When physics grad student Fielding Monroe and skirt-chaser and football player Mick Colman become college housemates, they’re both in for a whole new education. Mick looks out for the absent-minded genius, and he helps Fielding clean up his appearance and discover all the silly pleasures his strict upbringing as a child prodigy denied him. They become best friends.

Countdown: 14 more days before Christmas! If you’re celebrating, I hope you’re feeling the joy of the holiday season! …And that the coldness is not as present at it is here, in Québec. I.AM.FREEZING.


Blame It on the Mistletoe is what I needed yesterday. You know when you’re not quite feeling able to focus too much on something, because you have so many things on your mind? Well, this short story offered me ‘an escape’ and I could just relax and read it, my head brewing less and less wi

The thing about Fielding was, the other shoe always dropped eventually. Because Fielding was like a database. Nothing you ever said or did, or that anyone else ever said or did in Fielding’s presence, was not noted, scrubbed over carefully, hung out to dry, starched, and redelivered in a clear plastic bag sooner or later.

So…let’s drop the other shoe, then.

This was such a sweet read. One that left a smile on my face and my heart happy! I love friends to lovers stories, and these two guys were great!

Mick was an athlete, he was a ladies man, but now he’s focused more on school. His house-mate/best friend, Fielding, is a bit of a nerd. He’s got overprotective parents, he’s super smart and he’s a virgin. He’s also sweet and hilarious. I loved both of these guys. I love all the pre-kiss stuff, Mick teaching Fielding the normal things he missed

4 Stars - über super cute about a nerd and The Kiss, the unforgettable first one

There are so many warm adjectives that fit for this lovely Christmas story. Wonderful, tender, heartwarming and so very sweet about two college guys, a kiss and unexpected feelings.

This book... just wow. It made my heart do a twirl! Me so happy!

I read this on a 7 hour road trip in the car with my two very young kids and my husband and I STILL managed to keep a smile on my face, all thanks to the magic of this little story.

I heart geeks and virgins so hard so this was like delicious magical heaven. I could have used more (view spoiler) but it was pretty much perfect. An awesome
Re-read Feb. 2017 because this is warm and fluffy and full of feels. And I needed that today.

This was an absolutely delightful M/M romance that gave me butterflies in my stomach. Highly, highly recommended to the few who have not read it yet.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to raid Eli Easton's impressive library of M/M romances.

Blame It on the Mistletoe is one of the cutest, sweetest, HOTTEST gay-for-you stories I’ve ever read.

It is my last book in 2015 and I'm delighted it proved to be a 5-star read.

As for the story, the blurb says it all.

The characters are unique and adorable, the romance and the plot are brilliantly structured, the erotic scenes are heavily charged with emotions and seriously makes you hot – considering it is actually a gay-for-each-other story, it is very surprising – and they have the best firs
Loved it, loved it, loved it! Favourite Xmas story up to now (okay I've only read two but its going to take a lot to knock this off top spot!) and I feel all gooey and giggly!

3.5 stars. This is me, crushed by the total ADORABLENESS of Mick and Fielding.

"I felt a rush of relief pleasure so dense it was like swallowing a ball of light. Jesus. This love thing was not for whimps."

Honestly? I want to quote the hell of this book and clutch it to my heart while smiling and giggling like a moron. SEE? I have a heart.

I won't even mention the fact that the story is hardly believable.
Or the stereotypes about the cheerleaders.
Or the rare roll-eyes worthy moments.

Awwwww, I'm drowning in eggnog and sugar cookies. This was just super, super cute, very readable, and happy fuzzy all around.

Mick (ex-jock and nutrition/fitness guru) and Fielding (hot genius geek) are housemates at Cornell. They're also BFFs. When Fielding asks for kissing lessons, Mick is thrown for a loop. He's confused and, well, not gay, or is he?

Both guys were fairly well developed, and the book is well written. If all doubts are purged too easily, oh well, this is a novella, and the MCs

Still love it. Total comfort read.

That was ridiculous.

You know what that much sweetness and cuteness and all out adorableness does to a person like me?

It makes me cry.

I read this in public. Luckily I don't know anyone here but I'm pretty sure they all think I'm emotionally unstable. The crying while smiling like a big ole loon probably looks weird and a little creepy.

This was lovely. Perfect holiday

I said I wanted fluffy, romantic Christmas books and this definitely fit the bill. It was so freakin' cute! I had this goofy smile on my face the whole time I was reading it that just didn't seem to go away.

This book has a decisively YA feel and if there wasn't a slightly more explicit sex scene(nothing too much) I would shelf it like that. I haven't read many MM books and the ones I have tend to be on the more angsty side with the whole "coming out of the closet", "homo

It's no secret I loved Eli Easton's Superhero and am always on the lookout for more of her stories.
Then I saw the cover for this one (it really caught my eye) and read the blurb and knew I had to read it.

Mick is at Cornell, he's double majoring in Nutrition and Physical Therapy. He works 2 jobs, quit football and moved out of the dorms, all to concentrate on his studies.
Now he just needs a housemate and he sure gets one in Fielding.
Fielding is great, his mother is sort of scary but she only m

4.5 Stars! Reading this book was like having the most scrumptious Christmas cookies and the sweetest creamiest hot chocolate. It left me deliciously satisfied. YUM!

Fielding was such a naïve loveable nerd, and his innocence and exuberance to experience life was utterly charming and infectious. Mick was a scrumptious specimen, with a kind heart, not an ounce of ego, and you couldn't help but fall in love with him! His sweet demeanor and protective nature made him the perfect match for Fielding. T

Another great holiday story from Eli Easton. It was absolutely adorable and hot!

Since Ashes to Ashes turned out to be too creepy to read while staying up alone at night, I had to pick this one up to calm myself down a bit. It didn't quite help with the falling asleep though, since I was completely hooked from the beginning with no thought whatsoever on putting it down!

Let's just say that I really loved it! I only wish we'd had way more time with them between that ending and the epilogue. *sigh* Overall though, Blame It On The Mistletoe is sweet, hot and pretty perfect! De

Geek + Jock + GFY! It’s an M/M trifecta and I absolutely loved it!! Mick is a football jock who quit the team to focus on his studies. He moves off campus to get some separation from his past life and ends up with Fielding Monroe as a roommate. Fielding is a genius; very bright but socially awkward in every way. He’s lived a very sheltered life, so Mick takes it upon himself to look out for Fielding. Making sure he eats healthy, gets some exercise, teaching him everyday things like how to build ...more
3.5 stars

I have to admit that gay-for-you is not always a genre that I actively look for. I know that it’s a nice trope and can be really romantic, but at the same time I always wonder if the straight-man-turned-gay will bail in the future. I did think that this story was quite a cute GFY even if I had some personal issues.

What Worked For Me

Oh, what a sweet little story! So sweet that I might have been on a sugar high, smiling throughout the whole novella.

Now, I'm the ultimate Grinch this year, but I still enjoy Christmas stories, and this... this one was perfect!

Fielding was just adorkable! I loved him from page one. I mean, how could I not?

"OH, look!" Fielding said. "They have a new latte flavor–'Santa's Death by Peppermint.' I'm getting that."

Lovely, isn't he? And Mick was just as amazing himself!

This was so adorable and feel good that I read it twice, one right after the other. Fell asleep when I finished it the first time and then reread it the next day. Still just as smile worthy.

I love Easton's description's of things. They always manage to capture so much of the character and moment without explicitly stating the obvious. Great weaving.
When Fielding’s eyes said Eureka!, civilizations crumbled and gods wept.

Oh, wow!

I should have read this book during a Christmas break or holidays, the time feels too off right now (summer!), but I read the blurb and I just couldn't wait.

These two were so cute and hot and adorable. Fielding is such a sweetheart. From friendship to love, Mick and Fielding totally rocked this book.

It is a light read, not deep or anything, perfect for a winter holiday read. I would have wanted it to be longer (the book hehehe), but I'm happy as it is, and I'm being generous with my rati

This was my first Christmas story and first Eli Easton, and it won’t be my last of either. This was light, sweet, fun, emotionally heart tugging and put a big ol’ smile on my face from beginning to end!

I have heard lots of people state they don’t like GFY stories, honestly I am not really sure why? Maybe because they don’t really happen in real life, I don’t really think about it much honestly. I will tell you upfront I don’t mind them in the leas

Adorable and heartwarming story about two friends finding love. Definitely one for my favorites shelf and I've added Fielding to my list of favorite characters. He was so clueless, but so intense when he was focused on something. He was so determined to experience and enjoy life to the fullest. I also loved Mick, even when I wanted to shake him. Watching Mick's growing awareness of Fielding, and his panicked reactions to that awareness, was entertaining. It was also sweet, hot, and painful,
4.5 stars!

This gif pretty much sums up the book:

I really enjoyed it!

Fielding reminds me of Sheldon Cooper, a character from 'The Big Bang Theory'. He analyzes everything, does those things which make the most sense (to him at least), and has trouble understanding the common social norms that the rest of society adheres to. But underneath the oddities, he's just a sweet person who wouldn't hurt a fly.

Mick is the complete opposite of Fielding, though the two have become best friends over the past

A sweet, and fun holiday story. I liked how it didn't feel like GFY, but more like Mick coming to terms with something he hadn't allowed himself to think about, or explore. I really liked Fielding. He has his awkward moments, but he was from the stereotypical nerd. I really appreciated how close their friendship was before anything happened between them, and how Mick respected, and was amazed by Fielding's intelligence not threatened by it. A nice slow build to an excellent conclusion. Even the ...more
Now the bar has been set really high for my Christmas book gorge fest.

This was just as wonderful as just about every other review says. The premise could have been cheesy but instead was completely charming because of how Mick handled Fielding's request. I liked being inside Mick's head, especially as his affections for Fielding grew. Just enough angst to keep it from being too sweet because as Mick says "This love things was not for wimps".

Very highly recommended holiday read!
