My Review of Our Totally, Ridiculous, Made-Up Christmas Relationship (A Novella) by Brittainy Cherry


This book easily deserved 5 stars after the first three chapters. What hooked me first were the humorous characters. I mean Jules is totally neurotic and yet completely loveable. She has been luck with man though and finds herself desperate for a boyfriend to take home for Christmas. She stands in the middle of her agency lobby, offering $1000 for a weekend boyfriend! CRAZY, but Sexdorable comes to her rescue! Sexdorable is the man that she has already ran into, literally, and who we met in the first chapter. Kayden takes Jules up on her offer, hoping this paying "acting" job will help win approval from his family.

So after all this humor, we finally meet Jules' family. If you thought Kayden's family was bad, I think Jules has it worst, unfortunately. However, the man we thought was a playboy, Kayden, turns out to be sweet and a softy. Driven by a desire to hold Jules, Kayden stands up to the family, and pretends to be the perfect boyfriend after seeing how bad her family treats her. Well, pretend may be a little inaccurate. I mean you can totally tell these two desperately want to fall in love with each other! They were made for one another!!

After the first day with Jules' family, the characters really start to develop! These is were the tears keep sneaky in. You learn more about Kayden's past and how the playboy show is one of his best performance. You see the two of them truly connecting as Jules and Kayden, while completely forgetting that he is suppose to be Richard.

The last chapter is perfect! It provides the perfect closure to all of our characters! This novella could have been longer! But it was not rushed at all! The characters develop slowly yet quickly enough for a novella, they have there ups and downs without them being drawn out, and they the growth that they characters makes seem natural. The author did a wonderful job developing this story!

One of the funniest scenes is when grandma and her boyfriend come into the kitchen and Jules and Kayden hide. I laughed the whole time while feeling grossed out along with Jules! My favorite scene was probably when they were in the snow, making the snow angels. I really felt like I connected with Jules and Kayden on a new level.
