Playful, funny, and easy to devour in one sitting, this holiday novella is kinda exactly what I expected it to be. It’s got the banter and dialogue that Ney is known for, and the same kind of feel as this writing duo’s other holiday novella, Kissmas Eve. This isn’t a complete love story, but it is a fun, low angst holiday read. We get the sparks of attraction, the banter, and then the hint of something more between these two. I loved the humor and the tone, so it’s just the right kind of low angst romance for the holiday season.
The story follows Felicity, an accountant who is excited to finally meet the guy she’s been talking to online. Steve has definitely got Felicity interested, even if it is possible that he’s catfishing her – she’s never seen his face, after all. But when Felicity spends a few hours at the office on the holiday, she runs into another guy who catches her interest. Harry is the maintenance guy (or so she thinks), and they strike up an easy conversation. Now Felicity finds herself torn between two guys, and she’s not sure what to do.
It’s quick, easy, and a lot of fun. This is no deep romance; it’s just a cute, quirky holiday story – but these authors do that well. I loved Steve/Harry, and appreciated that he seemed like a genuine, down to earth guy. There’s essentially zero angst, just some comedic moments and a touch of romance. Would I have preferred this as a full-length book? Absolutely. But I liked it quite a bit.
