Rating: ★★★★

This series of three holiday-themed romance novellas totally hit the spot. Jana Aston is a genius in crafting these stories that have just the right touch of holiday spirit wrapped up in the sweetest of love connections.

I was looking for a Christmas romance novel to get me in the holiday mood and let me tell you these novellas hit it out of the park for me.

First off let me say that Aston must have had so much fun not only naming the three sisters featured in these stories (Holly Mistletoe, Ginger Snap and Noel) but also in coming up with the hot holiday humor.

I mean the references to his North Pole and Santa’s package had me rolling in laughter.

The Boss Who Stole Christmas

Things kick off with the first book of the series: How the Boss Stole Christmas. Nick St. Croix is the perfect, stoic grump who comes off all coarse on the outside to his employee Holly Winter, when in fact he’s been harboring FEELINGS.

Once he starts to share them, you see how much he cares and the attraction is mutual.

You know it’s a great novella when your next holiday wish is to for the book to be made into a full length novel. I wasn’t ready to leave these two!

I want to see the office dynamic at work now that they are together and of course the launch of the Bear Tea Room! This was my favorite of the three for sure.

If You Give A Jerk A Gingerbread

In If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread, we move onto Ginger and Keller. These two come down with a severe case of instalove before realizing they are competing contestants on a gingerbread bake-off reality TV show.

If you just go with the instalust, they are a sickly, adorable couple who share the same passion for cooking and have a sweet happy ending.

The One Night Stand Before Christmas

Now I almost skipped right to the third book when starting this series because OMG the blurb for The One Night Stand Before Christmas was just too much – A one night stand with Santa? Hilarious!

Without spoiling it, I loved the set up between how Noel and “Santa” meet. That’s basically the entirety of the story as there really wasn’t much to their relationship at all, so it was probably my least favorite of the three because it seemed a bit lacking after the one night stand but it was still super cute.

These novellas totally hit the spot for a quick read that gets you in the holiday spirit with a bit of heat mixed in. I highly recommend taking a trip to Reindeer Falls this holiday season or any time of year. You won’t be sorry.
