Romancing the Holiday an Anthology Review

Ask Her at Christmas by Christi Barth
The Best Thing by Jaci Burton

Romancing the Holiday 
We’ll be Home For Christmas
By HelenKay Dimon:
-Four Stars-
Lila spent three days wanting nothing more to wallow in the failure of her marriage when she ends up having an affair with a man. A few months later she is now sitting in front of Austin, and though he has the same name as the man who consumed her for three glorious days and nights he is not the man she knew so intimately. That is when Spence walks in, the man she knows as Austin.

This was such a cute story I loved the characters and the family dynamic that takes place between HelenKay Dimon’s characters. She also managed to create some beautiful scenes from the resort that is falling down to the steamy love scenes, the author is able to capture each moment, each thought and feeling so vividly that this  is an amazing read.

Ask her at Christmas
By Christi Barth
-Three Stars-
Caitlin has been in love with Kyle for years but he is her best friend so she will not go into that territory. One day Kyle asks her to help him propose to his girlfriend.
Ok so this story is a miss for me. First off Kyle doesn’t love his girlfriend he just wants to marry her to make his dad happy. Then Caitlin just sits back and lets it happen. But it is cute and like all great fluffy romances has a happy ending. I did enjoy the scenes that Christi created; she truly brings Christmas to life. 

The Best Thing
By Jaci Burton
-Four Stars-
Brody is the town playboy at last year’s Christmas party Brody acted on his feelings and finally kissed Tori. Tori didn’t react the way he thought she would ever since she had given him the cold shoulder to cover up her feelings; she has had a crush on him for years but will never make a move on them because she knows he will just leave her with a broken heart.

The playboy and the good girl fall in love? I loved it this is a great romance novella Brody and Tori and two characters that are lovable and the romance between them is beautiful as each one has their own insecurities that they must overcome in order to be in a relationship. Not only does Jaci Burton create two amazing characters but she also manages to create an entire family that is fun to read about, and what is a Christmas story without family?
