☆✮ My Review ✮☆
"Neala was an adrenaline rush for me, she was something I craved and feared at the same time.. I’d never admit it though, it killed me just admitting it to myself.”
A couple of things came to mind when I thought of summing up this Holiday romance-
1) There’s a fine line between love and hate
2) When a boy teases you, it means he likes you
3) And Arnold Schwartzenegger’s movie, Jingle All the Way.
I mean, when a guy says:
"I’m not sweet talking you. I’ve just never told you that even thought we have hate for one another, I still have a lot love for you. Even though we are at each other’s throats all the time, you’re a huge part of my life. You take up half of it to be honest.”
It’s pretty clear with the whole childhood to adult feud going on between you where his TRUE FEELINGS really lie.
So, the back story:
Neala and Darcy were once best of friends, whose family has a long reputation of being besties as well.
“Darcy and I were best friends by default. Our mother’s were best friends, our older brother’s were best friends, our dad’s were best friends, even our grandparent’s, God rest them, were best friends.”
As feelings and awareness start to emerge and take notice, Darcy commits a fatal classic cliché that young boys do to girls, and from then on out the two are sworn enemies for the next twenty years.
"There was no escaping Darcy or his family after our falling out, so we both learned to tolerate one another as best we could…Which was usually fighting or pranking one another.”
Fast-forward till present day, and a couple days until Christmas… and with both Neala and Darcy promising to get the most sought out doll for their niece/nephew in time for Xmas... it’s going to be an epic showdown between the battle of the sexes to get a hold and sort through their erratic feelings for each other and secure that one hot off the press doll!
Now add in(++)-- some meddling between their families, a couple day snow in, some hot sizzling sex, and a couple of hilarious spats and you’ve got yourself a story! I swear, there’s a cute romance brewing between young Dustin and Charli and I’m so curious if their puppy love will go smooth sailing, or end up just like their aunt and uncle!! Such great role models!! lol!!
**Move on to a totally random side note--
Why would Darcy's several-year-long ex-fuck buddy (until Darcy's get together with Neala) be okay with sleeping with him through all of those years when she clearly knew and even acknowledged (later on in the book) that she was aware that Darcy was in love with Neala? What self-respecting woman would do something like that when she could probably see that Neala felt the same exact way that Darcy felt about for her? Isn't it against girl code to do something like that? Not to mention, it was a tad weird when Darcy broke things off with her she was A-okay with it and was like, "it's okay, I've always known you were in love with her." Such a slutty-strange character.
#An entertaining and engaging read that will make hopeless romantics swoon and readers want to fall all over in love once more!!
