I thought it would be fun today to share the list of KU holiday books that I have on my phone. One of my goals for 2021 is to be more intentional with using Kindle Unlimited since it is a service that I pay for. What could be a better way of setting myself up for success then starting this month to get in the habit of using KU more. Also most, if not all, the books I read on KU are romances which are usually quick reads and help me keep my reading momentum up high. It also helps things that a lot of these are novellas which also makes them the perfect one sitting reads. I unfortunately will not be able to get to all of these but I do hope to read a few of them this month. Feel free to share any other books on KU that you highly recommend for this time of year! And I hope that you find something fun to read this month from this list 🙂
All covers will link to Amazon to make it easer for you to grab a copy. If you pay for Kindle Unlimited these books are free. If you do use my link to purchase any of the books I may make a small commission.

Riley Kennedy’s emails keep getting crossed with her colleague, Kennedy Riley.
The infuriating man forwards them along with his annoying commentary and unsolicited advice. At least she never has to see him in person since they work in different locations…until they come face to face at the office holiday party. As luck would have it, Kennedy turns out to be gorgeous…though still a jerk.

It sounds easy enough. But little by little, the act they’re putting on starts to feel like so much more than a Christmas pact—and Riley’s about to learn there’s more to Kennedy than she ever imagined.
