My Rating: 4 Stars
Genre Holiday Romance | Enemies to Lovers
There’s nothing like finding a new holiday romance to put you into a cheerful mood when all you want to do is just get under the covers and hide! Jingle Wars is one of those books that just make you smile. You don’t even have to be a Christmas fanatic like myself to enjoy it either. There’s so much more going on within the story other than the holiday decorations and Christmas competition. This is a love story. This is a story about two people who never intended to open up to others let alone each other fall into bliss. It’s funny, charming, and depicts a magical winter wonderland in a small town. I enjoyed it immensely. Jingle Wars also has all the hallmarks of a great Christmas movie (no pun intended) 🤣 and I wouldn’t mind watching it on the big screen. It’s just a feel-good romance to unwind with! I’m glad I took a chance on this one because I almost didn’t even read it. However, the cover is so darn cute I wanted to give these new to me authors a try and I’m really glad I did because had I not I would have missed this gem. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

🎅 My favorite part of the story was seeing the heroine FINALLY stick up for herself when it came to her dad. I won’t give all the glorious details, but this was my absolute favorite thing! All too often writers will drag these types of moments out and make the final confrontation an angsty mess but that’s not the case here. Freya was a badass through and through and watching her BE the woman she wanted to be was a breath of fresh air! She’s also full of sass and takes no crap from anyone (especially her annoying neighbor) 😉
🎅 Finn is a dreamy hero and I wouldn’t mind a bearded lumberjack like him of my own (that is, if I wasn’t already married to my very own prince charming). He’s a little jaded when it comes to love but all it takes is the right one to bring him clarity and it didn’t take the entire book to do so! He also had a head on his shoulders, and I loved FINALLY seeing a hero who could ACTUALLY COMMUNICATE!
🎅 The setting is magical! I love when an author can transport me into a fictional world and both authors do just that within Jingle Wars. If I were to go on vacation to a small mountain town in the winter, I would certainly go to a place like Hollyridge!
🎅 Finally, I loved the Christmas feelings of this one. The festiveness wasn’t overdone and was just enough to FEEL like Christmas without being all in your face about it. It was perfect!

🎅 I didn’t really find the book funny. Sure, there were a few scenes that had me giggling but overall, I wouldn’t consider this a romcom that makes readers laugh out loud. Rather, it’s a subtle romcom with a few giggle inducing parts.

Jingle Wars is a fun, cozy, and adorable Christmas themed romance and reading it was a pure delight! I loved getting to know these characters and am very much looking forward to the next book as it will feature two of the secondary characters from this one that I loved! That should be a FUN romance to watch!
