About Faking Christmas

Faking Christmas

One little white lie.

That’s all it took. Now I’m suddenly having to fake-date my work nemesis to get me through a week at a Vermont Christmas lodge with my family.

The problem? I can’t stand Miles Taylor. Not only that, but I don’t date people I work with. But I can handle it. I’ve had practice faking my emotions for years. So it shouldn’t matter that Miles never lets me get away with anything. And that he happens to boil my blood hotter than a steaming pot of wassail. So when he throws his annoying grin my way or forces me on dates he knows I’ll hate, I’ll just grit my teeth and smile.

Or maybe not. Did I mention that Miles is the one person in the world I can’t seem to fool?

When my emotions begin feeling less like a sham and his arms feel way too comfortable, it makes me think that maybe Miles had a plan of his own. And I’m starting to like it a lot more than mine.

★ Faking Christmas is a sweet, closed door romance full of sizzle, witty banter, and chemistry, but without explicit content.

My review

It’s no secret that I love Christmas romance, romantic comedies and Cindy Steel books. And this book. I don’t even know how to tell you how much I loved it. It sucked me in from the very first chapter. The email at the beginning is so funny and great. You’re going to just have to read it for yourself to know just how amazing it is!

Olive is a complex character. She’s had a hard year, her dad passed away just after Christmas the previous year. And she’s had to watch her mom get married again during all of the mourning. And now, it’s time for Christmas again. Something about Olive is that she is a people pleaser. She’s always trying to help everyone around her. And she doesn’t really say no to people. She’s just a bit like me, that way, I think.

There isn’t anyone Olive hates as much as Miles. He’s the teacher across the hall from her. Miles teaches English just like Olive. But he’s seen as the “cool teacher.” And that’s a little hard for Olive. Olive is a good teacher too, but there’s just something about getting to read Harry Potter in Miles’ class that gives him a little extra.

I loved how these two ended up spending Christmas together. It made me laugh. And strangely do a few crazy things of my own. These two have so much chemistry, even though Olive tries to deny it.

This book makes me want to read each and every one of these Christmas Escape books. If you need me, that’s where I’ll be!

I was sent an e-copy of Faking Christmas as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
