Product Description

Christmas isn’t the same anymore for Lara Hollywell, not since she lost her greatest gift of all, her fiancé. Now, she spends her holidays with family remembering Christmases past and contemplating a life without love, a life where only dreams and fantasies keep her company.
Blake Snowden is tired of being seen as nothing more than the man with deep pockets and a handsome face. He wants romantic walks, snuggling by the fireplace and kisses under the mistletoe. And he wants it all with his beautiful Head of Marketing, Lara.
When Blake rigs the company’s annual secret Santa draw to get Lara’s name, will they both discover more than the perfect gift in their stockings on Christmas morning?

4.0 out of 5 stars I wish there was more Blake and Lara! It ended way to soon! 10 November 2015
By Tiffany Thompson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story line was great. Lara - still suffering from the loss of the love of her life- is given he boss Blake as secret santa for their office Chirstmas party. Little does she know the secret santa is rigged.

Will Lara let go of her past to move on to her future? Will Blake get the one thing he truly wants for Christmas?

This is a very short story. It is very well written and keeps you interested until the very last word. I wish there was more Blake and Lara! It ended way to soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars I was hooked on this fantastic little read after the first sentence 17 November 2015
By The Cosy Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A gorgeous novella that I wish was longer!
I was hooked on this fantastic little read after the first sentence. I always expected great things from EJ Shortall and she hasn’t disappointed at all.
Lara and Blake are both loveable characters that deserve all the love and happiness in the world. The chemistry between them burns through the page (or kindle screen!) and I quite literally wish I was Lara!
Despite it being a novella, I cried, laughed, wanted to throw my kindle when the characters weren’t listening to me!
For only 99p you’d be crazy to miss out on the most romantic, sweetest, beautiful Christmas novellas this year.
(EJ Shortall can we have a full length book for these two please?!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and Sweet 7 November 2015

Format: Kindle Edition
My Perfect Gift by EJ Shortall

I love reading anything that has to do with Christmas. I love the whole cozy feeling it gives you. Reminds you of the perfect holiday Hallmark channel movies. My Perfect Gift was just like that. Short and sweet. Lara losing her love and having to live life thinking she will never find someone.

I really try to skip short books like this one, I'm always left unsatisfied. My Perfect Gift thankfully didn't make me feel that way. I would love more of that sexy Blake but I'm happy with how it ended.

If you want a short and satisfying read, one click this one. EJ Shortall never disappoints. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars he has no clue what would her perfect gift to be 30 November 2015
By Cranky - The Book Curmudgeon - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Blake Snowden and Lara Hollywell have worked together for several years, each having secret desires for the other but keeping them a secret. Finally deciding to take a chance, Blake rigs the Secret Santa exchange this year so that he has Lara’s name and she has his. Now that he has her name, he has no clue what would her perfect gift to be.
Lara has never cared for the company's’ Secret Santa exchange and is often referred to as the Bah Humbug of the company. She can’t believe her luck in that over the three hundred people in the company she gets Blake’s name, the VP. Sure she has had her fantasies about what she would love to give him but she is just not ready to move forward. Losing her fiancé destroyed her, she can’t move past that loss even seven years later.
As short as this book was, the author did a great job in having a range of emotions. From the one scene where Blake takes her to the fair, there are laughs as a game is played, tears when on the big wheel, to smiles when they were fighting over the candy floss. Then there was the ah how sweet moments when Blake would offer Lara his scarf or coat because she was never dressed for the cold weather and even when he cleared the snow from her car. You could feel the connection the characters had and I’m really hoping that we will get a full length novel as they have so much more of a story to be told. There was one part of the story that I felt was a little choppy when they were at the ice skating rink with the nieces. It could have been that I was reading an advanced reader copy but it didn’t flow smoothly. Even with the time they were at the park and skating rink, the connection and fun the four of them were having had me feeling like I was there watching it all, I can see that snowball missing Lara to hit the tree she was standing under and the snow falling down to cover her. I was laughing right along with Blake.
This novella had a lot to the story, with great supporting characters. I will be reading more from this author and again, I am hoping that we will have more of Blake and Lara’s story.

4.0 out of 5 stars lovely sweet read 11 November 2015
By Philomena(Cheekypee) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I rarely read Christmas books this early but I'm glad I read this little gem. Although this is just over a hundred pages I found it to be a lovely, warm and full story.

Blake is Lara's boss. He doesn't know much about her but he does know he wants to get to know her more. Lara feels attracted to Blake however her past is holding her back.

What happens when the magic of Christmas gets involved??

I really enjoyed this Christmas gem. Looking forward to reading more of this authors work.
