I loved the friends-to-lovers trope and how it was inevitable the characters would fall in love.  Their backstory was sweet.  The way music, particularly playlists, featured made me think back to my own prowess at creating perfect playlists.  I related more to Nick than Noel.  Nick's family made me want to be part of it.  This open-door Christmas rom-com was spicier than my usual read.  My only complaint was not enough holiday focus.

From the publisher:
Nick Winter is just out of the military, and his Christmas homecoming is not going as planned. What was supposed to be a memorable holiday with his long-time girlfriend goes sour when he learns she cheated on him while he was stationed overseas. At least Nick can rely on his usual shift at the family Christmas tree farm with his best friend, Noel Carter, and her endless supply of Christmas tunes to lift his spirits. A night of fun together is just what he needs to forget about his ex.

But then they kiss. And it feels...so right.

If Noel can turn Nick’s Blue Christmas merry and bright, this might be the last Christmas Nick spends with a broken heart. This year, they’ll be Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree as a couple―as long as Nick’s ex doesn’t go standing under any mistletoe.
