Hi all,

Maryse’s husband here. This year I thought I would check in with all of the guys and girls I hear so much about to see if they had anything to say to the person that writes so much about them.

You guys know that “squeeing” thing she says? Well, she actually does it.. and it’s loud. I am sure I am going to hear plenty of it when she reads these…

- Kevin

Brian sends a note via Cherrie Lynn

What’s up, Maryse? Brian Ross here. Candace and I and all the guys at Dermamania wanted you to know we appreciate everything you did this year to get the word out about us. She and I are still going strong and we’re glad our story seemed to entertain a few people along the way.

You know, to show my eternal gratitude, if you’re ever around, come on in for some ink and it’ll be on the house. Whatever you want, I can work my magic. Don’t worry, I’ll keep Ghost in line…or not, you know. Some people think that fu—er, friggin’ idiot is funny for some reason. He’s looking over my shoulder right now, a dumbass in a Santa hat. Stop me before I knock him out…

Okay, done. He’s crying in the corner now. I swear he and Macy are going to make me start smoking again.

Hey, you have an awesome Christmas, all right? Keep up the kick ass work on your blog. I liked going there to read about myself. Good for the ego, and Candace reaped the benefits. Hehe. What a trip!

Take it easy,

Tina Reber sends a note from Ryan Christensen

Maryse – I’d offer to meet you mostly naked under the Christmas tree but the last time I did that I got my girlfriend pregnant.  You also like to blog a lot and I’m worried that you might let it slip that we’ve – you know – when I was just trying to be funny and friendly.   I’ve got enough lunatics claiming that they’ve slept with me, so you understand why this can’t continue.  I’m a one woman kind of man and I’m getting married soon.  If you have a book or something you want me to autograph, I can do that.  Oh, and, Merry Christmas.

From Kiera Allen via S. C. Stephens

Dear Maryse,

Happy Holidays! Kellan and I want to thank you so much for your support.
Kellan’s thrilled that he’s your favorite D-Bag. And I would really like to
thank you for being so understanding of my situation. I’ve had some really
bad moments, and you’ve gone easy on me when you could have been really
nasty, so, again, thank you!

I hope you’re doing well, and I hope this Christmas season is everything you
want it to be! I know it will be for me, thanks to my pretty incredible rock
star boyfriend.

Kiera Allen

P.S. Kellan says he’ll do a private performance for you and your friends

From E. L. James with a note from Fifty.

Dearest, dearest Maryse

Thank you so much for your wonderful support this year. You have been so kind and generous with your reviews and time devoted to Fifty on your blog.
I am crossing my fingers and toes that you enjoy Fifty Shades Freed as much.
I wish you and your lovely husband a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Peaceful New Year…

Oh… and Fifty says… Laters baby.

All the best

Hey Maryse,

Come into Bubba’s, I’ll buy you a beer then I’ll put you on the back of my bike for a Christmas ride. Dress warm, babe, it gets cold in the Colorado mountains.

Merry Christmas.

Jamie McGuire sends a note from Travis Maddox

Merry Christmas. I just wanted you to know that I’ve read all the things you’ve written about me, and first of all – I’m flattered as fuck. I mean, I’m in love with Abby, and you know that, but I wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done for us. I want you to have a great Christmas, and an even better 2012. If anyone fucks with you, you let me know. I’ve got your back, babe.

Travis Maddox


Merry Christmas Maryse!
And a very big thank you to the authors.

Maryse December 25, 2011 at 11:35 AM

Jessica! I know right!?? He woke me up this morning with quite a silly grin on his face. I think he was bracing himself… Except for the *squee* and frantic clapping, I was utterly speechless.

Tina!! That. Was. SOMETHING! WOW. You guys are sneaky!! And Ryan made me seriously blush with the Christmas Tree comment. Husband chuckled…

Hey matante Madeleine (that’s “my aunt Madeleine” in french to all of you wondering…) – Kevin outdid himself this year. He totally rocks! Totally!

Patricia. You crack me up!!! I love your comments, and I have the same problem with my goofy iPad trying to correct me at every turn. It doesn’t like my “blog speak”. *hug*

and *hug* to all of you that stopped in :) I love it! I’m so thrilled!! Merry Christmas!

Maryse December 25, 2011 at 11:53 AM

Brian: I would SO love to get a tattoo from you… I know just what I want! Might take a few visits, but I won’t mind at all!
P.S. Give a *hug* to Ghost from me. I can’t wait for his story ;)
Ryan: *blush* *SUPER blush* *giggle* I can’t help it. The image… hehe. I promise, though. Flirt away… I won’t say a word! Tee hee!!
Keira: Thank you thank you for that wonderful note! Having the D-Bags for a private performance would ROCK OUR WORLDS! Wouldn’t it, guys?? Imagine!?
*sigh* Kellan….. WOOPS! Sorry Keira. ;) Did I do that out loud?
E.L. James: And thank you so much for coming up with such a heart-stopping character. He. Is. Perfect. WOW! “Laters baby…” That said it all. Gets me every time!! “Laters baby” back to Christian. In 24 days, to be exact. ;)
Tate: I’ve never been on the back of anyone’s bike before!!! I can’t wait!
Travis: OMG there is NOTHING cooler than to be told “I’ve got your back, babe.” by Travis Maddox.


You guys!!!

it’s already wayyyyy far from x-mas and I just saw this now because I looked up “Travis” to see which book you guys are gushing about. And then, there is this… Wow. I can feel all the thrills for you. The authors… the awesome husband. Cool :)

*squeeeee* >.<

Kathy October 4, 2012 at 10:45 PM

Maryse ~ just came across your Christmas presnt. Not only do you have great taste in books but your taste in husbands seems pretty good too. What a thoughtful gist.

Suze October 30, 2012 at 6:09 AM

Wow. That was a great present. So happy for you ;) I must say that I am very thankful for you and your blog. It has given me some of THE BEST reading moments of my year. You introduced me to Kele Moon (LOVE HER and her Battered Hearts Series), S.J. Frost and the rocker series, Tina Rebar and her series, and then to top off my year you gave a great review for Happy Hour by Shey Stahl, which is one of the best series ever. I put it right up there with my top favorites of all time.
You do a great service and deserve all the love you are getting this holiday season. I hope all your wishes come true for you and your husband. That was a super “squeeeeee” moment that he thought of that for you. Very romantic ;)
I look forward to your e-mail every day for new ideas, new books to read. Much success to you in 2013.

Lynne December 14, 2012 at 8:00 PM

What fun!! Your husband Rocks!!! :)

Kelly December 16, 2012 at 9:45 PM

I love this book to pieces!!!

Jenni December 18, 2012 at 3:10 PM

Great gift….wonder what is coming this year?!?
Ps… If Kellen does a private performance, can you please send all of us an invite! ;)

jmsassy January 1, 2013 at 3:17 AM

That was such a wonderful and thoughtful gift!! Love your blog and taste in yummy men :) Happy New Year!!

PeggyM December 12, 2014 at 6:44 AM

What a great gift and surprise!

Linda Moro May 27, 2017 at 1:23 PM


This was fun to read thru. May I ask for one more Maddox brothers book?

We were left hanging about trent and Came. (did they ever get pregnant?

What about Taylor? What was his next job after being let go from the fire dept?
Did Travis really stay closer to home with the FBI?

Did Tyler’s Elli ever unite with her nasty family?

How about Olives adoptive parents? I feel so awful for them to loose a second child, unbarable.

Thank you for listening,

if u cd put all the answers in 1 book. I bet that wd be a welcome treat for all of your Maddox brother fans

Linda Moro June 12, 2018 at 1:51 PM


Did u ever let Jame know the questions I was asking about all the Maddox family? I have just finished the Beautiful Funeral for the 3rd time, and all my unanswered questions r so, so, waiting for answers. I’m sure I’m not the only one waiting
