IF YOU GIVE A JERK A GINGERBREAD (Reindeer Falls #2) by JANA ASTON

“It’s Christmas, Ginger, and anything is possible at Christmas. Have a little faith in the magic.”

If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread is the second book in Jana Aston’s scrumptiously funny, sweet and sexy Christmas romp series. This novella features Ginger, the sister of Holly from The Boss Who Stole Christmas. These novellas are completely standalone, however, why only have one slice of Christmas cake when you can eat the whole damn thing and guarantee a complete Christmas indulgent satisfaction?!

We’ve completely fallen in love with this town, the setting, the people and the romance of it all. Jana Aston has completely wooed us and we’ve become addicted to everything Reindeer Falls. We just cannot get enough, and whilst we’re excited for the last book, The One Night Stand Before Christmas, which is the last sister, Noel’s story, we’re kind of gutted that this’ll be the end. We could keep reading these all the way through December!

THE BOSS WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS (Reindeer Falls Series #1) by JANA ASTON

‘I want him to kiss me. Badly. Desperately. More than anything in the entire world. I need to know what kissing Nick Saint-Croix would feel like.’

The Boss who stole Christmas by Jana Aston is the most perfect sweet, funny and sexy hit of Christmas spice you could want. It should come with a warning of a Hallmark Christmas romance causing sporadic knickers meltdown. To be fair, unless you love Christmas as much as we do this book isn’t for you, but then again our advice would be for you to go get that Christmas hating syndrome checked out because….CHRISTMAS, and a sexy one at that! Gah…we LOVED it! Reindeer Falls is currently in our top search on Google because we need to go live there. This must be done!

MISADVENTURES AT CITY HALL by VICTORIA BLUE

‘This man would always be my steady wall of safety. He would be the calm in my storm.’

We do love the Misadventure series; it guarantees hot and steamy passion as well as an easy to read storyline. Victoria Blue writes an enticing story in Misadventures at City Hall which sees, Kyle Armstrong relentlessly pursue career-driven, Skye Delaney. Their relationship was nothing but intense from the get-go and we enjoyed every minute!

Love has a funny way of turning up to bat when you least expect it though, which means hard decisions have to be made by Skye. As always though, love has a habit of conquering all obstacles in the end. Whilst this book can absolutely be read as standalone, we do wish we’d read Misadventures with a Book Boyfriend first, where the characters in this story were first introduced.

GETTING PLAYED (Getting Some #2) by EMMA CHASE

5 'we fell completely in love' stars!

‘I want to be her everything. Because somewhere along the line, that’s what Lainey’s become to me. Everything.’

We’ve been chomping at the bit for this book, desperately looking forward to returning to Lakeside, New Jersey to meet the girl who puts Garrett’s (from Getting Schooled Book #1) best mate, the drum playing, nerdy hot teacher, Dean Walker on his arse! Well, what a hit! We fell in love with everything about this story! The sexiness, the banter, the swoon, the characters and of course, Dean, as brought to life by the undisputed Queen of the male POV, in her own inimitable style!

We absolutely loved this story! Lainey was a fiercely protective Mum who had the most amazing relationship with her son. We loved how Dean not only taught these super-intelligent young minds educationally but also, about life. To enjoy it, and to just 'be kids'. Great message! The sweet and tender intimacy between Lainey and Dean complimented the sizzling and lusty chemistry perfectly.

MISADVENTURES IN BLUE by SIERRA SIMONE

 “I look at you and I think you might be capable of breaking my heart.”

We think we need a cigarette after reading this book! WOW! Talk about HOT! Misadventures in Blue scratched an itch for us and then some! Hot on the heels of heavily emotional read, we wanted something hot and entertaining, and wow! Sierra Simone certainly answered the call. The heat, the chemistry, the age gap, together with the cop romance theme all worked perfectly!

Jace and Cat’s story delivered everything we could have asked for in a spicy romance. Cat, the intelligent, cool, elegant woman, and Jace, the sexy, commanding and oh so manly ‘young man’ who would bring Cat to her knees, nearly brought us to ours! If you’re after a wickedly hot story with a heart-warming emotional romance, grab this book!

YOU CAN HAVE MANHATTAN by P DANGELICO

“I don’t want your pity, Scott.”
“You don’t have it,” he said softly. “You have my admiration.’
“I’ll always find you,” he murmured.

You Can Have Manhattan by P Dangelico was a proper enemies to lovers’ romance with high angst and emotions. In this story, we as readers sure had to work at it to fall in love with the characters and their journey. Fortunately, P Dangelico writes wonderful characters that whilst they may tread the fine line between love and hate we undoubtedly had fallen in love with them by the end of their arduous love story.

THE GUY ON THE RIGHT by KATE STEWART

Loved this! Ahhh the romance!

We met at the same crossroads and that, in and of itself, makes her valuable to me as a friend more than anything else.’

We love Kate Stewart, so we were beyond excited to pick up The Guy on the Right. This is one of those times we can say that hand on heart this book is exactly what it claims to be, a true friends to lovers romance. It is without question one of our favourites in this trope. What we loved about it was that it was all about the characters, it was ‘simple’ in story yet at the same time it packed such a strong punch because in its simplicity pure magic was achieved. It never felt over-written or over-dramatic, rather, it felt easy and flawless. It felt real, specifically in its honesty of friendship and romance.

We cannot explain how much we loved Laney and Theo, both were written with such care and attention to detail, that we felt we knew them almost from the get-go. Their insecurities, their hang-ups, their hopes, and their dreams. Their needs, desires, and wants. We understood their friendships and their relationships. What we especially loved about these two characters is the shift from what is considered the ‘norm’ in romance novels. Kate Stewart gave us a male character that was portrayed in such a manner that we recognised him, not from other novels but from real life.

THE ASSIST (Smart Jocks Series #1) by REBECCA JENSHAK

"You're like the best of both worlds - hot jock meets hot nerd."
"All I just heard was you calling me hot."

If first impressions are anything to go by, Rebecca Jenshak's introduction to everyone at Valley U was a winner! We were left hungry for more and had to jump straight into The Fadeaway, the next book in Smart Jocks series the minute we finished The Assist, and we are loving that book so far!!!

If you're looking for something a little different in the sports romance college trope, then read The Assist. It was refreshing to see the stereotypical college jock scenario flipped on its head by introducing us to Wes Reynolds, the broody basketballer gifted with a photographic memory and who is anything but a 'dumb jock'. In fact, not only is Wes seriously good looking, sexy and loyal to a fault, he's intelligent to boot, though, on first impressions, he did seem rather menacing!
