    This was a great short Christmas read and also what felt like an introduction to the Carelli Family. This is my first book by either author and I really did enjoy the style and the story, looking forward to more from this series. Maggie is a single mother working as an waitress in a local diner, not having a babysitter or any real support especially from the her ex and father of her six month old Mateo. She finds herself stranded and alone after attempting to make Christmas journey to her aunts This was a great short Christmas read and also what felt like an introduction to the Carelli Family. This is my first book by either author and I really did enjoy the style and the story, looking forward to more from this series. Maggie is a single mother working as an waitress in a local diner, not having a babysitter or any real support especially from the her ex and father of her six month old Mateo. She finds herself stranded and alone after attempting to make Christmas journey to her aunts only for her car to run out of gas. Scared and in despair the last thing she is ecpecting was a knock on her window and a handsome stranger offering her shelter with him and his family. Can Maggie really believe in a Christmas miracle in the form of Smoke Carelli and his family and a future that they seem to be offering? Smoke Carelli wasn’t expecting to come across a car or a beautiful woman and her baby, knowing he cant leave them stranded in the car that looks like a death trap waiting to happen and with no heat, he makes the decision that they will stay with him and as a determined powerful man he gives her little chance to disagree. The drama within the Carelli family runs amok but Smoke cannot help but focus his attention upon Maggie and Mateo, the chemistry is electric from the get go and as much as he doesn’t want complications in his life he cannot help but be drawn to them both. Could this be something more and does he want more? The vibe of this book is great and I am greatly looking forward to reading more of all the Carelli family in the future, especially Smoke and Maggie. Recommended short read.

    One chapter more

    Not a happy ending like I was hoping for. I felt it kind of cut off the novella in the middle of the plot, leaving unfinished business. Other than that it was okay. Very light writing, effortless I could even say. Like the author decided to write something over one evening and she did.

Narrated by Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield this is a quick listen that will get you in the mood for the festive season. Their narration was spot on and really brought the story to life for me. Alone and stranded with her six month old son, Maggie is at the end of her rope. When Smoke rescues Maggie, she is initially frightened but slowly but surely he draws her in, offering them sanctuary, food and a warm place to rest. I fell hard and fast for Smoke, such an alpha, caring man who ticked the boxes for me. I don’t think either Maggie or Smoke realized how much was missing in their lives until they met. This was not only a smoking hot steamy listen but it was also witty and I adored how Smoke was so sweet with baby Mateo; he melted my heart.

    I really enjoyed this quick, holiday Christmas read. It turns out this is just the beginning of Smoke, Maggie and baby Mateo's story. Oh I have theories of what might come about. Looking forward to it! Lance and Samantha did a great job narrating. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

    Short and sweet! I love this little story so much that I want more! I really need to see where this goes. Smoke is hot and so not what he portrays himself to be. Maggie is strong but a bit weary from the toll life has taken. She is swept up by this family and surrounded by holiday love. We need more of this story and this family. Loved it!!

    (2.5 stars) I didn't realize it was part of series, but you could definitely tell there was/is more to the story. If I'd read the Carelli Family series, I probably would have enjoyed this more. Jumping in the middle of the world/series for this holiday short made this read, for me, kinda meh.

    Santa Baby is such a wonderful Christmas novella. Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler gave a nice, sweet and steamy sneak peek of Smoke and Maggie and I can’t wait for more. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more about them and the Carelli family.

    Santa Baby is a sweet & hot insta love holiday novella. It is set in the Carelli world, but can be read as a standalone. I’m actually not familiar with this series but loved this story and definitely plan to read more. “...you’re about to witness a Carelli Christmas. You might prefer freezing in your car to my crazy family.” I loved listening to this story on audiobook. It was a bit like having a Halmark Christmas movie ears! -4 Stars!-

    Santa Baby was the perfect setup for Smoke and Maggie. I can't wait for the rest of their story. Maggie is traveling with son to her aunt's house for Christmas but she ends up in a small town due to a snow storm and being short on gas money. Smoke comes to the rescue and brings Maggie and her son to family Christmas dinner. Little does Maggie know that dinner will turn into more. Santa Baby was the perfect setup for Smoke and Maggie.

There are too much events that happened that I wanted more explanation which is bad cuz it sounds like it will become a series and I wasn't expecting that when I started this book so now I'm confused and I don't like series, at least not anymore. So all in all, this book had more negative than positive for me. Hopefully I will like their book better than the novella.

    Unfinished story I liked the story until the end when I was surprised by the unfinished endings no HEA! just the promise of friendship and a new start UGH! I would have been totally disappointed if it was a long read so thank God it was short and didn't waste more than a hour of my time. But hey if you like soapoperas or stories that span additional books then I say to each his own but for me a hard pass...

    What A Holiday Treat, Even If Santa Was Not In Sight! I am very surprised that I loved this book and I want to read "Smoke" by Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler. In such a short tale, there was so much laughter, passion, fun and background that it kept me enthralled.

I am very surprised that I loved this book and I want to read "Smoke" by Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler. In such a short tale, there was so much laughter, passion, fun and background that it kept me enthralled. Maggie Ramirez, is a down on her luck single mother, who is driving a very old Monte Carlo with a hole in its floor. However, the love that she has for her infant son Mateo is strong and solid. While her pride and self-reliance can compete with anyone and win. Even as she battles her hardships, she is not bitter but possibly scared about what the future holds. On a snowy Christmas Eve night, she is stranded on the road. This is where she meets Dmitri "Smoke" Carelli. He is dangerous, threatening and terrifying but within a few minutes we see a kinder and gentler side. He has a streak of protection in him and our damsel in distress with her mijo have caught his attention. He invites her to join their family dinner. And that is where the fun begins and the sparks fly! We get to read both Maggie and Smoke's point of view. It is a great introduction to many of the characters, some of the plot lines and the back story to the upcoming sequels in the Carelli Family saga. I am usually not a fan of continuous swearing, but the atmosphere and environment is such, that it makes sense. I love the fact that all the roles are complicated and have their own set of rules. The descriptions of the emotions and expressions makes the reader smile and empathize. It is a roller coaster of a read and longer than I expected. I am curious to read "Smoke" followed by "Dario" which comes out on July 21, 2021. If you love complicated heroes, strong heroines, a cute kid and some action, you won't be disappointed!

The storyline for this book is easy to follow and it is an enjoyable read. I cannot wait for more of Maggie and Stone.

    Santa Baby was just what I needed this holiday season. A story of faith and awe at how one Smoke Carelli saves the tired and hopeless Maggie and her infant son Mateo one snowy night and how they not only feel the fire that is starting to burn between them but have the potential for becoming more. Bliss and Butler once again give their all (even in a shorter book) writing a beautiful little story with the right amount of steam, humor and what it means to be have another person's back no matter wha Santa Baby was just what I needed this holiday season.

    This was a super quick holiday story that did not disappoint. Smoke and Maggie look like they have just started with their story that includes Maggie's baby Mateo. The chemistry between Smoke and Maggie was palpable from the start. I also liked the little bit that we saw of the other Carelli's and look forward to more stories for all of them. In the audio version, the narration by Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield was performed well and the pair did a great job bringing this story to life This was a super quick holiday story that did not disappoint.

    Maggie is a single mother having nothing but bad luck. Well her luck was about to change when she is parked on the street. There is a knock on her window and she meets Smoke. He is nothing like guys she has known before but there is something about him that draws her to him. And the way he interacts with her 6 month old son makes him even hotter. I really enjoyed this story as well as the narrators. I would definitely enjoy a full novel with these characters. There is so much more to their story.
