SUMMARY
Jack Eversea and Evan Weston, two of Hollywood’s hottest young actors had their hearts stolen by regular down to earth girls, and we lived and laughed and loved their stories in the Eversea Series and in the Desire Resort Series. But what happened when the books were over? How did each couple choose to spend their first Christmas? Was it sexy, emotional, stressful or heartwarming? Perhaps it was everything and more…

MY STAR, MY LOVE (An Eversea Series Novella) by Natasha Boyd
Movie star, Jack Eversea, has decided to brave his history with England and take the love of his life, Keri Ann Butler, home to meet his mother for Christmas. He’s been back in California and Keri Ann’s been busy with art school, and they are desperate to spend three weeks together over the Holidays. But Jolly Old England does weird things to Jack. And despite his super sweet “twelve days of Christmas” gift giving, Keri Ann can’t quite work out of he’s about to propose or regrets bringing her home. Is he still questioning whether she can handle a few paparazzi, or is he doubting Keri Ann’s commitment to their future? The magnetic couple is back in a fun, sometimes poignant, and super sexy story about acceptance, love and how to make love quietly in a creaky old house with one’s mother down the hall.

MANY TIMES, MANY WAYS (A Desire Resort Series Novella) by Kate Roth
Vacation is over. Danielle was escaping her monotonous life at a sexy beach resort when she first fell under the spell of Hollywood hunk, Evan Weston, but now they’re trying to make their relationship work in the real world. While they’re both hopeful for what lies ahead, the only question is whether or not their desires for the future are one and the same. Things have always moved quickly between Evan and Danielle, but Danielle can’t stave off the lingering anxiety she has once she finds out about Evan’s big plans—and even bigger Christmas gift. Can she continue to let go of the worry that plagues her so the man of her dreams can give her the life she never imagined she’d have?

MY REVIEW

MY STAR, MY LOVE. I knew I missed Jack and Keri Ann, I just didn't know how much until I started reading this novella. After "Forever, Jack", Keri Ann and her not-really-great relationship with the 'celebrity lifestyle' left me terribly curious to see how she would approach the world that so freaked her out, but that now was part of her everyday life. Well, I must say, I'm proud of her. She's doing quite good and the love she and Jack share keeps warming your heart like old times, if not even more! Plus, who would resist to twelve days of amazing Christmas gifts? And, more importantly, how could any of us possibly resist to Jack-freaking-Eversea?

MANY TIMES, MANY WAYS. I admit at first I was a bit afraid about this novella, the author was new to me and we all know that jumping in a series without having read the first instalments sometimes can be a real challenge...And yet, this wasn't the case at all. Danielle and Evan's Christmas was simply lovely to read about. As a matter of fact, I liked it so much that I want to go back and read how it all started. No matter if I now know what it's going to be for those two in the end, they sound like a sparkling match and I want to hear their story from the very beginning. Yes, it's also an excuse to spend more time with Evan, sue me!

I had a pleasurable time with both Jack and Evan novellas, I loved that (in a certain way) they were linked, and not only they put a smile on my face but they definitely lit up an even greater desire in me to start celebrating this holiday...

RATING: 4/5
