 Reese sent a letter to Santa for her aunt to get an unexpected gift. Does Kai get it?  This was a great short story for a Christmas theme. The characters drew me in and I love the dialogue between all the characters. The characters were realistic, relatable, and honest. The relationship between Kai and Noah was heartwarming. Kai’s niece Resse was adorable. The story was a bit on the romantic side and I loved it. My first read by the author but it will not be my last I give this book 4 stars.

 Merry Christmas Baby by Alexandria House




Having to work on Christmas Eve is bad. Having to work the graveyard shift on Christmas Eve is worse. Having to work the graveyard shift on Christmas Eve when your life is a mess? Well, that’s some BS. There doesn’t seem to be a Merry Christmas in store for Sunday Marks, but maybe one call can change that.


***This short story contains profanity and sexual content. If you do not like those elements in your romantic reads, this is not the story for yo




 This short story was unpredictable the way it ended. I was shocked. The character Sunday is a basket  case . She’s in love with Justin but he is in love with her? Sunday is living from paycheck to paycheck and just wants love. She’s having to work on Christmas Eve on the graveyard shift which is horrible. She is left to man the lines at the hospital.  She is bored and sleepy. Then an unexpected visitor comes by and wake her senses literally. Does Sunday have a happy Christmas after all? I give this story a 3-star rating because it ended great but too fast.
