ARC Review : Homemade for the Holidays (2019 Dreamspinner Advent Anthology)

Homemade for the HolidaysHomemade for the Holidays

I'm reading 4 stories from this 2019 Dreamspinner Advent Anthology “Homemade for the Holidays” for the blog “My Fiction Nook” and below are the reviews for the stories selected for me.


ARC Review: The Music Box by Kassandra Lea

A quickie (20 pages) : for readers looking for a tender loving moment between 2 husbands, Alvin and Milo. It’s very short, but still, the author managed to draw two sweet characters and make you feel the loving bond between them, through the attention they pay to each other during Saint-Nicholas’s day.

A sweet interlude.

ARC Review: Crochet My Heart by Carol Pedroso

For those who enjoy the Christmas spirit, nice characters, and yes, Tristan and Charlie are both adorable, and are good with a fast romantic development with a slice of hotness, it will be there.

How not to warm up to Tristan, willing to learn crochet for a charity event and Charlie eager to teach crochet at a community center, while both are attracted to each other and everybody step up to root for them and their crochet project.

For a quick read, the usual journey to an hospital as the wake-up realization for feelings was a bit too much for my tastes, but the rest was sweet enough to leave a smile on my face.

ARC Review: The Santa Project by Elinor Gray

An opposite-attract-each-other romance quite nicely done for such a short length. I enjoyed following David’s attempts to get Adam into the holidays spirit and Adam’s “Let’s-pretend-I-don’t-believe-it’s-gonna-work” attitude, all this as adorable excuses to be together and let their attraction bloom.

It felt real and spicy enough to make me swoon a tiny bit.

ARC Review: For Joy by Crystal Greene

A short-story with a huge N/A trope : not a fan of the format, nor the trope, so not surprisingly for me, I was not win over this story of these young men ending up sharing a flat, one supposedly a shy-teddy-bear and the other fierce and sunny, falling for each other under the “protective” stare of good friends.

Nothing that irked me: I just didn’t find anything sweet, nor funny, nor interesting in it. Not my cup of tea.
