Danny Garland is so out of Holly’s league. And her family is only back in North Pole, Minnesota, long enough to sell Grandma’s house and say “Merry Christmas.” So telling her basketball-star, too-hot-to-be-real long-time crush that she’d like to kiss him under the mistletoe just isn’t going to happen.
And now he’s asked out her cousin, Elda. Elda is a mess at flirting, so when she begs Holly to intervene, she does. Holly helps her flirt with him over text. And then again. And again. Now she’s stuck texting him as her cousin, and Elda is the one going on the date. Holly thought she could settle for just conversation with Danny, but talking with him is some kind of magic. He’s got the perfect comebacks, she makes him laugh, they text until everyone is asleep.
She just can’t ever tell him it’s her he’s really texting.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book has hot texts, gingerbread wars, and a slow-burn romance that could melt a Minnesota winter.
It’s that time of year. The weather is getting cooler and I can’t stop myself from diving into the holiday reads. This time, I took a bit of a departure and switched things up with a YA read. When I came across Approximately Yours, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the synopsis of the story and just knew I’d have to dive in.
Approximately Yours was an absolutely cute read and while I do think this book could be enjoyed by any age group, I do think that leans more to the younger side of YA. With festive names and holiday details around each corner, there is no denying that this is one festive book. Danny is one of the sweetest guys ever and is getting over a broken heart. When he asks Elda out, he has no idea that Holly is the one really texting him. Holly and Danny’s banter is entertaining and you can feel the chemistry between the two of them. I loved watching the two of them get to know one another and couldn’t wait to see what would happen when Danny realizes he hasn’t been talking to Elda this whole time….It is the perfect YA set-up.
If you’re looking for a book that is sweet, light, festive and totally YA, look no further.
