As a reader, I undrestand how hard it is to put 'everything' in a short story and deliver that same 'everything' to a reader with it.
But this one!!! Oh, wow! I haven't read a short story that good in a long time.

Nina Auril has done it again!

I think I'm a fan for life now :)

This is such an incredible novella holiday story that I loved every second in this story. Can't wait for more stories from Mayhem.

Cats are the best!!

Both prologue and epilogue are from THE Cat pov. And it is funny. This smart Cat decided he needed two owners, twice as fed... :) But going back and forth is fatiguing. So he decides that they all should live together in one house, and for that to happen, some kitty interference and Christmas magic will have to happen!!

Sooooooo, since this is a short story some insta love is to be expected, however there were some dots that were not well connected, I'm referring to the party s

Right off the bat I’m cracking up with Beauregard and his point of view on what’s happening. Hendrix is in the holiday spirit alright and I love what he does with Beau, it’s rare to see a man act in such a way. I myself am more like Ophelia when it comes to the vibes she feels for the spirit of the holiday. When you see texting messages in a book they’re a hit or a miss in my eyes and with this story I was in tears from laughing non stop, they’re priceless. Austin is one

This wasn't bad enough to stop reading, but wasn't good enough to make me want to read anything else by the author. I do appreciate the geek humor, and that's about it.

This boisterously merry novella is just what I needed during the hectic holiday season. As a cat owner who is pretty sure they're smarter than me most times, Mayhem Under the Mistletoe was right up my alley. The characters are fun and likable, the story is engaging, and the dialogue is witty and often, outright hilarious. This one isn't a hearts and flowers, sweet as sugar romance. Instead, it's a fast-paced tale of flirtation, attraction, a bit of misdirection, and passion. It's low on angst an ...more
This story is short, fast paced, festive and hilarious. I read this book in one sitting and wasn’t once bored. This book is the first book of Nina Auril’s and Abby Gale’s that I have read. I found the writing style easy to follow. The character’s loveable and the story hilarious. I really liked Hendrix and Ophelia. I liked how they met and the banter between them. Even through text, the chemistry between them was undeniable.
I really liked Beau/ Austin the cat. I liked getting his point of view

Yes please

Okay, so I'm in the middle of the eye doctors waiting room reading this fabulous book while I wait for my grandfather to finish appointment. I was laughing out loud while everyone looked at me like I was a crazy person. Do I care? Not at all, Lol! Then I would get quite and have a stupid smile on my face reading all the dirty bits. This book was amazing. I love how funny and sexy it was. I love love love Austin/Beau. A wonderful short read that I finished in one sitting. Can't wait to

This might be the best review that I've left for a novella. I don't generally like novellas. They tend to be too short for me. But I loved this one. The character development was so good that I was able to really connect with these guys. Hendrix and Ophelia are a match made in heaven but they just don't know it yet. When they finally find out that they've been inadvertently sharing their cat, they decide to let the other one have it for stealing their cat. By the time I was done with this, it fe ...more

Unique Take On A Holiday Story

Mayhem Under The Mistletoe is an unique take on a holiday story. This novella is a sweet and funny story about Hendrix and Ophelia. These two share a cat, but they don't know it. Will Beau / Austin be able to get Hendrix and Ophelia together? Mayhem Under The Mistletoe is a quick and entertaining read. Beau / Austin has his own POV in this story. I love that the authors gave interesting twist to this charming story. A hilarious, holiday themed book with a playful ca

My first read from this duo and I loved it! It was so cute and sweet, but plenty of heat too and so cute-funny! When I first read about this book prior to its release I knew I wanted to read it because as a cat lover I thought the premise was absolutely adorable and I was so right! Beau reminds me of Grumpy Cat lol so that aspect of it was pretty funny. Definitely going to check out more books by these authors.

I loved this Christmas novella so much.
It had that feel good factor and had me smiling whilst reading it.
These are new to me author but I can't wait to read more by these ladies.
Hendrix and Ophelia has a great story to tell and this was the perfect Christmas novella.
A sexy hot nerd,a sassy spitfire and an adorable cat make for the perfect trio of festive fun.
I hope there is a spin off from this novella.

I also loved the secondary characters Angela and Carter and I really hope they get a book!!! If you are looking for a quick and awesome read I HIGHLY recommend this book!!!

Nina Auril has a way with words! I can say by far my favorite character of this book is the cat, but I am sure I am not the only one! This is the perfect novella to ring in the christmas season! It has laughs, love, and a cat with a serious attitude problem. What else could you ask for!

This was cute, playful book with a quirky spin! The prologue & epilogue are told in Beau/Austin’s POV while the rest of the book is told in dual POV. The banter between Hendrix and Ophelia was entertaining and adorable! This was a fun quick Christmas read.
