#UnpopularOpinion. Decided to finally listen to this after hearing so much love for this author. Sadly, I wasn‘t engrossed, found it repetitive and too long. The romance not believable, and not necessary. Just ok. 3⭐️ max.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I felt the same way. I did not buy into the romance at all. 2w

Geekerella is a cute story. I loved all the Cinderella aspects and all the fandom aspects. I recommend Geekerella to fans of Cinderella retellings who don't mind a hint of geekiness and young adult protagonists.

I have listened to the Audible audiobook of Christmas by Accident.

Overall, the narrator did a great job telling the story. However, the story itself failed to entertain me. I didn't feel connected to the main characters, and their story seemed to be rushed to a happy conclusion. It had some lovely moments, but overall it was just an okay Christmas story for me.

Listened to the audiobook on #audible. Enjoyed the story overall, but it lacked something for me. I found the scenes with the dog's to be limited.

⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

Over all I recommend this book for some light hearted romantic fantasy, especially the well produced audio. I love some angst, so the ending has me ramped up for starting the next book in the series.

Pros:
-Great audible narration
-Bad ass assassin protagonist with a heart of gold
-A male lead with love on his sleeve

Cons
-motivations feel cartoony at times (like over the top villainy or goodness)

A modern romantic Scrooge story.
I love Christmas stories, and this one brings a modern spin to a classic story. I didn't really like the main character, I didn't think she learned or grew enough in the few days the story was told. But I think the visits from past boyfriends are an worthwhile and interesting part of the story. The ending is of course a happy one, like any good Christmas story.

The Christmas Pact | Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward

It is a fun novel about two co-workers who plan to be each other's dates for the holidays and for a wedding. So what can happen when two single people pretend to be more than just acquaintances. The story is short to listen to and is full of physical attraction and romantic gestures. It is the perfect sweet Christmas story to get into the holiday spirit.

An audible original with a holiday theme. This audiobook is a short story with two pov's and therefore two narrators. It is a short but sweet Christmas miracle story that brings out heartwarming feelings and has a happy ending. And there is also romance and a dog! I recommend this audiobook to people who like short, cute Christmas stories.
