    1. ✧ ✧ ✧ 3 1/2 STAR RATING ✧ ✧ ✧ Please note this review may contain spoilers.I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.New Year (a Novella) is exactly as described: a new year novella that took me about an hour and a half to read.Two years ago, Braydon lost his wife Jessie to a drunk driver, leaving him a single father to their two year old son, Cody.

    2. If you are looking for a quick good read make sure to pick this one up. This book will definitely have you feeling many mixed emotions. I wish the author would've given us a little more background on the characters, but other than that this is a great read.My heart went out to both Annie and Braydon for the loss they have both suffered. Braydon and Annie connect right away and there is no questioning the love Annie has for Braydon's son. These two make you believe that no matter what life deals [...]

    3. If you're looking for a super short read, this is your book. I love how the chapters are broken down into months and you're given just a sneak peak into their lives, at that moment. Imagine taking a longer length book and just taking out the big moments that is this book. I do wish some of the 'moments' were longer or there was more background given. I had a slightly hard time connecting with the characters because of this. I just felt like a big piece to the puzzle was missing and I didn't beli [...]

    5. This book was an amazing Novella that I got the lucky chance to read the ARC. I loved it from the beginning all the way to the end. The story is sweet and loving mixed with sadness that will touch your heart!!! I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars because it defiantly deserves more than 5! The feelings were real behind the words that L. Mertz wrote and I could feel everything the characters were going through. I recommend this book for everyone to read.

    6. I thought this was a really cute short story. About how a tragedy can bring two people together. but how a simple mistake can also break you apart. only thing i wish was a little longer in some places. but for a quick read i would recommend

    7. What better way to start the new year than with a new romance? In L. Mertz’s novella, the reader is treated to a short but not always sweet courtship between Braydon and Annie. He’s a widower hotelier with a 6 year old son and a meddlesome mom. She’s a newly underemployed nurse with a knack for cooking and talking non-stop. Together, they have chemistry, but seem to have just as many misunderstandings between them.The story is told from Braydon’s perspective, which isn’t very common in [...]

Being a single dad and operator of a prestigious hotel, having a mother figure in Cody's life would certainly make things simpler, and a companion to mend his heart is just icing on the cake. So his mother sets him up on a blind date with a he [...]
