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

Merry Christmas

Sweet, fun & just erotic enough! Dean & Talli have been friends since they were just kids. He assists Talli with her Christmas photography gig, where she expects him to dress up as an elf. What she doesn't realize is, the costume is way to small for Dean!! Tight tights, means Talli can see EVERYTHING!! Dean points out that he can't possibly wear this costume & tells her she owes him big! He knows exactly what he wants from her, her heart. Do you take it slow, or jump

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!

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.

Fun sweet holiday read!

Tally and Dean were positively adorable! I loved how they both had a moment that forced action and neither of them pulled back to keep it from happening. Very cute fun read!
