The Good:

* The cover! Come on, you know you want to stare at it all day.

* The characters in this one are fabulous. In a novella, an author has to do a good job of introducing the characters and getting you to love them right away. They don't have the luxury of the pages that come with a full novel. Covington certainly does a brilliant job of creating memorable and likable characters with lots of chemistry. I was particularly fond of Nick - hot, British, and romantic - sign me up.

* Perfect mini read for the holiday season - I loved the connection between the romance and the Christmas carol, "Santa Baby". The length of this one makes it perfect for reading in between all the activities that are crammed into the holiday season.

* Covington's writing style is engaging and sensual. It gets an A++.

* The price - It's so worth the 99 cents. Trust me.

The Bad:

* The length - Yes, I know this is a novella and its supposed to be short, but I wanted MORE. I will certainly be looking to see what else this author has written.

The Naughty:

* The hotness quotient on this one is steamy. I loved that there was a lot of build up to the big moment. It didn't disappoint.

* You'll never be able to listen to "Santa Baby" again without blushing.

Overall Verdict:

Tessa Stoneman hasn’t been able to get long-time friend and business partner Nicholas Boone out of her head since they shared a single kiss in college. Even when she dated Nicholas’s best friend. Now that she’s giving up her position at GameNerdz to strike out on her own—and now that she’s single—maybe it’s the right time to see if there’s still something between them.

Nicholas knows once Tessa leaves the company she helped found, they might drift apart. Before she starts her own company in the new year, he wants to woo the woman he fell in love with during college. So he poses as her Secret Santa, gifts her with items from the song “Santa Baby,” and plans a big reveal at the company holiday party. But when his best friend wants to rekindle his romance with Tessa, will Nicholas lose his last chance?
