Received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
I absolutely adored stories 1,4 & 5 but unfortunately, 2 & 3 really let this anthology down for me.
HOLIDAY HEAT by Noelle Adams
A lovely story about how 2 damaged people find love again with each other
MISTLETOE BETWEEN FRIENDS by Samantha Chase
Unfortunately this was a bit childish, both the plotline and the writing – too much pouting for a start. The dialogue between Cam and Lily was childish most of the time
THE CHRISTMAS COTTAGE by Samantha Chase
No more pouting I beg you!
Ava was the biggest brat EVER.
I skimmed most of this which is something I rarely do.
EIGHT CHRISTMAS EVES by Rachel Curtis
I loved the time lapses in this story and the way we saw the relationship between Cyrus and Helen change. I think the time jumps made this story unique and gave an unusual perspective to a developing relationship.
WHAT ONCE WAS PERFECT by Zoe York
This was wonderful. I felt like I really got to know Kyle and Laney (both what they are like now and also what they were like during their first relationship). Laney’s relationship with her sister, mother and nephews was cute as well. Although I like a HEA as much as the next person, kudos to the author for keeping it real and having them deal with real problems like relocation and finding a job up until the end.
Although pet hate – please learn to spell fiancé correctly when referring to the guy. 🙂
