Camp Christmas (Camp Boyfriend #1.5)
by JK Rock

Hannah never meant to be a mean girl – at Camp Juniper Point or at her high school. It just sort of happened during one painful year when her parents split and her life fell apart. Who knew being mad at the world would catapult her to popularity? But since changing the status quo would make her some serious enemies, she’s prepared to ride out her time until graduation. That is, until a camp friend calls her on the act during their school ski trip. Will Julian out her to her friends? Or will the guy she once accused of being King of the Nerds make her wish she was a whole lot more like him?

My Review:
The first novella in this series made me want to read the rest of the series, this is the second novella in the camp boyfriend series and it’s just as awesome as the first. Camp Christmas takes Hannah the mean girl from Camp and shows the readers a different side of her when she goes on a ski trip with her school the day before christmas.

I love JK Rock their writing style and how they combine popular and nerd aspects in their characters. This novella is really enjoyable and sweet. I really liked getting to know Hannah and how she struggles with everything going on and in the end even opened her eyes and pushed aside some of her fears to let Julian in. Julian is another great character, I don’t remember much about him from Camp Boyfriend, but I really enjoyed getting to know him in this novella. He is a nerd who doesn’t care about what other people think about him and I really admired him for the fact that he could walk around in a cape because he wanted to and didn’t let other people their opinions affect him.

Hannah and Julian might seem like a weird couple at first sight, a mean girl and a nerd, but they are really good for each other. I also liked the winter setting of this novella and it made me wish I could take a ski vacation too (I love skiing!). While many novellas feel a bit rushed, this novella didn’t have that problem at all. Sure it was short, that’s why it’s called a novella, but the pacing was good and I wished it was longer because I wanted to know more about these awesome characters and how their relationship will develop form here onwards.

To conclude: this is a great novella to curl up with this winter. Julian and Hannah are a great couple and I like dgetting to know them better. This novella is a great addition to the series and I can’t wait to read Camp Payback, the next book in this series!

  1. Grabbed a copy! I love geeked out heroes. They’re so much fun to read πŸ™‚ Glad this one lived up to expectations! I’m a big fan of the wintery settings too. Always makes me want to find a little mountain town and snuggle up for a weekend getaway.

    • I hope you enjoy it! I really love this series so far! And yes the winter setting also makes me wish I could pack my bags and stay in some winter town for a while.
