Naughty Mommy and Santa's Helper's is Trinity Blacio's follow-up to The Naught Angel and her Three Wise Men. In this story, Annabelle has already given birth to triplets and wants to take a more active role in the family business. The only problem is that she feels like a failure to her children because she can't keep up with the rigors of motherhood. The other problem is that her men have put her in the "mother" box and haven't met her needs in a while. For the men, Annabelle's protection comes first and foremost. She is wearing herself out and they don't like that...so they take matters into their own hands and hire nurses to help take care of the children. When Annabelle comes up with a Christmas Hotline to help out needy families, the first case involves a woman with a different agenda. When Annabelle calls her on it- and calls her on the fact that the woman can't keep her hands off Annabelle's mates- her mates castigate her for her rudeness.
I will admit, the book almost became a "will not finish EVER" at this point. But I've read Blacio before, so I assumed that the men would grovel and repent for their stupidity. I may have been in a bloodthirsty mood the day I read this, but I don't think they groveled near enough. As with other Blacio novels, the men are high handed, protective alphas who don't know when to stop. I don't read Annabelle as being a strong character with her men. She usually just allows the smexing to override her angst.
After being married for a year and giving birth to triplets, Annabelle is ready to try her hand at the family business: Christmas! Will she be able to convince her husbands that her new project, Elves Hot Line won't get in the way of raising their children? Will her project be able to distract her from what she really wants- her masters' touch, all three of them, before someone else tries to kill them?
Marcus, Alocer, and Lance know their wife is still trying to find her place in their family, but they are bound to keep her and their children protected at all costs. Slowly, their secret has spread, that the beasts of the Christmas legend would save the innocent. But while some are happy they have arrived, others will try to destroy them, by killing the one thing that held the three of them together: their Naughty Angel.
