Charlotte “Charlie” Donovan knows what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He’s a star athlete, in the National Honor Society, invited to every party, and contributes to the school paper (where Charlie is co-editor). Basically, he's exactly the type of guy Charlie’s looking for. The only problem—he barely knows she exists.

But Charlie has a plan: Rig the paper’s Secret Santa and win his heart with five perfect gifts. Enter J.D. Ortiz—Teo’s cousin, and possibly the most annoying person on the planet. He’s easygoing, laid-back, unorganized, and spontaneous—the exact opposite of Charlie (and Teo). But he knows what Teo wants, so she’s stuck with him.

Yet the more time Charlie spends with J.D. the more she starts to wonder: Does she really know what, or rather who, she wants for Christmas?

Why I can't wait for this one!

This novel not only looks SUPER CUTE and full of humor and romance, but it's a Christmas-themed book, too! And the Christmas season is my FAVORITE time of year!! In fact, I start reading ONLY these types of books just as soon as Thanksgiving is over, and sometimes even BEFORE then! Lol. Besides, that cover is PERFECT for such a book! How ironic that this novel is being released on Halloween. Well, I will DEFINITELY be ordering it RIGHT AWAY!!

Shani Petroff is the author of the YA novels Romeo and What's Her Name (Macmillan/Feb. 2017) and My New Crush Gave to Me (Macmillan/Oct. 2017) and the tween series, Bedeviled (Penguin). She is also the co-author of Ash, as well as a TV writer and blogger.

    1. Hi, Barb!

      Before I continue, I'd like to apologize for the late reply. I'm trying to catch up, as I've fallen behind on replies and comments back.... :(

      Oh, DEFINITELY this is a really cute Christmas read!! And that cover certainly contributes to the overall cuteness!! Lol.

      Hubby and I are doing well. Thank God, we had no damage to our condo, but then, we boarded up GOOD, and Miami only got Category 1 winds, for the most part. We had no power for three days, though! Thanks so much for thinking about us! You and the boys are SO SWEET!!

      Thanks for the lovely comment, Barb!! HUGS TO YOU AND THE BOYS!! WOOF, WOOF!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  5. I agree with the others; this sounds like a cute read. I have a few Christmas/Holiday themed books in my TBR stack I hope to get to this fall. Time will tell if I do. I hope you enjoy this one when you read it! I hope you are well, Maria!

    1. Hi, Wendy!

      First off, I must apologize for the late reply. I'm trying to catch up on all of my replies and comments back..... :(

      Oh, this will DEFINITELY be a VERY cute read! And, like you, I ADORE Christmas-themed romance novels!! I'm ALL SET to enjoy this one when I get it!! YAAAAAAY!!!!

      Hubby and I are doing well. Thanks for asking, Wendy!! Thankfully, we had no damage to our condo, but then, we boarded up GOOD. Plus, Irma only hit Miami with Category 1 winds. We got the periphery. Heck, we weren't even in the cone, at the last minute! But, since this hurricane was SO HUGE, we did get some effects.

      Thanks for the lovely comment!! HUGS TO YOU AND MOUSE!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  6. This sounds like it will be a fun and sweet read for sure! Nice pick.

    1. Hi, Renee!

      Oh, I KNOW it will definitely be a fun read!! :)

      Yes, hubby and I are doing okay. We didn't get any damage to our condo, but then, we boarded up VERY securely, and Irma's winds were a Category 1, when they did reach Miami. The Keys and the west coast of Florida were hit much harder. Thanks for your concern!! <3 <3

      Thanks for the lovely comment!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)
