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 w

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.

„I want you to teach me how to kiss,“ Fielding said in his most arrogant voice.

Blame It on the Mistletoe is book one in the Blame It on the Mistletoe series by Eli Easton. This is a holiday M/M New Adult romance that I would classify as best friends to lovers. The first word that comes to mind with this book is delightful. I couldn’t help but to love these two. They were just completely adorable. I’m not even a huge nerdy hero fan but Fielding had me at hello!!! The entire book is told from Mick’s point of view.

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 mis

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

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

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.

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
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.

What can I possibly say more about this little tasty morsel that everyone hasn’t already said? 😁 Wow! I’m literally blown away! 😱 First of all, hats off to Eli Easton for being able to pack that much emotions and storyline for a less-than-100-pages novella. In my case, a very short 2hrs 30mins audio! I listened this one instead of reading it and I’m so glad that I did!

Secondly, Fielding is such an intricate, interesting and unique person that you can’t help but fall in love with him. 😍 I usuall

What a perfect Christmas read!! 

I tried to sum up the story repeatedly for this review but always ended up redoing it because there's no way to convey how irresistibly cute this plot is.

Mick is a straight jock who takes in physics student and super intelligent nerd Fielding as his roommate (who is a slightly less complicated version of Sheldon from Big Bang Theory)

They become instant friends and Fielding blossoms in Mick's company, joining Mick for runs and eating  happily the health food Mick p

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

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

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

5 Freakin' Adorable Stars

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

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

I'm going to be a voted off the island after this I can feel it.

But... I didn't like it. Parts of it were cute but overall...

I think we can all agree that Easton's bread and butter is the coming of age trope. It's hard to top her for the straight guy figuring out he's maybe not so straight plot line but that bar (for me) is set at Superhero. Five Dares is a close second.

This didn't even get close to unseating those. And when it comes to her Jingletime stories... it's Unwrapping Hank all day, eve

I can tell you how much I loved this GFY college story. I am not usually big on NA books, but this one was just adorkable.

Mick Colman is a jock, and known to be the “best kisser on “campus. His new roommate turns out to be Fielding Monroe, a genius, and a little on the dorky side. From the beginning, Mick takes a nurturing role for Fielding. He makes sure Fielding eats well, exercises, and gets enough sleep. Somewhere along the way, they become best friends. So Fi

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

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."

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.

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
