Review: Mistletoe Me, Baby by Katie Reus

Sigh, I love this novella by Katie Reus. Such a great friends to lovers novella that ties up the O'Connor family series so well.

She needs a fake fiancé…
With the holidays fast approaching, Miranda Flores makes up a fake fiancé so her well-meaning family will get off her back. She just never expected them to suddenly show up on her doorstep a couple weeks before Christmas, wanting to spend the holidays with her. So she turns to Nolan O’Connor, her sexy best friend, and asks him for the favor of a lifetime: she needs him to act the part of her fiancé until her parents leave town.

He wants forever…
Pretending to be engaged to the woman he’s already fallen for? No problem. Nolan agrees to Miranda’s fake engagement scheme because as far as he’s concerned, she’s the one. But he plays his role too well, because soon the entire town thinks they’re engaged and things get more complicated—especially since he can’t pretend with her anymore. Then tragedy strikes and Miranda tries to shut him out, but Nolan won’t let her. He’ll do whatever it takes to convince her that he wants to make her his forever.

What’s it About? Nolan’s been in love with Miranda for almost a year but she insisted on being just friends so that’s what Nolan’s been to her. Then Miranda’s parents surprise her with a visit and her mother insists on meeting the fiancée Miranda’s told her about. Who doesn’t exist, so she asks Nolan to pretend to be her fiancée which he jumps at because he sees it as a chance to show Miranda how he really feels about her. Then things start feeling less fake and more real until a tragic event shakes Miranda’s life and she tries to push Nolan away but Nolan’s waited too long to have a chance with her so he isn’t going away without a fight.

Overall reaction to the story? Mistletoe Me, Baby is such a feel good novella. It has all the makings of a steamy holiday story with Nolan and the rest of the O’Connor family who can make anyone feel like part of the family. I love this family, they’re loud, they’re fun, they love fiercely, and enjoy each other’s company. With Nolan being the last O’Connor to have his story, I felt a little sad because like I said before, this is a family that you just fall in love with. Nolan was such a good friend to Miranda and her nephew, I appreciated how considerate he was of them both but at the same time he wanted to show her how much he loved her and give her the chance to see him as more than just a friend. Miranda was such a sweetheart, she took in her nephew and is doing her very best by him and like a good parental figure, she worried she wasn’t doing things right. She had a big heart but she was also so lonely which wasn’t fair to a nurturing character like her.

As short as Mistletoe, Me Baby is though, it feels complete. I wasn’t left feeling like the story ended with a cliffhanger or feeling that it was rushed. With Nolan and Miranda having already know each other before the story starts, it saved a lot of time that was better devoted to building a romance. The chemistry between Nolan and Miranda was always present and it just needed a slight push to tumble into the lovers department. These two made such a great couple, they complimented each other without being drastic opposites. I’m glad that Nolan and Miranda were saved for last.
