I can't with irony of h and H names. Lol But it fits so perfectly.
Cold is grumpy, like almost grinch grumpy. But it always fun to watch these types to start melt. Like they can still be grumpy, but also sweet. That mix is magic.
Joycelyn is charming, cheerful and christmas obsessed. I say obsessed, because, while each their own and that's okay, but for me too much of ho ho ho (OMG my phone almost did dirty for me. 😂 ) going on. I guess, I have a bit of grinch in me. Lol

Oh killjoy

I loved this from the first moment Joy was on her hands and knees scrubbing the floor with her jingle bells thong showing above her Xmas pjs, wearing her snowman earbuds.... To the very last quickie on Cold's desk.

This book is part of the Mistletoe Montana series. Each book can be read as a standalone but some of the books are connected. Cold Killjoy is a member of Trigger Pull MC. He is a nomad. When he notified that his father has been in an accident, he decides its time to go home again. He wasn’t prepared for what he finds. Jocelyn is a helpful neighbor. She cracks the cranky man next door till he is nice to her. Then she meets Cold. He is just like his father except for the way he makes her feel. Thi ...more

I grabbed this book because it had Joy in the title and I'm glad I did - It turned out to be a phenomenal short read. The story is well written with wonderful characters that take you on an adventure full of drama, humor, action and romance.

Cold Killjoy left home after his mother died. He joined the Army and after one tour in Afghanistan he got out and joined Trigger Pull MC and became a Nomad. Years later he returns home to take over his dads garage.

Absolutely phenomenal! The holidays aren't always a joyous time, filled with wonderful memories and time spent with family. Cold came back to Mistletoe after being away for years when he got a call that his dad had an accident. After they lost Cold's mom on Christmas Eve, the holidays are something to endure. Now its time to put the past behind him and be there for his dad, before its too late. He expected it to be hard coming home. What he didn't expect was a pretty little woman full of the Chr ...more
First things first; I love the cover of this book!
Cold killjoy is a novella in the ‘’mistletoe Montana’’ series. This story is short, fast paced and an enjoyable read. I read this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. I found the writing style easy to follow, the characters loveable and the storyline enjoyable. When Cold Killjoy’s father is injured, he moves his grumpy butt back home. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for his father’s cheerful neighbour.

I'm just gonna say it! I have read many Christmas stories over the holidays and I have loved them all, but Cold Killjoy has got to be one of my favorite ❤️ I absolutely loved everything about this book, from the first paragraph to the end. Simply fabulous!
Cold Killjoy is a lot of things, grumpy, at first maybe even a little mean! Then there's Joycelyn( Joy) she's witty, smart, funny and so cheerful. When grumpy meets cheerful it really is quite comical! Throw in Cold's father and his one liners

Loved this Christmas time MC Story. The author has given us the start of a new MC series in the town of Mistletoe Montana. A Place that celebrates Christmas pretty much 365 days of the year. The story is also a standalone in the Mistletoe Montana series. A series in which several authors bring us a story involving the town of Mistletoe, Montana in some fashion. Trust me if you haven’t read any of these books, you should - the ones

Mr. Cold Killjoy definitely got hit with a big dose of Joy when he met Joycelyn. This was a great holiday story full of Christmas love and cheer. When Cold met Joy, he melted for her right away and same with her. Even when Cold was showing his grumpy side, Joy knew he cared deep down with every wink or side smile. There was a bit of action but the story focused more on the connection between Cold and Joy. I loved how Cold came home to Mistletoe Montana not only to help his dad but also to settle ...more

Cold Killjoy is a wonderful addition to the Mistletoe Montana series. One cocky tattoed and pierced biker and lacking Christmas spirit, who will meet his match in a small spitfire of joy.

When Cold Killjoy goes back home after being away for years, he is ready to take over the family garage after his father had an accident. He is ready to permanently set home in Mistletoe by opening a chapter of Trigger Pull MC. What he didn't expect was to be attracted to Joycelyn Loftings, his father's neighbor

To give his best friend and love of his life a future with someone new, he takes the fall and goes to jail, for a crime he didn’t commit.
Years later he’s back, older, meaner, and built like a Mac truck, he doesn’t want to be bothered by no one from their hometown, that is until she calls and needs him.
Joycelyn, has always had it bad for the bad boy she knew growing up, and who was her brothers best friend. When her husband stole her son, she turned to the only person she could count on to help,

I've been reading the books in this series and I have to say, this is one of my favorites. The banter between Cold and Joycelyn is really great. She's all happy go lucky and Cold is grumpy and well.....Cold. He's come home to stay and run his father's mechanic business but something isn't adding up. When he fires one man, it puts Joycelyn in danger. And he can't have that. It's time to claim this woman for his own, but will she let him?

Joy is the happy spirit type of person who never lets anyone ruin her happy mood. Cold is just that.... Cold and grumpy just like his dad..
These two could not be anymore different from eachother, total opposite's in everyway. Joy was being a nice neighbor and helped out when her neighbor got injured and had no one else to help him out. Cold finding out his father broke his leg and arm comes back home to help out after being away for so long.

A new favorite author

Esther Schmidt is a new to me author and I’m so glad I found her work! I binge read all 17 books in the mistletoe series and I feel like the best was saved for last (I loved all of them of course). She’s able to add so much depth to her characters in such a short story which is amazing. I absolutely loved these two characters. Cold was awesome and knew what he wanted. And his dad was such a great side character. I’m off to read the rest of her Trigger series now!

Cold Killjoy is grumpy enough to live up to his last name. Joycelyn Loftings is determined to bring joy into the lives of those around her, even if it is her grumpy neighbor and his equally grumpy son.

Cold Killjoy is a quick sexy holiday read, with great characters that you will want more of.
I loved this installment of the Mistletoe Montana series and hope that this is the starting point of a new MC series.

OMG, I loved this book...100 Christmas Stars!!

I have read other MC stories and if this one was supposed to be serious, my way of reading is way off. I laughed my foolish head off. I enjoyed how Cold and Joy met. Just things that happened tickled funny bone. Maybe not Cold's fathers injuries, the punk doing his books and the little injuries inflicted but Joy over rode all of that. Thanks for such a fun time read. Written by Cindy :)

The Mistletoe Montana series are a group of Christmas stories written by a group of talented authors. Cold Killjoy is part of that series, also a standalone written by author Esther E. Schmidt. This is Cold and Joycelyn story! Killjoy is a nomad biker but also part of the Trigger Pull MC. Joy is his fathers very cheerful neighbor. The plot is fast pace and well written with wonderful characters. I look forward to reading more books about the new Trigger Pull MC; Mistletoe Montana Chapter!!!

Cold is the new hot’

I enjoy short, sweet romances with a strong alpha male and a sassy female, but am easily bored by the same old stuff. That was not a problem with this book. Cold and Joy’s story kept me engaged throughout and ticked all my boxes. It even comes with a laugh out loud, witty dialogue. If you like a little humor and just a touch of drama to add some spice, you will love this story. I certainly did.

Mistletoe, Montana is the place to be for this steamy, hot, insta-love Christmas read! See what happens when a grouchy biker moves back home to take care of his dad after having an accident. It will have you laughing at the witty banter between Cold and Joy. A little drama and mystery thrown in to have you turning pages to see what happens next.

Joycelyn and Cold's story was very entertaining. Joy was sugary sweet and obsessed with Christmas. Cold is crumby and cold until he meets Joy. There is some action, a lot of funny parts and a lot of hotness. I hope Esther continues with the chapter, I would love to see what happens with Otis, Reed, and Bowie. ...more

Excellent book

First of all, the sides name, Cold Killjoy is just fantastic!! He meets Jocelyn, who is helps his dad out and he is drawn to her. Cole is in an MC, but that doesn't really take a major role in this book. There is a bit of violence and cussing, but it was a good book. Very well written too!

OMG I absolutely loved this story what more can you ask for than hot sexy bikers and a Christmas live story all rolled into one great story. Killjoy and Joycelyn couldn’t be more different but it’s true what they say opposites attract. I truly hope there is more to come In This series it was that good.
