The girl who loves Christmas falls for the Grinch—it’s a Christmas miracle.
What started as a dumpster fire of a blind date turns into a deal.
In truth, it probably didn’t help that I showed up dressed like an elf but that’s a story for another time. Our start was rocky at best which is why it’s so frustrating that I can’t stop thinking about his sexy British accent. Or the way his chest and arms fill out his suit. Or his perfect hair with that single streak of grey at the front.
Santa likes lists and so do I, so here’s all the reasons why Andrew and I aren’t right for each other:
He’s my brother’s best friend
He’s the biggest grump I’ve ever met.
He hates Christmas.
That last one is big for a girl like me who thinks that the entire month of December should be a national holiday. So, when he calls for my help in planning his firm’s holiday party, I can’t pass up the opportunity to grow my small business. Bonus, we make a deal, and he agrees to attend three holiday events with me so I can make him fall in love with Christmas. As if I’d pass up an opportunity to make a Grinch’s heart grow three times its size.
It isn’t long until I discover Andrew has a very real reason to hate Christmas and I start to see him in a different light. That’s when the Christmas miracle begins.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A Christmas miracle saves a very bad first date in this exciting romance from Piper Rayne. When event planner and avowed Christmas nut MacKenzie meets handsome British lawyer Andrew, she’s put off by his Scrooge-like attitude toward the holidays. But when Andrew realizes that organizing his office holiday party will impress his boss, he turns to MacKenzie for help…and then some. We love how Rayne pulls us into both characters’ points of view and shows us their evolution. From awkwardly skating into each other to talking about their pasts over hot cocoa, the pair seemed destined to kindle their undeniable spark. Single and Ready to Jingle is a perfect read for a chilly winter night.

Single and Ready to Jingle by Piper Rayne is Andrew and MacKenzie's story.
An entertaining story that warms you up and puts you in the festive spirit.
Andrew and MacKenzie's blind date goes horribly and they would both be happy if they did not run into each other again any time soon. Andrew needs help with his company's Christmas party and the only person he can think of is Christmas loving MacKenzie. MacKenzie agrees to help as long as Andrew agrees to go on three Christmas themed dates.
Andrew and MacKenzie are complete opposites in every way. He is a scrooge and she twinkles like Christmas lights. I love the banter and slow build of their relationship. I enjoyed all of the festive activities and can not wait for the holiday season now.
Audio... John Lane and Carly Robins (CJ Bloom) both did an amazing job of bringing the characters and the story to life as well as bringing alive the holiday spirit.
