A Holiday to Sustain Us (The Magi Accounts Companion Novellas) by Michele Notaro

A holiday to Sustain Us is a phenomenal holiday romance. Fun banter, pets, kids and a found family make this a heartwarming holiday story.

From the blurb:

One kiss under the mistletoe and now I’m hooked. I can’t get him out of my head… and I think I might like it.

Convincing my pride to have a holiday celebration was supposed to be a fun way to bring everyone together. But my plan went awry when my younger pride mate convinced everyone I needed a kiss. I hadn’t expected Ash to volunteer. And I certainly hadn’t expected him to kiss me on the lips and… linger.

Now, all I can think about is feeling his lips on mine again. Instead of planning gift giving and parties, I’m planning how to win Ash over. And what better way to convince him to spend time with me than to have him help me with my holiday plans?

The holidays are coming to the Ono-Nai house, and I only have one thing I’m wishing for this year—Ash.

A Holiday To Sustain Us is a fun 70K word MM urban fantasy companion story meant to be read AFTER A Purpose That Restores Us (The Magi Accounts 3). It’s from Charlie's perspective and takes place between books 3 and 4 of the main series. This is a companion novel, NOT a standalone.

Janet's Review:

A Holiday to Sustain Us is a phenomenal read. Definitely not a standalone, you must read the series in order to fully enjoy this wonder Holiday story!! 

A Holiday to Sustain Us hooked me and wouldn’t let me put it down. I have been waiting for Charlie to get his mate. He’s such a fun character to read. Ash was perfect for him. They were so sweet together and their banter was fun to read. I loved Charlie’s enthusiasm for the holiday, put me in the spirit! I freakin loved Charlie’s POV, his thoughts were so much fun. His zest for life! I loved everything about this story, left me with a smile. 

Overall, a fantastic addition to the series. I cannot wait for more in this world the author has created. Well written with addicting pacing!

SNik's Review:

Companion novel (The Magi Accounts), must be read in order. Hurt/comfort. Found family. Slow burn. Single POV. 

A perfectly dreamy holiday story for shifter Charlie Ono-Nai and Ash, the mage he has a crush on. Charlie is gearing up for the holidays, wanting to celebrate with all his new pride mates, including the beautiful and haunted Ash. Charlie and Ash are absolutely sweet together. 

This book is very much low angst in comparison to the main series and a really cute story about Charlie and Ash building a relationship and falling for each other. Readers get to see the Ono-Nai pride from Charlie's perspective and how the found family overall is caring and generous. 

Very much a fun holiday story for the series with a fantastic HEA epilogue.
