Description

It serves up that cozy and wholesome romantic feeling, that makes you want to download tinder again and pretend like it’s a ‘good idea’.

In addition, there’s an amazing baby reindeer scene which is guaranteed to leave everyone laughing, as well as fab disability and LGBTQ+ representation. Haf instantly likes Christopher - although not in *that* way - and she wants to help him avoid an embarrassing Christmas being paraded in front of his own ex, Laurel. This book hits a few tropes - fake relationship, rich girl/poor girl - as well as starring a plus-sized heroine alongside a disabled love interest. It’s a classic in fake-romance novels: either the MC falls in love with the person they’re faking the romance with or they fall for their sister. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.

Filled with characters you’ll fall in love with and dreamy Christmas moments – it’s a festive delight!

in a refreshing change, each character has their own identity beyond this but the importance of the range of inclusivity is never lessened.After a year from hell, Haf is ready to blow off steam at a Christmas party: a kind stranger, a few too many drinks, and suddenly she's kissing Christopher under the mistletoe - in front of his ex-girlfriend.

On the note of my husband, we are both bi (he is also trans) so the representation was great to see. They are the author of the queer holiday rom-com Make You Mine This Christmas (2022) from Hodder Books, the summer romance Hits Different co-written with Tasha Ghouri (2024) from Hot Key Books, and Vivi Conway and the Sword of Legend (2023) from Knights Of. There’s the Christmas Eve-Eve village fete, the annual local ball, and the big day itself… Haf - the most adorable chaos monkey I’ve read in a while - tries her absolute best to play her role, but what can she do when shenanigans are attracted to her like a magnet?

From the mishaps and calamity to internet memes that my too-much-time-on-Twitter self absolutely ate up, with social media being involved in a way I really loved too. I absolutely see why Narfna/Ashley was so enthusiastic about this book, and the many quotes she included in her own review of the book are so much funnier in context. Here, it was a space for queer communities to connect and a place for people to share their passions. Because although it is written with specific groups in mind, it is good enough to be read beyond that.

Und dieses Jahr gab es sogar eine Übersetzung (Christine und Anna Julia Strüh): Weihnachten - nur du und ich von Lizzie Huxley-Jones. A fake-dating romance with a twist - our heroine, Haf, is fake-dating Christopher, an almost-complete stranger that she met at a party - but having gone to visit his very rich and fancy family over Christmas, she falls for his sister, Kit, instead. Add to that a fount of entertaining banter with all of the fantastic side characters, and this really was just so entertaining the whole way through! Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. But Haf doesn’t have better holiday plans and to save her new friend from embarrassment, she agrees to pretend to be Christopher’s girlfriend for Christmas.Seeing all these relationships created a sense of community that’s heart-warming af, and I couldn’t get enough of it. Occasionally the plot was a bit too cheesy and dramatised which is why I marked it down a star, however this really didn’t bother me much. To save her new friend from embarrassment – and with no better plans of her own – Haf agrees to go along with the ruse. If you get a chance, listen to the audiobook because Helen Keeley’s narration had me up into the wee hours. The long-awaited second instalment in Samantha Shannon's Sunday Times and New York Times-bestselling series Tunuva Melim is a sister of the Priory.
