Ex-Mas by Kate Brian


Summary: Seventeen-year-old Lila Beckwith's parents just left for vacation, and Lila's all set to throw the holiday party of the season. But when her Christmas-obsessed little brother, Cooper, discovers that global warming is melting the North Pole, he and his best friend, Tyler, take off on a runaway mission to save Santa.

Lila has to get Cooper safely home before her parents get back on Christmas Eve. But the only person who can help her is Tyler's older brother, Beau -- a.k.a. Lila's musician, anti-everything ex-boyfriend.

It'll take more than a Christmas miracle for Lila and Beau to overcome their differences and find their fugitive brothers. But could a journey destined for disaster help these polar opposites fall in love...all over again?













My Thoughts: Another great book from Kate Brian. I read Megan Meade's Guide To The McGowan Boys and loved it! This one is just as good, if not better! We are introduced to Lila who has it all, college boyfriend, popular best friend, and all the guys want her and the girl's want to be her! We also are introduced to her annoying little brother Cooper. Well, things go down and Cooper thinks he needs to save Santa so Cooper and his friend Tyler take off to save Santa! Lila gets tangled up with Tyler's older brother Beau aka Lila's ex boyfriend and they have to go after them! Of course I liked Beau from the first mention. He was my kind of guy. The two youngsters hopped on a bus so now Lila and Beau have to drive 7 hours to find them! This book was a bit predictable in places but I still loved it! And the things I wanted to happen, some of them did happen! While others totally blew me away!!! This is the book to read around Christmas time, or even while the weather is still cold! Perfect book for this time of year!

Overall: I loved it! Awesome book! It left me with a big grin on my face saying, awwwwww. I'm so happy! Rush to the store and buy this now! While you at it, also pick up Megan Meade's Guide To The McGowan Boys!

Cover: This cover is amazing! I love it! I love the candy cane and its even shiny and pretty in person!
