Nick Winter is just out of the military, and his Christmas homecoming is not going as planned. What was supposed to be a memorable holiday with his long-time girlfriend goes sour when he learns she cheated on him while he was stationed overseas. At least Nick can rely on his usual shift at the family Christmas tree farm with his best friend, Noel Carter, and her endless supply of Christmas tunes to lift his spirits. A night of fun together is just what he needs to forget about his ex.
But then they kiss. And it feels...so right.
If Noel can turn Nick's Blue Christmas merry and bright, this might be the last Christmas Nick spends with a broken heart. This year, they'll be Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree as a couple—as long as Nick's ex doesn't go standing under any mistletoe.
I feel like the story blurb for this book is a little misleading. As it turns out, Noel's history is much more complicated than it appears. I wasn't her biggest fan, to be honest. Nick and Noel have been friends for ever, though. And now that Nick is home for good, doors are opening they never expected. As with most friends-to-lovers stories, I find the tension a little difficult to sustain. There was some great banter though, and some fun side characters that kept me entertained.
History. Chemistry. All the subjects she'd hated in high school were coming back to haunt her now.
