I’m probably always really hard when I read standalone novellas. It’s not an easy thing to impress me enough to make the story stand out and they often get 3 star ratings when I do enjoy them. I’m starting with that information because I don’t want it to seem that I didn’t enjoy this book. It’s probably one of my favorite novellas that Whitney G. has released in a little while. I feel like I tend to get a little annoyed at some of the others and the repetitive storylines. This one stands out from that crowd.
Nathan is a cop and new in town. Christina is a baker and owns her own business. They’re setup to go on a blind date and then Nathan is super late and doesn’t even apologize. I was thinking this would be the standard jerk hero that I’ve come to know Whitney G for writing, but this wasn’t like that at all. Nathan is actually really sweet!
The problem with novellas is that relationships often feel rushed and there isn’t enough time to develop a connection or to really get to know the characters, in my opinion. That was the case for me here. While I found Nathan and Christina incredibly adorable and the story is very cute, it lacked substance. But it really all comes to down to what you’re in the mood for. This is a perfect short and cute pick me up kind of book, light on the holiday cheer.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
