But even the best technology has its glitches. When real-life emotions come into play, this trio of

In this anthology of contemporary Christmas-oriented novellas, three women create fake boyfriends via the Build-a-Boyfriend App, with results ranging from charming to discomfiting. In Johnsons charismatic A Boyfriend by Christmas, a chance meeting on Thanksgiving and a text sent to the wrong contact lead to alluring romantic possibilities. Angells pleasant All I Want for Christmas Is... features a woman vying to be a CEOs personal shopper. She invents a boyfriend to stay competitive, but her tantalizing potential boss challenges her resolve. Finally, in Charless frustrating Her Favorite Present, Gabe, the cocreator of Build-a-Boyfriend, believes anyone using the app is a pathetic waste of space until he makes a bet involving covertly getting to know one of their clients. The stories, especially All I Want, feel rushed sometimes, but the brevity keeps characters from having to dwell in awkward situations. A Boyfriend by Christmas is invitingly sweet; by contrast, Her Favorite Present is brought down by Gabes deceit and snide disdain. Still, this collection will appeal to romance fans who enjoy stories of mix-ups and confidentor even arrogantmen. (Oct.)
