WRECK THE HALLS: BY: JESSICA PAYSEUR
Business has been good at Paul’s Café in Madison, Wisconsin—until a few months before Christmas. When Nick opens Nick’s Restaurant next door, Paul watches his customers leave for cheaper food and an owner who smiles more. With his livelihood at stake, Paul lashes out, trying to drive away Nick’s customers, but Nick won’t go easy, and escalating sabotage threatens to ruin the holidays for both of them.
Paul thinks all he wants for Christmas is to see Nick’s Restaurant go under, but the more he tries to drive Nick away, the less he’s sure he wants him to go. Nick is everything Paul secretly craves, but by the time he realizes Nick is all he really wants for the holidays, he might have ruined any chance for them to get together. And there might not be a present in the world that can fix that.
Outside, Paul turned to apologize to Nick, only to find him shutting the door in his face
This short Christmas book has been fun to read. Paul owns a cafe and lives above it, Nick opens a restaurant beside Paul’s and moved into the apartment above it. Two places to eat beside each other does not bode well between the two owners.
Their antics of trying to one up each other, the anger of losing customers, the workers caught between the fighting and then there is the electricity snapping between Paul and Nick. Will one of them go too far? Can they forgive and finally slide between the sheets?
I give this book 4.5 stars or 4.5 Fried cheese curd (you must read it to find out why!)
GRAB THIS BOOK FRIENDS, NOW IS AMY'S REVIEW OF PINING FOR PERFECT BY KI BRIGHTLY!
Stokely leads a solitary life, trying to do all the right things. He has a solid, respectable job, a properly decorated, respectable apartment, and goes to work every single day, no matter what. But it’s Christmas, and he hates Christmas, especially since his one guilty pleasure, listening to Asher Banks on the radio, is ruined with upbeat, holiday garbage.
Asher is the polar opposite—he loves Christmas to a fault and schedules himself into the ground with fundraisers to help the local community. When Asher and Stokely meet during one of the holiday spectacles Asher has thrown together, sparks fly, but neither one of them has ever had a real Christmas—or a real home. Will they be able to make one with each other?
This short holiday story was a nice little read! Asher is a DJ and goes over and beyond trying to pass the Christmas cheer and to help others, especially those kids who live in foster care. He’s been there before and knows how that feels.
Stokely loves listening to Asher on the radio except when the Christmas Caroles are played all the time. Stokely grew up with foster families and the experience was not a good one. Christmas is nothing to celebrate
Each will have to put their insecurities behind them and move forward to be together. Can Stokely love Christmas as much as Asher, maybe with the right person he can
I give this book 4 stars or 4 shaving mirrors!!
SOUNDS GREAT RIGHT? GRAB IT ABOVE! LET'S CHECK OUT THE FINAL BOOK IN OUR 3 BOOK REVIEW POST RIGHT NOW!
JESSICA KENNEDY REVIEWS: HOMEMADE FROM THE HEART BY BRU BAKER!
Craft store owner Grant has always been a sucker for a pretty face, and that goes double for a pretty face with an adorable sidekick. When seven-year-old Aubrey has her heart set on taking Grant’s already-full holiday craft series, he caves and gives up his one day off a week so she (and her hot guardian, Josh) can take private lessons. Their flirting ramps up week after week, and even though Josh isn’t with Aubrey’s mother, Grant can’t be sure the man isn’t straight. Maybe he’s just being friendly. And Josh, who most definitely is not straight, is afraid of being the creepy guy hitting on the teacher.
Frustrated by their stubbornness and cluelessness, Aubrey takes matters into her own hands. She decides the best gift to give Josh is something homemade and from the heart—a boyfriend they’ll both love.
Grant is overloaded with holiday projects at his store Make and Take, so much so he's had to turn away customers. That is until the gorgeous Josh walks in with sweet Audrey wanting to take the already full holiday craft classes. Grant may be tired, overbooked and overworked, but that doesn't stop him from offering private lessons to the sweet kid. Josh and Grant flirt more and more, but Grant is sure that's all it will be with the supposedly straight Josh.... until a holiday miracle happens in the form of a sweet and determined Audrey. This book had me LOL'ING more than once and I couldn't have adored it more! This book was a great quirky, happy holiday pick me up. You must read this, I practically demand it!
the 5 hand knit scarf rating for this book!
