Christmas Reads

I have a lot of holiday romances and some of them are on sale this month, so here’s a little festive shopping list for you. 🙂

Just Home for the Holidays, a Christmas romance novella and #7 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just Home for the Holidays (Flatiron Five Fitness #7) is discounted to 99¢ this week. (Act fast!) Hunter and Chloe’s romance is a fake date, freinds to lovers, workplace romance that I just love to bits. What can Chloe do with a guy who hates Christmas, except try to change his mind? All this and Christmas in Manhattan, which is pure magic. (My first trip to NYC was during the week between Christmas and New Year’s and I’ve loved that city ever since.) Come fall for Hunter and New York in this romance.

All or Nothing, book #4 of the Coxwell series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

All or Nothing is #4 in the Coxwells series but those books are closer to being standalones. It’s also a fake date that leads to forever, and a romantic comedy with all the feels. It starts just before Thanksgiving, when Jen invites Zach to her family dinner, mostly because she’s sure she could never fall for a guy like him. (We know where that goes, don’t we?) The best part of this IMO is that Jen compels Zach to reconsider his choices and make some different ones. I love that kind of romance.

Just One Christmas Night, book four of the Flatiron Five Tattoo series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just One Christmas Night (Flatiron Five Tattoo #4) features a fresh start for Chynna when she attends a Christmas wedding in Maine. She’s had a great love in her life already and isn’t expecting another – but then she meets Trevor. She thinks it’s just a one-nighter but Trevor knows that Chynna is the woman he’s been waiting for. This is a later-in-life romance, an emotional and festive story of healing, and the romance both of these characters deserve.

Just One Second Chance, book six of the Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Just One Second Chance is Flatiron Five Fitness #6 and Theo’s second-chance-at-love romance. Lyssa returns to NYC and reappears in Theo’s life when he’s doing promotional pop-ups for Flatiron Five Fitness at locations around the city. She’s got secrets to share and confessions to make, and just like she did once before, she shakes his world completely. I love how these two work through the wounds of the past to build a new future together.

A Berry Merry Christmas, a holiday romance novella by Deborah Cooke

A Berry Merry Christmas is the first holiday story I ever wrote (!!). It’s a romantic comedy featuring an elf on assignment from Mr. C. to make one girl’s Christmas wish come true – and the by-the-book businessman who is that little girl’s uncle and doesn’t believe in magic at all. It’s a sweet, fun story that some readers have said should be a Hallmark movie. I’ve made it 99cents for the month of December but at KOBO, it will be discounted from December 8 to 24 as part of a Festive Reads promotion.

If you shop at KOBO, they’re having a BOGO sale this month on holiday romances and some of the other titles are included in that.

Just Home for the Holidays, a Christmas romance novella and #7 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Chloe has plans…

Running the finances at Flatiron Five Fitness West is steadily making her goal of financial independence come true. Returning to New York for Christmas should be routine, but her mom starts matchmaking—and Chloe needs a plus-one fast. When Hunter volunteers, Chloe decides he’s the perfect choice—she’ll never get emotionally involved with a guy who doesn’t worry about tomorrow. It doesn’t hurt that he’s hot, or that he kisses like he invented it—but when Chloe discovers that Hunter hates Christmas, she needs to know why. How much will she surrender to unlock his secrets? And how will she keep herself from falling in love once she does?



Hunter lives in the moment…

He’s learned the hard way that tomorrow might never come and is determined to make every day count. The problem is Christmas—he needs a major distraction to keep his memories at bay. A fake date to a fancy charity event with his gorgeous co-worker, Chloe, is definitely out of the ordinary for him, but Hunter loves a challenge. What could be a better one than breaking every one of Chloe’s rules? It’s all fun until Chloe decides to help Hunter put the past behind him—when she demands more than a fling, can Hunter learn to believe in the future again?


Five stars!
This is the most absolutely perfect story. I loved everything about this story, I couldn’t put it down. It was like a movie was playing in my head. It wasn’t rushed, it wasn’t too Hallmark-y, it was just…..perfect.

Flatiron Fitness is always fun to return to and this time around we have a guy who lives in the moment, has deep scars, and doesn’t want any sort of commitment, oh, and hates Christmas. We also have Chloe who likes and lives by her plans, doesn’t like surprises, and needs a fake date ASAP while in town for the Holidays so her mom doesn’t try to set her up with her ex. Enter Hunter who, until now, has never noticed her because she hid behind her conservative clothes and glasses, but she has gone through a change and he likes that change. I enjoyed their story and how he got more than he expected or wanted because Chloe decides that he is worth more than a one-night stand. I enjoyed how it evolved and the ending was sweet and romantic. Loved it.
