That Mistletoe Moment

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


As the holidays descend, three single women take a thoroughly modern approach to good
old-fashioned romance, and wonder if the best—and most complicated—gift of all is just a click, tap, or swipe away…
Like a Christmas miracle, the Build a Boyfriend App lets you simply input the stats of your dream man, and witty texts, passionate emails, and hot Instagram pics start flooding in. No more awkward questions or pitying looks as you face the holidays alone!
But even the best technology has its glitches. When real-life emotions come into play, this trio of
twenty-somethings find themselves in a tangle of crossed signals, flying wrapping paper, disastrous Christmas parties…and surprising kisses.
Yet despite the confusion of their mistletoe misadventures, when the New Year dawns, these very satisfied women just may find themselves waking up with true love beside them.
“Just the thing to put you in a holiday mood. . . . A fun, fast read with some very sexy scenes.”

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 05, 2016 – In this anthology of contemporary Christmas-oriented novellas, three women create fake boyfriends via the Build-a-Boyfriend App, with results ranging from charming to discomfiting. In Johnson's charismatic "A Boyfriend by Christmas," a chance meeting on Thanksgiving and a text sent to the wrong contact lead to alluring romantic possibilities. Angell's pleasant "All I Want for Christmas Is..." features a woman vying to be a CEO's personal shopper. She invents a boyfriend to stay competitive, but her tantalizing potential boss challenges her resolve. Finally, in Charles's frustrating "Her Favorite Present," Gabe, the cocreator of Build-a-Boyfriend, believes anyone using the app is "a pathetic waste of space" until he makes a bet involving covertly getting to know one of their clients. The stories, especially "All I Want," feel rushed sometimes, but the brevity keeps characters from having to dwell in awkward situations. "A Boyfriend by Christmas" is invitingly sweet; by contrast, "Her Favorite Present" is brought down by Gabe's deceit and snide disdain. Still, this collection will appeal to romance fans who enjoy stories of mix-ups and confident or even arrogant men.

Grab a copy of this one and relax during the holiday season with 3 incredible stories. I highly recommend it.

this collection will fit nicely in for those pre-holiday, get in the mood reads.

These three stories are light, cute and clever, perfect for that bite of holiday cheer when you need something easy to escape with. An interesting twist on both the newer ideas of internet dating and the incorporation of the ability to ‘build’ the perfect mate for yourself, the modern take is enjoyable for all.

Nicole, Riley and Rachel all want that special connection for the holidays, but everyone has a very different idea of just what it is that will make their dreams come true. Each woman has her own idea of what a boyfriend should be for them, and like many of us, the list could be endless. With several options and opportunities for choices – each learns to appreciate their newly revealed creations.

With a story that brings the app creator’s life to light, complete with his own opinions of the women who have made him a success by using the app, there is a bit of something for everyone.

Reasonably solid if quick reading and developing romances are the highlight here. A touch of the holidays runs through the stories, while I wasn’t hearing sleigh bells, I did see that this collection will fit nicely in for those pre-holiday, get in the mood reads.

I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
