It might be starting to get cold outside, but this set of sexy novellas will heat things right up! I was super psyched to see some of my favorite romance authors contributing to this anthology! I adore Jennifer Probst and Emma Chase, and am familiar with their works, so it was great to read their stories and see some of my favorite characters again! Kate Meader, Melody Anne, and Kristen Proby also share their own novellas, which were fun and heartwarming to read as well.
At first I thought Jennifer Probst's novella would be about Kate and Kennedy (from the Searching For series) so we could see how their relationships were faring. Instead, we are introduced to two new characters- Dylan and Riley, who have both enlisted Kinnections help to find them a potential match. Their computer program shows them as a perfect match for one another and set them up on a blind date, but unbeknownst to them, they are already familiar with one another. I liked Riley and Dylan together and I enjoy stories where the main characters knew each other previously and are now reigniting the flame between them. Probst writes some delicious, sexy scenes and I really like that even though this is a novella, things felt natural with them together.
Once again we are back in the infamous Drew Evans' head for Emma Chase's novella. I love seeing Drew and Kate together, and we got some great moments with little James too. This story is both sexy and sweet at the same time. Drew and Kate have a great sex life, despite having a five year old son. They are so in love with one another it just warms your heart! I really like the Christmas Carol take, because it really makes Drew really stop and appreciate what he has in his life and how he wouldn't give it up for the world.
Kristen Proby and Melody Anne's stories were cute reads that both made me chuckle, even though they were a bit too insta-love for my tastes. Kristen Proby introduces us to a sexy billionaire and a klutzy woman who is staying at his resort in order to learn how to ski... and maybe have a sexy affair while she's at it! Melody Anne gives us a sexy, kind hearted man by the name of Hawk and a sweet schoolteacher who is new to town. Add in a few meddling old ladies who like to play matchmaker and you've got yourself the makings of a small town romance!
I also enjoyed Kate Meader's story because I just love second chance romances. Coming back to Chicago and being reunited with the boy that shattered her heart so many years ago, Darcy is determined not to make the same mistakes twice. However, Beck Rivera isn't someone who she can easily dismiss. Their sexual tension oozes off the pages and I love that these two have so much chemistry even after being separated for so long.
Overall, this was definitely a cute anthology and I'm so ready for the winter season to begin!
