Blame It On The Mistletoe by Eli Easton

December 2, 2013


A Christmas novella

When physics grad student Fielding Monroe and skirt-chaser and football player Mick Colman become college housemates, they’re both in for a whole new education. Mick looks out for the absent-minded genius, and he helps Fielding clean up his appearance and discover all the silly pleasures his strict upbringing as a child prodigy denied him. They become best friends.

It’s all well and good until they run into a cheerleader who calls Mick the ‘best kisser on campus.’ Fielding has never been kissed, and he decides Mick and only Mick can teach him how it’s done. After all, the physics department’s Christmas party is coming up with its dreaded mistletoe. Fielding wants to impress his peers and look cool for once in his life. The thing about Fielding is, once he locks onto an idea, it’s almost impossible to get him to change his mind. And he just doesn’t understand why his straight best friend would have a problem providing a little demonstration.

Mick knows kissing is a dangerous game. If he gives in, it would take a miracle for the thing not to turn into a disaster. Then again, if the kissing lessons get out of hand they can always blame it on the mistletoe.

My Review: 

So what do you do when you go to bed smiling because of a story and you wake up with that same giddy feeling? You text your reading buddy and tell her she HAS to read this! You go to work and when your boss asks how your four day holiday weekend was you open your Nook and show her this cover and tell her you read the BEST, the CUTEST, the SWEETEST, the most ADORABLE story and if you can stop giggling and get the damn “It’s Cheese!” grin off your face you tell, no insist that she read this book…NOW!!!

Where or where do I begin? I fell for the cover, yeah; I totally judged a book by its cover but look at it! Can you blame me? I knew this was going to be good, the cover and the blurb were great and friends were already enjoying it. I hadn’t planned on starting this when I did but I had my phone and I was in need of something to lift my spirits and did Mick and Fielding ever do that!

It was time to admit defeat, to lay down my cards and concede the game.

I adored this story. I love the way it was told, I loved Mick and I need to have a green tea with him even though the Santa Sludge sounds sinfully sweet and good. Fielding…Oh. Em. Gee. That boy! How could I not fall head over heels for Fielding? Just the way he talked was endearing and his wanting a lesson in kissing from Mick? Good Grief; the way he asked, his justification for the act and his mind set…Fielding Monroe, I heart you something fierce.

Blame It On The Mistletoe was my first story from Eli Easton and I can tell you it will not be my last. This book, stories like this are what I love about Christmas time. I am on a roll with these books that make me believe in the season again. This was a wonderful addition to my holiday reading. I just want to read this over and over again it was that good. It was just…

It was so…fuck. And it was…damn.
