Rthright trustworthy man can no longer ignore his growing attraction to his fiercely intelligent client Now Jenny must choose between the safe anonymous “C” or the flesh and blood Evan whose heated kisses can melt snow faster than it can fall AFTER MIDNIGHT by Serena Bell The clock is ticking down to midnight on New Year’s Eve and all Nora Hart and Miles Shephard can think about is kissing each other even though they met just minutes before Then as fast as Miles enters Nora’s life he’s gone and she never even gets the name of the man she thinks might just be “the one” One year later Nora and Miles are reunited The chemistry between them is just as strong as they remember But Miles broke her heart once before and this time around Nora’s not sure whether she can give love a second chance. These were three great short stories with a Christmas theme Each had its own uniue relationship theme but they were all three deeper in depth than most novellas I have read as well as some novels I liked the fact that they weren't fluff but each one dealt with a specific issue in a relationship Personally I thought the middle story by Mary Ann Rivers was the most interesting and the least predictable of the three She dealt with an unusual romance topic and for that the entire story intrigued me It was very loosely a holiday theme but thinking of what the holidays are supposed to be about it made this book seem importantI rally did enjoy each and every story on its own and glad to see some novellas with some depth to them None of these stories seemed like a cookie cutter romance and for that I am very gratefulThank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the opportunity to read and give an honest review

Originally reviewed here AngievilleLast year I read my very first ever Christmas novellas and shocked myself at how much I enjoyed them I mean I read a few duds sure but I read some real gems as well And so a couple of weeks ago I found myself eagerly looking forward to rereading a couple of my favorites this holiday season as well as hopefully discovering a few new ones Happily the very first new one I read proved to be a home run I kind of knew it would be given how much I loved Mary Ann Rivers' debut novella The Story Guy earlier this year When I heard her next book was a Christmas novella in the HEATING UP THE HOLIDAYS anthology I snatched it up the day it released and snuggled up with my Nook for a little pre holiday reading I hadn't read any works by the other two authors in the collection I actually still haven't read their contributions though I plan on it at some point but I can tell you the ebook bundle is utterly worth it for Rivers' story aloneJenny Wright was diagnosed right at the most inopportune of times right after she uprooted her life entirely moved halfway across the country and started a new job in a new place And even after being diagnosed with a rare degenerative eye disease she chose to stay in her new life Even though her mother begged her to come back home where she could look after her Even though her colleagues walked a little cautiously around her And even as the days grew shorter and the darkness crept in The one bright point in those days is the time after she gets home from work and settles in on the couch with her computer That's when she gets to chat with C Though they've never actually met he used to live in the house she currently rents And when she forwarded a piece of mail on to him they struck up an online relationship C is a macro photographer Most days the two of them talk about his pictures her thoughts anything they like Though their interactions grow intimate Jenny knows she can't handle She has enough on her plate navigating her work her occupational therapy and just getting through each day intact When her worlds collide she is wholly unprepared for the falloutI think my best bet is to keep still and let the snow fall let the days get long again the light return its hours to me a few chances a day to figure out what it is I can comfortably keep in front of me and seeFor me there isn't some miracle cure this is my life or my disease will progress and my life will change focus again and I'll have another new lifeI need C to stay right where he is now because for now I don't know enough to move from where I amMy hypothesis is that the light will come back both outside and inside meI'm afraid and angry but the light is a theory I want to proveUntil then I just have to keep the experiment going with as many controls as possibleOne bus back and forthOne storeOne man his words under glassYes I just knew Ms Rivers would bring her words And how beautifully they were voiced through Jenny I really loved her you guys My throat constricted on her behalf from moment to moment And though I cannot fathom the terror she lived with each day I know enough of f
