Nicholas Light and Christmas Winter.....
Don't you just love those names?
As is Alexa Riley fashion, we have an erotic, cheesy story of instalove. The hero, Nicholas, is sexy and demanding. The heroine, Christmas, is a cheerful, selfless and sorry to say, pushover. Being a pushover or gullible and innocent heroine is what we've come to expect in an AR book.
Although I enjoyed, "Stealing Christmas," it was just okay for me. The story was predictable. There was no suspense, no angst and a sweet, sugary HEA.
Nicholas is an extremely wealthy businessman. He literally owns more properties than he can keep track of. Nicholas keeps to himself living and working in the castle he calls home. Yes, it is literally a castle! It is while working in his home office he realizes his life is about to change. While viewing the monitors for one of his malls, he sees a beautiful curvy woman dressed as an elf. She is setting up the mall's Christmas display. At that moment, Nicholas realizes one thing...he must have her. So begins his plans to get his "Christmas" present.
Christmas Winter was a sweet, friendly, young woman with a big heart and even bigger Christmas spirit. She loves the holidays and her job at the mall. Christmas never would have imagined she'd catch the eye of Nicholas Light. When she shows up at his home, as requested, she is not a little shocked at the attention she receives from the gorgeous Nicholas. Attention that has nothing to do with her job at the mall and everything to do with the fact that he desires her. Nicholas want her to move in with him. For always. Forever.
This story is the epitome of the "love at first sight" trope. In addition there are two cute epilogues. Alexa Riley does a good job at making the most unrealistic of fantasies into the the reality of our dreams.
Book One: Stealing Christmas
Christmas did not know what to expect from Nicholas invite to his party, but her first sight of him had her craving and yearning to get to know him on a personal level. The very first time Nicholas saw Christmas, he knew that he would not stop perusing her until she became his partner, his wife and the mother of his children.
Book Two: Snow and Mistletoe
Alex heard Noelle's voice for the first time and was instantly enamoured to her. There is nothing he would not give to persue her but he knows that it was not possible in his current situation. But faith stepped in and land her right on his door step. Alex decided that he can't let her out of his sight and he was going to do everything to keep her and make her love him.
The characters were loveable from the beginning, and even though it is an instant-love story, I love them.
The only negative for me was that this author puts two short stories (two very lovely stories) in one book, and I've already read the second story in another one of her books, so this felt like I paid twice for the same book.
A bonus read came from Snow and Mistletoe. That was a good holiday read with two people that valued their solitue. Each finding a level of comfort in the other.
In "Stealing Christmas," Snow loves her job as an events planner and decorator at the mall where she works, as it gives her a purpose and a way of not dwelling on the grief of losing her beloved mother.
Nicholas, the owner of the mall, has also lost his father and has become a recluse as a result. After seeing Snow on the security feed decorating the mall and making people happy, he falls in love and puts in motion a way for them to meet while hoping that Snow will feel the same.
In "Snow and Mistletoe" we meet Alex, a former publicist for a publishing house who moved to Montana from New York and started his company which helps authors find the "perfect fit for their audiobooks" by matching them with "the perfect readers" or narrators.
Noelle, a professed introvert, auditions for Alex and he falls in love with her voice. Alex sends Noelle Erotic/Romance novels to narrate, and she would read to him over the phone snippets of the story and they would talk daily. Both looked forward to speaking to each other daily and in this story, instead of the Hero taking the lead and trying to see if they could meet and take it from there, it is the Heroine, Noelle, who actually takes the bull by the horns.
Both stories were really quick erotic reads, with some grammatical errors, minimum angst, Happily-Ever-Afters and as the author stated, this is indeed the most "cheesiest and Christmas-y story ever."
