Publisher's Summary

This sweet, funny holiday romance from the author of Romeo and What's Her Name features cute boys, plenty of rom-com mishaps, and a determined heroine listeners are certain to fall for.

Charlotte "Charlie" Donovan knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He's a star athlete, a National Honor Society member, and the most popular guy in school. Plus he contributes to the school paper, where Charlie is a co-editor. Basically, he's exactly the type of guy Charlie's looking for. The only problem is - he barely knows she exists.

But Charlie has a plan: rig the paper's Secret Santa and win his heart with the perfect gift. The catch? She has no idea what to get him. Enter J.D. Ortiz - Teo's cousin, and possibly the most annoying person on the planet. He's easy going, laid back, disorganized, and spontaneous - the exact opposite of Charlie (and Teo). But he knows what Teo wants, so she's stuck with him.

Yet, the more time Charlie spends with J.D., the more she starts to wonder: Does she really know what, or, rather, who, she wants for Christmas?

Shani Petroff's newest young adult comedy of errors, My New Crush Gave to Me, is the perfect listen for those searching for some love and laughter along with their holiday spirit.

I loved it! It put me in the holiday spirit!

I adored this book and recommend it to anyone who loves the holidays!

I want to listen to this audiobook again before the holidays are over, maybe even read the physical copy that one of my best bookstagram friends sent me. I found excuses to be in the car, since that’s my prime audiobook time, just to listen to the rest of the story. If you’re looking of the perfect holiday recommendation, look no further. Christmas/Holiday books aren’t done enough in the young adult genre, so I praise Petroff for creating a story I want to read at any time of the year and enjoy as much as rewatching my favorite Christmas movies.

High school romance

This was a fun look at a high school crush and how the secret Santa gifts lets the very up tight girl find the right guy for her even if she doesn’t know it at first

Shani Petroff! This was a great holiday story about what it means to be a true friend. JD and Charlie were a work in progress! However, Charlie was truly clueless and a bit selfish! Shani did a wonderful job as narrator too!
