The Plot (from Goodreads):

Bee Hobbes (aka Bianca Von Honey) has a successful career as a plus-size adult film star. With a huge following and two supportive moms, Bee couldn’t ask for more. But when Bee’s favorite producer casts her to star in a Christmas movie he’s making for the squeaky-clean Hope Channel, Bee’s career is about to take a more family-friendly direction.

Forced to keep her work as Bianca under wraps, Bee quickly learns this is a task a lot easier said than done. Though it all becomes worthwhile when she discovers her co-star is none other than childhood crush Nolan Shaw, an ex-boy band member in desperate need of career rehab. Nolan’s promised his bulldog manager to keep it zipped up on set, and he will if it means he’ll be able to provide a more stable living situation for his sister and mom.

But things heat up quickly in Christmas Notch, Vermont, when Nolan recognizes his new co-star from her ClosedDoors account (oh yeah, he’s a member). Now Bee and Nolan are sneaking off for quickies on set, keeping their new relationship a secret from the Hope Channel’s execs. Things only get trickier when the reporter who torpedoed Nolan’s singing career comes snooping around—and takes an instant interest in mysterious newcomer Bee.

And if Bee and Nolan can’t keep their off-camera romance behind the scenes, then this merry little meet cute might end up on the cutting room floor.

The Review: 

This book was nothing like what I expected and exactly what I needed! As you may know, I rarely read synopses before starting a book. For A Merry Little Meet Cute, I heard from friends that it was amazing, saw that it was by Julie Murphy, and absolutely judged the book by its cover. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was about a porn star, and obviously just as steamy as that would lead you to believe!

If you haven’t read the summary, it’s OnlyFans meets the Hallmark channel. Hooked yet? If not, her co-star is her childhood crush, and he’s subscribed to her channel.

I put the audiobook on to listen while driving home from family vacation, luckily alone. In minutes, I was absolutely cracking up at the premise and the shenanigans these characters got themselves into.

This book was so unique, fresh, and well-done. It took a handful of favorite cheesy tropes and turned them into something so unlike anything I’ve read before! I adored every minute of it, every character, and would absolutely love to visit Christmas Notch!

This book absolutely needs to be added to your holiday TBR, no questions asked! I hope this duo keeps writing together, because they absolutely knocked this one out of the park.
