As i am reading Dating Mr. December I realize this sounds a lot like a movie i watched last year on Lifetime, called the 12 Men of Christmas. Boy, whew nothing new in the world huh, so I kept reading, then I'm like no really this is like word for word, "Holy Crap she stole the idea from the movie," then I was like "Holy Crap did she know they stole her book and made it into a t.v. movie." Why yes my loves I love to talk to myself while reading.Then I did some research,because this was too freaky. Ok they changed somethings, some of the names, where it's located(brought it all the way cross the pond to the USA), but it's the story. So now I'm like freaking out, I go on Imdb and am really looking everything over when I realize.... err.... duh!!! Her name, Phillipa Ashley, is right at the top as writer for the novel. LOL I fell over cracking up. Since i saw the movie first I loved the movie, now that I have read the original works? Love it even more.To help save a local rescue squad, PR expert Emma comes up with a unique twist on a fund raising activity. Think Calendar girls but for men. And there is resistance in the ranks in the form of sexy bachelor Will Tennat. Throw in Christmas, some hot men getting nekkid and you have both the movie and the book,. Although I liked the book more because they skipped a whole lot in the movie, some smoking hot love scenes and the ending was very different. Someone (a review of the movie) pointed out that in the show they went from hating each other to "bumping uglies"(so not my words) with no showing of how they got there, it's all in the book believe me.i loved Kristin Chenoweth as the lead character in the movie, and I kinda brought her over into the book as the voice of the lead character (I just threw a British accent on there, not Madonna British, but you know a real Britsh accent like Kiera Knightley or maybe Emma Watson) This is a recommended read, I loved Bridget Jones Diary and this one reminds me kinda of that, the high jinks and the witty conversations, Yeah this is a good read. Check it out if you have the chance, as well as the movie, since it will be showing soon again for Christmas.Have fun my loves This was a delightfully British story set in the English Lake District about a young woman, Emma Tremayne, who was not only dumped by her boyfriend in favor of her boss, but fired from her great job in public relations as well. She takes a job in Bannerdale working for the Tourist Board and offers to help the local rescue team raise money for a new base camp using her PR skills. Her idea is to publish a nude calendar with all twelve of the rescue personnel, including Will Tennant. Although he thinks it’s a terrible idea, he goes along for the sake of the team and becomes Mr. December, mostly because he has such a hard time resisting Emma. Although they’ve both been hurt in the past, they can’t deny their attraction, no matter how hard they try. I enjoyed this story, I was rooting for these characters to take a chance and give in to their feelings because they both deserved a happily ever after. There were a lot of humorous moments, as well as some delightfully steamy romance as well. I missed Lifetime TV's 2009 movie 12 Men of Christmas, which was based on Dating Mr. December, but I’m glad I got a chance to read the story instead.

A typical but fun romance novel with some steamy scenes, which I wasn't expecting.
