If you are a fan of the Monroes, then you will love A Monroe Christmas. It really shows the love that they all have for one another. Are they dysfunctional as all hell? Yes they are but that is what makes them the Monroes. I am not one to read Christmas books but it’s The Monroes. There is always going to be drama and excitement but the most important is that there is always so much love for one another. They are easily my favorite book family!!! ❤❤ ...more

I was mega excited when I learned that there was going to be a Monroe novella, I just love this family so much!

This novella is obviously shorter than any Monroe novel but it is no less dramatic. It was action packed and brilliant. There was so much going on and it was exciting getting to catch up with everyone.

With the way this story went, I cannot wait for the other stories that were touched upon! Dylan and Brooke will always be my favourite couple and it was fantastic the way the chapters were

I was gifted an ARC for an honest review.

Sigh, it was great to be back with the Monroe's for Christmas. As expected it was not all plain sailing, there were a few hiccups along the way. The Monroe's could never have a quiet Christmas! The banter and love this family share is off the charts - was really good getting everyone's POV.

This novella laid the foundations for Michael's and Levi's books too - can't wait for those.

ARC received for honest review.
A little more from the drama filled lives of the Monroes and their extended family. This novella has as much drama as a full book. The Monroes do not disappoint when it comes to love, support,family and DRAMA. Everyone has a chance to express their opinions and feelings. There is a lot sweet thoughts among this cast of characters. The love and support they have for each other is amazing. Most of the mess from the last storm is cleared but new storms are coming for

This is just the perfect book that describes a little of everyone’s family at Christmas, the love, the fights, the food, and the misunderstandings and the Monroe’s have it in spades. This story includes pretty much everyone and what’s happening at Christmas and it will make you laugh and tear up a bit but in true Monroe fashion it will be a Christmas to remember.

The Monroe Series is a quick, entertaining novella that if you are a big fan of this series you will absolutely love this.

It's Christmas with the Monroe's and what would a family gathering be like without a little drama right??? Well there is definitely some drama in this book. Of course some of it we are already aware of if you have read the series.

Things might get a little worse before they get better but this book brings us everything that I love about this series. The drama, a little bit o

I can't say enough about this book. It hits You right in the feels and then knocks you drawers off with the sexiness! It covers so many on our Beloved Monroe's and gives a few new folks a quick spot light. You probably should just do yourself a huge favor and go get the whole Monroe family saga starting with Unsocial. Trust me, it is worth it! Excellent read by a fantastic authir

Nicole Dykes has done it again! She has become my one click author! I definitely love the Monroe's!! Getting a glimpse at their lives during Christmas was so much fun! As usual Mrs. Dykes writes an angst filled story that leaves you wanting more of every Monroe! I yelled at my kindle, wondering WTH was going on with Luke!!
Nicole has become a master at spinning an intricate tale of an unabashed family that loves hard and plays even harder.
Definitely worth the wait!!

It’s that time of the year! Brooke Monroe loves to cook and have the whole family gather together especially for the holidays.
Michael has been going through physical therapy after his accident and has been pretty rude to everyone. One evening during dinner he said some harsh words that left some family members upset with him. Now that it’s Christmas Michael doesn’t feel that the family want him to join them. Brooke has always had a soft spot for Michael and really wants him to be there at the d

I was so thrilled when I found out about this Christmas novella for the Monroes! I've fallen so in love with these characters. It's like they're actually family so I couldn't wait to dive in.

Despite the book being on the shorter side, it is after all a novella, it's filled to the brim with plenty of that special brand of angst and drama the Monroes are known for. And can we talk about the freaking awesome banter between this family? Nicole Dykes has found the perfect formula for making her char

Wonderful. I love how Nicole Dykes crafted this novella about the Monroe’s. We get to experience all the trials and tribulations for everyone at Christmas from each person’s POV. This is an incredible family, it’s unique in that not everyone is related by blood, but the bonds are just as strong. One of the main driving forces to this book is Luke and Hannah – will he propose, or won’t he? Will it be too late? Brooke and Dylan are facing the prospect of moving for Brooke to take on a new career c ...more

So before I start this review, I'd encourage you to read the Monroe series before starting this one. All the fun characters are in this one and even some new ones. I absolutely love that Nicole did this. Gives us a glimpse into what the Monroes do for Christmas and the little surprises that are happening in their lives. Nothing is ever boring and drama seems to follow them around wherever they go. This one has it sweet and drama moments. It shows us how much you have to fight to keep the ones yo ...more

Wow, once again the Monroe’s bring it from all sides, this Christmas novella is perfect for a little Monroe fix in your life. You get them all, every last one of the group. Updates and something we have all been waiting for, but don’t worry Nicole will treat you to a angry look at your kindle and some choice words before she gives in and gives us what we want, that’s part of her amazing spice and writing talents too. Micheal also becomes a little bolder and braver in this book. A Monroe Christma ...more

I truly recommend this book to those who have read the Monroe books. This book wraps up where they are now. Love how dysfunctional and imperfect the family is but still are tight nit and love one another. Finding out what happened next was a great Christmas surprise.

I do highly recommend that the Monroe series be read first to completely appreciate this book. While there is just a tad bit 0f info on how people met or how they got where they are now, the book can be better appreciated after the

I was so excited when I learned that there was going to a Monroe Christmas book !!

I’m relatively new to Nicole dykes work but Nicole is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors- I read the whole Monroe series in a few days , I couldn’t put the books down , as I fell in love with each character.
I would highly recommend reading the Monroe series first and to everyone that’s already familiar with the series you certainly know there going be plenty of Monroe drama .
it’s shorter than the other

I absolutely loved this story!! It was fantastic! I loved getting to catch up with all of the characters at Christmas time and as each chapter is told in a different point of view you really get to see them all. I loved the big event that happened and seeing Michael again after Chris and Amy's story. We get a few surprises thrown in that more will come with the next 2 books. This was a great little read and I can't wait for the next one to come back and be able to spend more time with the Monroe ...more

Loved, loved, loved this sweet novella. This is the first time I have read anything by this author and now I'm hooked. Already brought the book Unsocial to read next!
I loved the Monroe family and I especially loved the alternating POV's in this book. I don't know which Monroe brother I love the most as they are all fantastic. I am excited to read their individual stories.
Nicole Dykes is a superb storyteller and certainly knows how to capture the readers attention.

It was amazing to be able to spend Christmas with the Monroes, and for each character in the series to have their own chapter?! Wow Nicole it was amazing! We got to see a little more from Michaels side, see that he isn’t always as hostile as he has been made out to be. And Levi 🤭 holyyyy **** he has some secrets that will make his book interesting! I can’t wait to see what else is in store for the Monroes!

I must be honest and say that I'm not a fan of the cover and that it does not portray anything that happens on the inside. The book is so much more! I would recommend that you read all the books in the series to appreciate this book. I love the Monroe family and this book is overflowing with oohs and aahs and unexpected surprises and some long awaited happenings....without spoiling anything for anyone...THIS BOOKS IS AWESOME!!!! I could't put it down. Well done to an amazing author for deliverin ...more

What a storyline! I absolutely loved how the writer Nicole brought all of the lives together in the Christmas storyline. It updated us on everyone in the family. I love this family and it feels like they are real. Their personalities are amazing and very loving. My favourite is Dylan and Brooke. They have truly grown the most in this series and bloomed as a family in more ways than one. I am hoping that Nicole is able to expand on the family and keep us updated on their lives. Nicole is a wonder ...more

This book is a fantastic Christmas novella featuring the family that we’ve come to love. It may be short but it still packs all the drama from the Monroe’s that we’ve come to expect.
I love this bunch so much!
It was great to get an update from all of them as well as a hint of what’s to come. Anyone else waiting with baited breath? I just know it’s going to be epic!

I was given an ARC copy, from the Author, to read and post an honest review.
There was so much perfection inside this novella. It is packed full of Monroe Drama and Loyalty. It gives a peek into all her characters in the Monroe series. wrapped in Christmas magic, or is it Christmas miracles? You will laugh, you will cry! I absolutely loved it! Thank you Nicole for another amazing book!!

Nicole Strikes Again

What started off as a drama ridden storyline, turned out to be a perfect, heartwarming read.

I absolutely adore the Monroes and i have from the start. This story gives you a huge shock. When you believe one thing is going to happen, erm nope, Nicole one ups it.

The perfect mix of shock gasps and smiles from happiness, this book leaves you craving more. But then again, i say this after every single Monroe book haha.

A brilliant read as always ❤

This is my first read by this author and definitely will NOT be my last. I thought i would be confused with the many Pov's but I loved how it gave just enough back story to each character to feel connected to them. I feel like this could be read as a stand alone and will definitely leave you wanting to know each character more. Family, drama, love and holidays = 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I was so excited to read this and it definitely did not disappoint. I love how it had a little bit of everyone from the Monroe and even the Adamson family. I seriously can not wait to read the next books in each series.
Nov 30, 2017 rated it it was amazing
I just love this novella that encompasses all the Monroes points of view plus a few other members of the family. Families can have joyous times and also be the source of so much pain. When you get down to it, family sticks together and supports each other. The Monroes are a shining example of this. Looking forward to more stories about the Monroes and their extended family.

I grew up in a small rural town in Kansas and currently live in a suburb of Kansas City. I love to read books that have main characters that are seriously flawed. I love to write and have been writing since I was in grade school.

I'm a mama first but spend my nights writing all the stories 💜

When I wrote the first book in my Monroe Family Series I never dreamed it would be a 10 book series and have
