shocking exposé her boss Damion Ward the arrogant and undeniably sexy CEO But after Damion invites her to help him plan a Thanksgiving charity event Kali begins to see another side of the man And when she surrenders to the exhilarating tension simmering between them Kali hopes her story will have a happy ending SNOWFALL by Mary Ann Rivers Jenny Wright can’t get enough of her erotic conversations with someone she knows only as “C” Flirting online helps Jenny temporarily escape confronting the changes to her life as she slowly loses her vision Jenny’s occupational therapist Evan Carlisle Ford is helping her prepare for the challenges ahead but the fo Originally reviewed here AngievilleLast year I read my very first ever Christmas novellas and shocked myself at how much I enjoyed them I mean I read a few duds sure but I read some real gems as well And so a couple of weeks ago I found myself eagerly looking forward to rereading a couple of my favorites this holiday season as well as hopefully discovering a few new ones Happily the very first new one I read proved to be a home run I kind of knew it would be given how much I loved Mary Ann Rivers' debut novella The Story Guy earlier this year When I heard her next book was a Christmas novella in the HEATING UP THE HOLIDAYS anthology I snatched it up the day it released and snuggled up with my Nook for a little pre holiday reading I hadn't read any works by the other two authors in the collection I actually still haven't read their contributions though I plan on it at some point but I can tell you the ebook bundle is utterly worth it for Rivers' story aloneJenny Wright was diagnosed right at the most inopportune of times right after she uprooted her life entirely moved halfway across the country and started a new job in a new place And even after being diagnosed with a rare degenerative eye disease she chose to stay in her new life Even though her mother begged her to come back home where she could look after her Even though her colleagues walked a little cautiously around her And even as the days grew shorter and the darkness crept in The one bright point in those days is the time after she gets home from work and settles in on the couch with her computer That's when she gets to chat with C Though they've never actually met he used to live in the house she currently rents And when she forwarded a piece of mail on to him they struck up an online relationship C is a macro photographer Most days the two of them talk about his pictures her thoughts anything they like Though their interactions grow intimate Jenny knows she can't handle She has enough on her plate navigating her work her occupational therapy and just getting through each day intact When her worlds collide she is wholly unprepared for the falloutI think my best bet is to keep still and let the snow fall let the days get long again the light return its hours to me a few chances a day to figure out what it is I can comfortably keep in front of me and seeFor me there isn't some miracle cure this is my life or my disease will progress and my life will change focus again and I'll have another new lifeI need C to stay right where he is now because for now I don't know enough to move from where I amMy hypothesis is that the light will come back both outside and inside meI'm afraid and angry but the light is a theory I want to proveUntil then I just have to keep the experiment going with as many controls as possibleOne bus back and forthOne storeOne man his words under glassYes I just knew Ms Rivers would bring her words And how beautifully they were voiced through Jenny I really loved her you guys My throat constricted on her behalf from moment to moment And though I cannot fathom the terror she lived with each day I know enough of fear to swallow hard at every one of her ruminations on the encroaching darkness What I love most about Mary Ann Rivers' stories is how with one hand she keeps a ruthless stranglehold on false hope and with the other she offers the most delicate of joys I feel both rational and enchanted when I read them Her writing does not reuire that I sacrifice either And so I love it Which is good because she brings the sadness and no mistake Because Jenny's condition is not sugar coated I worried about getting my hopes up for her future in general terms as well as with the man in her life I worried a lot for a single novella But I loved every page And there were as there should be lovely startling flares of humor as wellI wonder if he practices making awkward and nerdy look sort of cool Like he fills his house with furniture that is the wrong scale for his tall body and buys plaid shirts in bulk and tells his barber to leave crazy too long pieces of hair mixed in with the regularly cut hair so everything always looks messyThen he runs his hands through his hair and puts on his plaid shirts and uses mirrors to watch himself sit in uncomfortable furniture until comfortable furniture looks like it's the one with the problemI loved him in the same way Jenny did Uncertainly Desperately In awkward pieces and with a number of reservations Neither of them faced easy choices and the untenable nature of their situation gave me pause than once But as the snow fell how my love grew When I think about reading SNOWFALL I picture it in soft black and white with the occasional flash of color in the threads of his plaid shirt in the string of Christmas lights hung with the fierceness of hope for light in the coming year
