Trope: Holiday Romance, Small Town, Real Body Rep, Hollywood,
Merry Little is a very cute and spicy Holiday Themed Romance. It has very funny moments that are sure to even melt the Grinch’s heart. There are so many great ideas in this story. I loved the ideas of a town where everyone films holiday movies at. The characters in this book are funny and very well developed. I really struggled with their relationship. I did not buy into it. It was not the over the top grand Holiday Romance I wanted or needed.
I will be honest holiday romances need to be perfection for me to love them. This one has some create Christmas cozy vibes but even the cuteness and the spice could not save this for me. It was a struggle for me to get through this book. I feel like the pacing was off and was not a cohesive as I would expect from these two accomplished writers.
The Fat Rep in this book was very well done. I have really enjoyed Julie Murphy’s previous books and knew that she would do Fat Rep Right!
I think what fell apart for me was that a lot of the scenes were just awkward. There seemed to lack a flow in storyline and causing the characters to feel one dimensional. I wanted more.
Overall it is a cute story but I just did not love it.
