This is an extremely short story that can be read as a standalone sweet holiday story.  Or, it can be looked at as fleshing out some of the peripheral characters of this series.  Either way, it’s short.  *Heads up, the Kindle and other e-book editions are listed as 160 pages.  But many of those pages are made up of excerpts of other books by this author.  It’s truly only 92 pages.

I often wondered what the deal was between Rory and Max while I was reading The Trouble With Mistletoe.  Well, lucky me Jill Shalvis decided to give them their own short story.  It was sweet and sexy but, unfortunately, not all I wanted it to be.  There were other issues that Rory dealt with very recently that were not addressed and I thought they should have been.  Now, it really doesn’t take away from the story to have them not mentioned.  But it could have added so much more to the story if it had been addressed.  And, while my curiosity in regards to these two as a couple was satisfied, I’m even more curious about Max’s past.

There are many redeeming qualities about this story, so please don’t take this review as a pan.  I actually really loved the story for what it is…a short holiday tale of misunderstandings, growing up, and love.  I hope to continue to catch glimpses of these two as this series progresses, and I’m sure I will since they all work and live in the same complex.
