Aimee (Getting Your Read On)
This book is exactly what it proclaims to be: old fashioned, sweet and clean, Christian fiction. Each novella is by a different author so each one is new and fresh. Ooh, and I love this cover. I don't know why but it just oozes sweet romance to me.

I liked these books, but they were all a little slow going. So gentle that it was bordering on sleepy. It took me awhile to get through them all because it wasn't something I could read straight through like other novella anthologies I have read. I rea

A Gentleman's Kiss is a collection of old-fashioned romance stories by some of today's top writers. For a set of nice, feel-good books I would recommend it.

However, I am not the type for the typical story where it is predictable where the story is going from the beginning. I do know that there are many people that look for this type of book and for them I would say definitely a good read. Especially if they enjoy Ginny Aiken, Kristin Billerbeck and the others.

I was given this book by NetGalley a

I am so excited for this book! I love the idea of old-fashioned romances set in today's world! I will definitely be picking up a copy after it's release. It will be the perfect Summer read!
This is a series of novellas with quite a lot of Christianity & praying. They were cute, yet a couple were more preaching less romance. Still a fun little collection.

I’m honestly not sure why I requested this book - I’m not typically a big fan of novellas, though I have read a few that were well written, they always feel too short. That opinion will definitely be reflected in my review. There were a couple times that I really wanted to skip to the next story, but despite that, I did read all of this book. I would kind of like to be able to review each story separately, because there were a few that I really enjoyed, while others I could have done without. Bu ...more

Here you have the hardest review I've ever had to write.

This is a very personal thing, not sure everyone deals with it so I explain it: whenever I read a couple of very similar books in a row, I get fed up. It might be only me, but there are moments I've gone through a lot of fiction books, for example, that I have to stop and read nonfiction. That's how it works for me.

So, reading nine short romantic stories was exhausting at times: so much love and dates and smiles for an entire decade. They s

With this A-DORABLE cover, I was under the impression I’m in for nine sweetest than life novellas.

What I got, and to be honest, I didn’t read through them all, is nine stories that felt, to varying degrees, like different preachings trying to convert me.

I’m open to all faiths, and I rarely judge, but most of the stories in this compilation gave me the impression the stories were missing. There was very little (to none in some stories) romance, but a lot of weak willed characters who’s lives are

I struggled through this collection of novellas. While the premise of each story was somewhat interesting, I found the dialogue to be either cheesy, stilted, preachy, immature, or unrealistic. Some were so slow paced they lost my interest, while others moved the plot forward in ways that seemed contrived. I loved the cover of the book and thought it gave the impression that the stories would be more romantic than I found them to be.

(Thank you to Barbour Books for a copy of the book in exchange f

I have read a number of Novella collections lately and perhaps I am burnt out on these light short romances. I felt like these were a bit of a slog. They took me a long time to get through. They were sweet and clean but they all seemed the same. There were slight variations but not enough to make them each very memorable. These were also a bit heavy handed on the spiritual or religious. It seemed a bit overdone for such short stories. I think those themes come across better when you have more ti ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book. These nine stories were interesting and relaxing. They were also nice and short. The perfect break to read before bed or between daily tasks. Some of the stories were about the same group of people focussing on different members of the group which was nice. I’ve always enjoyed series like that.
