Emergency Contact was one of those books that bought an interesting array of mixed reviews upon its release. Despite the fact that I’m not a huge contemporary reader, picking up a YA contemporary every now and again for a lighter read feels very homey.

Merry Inkmas is a short, feel good holiday romance story following Bailey and Cash. Bailey is a strong willed, adorably nerdy and plus sized goddess working in a coffee shop whilst studying psychology.

When Cash enters her life, a bad boy with a heart of gold, she finds herself wondering if this beast might be her prince Charming.

Cash Evans is tattoo artist with a troubled childhood, and a very flirty customer of Bailey’s. He’s come a long way and amassed wealth from his skills as an artist, but this can’t fix the hole in his heart.

Full disclosure, I went into this book believing that it was fantasy romance. And I went solely into this book for that fact alone. I am a reader who loves romance in a fantasy context, and was so excited. Unfortunately, I found The Shattered Court to be an underwhelming instalment in the genre.
