Holly and Dominic are absolutely adorable, and I loved their witty banter and quick one-liners as they struggle to make sense of a whirlwind romance in the making.
I love the holidays. How does my writing process work?
Decked with Holly
While I wish both of the characters acted closer to their ages 18 and 21it wasn’t something that bugged me too much. The rumors created by her relationship with Nick were as impossible as the ones I read sometimes, so it was nice to have an insight on the celebrity life for once. I gave this one bwtes out of 5 books because the smiles, laughter and yes even the tears were worth the trip through these pages.
But the band can’t risk a scandal destroying their family-friendly image, so Dominic convinces Holly to be his fake girlfriend – just for two weeks.

And then I thought that since they included my name, maybe they wanted to hire me to write books about Brazilian billionaires! There was plenty of wjth and I liked the alternating viewpoints. The last twenty pages were almost agonizing for me to read, hoping for a good ending and expecting onebut still terrified that there were not enough pages left to bring me a satisfactory ending.
Surprisingly, Nick made me laugh too and I grinned when the ending came! Two more chapters would have been good. And when seasickness forces her into an open suite, she’s pepper-sprayed by a gorgeous guy called Nick.
Was hoping for a cute romance to make me smile. Trying to save money to buy new clothes, Holly was willing to take almost any job. Devked are just some of the highlights: I bribe myself with the promise of Thai food. It would have been a whole lot harder for me to move on without that closure. I was going for a Statue of Liberty meets Starbucks meets heavily-caffeinated Marni look.

I didn’t expect to finish it this fast but honestly the plot was moving so flawlessly that I really enjoyed how it all played out so we Holly who is basically the Cinderella of her family who finds herself stuck into a fake relationship with a famous rock star Dominic and how will she deal with it in a pan of four days.

Taking a Christmas cruise with her two cousins from hell isn’t Holly’s idea of a good time. First off, the female narrator sounds like a chipmunk.
Which is why I will reveal all my plans right now: Dec 13, Rachel Harris rated it it was amazing Shelves: Full of relevant pop culture references and humorous moments, this novel is pure fun. Usually I stare at my laptop and say:. Light-hearted, cute and what every pre-teen, teen, dreams of. But, ridiculously cute, and perfect for the holiday season.
