    Hmm, so how to review two books by two different authors in one actual book Well, the two stories go together very well The editors or publishers did a fantastic job of matching these up Both are young adult romantic comedies and take place in the winter time, which was perfect for me to read on the coldest days we ve had in Florida in awhile No snow to go along with it, but I had my fair share of hot chocolate while reading Note that the description of the book that I pulled from the pu Hmm, so how to review two books by two different authors in one actual book Well, the two stories go together very well The editors or publishers did a fantastic job of matching these up Both are young adult romantic comedies and take place in the winter time, which was perfect for me to read on the coldest days we ve had in Florida in awhile No snow to go along with it, but I had my fair share of hot chocolate while reading Note that the description of the book that I pulled from the publisher is actually backwards from how the stories appear in the book The first story is by Jennifer Echols and is titled The Ex Games I think that a lot of teens will be able to relate to the characters in this book Both Hayden and Nick and their friends do some silly things and react without thinking all things through, so I often wanted to tell them to chill out and calm down, take a step back Then I realized, I ve been there, I was totally like that when I was younger if not sometimes still Echols definitely has a grasp on the mind of a teenager, it s so realistic that the characters can be annoying and lovable all at once She had me rooting for Hayden to have love over and over again as things went wrong time and time again.As for the comedy bit, I m not sure if I ve ever read a romantic comedy I know I ve seen a lot of the movies with that label, but books I can t think of one This certainly changed that I loved that it was a light hearted read and the sarcastic nature of the characters was right on tune for me This is definitely a good break from all of the gloom and doom of dystopian stories that I ve been reading as of late I m a believer in the romantic comedy genre now and I seebooks by Jennifer Echols in my future.The second story is by Catherine Hapka and is titled The Twelve Dates of Christmas This story is a bit shorter than the first one, but no less enjoyable I flew through reading it one night I must say that even though I knew it was a romantic comedy and that those types of stories at least in movies usually end happily, I wasn t sure where this one was going to go Lexi s devious ways, with the best interest of her and her ex current maybe boyfriend, Cameron, at heart, continually backfire and it seems like Cameron s ok with that.Lexi s best friend, Allie, is a highlight in the story as she comes up with strange theories referring to romance and one s love life She s a little kooky with all of her theories, but you get the idea that she believes in all well most of them and is fully committed to making sure they work out While that is all entertaining on its own, it doesn t take away from the real story of Lexi trying to figure out if she wants to push Cameron away or work towards luring him back This is definitely a story of lesson learned in a completely non preachy, barely there way that makes it totally enjoyable Reviewed by Jessica for Book Sake
