Blame It on the Mistletoe is what I needed yesterday You know when you re not quite feeling able to focus too much on something, because you have so many things on your mind Well, this short story offered me an escape and I could just relax and read it, my head brewing less and less with things as chapters flew by It is short It is sweet It is light But it is a little bit poor on the dear Christmassy atmosphere The story takes place in December, but, except for the mistletoe thing and little Christmas references, I could easily see this story taking place during any other season The fact that it wasn t a heavy book helped me get into the holiday mood, but I wished it containedelements linked to the celebration.Mick and Fielding are sharing an apartment They re best friends and get along very well Fielding is the geek one He takes his studies seriously Mick does too but almost seems like he breathes books, computer and knowledge Still, he knows how to have fun and interact with others BUT, what he doesn t know is how to kiss He never locked his lips with anyone and needs Mick s expertise to help him with that, so he can become ready when someone will Mick refuses I mean, he s not gay, and he knows it Why would he kiss a guy A guy he starts feelingandattached to But, no, he can t He won t That s NOT who he is or is it Could it be that he might actually feel something for his friend Something on the romantic side This has such a gay for you vibe I realized recently that those aren t of my favorite reads, since they tend to feel very unrealistic to me, and this did too, but the author actually convinced me with Mick hooking up with plenty of girls but not having a true relationship because he doesn t feel comfortable with them So I didn t mind it, but the I don t think this is how it would go in real life feeling I had was still present throughout Still, I repressed it as much as I could and tried to only focus on the chemistry between characters, which was easily noticeable Fielding made this story for me He is adorkable But, Mick is the one I could understand best, in a way It is strange to say this, but everything he was thinking felt like something I would too, if I were in that situation Sometimes I even predicted his next lines, which is something I usually can never do with characters in a story, except if the story in question is banal, predictable and cheesy But that was not the case here.The pacing is fast, the dialogs fun, the characters adorable in their own way, but some of the secondary ones though aren t original and quite clich in fact The kind we can see in many books or hear of head cheerleader, best girl friend that givesthe impression to be a psychologist and living only for the protagonist than anything else.I haven t read many short Christmassy M M stories this month maybe 3 4 but so far I haven t stumbled upon any that I wouldn t recommend These are just right if you want something light or spend your evening with cute M M characters This is a novella set during the holiday season that might please you

    4 adorkable stars Review completed November 24, 2014 The thing about Fielding was, the other shoe always dropped eventually Because Fielding was like a database Nothing you ever said or did, or that anyone else ever said or did in Fielding s presence, was not noted, scrubbed over carefully, hung out to dry, starched, and redelivered in a clear plastic bag sooner or later. So let s drop the other shoe, thenI want you to teach me how to kiss, Fielding said in his most arrogant voice4 adorkable stars Review completed November 24, 2014 The thing about Fielding was, the other shoe always dropped eventually Because Fielding was like a database Nothing you ever said or did, or that anyone else ever said or did in Fielding s presence, was not noted, scrubbed over carefully, hung out to dry, starched, and redelivered in a clear plastic bag sooner or later. So let s drop the other shoe, thenI want you to teach me how to kiss, Fielding said in his most arrogant voice It came out as a demand, like Fetch me the lamp from the sideboard, wenchMick is explaining to Fielding how to form the best snowballs I glowered at her You poor bastard, Sam said Life can be so cruel You re missing the point I m not gay Sam rolled her eyes to show her opinion of that Then she thought about it Well, you ve certainly been to bed withwomen than any gay guy in history Maybe you re into girls and boys, ever consider that Maybe you re an equal opportunity employer A switch hitter A man of many moods Like oysters AND snailsAfter devouring Unwrapping Hank, I just had to download Blame It on the Mistletoe right away which turned out to be yet another engagingly penned, lovely, hilarious and fun Christmas novella by Eli Easton By the way what mistletoe Blame it on Eli. She has these Christmas shorts down to a fine art I loved both main characters, especially the adorkable Fielding Love me some highly intelligent geek Anytime I loved to see the inexperienced, sheltered and self conscious Fielding open up He practically thawed and lit up like a Christmas tree when he was with Mick Well, and Mick, the ladies man, had a hard time taking the plunge and leaping over the fence straight into gay territory I felt the urge to give him the final nudge just do it already I liked how protective Mick felt about Fielding and he really did take good care of him.My issuesChristmas stories are usually sweet and carefree and rightly so So when Mick remembered a view spoiler sexual experience he had with his best friend s aunt my jaw almost dropped to the floor She was thirty years old at that time and Mick was fourteen Excuse me but I had to read that twice because I felt like a stone had hit me on the head Firstly, I found that memory disturbing because it s sexual abuse even though Mick didn t have a problem with it and secondly, I found it evendisturbing because it was mentioned only briefly, like it wasn t anything grave Still, any way you look at it, it s abuse and the aunt exploited a kid, a teenager I don t care if he was horny, it s just wrong hide spoiler Long story short, something like that doesn t belong in a sweet Christmas novella.And last but not least the author took a serious detour into Sapsville during the epilogue It made my teeth hurt and I could have done without that Thank you very much Also, was it necessary to weave the view spoiler proposal into the plot so soon Geez, these two guys are darn young I m of the opinion that they should have waited a few years before they got hitched Besides, it wasn t even a proposal, Fielding practically ordered Mick to marry him hide spoiler Very romantic Not.Anyway, I don t intend to sound negative because I really did enjoy this quick read very much A super quirky and super duper cute Fielding who turned out to be very cool and sexy managed to put a silly smile on my face all the time And Mick, the gorgeous jock, wasn t anyone to sneeze at either It cannot be denied, these two guys formed a very special and gorgeous couple and I m glad they got their happy ending There s definitely something to be said about the friends to lovers theme Extra thumbs up from moi More please Recommended read

    Blame It on the Mistletoe is book one in the Blame It on the Mistletoe series by Eli Easton This is a holiday M M New Adult romance that I would classify as best friends to lovers The first word that comes to mind with this book is delightful I couldn t help but to love these two They were just completely adorable I m not even a huge nerdy hero fan but Fielding had me at hello The entire book is told from Mick s point of view.Mick Colman needs a housemate to share the rent with He s not Blame It on the Mistletoe is book one in the Blame It on the Mistletoe series by Eli Easton This is a holiday M M New Adult romance that I would classify as best friends to lovers The first word that comes to mind with this book is delightful I couldn t help but to love these two They were just completely adorable I m not even a huge nerdy hero fan but Fielding had me at hello The entire book is told from Mick s point of view.Mick Colman needs a housemate to share the rent with He s not sure what to think when he first meets the genius child prodigy, Fielding Monroe But they fast became best friends Mick feels protective of Fielding He helps him to eat healthier, gets him to start running, change up his wardrobe a little, and introduces him to all of his favorite movies They are pretty much inseparable Until Fielding asked him to teach him how to kiss.Fielding had been a child prodigy He was a grad student at age nineteen He had also missed out on so many of life s experiences Including a first kiss With a department holiday party coming up, he wants to be prepared for the mistletoe So who better to teach him how to kiss than the best kisser on campus Mick is straight He s known for being a bit of a player He s never had a real relationship He s shocked when Fielding asks him to teach him how to kiss There s no way he can do that But when he really thinks about it, the thought is oddly appealing.This was such an adorable story Mick is so shocked at his own reactions to Fielding And I think Fielding is about the most adorable man I ve ever read about He knows what he wants and has no hesitation asking for it It even had the cutest epilogue The book left me all giddy and I am so glad I added it to my holiday reading The only reason it is only four stars is just that it was a very slow burn My impatience wanted things to happen sooner And because it was pretty short I am definitely readingof this author Just a delightful little book.Forabout this book and so many , come and visit me at Carol s Crazy Bookish World.https www.facebook.com groups Carol
