What a cute, sweet Christmas treat!

I admit, friends-to-lovers is one of my very favorite story themes--there's something about how a couple of people who already really like each other come to see that there is even more to appreciate about each other and their relationship.

Rhian Cahill brings us along as Talli, a photographer, and Dean, a carpenter, realize that the friendship they've shared for years actually hides even more depth than they'd suspected. When Talli asks Dean to help her with a
Christmas Wishes is another super cute friends turned lovers Christmas themed novella by best selling Aussie Author Rhian Cahill.

When a costume mishap occurs while helping out her friend (Talli), Dean is left feeling a little mortified. Not only does his costumed not fit, but his best friend in the entire world has just seen him in skin tight leggings… with not underwear on. With tensions high, and the chemistry sizzling, will these two friends be able to overcome their new awareness of each oth

Christmas Wishes is a short and sweet holiday themed read from the digital publishing strand of Harlequin, Escape Publishing. I picked up a free copy of this one for completing a survey via their blog and even though Christmas feels like a lifetime ago, I decided to read it right away.

Set in Sydney over Christmas, best friends Talli and Dean arrive at a photography gig in the heart of the holiday period. Talli, the photographer has roped Dean into being her assistant for the day- only she hasn’t

I just love reading Christmas stories this time of year. This is a fun friends to lovers story. Even though it is a short book I still felt the emotional connection between these characters. Dean and Talli didn't know they wanted each other for Christmas until an ill-fitting elf costume opened their minds to new things. :) This one made me laugh out loud and sigh with happiness. This is a nice pick to read when you want something quick and sweet. I lo

This is a cute little short from the new Escape Digital line launched recently. A classic friends to lovers story, it has two engaging and very everyday people in Talli and Dean. No exotic locations and fabulous billionaires but just a lovely warm friendship ready to go one step further.

I really enjoyed this read which is a bit on the sizzling side. In spite of the short nature of the read, the characters were well drawn and the situation believable.

An easy quick read for the holidays.

What's better for Christmas than a joyous story of friends-to-lovers? Talli and Dean are a great couple. They're so real they leap off the page. You can believe their relationship and you really, really want them to take it to the next level. When they do ... well, I'll leave you to discover for yourself :) A fun read and a delight with holiday madness just around the corner. Enjoy!

Everything I want in a romance novella: funny, hot and sweet. I devour anything Rhian Cahill writes with gusto, wether it's scorching hot erotic romance books or sweet friends-to-lovers contemporary romance novellas like this one was.

Fave scene:
- Talli and Dean's first kiss
Rhian is phenomenal at giving you a romance and tons of info in a novella. I always want more but she does it justice. She does it again and again. Dean and Tallis story is wonderful. When. You least expect it you realize your love is right in frond of you.

So who knew Rhian Cahill could write so sweet and so sexy at the same time! Reach for this instead of the second helping of Christmas pav.
Proof that perhaps some plot, even in a smutty novella, wouldn't go astray. *yawn*
