some hopefully good holiday romances Trudy is a university librarian She gets asked out by who she thought was one of the university professors They go on some dates and she thinks it was going well Until he doesn t call Fast forward a few months Trudy is at a toy store looking for the year s hottest toy for her nephew Who else does she run into but THAT guy Nolan Who happens to be working undercover What happened next was a matter of national security r [...]

    This is a rather complex short story Trudy is caught up in the Christmas Eve rush, looking for a specific toy for her nephew Due to its popularity and the late date, there are none to be found While searching through all the store toys looking for the toy that may have been misplaced, Trudy bumps into a college teacher she once dated, who never called back after their last date, and into a one time research assistant to her own college professor father Once Trudy finds last year s model of the c [...]

    This story is Different I was expecting a cute fluffy holiday story, but got something I never expected.BascuLly it is a story about the Christmas rash and trying to get exactly the toy your sisters child wants for Christmas And then things get extremely crazy.This story did not really fit my personal humor since I guess that is what cruise was aiming for humor but it was still a pretty good fast and easy read It clearly showdased that no matter how crazy you think your Christmas might get, it w [...]

    Looking for a great lunch hour read look no Hot Toy , will fill that order What dio you get when you have a desperate aunt looking for that impossible to get toy on Christmas Eve for her nephew You get a novella filled with humor, two hunky men, danger, espionage, national security concerns oh and did I say Romance Probably my shortest review , but I absolutely loved this novella ARC copy provided by St Martins press via netgalley for an honest review.

    Hot Toy by Jennifer Cruise is LOL and a case study in how nuts someone can get in pursuit of the must have toy of the season Of course, you throw in two hunky guys and National Security and it is just an hysterical, funny story No sex but a fun ride.

    FGMAMTC Blog ReviewI had the best time reading this romantic comedy novella The laughs started almost immediately and played out like a holiday family movie All that can go wrong does, but it also goes very right While last minute insanity shopping for the most popular toy of the season for her nephew, Trudy gets caught up in a battle between government agents The dialogue is truly great The cast is made up of an ex, cougar bait, a drunken sister and other crazies The one goal in Trudy s mind is [...]

    Hot ToyI think this is one of my favorite holiday short stories now What s is it didn t have any sexy time and I LOVE sexy time On this one Jennifer Crusie went only as far as throwing a few kisses here and there My book friends will probably raise their brows when they hear how much I loved this book.This was a previously published work as part of an anthology and now it s being published by itself If you haven t read it, you should And if you ve read it, then I d recommend a reread.Trudy is l [...]

    2.5 stars rounded Christmas comes with madness, mayhem and occasionally that perfect present that is on the must get list The first time I ve encountered Jennifer Crusie s titles, this was a re release as a singular story from an anthology Trudy is last minute shopping for that one must have toy when she runs into her ex, Nolan Some cute banter is the highlight here between them, and then the story starts to get a bit unfocused and strange Mistaken identities, moments that don t quite make sense [...]

    Review originally posted at All Books Considered 2.5 STARSI love Jennifer Crusie but this story felt so dated and it is from 2006 Maybe if I had first read it back then, I would have liked it but reading it today just seemed kind of sad While I do typically enjoy Crusie s references to pop culture in her book and her female friendships in this story, it s sisters , the surprise spy game just seemed odd This was a cute idea about the lengths we go to make our children s Christmas over the top bu [...]

    I spent some time on airplanes over the past week, and I decided to use the time to read Christmas romances, which have been released by the sleigh full just in time for the holidays I read at least a dozen although I confess they were mostly novellas and short stories , and Hot Toy was far and away the best of the lot Librarian Trudy runs into the guy who dumped her while they are both searching for a Major McGuffin, the toxic waste spewing hot toy that every kid wants for Christmas that year F [...]

    A copy of this book has been provided by St Martin s Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review 4.5 stars This was a short, fun wonderfully written story.I loved the bantering between Nolan and Trudy Wow, does Trudy sayit like it is to Nolan for not calling her again after their third date It s Christmas Eve and Trudy finally finds the one toy her nephew wants, and a much sought after toy this holiday season It also contains secret intelligence codes for the Chinese government, and she [...]

    What a funny story Here Truddy is trying to buying a MacGuffin to her nephew but will she be lucky in this Christmas Nooooo, kidding Actually Truddy is a smart ass and has some punchs if anyone try to steal the hope of her nephew especially when his father abandon him in this time of year And Truddy has some experiences of her own father too Nolan was a cute guy and yeah she thought he was the One but he did not call her back Can him redeeming himself Three is good enough

    Crusie has created a cute, fun story that puts the chase for the perfect gift in a new light She cranks up the craziness of the season a few notches while taking readers on a bit of a wild ride Intrigue meets with humour in a way that had me laughing and gasping Due to the brief length of the tale, character development is minimal so I really couldn t connect with them It doesn t affect the story much if you re looking for a quick, light, fluffy read This was a fun, cute short story perfect for [...]

    Monica
    I was kind of torn when it came to this book At first, I thought it was a cute romantic book about a girl and guy meeting at a toy store looking for the same toy, but sadly I wish it was only about that Then comes this story of a spy looking for some secret spy clues I honestly didn t get it I was just utterly confused and not buying this whole storyline I gave it three stars mainly for the beginning which was the only part I liked This wasn t my cup of tea but feel free to give it a try you mig [...]

    Others have called this a hot mess and I think that covers it exactly I guess it was supposed to be funny but I was mostly confused by the plot, didn t really get the characters, and the endingh I just didn t see the romance Not what I expect from this author.

    Just ok.

    This review was originally posted on Delighted ReaderLet start off by saying this book is 3.99 for pre order and it is extremely short I was in luck to get an advanced copy, but I would never pay this much for how short this story actually is, so you have been warned.Did I mention how short it is Well, this is a story about a Trudy Maxwell shopping on Christmas Eve for the very rare action figure, Major MacGuffin with toxic waste for her nephew Now Trudy s nephew and sister are alone this Christ [...]

    I accidentally came across this book while searching the Overdrive library I had no idea that a new Jennifer Crusie book came out It s been so long since I ve read one of her books so I pushed it to the front of my reading list.The writing was in true Jennifer Crusie style keeping you on your toes and as I m a parent of a child who wanted the must have toy for Christmas, I could relate to the story I kept finding my self slowing down and rereading when I found myself reading fast I didn t want t [...]

    This book is featured on One Book Two s Naughty or Nice list To view the entire list go to onebooktwo.wordpress 2015On Ruby s Naughty List Hilarious That is the first word that comes to mind when thinking about this story The dialogue was masterfully done, and I found myself laughing out loud at several different parts The plot of this story caught me off guard and went in directions that I didn t even imagine I am putting this on the naughty list not for the romance which I rate at a PG but for [...]

    Why has it been so long since I read a Jennifer Crusie book Shame on me This just reminded me what I ve been missing fun characters, snappy dialogue and inventive plots.
