I just realized this week that I never wrote reviews after reading most of my December reads and in all honesty I forgot what some of these were about.
Shiver by Allie Reynolds – 4 Stars I really enjoyed this isolated closed circle mystery that follows a group of snowboarders 10 years after the disappearance of one of their group. They are brought together supposedly to kind of reminisce on the 10 year anniversary of their friend disappearing but it turns out that whoever brought them there has other plans in mind. The story moves pretty fast and I enjoyed seeing how everything unfolded.
A Very Merry Bromance – 3 Stars This is book 5 in the bromance series and after reading book 3 I had pretty much decided to not read this anymore but a group of friends on instagram was doing a buddy read so I joined in. This story follows a professional country singer as he tries to deal with his career maybe being over and a mutual friend of the group who is a lawyer. We follow the two as they try to decide if a relationship can work between them. This one was just ok, it was better than the last 2 I read in the series but not a new favorite.
Drama King by Penny Reid – 5 Stars As you probably know by now if you have been around for awhile that I love Penny Reid and will pretty much read whatever she writes. Drama King follows celebrity Cyrus Malcom as gets stuck in a snow storm with his very good looking body guard Beth Ryan. As with anything Penny writes, I immediately fell in love with both characters and became invested in their story. This one has forbidden romance because of work place dynamics and mistaken identity and of course all the banter and pining that Penny writes so well. Thank you SocialButterfly PR for my #gifted copy for review!
Faking Christmas by Cindy Steel – 3 Stars This is one that I pretty much forgot about. I know it takes place over the week of Christmas and follows Olive as she and her family stay at Christmas resort in Vermont. After learning that her mom invited her ex and his family to join them Olive makes up a fake relationship and the only name she comes up with his her work enemy, Miles. Turns out in true rom-com fashion that Miles’s family owns said resort and the two start a fake relationship. Overall this one was ok, it didn’t wow me but I enjoyed it while reading it.
