    • Overall book rating: 3.5Audio Book: N/ABook Cover: 3We have something hereally this was looking really promising. But it’s a short-story! Why people? Why? At least give us a series then? We have a hot artist, a Navy Seal in training who isn’t all that “human” and a portrait of Pygmalion and his Male statue coming to life because he didn’t want to kiss any of the girls.Interesting side characters, heroic acts and the mystery of something not so normal in a whole family line. I don’t h [...]


    • 4.5 starsThis was an interesting story and I really liked it. Per the demand of his commanding officer, Declan becomes the model for a sculpture Mason is doing. From there, the two tentatively start an intimate relationship until Mason finds out something about Declan that he can't handle and with Declan still in the closet with his family, it adds more stress to their new found relationship.I really liked both Declan and Mason. While the characters are a bit shallow, we still get some backgroun [...]


    • 2.5 rounded up because in the end I ultimately liked it but it needs a good editor. The flow is off and at times I had to re-read things to figure out what the author meant. But as the story went along the writing smoothed out enough that I did end up liking it.


    • This Christmas offering by Amberly Smith has a little bit of everything—Mason Cartwright, an ‘out’ gay artist; Declan Matthews, a closeted seaman trying to become a Navy Seal with a secret special “gift” passed down from the males in the family, hinting at the paranormal. There was plenty of opportunity for conflict and emotional upheaval in this story and it almost works. I had to read it twice to figure out why it didn’t work for me. When Mason and Declan first meet, sparks fly and [...]


    • Deck is in training to be a Navy Seal. His family has served in the military for centuries and he wants to prove himself worthy. He believes if he can prove himself in the military then he can tell them he's gay and they'll accept him. He's called in and told he will be the model for a sculptor doing a commission, who happens to live near his parents so it's agreed he'll go during breaks. He's immediately attracted to Mason but he has a secret. Although things are rough with a long distance rela [...]


    • I despise giving low reviews but I just couldn't get into these men!! I adore art, the military and MEN in general, so I figured perfect fit. WRONG! The book should have been a story: a short one.I didn't 'feel the love' between these characters. The plot (the romance between Declan & Mason) wasn't apparent to me. A lot of emotion and feelings were analyzed but they didn't seem to touch them. I get that Declan wants to keep his sexuality hidden from his fellow sailors. (He's in SEAL training [...]


    • I really like my military men stories. ;-PI didn't read the book description and so I didn't know what to expect. Declan Matthews has just finished Hell Week for the Navy Seals and he has been given an assignment. To be a model for a statue the armed forces has commissioned from Mason Cartwright. Hiding his sexual orientation isn't the only secret that Deck is keeping. I really REALLY liked Deck and Mason. I needed half stars here for 4.5. This was such a great story and I HATED that it ended! I [...]


    • This one was a little odd. Starts out looking like a pretty standard contemporary. Deck is a closeted gay man in the middle of qualifying as a Navy SEAL. Mason is an artist in need of a model for a commission. And then half way in it takes a sharp left turn into the paranormal.I enjoy a good paranormal romance, but I want to know that's what it is from the start. The paranormal element didn't really add anything to the story, and I wish it had been left as a standard contemporary romance.


    • This is a great story about Deck, a Navy SEAL in training, who learns that nothing is more important than love. He already believes that being honest is crucial, so when push comes to shove he makes his decisions accordingly. Mason, the artist he falls for, has his own barriers to overcome and was a wonderful character. Seen only through Joe's eyes, his concerns and beliefs still come through.The story has an unsuspected paranormal touch, lots of Christmas spirit and a happy ending. All of which [...]


    • This is quite a surprise of a Christmas story. I had not heard of this author before but will look forward to reading more she writes in the future. The story of Mason and Declan plays out well in the post 9/11 world. Deck feels heavily his family tradition of service to country as he attempts to make his mark as a Navy Seal in training. But he also wonders if there is room for a gay Navy Seal in his family. The supernatural plot twist is a bit of a surprise but fits well in the storyline. I wou [...]


    • This wasn’t quite what I was expecting. I always seem to enjoy books where one of the MCs is a military man, so the blurb caught my eye and there was some good chemistry between Deck and Mason. However, the story didn’t flow smoothly (which may have been a symptom of its short length), and the whole paranormal implication completely threw me for a loop (probably detracting more than adding to the story). A little bit quirky may be the best way to summarize this one for me.


    • This book was not bad, it was pretty cute even but then it sort of randomly added this paranormal bit in at the end and it went off course for me. It was much to short a story to add such a big thing in especially in the last few pages. Plus this story was not tremendously Christmas-y. The only thing that seemed to make it a Christmas story is that it took place around the holidays.


    • Good m/m holiday romance about a guy in Navy SEAL training who gets picked to pose for a statue that will be displayed on a military base. Because of DADT, he can't let on that he's gay, but he finds himself very attracted to the sculptor. This had a strange, sort of paranormal twist to it that really took me by surprise.


    • I liked the premise and enjoyed the interactions between the MCs but as with a lot of short stories, the ending felt rushed.
