Read this for 12 Tasks of the Festive Season:
Task the Eighth: The Movie Ticket:
- Read a book that has been adapted to a holiday movie.
This book was made into the movie 12 Men of Christmas. I caught it on tv a couple years ago and instantly thought of it for this challenge, correctly guessing it started off as a book. This may make me a turncoat but I liked the movie better :/ However, it starred Kristin Chenoweth and had Anna Chlumsky, who I now love from Veep, so it was ahead of the ...more
Let me just start by stating that I love this book. I need to get all of my gushing out of the way. I have nothing but praises to dish out because this is exactly what I expect in my romance books. Dating Mr. December is a wonderfully, well written love story.

Seriously, don't read this if you are over 18 years old. The mood swings and manufactured drama are just not understandable unless you're still in high school. Unfortunately, it's written abo ...more
Decent Exposure is a light romantic read for a rainy afternoon, with fabulous descriptions of life in a tight-knit Lake District community and a very sexy male lead.

This was actually better than I expected. The author does a decent job of creating characters with some depth. There was some mis-communication here, but for the most part I thought the misunderstanding had a reasonable foundation. Will's reluctance to talk about his motives or his past were already well-established before Emma arrived on the scene. Emma's inability to trust was understandable given her past history and Will's reputation.

Sıkılmadan çabucak okuyacağınız hoş romantik bir komedi. Benim hoşuma gitti kitap özelliklede yazarın ilk çıkan kitabı olduğunu düşünürsek gayet iyiydi.

All in all I enjoyed this romantic Christmas book.
Decent Exposure is an archetypal RomCom: protagonists who don't get along, thrown together in an outrageous project, physical sparks fly, some angst thrown in for good measure in between, and a happy ending. It started out funnier but it made way for romantic fluff.
The hero in this book is absolutely wonderful, from everything I read I have ended up with a mental picture of Mr Perfect. But, like everyone, he does have his flaws.
A great read for lovers of passionate romance.
Then I did some research,because this was too freaky ...more

So. With that said, this wasn't a bad chick-lit/romance novel. I enjoyed it more than most, until closer to the end when it got extremely sappy. That is when the woman and the man are bo ...more
