Graham Wallace has been in love with the girl next door for a decade. Unfortunately, she’s been dating his best friend for the past two years. Out of sheer desperation, Graham makes a wish on a shooting star—all he wants for Christmas is Sarah Clarke.

When Graham wakes up the next morning, everything has changed, and he’s the one who’s been dating Sarah for the past two years, not his best friend. Graham assumes the wish would have only come true if he and Sarah were meant to be together, but as it becomes clear that he and Sarah bring out the worst in each other, not the best, and as he starts to fall for the new girl in town, Graham wonders if some wishes come true in order to show us what’s not meant to be.

My review:

I thought All I want for Christmas is the girl next door was cute and short. I liked the main character though I wasn’t a huge fan of the love rectangle that was taking place. The writing flow was easy to get into otherwise.

I am glad the main character came to his senses in the end because his “dream girl” romance didn’t seem to fit well through the whole book. I liked the scenes with him and Piper more. I didn’t like Sarah as a character much.

This book was a three star rating mostly because I am not into the love triangle or more messes. This is a good book to read still if you are wanting something that is cute and about Christmas. It also had a Hallmark Christmas movie vibe. I know I have seen some of these plots take place in them, but I did like that this one took place from a male’s version instead of a female lead.

Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing me the chance to read and review this book. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
