I really wanted to like this smart little collections which takes us through Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's. I loved Mary Ann River's debut The Story guy, always have enjoyed Lisa Renee Jones books, and wanted to try Serena Bell. But alas, none of the novella's in the collection worked for me.
PLAY WITH ME by Lisa Renee Jones
I was bipping along with this piece of CEO froth when the heroine did something so dumb (believing a stranger about something) I couldn't pick up the book for a while and when I did the glow was gone. Other readers encouraged me to keep reading so I did but the glow was gone. Stupidity does that to me.
SNOWFALL by Mary Ann Rivers
I think The Story Guy is one of the best romances to come out this year. Go buy it. However, this novella although it had the compelling characterization and conflicts did not work for me because I found the point of view and density of the writing oppressive this time around. The myopic focus makes sense literarily but as a romance I need more air.
AFTER MIDNIGHT by Serena Bell
To be fair, I wasn't in the best place to read this one but it never engaged me. It was plain.
I was given this book for my honest review so there you have it.
