    Another lovely and beautiful short storyI love reading the books about hope and love and I'm glad I picked up this one It truly warmed my heart and brought a big smile to my face after finishing it I'll definitely read of this author's books

    I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI’m a sucker for Christmas romances – it doesn’t matter if it is paranormal regency or contemporary – and I really liked this one I was originally a bit thrown off by the formatting of the book – some of the dialogue from different characters seemed to flow into single sentences which made following the conversation confusing but I think I have to attribute to this being an ARC eBook and perhaps these things weren’t cleaned up yet Dina is a mother of a 10 month old boy and she knows she was not a nice person before her son came along and she wants to be a better person Dina starts off the story trying to find the baby’s father to make him pay child support but soon finds out that the father is no long around Period She instead meets Ben her lover’s older brother a man still grieving his wife’s death from cancer nearly 10 years prior Ben sees an instant family in Dina and her son and offers her marriage so that Dash his nephew can stay in his life The character development in this story is wonderful – and one of my favorite parts is Dina’s verbal diarrhea when she gets nervous – everything gets blurted out all at once and it made me laugh out loud The relationship between Dina and Ben although it seems awfully uick at first this is a novella but is believable when you understand the emotional places that both of them are coming from I love how the author wove Christmas into the story – Ben’s family had stopped celebrating Christmas long ago because of his mother’s death and having him introduce Dina and Dash to all the things in his town and house that he loved about Christmas were very heartwarming

    OK so it's not Christmas any but I still read this one anyway maybe trying to fool myself that I'm still on vacation? It was a nice little addition to the series and was superb as a stand alone story Two interesting likable characters and a normal girl meets billionaire story that is credible than most for sure I'll be honest there were a few moments when I felt that it was too incredible to be enjoyable The hero swearing off all women because his wife died 10 years before? OK I've thankfully not lost a spouse but it felt over worked Likewise the hero and heroine's agonies over marrying someone who was clearly suited to them were just too overdone for meI did feel the length was just about right which actually lead me to uestion whether the other books in the series were perhaps better suited to a novella format? I've read Dangerous Curves Ahead and it felt much too longThankfully the curviness of this heroine isn't labored and is really just a way of making it part of the series3 stars I liked it

    This was a very short Christmas story centered around a curvy girl and her young son It reminded me a bit like the nativity story but slightly different as wellI didn't like Dina as a character She was too brash and yet too guilt ridden to really get into her as a character I loved Ben though how he stepped up and was trying to handle his brother's problem I liked how flawed and tortured he came across as yet trying to move past all his hurts He was the one character I could easily connect withAll things considered this was a good little Christmas story but not a great one

    I loooove this Dina's the one we hate in book one yet in this book She's lovable I like her wit and the way she carried herself I didn't see her old bitchiness at all and her chemistry with Ben is amazing I wish it could be full length novel instead of novella But yeah I enjoyed it Look forward to finally read all books in this series

    From the Publisher through Netgalley in exchange of an honest reviewRecently I found out that I actually don't mind novella's in fact I really enjoy them In my opinion these little books give you a brief glimpse at the author and their writing style Especially if it's an author that is new to you Since the novella's that I have read recently were mostly for characters that don't get their own actual book I don't mind it if I had not had a chance to jump into book one yetHave Yourself a Curvy Little Christmas was a novella for a Perfect Fit series and it was an introduction to me to Sugar Jamison and her Perfect Fit series I have to admit I chose this novella based on the fact that the main character has curves and as a woman with some curves myself it's kind of refreshingDina Gregory returns home to New York and all she wants is to find her son's father and for the man to claim some responsibility for him What she didn't expect was to have a run in with the man's older grouchy brother insteadWhat I really liked about this bookIt was a Christmas novella so that by itself got it points But no I really liked Dina She was loud and obnoxious wiry witty and spoke her mind Complete opposite from Ben the grouchy millionaire who just lost his brother and is alone for Christmas due to the fact that he no longer has a family leftI loved the way Ben just came in and stepped into the fatherly shoes even if Dash the baby was his brother's doing But due to the fact that Dash's dad can no longer be in the picture and Ben had always wanted a child it was a very touching moment to me I loved the way he interacted with Dash and everything he went through to provide them with the perfect first Christmas even at the chance that it bought in bad memoriesThis book follows book one in the series but I actually had no problems following the storyline It was well done from start to finish The fact that Sugar Jamison was able to do that was really impressive to me on her behalf The story flowed wonderful the dialog made me laugh and even thought it had me wondering what happened between Dina and her family it didn't leave me hanging It was all nicely fit and explained at the end of the bookSugar Jamison's writing is sassy and there was plenty of romance in the book There is sizzle and sparks between Ben and Dina and you just cannot help but love them yourself The only love scene in the end was much tamer then what I usually read so I didn't mind itI like Christmas romances and I loved the lengths Ben went to make Dina happy and give her the first Christmas for Dash that she would remember It was sweet and swoon worthy watching Ben change from the type of character he was in the beginning of the book It was also nice to know that Dina had changed too I suspect if I read book 1 first I probably wouldn't have liked herWhat not so muchThe fact that it was short heh I was just settling into the comfort of Dina and Ben and all the magical Christmas stuff and then it endedMemorable uotes“I think building a house on top of a mountain was just a way to keep chubby people out They should just have a sign that says 'No Fat Chicks Allowed' But they don't know mommy do they baby? They're not keeping me out”“You don't think I went overboard? It looks like Christmas threw up in here”“Lord Jesus I cannot believe my eyes” Dovie yelled “Benjamin Rowe get off of that girl right this moment”

    I didn't know that Have Yourself a curvy Little Christmas is a part of Perfect Fit series but nevertheless I didn't have a feeling that I am missing something from the past Of course there were some reminiscences to the previous book I've got the idea that Dina was a bad person and hurt people that she loved but it didn't spoil the bookI got to know Dina when she was looking for a father of her son Of course he didn't know that he is a father and she decided that it is the time that he learns his son Instead of him she gets his brother who closes himself in his big big house alone with only 12 people of his servants and since 9 years mourns the death of his wife When he gets to know Dina and her son Dash he decides that the name Rowe must survive and so he is going to marry DinaJust like this He decided and that's all Sorry but this idea or especially the way that he decided this didn't convince me I had also some issues with Dina I thought what the hell who is this vulgar and arrogant woman? Luckily she is also very funny and she is extremely chatty and it rescued her in my eyes In my eyes Dash was too matured for his 10 months and it didn't sound real The only person that I warmed to was Ben hmmm a cookie Under the coldness he was a great man funny clever and he would be a great dad for sure He could only take into account what other people think and want as well but actually the way he decided he is going to marry Dina was the only minus point for himThe sexual tension in this book was overwhelming too much for my liking and although I like to read a good bonkbuster I think here it was not so suitable Altogether I hoped I would enjoy this novella much Nevertheless it was a nice short read written in an engaging wayI received a copy of this book from publisher via NetGalley

    Reviewed by MarissaBook provided by NetGalley for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookAs the book starts Dina is cold and pissed and not in a Christmas mood I love that about her She’s just spent five days on a bus with a baby because she can’t afford to fly and now she has to face the baby’s father – who fled at the very first mention of the word “baby” Honestly who would be cheerful at that point? I’m just happy Dina isn’t one of those always smiling never lets life get her down types of characters I think I would have thrown my reader at the wall if she had beenOn the flip side Ben takes one look at Baby Dash and recognizes himself He believes Dina outright no paternity test reuired I find this a little odd from someone who is wealthy on the level of Donald Trump or Ted Turner However Ben is likeable and so makes up for this little flaw He begins gruff and overworked typical of a single man attempting to hold a family business together – but Dash soon has his humanity showing again much to the delight of his childhood nannyNot a long book Have Yourself a Curvy Little Christmas is very enjoyable – light and fluffy with the inevitable happily every after ending I recommend this if you are looking for a uick read during those few rare uiet moments during the holidays

    This is going to be a very short review because I haven't got much to say about this book one way or another I didn't realize that another book came before this when I reuested it on Netgalley so that part is on me That being said I felt like I was missing something I didn't particularly care for either of the main characters and because of this disconnect to both the characters and the plot line I didn't really care about what happened I would love to read the first book and give this novella another try afterwards but as a standalone read it was just average it didn't blow me away but it wasn't awful either It was a short Christmassy read that was pleasant enough and has an adorable cover but I think people that are familiar with the series will enjoy it than I did This review can also be found on my blog Bitches n Prose
