Review: All He Wants For Christmas by Elle Wright



Morgan Smith is more than ready to settle down with the love of his life. He fought hard for Syd, and just thinking about calling her “Mrs. Smith” . . . man, he’d happily elope right now. But his bride wants a Christmas wedding, and he’s not going to disappoint her. Nothing will stop him from meeting her at the end of that aisle-until one night changes everything.

Sydney Williams’ world could not be more perfect: an amazing man, a beautiful daughter, and soon the wedding of her dreams. But a heart-stopping message in the middle of the night quickly turns her blue skies stormy. Now Morgan’s in danger and the only Christmas miracle Syd wants is to hear his voice again . . .

A sexy Christmas novella in Elle Wright’s Edge of Scandal series. Other books in the Edge of Scandal series:
The Forbidden Man
His All Night
Her Kind of Man


“I love you. I’m not going to be satisfied if we have to wait any longer. So marry me. Today. Right now.”

Now, that’s what I call a sense of urgency! There’s nothing quite like a man not only knowing what he wants, but also seeing him express it to the woman he loves. Morgan has absolutely no shame in letting everyone know that Syd is the woman for him and that he intends to spend the rest of his life with her. Their romance (pun intended) is one that romance books are truly written about. There is a slight trace of fairy tale, but for the most part, it is a realistic story.

This book is a novella so there really isn’t a need for a long, drawn out review. All He Wants For Christmas does have one unexpected turn and it truly threw me for a loop. It caused the book to become much more emotional and it added some depth. All He Wants For Christmas is a great addition to the Edge of Scandal series. If you haven’t read the previous books, then I highly recommend that you do. Elle Wright is a gem in the romance genre and she deserves to be a household name!!

REVIEW: Perfect Pleasures by Deborah Fletcher Mello

World famous MMA champion Zachary Barrett has returned to his home in Phuket, Thailand, and his elite training camp, Revolution. Thanks to his twin brother, a renowned pro trainer in Colorado, Zachary is primed and ready for his next title bout—but his toughest match may be with the sports journalist assigned to write an exposé on him. Not only is she gorgeous, she’s after a well-guarded secret that Zach soon realizes makes her off limits in every way…


It’s true that Kenzie Monroe has an ulterior motive for pursuing Zachary. The half-Asian beauty believes he’s connected to her estranged father, a former MMA fighter who disappeared years ago. And the more Zachary avoids her, the more determined she is—and the hotter their game of cat and mouse becomes…until they both surrender. But as lust, love, and friendship combine, Zachary knows he has to answer all of Kenzie’s questions—because outside of the ring, the heart makes the rules… 

“Every woman wants to know that the man she loves will fight for her if it ever came down to it.”

Kenzie is no different than most real-life women which makes her story quite relatable. She is on a journey to find herself and along the way she “finds” Zachary. He too is on a journey and is at a professional crossroads so the last thing he needs is a woman distracting him. Mello delicately weaves a story that keeps the reader interested from the very first page. 

Mello has slowly become one of my favorite romance writers. Her stories always seem to break the mold and have a deeper element to them than the typical insta-love trope so regularly seen. Perfect Pleasures was fun, emotional, and a joy to read!!

Sister Surrogate by Lachelle Weaver Review & Giveaway

Three sisters and a baby equal family drama… Bridgette, Ivy and Savannah have always been close, and as with any sisterhood, it hasn’t been without its challenges, but they always manage to come together in times of need. When the youngest, Savannah is faced with a life altering illness which threatens her lifelong desire to have children, one of her sisters offer to give her the ultimate gift–to become her surrogate. While Savannah is overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude about motherhood, not everyone in the family shares her sentiments. The upcoming addition to their family seems to cause discord rather than joy.

Let me start by saying the synopsis for this book immediately caught my attention. A story about such a sensitive subject could either be a drama-filled saga or one of true love. Sister Surrogate was a truly a journey filled with many emotions. 

Sister Surrogate reminds us that we might have good intentions to help someone in a “bad” situation, but sometimes we need to stop and think about how all parties involved will react. Sister Surrogate also reminds us that there is a fine line between wanting to play hero and coming off as selfish. 

LaChelle Weaver has done an exemplary job of weaving a realistic tale of emotions and reactions surrounding one single decision. Sister Surrogate is a true page turner that makes the reader think about which family is more important: the one you’re born into or the one you receive once you marry. Sister Surrogate proves that Weaver has a very bright future in the literary industry!
