Publisher's Summary

A steamy, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy about mistakes we make and the chances we take on the road to love.

After a snowstorm grounds her flight, Lucy makes a last-ditch effort to get home for Christmas using a rideshare app. She thinks she’ll be taking a road trip with a stranger...but the guy who shows up is someone she knows all too well. He’s the hookup she ghosted a few months ago, and now she’ll be stuck in a car with him for the most awkward road trip of her life.

Making matters worse, he’s even more gorgeous than she remembers—too bad things between them are frostier than the North Pole. Will the long ride home allow them to get to know each other in surprising new ways? And more importantly, will the season warm things up and send sparks flying yet again? Whatever happens, one thing is clear: It’s going to take a whole lot of Christmas magic to unlock their guarded hearts.

Another one that I can’t finish 😒

Only have 55mins or so left but just couldn’t go on. So stupid about not trusting and blew it all out cos a high school ex gf 🥱. Whatever, I lived thru the same life experience but if she is in that state, she doesn’t deserve love.

Escapism into a magical wistful little romantic comedy

Loved this little holiday listen. Had the perfect amount of spice, magic and comedy to stitch up their story. I loved these characters and how their past hurts helped shape the story but also how they took that leap of faith to overcome them to find each other.

Cute and easy to read

There were lots of cute moments and it had everything a good Christmas rom-com needs. I enjoyed all of the modern day elements mixed with the classics.

A very cute Holiday romance

I really enjoyed listening to this holiday rom com set in such an adorable small town, and narrated by 
I had a good giggle at certain parts and managed to listen to it in one sitting basically.
Lucy and Eric had met each other once and then never spoke again until the day all flights get cancelled and Lucy finds herself stuck at the airport trying to get home for Christmas. 
I don’t do spoilers so this is as much as I will say on the storyline, I don’t want to give anything away. 
I really enjoyed the narrators on this audio book to, they executed the book so well, it was such an enjoyable experience.

Interesting supporting characters

The introduction & end sections were short/ moved quickly. The tinsel town (main body) a bit drawn out/slow (in comparison). Not bad but a little clunky.

Narration Sounds Like an Action Trailer

I found the male narration by both laughable and painful at first. His too-deep "masculine" voice was put-on and was over-the-top and stilted. It sounded like he was reading the trailer of a b-grade action film. "ERIC. DIDN'T. KNOW... HOW. HUNGRY. HE. WAS... UNTIL. HE. SMELLED. THE. TURKEY'S. SAVOURY. AROMA...".
It did seem to get less exaggerated as the book went on and he read the female parts well, so it seemed to be how he played 'Eric' (every second chapter).
The story was predictable as expected but wasn't bad for a bit of Christmas/romance fluff.
