Secret Santa by Rhian Cahill is delicious like a Christmas cookie. Yummy and satisfying. I adored this story of friends to lovers. 

court of reviews poster + queen
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… 😀

From bestselling author Rhian Cahill. Sometimes Santa doesn’t give you what you want — he gives you what you need.

The last thing Jenn wants this Christmas to be is merry. Hibernating in her apartment is the perfect plan for someone who has lost way more than just her Christmas cheer. She’ll re-emerge on December 26th and move on with her life.

Morgan has had just about enough of dancing around the sexual chemistry between himself and his manager, Jenn. If he has his way, she won’t spend this Christmas — or any other — alone. With the help of a bogus set of secret Santa envelopes, he’s going to deliver a Christmas present to the woman he loves, one she’ll never forget!
