Christmas with the Houstons was a labor of love. Originally, this book was supposed to be a novella and is still labeled and priced as a novella because that was the original intent.
Jake and April had a story to tell and it took me a long time to get it out and make it the best it could be. Truth be told this book really should have been called Holidays with the Houstons instead because it encompasses Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
You'll get to revisit all your favorite Acceptance Ser

Before you read this review, as a blogger, I thought I should let you know that I read the previous books in The Acceptance Series as an ARC, but I also bought these books because I loved them. I also bought this book, even though there was no blog tour associated with it, because I wanted to read this book and I needed to finish this journey.
However, it was difficult for me to start reading “Christmas with the Houstons”. Why? Because I knew this was the last book in The Acceptance Series,

Christmas with the Houstons is a bloody fantastic read and I would definitely give it more than 5 stars if I could.It had me in an emotional mess throughout with happy and sad tears This book is about Jake and April but don't worry all our favourite characters are there too aswell as some new ones. If you've read the Acceptance Series then be sure to get this little beauty aswell you definitely won't be dissapointed.

Wow!! Just wow. I finished this book a few days ago and I honestly don't think I have yet to find the words to write a review that does this book and series justice. I fell in love with Jake and April in the very beginning of this incredible series. Jake is Connor's older brother. Jake and April are like the mom and dad of the group. I been hoping Dee would give us a little of their story. And, man. It was worth the wait!!

We seen Jake and April get married

Christmas with the Houstons is the perfect ending to the series, even though I’m going to miss these people like crazy! I feel like I have become a member of this special group, having shared in their joy and their pain.

Readers finally get Jake and April’s story. It’s not like the other books in the series; this couple is already married and are awaiting the birth of their first child. With most series, the HEA comes right after the couple walk down the aisle and pledge their love to

4 out of 5 stars

This was my first book in this series and though I’m sure it had much more significance to the readers who have followed the their thing, I know that it was still a wonderful story that made me want to read more about the characters and their journeys.

April and Jake have a relationship that stands test after test and still comes through and helps them be stronger individually and together. They created a family from friends and from nothing at all. They made a holid

ARC received for honest review

Honestly, I absolutely loved this story and this series! First off, you need to read the whole series to know who any of these characters are. Be ready to debate about characters and choose sides. I make no secret I am #TeamMichael. Once they are read, this book brings them all back together as they await the arrival of Jake and April’s baby. Baby hormones, job stress, and crazy family and friends take a toll on the Houston’s but their love is the founda

book 4 in the series but this is Jake and April's happy ever after. Jake is Conner's older brother and their circle of friends are ever present in Jake and April's lives. April is getting closer to her due date when she meets a little girl Mia as a social worker she knows not to get attached but Mia crept right up into her heart. April and Jake both have to work thru some insecurities even though they have been together for 13 years, with a new baby coming big changes are all around. There is a ...more

If you haven't read this series, you cant imagine how good it felt to read about this group of friends again.
Jake and April's story is beautiful! I knew from previous books that Jake was an extraordinaire man but in this book you will see him raw. He's a wonderful human being and April? April is the perfect woman for him. They complete each other like no other!
It was sooo good to read about all the crew, the babies and the toddlers. They all are the perfect family. They suffered so m

Absolutely LOVED Jake & April's story!! D. Kelly does not disappoint!! Right from the very beginning you will be completely captivated!!! We also get to see what's happened with the others since Loving Kate. There is so much love in this story. Yes, there are a few bumps but all in all the love in this story is epic. Such a great reminder that family and friends are what's most important in life.

What an amazing book!!!
I am #teamdanielalltheway . But I'll tell you this Jake Houston comes in a really close 2nd. His and April's story was so sweet. ** No spoilers** There were equal amounts of great times and times that pissed me off. There was a point in the story I was yelling at Jake, then yelled at April. But at the end of the day this book was an incredible ending to a great series

First of all, thank you Dee for this ARC. secondly, this book was amazing! Totally unexpected things happening through the whole book. I loved seeing the whole gang through the the book, they truly are family and not just great friends. Having that is one of the best feelings in the world. My BFF is a part of my family's lives every day too. The best Christmas story ever

This is another great book in the series. To me it was very emotional. If you haven't yet read this series yet you really should. I literally had tears rolling down my face.

Wow, I am not sure I have ever read a story filled with so much friendship, family and love before. I enjoyed this whole series and getting to know each of the main characters and seeing how their lives interconnected. Watching their families grow and all the children added to the mix was both special and hilarious at times. This book is full of bonding moments and milestones. In addition to all the babies (I mean these people seriously, I loved the addition of Hannah and Mia an ...more

A Wonderful End to an Amazing Series!

I seriously cannot come up with the words to express how much I loved this series and these characters. Through the good and the bad, they are a family! Much like the previous books in the series, this one takes you on an emotional roller-coaster of a ride. I am truly going to miss the whole gang and their families.

Wonderful!!! 5 stars

I can't wait to read about the lives of the kids of these families all grown up one day!!

I loved looking into April and Jake's family life. Just proves, no matter how much money you have, it doesn't solve everything. (Though it helps!!!)

April, with her amazing insight, personality, attribute and wisdom that make her a great friend, she still has insecurities. And Jake, as gorgeous and awesome as he is, he can still be cocky and hurtful. They both h
