Publisher's Summary

An amusing, charming lesbian romance about finding unexpected love inside family expectations.

When Fiona Ng’s best friend, Michael, needs a pretend girlfriend to bring home for Christmas in Arkansas, Fiona girds her loins and steps up. Besides, how hard could one festive family weekend be, anyway? That’s before she meets the boisterous McElroy clan, with accents as thick as a homemade pie crust, and an endless supply of competitive siblings, including Lizzie, Michael’s beautiful younger sister.

Lizzie seems to be everywhere, with her intoxicating scent, wandering hands, lingering gaze, and that bright, echoing laugh. The more time Fiona spends in her orbit, she wonders how she can even concentrate let alone pull off a convincing fake relationship.

Lovely holiday romance

This was an easy, light-hearted story that flowed nicely, with natural comedic points along the way. The narration was easy to understand while maintaining believable accents.

Great book that I only wish was longer

I love this author and own both of her other books already. I jumped at the chance to add this one to my collection and I don’t regret it. The characters were funny and the story was engaging. The ending was good but I wish it could have been a bit longer. Maybe an epilogue or something but the last line had me laughing. It’s more that I just wanted more time with the characters rather than needing it though. Don’t wait on this one, it’s definitely worth the credit.

HOT with a slice of sizzle and soooo funny.

Incredible humor and down right entertainment, KL Hughes beans her intended target with a snow ball right in the kisser on this one (you'll get this later). I was completely enchanted. The couples obvious care for each other as best friends is sweater than a candy cane. The family dynamics between the 85 siblings is as chunky and delicious as cherry pie. And the tension and heat between the romance builds burns brighter than an outdoor Xmas light. This was a romantic romance from start to finish. The traditional ice skating scene was opted out for a snowball fight. The MC had superbly written anxieties that shined when they needed too, causing all sorts of havoc. Even Grandma had her moments. Totally a fun, awesome ride down the snow covered mountain in a toboggan made of laughter, ridiculousness, emotional commitment, and unbridled sex. You had me at "lay back, I want to..." Thank you KL
My audible was narrated by Nicole Blessing and she just about made me spew my drink a half dozen times. The comedic timing was perfect, the tone was redonkulus. And Nicolle even sounds as southern as my granddaddy's nanny from Nawlins.
Great combo of talent and writing. Buy this book. No, I mean it. Right now. Buy this book.

A book with a tiny twist...

Few weeks ago I read a similar book, very similar story line but this one as a small difference so I guess it has the right to exist. Towards the end there is a sex scene just because the writer thought if there is no sex scene it will not be a good sell... completely out of place. And illogical.
Narration was Ok but could be better.

couldn't make it through

I wanted to like this book because I've lived others by this author but I couldn't handle the narration and gave up.

Who do you owe.

A great punch line...For a great orgasm. Better than beard romances I come to know and love before. Beautiful voice characters that brought me in. A little twist to same story. Grandma can bite it.

TERRIBLE ACCENT!

I enjoyed the book, but the narration was absolutely the worst! I’m from East Texas and I almost couldn’t listen to this cringeworthy attempt at at southern accent. Literally would’ve been better had she not attempted one at all. If someone is going to narrate using an accent, one should at least be able to perform said accent. I hope she refrains from EVER trying to use this accent again because literally no southerner I have ever known has spoken even remotely like that.

Weird ending

It ends kinda lamely

Also, like all lesbian novels why do the authors have to go into the sex scenes. It’s unnecessary and a waste and f space and words. Things you should write about the characters and the surroundings

The reader is one of the worst readers
