I was getting ready to spend the single most important holiday of the year alone. Completely and utterly alone.

That meant he wouldn’t be there Christmas Eve. No making Christmas cookies, or listening to my dad sing off-key while my mom bustled around wrapping last-minute gifts. No decorating the tree. No midnight Christmas kiss.

No waking up in Grey’s arms. We were actuall

A Very Grey Christmas was the perfect addition to Kissing Eden series. I loved it!!! It made me swoon, smile and sigh. For anyone who has read Kissing Eden and Loving Eden will be so happy that Eden and Grey’s story continues. It was almost like we finally got the perfect epilogue for them. Plus the novella takes place around Christmas, which made it even better! It gives the story a nice romantic feel to it. To anyone who is a fan of this series you must read this novella right away.

A Very Grey Christmas is a sweet novella that will get you in the mood for Christmas even though it is still Summer, well here in the UK it is anyway. I haven't read any of the other books in the Kissing Eden series, so I was a bit confused at first but after reading a few pages I was able to get some idea of what had happened and the lovely, yet challenging relationship that Eden and Grey have.

A Very Grey Christmas was the perfect edition to the Kissing Eden series. For those of you looking for a well written holiday read this should definitely be on your TBR. T.A. Foster has done an excellent job getting her readers in the holiday mood with this novella.

Eden and Grey are such complex characters with amazing chemistry. This novella gives us the perfect epilogue and end to their story. T.A. Foster surrounded us in Eden and Grey’s usual amazing chemistry and sucked us right back into t

This book was okay. It bothered me she was so whiny at the first of the book about him not being there. I am more of a strong female to male character and I just didn't see it in this book.

Her holiday schedule though would make some weep. The fact that he was right there with her was great. In the end it all came out ok.

I have to say, I didn't realize this was a series until after getting ready to write my review. I always like to see if I am way off from everyone else or if it was a series be

I zipped the side of my suitcase and slouched beside it on the bed. I knew it wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t go. How could it? I had spent every holiday with my parents for twenty-one years. I couldn’t buck the trend for number twenty-two, even if it meant Grey stayed behind.

It's the holidays and Eden has to fly back home to spend it with her family. Grey has to much going on with the renovations of the hotel to go with her. She is heartbroken since she found out how Grey's holidays were not really celebrated. He doesn't know what it's like to have a family Christmas.
Her trip home was what she needed but she is missing Grey.

My Thoughts


This week is Holiday Novella week at Book Briefs. And it was unintentional. I guess it is just that time of year, and I was craving holiday novellas so much that I booked reviews of two of them for series that I have read and enjoyed, back to back. Yesterday I reviewed This Christmas by Katlyn Duncan, and in the review I talked about how the book surprised me with its' more somber beginning. So I didn't

A Very Grey Christmas is the third story in the Kissing Eden Series by T.A. Foster. I will admit that while I was excited to get more of Eden and Grey, I was a bit worried after reading Loving Eden. I felt like it was missing the spark of the first book and just wasn't what I had come to know and love about these two. I also have kind of a love hate relationship with Christmas stories and novellas, so this one had me a bit nervous. I have to s

A Very Grey Christmas was a cute addition to the Kissing Eden series. It's a short read and you get to see Eden and Grey and how they spend their first Christmas together as a couple.

I must note though that at first Eden comes off as really whiny. I understand she didn't want to spend Christmas apart from Grey, but oh man. You don't need to be so whiny and try and make him feel terrible about not being there with you. At the same time
A Very Grey Christmas is one of those perfect Holiday stories. It’s low key, fun and really puts you in the spirit.

This is the 3rd book in the series but I feel like if you are in the mood for something for the Holiday you can read this without reading the first two books. I think T.A. Foster does a good job alluding to things in the first couple of books but doesn’t give anything away if you want to read them and haven’t yet. Although I think it will make you want to read them if you haven’t. I

I'm a big fan of this series and I was very excited to read this Christmas novella. Eden returns home to North Carolina to spend the holidays with her parents. Unable to convince him to come with her, Grey stays behind in Texas, leaving Eden upset and sad.

But with a little help from the holiday spirit and some help from her parents, Eden gets a Christmas present that doesn't disappoint. I really liked how T.A. Foster reveals this -- with the reader seeing it coming before Eden figures it out.

This was a really sweet, wonderfully written Christmas story featuring two well drawn out and complex characters. I have to admit that I haven't read the first tow books in this series, so I was a bit in the dark when it came to some of the subtler relationship dynamics between friends and family, but I was so drawn in by the immediate and obvious chemistry between Eden and Grey that I went right out and downloaded KISSING EDEN and LOVING EDEN. Despite knowing how this story ends, I'm drawn into ...more

I adore an epilogue!! So, it’s even more fabulous when the author gives me a whole novella! I would definitely recommend you read Kissing Eden and Loving Eden first, as this is a continuation of Eden and Grey’s story.
Eden and Grey are going to be spending their first Christmas as a couple, apart. Eden grew up with a family and community, making for bustling and happy Christmases. Grey, on the other hand, had quiet and low-key holidays, causing him to put little importance on Christmas.

A Very Grey Christmas tells the story of Eden and Grey's first Christmas together--or does it? ;)

Eden, for whom Christmas has always been a special time, is heading home for the holiday--alone. Grey is staying behind, having lots of projects to do. Eden's completely distracted her first two days back in North Carolina, missing Grey and wanting him there with her. Then her parents start to act strangely...

Oh T.A. Foster, you sure do know how to pull at the heartstrings. I loved Eden and Grey from the beginning but this was definitely the icing on the cake that tasted oh so sweet. This was a quick and sweet heart warming novella that is just perfect for the upcoming Christmas season, I know it only will bring you hope that someone in your life will be just as sweet and romantic.

Eden is on her way home, without Grey and she’s sad about it but knows that she has to spend time with her family as well

"A Very Grey Christmas" is a novella recounting Eden and Grey's first Christmas together. It begins quite sadly, with Eden moving to North Carolina on her own for the holidays and leaving Grey behind, but soon a certain surprise brings them together in the very romantic setting.

Eden and Grey are a young couple who live together in Texas. Eden is returning home to her parents' house for Christmas, but Grey is staying behind in Texas to work. Eden is very sentimental about spending Christmas with the ones she loves and is upset that Grey isn't coming with her.

What follows is a sweet romance about a young couple in love, peppered with a few sex scenes to keep it interesting. It

A Very Grey Christmas was a very sweet Christmas story that continued on Grey and Eden's love story. It is their first Christmas together. Unfortunately Eden and Grey won't be spending the holidays together. Eden is going home to NC and Grey is staying on the island to tae care of work. This makes Eden terribly upset. She doesn't want to ever spend the holidays apart. It is the time of year she enjoys more than anything.

I love reading a sweet romantic story. Reading about Grey and Eden, had me all warm and fuzzy. It was tamed but not too tamed. Love the hot and steamy scenes, while Grey pleasured Eden. It had me swooning with a heavy sigh. It was like a breath of fresh air. I have not read a holiday love story in a few months and I can't believe how I missed it so much.

"A Very Grey Christmas" is written by T.A. Foster, and it is the 3rd story in her Kissing Eden series. It can be read as a stand-alone novella. It features Eden and Grey.

In this final book, we see that Grey and Eden are going strong in their relationship and that Eden goes back home to visit her family. While she is happy and excited to be back home the one thing she wants more than anything is that Grey could’ve made the trip. Her parents see that something is missing and try to get her mind on other things, but Eden just hates that they aren't spending their first Christmas together.

What a cute follow up novella to the rest of this series! It got me right in the mood for the holidays. Short and sweet, I think this was the perfect piece to finish off the Grey and Eden puzzle. Like with the first two novels, Eden comes off a bit immature (common, she only left for a week and she was complaining the whole time). I think her behaviour definitely highlights Grey's awesomeness, though he entertains her whining. There's definitely some hot scenes sprinkled in for good measure. It ...more

Grey knows how to read his woman's signals when she starts shedding the clothes you join her, "I threw my coat on the floor and pulled the sweater over my head. “Well, hey.” He turned to see me shedding my clothes. He closed the distance as his lips crashed into mine." Grey is not one to deny his woman anything:
"I was hoping you’d still be naked when I woke up.” I chewed my bottom lip and eyed his flannel shirt.

Such a good short read. OK so first off I didn't know there were other parts to this story (I will read them now). This is the sweetest book and Grey is the sweetest guy. He gives Eden one of the best Chrismases he can. Eden grew up having a big Christmas every year at home. Grey not so much. And Edens parents wants her home for Christmas and Grey isn't able to make it up to NC. But that's all eden wants. She wants Grey for Christmas.
