”My heart beats a slower rhythm, and it’s easier to breathe. It’s beautiful this made-up relationship.”

The heroine Jules Stone is simply wonderful. She is: weird, desperate, funny, exagge

My Review:

** ARC Provided for an honest review**

"Well then..." I clear my throat once. "You are a fantastic actor," I say, breathless, and emotionally drugged up on Mr. Sexdorable."

I feel like Santa came a little early for me! I have loved everything of Brittainy's that I have read so far :)

5 Sexdorable, perfect stars!!

Our Totally, Ridiculous, Made-Up Christmas Relationship is told in the two main characters' POV, Kayden Reece and Jules Stone.  Both of them come from dysfunctional

Our Totally, Ridiculous, Made-up Christmas Relationship is absolute perfection! Brittainy C. Cherry delivers one of the most enjoyable books of 2013 with this novella, and it’s a definite must read for me.

I didn’t know what to expect when I got my hands on this ARC, but I was totally sold on the title before I even opened the book. This lighthearted story is the perfect anecdote to any book hangover. It’s a quick read that had me laughing and left me with a goofy smile. In my opinion, it’s often

LOVED this! This is one of my favorites of 2013.

I don't know if it this caught me in just the right mood, but I'd been looking for a heart-warming quick read for the holidays, and this was absolutely perfect!
Brittainy Cherry made me laugh to the point of snorting in this wonderful, light, cheery, awkward, and sexdorable story!
The pace, dialogue, wit, and plot was perfect - and it shows how well the author crafted this story, because it's tricky to get the reader to care about characters in a nov

5 stars for sure. LOVED this story!!! The very first paragraph had me laughing. Read the first page and thought I'm gonna love this one, and I did. I really enjoyed all of it. The story starts with Kayden going over to his parents house during the holidays. He has one of those families that make you not want to go visit. His dad does not approve of his choice of employment. His brother (the lawyer) does not speak to him over so

I absolutely adore stories that are romantic AND funny! This one was just too perfect. In a good way!

Jules, the heroine of the novella, reminded me of myself. She is witty, romantic and an emotional wreck. (Yep, that's me). She loves too much and falls too fast. Unfortunately, as we find out, that is her downfall. Just when she thought she was settling down for good, her boyfriend, Richard proved just how naive she is. Enter SEXDORABLE Kayden.

OHMIGOD, this man is just too much for words! Kayde

Such a sweet and funny Christmas story!

I'm not really one for Christmas Romance stories but this story really threw me for a loop. I loved the storyline and the POV's from the main characters Kayden Reece and Jules Stone.

Both Kayden and Jules really have had some hard knocks coming at them lately, and suddenly it all seems to change in a blink of an eye. After accidently meeting Kayden offers to help Jules out by going home with her at Christmas pretending that he is her boyfriend (you will have
Jaime Fiction Fangirls Book Review

Awe I'm sad that this story ended. It was so sweet and funny. I really just love Kayden and Jules. Yes, it was sort of an insta-love but done in a really good way.

They were made for each other really. Both of them being the "black sheep" of their families and therefore giving them an instant connection/bond.

Kayden's dad really pissed me off but Jules's family drove me bat shit crazy. I mean really she is just supposed to be cool with her sister and ex-boyfriend AND their daughter?

Gorgeous blonde Julie is a walking neon light sign flashing “damaged goods” who is anxiously awaiting her Christmas trip with her ‘boyfriend’ Richard to visit her parents for the first time at their lodge in Wisconsin. This is the first time she has been there since the blowup with her sister and ex-boyfriend, Danny. Despite what her friends at the retirement home or her friends at the acting agency say, Richard is finally
Broadway Girl  Book Reviews (Beth Lattanzi)
This was such an adorable Christmas story! Maybe I should call it Chrisdorable! It reminded me of a mix between two movies… Holiday’s In Handcuffs and The Wedding Date.

Jules thinks her boyfriend, Richard, is going to propose for her while visiting her parents for Christmas. Unfortunately the worst possible thing happens…. He actually dumps her and wants to propose to his other girlfriend. WHAT??!!!! Talk about CRAZY! So, now Jules is left going to go visit her family alone yet again which isn’t

Perfect Little Holiday Read. Sweet and Sexdorable! LOVED Kayden!!! Thank you Brittainy C. Cherry! You did it again. You showed us that we all have totally ridiculous screwed up families, but that is okay. That someone can still LOVE us no matter how weird and screwed up we feel. That it is even NORMAL. That is the beauty of this. What is Normal anyway, there is no normal. LOVE can find a way REGARDLESS, and sometimes we need to be reminded of that!

Laugh out loud funny at times. I stayed up until 3:00 am to finish this book. I was worried that I was gonna wake my hubby up a few times I was laughing so hard.

Kayden is sexdorable. This is the word the Jules made up for him the first time she saw him at the agency she works at. He's there looking to get hired so that he can get into acting and just be a bartender. Unfortunately due tot he fact that he has no experience he doesn't

Our Totally, Ridiculous, Made-up Christmas Relationship was an entertaining and fun read that draws you in and leaves you feeling warm and happy. I found myself relating to the characters and their situations and really enjoyed the story. Its a good, short read that I couldn't put down and I think it would put a smile on anyone's face.

I can't wait for the next release from Brittainy!

Loved it!- some semi mini spoilers

Loved this book! Then first chapter had me hooked! Kayden and Jules both come from dysfunctional families. When Jules irrationally hollers out the need of a boyfriend for the weekend in the middle of the lobby at an agency office, I fell in love with her character. She is completely neurotic and yet totally loveable. Hayden appears to be a playing but it turns out he is super sweet and just hurting from his past.

What could make a fake relationship book even better? Having it take place during Christmas, of course! This was my first Brittainy Cherry book, but I guarantee it won't be my last. Our Totally, Ridiculous, Made-Up Christmas Relationship was so fun and delivered the feels I wanted so badly. If you're looking for a holiday romance to make you smile and swoon, put this one on your list.
