In the mood for Short Stories ? Wanting something quick to read ? In All That's Bright we are given two short stories and then a couple of sneak peeks into some New Adult titles . The first short story is called A Beautifully Broken Christmas Story and features Pax Tate and his wife Mia - They were from the book by Courtney Cole "If You Stay" . The next story was The Wedding by Fisher Amelie and if you can recall Spencer was Sophie's best male friend in her first book Vain which is part of the ...more

All That’s Bright is a very short and sweet, romantic holiday read.

Courtney gives us an update on Pax and Mila and their little one along with a bit of Maddy and Gabe sprinkled in from her Beautiful Broken series. This series really hit home for me so even the smallest update makes my heart smile.

And we get to read a lovely addition to Fisher Ameile’s Greed series. Spencer and Caroline are huge favorite characters for many readers so they’ll thoroughly enjoy this story.

Each is well written and p

A beautifully broken Christmas story
Courtney Cole is always at the top of her game. Whether she is writing a novel or a short story. Always filling the pages with her creative mind. She seems to give us just enough but always leaving us wanting more. Her characters and stories stay with us.....

I love this short story. It has all the right ingredients. Sweet, funny, heartwarming and sexy with just enough smut. In this Christmas tale, we meet up with Pax, Mila, Madison and Gabe. It's a year into

Just what I needed. Do you need a good holiday novella, well then look no further! You've found it!! All That's Bright totally knocked it out of the park. Light and yet still true to the characters. Very endearing yet again making you fall in love with all the characters!

Absolutely, Loved visiting with Pax, Mila, Maddy and Gabe. Plus this is a sampler so there's some teasers for a couple other books and a HEA excerpt of Greed by Fisher Amelie... I am so going to have to read that one;) Grab a gl

I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for a honest review.

All That's Bright came not only with the two novellas I was waiting to read but also a sneek-peek into Courtney Cole's upcoming book, Nocte, and Krystal Wade's book, Charming, book snippets that I thoroughly enjoyed along with the two main novellas in this book. Since they were two seperate stories written by two separate authors, I'll be reviewing the

A Beautifully Broken Christmas Story by Courtney Cole

I am a new follower of Courtney Cole. Honestly, where has she been all of reading life? Her most recent book NOCTE, hooked me for a full day and the rest is history. So when given this short little collection and let just warn you again it's short collection. I was excited to read this as at this point I'll read anything by Courtney Cole. This 72 page collection has 2 stories and starts with a featured Christmas scene between major characters

A Beautifully Broken Christmas Story by Courtney Cole -
This was a nice steamy romance. I enjoyed Mila and Pax's little hot tub fun. It was definitely a great way to end Christmas Eve and bring in Christmas! Beautiful couple.

The Wedding by Fisher Amelie-
I enjoyed how sensual this started off. I really thought it was going to be steamy, but it was pure intimacy and I enjoyed it. Their wedding day was absolutely cute. I definitely need to read

This book was intense since the beginning.
It's a collection of short stories that take place during Christmas Time.

They are exciting, emotional and overflowing. Filled with passion and love without being too overwhelming.

It's impressive the feels you can get when reading them, you don't even need to know the characters in advance, you can feel the chemistry. (Since they belong to a series of books before of this book.)

I can't really describe the characters since it's a short story and I don'

Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I love Pax and Mila so jumped at the chance to catch up with them. I’m not usually a short story reader but sometimes one fits in nicely with what spare time we have. Xmas being busy this collection is perfect for when you’ve a spare 20 minutes or so. Fisher Amelie is an author new to me but I enjoyed the story about Spencer and Cricket even though I didn

This was the perfect romantic read this holiday season! What could be better that characters that we already know expressing their love during this magical time of the year?

Both short stories where terrific additions to each author’s series. If you are looking for a quick, sexy read with characters that you already know and love, then All is Bright is right for you! Loved both stories!

This is swarm hearted holiday novella. It gives you a glimpse of what is happening around the holiday with these characters.

I am a huge Pax fan. Finding him well and happy thrilled me!

Enjoy this novella filled with love and laughter!

If you loved f Beautifully Broken and Pax Tate then you will love this novella. It is all about Paz and his family at Christmas time!! It was a sweet and cute story about Christmas and the continuation of the Beautifully Broken series (which I LOVE). This was a fast and awesome Christmas read!!
