You’re a Mean One, Matthew Prince – Publishing 2022
“Bring a little joy to the world?
Not today, Santa.
Matthew Prince is young, rich, and thoroughly spoiled. So what if his parents barely remember he exists and the press is totally obsessed with him? He’s on top of the world. But one major PR misstep later, and Matthew is cut off and shipped away to spend the holidays in his grandparents’ charming small town hellscape. Population: who cares?
It’s bad enough he’s stuck in some festive winter wonderland—it’s even worse that he has to share space with Hector Martinez, an obnoxiously attractive local who’s unimpressed with anything and everything Matthew does.
Just when it looks like the holiday season is bringing nothing but heated squabbles, the charity gala loses its coordinator and Matthew steps in as a saintly act to get home early on good behavior…with Hector as his maddening plus-one. But even a Grinch can’t resist the unexpected joy of found family, and in the end, the forced proximity and infectious holiday cheer might be enough to make a lonely Prince’s heart grow three sizes this year.” – Goodreads

I started this for #HollyJollyJuly but didn’t finish it in time. This one moves a little slow, but the premise is so funny. Rich Matthew Prince has been very spoiled all his life, but when he buys an ISLAND his parents cut him off and send him to live in the middle of nowhere with his grandparents. When he gets there he finds out he has to share bunk beds with the rugged and handsome boy they’ve taken in.
And sparks fly. After the angst does.
This story is witty, sweet, and has some steam. While it’s a holiday romcom, it’s also about mental health, growing up, being honest with yourself, and it’s about family.
Definitely add this one to your holiday TBR!
