Publisher's Summary

He’s the world’s most alpha Marine and the last man I should be letting jingle my bells this holiday season. 

So why does Clint O’Dell keep running through my thoughts wearing nothing but a Santa hat? And why do I stupidly agree that we should be Christmas friends with benefits? 

Someone must have spiked my eggnog. 
I don’t do Marines.
Or Santas.
I learned my lesson about both the hard way.

But when Clint steps in to rescue me - from a murderous goose, a rogue reindeer, and the ghost of Christmas Right Now causing trouble in my bakery - I can’t help but wonder if we’re meant to be more than friends. 

If maybe Clint is the holiday miracle I’ve been praying for...or if all the magic will disappear with the season. 

Humbugged is a laugh-out-loud holiday romp featuring a Marine with a heart of gold and a baker in need of a hero. Complete with the world's most awkward Christmas caroling, a photoshoot with furry friends, and more naughty baked goods than is good or decent.

Peppermint-flavored awesomeness!

I was waiting in the middle of the night when this was released and finished the same day. I just love all the quirky characters in Happy Cat! I lost count of all the times I snort laughed. Sweet, funny, and plenty of sexy things going on in Happy Cat! Definitely worth the credit!

One-way ticket to Happy Cat, please!

What a great way to wrap up 2019! Clint and Noelle's story was everything I hoped it would be, plus more I didn't realized I wanted. I've been waiting for Clint's story, and he may very well be my favorite O'Dell brother. I'll have to revisit the other guys before I confirm this statement. I'm in love w/them all!

Clint is that big tough meme-worthy Marine, with all the advertised toughness you'd expect. But he's also the sweetest, has such a huge heart, and is so protective of everyone, including Happy Cat's furry population. He and Noelle are made for each other, and I did some serious swooning, squirming, and laughing. This was such a great holiday story.

I always love visiting Happy Cat, with its wonderful array of animals and their quirky personalities. How could anyone not want to go there? Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose do a great job with the narration. Jacob is one of my top narrators!

Funny, Sexy, and worth the read

The town of Happy Cat and all the craziness!! This is a stand alone BUT you get to see all the characters from other books set in Happy Cat then add in Nutcracker the Goose, George the raccoon, and Don Juan the reindeer and you will be laughing out loud. Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose did a wonderful job of narrating all of the fun...and sexy moments. WORTH the credit.

I never knew I needed a goose with a lisp in my life...

I loved everything about this book! The writing is funny AND clever with down to earth and characters that are infinitely lovable. I couldn’t recommend it more!

Also...Jacob Morgan is everything. I’d sit for hours and listen to him read the contents of paint.

pretty good, but not my favorite

I was hoping to enjoy this book as much as the others, but it didn't quite do it for me. The narration was phenomenal and I did love the characters and was amused but it didn't make me laugh out loud like these books usually do.

By now, I’ve OD’d on the silliness

This is one of four short rom-coms starring the four O’Dell brothers in quirky Happy Cat, GA. These books are full of animal hijinks, sex-toy jokes, and super silly, would never happen in real life conflicts based on the world’s stupidest criminals. Bought on sale, these are fun little cream puffs. All four have the same two dual narrators, which is mostly awesome because, hello, sassy Virginia Rose and sexy Jacob Morgan! But, it did feel like all four couples sounded the same. I loved the humor, liked the romance, and found the nooky to be quick and vanilla (not cozy, just “meh”).

Hosed: Ryan and Cassie: Sexy firefighter meets syrupy sweet virgin in a Lucille Ball style opening as Cassie tries to run her sister’s sex-toy shop. The arson that gets between them is eye-rolling. Thank goodness for the animal hilarity with raccoon George Cooney! ⭐️⭐️

Hammered: Jace and Olivia Moonbeam: Fun, campy good time between a reformed bad boy turned bar owner and an animal loving flower child. There’s mama drama, Llama drama, hedgehog hijinks. and ducking texts.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hitched: Blake and Hope: The sex-toy bit fades but the animal hijinks doubles down as animal lover Hope needs to marry to save her rescues, particularly her Alpaca. The sparks at the beginning are way more fun than the HEA, but overall pretty good for a matinee listen. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Humbugged (this book): Clint and Noelle: Marine gets together with a baker by constantly rescuing her from bizarre emergencies. Whereas the first three couples interacted in each other’s books, Clint was mostly involved through texts and Noelle only enters the scene in this book, making this one feel a little “one of these books is not like the other.” The F-bombs felt way more overdone here. And, after four books, the silliness of the animal-gags and the absurdity of the crimes & conflicts got to be too much, like I overdosed on eye-rolls. “Sweet baby Jesus drooling in a manger” … this went from fun to awkweird. ⭐️⭐️

Fabulous

Just a wonderful book from start to finish. Narrator s were perfect I listened at work and got the looks from co workers when I led laugh out loud or snicker at something said. If you want a light funny love story listen to this so worth the money. Enjoy

Christmas shenanigans in Happy Cat

I love a good Christmas book and this one is not only good, it's silly and fun and the final one in the Happy Cat series. Brilliantly read too.

I really would like more, I wonder what it'd take to encourage Lily and Pippa to revisit Happy Cat.

What a rollercoaster

Definitely not to be missed. I could wax lyrical about this story but I wouldn't do it justice. The whole O'Dell family and their wild, weird and wonderful pets make this a fabulous romcom that will leave you in stitches. Thanks Pippa and Lili for this whole series. The narrators did an amazing job of bringing all the characters to life ~ well done Virginia and Jacob. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
