This sweet, funny holiday romance from the author of Romeo And What's Her Name features cute boys, plenty of rom-com mishaps, and a determined heroine readers are certain to fall for.

Charlotte "Charlie" Donovan knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He's a star athlete, a National Honor Society member, and the most popular guy in school. Plus he contributes to the school paper, where Charlie is a co-editor. Basically, he's exactly the type of guy Charlie's looking for. The only problem is-he barely knows she exists.

But Charlie has a plan: rig the paper's Secret Santa and win his heart with the perfect gift. The catch? She has no idea what to get him. Enter J.D. Ortiz-Teo's cousin, and possibly the most annoying person on the planet. He's easy going, laid back, disorganized, and spontaneous-the exact opposite
of Charlie (and Teo). But he knows 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?

Shani Petroff's newest young adult comedy of errors, My New Crush Gave to Me, is the perfect read for those searching for some love and laughter along with their holiday spirit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Christmas is in the Air~ There's nothing like a quick and warm read to get you into a festive mood! My New Crush Gave to Me was fun in all the ways I expected since I had the pleasure of reading the author's debut novel. Not only does the cover scream winter holidays but the Christmas activities in the book gave all the festive feels. Furthermore the caroling and Secret Santa games paved the way to a cutesy love story. It was slow burn and super adorable to watch the characters realize their feelings. I love the story but I will confess in the beginning I was extremely irritated with Charlie. I'm a planner myself so I understood how she felt like she was on the right path following her plan, however, as the story went on, it was painfully obvious Charlie should reconsider her choices. More often than not she found herself wavering from her plan in addition to having to convince herself of what she wants. It took her long enough but I was so relieved to see she wasn't completely ignorant of her feelings. J.D. Ortiz. I will remember that name. J.D. is one of the sweetest boys I've ever met in books. He acts all casual and clownish when really he's perceptive and smart. Did I mention he's sweet as hell? For all the reasons Charlie disliked J.D. for he really fit the bill in what she looked for in a boyfriend. I can't talk about My New Crush Gave to Me without praising Charlie's best friend. Morgan is the best of best friends. She doesn't push Charlie instead gave her all the quiet support and strength she could. Even busy with her own life Morgan never failed to be on Charlie's side. Fast and easy, My New Crush Gave to Me is the perfect story for this holiday season. Just imagine sitting by the fireplace sipping on a mug of hot chocolate with this cozy read in hand ;)
