Dear Santa,

Please bring me a new boss for Christmas. Mine is the worst. The worst, hidden in a six foot tall package of male perfection. It’d be easier if he looked like an old Scrooge, wouldn’t it?

Nick Saint-Croix doesn’t look like an old scrooge. He’s hot as-

Um, never mind. Just bring me a new boss. Please.

It feels like Christmas has come early this year, getting a new Jana Aston read that is holiday themed! I was so excited to read this. It was funny, short, sweet, and steamy and put me in the holiday spirit!

Holly Winters loves Christmas more than just about anything. She lives in a Christmasy town, has a Christmasy name, and even a Christmasy job. Her boss though, he’s a bit of a grinch. Or at least she thinks he is. Nick Saint-Croix and Holly go on a work trip to Germany and things

Nothing makes me happier than a new romantic comedy from Jana Aston, and I was practically levitating when The Boss Who Stole Christmas landed on my eReader. Not only does it have the laugh-out-loud humor, scorching-hot sexy times, sigh-worthy romance and captivating banter that I expect from Aston, but it’s also overflowing with Christmassy schmaltz. It’s the first of three standalone books in the holiday-inspired Reindeer Falls series and they’re all releasing in November. Does it get any ...more

2nd read:
This was a fun book in audiobook form. Erin Mallon is one of my favorite narrators and she made Holly’s character even funnier.

1st read:
What a fun little read this was. I'm a huge fan of Christmas and this was the perfect read to get me ready for the Christmas season. Honestly, I wanted to jump right into the book and live in Reindeer Falls. I want to be best friends to Holly and her sisters, and ogle the hot and sexy Nick. I know he belongs to Holly, but a woman can still enjoy the

This was a fun quick sexy Holiday read.

The Holidays seem to be a stressful time for many. And some get down right crabby and need something to release that stress and Aston did that with this novella. This was a cute fun quick read that will put a smile on your face. And will have you laughing out loud and getting you in the Holiday spirit. The h names are super cute. I finished in one sitting. Once I started there was no putting it down until I was finished. I can't wait to read the sisters

LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!! This is what I want my Christmas novellas to be. Hilarity, heat and ho ho hoing...

Nick and Holly's story is a perfect Christmas tale for me. Slightly quirky/funny girl and her brooding/alpha boss. It's a match made in a German Christmas Market!

Throw in a spot of inappropriate finger action on a church balcony, some taxi cab shenanigans and two sisters who are so funny I am legit dying for their books and Jana made me a very happy little elf! Can't wait for book 2.

4 Hot Grinch Stars

I am officially moving to Reindeer Falls where everyone is on Christmas crack and fluffy waffles are on the menu. In a land where parents name their children Ginger, Noel and Holly Winter, I was hopeful for some seriously funny banter and sexually charged Christmas innuendoes, and am happy to proclaim that I got them.

Holly Winter works for the insufferable Nick Saint-Croix. With his grumpy personality, it's ironic that the 'hot grinch' runs a toy company. Regardless of how

Love love love! Such a cute small Christmas story.
Holly Winter (could you get a more festive name, brilliant!) works at the toy factory in the small town of Reindeer falls, her boss is super hot but also the grinch in disguise - in Hollys opinion.
A business trip together reveals a whole other side to Holly’s grinch of a boss, it turns out he has a really sweet side and has wanted to kiss Holly since the first day he saw her. It turns into a steamy business trip and it’s just aswell Holly has

Jingle jingle my tits tingle!!! The Boss Who Stole Christmas is everything a Hallmark movie should be!

Full of festive frolics, Jana's newest series of short festive reads have got off to bang a real cracker of a read! I totally adored Nick and Holly, they are uber sexy, funny and romantic, you can't but rejoice in Holly's love of Christmas and all things Reindeer Falls, and Nick's giant Bratwurst hell I'd move there tomorrow.

4.5 Stars

First things first - because it seems like you can't find this information anywhere in the description (at least not on GR) - this is a NOVELLA. If I didn't follow Jana Aston on social media and knew this fact before reading, my rating could have been very different. In case you missed the memo, I HATE novellas due to the fact that they (almost?) always contain insta-love. Normally, I'd avoid them but it seems like in this case, my love for the hate-the-boss-trope was bigger than my

4.5 Hot Christmassy Stars

“Miss Winter.”
‘My thoughts are interrupted by none other than the Grinch himself. His voice is just as disarming as his looks. Smooth and confident. Seductive, like a plate full of your favourite Christmas cookies.’

The Boss who stole Christmas by Jana Aston is the most perfect sweet, funny and sexy hit of Christmas spice you could want. It should come with a warning of a Hallmark Christmas romance causing sporadic knickers meltdown. To be fair, unless you love Christmas
3 stars.
1st of three "Holiday" romance novellas from Jana Aston.

Unfortunately this first one was somewhat short on actual storyline and character development but big on descriptiveness and setting up the scene, so much so in fact that at almost the halfway point in the story- very little had really happened yet.

Nonetheless this is Jana Aston so it still had that sexy, funny and quirky-cute vibe that she is well known for. Holly "Mistletoe" Winter and Nick Saint-Croix , how about that for MC
A short, cute, fun, sweet, funny and fluffy holiday read. Loved it and I’m looking forward to the next one.

Cute Christmas-y quickie.

Quick and cute. Grumpy boss and employee who loves Christmas. They work at a toy company. Of course they end up together. Quick read to enjoy if you’re in the holiday mood.

With a town name like Reindeer Falls, you know the inhabitants must be crazy about Christmas! In Jana Aston’s latest novella, The Boss Who Stole Christmas, her heroine, Holly Winter is definitely a fanatic for the holidays.

The Boss Who Stole Christmas is a spicy version of the usual holiday romance. In the story, the Winter sisters, Holly, Ginger, and Noel, are introduced. I loved their cute names, and their sisterly teasing is fun. Holly Winter works for the Reindeer Toy Company, and her boss,

He obliges and dips his head to mine, one hand cupping the back of my neck and the other brushing softly against my jaw. Then he kisses me. I missed the feel of his lips on mine. Missed the feeling of my body pressed against his. Missed him.
And now he’s all mine. Merry Christmas to me.

I read Jana Aston’s book a long time ago and I really enjoyed them. So, when I heard about this one, I was so excited and anxiously waiting. This one was clearly a enjoyable read

I just gave 5 stars to a Christmas book. I don't even particularly LIKE Christmas books. Don't get me wrong, I don't avoid them...but I also don't get excited when they start appearing. And, I can say with a lot of certainty that I have never given one a 5 star rating.

That said, I genuinely enjoyed this.

When Jana Aston writes a book, she's all in. She invests in the story she tells and it's evident in this book.

Christmas books, in my opinion, use the season as a

*I received a free copy of The Boss Who Stole Christmas. This has in no way influenced my voluntary review which is honest and unbiased.*

This story was just what I needed! I needed a light, fluffy, humorous feel-good romance. And that's exactly what I got! Sometimes, reading a favorite author's book is like coming home after being away for a long time. And that's exactly how I feel after finishing Holly and Nick's story. I'm sighing and smiling to myself writing this, because I just feel happy

This is a short fab fun read and my first Christmas romance of the year.

It’s what I think of as the perfect 3* read. There’s no depth or real story. But the characters are likeable and it’s a fun, hot Christmas read. It’s not a book I’ll re-read but I will be continuing on with If You Give A jerk a Gingerbread.

While I enjoy Christmas romances, I was seriously needing one that was lighthearted, fun and completely drama free. As soon as this one popped up, I knew it was the one. How right I was!

With a name like Holly Winter, how could this heroine be anything other than all about Christmas, all year around. She loves working for the Reindeer Toy Company but isn’t fond of her Grinchy boss, at all. Except for the way she often has inappropriate fantasies about him. When she’s forced into a work trip with

Nick's actions tend to make sense once he explains some things, "it's not a scowl when it's directed at you. It's pent -up sexual frustration," he murmurs into my ear." Nick doesn't having bragging issues, nope not him, "twice," he points out, after a short pause. "You slept with me twice. And you came four times." This was a quick read and I loved the characters, Holly could be quite awkward to the point of cuteness.

Just in time for the holidays Jana Aston, Rom-Com writer extraordinaire, has written this delightful love story that makes you all warm and fuzzy one moment and rolling with laughter the next. This is a Halmark-ISH story that's got actual kissing and it's definitely sexy.

Nick Saint-Croix has come back to Raindeer Falls to run the family business that is the Flying Reindeer Toy Company after his uncle retired.

Holly Winter loves Christmas every day of the year! She works at the Flying Reindeer

This was a solid *5 Novella Stars*

The MC's, Nick and Holly, were very likable and well developed despite the short length of the story. She also even figured out how to successfully create side characters that you want to read about later in their own stories, which is hard to do in such a short number of pages. The plot was well-paced and peaked in all the appropriate places. One of my favorites from this author in it's column.

It was like a really cute perfect Hallmark movie, but with humor

grumpy/sunshine + a lot of Christmas stuff, that's all you need to know about this book.

I want to start this saying that this isn't a full length book, and it's actually more of a short novella, so it really can be read it in one sitting.
this book was really funny, the main characters were adorable, and even if we don't have a lot of time to know them, the way Jana Austen writes them makes you like them immediately. I felt like I was watching one of those cheesy Christmas movies it was really
