Ho ho holy hotness—those were the first words out of Nola’s mouth the first time she saw Soren walk up the length of her driveway.

The Christmas Letter by Natasha Madison
Writing my boss a Christmas letter declaring my love for him was not my finest moment. Neither was accidentally mixing it with his files before handing it to him. Now I have to sneak back into his office at night to get it back. What can go wrong?
Lights Out Love – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward – 2 stars
It pains me to rate a Keeland and Wars novella so poorly, but Light Out Love didn’t do it for me. The characters had no chemistry and the dialogue was cheesy.
The Forbidden Christmas Gift – Samantha Young – 3 stars
The Forbidden Christmas Gift started out so good! I was going to rate it five stars, but it went from 0 to 100 too fast. I’ve read a few of Young’s earlier novels and really enjoyed them so I’m not sure why I stopped. I will definitely be picking up some others because her angst is so good.
Christmas Magic – Aurora Rose Reynolds – 3 stars
Christmas magic was cute, but super corny. I Wish we could have seen a scene from their trip.
Ho Ho Ho Holy Hotness – Lani Lynn Vale – 2 stars
Ho Ho Ho Holy Hotness was cringeworthy. It was not sexy or fun.
Alaskan Jack – TL Swan – 2 stars
Alaskan Jack was weird. Jack gives off really creepy vibes and the setting doesn’t help. Also, it felt like a The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker rip off.
Christmas Letter – Natasha Madison – 3.5 stars
This is easily the best story out of the collection. It’s funny, cute, and slightly angsty.
Overall, All I Want for Christmas is You anthology was a disappointment. Almost all the stories featured were either super cheesy and corny or just flat out unbelievable.
