Mistletoe and Mr. Right is a compilation book of two short stories. The first, Mistletoe and Mr. Right is about Jessica. The second, Sleigh bells and Second Chances is about her roommate, Christina. I like short stories but I always end up wishing that they were longer. This one, where the story continued after the first story ended was the best of both worlds.
In Mistletoe and Mr. Right, Jessica follows her boyfriend, Brennan, home to Ireland to surprise him for Christmas. She wasn’t invited and he didn’t know she was coming. This story was extremely well written. Jessica’s awkwardness was so hard to read! I had to put down the book multiple times because I just couldn’t stand what a mess she was. She doesn’t know the customs. Brennan has never told his family about her. No one knew she was coming. It was like my worst nightmare. Grady says it best in chapter two, “So, you just thought you’d pop in, huh? That’s a great plan. Guy’s love that.” Everything tuns out fine in the end. This story was sweet and perfect. I just had such a hard time reading it.
The second story, Sleigh bells and Second chances was my favorite of the two. I didn’t cringe or have to put the book down at all when I was reading it. Christina has procured an internship with the hottest band in the world and will be helping with the PR for their Christmas charity concert. The only problem is the lead singer is Cary White, the boy who broke her heart. This was such a sweet book. I absolutely loved Cary. He knew what he wanted right from the beginning and wasn’t afraid to tell Christina how he felt.
I’ve never read a Lyla Payne book before so this author was totally new to me. I will definitely be looking up more of her books in the future! Thanks to Hannah, The Irish Banana for the opportunity to participate in this Blog tour!...more

One Sentence Review: I loved this book!
I am a huge fan of Mercedes Lackey. I’ve read her 500 Kingdom’s series, The Elemental Masters, The Obsidian Universe and, of course Valdemar. If you are a fan of fantasy novels, then you have probably at least heard of Mercedes Lackey because her work is ubiquitous in this genre. That being said, I thought Hunter was completely different than anything of hers that I’ve read before. Its not too often when a book blindsides me the way that Hunter did. It was such a pleasant surprise!
This book really blends genres.; its ya, its fantasy, its cyberpunk, its dystopian. It has so many things going for it! When the book opens, it starts out with the main character, Joy on a train. She’s traveling from her tiny, mountain town and she’s been summoned by her uncle to the city to join the Hunter Corps. She isn’t ready and she doesn’t want to leave but she has no choice. She’s only called to enter the Hunter Corps because she is the chosen companion of otherworldly hounds. Every Hunter works as a team with their hounds. Joy and her hounds work together to protect the people still alive after the Diseray from evils that cross through the barrier between the worlds.
First of all, let me assure you, this book does not end in a cliffhanger ending. I knot hat bothers a lot of people and it’s the new in thing. However, there were tons of unanswered questions. There is plenty of room for a sequel and I definitely can’t wait to see what happens next. I also loved the ending. From the beginning I thought I had it all figured out. I was predicting the ending in my mind from the very start and I was wrong! Imagine my surprise when the story went a completely different direction at the end.
Highly recommend this book! If you like fantasy or dystopian, you should check it out!...more
