  • Unrequited friendship?

    Nine years of unrequited....friendship? John "Cav" Cavendish meets his best friends' intended and falls in love with her. He's an unrepentant rake (this part was kind of icky and honestly, unnecessary as we were hit over the head with it repeatedly as was quite frankly, distracting). Nine years, later, Lady Emily Rutledge has been widowed for five years and is just now moving on. So, she's throwing a 12 Days of Christmas party (this was clever and entertaining). Cav is her best friend and confidant, always there for her after Andrew died. Emily is confused and just reawakening from a limbo as a widow. She's seeing Cav in a whole new light. Cav is very well developed and understands Emily better than she knows herself (this was awesome). What I liked was their communication and understanding. How close their friendship truly is and what's better than friends to lovers? Of course the path isn't easy, but I really enjoyed both Cav and Emily taking a chance and evolving their relationship. The right amount of steam and sweet. Rakes and wallflowers are NOT compatible couples. Recommend.

  • Heartwarming Christmas Novella

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. Mismatched Under the Mistletoe is a second chance at love novella by Jess Michaels. When his best friend Andrew Rutledge told John Cavendish (Cav) that he’d fallen in love and was going to get married Cav had his doubts as he felt they had wild oats to sow and adventures to explore before settling down. Meeting Lady Emily made him understand completely why his friend had fallen under her spell because for him too it was love at first sight. Nine years later and five years after the sudden death of Andrew Cav is under pressure from his grandfather to marry and he realizes that the Twelve Days of Christmas themed house party Emily is holding with the idea of matching up some rakes and wallflowers may be his last chance to tell her how he feels and to see if there is any hope for them as a couple with out ending their close friendship. This was one of the best novellas I’ve read this year, Jess Michaels excels at the form, and I highly recommend it. Steam Level: Medium. Publishing Date: November 10, 2020. #MismatchedUnderTheMistletoe #JessMichaels #HistoricalRomance #HistoricalRomanceNovella #SecondChanceAtLove #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #NetGalley

  • Best friends forever

    This was a very feel good book. Lady Emily and Lord Cavendish meet through his best friend and her fiancee, Andrew. It is love at first sight for Cav. But Emily and Andrew only have eyes for each other. So Cav resigns himself to be the very best friend possible to both. Thru the death of Andrew and the death of her parents, Cav is there for Emily. Thru the years they become extremely close but always just friends. Cav needs to marry, but he can't picture himself with anyone other than Emily. Can he make her see there can be so much more to their relationship? Jess Michaels has you rooting for Emily and Cav to work things out. And when they get their happily ever after, all is how it should be. 5 stars I want to thank Netgalley for the chance to review this book.

  • Wonderful Historical Holiday Romance

    Mismatched Under the Mistletoe by Jess Michaels How hard it must be to hide your love from the woman married to your best friend…for years and years to have to be around the woman you love without being able to be more than a good friend. And then to have to continue even after the woman is a widow…will the time ever be right for John Cavendish and Emily Rutledge to be together? Hope springs eternal and at a matchmaking country house party the situation might change but will they change in favor of John finally achieving the love of his life…or not? Emily has the idea of playing matchmaker with the 12 Days of Christmas theme so invites a selection of people she hopes will find love while under her roof. She is not thrilled with the results or with some of the animals brought to be part of the entertainment BUT she hopes it won’t all be in vain. This book was so much fun! I felt so badly for Cavendish as he waited and waited and took such good care of Emily. I was hoping that she would realize what a good man he was and fall for him…as they both deserved to be happy. I also wondered about some of the guests at the party and hope they will show up in future books not yet written yet. Did I like this book? Yes Would I read more by this author? Definitely Thank you to NetGalley and The Passionate Pen LLC for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
