Kate McMurry
Christmas novella. Hero is a building contractor and widower, and heroine is a retired ballroom dancer and current high school dance instructor. Neither is looking for love.

For those who don't like f-bombs, everyone in this book spouts them, frequently and intrusively.

Love, love, loved this sweet Christmas book by SE Rose!! Although I wasn’t surprised because I’ve loved everything I’ve read from this amazing author so far!

Addison isn’t looking for love...especially not her sisters jerk of a neighbor. Mason has been struck by tragedy and the last thing he’s looking for is a woman. Especially his neighbors sister who declares them frenemies. But sometimes the least expected happens.

This short story definitely will put you in the holiday mood and keep you turni
Cutish holiday romance

This story has all the right elements - believable characters, romance, holiday season but I honestly struggled with too much swearing. I get a story with a few choice swear words in a couple places but this one has too many for my taste. It took away from the cute plot and romance. Rose is a good author and her stories, without the swearing, would probably get five stars from me.

The Tinsel Tango by S.E. Rose is an enemies to lovers, romantic comedy, holiday novella told in dual POV.

While housesitting for her sister, Addison has a run in with the neighbor, Mason, and first impressions are not good. In fact, she thinks he's a big jerk. United by a common goal, she declares them to be frenemies. Joined by proximity and purpose, anything can happen - and does!

This was a quick, sweet, fun, Christmastime read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I'm sorry but I honestly did not enjoy this novella. I thought the story was corny and it was so obvious as to what was going on with Addison, Mason, Theo and Elle. By the way, I really did not like any of the characters. It was all so childish. The Hero/Heroine came across as teenagers, especially Addison and there was absolutely no connection or chemistry between her and Mason which made it hard to believe they were in love with each other. Total bore and so very lame.

My first book by this author and I was really impressed. It was a very good read, one that kept me interested and the main characters were really good also. I would certainly recommend this book to my friends.

Christmas love

Addie is house/dog sitting for her sister over the holidays. Mason, the neighbor, first thinks she is breaking into the house. They don't hit it off until they decide to act as matches for her best friend and his cousin.

When diving into a rom-com by this author you know hijinks and hilarity will ensue, so expect no less from The Tinsel Tango.
A fun holiday novella that is an easy escape from holiday stress. Taking a small world situation and setting the scene for sweet, sexy, and laugh out loud moments.

I loved this book! I think enemies to lovers is such a fun theme. I enjoy the twists and turns as the story develops. This was a quick but enjoyable read. My only complaint would be that it was over too soon. I would love to know what happens with Addie and Mason.
