Get in the holiday spirit with this sexy rom-com from the author of Nick and Noel's Christmas Playlist.
Merry Winters has the holiday blues. She's spent the last year learning to love herself, and now she's ready to find the right guy. But the pickings are slim in Mistletoe, Idaho, and it’s just her luck that the man who catches her eye is the stoic new foreman at her family’s Christmas tree farm. Too bad he wants to keep a 39-and-a-half-foot pole between them.
Single dad Clark Griffin isn't looking for romance, but he wouldn't mind a friend to snuggle with on a cold winter's night. When he signs up for online dating, he doesn't expect to connect with the sassy, crafty Knottygirl25 and get wrapped up in every message she writes.
But when Merry turns out to be his blind internet date, his surprise causes him to miss his chance under the mistletoe. Can a little Christmas magic give these two a second chance at a first impression?

I was looking for holiday themed audiobooks when I bumped onto There's Something About Merry. A couple of reviews said it was pornographic and downright filthy, which was all the convincing I needed. I have to disagree with these reviews, I would rate it 🌶🌶🌶🌶 (= 1-5 sex scenes. May include harsh language). The steamy scenes appear very late in the story and are very carefully described, not filthy at all, but that's my opinion. I enjoyed them!
The story was 10 hours, 43 minutes, but it didn't feel that long because it is entertaining and keeps progressing.
I love it when a story has a message, this one has several. One of them is that it doesn't mean because someone acts a certain way, they are really that way. (for example: If someone is shy in a specific situation, it doesn't mean they are shy in general)
Clarke and Merry are both lovable characters that come across very realistically. I loved seeing them get to know each other better and grow in the couple they were at the end. They were so sweet together. At the beginning of the story, I would never have guessed that Clarke would grow into the caring, attentive boyfriend he was at the end.
There are many family moments, I enjoyed this aspect of the story. I liked how it shone a light on that every family is different and has a different dynamic. I loved how it gave the message that people don't have to be blood-related to be family.
There were several side characters, and I loved them all. Especially Jace and Sam. I hope Sam will get his own story with Holly.
CJ Bloom and Lee Samuels narrated the audiobook, and it was fantastic. I have listened to CJ Bloom before and love his voice. It was my first time listening to Lee Samuels, but I will definitely listen again. She has a pleasant, soft voice.
Both narrators were completely into the story and very consistent with their voices for the several characters.
The narration added to the story and brought the story and its characters to life.
If you love a feel-good holiday romance with lots of laughs, a little drama, emotions, and steam but lots of family moments and love, then this is a must-listen!
Anyway, I absolutely enjoyed this book, and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a solid Christmas romance to fall into. Looking forward to the next one (crossing my fingers)!
This book qualifies as "slow burn" because the sex scenes don't begin until 60%.
There is lots of heavy drinking in this book, lots of foul language, and highly descriptive sex.
A bit of soapy melodrama is thrown into the mix at the very end of the book, which is jarringly in contradiction to the tone of the rest of the story.
I skipped over a lot of this book after about halfway through, because it was mostly padded out with redundant scenes that all started to blend together in a boring, amorphous mass in my mind.
The audiobook narration is moderately good. However I don't recommend experiencing this story in audiobook format, because it drags out the experience of a book that is best read by skimming.
Oh one really annoying thing…her name is Merry not Mary. It really ticked me off that her name was pronounced as Mary. It’s Merry. Merry. Merry. Lol
• really enjoyed the narrators
• light holiday rom com
• a good amount of cheese and spice 😂
Again I say, not my usual genre but with Christmas, a cute puppy, and romance... what more could you want! The son was annoying to me but all of the other characters were likable. If you liked Nick and Noel's Christmas Playlist, definitely check this one out!
