That Mistletoe Moment by Cat Johnson, Kate Angell & Allyson Charles

That Mistletoe Moment by Cat Johnson, Kate Angell & Allyson Charles

 

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.

About the Book:

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…  

MADE UP
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!  

MIXED UP

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.  

MATCHED UP

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.

About Allyson Charles

Allyson Charles lives in Northern California. She’s the author of the "Pineville Romance" series, small-town, contemporary romances published by Lyrical Press. A former attorney, she happily ditched those suits and now works in her pajamas writing about men’s briefs instead of legal briefs. When she’s not writing, she’s probably engaged in one of her favorite hobbies: napping, eating, or martial arts (That last one almost makes up for the first two, right?). One of Allyson’s greatest disappointments is living in a state that doesn’t have any Cracker Barrels in it.
