Taking a Christmas cruise with her two cousins from hell isn’t Holly’s idea of a good time. And when seasickness forces her into an open suite, she’s pepper-sprayed by a gorgeous guy called Nick. But when Holly makes her exit, she’s greeted by a horde of screaming teenage fans. Because Nick happens to be Dominic Wyatt, drummer for one of the hottest bands in America. Suddenly rumours are swirling and Holly’s face is plastered all over the Internet. The band can’t risk a scandal destroying their family-friendly image, so Dominic convinces Holly to be his fake girlfriend – just for two weeks. How bad could it be to be “fauxmantically” involved with a cute rock star? She’s about to find out…
Decked With Holly is a cute festive read. It’s not got the most original or stand out storyline, but it is incredibly cute. The characters are quite standard for this sort of book. You’ve got the seemingly unobtainable rock star, the plain girl who isn’t stick thin and her horrible aunt and step-sisters. What stands out with Decked With Holly is the writing style. Marni Bates writes in such a way that you can’t help but keep reading.
There’s no insta-love in this story, which is refreshing in Young Adult books. Of course, there is an attraction to Nick for Holly, but it never really seems forced. I thought it was great how they didn’t initially get on. I loved their banter with one another, but at other times, I really wanted to tell them to get on with it! I loved reading how their relationship developed over time.
I could totally tell where this story was going, however that didn’t affect my opinion of the book. It was funny, well written, sweet, festive read which is perfect for this time of year! I’m definitely glad I picked it up. If you ever want a quick, contemporary, Young Adult read then this book might be perfect for you!
Would I recommend it?:
A little predictable, but quick, enjoyable and easy to read!

I’m trying to squeeze in some Christmas reads, so in between bigger reads I’m slotting in and writing reviews for festive reads! This was a cutesy short novella. My review has already been published. You can find it HERE.

It’s time for another festive, short read. This book was picked for me to read by my friend Luna from Luna’s Little Library. It looks like another cute festive read!
