Deliza Rafferty is a new erotic romance writer (spicier than true romance without hardcore BDSM - always hot!) located in Hollywood. She's written all sorts of stories and poems for personal enjoyment since she was a little girl, but has spent most of her career in the music business. She is venturing into sharing her musings publicly for the very first time and is excited that modern day technology allows her to do it at her leisure. "Deliza" means "gives pleasure and "Rafferty" means "rich and prosperous." With a name like that, what else could she do? Well...legally, anyway?
Rafferty introduces herself to the contemporary erotic romance audience with 'The Savannah Rossi Chronicles,' a series of ten short stories and novellas that pave the way to the release of a full length novel. Rafferty draws upon her knowledge working in the music industry to create the steamy adventures of sexy, independent, musically-gifted singer/songwriter Savannah Rossi, who is teetering on the verge of national success. Savannah is no spoiled brat pop princess looking to be saved. Confident, driven, intelligent and unabashed in her sexuality, she has created her own success and enjoys a vibrant sex life on her own terms with men of her choosing. Is it possible that any one man could tame such an independent free spirit? Who says she even needs to be tamed? Follow Savannah's journey to find out...

The third installment in the series is basically a short hot Christmas themed erotica. Just as with the previous books, Rafferty brings both the sexiness and hot sex in this book. The story doesn’t move forward much in this book. There is mention of Leif and his ordeal from Slow Jams, but it isn’t necessary to have read that book (although I do recommend it for background story and plus it’s just a really great read). Information is also given out to what happened between Savannah and Logan, the temporary hot bass player from the second story. Not to give any spoilers, but if you’ve read the previous books, you’d know how Savannah is and the aftermath involving Logan wouldn’t really be a big surprise.
You can basically look at this as a break from the main storyline. There isn’t much added, although Eric (from Slow Jams) does make a quick appearance to provide some comic relief. If you want a quick erotica with some Christmas spirit thrown in, you’ll highly enjoy this book.

So far out of all 3 of Savannah's flings this one is my favorite. I'm not sure I ever want her to settle down.
This was a hot short Christmas read. I so wish I had it to read then! Even though it's not Christmas anymore I do recommend it. Heck even if you grabbed it now you would most likely re-read it when the holidays come around.
Savannah's still a strong willed heroine that knows who she is and what she wants. She's just as confident in this book as the ones before it but Holy cow the drummer Jesse can certainly be her equal!

Overall Review based on the 3 volumes:4-4.5 out of 5 Stars
Since this was a short series I decided to do the review with all 3 volumes combined together.
"The Savannah Rossi Chronicles, a series of steamy short stories that will eventually lead to a full length novel. They are centered around Savannah Rossi, a gifted, sexy, confident, up-and-coming rocker and her musical and sexual adventures."
I am reviewing this series a little bit differently. This is a short series of books, currently consisting of three volumes, no more than 14,000 words. Each story can be read as a stand-alone; Deliza does not leave you hanging. Although, I would suggest reading them in order as each volume offers you something different. They are short, they are intense, and they are steamy.
"The short stories are more erotica than romance, the full length novel will have much more "story" and romance to it."
What did I love most about this series? It is the fact that we are not dealing with a bad boy rocker this time around. Oh no, we have our very own bad girl rocker, and she kicked ass! I simply adored Savannah. Our girl knew exactly what it would take to satisfy her and she went after it. She is not apologetic for her healthy sex life. She makes no excuses for what she needs and wants. I totally loved that about her. To be free and not give a damn what others think. Sigh, it would be a perfect world to live in.
Anyway, in Rock & Roll we meet Savvy. She is casing "the house" for the one to fulfill her needs before her show. The story is short and hot as hell! Steamy hot sex with a perfect stranger, no names exchanged - SCREAMS bad girl! Yum! No drama or emotional roller coasters, just straight up dirty sex!
"What started as three days of intense sexual tension on top of worry turned into one of the hottest nights of her life as Logan became the willing receptical of all her emotional and physical turmoil."
Slow Jam was a bit longer in length than the first and third of the series. I thought it was even better than the first! I loved that Deliza changed it up a bit and gave it more meaning. We experienced some emotional drama while still feeling the intense sexual chemistry between Sav and Logan. Damn those two were a sexual ball of tension for most of the book. Their heat just rolled off the pages. Logan, OMG, Logan. Give me a southern boy like that any day and I could die a happy happy girl. Even though Deliza knew Logan on a more personal level, there was no lack of bad girl/bad boy moments. Only difference was in book 1 Savvy controlled the encounter, this time it is Logan who commands her obedience.
"She would usher in the holiday with her favorite pastime-a little bit of singing followed by a hot, steamy romp in the proverbial hay."
What a way to open up with Little Drummer Boy. I think Savvy may just be one of my favorite book chicks, I may even have a little girl crush on her! I was a little sad to see we had moved on from Logan, but from talking to Deliza before reading this series, I already knew Savannah would be enjoying her life and sexual appetite to the fullest until she met the one she could not keep out of her mind and her heart. Then I met Jesse. Uh, yeah I am a bit jealous of our heroine right now. Let us just say public sex with strangers only a few feet away chit chatting...well yeah...moving on!
Overall, I really enjoyed this series. Some of the words used to describe the scenes did not work for me but by no means made it distracting or any less erotic. Savvy and her band are wicked fun. I look forward to other additions by Deliza and getting to know Death by Red on a much more personal level. Not to mention finding out who steals Savvy's heart at the end of her journey. Until then I look forward to enjoying some emotional roller coasters filled in with hot dirty bad girl sex!

While I was a bit upset that Logan was no longer in the picture because I seriously liked him (in the bedroom). I was happy that Deliza Rafferty stayed true to who Savvy (as she's called by friends) is. I can respect a woman who is secure, successful, and enjoys sex. She makes no apologies, that makes me like this character. She is who she is and although I thought she would settle, I like living vicariously through Savannah Rossi. I can not wait to read the next story. Although, I want to see Savannah settled down I am rather enjoying all the tasty men she is sampling.
If you enjoy erotic novels then you should definitely pick these up. Deliza's writing makes me feel like bursting and I'm just a spectator. It's hot and even better right to the point. Sometimes a quickie is exactly what you need *wink*.

After reading all three volumes of the Savannah Rossi Chronicles, I have learned to expect flushed cheeks and a racing pulse! Deliza's descriptions are so sexy and intense. While I was sad to see Logan get the boot, I did appreciate Savannah staying true to her character and not immediately falling all over the first nice guy we meet. I can't wait to read the next chapters and find out who will eventually win this little vixen over and I certainly wouldn't complain if Ryan made another appearance along the way!
