The Christmas Date by Camilla Isley

The Christmas Date
Camilla Isley

Happy Saturday to you all. today I am very excited to be part of the blog tour for this brilliant festive read from Camilla Isley. Thank you Rachel's Random Resources for inviting me to take part. 
I hope you all enjoy reading my review. 

Book Description
No one wants to be single at the holidays.
Even Little Miss Grinch, Nikki, a successful and independent woman, must face her bachelorette status at the most horrible time of the year.
December is her personal version of holly-jolly hell: a merry torture made of couples kissing at every corner, forced vacation days, and an inescapable family reunion.
And when her baby sister announces she’s engaged—to Paul, the man Nikki is secretly in love with— and that he’s spending the holidays with them, Christmas starts looking bluer than ever.
Nikki can’t possibly survive an entire week trapped home as the family’s spinster. But she has no time to meet men or to try the newest dating app, she’s too busy working as a video producer for an advertising agency.

So what’s a girl to do?

Nikki has the perfect solution: to hire a fake boyfriend.
Luckily, her job gives her access to an endless catalog of gorgeous actors to choose from.

But Nikki will soon discover that keeping business and pleasure from mixing isn’t so easy, and that she might not be immune to a little mistletoe magic. Especially not when she picked out the perfect man as her Christmas date...
A fun, festive romantic comedy with lots of bad behavior and Christmas spirit. Like a creamy hot chocolate with marshmallows, you won’t want to put this deliciously hilarious novel down. Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Sally Thorne, and Jo Watson.
First Comes Love is a series of interconnected romantic novels. However, each book in the series can be read as a standalone.

My Review
This is a romantic and funny Christmas read and perfect for getting into the festive spirit. The book has such a fantastic winter setting that just makes you want to snuggle up with a blanket and a hot chocolate. 
This book is the third book in the series however it was the first book have read in the series and I found you could easily read it as a standalone book as it will draw you in really quickly and will not want you to put it down. 
Nikki is not a fan of Christmas and is dreading the fact that she has to go home for the festive season and spend the time with her sister who seems to have her life in order which makes Nikki feel like she sone step behind. And her sister has also just dropped the bombshell that she has got engaged to Paul. Paul who is the man that Nikki has been secretly in love with for many years. This news really hits Nikki hard and she toys with the idea of not going home for Christmas until she comes up with the idea of hiring a date for the visit home to pretend to be her boyfriend and show her parents and family that she's getting on well with her life too.She decides to hire the gorgeous Diego who sounds perfect for the job and accepts the offer proposed to him. They start to get to know each other straight away as Nikki decides Diego can move I with her for a week before they head to her hometown giving them time to get comfortable around each other and work out a plan for when they head back.  How could anything go wrong?
 This book is full of love, comedy family and a strong sibling rivalry. I can completely understand the reason why Nikki feels she needs to put on an act for her family but I think its a shame that she feels this way too. Its brilliant to read about the sparks flying between Nikki and Diego and I love have naturally the story flows. 
This is the first book I have read by Camilla Isley but I am looking forward to reading more.
