Ex-Mas A Love/Hate Story by Kate Brian

Back Cover: Seventeen-year-old Lila Beckwith's parents just left for vacation and Lila's all set to throw the holiday party of the season. But when her Christmas-obsessed little brother, Cooper, discovers that global warming is melting the North Pole, he and his best friend, Tyler, take off on a runaway mission to save Santa. Lila has to get Cooper safely home before her parents get back on Christmas Eve. But the only person who can help her is Tyler's older brother, Beau- a.k.a. Lila's musician, anti-everything ex-boyfriend. It'll take more than a Christmas miracle for Lila and Beau to overcome their differences and find their fugitive brothers. But could a journey destined for disaster help these polar opposites fall in love all over again? This was good, but def not one of my favs by Kate Brian, because I am definitely in love with the private and privilege series, but anyways. I do think it was something different, even though it's a Christmas book, it doesn't focus on Christmas, as much as the journey Lila takes with the ex she thinks she hates to find her little brother who ruined her plans and also thinks she hates, but in the end those two and her parents are the ones who she loves the most. And that's a good ending. Because of course the college boyfriend cheats on the high school girlfriend. And it's like CArly said duh how could she not think that? Well then why the freak were you still dating him then? But ya know, it took a lot for her to figure out that she still really did love Beau, and I like that the guy she loves ends up not being the popular jock guy or whatever, but someone different and someone that she actually connects with. Who knows what really goes on in high school with relationships like that, I know I found my perfect guy though! :] I also love the cover! The green is really pretty and the candy canes are cool feeling haha. But still a good read, just not as magnificent as some others she's written.
