Finn by Liz Meldon

6tag_031117-053309Full Review: Finn.

I gave this book 5/5. A well written, steamy romance with interesting realstionship dynamics. I’m interested to see where the author takes the narrative in book two, Cole.


A Beginners Guide to Christmas by Jennifer Joyce.

21078618Full Review: A Beginner’s Guide to Christmas.

I gave this book 3/5. A fun, humourous look at one woman’s christmas period at her parents house. The rules were a quirky touch. I didn’t understand the reasoning behind Gideon’s character. He was lazy, annoying, and there was no explanation as to why Ruth would date him.

The Man Who Loved Christmas by Alice Valdal

19383028Not reviewed on this blog.

I gave this book 2/5. The writing style and narratives were not to my taste.


Stories for Christmas by Various Authors

51WNG1NQZRL._SY346_Full Review: Stories for Christmas.

I gave this book 3/5. Well written stories, but lacked a true Christmassy vibe. Advertised as a free sampler, but never expected the stories to be incomplete without conclusion.


12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep

61l23Qxe-ML._SY346_Full Review: 12 Days at Bleakly Manor.

I gave this book 4/5. A well written concept that draws you into the era and narrative. A Dickens and Christie vibe throughout.


A White Hot Christmas by Adrianne James

5103uATGDmL._SY346_Full Review: A White Hot Christmas.

I gave this book 3/5. A steamy, Christmas read that involves a hunky fireman. All was going great until that abrupt ending.


Santa Baby, I Want a Bad Boy for Christmas by Justine Elvira

51-Xss1A6ELFull Review: Santa Baby, I Want a Bad Boy for Christmas.

I gave this book 3/5. Gunnar’s character stole the show. The story would have been better in his POV. The insta love that I usually adore was too insta for even my liking.

Heralding by Faith Rivens

6tag_201117-052007Full Review: Heralding

I gave this book 5/5. A brilliant sequel to a much loved first book. Eleonore is still as sassy and kick-ass as ever. Her relationship with Etienne is still a pivotal point in the narrative, and his growth and development is handled well. The blurred line between dark and light makes for interesting characters and relationship dynamics.

Silver Bells by C.J. Hunt

6tag_291117-063918Full Review: Silver Bells

I gave this book 5/5. Everything about this book got me in the Christmas spirit. The characters were believable, and the potential happy-ever-after ending was perfect. Who wouldn’t want a hunky, single Dad to look after you when you’re injured and alone?
