  1. Tanu Gill

    I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review Again, so sorry for the delay 3.5 stars.The story starts out normal enough About midway through, I had kind of made up my mind that it was just a meh book, nothing special to make it memorable But then that twist happened at the end It roused a new interest in me regarding the outcome of the situation So I upped my predecided rating by half a star.Yes, as my friend Isabella has written in her review for New Leaf, the storylines are a teeny tiny b [...]

    ARC kindly provided by the author to me in exchange for an honest review The style itself was good and had a fluent writing and the character where a bit better developed than in other books by the author The sex was hot but unfortunately a bit short It could have been a better balance so this way it had a lack And I felt a connection was missing.The behaviour of Ethan at the end was unfortunately a downfall I could have give the book 4 stars but had to reduce the stars, because I can t stand hi [...]

    I really liked this Thanksgiving story It was cute and adorable, very little angst, which is great when it s a short story set around a holiday Daniel and Ethan were both likable The story was fast paced and easy to read An enjoyable story I would definitely recommend this story.

    This was a sweet read some spots did irritate me but overall i really enjoyed it the characters were fun i hated the one set of parents though they pissed me off overall this was a good read and im glad i got to review it

  12. Barbara

    This was a yearning story of love left behind because of fear on both the parts of best friends, Ethan and Daniel Both sure that the other doesn t love them except as a friend Daniel leaves for the big city for college to flee the love he has for Ethan and to get away from unloving and emotionally neglectful parents Ethan finally admits he is bisexual, but never tells a gay Daniel and watches the love of his life leave without telling him the truth Several years pass and Daniel decides to come h [...]

    When I was searching for stories centered around Thanksgiving I was coming up short but then I came across Hayden Hunt s Cold Turkey and thought this sounds interesting Was it great No Was it good Yes Was it worth my time to read it Definitely I have an amazing relationship with my parents so when I find a story where one of the characters has just the opposite, it breaks my heart for them but it also reminds me how blessed I am That feeling alone made this a perfect story for Thanksgiving Did i [...]

  14. Sara Long

    Rating 4.5 out of 5 starsI m fairly certain I ve read nearly every one of author Hayden Hunt s books, and this one is by far my favorite to date Why I absolutely loved the story itself, the concept, the back story, and its plausibility The angst conflict wasn t overdone and was realistically plot driven and evolved naturally, and hence seamlessly moved the story forward instead of simply serving as a plot mechanism.Cold Turkey is a heartwarming second chance at a first time, meant to be love sto [...]

  15. Shelley Chastagner

    Nice little weekend book with a holiday feel I really liked watching these two navigate crossing from childhood friends reconnecting after several years to lovers There are lots of assumptions from both of them that hold the relationship back until it all gets exposed It was interesting to see them work through some tough moments and I was a bit disappointed in Ethan for a bit but he rectified his mistakes I was impressed that Daniel was so quick to forgive and understanding of what caused Ethan [...]

  16. Beth

    I liked the idea of this book and it was cute but I really struggled with the idea of jumping into a relationship after not speaking to someone for six years, even if you used to be best friends A lot changes and I would have liked to have seen them reconnect rather than focus on outside issues The other issues going on really made Ethan a jerk too, which is another reason I had a hard time really getting into this one Overall though I liked the story and it does have a happy ending so2 stars.

  17. Deborah

    Talk To Each OtherAn ARC was given to me and I agreed to voluntarily review this book My opinions are my own He went home to surprise his parents for Thanksgiving and he got the surprise He didn t know what he was going to do, until his childhood friend from across the street talked him into staying with his family Ethan invited him because Dan was his best friend when they were kids Unknown to either of them, they were in love with each other This is a entertaining read Enjoy I did.

  18. Jessica

    This book was okay It wasn t my favorite from this author I wish there was to the story I wish there was depth It left me wanting to know It kind of just happily ever after With that being said I did enjoy reading it You have Daniel who is going home to see his parents for Thanksgiving and not seeing them in a couple years His parents decided to move a couple years ago and not tell him So he s standing on the doorstep of his childhood home calling his mom Who then tells him that he wouldn t o [...]

    I m voluntarily reviewing a free advance reader copy I received from the author.So let me start by saying I HATE Daniel s family As a mom, I couldn t even imagine putting my kids through what they did My heart hurt for him so bad Thankfully Ethan had a much better family, and I loved his mom.Daniel and Ethan were best friends growing up, and each had a crush on the other, but kept it quiet because they didn t want to ruin the friendship Of course, time and distance take care of that for them Whe [...]
