Big Mike and Minnie - Cooked Goose by Susan Amanda Kellly

About the Book:

Mistletoe mayhem! Cooked Goose is a hilarious holiday love story filled with sizzle, sugar, and sass...
“Your father called me. He invited me for Christmas. I have a ticket for the same flight as you. Tonight.” 
With those words, Big Mike sucked the oxygen out of the room. Minnie intended her father would meet her new man, Big Mike… eventually. Minnie wanted to give Daddy time to get used to the idea that his 'little girl' is embroiled in a serious relationship. A few decades, perhaps. Because Daddy’s not your run-of-the-mill protective father - he's a criminal. But now Minnie is heading home for the holidays with Big Mike in tow. 
Big Mike is no delicate violet. He’s quiet and lethal, an ex-Special Forces soldier whose day job involves ‘keeping the Free World safe’. But Big Mike doesn’t want to spoil Minnie’s Christmas and promises not to hurt anyone… His resolve will be tested by Minnie’s father, her psycho brother and three outlaw lieutenants who want his woman. 

*This is a 12,000 word story packed with everything needed for a very merry Christmas: love, family, laughter and psychos.

My Thoughts:

This was an extremely short story and I'm not even sure I would describe it as a novella it was so short.  It seemed a bit silly and I had a difficult time relating to any of the characters, but it did give me a few quick chuckles.  The author seems to have a good sense of humor, but I'd like to see a bit more depth.  At the time I read this, I didn't realize it was not the first in the series.  Perhaps if I had read Book 1 it would have been more enjoyable for me.  For that reason I am giving this four wine glasses instead of three.

A copy of a digital version of this book was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
