My review (published at Read, Run, Ramble):
Thank you St. Martin’s Press via Netgalley for providing me with an early copy of this book!
Not a lot to say here – the stories were all enjoyable and fun, but somewhat similar in many ways. I read them one or two at a time over a span of several weeks for that reason. As with any set of short stories I enjoyed some more than others, but honestly I don’t think there were any that I outright didn’t like.
Within the stories readers will find small differences between the YA romantic tales. Magic, interracial connections, international boundaries crossed, and even one tale told from a male perspective (rare in the romance genre).
If you’re looking for some light, feel-good, easy-to-read stories to supplement your holiday reading this year, grab this one.
I was provided with an ARC of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I am not compensated for any of my reviews.
