Three 20-something women, three authors and three chances with a new app that lets them build a boyfriend is the premise for this clever anthology. Please read on for my review of
That Mistletoe Moment
These three stories are light, cute and clever, perfect for that bite of holiday cheer when you need something easy to escape with. An interesting twist on both the newer ideas of internet dating and the incorporation of the ability to ‘build’ the perfect mate for yourself, the modern take is enjoyable for all.
Nicole, Riley and Rachel all want that special connection for the holidays, but everyone has a very different idea of just what it is that will make their dreams come true. Each woman has her own idea of what a boyfriend should be for them, and like many of us, the list could be endless. With several options and opportunities for choices – each learns to appreciate their newly revealed creations.
With a story that brings the app creator’s life to light, complete with his own opinions of the women who have made him a success by using the app, there is a bit of something for everyone.
Reasonably solid if quick reading and developing romances are the highlight here. A touch of the holidays runs through the stories, while I wasn’t hearing sleigh bells, I did see that this collection will fit nicely in for those pre-holiday, get in the mood reads.

As the holidays descend, three single women take a thoroughly modern approach to good old-fashioned romance, and wonder if the best—and most complicated—gift of all is just a click, tap, or swipe away…
Like a Christmas miracle, the Build a Boyfriend App lets you simply input the stats of your dream man, and witty texts, passionate emails, and hot Instagram pics start flooding in. No more awkward questions or pitying looks as you face the holidays alone!
But even the best technology has its glitches. When real-life emotions come into play, this trio of twenty-somethings find themselves in a tangle of crossed signals, flying wrapping paper, disastrous Christmas parties…and surprising kisses.
Yet despite the confusion of their mistletoe misadventures, when the New Year dawns, these very satisfied women just may find themselves waking up with true love beside them.
