Booked for Christmas by Lily Menon

This is a short Christmas read by Lily Menon ( Sandhya Menon). It will definitely get you into the holiday spirit with a boisterous holiday party, lots of snow, lots of spirits and signs. I am definitely a signs person, I loved Sophie! In my dating days, I was a disaster in the romantic area before I met my husband, so I can relate to her prior failures in that department (I really should write short stories of all the ridiculousness guys put me through, it’s quite hilarious the excuses guys give for breaking up with you). I’m so silly I got full body chills for the sign at the end of the book lol. You got me!

I am a definite fan of enemies to lovers. These two characters only knew each other through their work from her fictional world she created and him writing negative reviews. And I think we all have seen those who don’t relate to certain peoples works/books. So he doesn’t relate to romance, he might not be the one to review them, lol. Through the few days alone together the years of knowledge he has of her work take on a different light and they both see each other differently. Sparks may fly and it doesn’t hurt that they are snowed in with no chance of escape. But they may have never gotten to see each other’s humanity otherwise. She was a silly romantic and he was her villain. But we all know the saying “You can’t judge a book but its cover.”

I was hoping for a little prologue with them a year later at the next Christmas, accidentally snowed in again. I def have a book hangover cause I was enjoying the two of them and would definitely read more of these two characters!!

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 – definite add to our must read for Christmas Romance, enemies to lovers, about books and the book world, diverse characters, steamy scenes 

Synopsis:

This new novella from Lily Menon, author of Make Up Break Up, is sure to get readers in the holiday spirit.

Novelist Sophia Hart (real name: Sophie Bartholomew-Kaur-Hughes, but try fitting that on a book cover) absolutely hates her loudest critic—Evan Wolfe, evil mastermind behind the Lone Wolfe book review column. They’ve never met, but Wolfe’s favorite pastime seems to be dumping on Sophie’s unapologetically happy, magical romances. Sophie, not one to be left behind, gets her revenge in her own ways (never annoy a writer in search of a villain).

When Sophie decides to throw a holiday party at her cabin, Wolfe is the last person on her mind. But the universe has a twisted sense of humor. Not only does Wolfe show up as someone’s plus one, but a massive snowstorm blows in, stranding them both alone together in Sophie’s cabin.

Over the next few days, Sophie begins to realize that Wolfe isn’t as odiously cynical a man as she’d originally thought. In fact, he’s kind of…sweet. And impossibly hot. But still, Sophie’s been hurt before and she has so much to lose. What she needs is one sure sign that she and Wolfe are meant to be together. Will Sophie and Wolfe get their Christmas miracle?
