Lexi and Cameron have been together for so long that she feels they've lost their spark. She has no idea how to regain it back, but she does know that come next year things with be very different as they head to college and move on with their lives. Lexi has planned the next few stages of her life and they do no coincide with Cams. She figures "Why wait for the inevitable?" Lexi can't break Cameron's heart, but she comes up with a plan to make him break up with her. She sets him up with a girl completely opposite of her and watches her boyfriend's politeness morph into something more. When they do break up, Lexi tries date other boys, but her heart isn't in it. When she's out on a date, she spies Cameron out with his new girlfriend and it pangs her heart. Did Lexi make a mistake letting Cameron go? And if so, will it be too late to get him back? This Simon Pulse Romantic Comedy was different than the others in the same line. Mostly because the book dealt with getting rid of a boyfriend and then unhappy with the outcome. It took me a little while to wrap my head around the new scenario, but in the end, I really liked the idea. It became about flaws and second chances and mistakes made in relationships.

For those in the mood for a holiday romance, then curl up with THE TWELVE DATES OF CHRISTMAS. As with all the Simon Romantic Comedies, this one won't disappoint. The ending can be deduced from it being part of the Romantic Comedies collection, but how Lexi gets to her "happily ever after" is what makes this story so much fun!

Lexi has been dating Cameron Kehoe for the last three years. It's her senior year, and she's not sure that Cameron is going to fit into her "long-term" plans. She's determined to land the Simpson Scholarship to help her get into a good East Coast college and eventually work her way through medical school. Cameron is content to stay in the quaint town they live in, Claus Lake.

Claus Lake is everything Christmas. From the first hint of fall weather, the town gears up for the Christmas season, ending the celebrations with the traditional Christmas Eve Costume Ball.

Lexi is far too nice a girl to dump Cameron, though. She is torn with thinking she'd be responsible for giving him a broken heart. He's truly a decent guy but Lexi is afraid he's not "The One" for her. So her plan, with the assistance of her best friend, Allie, is to find another girl for Cameron. That way, he will have someone else.

The two decide to use the new girl in town, Jaylene, as Cameron's next girlfriend. However, once the plan starts to work (clearly Jaylene is interested in Cameron!), Lexi starts to have doubts. Allie is always coming up with new psychological theories, and her current one involves the "twelve date" theory. She proposes that by the time two people have gone on twelve dates, they've established a relationship and have become a couple.

Lexi realizes she's made a huge mistake and that Cameron was perfect for her after all. But as Cameron and Jaylene inch closer to the twelfth date, Lexi and Allie go into full reversal to win Cameron back.

Of course, the reader can imagine all the crazy schemes that the two hatch, and the aftermath of each failed plot. Read THE TWELVE DATES OF CHRISTMAS and curl up with a cup of hot chocolate. You'll feel all warm inside by the last page.
