Logan has a serious decision to make. Does he follow his head and leave the girl who only follows her heart behind, or does he leave the only life he knows to follow his heart back into her arms?

Without You is a super short read about a military man named Logan, who has always wanted to serve a full career as a soldier however the woman he loves wants him home. It’s a story about compromises and how some people are worth the change of plans. I knew going it in that it was super short, but I wouldn’t have minded reading more of this especially since I know their relationship is far from perfectly fixed. It’s a decent and quick read for the holiday season.

Noel travels the world for work, only coming home for the holiday season. With so little time spent in one place, relationships are a no-go.

Dean, a firefighter with a serious disdain for the holiday season, is sent to Mistletoe, a small town that lives and breathes Christmas. To keep his holiday exposure to a minimum, Dean avoids relationships from November through January.

Will two people who are so adamant about being single be able to ignore the feelings that are heating up their Christmas season?

When Noel’s garage catches on fire she finds herself with a new acquaintance. There were a lot of cliches in this one that made it a bit cringeworthy. Noel as a name for a christmas novella character,her “fiery-read hair ” and his being a firefighter. It has a decent storyline and it was one I think could have benefitted from more pages, because 6 chapters didn’t quite get there. Especially since it ends shortly after they finally get together, so it wasn’t a very fulfilling book. But it’s a decent short story to pick  up around this time of year.
