The Way She Reads

My thoughts on everything I read; good, bad and indifferent.

Wonder Aussie Christmas Short

A Chris-mas Miracle (Romance on the Go) - Nikka Michaels

Nikka Michaels tells good stories and writes good books. Nikka Michaels also has the most amazing talent for telling amazing, fully formed, short stories.


Short stories frequently leave me feeling cheated. All too often it feels as if something is missing. Maybe there wasn’t enough back story, maybe the characters remained one dimensional or maybe the ending was rushed or too abrupt. Not so with this author. She manages to get it all in thirty short pages; multi-dimensional, funny and interesting characters, a believable back story, a very hot encounter and to then crown it all with a satisfying finale. I’ll be damned if I understand how she does it, but she manages it time and again.


Drew was nerdy and all the more charming for it. He’d no idea he might be attractive and undervalued himself constantly, but he also had a rather silly sense of humour and a big heart.


I have to admit I fell a little bit in love with Chris. When the ‘full of fun party-animal’ turned out to be a sensitive, trustworthy and loyal friend my heart melted, as did Drew’s.

The dialogue in this story sparkled and Chris and Drew together were hot as hell. I couldn’t think of a better read if you’re looking for something short, sweet, funny, and hot as hell.
