The Great Holi-Fake is 5/5 stars for me. I devoured this particular book in the anthology. I was a little sad once I had finished it only because I didn’t want it to end. If you like cooking shows, you will love this book. Even if they aren’t your jam, you will be entertained.
I was hooked from the get go and could see the characters vividly. Jodi Linton has a knack for making the characters come to life. The chemistry is off the charts even if Odie doesn’t want to acknowledge it completely. I think one of my absolute favorite things about this story is the characters are older than one normally sees. It was nice to see these characters in their 40s navigate the thing called love.
I will review the other 21 books as I read them. If they are as good as this one, it won’t take long to finish the anthology!
There are some great stories here with wonderful characters, lots of holiday cheer, witty dialog and of course a good bit of steam. I like being able to sample other authors’ work before investing in more.

007th Day of Christmas - K. L. Brady - Allie and Sean needs holiday dates and decide to help each other out. Secretly still crazy about each other. He uses these dates to woo her back but what about his secret? I loved Allie she is such a sweetheart who doesn't see her worth - crummy ex. Enjoyed the game at the party. Sweet ending.
Fake Holi*Date - Brynn North - Declan and Hattie have been best friends for years but would love to be more. They think the other friend zoned them years ago. Loved her grandma and his grandpa- such matchmakers. A Christmas competition may result in more than one winner.
Sweet December - Lyz Kelly - A thirty year old pact between friends Melissa and Brian needs to be fulfilled by their 50th birthdays which are coming up soon. Can these two really get married and fall in love in time?
Melissa Davenport was in a rut. You would think being the Commander of the Air Force Recruiting Service Center, she would be in heaven with this dream job. Just when she is moping and feeling down, she gets a message from her best friend Brian Newburg. Her mouth is agape when he says their pact is going to expire shortly on their birthdays. Both of them turn 50 years old on the same day.
Melissa remembers their pact. If either of them is not married, the two of them will. He asks her to accompany him to a Company retreat. This gives them a chance to test the waters on how they feel about each other as more than "friends".
Their journey has obstacles and many bumps along the way. Have the tissues on hand as this is a touching and heartfelt story.
Carmen Falcone- Bad Santa
This book focuses on Paxton and Julie. Julie is the manager of an exclusive outdoor mall and has a proposal for the owner but has been unable to get him to hear out her proposal. When she sees Santa aka Paxton talking to her boss she tries to get him to sit down and talk about the proposal she has but ends up with a fake date with Paxton in order to get heard by her boss, who she doesn’t know is Paxton’s uncle or even who Paxton even is. Paxton was a successful software developer who had been done dirty by his ex the year before so he was not looking forward to having to face his family this holiday season. They decide on a mutually beneficial plan of a work party fake date for Julie and a fake girlfriend/meet the family day for him. When he had first met Julie he was immediately attracted to her and felt things he hadn’t ever felt before and he had no plans to let her go if he could help it. One fake date leads to way more than they both initially anticipated and I am totally here for it. This was such a great story!!
Laurel Greer and Dee. J. Holmes- The Holidare
This book focuses on Beck and Gwen. Beck is a grumpy hockey player who wants nothing to do with the holiday festivities. When he goes to his sister's holiday party with the intention of talking her into moving out of her current apartment into something safer but Autumn has no intention of moving and leaving her roommate Gwen. When she stubbornly digs her heels in the ground and refuses, Beck decides to throw out a wager for her to move. The initial wager offer did not go how he expected and ended up accepting a wager with Gwen that they will spend holiday functions together getting him into the holiday spirit and if Gwen fails to make him enjoy the holidays, her and Autumn agree to move to the apartment that opened up in his building. Beck and Gwen honestly could not be more different on paper but the more time they spend together, the more they end up realizing that there was so much more to each other than they initially realized. They both seamlessly fit into each other's lives and added fun and joy to each experience while at the same time falling for each other. This was a great story and I love Beck and Gwen together!
Kat Baxter- Marry Christmas
This book focuses on Brooks and Maggie. Brooks and Maggie had fallen in love as teens but Brooks had rejected and completely destroyed both their hearts after his awful father got in the way. A decade later and Maggie ‘hates’ Brooks and how he treated her that fateful night everything went down (let's be honest, she still loved him but was just incredibly hurt still). When a meddling grandmother comes up with a plan to get them together by having them get married (she was quite clever and such a great character), it is the beginning of the sweetest second chance between 2 people who never lost the connection or the love they shared all those years before. They just needed the big push and to begin healing the broken hearts. Excellent story!
Kara Kendrick- Mr. Right Under the Mistletoe
This book focuses on Nick and Sydney. Nick is a professional football player and Sydney works in PR with the team he is currently working for. The two of them had dated until he was traded to a team across the country and Sydney couldn’t take the distance and not being able to see each other at all. When Nick is traded back to the team Sydney now works for, he takes full advantage in order to win back the love of his life. He never told his family that they broke up and pretty much tricked her into spending a week with him and his family over Christmas. Nick has a week to change her mind and get her to take him back. I absolutely loved this story and the 2 of them together! It was such a great story!
