A one-sitting kind of read!
This book was so good.
Mia and Carson have always hated each other. As Carson's brother's best friend, they've spent most of their lives circling each other, but never becoming friends themselves.
Until now. After injuring Caron injures Mia in gym class and she retaliates, the two are forced to work together to take over the school's holiday angel project. If they don't kill each other first.
What I loved:
Pretty much everything. Mia is such a strong character and it's easy to root for her. It tugged on my heart when she kept waiting and waiting for the acceptance letter. Carson took some warming up to, but only because of how we see him through Mia's eyes. As the story moves alone, we learn how a lot of his past actions had reasons beyond antagonization. He becomes a sweet guy who has always been in love with his brother's best friend.
What was just okay: Some unnecessary drama with the brother, but I understand why it had to happen so it didn't take away from the story.
A story you'll want to read in one sitting with characters you won't want to leave behind, and a writing style that leaves you looking for everything else written by this author.
