The Stocking Was Hung is a standalone, Christmas story that will make you laugh, make you HOT and maybe even make you say, "Awwwww" a few times.
The Stocking was Hung, by Tara Sivec, is a romantic, sexy and hilarious Christmas novella that will leave you with a smile on your face. This novella delivers all the feels that you expect in a Christmas novella. It's filled with romance, holiday traditions and an excessive dose of laugh out loud moments. This is my first time reading a book by Tara Sivec. I have to admit that I own 6 of her books and after reading this little gem, I am making it a priority to read her previous work.
Noel is having a really bad week. The last thing she wants is to go back home for Christmas. Her family can be a bit overwhelming when it comes to her personal life. When she meets Sam, she thinks he could be the solution to her problems. The last thing she expected was for Sam to fit in so well with chaotic family. What started out as deal between two strangers soon becomes more. Will Noel and Sam declare their true feelings to each other and give themselves the gift of love for the holidays?
Noel and Sam are so perfect for each other! From the moment that they meet, their chemistry is undeniable and addictive. You will be cheering for their first kiss and your heart will be bursting with love for these two lovebirds. I connected to them from the very beginning of the story. I felt like my favorite romantic Christmas movie was playing in my head. I could picture every scene and feel every moment of this story. If you are a fan of romantic Christmas movie this is the book for you. If you are not a fan, I will guarantee that you will be one once you are done reading this wonderful Christmas novella.
The supporting characters all brought their little touch of awesome awkwardness to the story. I have never seen such a crazy family!!! OMG!! I want to spend Christmas with them and be inappropriate ... lol!! I want my matching pyjamas too!! I'm so jelly!! ;) Jokes aside, this as to be one of my favorite families in the book world. I love them to pieces and I am making it a holiday tradition to read this novella every year. Sit back, relax and enjoy this wonderful story. You won't be disappointed!!!
I give The Stocking was Hung, by Tara Sivec, 5 sweetly addictive, hilariously intoxicating, sizzling attraction, romantically heart-melting, hold the eggnog stars!
