    One thought on “Family: A Holiday Novella”

    1. 3.5 StarsWhile Partners was very focused on Stephen's past and family, Family: A Holiday Novella is very much focused on Russ and the relationship he has with his own family.This is Russ and Stephen's first Christmas together and they have invited Russ's sister and father to Atlanta for the holiday's so that Stephen can get to know them and they him. Russ is all kinds of tense about it, considering that his relationship with hi sister had been strained for most of her life, thanks to the bigoted [...]

    2. I knew I would love this book. I have had the pleasure of beta-reading for the last two ‘Equals’ stories – which I adored - but wasn’t able to for this one, so it’s been killing me that I didn’t get to read it until now. I can happily say it was worth the wait. Stephen and Russ never disappoint me.Because I read this over the holiday and I’ve had guests, I haven’t been able to write the review, which is unfortunate, because I’m one of those that forget details within hours of f [...]

    3. Non c’è niente di meglio che ritrovare dei personaggi che avevamo amato in versione natalizia, perché ci danno modo di conoscerli un po’ di più dentro la cornice del periodo più magico dell’anno.Questa novella parte qualche mese dopo la fine del secondo libro, ovvero dopo il viaggio nelle origini di Stephen, nella città della sua infanzia, per il funerale del padre.Russ e Stephen stanno per affrontare il loro primo Natale insieme e stanno ancora lottando per trovare un loro equilibrio [...]

    4. Over the first two books in this series, Equals and Partners, I’ve gotten quite attached to both Russ and Stephen. I’ve been invested in their relationship and happiness from the very first moment they got together and enjoy every glimpse into their lives as it comes my way. The wonderful thing about these stories, for me, is the steady and realistic progression of the relationship between Russ and Stephen. If you’re anything like me you often wonder what might happen next to the character [...]

    5. I can read Christmas stories any time of the year, especially heartwarming ones like this, after suffering in “Partners” it was nice to just relax and enjoy.It’s their first Christmas together and Stephen has decided to invite Russ’s family.In the past, Russ had quite a good relationship with his father, Alan. It might not have been perfect but their was genuine affection, unlike his sister, problems arose because she was raised by her homophobic aunt after their mother abandoned them an [...]

    6. This was a perfect addition to the Equals series and the love story of Russ and Stephen. I've been wondering about that box that Miss Esther gave Stephen from his father's things. I loved finally getting to meet Russ' family too. I won't lie, there was some dread I was fearing when faced with Addison meeting Stephen considering the way their aunt had raised her but it worked out even better than I expected. Such a lovely and beautifully written Christmas story. I look forward to more of Russ and [...]

    7. Reconnecting can be difficult at times, especially when you really want it to happen perfectly.Brigham's Christmas story with Russ and Stephen is a wonderful reminder that not everything goes exactly as planned, but when you can deal with what is thrown at you in a positive way, you can be happy in the end. These two guys are opening up more with themselves, each other, and allowing others to see it too! What a great holiday read of these two sexy men. I adored Alan, loved Russ, and I want to hu [...]

    8. This was a very sweet, heart warming story of Stephen and Russ getting together for the first time with Russ' family!! A little anxiety thrown into the mix especially since Stephen's father had passed a few months ago. Stephen still struggles with the fact that he no longer has a family and the hatred his parents had, but now Russ' family is now his. Great story during the holidays!!

    9. I love this Equals series, and this third book is about Russ' family visiting at Christmas. Filled with the real kind of stuff that most families face, this is a heartwarming look at all the baggage we carry with love and understanding. I loved reading this as a lot of it struck home for me.

    10. Recensione a cura di Victor per Feel The BookAspettavo questo romanzo da… SEMPRE! Mesi e mesi a fare mobbing con “Quando esce? Se esce, è MIO. Nessuno può recensire la ‘Equals’, è MIA”; e il maiuscolo è d’obbligo davanti a questa scrittrice. Io la amo, non posso farci niente. Questa serie è merito suo, ma è come una creatura che sto vedendo nascere e quindi posso solo rubare dei momenti bellissimi e tentare di descriverli in questa recensione.Sono particolarmente affezionato a [...]
