A nice taste of the holidays, Downside style. ~ Under the Covers
CLOSE TO YOU is a holiday themed novella set in the Downside Ghosts world. It’s not going to be your typical holiday story though. This is Downside we’re talking about. It’s far more creepier and a little sexier than you think. But that isn’t a complaint because I thoroughly enjoyed this little taste to tide us over to the next book.
Chess and Terrible (*swoon*) get caught up in a very creepy situation on Christmas Eve. Miss Havisham is a woman who loves in the extremes. She is adamant about spending time with her long dead husband for the holidays, which only seems to freak Terrible and Chess out more when she becomes combative.
At only 35 pages long, this novella seemed way too short a treat for any real character development or plot progression but nevertheless, it’s a nice taste of the holidays, Downside style.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
