I went into this one ready to be charmed by the story and I was. Assless chaps are not mentioned frequently enough in what I’m reading. Slice Slice Baby needs to be a thing in real life.
I loved Nolan and Bee. I really adored Teddy and the fact that he was a good guy in a mostly shitty business. I loved that Nolan had known and been best friends with his, since early childhood. I loved that Bee’s moms were so encouraging and supportive and loving.
I loved that Bee was an adult film star and I really liked that Bee’s sexual past was brought up without fanfare; I really believe that women are still being casually or aggressively shamed far too often for having the gall to have sex with as many partners of her choosing. Growing up I remember learning that sex was something that must be shameful and bad since no one ever talked to me about it. Ever. All I was actually told was not to get pregnant because if I did, I’d be forced into undergoing a termination. (thankfully I discovered Pamela Des Barres’ awesomely fun memoir, I’m With the Band in 1988 and am as sex positive as I am today thanks to Des Barres’ joy in sharing her past with readers.).
A Merry Little Meet Cute is an extremely enjoyable Christmas-themed mug of spicy hot chocolate on a cold day. Or whenever you enjoy reading Christmassy fiction 🙂
I adored this novel and plan on reading more of the authors’ solo works.
