Carrie Aarons pens some of my favourite holiday stories and this one, the clashing and smashing of Lark and Collin, was no exception. Everything from the concept to the storytelling, I was hooked. I loved the easy flow of the story, the characters that were introduced. And as someone who gets grumpy about the holidays, I totally related to Lark.

“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 a long time Piper Rayne fan, I was excited when they announced that they’d written a holiday romance. I’m not one for Christmas in real life, but I love reading about people falling in love during the holidays. And obviously when one of my favourite author duos decides to dip their toes into the subgenre, I’m going to be there.
These two novellas by two fantastic authors will really get you in the mood for the holiday season!
I’d seen so many positive things about this book, so obviously I was really excited to read it. I read and loved The Rebound not too long ago and when this was announced, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on the ARC. And it was so special and so unique.
Summer Hate is a novella part of a multi-author series set at the Mountain Ridge Resort in Virginia. And Melissa Iver’s story is a quick, hot, fun one. It’s got the perfect balance of romance, steam and fantastic banter that I’ve come to associate with Melissa’s writing.
After reading and loving the Betting on Love series by Loren Beeson, I was beyond excited to know that she had a new book (and series) coming. So you bet your ass I wanted to read it and devour it and just soak up all of what Loren has to offer. It’s a nice change from her romantic suspense series with a vacation romance and it’s got everything that we love about Loren’s books, which only makes it that much more special.
I read and loved A Deal with the Devil last year and fell in love with Elizabeth O’Roark’s writing. I also fell in love with Drew Wilson through the bits we saw of her and Tali together. But when she announced this book, I didn’t know I would fall so deeply in love with Drew and Josh, that I would be thinking about them for days after finishing the book.
I’m always so wary of surprise pregnancies and how they’ll be handled by the two characters when thrust into that situation, but I was pleasantly surprised by how it all worked out.
There’s a reason why Carrie Aarons is one of my favourite authors––she writes magical love stories like this one that have me all up in my feels for hours before I can fully process what I’ve just read.
