#CountdownToChristmas: Winter Secrets by M. Limoges & Love:Uncivilized by Sawyer Bennett

Soooo two reviews today! Both are continuation novellas for couples that have already found each other. I've totally been loving those lately and seeing how things are going after the HEA.

Winter Secrets (Winter Solstice Run #3) by M. Limoges

The perfect para treat for a cold winter morning! Winter Secrets jumps in a couple months after Kate and Stephen mated and they've hit a bit of a rough spot with secrets with insecurities rearing their ugly heads and threatening to tear them apart. And, whew, things do blow up. Sending them into a spiral of angsty hurt and trying to figure out what to do next.

I really liked both Kate and Stephen and wanted so much for them to spit out what they were thinking and feeling. It takes them a bit but the make up is worth the struggles. *dreamy sigh* A touch of Christmas, the mending of hearts and hints of future romances made for an entertaining escape. Limoges gives good novella. *nods*

Patience is a virtue…a lesson Stephen Dorsett has learned over the years, wooing his mate. He loves the prickly woman with all his heart, but he’s keeping a secret from her—one that will soon change the entire dynamic of their relationship.

Kate Matthews has a secret of her own, but she’s reluctant to share her surprise with Stephen. With her mate spending too many long hours and late nights at work recently, Kate begins to second-guess Stephen’s commitment to her.

One simple misunderstanding, fueled by insecurities and doubts, is all it takes to throw Kate and Stephen off course. Will they allow their secrets to pull them apart, or make their love stronger?

Love (Uncivilized #1.5) by Sawyer Bennet

Yuuuum! Love: Uncivilized was a quickie novella and one I totally devoured (instead of mowing the lawn this afternoon). I loved catching up with Moira and Zach, It's been 8+ years since they met and he left the only life he'd known--the wild jungles of the Amazon--to be with Moira. They're married. They have kids. Careers. And bumps along the way as they try to balance it all and not lose the passion and connection that brought them together so many years earlier. Even when they're struggling like hell...I'm totally with these two.

This one isn't a fluffy Christmas read but I still loved it. These two are having a hard go of things. Feeling neglected and hurt because of each other's busy schedules. I loved seeing them work it out though. Pulling each other out of their funks and trying to make things work again. And gah the ending totally made me cry. Zach and his alpha male self totally pulled it out and got it right. There's some yummy sex and some sweet moments mixed in too. This one is definitely for those who have read book one, Uncivilized. I wouldn't suggest reading it as a stand alone. Definitely need to know these two and what they've been through for the full impact. 
How did things ever get to be so difficult?

Nearly eight years of marriage. 
Two kids. 
Hectic careers and major life choices. 

Throw in sexual frustration, doubts, insecurities and one wild man not completely tamed by society, and you have a Christmas that’s bound to get out of control. Zacharias Easton will show you just how uncivilized love can be.

** Love: Uncivilized is a follow up novella to the book, Uncivilized. While it can be read as a stand alone, it is best appreciated after having read Uncivilized first.
