White Lie Christmas by Christine Bell:

The holidays are here, and Leah Latrelle has made a mess of them. When her out-of-town parents’ concern over her non-existent love life threatens to interfere with her father’s health, she invents a boyfriend who quickly turns into a fiancé. Her family is thrilled, and they change their Christmas plans last minute to meet their future son-in-law. Now Leah has no choice but to come up with the goods. She needs a man, fast. When her friend and business partner, Mick, offers himself up as a sacrifice, she’s all over it. He’s handsome, dependable and available for the job. What could go wrong?



Tis the season, and Mick Kilpatrick can’t say no to a damsel in distress. Especially when that damsel is his luscious business partner who has been the object of his reluctant desire for the past year. He hasn’t pursued anything because being a dad is still priority number one. A sexy woman like Leah will only distract him from what’s really important and he can’t have that. He’ll pretend to be her fiancé, but when it’s over, everything will go back to normal. Sure, he’s fantasized about her once or...a million times but that doesn’t mean he’s in love with her. Does it?

She doesn't like root beer, clowns or bugs (except ladybugs, on account of their cute outfits), but lurrves chocolate, going to the movies and playing tennis. She enjoys writing fun, adventure-filled romance novels, but hopes to one day publish something her dad can read without wanting to dig his eyes out with a rusty spoon. Christine also writes erotic romance under the pen name Chloe Cole.


Riley Murphy writes sexy, humorous and emotional romance, happy ending guaranteed. An optimist, she believes life is awesome, people are complicated, but in a good way, and we should never stop learning. Riley currently resides in Florida with her gorgeous husband. She has two wonderful kids and one very bossy English Bull terrier. When Riley's not working she enjoys reading, oil painting and getting to the Sunday crossword puzzle before anyone else does, so she can fill-in all the easy answers first. If Riley wasn't a writer she'd be an international spy with top-level security so she could have a peek at Area 51 and decide for herself if those green guys are for real. Riley loves her characters and she hopes you do too.

    I enjoyed this novella--the fake fiance storyline always makes for a lot of fun opportunities, and it was definitely used well here. It's also a friends-to-lovers story, which definitely adds to the enjoyment. The Christmas setting was like hitting the holiday novella trifecta :)




    I enjoyed the two main characters, Mick and Leah, a whole lot--but because of this, I felt their story deserved to be longer! Since he's a devoted single dad, I would have really liked to have seen Mick's son play a bigger role. The easy relationship between him and Leah was alluded to a few times, and seeing it play out alongside the rest of the story could have been really satisfying.




    Still, this was a nice way to fill a few spare moments in the holiday season; a quick and entertaining read from authors I'll be looking for more from in the future.




    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Some romances are Cinderella stories. Others are Beauty & t

    Some romances are Cinderella stories. Others are Beauty & the Beast. WHITE LIE CHRISTMAS is a Pinocchio tale of duplicity that results in hilarity and a heart-warming scenario where two people somehow manage to fall in love in spite of their best efforts to the contrary. My favorite part of the story was the witty, wicked humor present throughout.

    This contemporary novella is set in scenic Chicago, and features a zippy plot and snappy dialogue. I believe I detected variations in "voice" as the story progressed, but that's easily attributable to the fact that there are two authors instead of just one. So it's not necessarily a bad thing and it made the hero's POV distinctive from the heroine's, which can sometimes be an issue in romance. I found the secondary characters to be well developed and used in the right proportion so they advanced the romance.

    Leah Latrelle and Mick Kilpatrick are partners in a real estate agency. As the story begins, Leah's lies to her parents (about having a fiancée) are coming back to bite her on the butt when her family decides to unexpectedly drop in for a visit over the Christmas holiday. Mick volunteers to help her out by pretending to be her significant other. Throw in a suspicious sister, two oblivious parents, a cute little boy and a cougar client, and you have a recipe for laughter and love.

    As a hero, Mick is instantly likeable—a devoted single father, sweet, considerate and handsome. There's so much about him to love. He is complex and easy to emphasize with and I was rooting for him right from the start. His long-term attraction to Leah is convincing, as are his reasons for having delayed becoming involved with her. His love scenes with Leah are sensual and wonderfully descriptive. I appreciated the fact that they weren't rushed and really hit the right emotional notes.

    The heroine is a little crazy. I felt confused for the first half of the story about Leah's motivation and her behavior frustrated me. Don't get me wrong, I actually prefer a heroine capable of executing deception over one of those vanilla "I cannot tell a lie" types. But unlike the title, Leah's lies aren't white. They are big. BIG. And snowball with some extremely funny results. But funniness aside, it's my nonprofessional opinion that the heroine needs therapy.

    WHITE LIE CHRISTMAS is an excellent choice for a reader who loves to laugh, Christmas stories, and "fake fiancée" romances. Happy reading!

    Swoony and adorable! Swooniest little read of 2013¿that¿s my op

    Swoony and adorable!

    Swooniest little read of 2013…that’s my opinion on this piece. Mick is ridiculously charming and sexy. Between his bit of bad boy, his daddy moments and the way he sweeps Leah off her feet multiple times, he kept me completely engaged in the plot of White Lie Christmas. And Leah? She’s funny and emotional. Her family coming to visit has pushed her to the limit but it’s Mick’s sudden not-so-fake interest in her that really pushes her over the edge.

    I loved every little thing about this story. From drunken rambles to sweet little boy smiles, glow in the dark condoms to chaste and not-so-chaste kisses. This is one story I will read again and again when I need a fun, sweet, swoony read. Perfection!

    I am a huge fan of Christine Bell and this story didn't disappoint. This is a perfect story to get you in the mood for Christmas. I loved the heroine, Leah Latrelle as she was a wonderful character that I think women can really sympathize with.  And the hero, Mick Kilpatrick is smoking hot, not only with his description, quick wit and conflicted heart, but also because he is such a dedicated father. Leah's quirky family were also an asset and interesting to read. After her sister becomes engaged, Leah is need of a man to show her parents that she doesn't need them to take care of her. Her father needs to be in a warmer climate because of a health issue, but he and his Leah's mother worry about Leah being alone and consider staying in the cool climate. Leah enlists the help of her real estate partner Mick to pose at her fiancé. The family meetings are hilarious and the warming of the feelings between Leah and Mick are awesome. The love scenes are wonderfully and skillfully written (very hot). And the ending is so sweet that I nearly cried. This is a wonderful and heart warming book that I would recommend. I gave it five stars.

    White Lie Christmas by Christine Bell and Riley Murphy is a sexy

    White Lie Christmas by Christine Bell and Riley Murphy is a sexy novella that won't disappoint. It is about business partners Leah Latrelle and Mick Kilpatrick. Leah and Mick are real estate agents that recently joined forces to form their own agency after achieving success elsewhere. There has always been a spark between them that they never pursued.

    It is the holiday season and Leah's parents are returning to Chicago to celebrate with her as well as check-out her new fiance, which she fabricated for the sake of her father's health. Due to Leah's desperation, Mick volunteers to be her fake fiance while her parent's are in town. Spending so much time together intensifies their feelings and they end up becoming more.

    I liked this novella. It has some very funny laugh out loud moments in addition to a very hot couple. The amicable relationship between Mick and his ex-wife is both refreshing as well as harmonious. If you are in the mood for a hot romance, give this book a try.
