    The sixth book in this amazing seven-book series around a wooden Christmas Angel sculpted in 1750, is set in 1999, and the angel has made its way from London via the United States to New Zealand. It has had quite some stories to tell, all of them very emotional, but this one has a much...

    A charmingly vain rogue plays games with the overbearing older brother next door. Who ends up winning surprises, well, one of them. This New Zealand set (read: summer) Christmas MM romance is loosely based on Shakespeare's comedy: The Taming of The Shrew. And a sort of homage t...

    The Taming of the Shrewis my least favourite Shakespearean play. But Anyta Sunday is my one of my favourite m/m authors and I thought if there's anyone who can make me like a retelling of this abhorrent play, it's Anyta Sunday. And guess what? She did. Shrewd Angelis an adora...

    Full Disclosure: I'm the author of another book in this series. But each book is a standalone, written independently by the author, so I can have some objectivity. I loved this slow-burn story with music, snarky dialogue, and fun supporting characters. I was rooting for Pax and Clif...

    ?Just because I?m gay and you?re gay, doesn?t mean we should be gay together.? Pax rested his head back against Cliff?s shoulder. ?No, but I?m a dick, and you?re a dick, and we both like dick, so . . .? So... it's kinda hard to write this. I love Anyta's ...

    The superb sloooooow burn talents of Anyta Sunday, a retelling of one of my favourite Shakespeare comedies, throw away lines referencing one of my favourite musicals (Taming of the Shrew and Kiss Me Kate respectively) and our interfering Christmas Angel conspire to produce a genius fes...

    4.5 stars rounded up because this is Anyta Sunday. Duh? I love her for her uncomplicated, drama-free slow-burn romances with two adorable (and surprisingly mature) idiots, and she delivers exactly that. I just loved this <3 ...

    December is when I glut myself on fluffy little Christmas romances. This book had a Christmas story, but it was actually not little at all and had a lot more than just fluff - this is the only one of the Christmas Angel series that I've read so far (I've read two others) that feels lik...

    I always look forward to new releases from Ms. Sunday and couldn?t contain a small whoop of joy when I saw her along the list of marvelous authors participating in this collection. Her addition is slightly different but no less enjoyable in my opinion. She excels at slow-burn and Pax...

    Shrewd Angel is such a cute read full with shenanigans from guitarist Pax Polo trying to tame the neighborhood shrew, Cliff. Pax had moved into a new neighborhood after gotten kicked out of his band and feeling all sorry for himself. But he had a new task in hand, distract the shrew an...

    Not my favourite 2.5 stars I think I?m going to be on my own on this one as I?m thinking this is going to be one of those It?s me not you situations Everyone I can see enjoyed this one and I just didn?t. It?s well written but I didn?t really like either character an...

    I kind of have mixed feelings about this latest Anyta Sunday read. I loved the snark, banter, and games between Pax and Cliff, which flowed naturally on the page and felt extremely believable. Pax was a bit of a mess and Cliff was entirely too put together for his own good, so ...

    *beta read an unedited version* This book is a M/M romance set in New Zealand featuring music, found families and enemies to lovers. It's not too heavy on the Xmas element which is something I appreciated a lot since I'm not big on Xmas. If you're into the genre and are looking fo...

    Yesss, Anyta Sunday delvers my first 5 star of the year! Ding ding ding! This book feels very Antya Sunday-y for me. Very on brand. I don't know what it says about me that her books often feel very similar at their core to me, but I often have very different feelings about them. Oft...

    We fast forward another 25 years and we are in NZ at the turn of the 21st century. Outcast from his band, Pax sets his sights on his neighbors and helps his flatmate to get with the neighbors sister. Yes, this book had some funny moments but as I had not read Taming of the Shrew some...

    DNF @18% Ugh this is so frustrating but I just can?t with this book. I love Anyta Sunday and Christmas stories even more, not to mention the enemies-to-lovers trope. But I?ve been picking and putting this book down for 2 weeks now and I just find it incredibly dull. The banter ...

    Based on Shakespeare?s Taming the Shrew and kinda 10 things I hate about you style, this is a Christmas story that shows us how important friendship is and how it fills your life. How you can find love when you?re not looking for it, when you don?t know even what love is. ...

    A bit of a mess.... Man, was the beginning of this book awkward and clunky!! It had it?s moments, but it never got up to speed for any amount of time. Never felt smooth. It was a very forced retelling of Shakespeare?s Taming of the Shrew that just did not work. At all. I ...

    A Joyfully Jay review. 4 stars Loosely based on Shakespeare?s The Taming of the Shrew, Shrewd Angel is a wild romp complete with witty dialogue, fantastic humor, and fast moving action. One cannot help but fall in love with Pax regardless of the fact that his scheming and mani...

    It was a wicked cool idea that this Christmas ornament was a lucky charm . Or more than that. A guardian angel. (...) I'm swooning big time here. Get ready for the cuteness people... Take one Angel tree topper,a whole lot of meddling,some truly engaging character...

    This is classic Anyta Sunday all wrapped up in a late-90s, New Zealand Christmas package. Slow-burn goodness, witty snark, oblivious MCs, amazing secondary characters, healing and comfort. Everything I expect when I open up a book by this author, who never leaves me disappointed. Pa...

    Overall book rating: 4.5 Audio Book: N/A Book Cover: 3.5 In my humble opinion Anyta Sunday did GOOD. I really enjoy her particular way with characters. The way she makes you laugh but there?s an underlying seriousness as well. A growth to the characters that I really enjoy....

    *4,5 stars* It was a wicked cool idea that this Christmas ornament was a lucky charm. Or more than that. A guardian angel. I can only whole-heartedly agree! I was even more delighted at the thought that Anyta Sunday modelled this book on the 'Taming of the Shrew' which is my...

    What a story. An over inflated ego of a rock star going against a Shrewd mind of the neighborhood shrew. Each in their own way playing a game, but not knowing how to act when it becomes more than a game. I don't know who I wanted to shake more. Pax or Cliff. Both so hard headed and st...

    I enjoyed this installment of the Christmas Angel books but I didn't buy into Pax or Cliff as a couple. Not until the very end. But more, I felt left out as I read the story. I may be the only adult in the US who has not read The Taming of the Shrew so I was lost among the references a...

    You know how when you?re watching college football and an SEC team loses, and the camera cuts to their fans weeping in the stands, all the sad UGA bros in their boat shoes have had a breakdown and are crying their eyes out? That was me reading this...crying like I was about to throw ...
