My New Crush Gave to Me
Charlotte Charlie Donovan knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He's the school's star athlete, in the National Honor Society, invited to every party, contributes to the school paper (where Charlie is co-editor), and is about to be featured as One to Watch in a teen magazine basically, he's exactly the type of guy Charlie s meant to be with. The only problem he barely knows she exists.
But Charlie is determined to be Teo's date to the Christmas ball. And she has a plan: To rig the paper's Secret Santa so that she can win his heart with five perfect gifts. But to do that she needs help. Enter J.D. Ortiz Teo s cousin, and possibly the most annoying person on the planet. He's easy going, laid back, unorganized, spontaneous, and makes a joke out of everything the exact opposite of Charlie (and Teo). But he's willing to provide insight into what Teo wants, so she s stuck with him.
Yet, the more time Charlie spends with J.D., the more she starts to wonder: Does she really know what, or rather who, she wants for Christmas?
My thoughts: I wasn't so sure about this book and what I thought about it when I first started it, since I found it hard to relate to Charlie in the beginning. But, I liked where the story went and how she grew as a character. I also really liked the romance in the story, since it shows that love is more than butterflies and romance, but needs friendship and variety to help it thrive. I loved the side characters and thoroughly enjoyed this story!
I received this book through Netgalley, in exchange for my honest review.
