A Very Complicated Christmas by Melissa Baldwin: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Get ready for a rollercoaster holiday season, full of laughter, love, and unexpected surprises.

The holidays are supposed to be fun, right? Parties, shopping, hot cocoa, festive sweaters, and celebrations with family and friends—it all sounds like a dream. But this year feels different and complicated, at least for me, Lucy Ferguson.
My brother's spontaneous engagement has thrown my family into a tailspin, and to add to the chaos, the return of Chase Anderson, the local hockey star, has brought a whole new set of dilemmas into my life. I keep telling myself I'm not attracted to Chase, but my heart seems to disagree.
As I navigate through the confusion and conflicting emotions, I can't deny there's something about him that draws me in, though I try to convince myself otherwise. However, fate has other plans—he's my brother’s best friend, and that unspoken rule of not dating him stands firmly in our way.
To make matters even more frustrating, life at the office continues to throw me into awkward situations I never anticipated.
Could this chaotic holiday season be the key to unlocking something even better than I've ever dared to dream of? Find out in this heartwarming romantic comedy, where the magic of the season might just overcome life's bewildering moments.

Talk about an appropriate title! A very complicated Christmas indeed! There was a LOT going on in this story--- Lucy is dealing with some drama at her office, the upcoming wedding of her brother and sister-in-law to be who seems to have it out for her... and the return of her brother's best friend and some unexpected chemistry between them... despite everyone's insistence to set him up with the maid of honor. Phew... that's a lot, right? I've got to admit that sometimes when a story has THIS much going on, it can be a little bit much for me... but I found I really enjoyed this one just as it was. Perhaps because the sheer craziness of it all was kind of the point of the story! I found myself smiling so much throughout this story... and so much of that was definitely the chemistry between Chase and Lucy. Oh my goodness, I really just couldn't get enough of these two together! And Chase's newfound love of Costco? So much more charming than it should be... but I loved it! 

And of course, there was lots of holiday cheer too! This was a fast paced read and perfect if you're looking for some fun holiday reading! I definitely enjoyed every minute of it! 

A Very Complicated Christmas is a closed-door romance with kisses only. There is a handful of minor language throughout the story as well.
