    a feel-good fantasy story about centaurs and human. A delightful read from beginning to end. Hopefully I'll be able to read the next one.

    All I Want for Christmas is about Reyna, who was placed in the care of the kind-hearted Millers after Child Protection Services rescued her from her pill-popping, hallucinating mother. At first, she was adamant & refused to accept her new family, but as time progressed, she loved having a new one. Then she met her foster sibling, Neil. Theirs was a special kind of relationship – they bring out the best of each other when together. And also the worst. Which led to Neil doing something that tipped the police and him escaping to nowhere. Reyna felt betrayed, hurt, and her family, devastated. Trusting someone, or anyone for that matter, had always been one of Reyna’s issues so when Neil wounded her heart, she never wanted anything to do with him. Until they saw each other again. Until he saved him from a possible assault. Until he joined her foster family for Christmas. Until he kissed her again. Soon, they would have to let go of their feelings, learn to forgive and forget, although the truth is, these emotions are easier said than done. Will Reyna and Neil ever get what they want for Christmas? Kate Givans impressed me again with her Christmas offering. If there’s one thing I learned from this novella, it is that when one falls in love, trust should always come along. Although Trust is not something all loving relationships start with. But with Reyna and Neil, they learned to trust and love the hard way. They’re both scarred from their past, they’re both still reeling to face the future. Like what Neil had said, “We’re not that different. Different scars, different pasts, but trauma, pain, loss, hurt.. those things bind us together. We know what they are and we know what they feel like, and because of that, we’ll take special care of each other.” Big words from a troubled man. Big words from a man I am starting to admire. Big special words that struck my heart.

    I never thought I'd get affected while reading this beautiful book. On the first night that I got this book, as I lay on my bed imagining what might have happened between Francesca & Cade in the past, I knew that somehow this past will catch up on them in the future. What I learned about them just sets me crying and sobbing on my pillow. Darn, Felicia Tatum did this to me! Yes, you mad me cry to sleep after reading your book, Ms. Tatum. But don't worry, I'm not mad at you. I was just overwhelmed. The heartbreak, the reunion, Cade's drunken fit, Francesca's emotional turmoil, all these and more made this novel a very captivating read. Francesca is the Yin to Cade's Yang, that's how I see them. They really fit together. I couldn't wait to read the next story.
