Callum and Lexie are perfect for each other – at least, that’s what everyone tells them. But they’re just good friends, aren’t they? And neither wants to ruin the solid friendship that’s treated them so well since university.
But when an old school friend of Callum’s asks Lexie for a date, and passions overflow on a work night out, could it be the trigger to show each of them what they have been missing out on all this time?
With twelve weeks until Christmas, that’s a lot of opportunity for romance – and for misunderstandings…
Callum and Lexie are best friends. They spend most of their time together when they’re not working and are even each others ‘fake’ girlfriend/boyfriend. Their friends think it’s funny because they’re absolutely perfect for each other, but they both agree they’re just friends. But are they? When Callum’s other best friend, Mark meets Lexie and asks her out for a date, unexpected feelings start to rise. But will they realise that they really are perfect for each other or will the friendship they’ve had for so long come to an end?
This a short little uplifting romance. I absolutely loved Lexie – she’s a wonderful character and I thoroughly enjoyed it when she let her hair down! It’s clear how she feels about Callum but she’s just not able to see it. Callum on the other hand is a bit of a jack the lad. Lexie keeps him in line, making sure he doesn’t turn into a complete a*sehole!
The will they/won’t they will keep you on your toes….and I’m not saying anything else!
It’s well written and alternates between Lexie’s point of view and Callum’s so you can see what they’re both thinking. It’s full of Christmas parties and celebrations and will make you want to get your gladrags on and hit those festive do’s!!
So if you’re looking for a short, fun, uplifting festive romance then this is for you!
about the author
Jennifer C. Wilson stalks dead people (usually monarchs, mostly Mary Queen of Scots and Richard III). Inspired by childhood visits to as many castles and historical sites her parents could find, and losing herself in their stories (not to mention quite often the castles themselves!), at least now her daydreams make it onto the page.
After returning to the north-east of England for work, she joined a creative writing class, and has been filling notebooks ever since. Jennifer won North Tyneside Libraries’ Story Tyne short story competition in 2014, and in 2015, her debut novel, Kindred Spirits: Tower of London was published by Crooked Cat Books. The full series was re-released by Darkstroke in January 2020.
Jennifer is a founder and host of the award-winning North Tyneside Writers’ Circle, and has been running writing workshops in North Tyneside since 2015. She also publishes historical fiction novels with Ocelot Press. She lives in Whitley Bay, and is very proud of her two-inch view of the North Sea.
