Ok, confession time. I’m still working my way through this one. I’ve been reading one story at a time, “rewarding” myself for finishing longer books, and–2020 is seriously messing with my reading time and focus, y’all! I’ve slowed waaay down this year. But I’ve read some really good stories here, and I’d hate for people to miss out on this deal –plus the proceeds go to charity. It’ll only be around until 10/31! So with that in mind, I bring you–the mini reviews!
Every single story here isn’t a winner, but at this price and when the proceeds are going to charity? Absolutely worth every penny!
Highlights so far, IMO:
“I Told You So” by Serena Bell – absolutely wonderful! Cute and funny and sexy–what happens when your one night stand turns out to be the son of your aunt’s fiance
“Coldcocked by Saint Nick” by Melonie Johnson – so much fun! Grinchy heroine is bonked on the head by a candy cane, and her night just goes uphill from there 🙂 (Fairly insta-love, but it’s so cute it’s hard to mind much.)
“Jingle Ball Bender” by Sophia Henry – a super short story with a cliffhanger-ish ending–this one had better be continued somewhere, because she cannot leave me hanging there!
“Decidedly for Christmas” by Stina Linderblatt – a new-to-me author with another to be continued… story that I am 100% keeping an eye out for!
“Under the Mistletoe” by Tawdra Kandle – another new-to-me author, this was a fun second chance romance that gave off Captain America vibes. I’d definitely read more from her!
Run, don’t walk to grab this one! It’s worth it just for the creative uses of “jingle balls” found in each story. Waiting for them is kind of like a grown up version of Where’s Waldo? 😉
Rating: 4 stars / B+
