***Spoilers please don't read if you don't like spoilers***

Well I have been putting off writing this review for 3 days now. I have been trying to decide how to rate a book that had me all over the place with my emotions. I have loved the Kavanagh's since book one. All four of the books before this one and the novella got a 4 or 5 star from me. I was so looking forward to this book. I figured it would be a little cute Christmas novella that would make the way for Jimmy or

OH, MY how I love this Irish Brood! This is the perfect look at the entire family over the past years... catching up with all of them... who is in a good place, who is finally making their relationships legal... and who is coming back to the fold to live in the hood once again.

I fell hard for this series and each entry had a central theme for each of the siblings with the core of the Father and Mother holding them all together. The family had eth

If you haven't read the first four books, STOP! You will be lost. There are so many spoilers in this one if you haven't read the previous books.

I snot-ed and cried and laughed and then did it again. This book has so many emotions. Most important one was erkedness (is that a word?). It's not for anything in the book, but the note Ms. Robinson puts at the beginning. It starts with her saying she isn't planning on doing the last two stories at this time. She does include thos

Thank you Season Publishing for providing an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

You are in the treat for the fifth and final book of the Kavanagh Legends series as it contains epilogues for all the couples plus Seamus, Dee, Casey and Jimmy have their own point of views. In the spirit of Christmas, they celebrated it with both ups and downs. There are several reasons why I love the Kavanaghs. They're hospitable, respectful, warm, and humble. Surrounding themselves with love, suppo

I do love the Kavanagh clan!

I loved catching up with them but dammit this one got me right in the feels!! I had a few laughs but even more tears.

I am sad to see this series come to an end but I enjoyed the ride!
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Author Sarah Robinson wraps up the Kavanaugh Legends series in Kavanaugh Christmas which takes place largely over one Christmas holiday and then with one heck of an epilogue over a decade in the future. This was a sentimental journey in which we see all the couples from the previous books and their significant others and children and we get to see more on the youngest son, Jimmy and their cousin, Casey and while I would have loved them to each have their own complete story I was happy with how

Loved, loved, loved! I've enjoyed this big rowdy family since the very first book and this story was a wonderful way to catch up with all the characters we've grown to love. This story has all the emotions going. There us new love, new life, joy , sadness, homecoming, and heartache but as always the Kavanagh's stand as one and celebrate and cry together. This is a wonderful story for the season and one that shouldn't be missed. I highly recommend it.

Thanks to for the ARC of this fabulous book.
What a great way to wrap up a series. This book is full of heart and family. You will need some tissues and your heart will break but I could not love this series any more. The joy and pain this family goes through during this book just makes you appreciate everyday you have with your family. I love that this book is told from multiple points of view, it just makes it so special. The epilogue had me in tears again and it was perfect!

Wow!! One big epilogue all set around Christmas! LOVED this one! Great ending to the series. The story is told in multiple POV and everybody has something to say. Good news, sad news, hope and the love of family all prevail. Thank you so much for bringing us the Kavanaghs. So sad to see their story end. Great way to wrap up a series.

Kavanagh Christmas is the finale of this epic and most definitely favorite series whose stars were the swooning, panties-destroyers Kavanagh brothers.

Over the course of this series, I have not only fallen in love with each Hero and heroine, but I have fallen deeply in love with the Kavanagh family as a whole. Their bond is so strong and they have shown it with each novel. The love they share and the strength of their support system is unlike any other. Each time they banded together to help one of their own melted my heart and only intensified my love for every one of these characters.

OK, I cannot tell a lie. I did not read the first four books of this series. Yes, I know, spoilers and all that. In my opinion this is a good thing regarding my review. I am going into this book totally blind, no preconceived perceptions of the book. This is the first book I am reading by Sarah Robinson, and let me tell you I am VERY MUCH blown away by the depths of her story. Kavanaugh Christmas is an EXTREMELY emotional read.

I have loved this series so when i heard we were getting too catch up with our favourite family in a Christmas special i couldn't wait. This might be a short catch up with each couple but it really packed a whole lot of emotion!!

Because this is a novella i'm not going to give you each couple's catch up. I will say sit back relax have your tissues at the ready because this family will make you Laugh, Cry, Swoon, Break your heart and build it back up again. Get ready to fall in love all over again

Sarah Robinson brings back the crazy, lovable Kavanagh family for one more novella with Kavanagh Christmas and it definitely doesn’t disappoint. Told from multiple points of view, readers get to enjoy another look at Rory and Clare, Kieran and Fiona, Kane and Nora, Quinn and Kiera, and the rest of the crew settled into their happily ever afters. In true Kavanagh fashion, this novella isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Unafraid to get real and raw, Sarah Robinson hits readers with some tough stuff ...more

Christmas is that time of year where family gathers and hearts are filled with love. In the Kavanagh family that is multiplied by 1000. The unity built into the family by Dee and Seamus is one of an unbreakable bond and happiness. A love that fills the pages of this amazing and loving book that will bring tears of both joy and sadness to your heart and eyes. Reading how they brothers and Casey have grown into their own families and struggles is what a great holiday story should be about, add in ...more

So this is how a heart breaks. The Kavanaghs do everything big, including love. Therefore, it's fitting that they would say their goodbyes the same way they waved hello. Loud and proud. Ms. Robinson created a family that is far from perfect and have seen their share of heartache, but are grounded by love. They need each other, just like fans have come to need them. Cheers to the love, laughter and hard earned happily ever afters.

I entered into this one quickly with it being one of the few holiday ones I will read. This is set in a time calendar with them all in it this time. Far warning though do not read this in public like I did at times in my lunch room at work and when tears escaped had to down play it lol. So have a box of tissues handy it will take one or two. This was a delight with so much packed into this one it was overflowing. I felt as if I stepped into home though feeling as if I personally knew them all. M ...more

With Christmas fast approaching none of the Kavanagh family the spirit and joy of the holidays, however, fate has a certain way of bring everybody back to reality in what is the most important. This is the conclusion of the Kavanagh stories, and I love this series, and this is a very fitting end. This story is sweet, sexy, emotional, and heartfelt. I highly recommend this authors’ work for all readers, and look forward to reading more from her!

Right - this is not really a standalone book. Not in the same way that the others were. Even if you have read only one of the previous volumes, I think that you will derive a great deal of enjoyment from what is, essentially, a great big epilogue.

This is a wonderful drawing together of threads. Full of emotion from heartache to joy.

If you love the Kavanaghs, this is not one to miss.

If you haven’t read the previous four books then don’t read this one until you have as it does have spoilers.

I did this and got so confused with which family member was who and who they were with as each chapter was about a different Kavanagh.

Although this happened it was a really good get together for Christmas with the whole family attending, and it parts it was a bit weepy too.

I loved Dee Kavanagh and the way she talked in her Irish broa
I have been a fan of the Kavanagh clan since I read the very first book in the series. I have witnessed pain and joy with this special family, and it’s hard to say good-bye to them. However, Sarah Robinson gave them the perfect farewell!

The book is full of all the emotion, steam, and romance just like the all the other books in the series. It was wonderful catching up with them, and I loved that the chapters were told in alternating POVs. I was especially a fan of Dee’s, the matriarch. I got an

Bringing it home with the Kavanaugh clan. Oh what an emotionally sweet, sexy, read that shows so much love and devotion between this group that is neither patient or without expectation.

Bittersweet review.... I have to say farewell to one of my favorite literary families, The Kavanaghs. They went out with a bang and boy was I in tears from the emotions that ran through my body. I cursed the author I know seven times and trust, I kept count. The holidays will never be the same but this will always be a book I read every Christmas holiday from now on.

I would have to say the fear was real. I felt every parent emotion and protection from start to finish. What sealed it for me and

From book one of this series Sarah Robinson has totally immersed us in The Kavanagh Family.
We have met Dee & Seamus parents to this crew Rory, Kieran, Kane, Quinn, Jimmy & Casey. What we have also learned that these men and their cousin Casey have been all through their own ups and downs. We have met their significant others, their children and everything that has gone on in there lives throughout the years.
What The Kavanagh Christmas gives us though is where they have all ended up and
What a wonderful way to wrap up a terrific series! If you haven’t read this series yet, go back and read every wonderful story and then top it off with this very heartfelt novella.

I fell in love with this family more and more as I read each book. This one though, wow! I laughed at all the banter and outrageous things this family says and does, I swooned as the brothers courted their wives, and I cried throughout the book. There are so many touching moments.

I hated to say goodbye to this series,
