Santa Baby!

What a great Christmas Novella! Smoke and Maggie together is so natural. It’s a great read to get you hooked and on the edge of your seat to see where they will end up down the road. And let’s not forget about little Mateo and how he wraps Smoke around his finger in one night. A great listen, Samantha Brentmoor andLance Greenfield did an amazing job!

Quick Listen

This was the perfect story to listen to during a short, holiday ride. The cadence of both narrators was perfect. I want more.

Pointless story and inappropriate narrator

This story is nearly over before it begins. The characters could be interesting if they were developed more, but the book is so short that this doesn't happen.

The narration is unsuitable in that the characters are all supposed to have either Amer-Italian or Hispanic accents, and neither one is attempted. I'm not sure that a good narrator would have saved the overall quality, so maybe it's no loss.

Don't pay full price for this one -- I'm glad I got it on Audible Escape!

Great Read

Santa Baby: A Carelli Family Christmas Novella was a great read by Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler. It is a really great holiday story about Smoke and Maggie. Smoke finds Maggie stranded on the side of the road with her infant son, Mateo. I really enjoyed their steamy connection in this great novella. I loved Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield's narration of these great characters. I can't wait to read more by Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler.

Yay for Christmas books!

I love Christmas books!! Maggie is a single mom trying to provide for her baby when life just goes wrong around her. Smoke is the hero of the story, who finds her and helps her. Maggie and Mateo join the Carelli family for dinner and Smoke lets them stay at his place for the night due to the weather. The book ends without a relationship but with knowing that things are looking up for Maggie and baby M.

Great holiday listen!

Introduction to the Carelli Family and looking forward for more of them.

Short, sweet, have simple plot and interesting but left me wanting more. I still have so many questions in my mind that want some answers.

Lance and Samantha are so great with narrating this, so perfect for Smoke and Maggie's character.

Sweet and Hot... prefect for a winter night!

I just adored these two and could have listened to hours more of this story! I was routing for Maggie since the first word! There are just some people you wish good things upon, she deserved them! Smoke was the perfect man to come to her rescue! Lance Greenfield and Samantha Brentmoor did a fantastic job narrating this fun and sexy book!

Good people are still out there.

This was an excellent book of humanity. Young single struggling mother gets lost in a snow storm. She couldn’t have asked for a better family to find her and help her. Great narration and great characters. I recommend this book.

I need a dentist

This was so sweet I think I need a dentist. For a novella the characters were well developed and interesting, it was a nice medium burn they didn’t fall into insta love but it was as quick as you would expect with a novella.

Definitely has left me wanting to know more about this amazing couple. I loved it

4 stars

I really enjoyed this quick, holiday Christmas read. It turns out this is just the beginning of Smoke, Maggie and baby Mateo's story. Oh I have theories of what might come about. Looking forward to it!

Lance and Samantha did a great job narrating.

Sweet and hot!

Santa Baby is a sweet & hot insta love holiday novella. It is set in the Carelli world, but can be read as a standalone. I’m actually not familiar with this series but loved this story and definitely plan to read more.

“...you’re about to witness a Carelli Christmas. You might prefer freezing in your car to my crazy family.”

I loved listening to this story on audiobook. It was a bit like having a Halmark Christmas movie ears!
