I loved all the stories. What I loved was that they were not the super sweet Christmas tales you usually get so I would be happy to listen to them anytime of year. There was a really good mix of drama and romance to keep me entertained.
The only problem I had was with the narrator for the first story 'mistletoe at midnight'. I found it difficult to distinguish between the two main characters when they were speaking to each other.
"A Great Holiday Treat..."
His for the Holidays provides four short stories that centers around the holiday season. Each story was fresh and new with romance and a bit of adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed each story, but my favorite was Mistletoe at Midnight by LB Gregg. This is a romantic holiday themed story with very strong characters and extremely witty dialogue narrated fantastically by Jack LeFleur . That said, the rest of the stories; Nine Lights over Edinburgh, I Heard Him Exclaim, and Icecapade were equally entertaining and enjoyable. Each story elicited an emotional response, whether it be sadness, fear, tears, or happiness! A phenomenal value and a must have for your library.
"Adorable and Fun"
I don't normally enjoy short stories. They either don't give the characters time to develop or just as you're growing to love the characters the story is over. I'll make an exception for this collection, though.
It was lighthearted, warm, and adorable. I genuinely enjoyed every story.
It was really fun getting to listen to each as I decorated my house for Christmas. :)
Great readers. Worth your money.
"HEATING UP THE HOLIDAYS"
Absolutely. These stories are classy well-written stories. I have Icecapade (last story) and loved it. The others are just as good
I would compare it to a series of books by Andrew Grey (Uncorked & Bottled Up).
Very good. Brought the different characters to life!

"Fantastic Short Stories"
I wasn't expecting four short stories, however each story was well written and the narrators were excellent. I am alway searching for my next adventure in the Fiction genre and this section fit the bill. Each story was very different, not your typical storyline that gets old fast. For me, it was refreshing without the dread feeling of "read that!"
If you are looking for; male/male sexy romance short stories, start here and let the narrator take you into four romantic stories.
"2 of 4"
"Mistletoe at Midnight" was just barely Ok, it sort of lacked point. --
"Nine Lights over Edinburgh". Plain bad. Annoying narration matched equally annoying story. Unhuman amounts of schmaltz. Skipped some parts toward the end. --
"I Heard Him Exclaim". Real good and cute one. Great narration. --
"Icecapade". Best among the stories even though Robert sounded a bit off inho. --
All in all, a good buy since stories #2 and 3 make up for #1 and 2
