A Look at Boyfriend Wanted for Christmas, one of the stories in Love, Christmas 2, Movies You Love, Boxed Set

LC2Good morning. Despite the fact that decorations in my neighborhood are set on the macabre with Halloween looming large on the calendar,  I’m looking beyond them to my favorite season of the year, Christmas.

On Tuesday, Love, Christmas 2 was released and while I haven’t had time to read the entire collection, I’ve scanned a few stories. There’s one that is a rewrite of It’s A Wonderful life that i plan to get to soon, but today, I’m going to focus on one that I have read and absolutely adored.

Boyfriend Wanted for ChristmasThe premise: 

Thirty-three-year-old librarian Andrea Sachse doesn’t have the time or skills to date. No man can ever live up to her dreamy book boyfriends, so why bother? But with her parents looking more desperate each time she shows up solo for their annual Christmas party, this year she’s determined to find herself a boyfriend by any means—fair or foul.

My Review:

I loved the idea of this story the moment I read it. Who among us hasn’t gone to extraordinary lengths to try and please our parents? With the help of her best friend, Angie, Andrea reluctantly agrees to try to find herself a date for her parents’ party by using an online dating site. With only a week to accomplish the deed, she doesn’t have time to be too picky.

And that’s when the fun starts. While i imagine there are probably a lot of decent lonely people who successfully using online dating, I can also imagine there are a lot of less that ideal people on them as well and the ones Andrea meets made me laugh out loud. As they say, out of the frying pan into the fire, but don’t despair. She does find Mr. Right at the end, and in the last place she would’ve thought to look.

This is a light-hearted, feel-good romance that will leave a smile on your face long after you’ve finished it.
