**I totally missed the boat on this blog tour! I had a recent death in the family and so had to put it off for a few days and then I thought I had scheduled it to publish and just realized today that it never did! So even though the tour is over I still wanted to put it up.

Genre: Clean Holiday Romances
Novellas are very different reading for to me. I sometimes feel like the characters do not have as much time to grow and develop as they do in regular length novels. However, I do like how the stories are not drawn out and how the author can get right to the point. Fortunately, the cute romances in the All I Want collection fall into the latter category. Each of the stories had distinct characters and their stories felt complete.
Another positive feature of having separate short stories is that you can get a number of different perspectives from each of the authors. I especially enjoyed the unique voices of each author in All I Want and how each of the stories was so different.
All I Want was also unique in that it was a compilation of Christmas themed stories. Christmas is such a romantic holiday and I feel like each of these sweet stories captured that feeling. The "Six Days of Christmas" especially seemed to portray that magical holiday sentiment with the special holiday traditions that Natalie and Jimmy were able to participate in.
My favorite romance of the three stories was between Natalie and Jimmy in the "Six Days of Christmas" story. I love relationships that begin with friendships, especially ones that are "long lost". I also liked the playful nature of their relationship and how Jimmy seemed to bring out Natalie's fun side. The other romances were sweet as well but this one was definitely my favorite.
Overall, All I Want is a perfect collection of short stories for this magical and romantic time of year!
