12 Months of Romance/24 Reasons to Love by Erleen Alvarez, Kaate Anolin, Ysa Arcangel, et al; is a holiday anthology of romance stories for every month of the year, based around holidays. The short stories are all different and range from sci-fi, friends that become lovers to gay romance. The stories, although short, will give you a quick glimpse into how the characters meet and fall in love. Some of the short stories were so intriguing that I wish the story was longer so I can find out how it ended between the couple. All the authors in this anthology are new to me and I enjoyed the different spin of each of the stories. Will you find your next book boyfriend in one of the stories in this anthology? There are several to pick, from alpha to doctors.
I really enjoyed Until the last Petal Falls (Sakura Season) by kit Salazar. This short was really well written and the characters were well written. I loved that Salazar transitioned from high school to a reunion without making it seem like the reader missed a lot. I also felt like the story was well wrapped up.
Another short I enjoyed in the Anthology was The Second One by Eris Peñaluna. I honestly wasn't expecting a well written well resolved love triangle. There is something about how the different types of love are captured within so few pages. I believe this type of live triangle is one of the most common in everyday life so it was very relatable. I have seen 500+ page books not capture this so well.
Meet me in the Aisle (weddings) by Farrah. F. Polestico was another one that had a beautifully written ending.
I think my favorite most resolved ending was with the short Giovanni Antonio (All Saints Day) by Aileen Santos. I also lived that there were a fictional book excerpts within the short and it added to the story in such a unique way.
I also loved the diversity A feast at Midnight(Mabon, the Wiccan harvest festival) by Barbie Babieto brought to this anthology. It was a great story that brought major differences than the others.
I give 12 months of Romance: 24 reasons to love a holiday anthology 5/5 stars. Most of the authors were new to me but they are all very talented in writing full well resolved short stories.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
