Holly, North Carolina--where it's Christmas year-round and miracles can happen. A good thing for the O'Connor family--four local siblings, four sexy stories, four unique journeys to happily ever after.

Merry Christmas, Baby:

Legal guardian for her sister, Nora broke her no-romance rule for Jackson, but when he does something she can't easily forgive, he'll have to prove a second chance, and her heart, are worth the risk.

Tease Me, Baby:

Reluctantly leaving town to fulfill an obligation, Fallon can't let her desire for Brad derail her plans. But the sexy sheriff is determined to prove she's already right where she belongs...in his arms.

It's Me Again, Baby:

When his new realtor turns out to be "the one who got away," Maguire knows a second chance with Samantha is within reach...if he can save her from the menace who followed her home.

Mistletoe Me, Baby:

Nolan already wants Miranda, so playing her fake fiancé is no hardship. Convincing her family--and the whole town--is easy. Convincing Miranda, especially after tragedy strikes, proves far harder.

5 Star review of O’Connor Family Series Collection (O’Connor Family #1-4) by Katie Reus This was a new author to me and why that is so, I do not know. I absolutely adored the O’Connor Family Series Collection about the O’Connors of Holly, NC where Christmas is year round. The writing was strong in all four books and honestly, once I started I couldn’t put this book down. The characters and story lines were well developed and I fell for this family hard and fast. I enjoyed these books so much that I went and purchased the audible edition as well. One click now you won’t be disappointed. Merry Christmas, Baby: It’s my most favourite time of the year, add in romance and I am hooked to be sure. When friends' become lovers it is sure to muddy the waters and that is what happens to Nora and Jackson. After an unforgettable night Nora is flying high, that is until Jackson ignores her for 3 weeks. Now he is back and wants to pick up where they left off but Nora is determined that this is not going to happen. She is hurt by the distance that Jackson created and it is up to him to do some serious apologising. It appears that everyone wants Nora and Jackson together and there were numerous occasions where I found myself laughing out loud. The chemistry between Nora and Jackson sizzles and I loved the banter as these two friends finally came together. I also loved the relationship that Nora has with her sister. Tease Me, Baby: The second book is all about Fallon O’Connor, a pastry chef and Brad Fulton, Holly’s town sheriff . This was a fun quick read. Although Fallon is leaving Holly for culinary school, Brad is bound and determined to have her. Again the chemistry between these two was electrifying and I found myself smiling throughout this story. Above all else Tease Me Baby, is about following your dreams and opening yourself up to love. Fallon is a strong and determined It’s Me Again, Baby: This is a second chance at love story about Maguire and Samantha. There was intrigue and suspense as it was a great read. Sam left Maguire with no explanation and after getting out of the service he returns home and buries himself in work. When he looks for a house, his mother sets him up with a realtor who turns out to be Sam. Maguire is reeling from the shock but is determined that face has given him a second chance and it is up to him to take it. But can Sam and Maguire move on from their past? Mistletoe Me, Baby: The final book and is Nolan and Miranda story who are best friends although Nolan has wanted more for quite a while. However she is guardian to her nephew and does not feel she has time for a relationship. Trying to keep her parents off her back she tells them she is engaged. Shocked to learn that her parents have decided to visit her for Christmas, she turns to Nolan to play the part of her fiance. Nolan leaps at the chance as he is sure that he can get her to give him a chance once she gets past her initial fears. When tragedy strikes, will this bring them together or tear them apart? I fell hard and fast for Nolan, he is an alpha and totally dreamy.

Jackson, Fallon, Maguire, and Nolan O'Connor's stories are all standalone reads, and do connect as some of the siblings will appear in each other's story. This collection makes it easy to have them all in one book. They are all fun, sweet, and sexy stories of each O'Connor finding a HEA, all in a place where you find Christmas year around, Holly, N.C. Heartwarming stories with a bit of angst and drama, this is a collection not to be missed. I would like to thank NetGalley and K.R. Press for gifting me the "O'Connor Family Series Collection for a fair and honest review.

I have definitely fallen in love with the O'Connors after reading the 4 novella length stories included in this collection. Each one of these stories will warm your heart and make you swoon. Everyone should grab a copy of this collection and enjoy this incredible family and the wonderful little town of Holly, NC. Merry Christmas, Baby - A wonderful friends to lovers story. After Jackson disappears on her, Nora knows she should have stuck to her no romance rule with him. Now Jackson's back trying to explain but Nora's having none of it. Tease Me, Baby - Fallon has been crushing on the town sheriff forever but it takes the news that she's leaving town for him to finally make his move. Has Brad waited too long or can he convince her to stay? It's Me Again, Baby - In this story Maguire and Samantha find a second chance at love after they finally deal with the past and learn that the thing that broke them apart was a lie. Mistletoe Me, Baby - This is another friends to lovers story - sorta. Nolan has loved Miranda for a long time but she's always kept him in the friend zone. Now she asks him to pose as her fake fiance. He agrees and comes up with a plan to show her how things could be if she'd just give them a chance.

THE O'CONNOR FAMILY SERIES By Katie Reus I loved this series! This book has four short stories. The stories are about the O'Connor siblings and their significant others and their paths to finding happiness with each other. These take place in a Christmas town called Holly. The 1st book is Merry Christmas Baby and brings the story of Nora and Jackson. Friends that decide to see if there is more, then Jackson takes off for 3 weeks without a word, but realizes she is hurt and feels betrayed. Let the groveling commence.... The 2nd book is Tease Me Baby and brings the story of Fallon and Brad. She is a pastry chef and he is the sheriff of the town. The 3rd book is Its Me Again Baby and brings the story of Samantha and Maguire. This is a second chance book. They had a relationship and Maguire who was a navy seal had to deploy and she broke off the relationship when he was gone. He inadvertently hired her as a realtor and they have a time of it. The 4th book is Mistletoe Me Baby about Miranda and Nolan. This story has Miranda talking Nolan into being her fiance to show her parents that her story of being engaged is real. He readily agrees. Katie Reus always has well developed characters and story lines. She has a real gift at making you care about her characters. This was an engaging read as Jackson, Nolan, Fallon and Maguire are siblings. I really enjoy books that continue with characters you have met in previous stories.

The is the full series of the O'Connor family. Each book can be read as a standalone but they are all interconnected. Book 1 is about Nora and Jackson. Nora has moved to Holly after inheriting a book store from her great Aunt. She believes it is the perfect place for her little sister to finish school and become an adult. Her and Jackson become friends before she lets him talk her into something more, only to have it blow up in her face afterwards. Jackson grew up in Holly and only left for the military before coming home once his time was up. He panicked when he realized that Nora was the only one for him and made a huge mistake. Now he has to try to get her to not only to understand but to forgive him and let him in her life again. I really loved Nora and Jackson together. They have chemistry but they also genuinely like each other. Even after Jackson has a dumb moment, Nora is strong enough to forgive him and still understand that she truly does know him and can trust him. Perfect way to start this series. Book 2 is about Fallon and Brad. Brad is the sheriff for Holly and seems to always be the "boy scout" whereas Fallon feels like she can be a troublemaker. Throwing these two together right before Fallon is making a major change in her life might just break them both. I absolutely love Fallon!! She cracks me up from the get go with her attitude and just her love of life! Her and Brad have over the top chemistry and make every second of this read well worth it! Loved it! Book 3 is about Maguire and Sam. They have a history together but have now been thrown together again. But can either one move on from the past and embrace this second chance? I was really surprised with how much I liked this one. At first I was prepared to not like either character until you realize exactly what happened in the past and understand that it wasn't all their fault. Once they move past all of that, they have a great relationship and I love how they interact with each other. Book 4 is about Nolan and Miranda. They are best friends although Nolan has wanted to be more than friends for months. Miranda has told her parents she is engaged to try to get them off her back about dating while she is taking care of her nephew. Now her parents are coming to visit for Christmas and she has to come up with the fake fiance for them. Which entails asking Nolan to do it for her and Nolan coming up with the idea of showing her that he may be playing the fake fiance for her parents but his feelings are anything but fake! This was a quick, cute read! As a Katie Reus book you know it's going to be good and it definitely was! I just wish it had been longer. Miranda is a sweet woman who is handling such horrible things with a strength of character that you can't help but admire. Nolan is a sweet man who is always there for friends and family but he knows that he wants and needs more from Miranda and is determined to show her what they could have. It really is a good read, just too short in my opinion! This is such a great series and I love the fact that now you can get all of them in one book! Definitely well worth it to read them all!

These are a re-read for me because I read all of them when they were published individually. I'm in love with this series. I adore over protective, possessive Alpha's who are not jerks and this author never fails me. Each book in the series are on the shorter side, but I never feel like it's not enough. Each book is set in the small town of Holly and since we see all the same characters, it's like an ongoing story and yet you can easily read each book as a standalone. Merry Christmas, Baby There is some groveling by the Hero since he freaked out when he realized Nora was "it" for him and didn't contact her for 3 weeks. I didn't love that part but that's where our story begins, with him pursuing her to get her back and boy does he make up for those 3 weeks! Tease Me, Baby There is just something about a man in uniform! Our couple is Brad, the sheriff of the town of Holly and Fallon O'Connor, little sister to Jackson from book 1. I really liked Fallon's character but I'm all about my alphas. Brad was such a sweet combination of the all American, good guy and intense Alpha. I couldn't have asked for a better Hero. The small town setting was comical along with the big brothers interference. Short, but hot and sweet read! It's Me Again, Baby This one is a second chance romance. Not my favorite trope because I don't like it when couples walk away from each other, but turns out the split for these two was a huge misunderstanding. The author doesn't take long revealing said misunderstanding and has these two making up for lost time. Mistletoe Me, Baby I was a bit worried the author was changing things up with this book when I found out Nolan and Miranda are only friends at first. I never should have doubted, once Nolan found his opening to stake his claim, Miranda didn’t know what hit her. My favorite part of this book was when tragedy struck. We truly got to see how much he loved Miranda and how he took care of her even when she pushed him away. I fell pretty hard for Nolan.

I have read every single book in this set and it is truly a wonderful for the new reader to get them all at one time. Romance galore and just wonderful stories. Merry Christmas, Baby Nora owns the bookstore in Holly and she really has not let a man in to her life in a very long time. The one time she did was with Jackson who took her out once and that was it. It left her angry to say the least. Well now, he walks back into her store and expects her to just drop all for him. Nora and Jackson have been good friends and she allowed it to step across that line but not that far. Jackson comes clean with Nora about why he vanished but can she forgive him? First, they need to figure out who is breaking into the bookstore. Sweet, Romantic and such as Holly, NC dreams can come true. Tease Me, Baby This was a short but sweet story. Fallon and Brad know of each other, have wanted each other and after an explosive Christmas kiss they are determined to have each other. With the help of a few family friends this couple takes things to the next level. Can the Boy Scout win the girl? Dreams can be achieved by never leaving where you are. I really enjoyed this very sexy read. Fallon and Brad are a cute couple. It's Me Again, Baby Second Chances can sometimes be sweeter than the first time around. Samantha had thought for a few years that Maguire simply had more than one woman. Well when he shows up to look at house he gets a shock to see the woman he has waited for is none other than his realtor. Does the fire still burn between these two? Well grab your copy and find out. The town of Holly is one heck of a sweet place to live. Another fantastic romance in this series. Mistletoe Me, Baby Miranda and Nolan are best friends so it's not a big deal when she has to come up with a fiance short notice so her family will get off her back. Nolan has always loved Miranda much more than a friend but he has never made a move until now. And although she is thinking fake umm nope this sexy man has it all figured out. The O'Connors are one big loving family and I just love Momma O'Connor. I am sure you could read this without the prior books but I would recommend you begin with book 1 and enjoy each one.

MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY - This was a very sweet novella , and the beginning of Ms Reus series titled, O’Connor Family. Perfect for the holiday season, or anytime you want a lift me up story. I have to confess that I stay away from novellas, since the majority provide very little plot. Only a talented author like Ms Reus can give you a well developed plot and characters that make you feel like you know them personally by the time you finish the story. Even the secondary characters are interesting enough that you can see more stories coming our way. In this one, we have Nora, a bookstore owner and recent resident of Holly , NC . She inherited the store and has moved to Holly with her sister. A teenager she adores and has been her legal guardian for a few years. Dating and love are not in her immediate plans but former SEAL Jackson O’Connor just might be the one to break that plan. He does something that almost ruined a chance with Nora, but it’s the Christmas season and who knows, a HEA might be in the future. TEASE ME BABY - This time it’s Fallon’s story. She is a pastry chef with dreams of owning a food truck but also feels she has to fullfill her family’s expectations of going to culinary school. Her indecision gets more complicated when Sheriff Brad Fulton makes it clear he wants a relationship with her. These two are adorable and you just want them have a chance. Fallon has to decide what she truly wants to do with her life. Will that include Brad, who is willing to do anything for her, or will it be a life away from Holly, NC and thus away from Brad? Once again, this talented author manages to give us in this novella, a well develop plot and complex characters. Not an easy feat to accomplish in just a few pages. IT'S ME AGAIN BABY - This time it’s Maguire O’Connor’s story. A former SEAL and now a successful auto restoration/repair businessman, he hasn’t forgotten the woman that three years ago broke his heart right before he went off to his last deployment. That gal , is Samantha (Sam) . She is back and is the new realtor in town. They meet again when he’s in search of a new home and his mother recommended “Sam”. Macguire thinking all along it was a man . It was sweet to see them together ,especially after they realize that misunderstanding and false information was the cause of their breakup. But just when things seem to be going well, someone from her past wants her dead. This story was a little edgier than the previous two, but also very classic Katie Reus, which is a VERY good thing. A story filled with suspense, forgiveness, second chances, the town of Holly , the O’Connor family and of course , romance. A story worth your time. MISTLETOE ME BABY - The story centers around Miranda Flores and Nolan O’Connor. She recently moved to Holly, NC from Florida looking for a change and a new beginning now that she is the guardian of her 11 year old nephew. A boy whose Mom’s addiction is destroying her. Since they met 10 months ago. Nolan and Miranda have developed a friendship, neither revealing their true feelings for the other. But when Miranda’s parents make a surprise visit to Holly, NC, Nolan becomes her “fake” boyfriend. Things get complicated and tragedy occurs. Will they be able to overcome the obstacles presented or will they miss their HEA? Only a talented author can compact in a novella a well developed and complex plot line, as well as interesting characters. She not only manages to give us a romance, but she also delves on the

#1 Merry Christmas, Baby: I originally read this story as part of a box set and takes place in Holly NC where it's forever Christmas. That was my favorite box set ever! This story is about Nora who owns Nora's Books and Brew who's raising her younger sister and gets a second chance with the town's former Navy SEAL Jackson O'Connor. There is a surprising amount of suspense and mystery in this short story. Besides the fact I adore second chance stories and former Navy SEALs. #2 Tease Me, Baby: The chemistry between this two crackles. Both Brad "the boy scout" Sheriff of Holly NC, and pastry chef Fallon O'Connor, find the attraction is too much to run from. Fallon is leaving in 2 weeks for culinary school across the country and has been avoiding Brad since they shared a heated kiss at the Christmas party. Brad retired from the military a year ago and returned home becoming Sheriff. Fallon O'Connor is an "experience taught" pastry chef about to leave for culinary school across the country thinking she needs a degree to be on even footing with her successful brothers. It's now Valentine's Day and leaving in 2 weeks for school. Brad's done waiting, he's ready to settle down and knows Fallon is the one. This is a lovely story of stolen kisses, heated desire and finding you can't run from the real thing. #3 It's Me Again, Baby: I adore second-chance stories. This is a good example. The chemistry between these two is HOT! They can't keep their hands off each other...yum. I love these continuing stories about Holly North Carolina where it's always Christmas. Maguire O'Connor and Sam, a home-town girl returning. Three years ago they shared a "insta-hot" love affair. No home and realizing their break up was over a lie a vindictive girl told Sam, all is forgiven because the chemistry is still there. They have both grown up, experienced life and it's time to get real with their relationship. As Sam has a stalker who's followed her home from Oregon, it's a good thing Maguire is a former SEAL who can protect her and help the police catch him. #4 Mistletoe Me, Baby: Nolan O'Connor is in love with his best friend Miranda Flores that we've met in earlier stories. Miranda is just 10 months new to Holly and loves it. She left Florida to distance her from her manipulative family who nit-picks everything. She's found herself with the guardianship of her 10 year old nephew, Mateo, while her older sister, Gloria is in rehab. Hopefully it takes this time even though Miranda loves having Mateo. She told Nolan she wasn't interested in relationships with getting Mateo and herself settled into Holly. Nolan has holding her in the best friend category gritting his teeth the whole time. Miranda's parents decide to make an unexpected visit to Holly and now she's got to ask Nolan to pretend to be her fiance while her parents are in town. He jumps at the chance! And so Miranda's confusion and struggle begins when she finds he's all in. Crisis hits and Nolan is there fore her. She finds love and a relationship are not really that hard to handle at all.
