- Book 4 of Kismet Christmas
In Kismet, Michigan, Christmas is special: big fluffy snowflakes, sleigh bells, carolers singing. It's a picture-perfect holiday—you just have to choose who's in the frame...
Jason Hamilton is on thin ice with the board of his toy company. The young CEO may be a kid at heart, but his party boy reputation requires damage control. So Jason's off to Kismet to inspect a model store, stay on Santa's Nice list, and stick to business—no goofing around. Which is too bad, because the store manager, Danielle Sharpe, is the definition of what makes Naughty fun...
Danielle is thrilled to show off her thriving little toy store—especially if it's her ticket out of Kismet. The single mom is tired of manufacturing cheer solo while her ex-husband has all the fun. But if she'd known Jason was this hot, she wouldn't have offered to host him. With Jason in her house, Danielle is getting warmer than spiked cider. She's supposed to impress him with her expertise, not daydream about catching him under the mistletoe. Now whatever she does, she can't get swept up in the magic...

Get ready for some snow in summertime with ALL HE WANTS FOR CHRISTMAS, a true love story with pretty much the perfect guy and his feisty yet adorable girlfriend.
Stupid girls and their stupid selfies. CEO of fun Jason Hamilton finds himself in an awkward position when the board of his toy company forces him to clean up his image after a damaging photo of him is leaked. Taking drastic action, the board exiles him to a store in Kismet, MI to kick off a damage control PR tour. Jason never imagined he'd find everything he wanted for Christmas in a little Podunk holiday town, but when he meets Moosby's store manager Danielle Sharpe, his entire outlook on life is thrown off kilter.
Danielle just knows that Jason is here to offer her a corporate promotion, after all, HER store is the highest selling branch in the WORLD! The more time they spend together, the more she realizes that maybe Kismet is where she's meant to stay...Jason, too. Because Jason is falling hard and fast for Danielle, her kids and the holly-jolliest town he's ever seen. But they're both keeping secrets from each other that could damage their newfound relationship. Will they discover what they really want for Christmas in time or will their lies tear them apart?
ALL HE WANTS FOR CHRISTMAS is book 4 in the Kismet, Michigan series by the funtabulous Ms. Plumley. I adored the theme of this book, since as a retail professional myself, I could relate to a ton of the situations mentioned. I completely fell under the enigmatic spell of Jason just as everyone in Kismet did. He was engaging and funny and self-deprecating, not to mention gorgeous and sweet and smart. He was pretty much the most perfect book boyfriend ever! The banter between him and Danielle was just perfect, and his efforts to win over her kids cracked me up.
While the humor and chemistry was top notch, I felt like ALL HE WANTS FOR CHRISTMAS seemed to stall after the first several chapters, and the momentum that had been built fell rather flat and I wound up having a tough time getting enough motivation to continue reading.
The sex scenes were also a disappointment. The word cock was used, which is typically a benchmark for some seriously hot sex, however in this story, it was pretty much glossed over! I think a raunchy encounter or 5 would be enough to put this book back into the exciting category! As it stands, this is a well written and fun story, but it just lacks that little something extra that makes a good book a great one.
