The Twelve Dates of Christmas - Catherine Hapka


Lexi's feeling a little holidazed this winter....

Lexi's been going out with Cameron for way too long. Sure, he's a nice guy, but there's a spark missing between them. So she comes up with the perfect plan: get him to fall for another girl so she'll be free -- and guilt-free, too.

But when Lexi sees Cameron looking awfully cozy with Jaylene, her heart melts, especially when her budding psychologist best friend tells her that once a new couple has gone out a dozen times, their relationship is pretty much set. Cameron's twelfth date with Jaylene -- the Christmas Ball -- is coming up. Can Lexi find a way to rekindle her relationship with Cameron in the (saint) nick of time?


This book was just like all the other Simon Rom-Coms. They're very predictable, and they always, always have a happy ending. That was fine with me, though. It was nice to read a happy book after reading so many serious books.

This was a good Simon Rom-Com. It's not one of my favorites, but it was a pretty good one. I loved reading about all the crazy ideas Lexi was thinking up to first get rid of Cam and then to get him back.

If you are looking for a good, quick, exam-week read, then this is a good one to get. You don't have to put much thought into the story while your reading. It's a perfect read for those spare minutes when you've finished your exam and you're just waiting for the bell to ring. :)

Good Review! I was just curious, but what are some of your favorites Simon Rom-Coms?

Kaylee; Hmm. I haven't read too many of them, but my favorites are Royally Jacked and Spin Control by Niki Burnham and The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols.

I've never read any Simon Rom-Coms or HarperTeen ones....the Harper ones always look so good!

I have this one. I was hoping to read it during Winter Break, but didn't get around to it. Maybe later this year...
