New Year’s Negotiation by Kate Allenton

Favorite Quotes:

It was an unfamiliar feeling and one that would pass like my New Year’s resolution to exercise.

“That woman was downright rotten. She said what she meant and meant what she said. She was the strongest and most stubborn woman I’d ever met.” “Then why’d you marry her?” Ben chuckled in passing on his way toward the kitchen. “I had to. She hogtied me on our first date and owned more guns than I did.”

This was my first time reading Kate

Review of ~ For One Night Only by Carrie Elks

I love Carrie’s work but I wanted to cry at the end of this novella, because the potential for a longer story including this couple was huge (everything crossed we get more in the future).

It was going to be a long eight hours…

I adored Carys and Jesse, and the opposites-attract connection that grows between them over the course of a night. One that’s partially spent stuck

**** New Year’s Negotiation by Kate Allenton****

So as far as a short story goes, it doesn’t get better. Lizzy is a detective that had love once but a lot of interferences and misunderstandings lead to heart break. Ben comes back into her life after a drunken walk in town and now she’s stuck with him for the night. Lizzy really has walls built up regarding Ben and no wonder. Things aren’t as they seem though and once the air is cleared, love
can once again blossom.

Wild Honey by Sarah Hegger is the only story in the 12 Nights of Christmas Anthology that I have read. After reading Honey and Oliver's story, I'm looking forward to reading the remaining stories.

I really enjoyed reading Honey and Oliver's story. They have a big storm going on, a stuck elevator, a yoga instructor, an OCD business man, and magical fruitcake. What else do you need for a wonderful holiday story.

Sarah Hegger has written great characters for her anthology piece as always. Honey and Oliver were fun to read. They had fantastic depth, and to have it portrayed in such a short story was brilliant. It was wonderful to watch them evolve together and the passion I could feel bubbling under the surface was very well done.

I was excited to see that Stacy Finz contributed a story to this anthology. Her story, Rekindled: December 31st, is the only one I have read.

Branna and Drex are divorced but both attending their mutual friends' New Year's Eve brunch. A faulty elevator, lingering feelings, and old hurts and frustrations come together to make a wonderful second chance story.

I sometimes have issue with short stories or novellas due to underdeveloped characters or plot. While this is definitely not a full length nov

I received an ARC of Kate Allenton’s “New Year’s Negotiation” and I loved it! It was a sweet romance of separated young lovers who have been reunited. It is a short novella that is included in a 12 Days of Christmas anthology. I look forward to reading the rest of the stories!

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Rekindled: December 31st by one of my favorite Authors, Stacy Finz. This story is part of anthology by some very good authors. Its a sweet love story involving fruitcake, elevators and love that got off the track but somehow rights itself. A quick read, but worth the time. Dex and Branna are both driven in their careers but at what cost? A New Year's romance that's makes you believe in love again.

Wild Honey by Sarah Hegger is a fantastic story. Ms. Hegger has given readers a well-written story filled with lovable, fun characters. Honey wants to keep her yoga studio where it is. Oliver wants her business gone. Honey and Oliver's story is loaded with drama, humor and a little heat. This is a quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time. I loved reading Wild Honey and look forward to my next book by Sarah Hegger. Wild Honey is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

New Year's Negotiations by Kate Allenton
Lizzie and Ben have a past. One that ended on such a note of misunderstandings. I love Lizzie's snarkiness and Ben's determination. This was a romance that was so much fun to read. Lizzie fighting tooth and nail against Ben, and Ben being stubbornly determined to get the girl. I can't wait to see what other shenanigans are in store in this book.

i got a sneak peek at Unexpected Daddy by Gemma Brocato - Great, quick read with the perfect happy ending! College sweethearts Harper and Braden allow another’s bitterness to drive them apart. 5 years later, Harper returns home after her mother’s death, with Braden’s son in tow. The sparks are still there and Christmas miracles do happen. Looking forward to reading the rest of the stories as the "magical fruitcake" premise is intriguing!!

I had the pleasure of reading an ARC copy of WILD HONEY by SARAH HEGGER. What a great story! The characters were well developed and relatable. It's interesting how the author played to our preconceived notions of how these characters should be based on their career choices and then gave us different personalities altogether. The chemistry between Oliver and Honey was there from the first moment and made for a wonderful read. There were a few brilliant touches that I can't post without creating s ...more

Scrooge You [December 25], MK Schiller
Three stars
A retelling of A Christmas Carol. Sweet story about workaholic Eva and her boyfriend Jack.

Unexpected Daddy [December 26], Gemma Brocato
Three stars
Harper lets her boyfriend go so he can pursue his dreams without letting him know she's pregnant. Braden runs into her when they're both back in town five years later. Again, a sweet story, but it seemed like a fast-forward through the recognition and reconciliation...

Playing House : January 2nd by Kim Golden

A little bit of Christmas magic conspires to bring Cassie Delk and her first real love Michael Holgersson back together in this short but sweet holiday romance. It was always evident to Cassie that Michael was the one for her when she lived in Sweden. However, out of fear she chose comfort and what she thought was predictability, moving back to the states and choosing to marry another man. Years later after they have both married and divorced other people

This review is based on one story only. I am reviewing "New Years Negotiation" by Kate Allenton.

It's New Years Eve and Elizabeth Cross is sitting on her deck, watching the party on the beach. She received a fruitcake and four little bottles of bourbon from an unknown person in Delilah's Cove, Oregon when she lives in North Carolina. The enclosed card said it was sent with magic and love.

She blows it off and starts eating it while watching the craziness. She gets a surprise when her doorbell ring

Playing House by Kim Golden is a hit. I have to tell you, I am usually a lover of dark, erotic and paranormal, but this was so cute 😄. The seamless way you implied them making love is an art and you nailed it! Contrary to what I normally go for, you gave me just enough that it gave me what I needed to visualize the act. The premise of the story that love has no limit even if there’s distance, an satisfied ex that wants his cake and to eat it too, and the mystery package that randomly appears out ...more

Pretty hard to review an anthology, but I do have to say that I liked the continuity of the fruitcake in each of the novella's. It really connected them despite the characters and their story lines being so different. I wish that some of the novellas were a bit longer, as they had the potential to be a full out novel. However, overall, it's a wonderful read, pretty uplifting and light.I think my favourite was "Scrooge You" simply because I love the Scrooge and the turnaround that ends with a lit ...more

****Review for One Night Only by Carrie Elks, I was lucky enough to get an ARC in exchange for my review! Thank You****

I'm not normally one for short stories but this was spectacular. It was an intense short story.

Carrie Elks has captured the chemistry, the tension and the hint of something special within a few pages. Her writing style grabbed me within moments of starting and left me wanting more. I would happily read a full sized book about Carys and Jesse.

Everything in this story just works.

I received an advance copy of - "Book of Love” by Cd Brennan.
The characters are well developed, the plot is fast-moving and the whole story is great!
I want to spend more time in this small Michigan town and meet everyone - but most importantly, I want to spend another evening with Mel and Nick. They're HOT!

Also "Unexpected Daddy" by Gemma Brocato which was fabulous!
Harper and Braden and Kai are my new favorite family! Their Christmas story was heartwarming and extremely sexy.

Christmas in September is the best idea ever. The joy and love of this time of the year is worth a good read with twelve sweet love stories. The one that I liked the most, even if it’s difficult to choose is the story of Donovan and Bailey from Kristi Rose. A really good read.

I received an ARC of Rekindled from Stacy Finz; that is the only story in this anthology that I have read, though I love the premise that links the stories, that magical fruitcakes can bring couples together. Because Christmas. And fruit cake!

I love Stacy’s novels; I’ve read every one of them. One of the reasons I one-click her books is because she’s so very good at writing characters who are unique, interesting, and utterly human. Branna and Drex have been divorced a year, but end up invited to

Wild Honey by Sarah Hegger, is a perfect lunch sized bite of story. It features enemies to potential and forced proximity. While it doesn’t end, it is the perfect beginning to a great romance.

I have had the opportunity to read a couple of the shorts in this set as arcs. Gemma Brocato is one of my faves and never fails to give a great story. Just for her sweet short that I wish were longer this set is worth it.
