REVIEW: Oh my! Holiday Ever After by Jill Shalvis was an anthology of three Christmas novellas. You can read one per evening or do what I did and read them in a day and a half. I’m not a speed reader and started it one afternoon and finished it the next day.
I’m not a short story person but, I enjoyed these because they are a little longer and more involved than a short story. I loved every one of them. They were all different and fun. If you have a busy holiday season coming up, this anthology should fit right into your schedule.
I would definitely recommend this book. If you don’t like any sex at all in your books, this one will not be for you. There are some scenes. I wouldn’t call them vulgar but, they are there. Just a word of caution for some of my peeps.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from #AvonandHarperVoyager and #Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
SYNOPSIS: Three fan-favorite Jill Shalvis novellas are together for the first time in this holiday anthology!
One Snowy Night
It’s Christmas Eve and Rory Andrews is desperate to get home to her family. Problem is, her only ride to Lake Tahoe comes in the form of the annoyingly handsome Max Stranton, her long-time crush, and his big, goofy, lovable dog. A long road trip in a massive blizzard might be just what they need to face their past…and one steamy, snowy night is all it takes to bring Max and Rory together at last.
When Sean O’Riley shows up for his older brother’s bachelor weekend, the last person he expects to see is Lotti Hartford, the woman he lost his virginity to a decade ago. As the weekend continues, Sean realizes he wants to leave his hook-up life behind, but can he convince Lotti to open her heart to him again?
Mistletoe in Paradise
Years after their secret fling ended, Hannah isn’t eager to see James during their families’ annual joint holiday-themed yacht adventure. But when they’re the only people who show up, James and Hannah are stuck together on the high seas for days. As the former lovers try to make the best of the Christmas snafu, they soon realize the best things in life can’t be planned, and sometimes love is sweeter the second time around.
