Decked with Holly | [Marni Bates]

Decked with Holly

Spending Christmas vacation on a cruise with her two cousins from hell isn't Holly's idea of a good time. And when, in a moment of seasick-fueled desperation, she lurches into an open suite - she's greeted with an eyeful of pepper spray. The culprit? A gorgeous guy calling himself Nick. But when Holly goes to make her exit, she gets the shock of her life: a corridor crammed with screaming teenage fans. Because Nick just happens to be Dominic Wyatt, drummer for ReadySet - one of the hottest bands in America.

Audible Editor Reviews

In Decked with Holly, narrated earnestly by a very young-sounding Cassandra Morris, our early teenage heroine, Holly, is doing her best to endure the unendurable - spending Christmas vacation adrift at sea on a cruise with her two obnoxious cousins.

Holly’s life on the dull sea liner is forever changed when she has an unintentional encounter with a beautiful guy, Nick, who also happens to be the drummer for the one of most popular boy bands on the planet.

Young Holly proceeds to brush up against celebrity and the lifestyles of the rich, famous, and gorgeous. Will she survive its crush?

Publisher's Summary

Holly Dayton is about to go way out of her comfort zone. . .Spending Christmas vacation on a cruise with her two cousins from hell isn't Holly's idea of a good time. And when, in a moment of seasick-fueled desperation, she lurches into an open suite - she's greeted with an eyeful of pepper spray. The culprit? A gorgeous guy calling himself Nick. But when Holly goes to make her exit, she gets the shock of her life: a corridor crammed with screaming teenage fans. Because Nick just happens to be Dominic Wyatt, drummer for ReadySet - one of the hottest bands in America.

Suddenly, rumors are swirling and Holly's face is captured on countless phones and plastered all over the Internet. But the band can't risk a scandal destroying their family-friendly image, so Dominic convinces Holly to be his fake girlfriend - just for two weeks. How bad could it be to be fauxmantically involved with one of the cutest rock stars on the planet? Holly's about to find out. . .

"Fans of Meg Cabot will find Marni's voice equally charming and endearing." (Julie Kagawa, New York Times best-selling author)

    Story
    "Christmas, Christmas Time is Here...."

    First off, the female narrator sounds like a chipmunk. It quickly becomes VERY grating and distracting after being initially laughable. I have teenaged daughters, and if they or their friends sounded like this, I would sit them down and explain to them how having a ridiculous voice will do them no favors in life. The male narrator is OK, definitely nice to get a break from Miss Squeak since she only needs to be endured every other chapter,

    The story itself was lighthearted and cute, but it would have been better if the female lead had been 20ish instead of 17. It is pretty unrealistic that a 17-yo high school student on a family cruise for her grandfather's birthday would be shacking up with a rock star on board the ship without grandpa knowing about it, even if she does have evil-stepsister-like cousins running interference. Plus, WHY would they do that when they hate her? I don't think having the room to themselves is a strong enough motivator. In any case, it is a very unrealistic, "No way that would ever happen" story that had a few cute moments. It's a "throw away" story. I cannot imagine ever wanting to hear it again, so I'm glad I paid almost nothing for it with Kindle Unlimited. Had I paid even $1.99, I'm sorry, but I'd have returned it for a refund.

    I would be totally willing to give the author another chance, but unfortunately, I noticed that Cassandra Morris is the narrator for several of her other books, so again, sorry. I just can't put my ears through it again. It took all my will power to get through the CM chapters.
