Six standalone holiday short stories!
The Merry Mistake by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward
Note to self: Ask Santa for glasses this year. When I accidentally mistook a gorgeous man resting outside my building for a homeless person in need of lunch, we got into it. I’d only been trying to do a good deed around the holidays, but he called me righteous. I called him something far worse. If only I didn’t have to see him again. But fate had other plans.
Finding Perfect by Colleen Hoover
A short story that brings back several of Colleen’s most beloved characters. Told from the point of view of Daniel from Finding Cinderella, readers will finally get the story they’ve been begging for more of. For the best reading experience, make sure you’ve read all three books that come together to make up this heartwarming and fun holiday short story; Finding Cinderella, Hopeless and All Your Perfects.
A Rock Chick Christmas by Kristen Ashley
What’s Christmas with the Starks like? Get a peek into the Rock Chick world and how Luke copes with Ava going Christmas gaga and just what he will, and won’t, do for his girls during the holidays.
Just Say When by Jill Shalvis
When the one you want …
Is the one you can’t seem to have…
Can love conquer all?
The Pact by Elle Kennedy
Thanks to my hectic schedule as a pro hockey player, my girl and I are spending more time apart than together. Luckily, I have a solution—a romantic New Year’s Eve getaway in the mountains, just me and Grace and plenty of sexytimes. Except this blizzard has other ideas…
The Package by K. Bromberg
Christmas week can’t get any worse for Jules Jilliland. Dumped by her boyfriend, rear-ended on the freeway, and fired from her job, she finds herself stuck in an elevator with a handsome stranger. When their packages are accidentally swapped, will it end up being a misfortunate accident that suddenly brightens her holidays?
The Merry Mistake by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward – 4 Stars
The Merry Mistake is a cute and quick read. What else do you expect from this awesome writing duo? The Merry Mistake is almost the perfect length. Though, I wish there was another chapter or two.
Finding Perfect by Colleen Hoover – 5 Stars
Finding Perfect is a beautiful follow up to Finding Cinderella and All Your Perfects. It’s a story I didn’t know I needed until I read the last page.
Clocking in at only 122 pages, Finding Perfect brings readers back to the beginning with Six and Daniel. To be honest, I completely forgot about Six and Daniel and how their story was left unfinished. Finding Perfect’s conclusion is heartwarming, beautiful, and emotional. Hoover is able to communicate complex emotions in very few pages making it feel authentic and real.
A Rock Chick Christmas by Kristen Ashley – 2 Stars
I’ve never read anything by Kristen Ashley and I don’t think I will. This is obviously part of another story, but that’s not the reason I rated it 2 stars. I would not be able to enjoy a story with Luke Stark as the main character. #SorryNotSorry.
Just Say When by Jill Shalvis – 3 stars
In the opening chapter, I thought this was going to be a 5 star story. Just Say When has the perfect amount of miscommunication and complexity for a short story. Unfortunately, things wrap up too quickly. Just Say When would have really benefited from another chapter or two.
The Pact by Elle Kennedy – 5 stars
The Pact is easily the best story in this anthology! The Pact is a small add on to Grace and Logan’s story as they navigate the difficulties of the NHL lifestyle. It’s cute, fun, and sexy.
The Package by K. Bromberg – 3 Stars
The Package has a lot going on, which is why I rated it three stars instead of four stars. This could have easily been lengthened into a full-length novel that focuses on body image.
