My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“A Prickly Christmas Kiss” by Allyson R Abbott is the first book in the Christmas Kiss series. This short and sweet novella follows Elf (Emma’s perfect nickname) and her Christmas adventure at a cabin in the woods outside of North Polerton. Elf was so happy to be spending Christmas with her friend Carla’s family cabin, until her perfect plans all fell apart. What happens is so much more than she was expecting and everything she needed. This story has all the magic of Christmas and all the fun as well! The setting, characters and perfect time of year help make this book a wonderful little read. I really enjoyed reading “A Prickly Christmas” and look forward to reading the rest of the series! So, I give “A Prickly Christmas Kiss” four stars!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Prickly Christmas Kiss is the first book in the Christmas Kiss series from Allyson R. Abbott. I have been reading these book out of order this season and they are not intertwining books. They are all freestanding novels. This one is just as wonderful for the holiday season as the others that I have enjoyed along the way. If you love adorable and heartwarming Christmas romances then this book is the perfect fireside read for you!

Emma Louise Fallon, ELF, yup her nickname is Elf lol is on a much needed getaway. Her supposed new boyfriend and her were supposed to be spending the perfect holidays together. That did not work out and so she has sworn off me and family for this holiday season. She recruits a friend for a getaway at a cabin in the woods. The last minute her friend can’t make it and she is left to fend for herself. Along the way lots of things go wrong, but everything is balanced with the spirit of Christmas, and the handsome Rudi. This is one you don’t want to miss, and while you are at is you might as well grab all four of them to devour before the season slips away!

A PRICKLY CHRISTMAS KISS (CHRISTMAS KISS SERIES – BOOK 1) BY ALLYSON R. ABBOTT – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

A Prickly Christmas Kiss

A Prickly Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book is all about the Christmas spirit! A Prickly Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott is the first book in the Christmas Kiss series. Emma or as her friend Carla calls her ELF due to her initials goes to a small town called Polerton, which oddly resembles the North Pole. She was supposed to go with Carla but Carla couldn’t make it. When she gets there she meets Mr. & Mrs. C, who seems to be just like Mr. & Mrs. Clause. When she finally gets to the cabin she learns quickly that living up in the woods isn’t as easy as it looks. Then there comes Sue. Sue is what ELF named this stray cat that found her. Sue is curiously smart and always knows what ELF needs. Sue’s name in the end was actually Santa’s Little Helper! For a few days ELF and Sue get into all kinds of mischief when she meets the local veterinarian/part-time police officer Rudi. Coincidentally, Rudi has a bright red nose when she meets him. Rudi is instantly attracted to ELF. This story is so cute that I couldn’t put this book down. Now, this book is definitely a romantic type of book rather than an erotic one due to the lack of sexy scenes. But I think that if the story were to have any sex scenes it would ruin it. I love it just as it is. I also love when animals are added to the storyline and especially when they have a comedic role just as Sue did. I truly enjoyed this book a lot and I cannot wait to read the next in the series!

A Prickly Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott is a five star novel. This is the first novel in the Christmas Kiss series. I am excited to continue reading this series. The puns in this book are awesome. I love how every character and place had its’ name for a reason and are all holiday themed. Emma Louise Fallon is the main character and goes by the name of Elf. She cannot believe her friend has bailed on her for their Christmas time apart from family drama. Her new man is no longer because of his lying and cheating ways. She needs this time with her girlfriend to regenerate her love for life otherwise she just might explode. But when she finds herself in this secluded cabin, alone, she isn’t sure if she is going to survive. Then a man shows up and tries to be her Prince Charming. Will she allow him into her life or will she continue to push everyone away?

5-Stars

This was such a sweet Christmas romance between Elf and Rudi. I felt like I was able to connect with Elf more while reading since the storyline focused more on her. I also loved Sue the cat. He was precious and played a key role in this novel. The storyline was easy to follow and kept my attention preventing me from putting this book down. I cant wait to read more in the Christmas Kiss series .

A Prickly Christmas Kiss is a beautiful Christmas present by Allyson R. Abbot, all nicely wrapped up under your Christmas tree (or Kindle). It is the first book in her Christmas Kisses series and I am wondering what else has she gotten in store that would beat this Christmasy story? AND I loved her play on all things Christmas!
I mean the names of the couple – RUDI and ELF (Emma Louis Fallon), then there is the shop keeper who looks like a Santa Claus and is called Nick and his wife is called Missis C …. And so on and on … This story is simple but it is filled with romance and magic and snow and … it will keep you at the edge of your seat until you find out who is who and what happens to our resident Rudi and Elf and let’s not forget our Sue, the magical cat …. You will want to pick up a copy, make yourself a cup of hot chocolate and indulge!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Prickly Christmas Kiss is a festive, witty and sexy little christmas story that I absolutely adored, and was written by Allyson R. Abbott. As I just love christmas, this little beauty was just the thing to curl up with. I laughed so hard I thought I busted a rib. These characters were so charming and vibrant, the words had me desperate for the next, and the next. I was bewitched by the creative and sassy way this author played with words. It was an incredibly enjoyable experience to devour this too short, but insanely eloquent tale. I had never heard of this author before reading this story. Now my library sure knows. I cannot wait to continue the festivities with the next story. 5 stars.

A Prickly Christmas Kiss
By Allyson R. Abbott

You can’t go wrong with reading a book by Allyson R. Abbott and A Prickly Christmas Kiss is no different. This is a nice and easy quick read and I didn’t put it down until I had finished the whole book, should only take a couple of hours of solid reading. What do you get when your nickname is Elf, you meet a man called Rudi and a couple called Mr and Mrs C and two broken hearts? A nice Christmas miracle maybe? Emma whose nickname was Elf was meant o be going away for Christmas with her best friend Carla, but as it happened on the way there Carla phoned Elf and told her that her car wasn’t going to make it, so she was sorry but she would have to pull out of their two week planned break in an isolated cabin that Carla had been to many times in her life. Elf not to impressed decided she would keep going and just spend the night there and come home. Elf’s two wishes for Christmas were being away from men and escaping another Christmas with her family. So, arriving at North Poleston is where she meets Mr and Mrs C in the general store where she bought supplies before heading to the cabin. Leaving the shop, she sees a police officer writing her a ticket explaining she was looking for gas the officer could see the most beautiful woman he had seen in his life. When Elf turned back to give the officer her license he had disappeared. Arriving at the cabin she meets a cat who even though he is a male cat decides to call him Sue. Two days later the cat has hurt his paw so off to the vet Elf takes Sue only to find out that he was the police officer from a couple of days ago. When he introduces himself as Rudi, she can’t do nothing but laugh. He questions the laugh and she say she has met Mr and Mrs C who reminds her of Mr and Mrs Claus, her nickname of Elf, the Vet/Police Officers name is Rudi and now he tells her that the cats name is Santa’s Little Helper. She also finds out that Rudi is Carla’s cousin and that Carla has spent a lot of time in the cabin which belongs to Mr and Mrs C. What Rudi and Elf don’t know is that Carla has set them up as she knows they will be perfect for each other. Will Carla be right in her thoughts? Or will Rudi and Elf be to heart broken from other relationships to see past their hurt?

A Prickly Christmas Kiss (Christmas Kiss: Book 1)
By Allyson R. Abbott
This story was a fun loving holiday read. I enjoyed reading this book, it made me laugh and swoon a bit. Christmas is my favorite time of year so this book was just what I was looking for. I thought the chemistry between Elf and Rudi was great and I loved their banter. I loved Sue (Santa’s Little Helper), he was adorable. The town where this takes place felt magical just like Christmas should feel. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series, I’m sure it will be a wonderful romantic holiday read just like this one.
