“Naughty List” by Melanie A. Smith is part of the Mine This Winter anthology that features sixteen other authors writing about love during the holidays. While you don’t have to read Tough Love to enjoy this little novella, I’ll be honest…knowing everything about Mia and Nate before reading about Joanie’s sexcapades was definitely a bonus.
As part of the Hot Vegas Nights series of novellas, Melanie A. Smith’s contribution is a fast paced strangers to lovers that I had to force myself to read slowly. Once I met Kira and Sebastian, I didn’t want the story to end! You’d think that because it’s a novella, it wouldn’t be able to cover a lot of things. But it does. Melanie has a great way of telling her stories and giving you just the right amount of information that keeps you hooked and ready for more.
My god, this book. It was an absolute rollercoaster of a story and toyed with my emotions in ways that I did not expect. And that’s why I loved it so much. Every time I thought I had an inkling of what was going to happen, it was completely ripped apart and tossed aside. Melanie A. Smith has outdone herself with this story and the relationship between Max and West.
