A short Christmas romance to warm your heart this winter.

Lottie: I hate Christmas.

The LED lights give me a headache.

I can't sing. And I get sick. Every. Single. Year.

This year is the worst. My Nan is practically on her deathbed and has planned for the biggest Christmas party this world has ever seen. Everyone will be there. Lucas Green is invited. My childhood crush. The guy I've been stuck in the friend zone for years. This is my last chance to get him to notice me. But how do I stop looking like an idiot with all the Christmas cheese at every turn?

Lucas: It's the best time of year.

Business is booming.

Ada's about to give birth any day now.

The town is full of cheer. And Lottie is coming home for the holidays.

This is it. The year I finally make a move. Otherwise I think Ada will kill me. Problem is, every time I see her, my legs turn to jelly and I act like a total idiot. I need to woo her with lots of Christmas surprises. I mean, who doesn't love Christmas? Nothing can go wrong.

An adorable Christmas story including all of the couples from the 'Love Me' series. Laughter, tear-jerking moments and swoon-worthy romance all wrapped up in Christmas gift wrap. A British Christmas romance suitable for all ages.

My Review

LOVE ME, DARLING is a sweet romance set in England between two old friends who find that this Christmas might change everything for them. The characters are charming, as is the setting, with plenty of humor and crazy mishaps to liven the story up. Sweet romance fans and fans of the series may enjoy this one.

This is the first book I've read from this series, so I think those who have read the other three books will probably get the most enjoyment from reading this short story. The author doesn't give a thorough introduction of most of the side characters, so I didn't really connect with any of them. However, the main characters, Lottie and Lucas, I connected with just fine. There were plenty of great moments between these two, some chemistry filled, others humorous, and some a little heartbreaking. It was a predictable story, but with enough twists and turns, as well as some entertaining meddlers that made it interesting.

In the end, was it what I wished for? Overall, I enjoyed reading this. It's short, sweet, and light, with a setting and characters that are easy to like.
