No one wants to be single at the holidays.
Even Little Miss Grinch, Nikki, a successful and independent woman, must face her bachelorette status at the most horrible time of the year.
December is her personal version of holly-jolly hell: a merry torture made of couples kissing at every corner, forced vacation days, and an inescapable family reunion.
And when her baby sister announces she’s engaged—to Paul, the man Nikki is secretly in love with—and that he’s spending the holidays with them, Christmas starts looking bluer than ever.
Nikki can’t possibly survive an entire week trapped home as the family’s spinster. But she has no time to meet men or to try the newest dating app, she’s too busy working as a video producer for an advertising agency.
So what’s a girl to do?
Nikki has the perfect solution: to hire a fake boyfriend.
Luckily, her job gives her access to an endless catalog of gorgeous actors to choose from.
But Nikki will soon discover that keeping business and pleasure from mixing isn’t so easy, and that she might not be immune to a little mistletoe magic. Especially not when she picked out the perfect man as her Christmas date…
🎄❄📚My thoughts on the novel 🎄❄📚
What a fun read! I devoured it in a matter of three days. I really enjoyed this romantic comedy set at Christmastime with all the fuss and family feud it can entail. Granted I thought Nikki’s mother and sister were a bit over the top and quite unfair in the way they treated her, I still liked the way the plot unfolded and the incredible chemistry between the heroine and handsome Diego. It all happens at a quick pace. You can easily visualise the action like your typical Hollywood romcom.
If you enjoy feel-good, heartwarming Christmas romances with the right dosage of humour, comedy and happy-ever-after, then A Christmas Date won’t disappoint. It is part of a series of interconnected novels, but it can be read as a standalone.
