Queen of Tarts Review of
by Rhian Cahill
Secret Santa by Rhian Cahill is delicious like a Christmas cookie. Yummy and satisfying. I adored this story of friends to lovers.
Jenn is dreading her first holiday since the loss of her parents. She keeps busy with her job at Morgan’s restaurant and tries to ignore her attraction to him. Morgan has decided to act on the chemistry between them and rigs the employee Secret Santa gift exchange game so that he gets her and she gets him.
A few of my fav lines…
♥ He was known for his decadent desserts, but Jenn thought he was far more appealing. The man was lickable from head to toe and she’d love to sample just a teeny tiny piece of him.
♥ He wanted to take his time and savour the fall. Or savour her fall. Morgan was already at the bottom, but, from where he stood, it sure felt like the top of the world.
I loved that this novella is sweet but not sappy, not sugary, not too spicy… it’s perfectly balanced. I adored seeing how the Secret Santa game played out. Morgan works hard to make Jenn give them a chance. I was rooting for them both to get exactly what was on their wish list this Christmas. Unwrap Secret Santa and settle in for a delicious treat… 😀
