About this deal

The heroine Bee is a curvy adult film/porn star, and she’s been cast into a very clean, Hallmark-like Christmas movie. A Merry Little Meet Cute does fall squarely into the “rom-com” genre however (bearing in mind that humour is subjective not universal). His mother struggles with her mental health, and he didn’t want to leave her alone with his younger sister Maddie, who is still in school, but filming Duke the Halls is his first step in rehabilitating his reputation and proving he can be a responsible performer. The juxtaposition of the adult film industry insiders working on the Hope Channel movie offers lots of room for hijinks, but there is also a respect for all lifestyles.

I had a good time with this, although you definitely have to suspend your disbelief and just go with the ridiculous things that happen. These characters didn't feel like they had adult problems and the problems that did feel adult had non-adult reactions to them (I think they are supposed to be mid to late twenties? When things start to heat up on set, Bee and Nolan must keep this steamy affair under wraps, or risk ruining everything .From the moment I saw the bubble gum pink cover and read the synopsis of Julie Murphy and Sierra Simone’s new Holiday Rom-Com. Look, is it ridiculous that they believe they're going to get away with making a completely chaste Christmas movie without a single person recognizing Bee from her (quite popular! It didn't put me off and I did finish it but the fact it wasn't what I thought it was going to be, kind of put a damper on my enjoyment while reading it. The hero is a curvy adult film star and the hero is a former boy band member trying to fix his reputation.

Though it all becomes worthwhile when she discovers her co-star is none other than childhood crush Nolan Shaw, an ex-boy band member in desperate need of career rehab. However, there were scenes that would make listening to this book awkward in public, so that’s something to keep in mind as you listen. Also, I feel like every conflict could've either been avoided or was brought on by the dumb actions of the main characters (the picture in the strip club? My major criticism of the book is that despite this, Bee ends up not doing more sex work afterwards.

So now she has to work as Bianca to make sure that the people in charge of this movie don’t know what she really does for a living. It might’ve taken approximately a month and a half to get to me from the other side of the world, but it was worth every day waiting to hold it! I really enjoyed the side characters as well and would love to see them in their own books in the future!

I don't usually read Christmas romance books but I've been wanting to read more contemporary books rather than romantasy; that also might be why I was surprised by the plot. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Sebastian York is someone i’ve listened to and loved many times in the past and this was no exception!

Besides the fact I can read these sentences coherently, I don’t like a single thing about this story. Bee shook her head, dropping her hand from my face so fast you’d think my jaw was made of exploding phone batteries. A lot of workers from the adult film industry end up working on the holiday film and some funny moments happen.
