I loved it, and I think teens will too.
For starters, I loved Holly. 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. By meeting up for more coffee with romance authors extraordinaire, Maisey Yates and Lisa Hendrix!
Nick was all but nice to her sometimes, but she would get all her claws out and act as though he had just told her that he wanted her dead. While Holly could have easily dexked a girl I didn’t care for she complains a lotMarni Bates wrote her to be more charming and funny than I expected. I had mixed feelings throughout.

Decked with Holly Audiobook | Marni Bates |
The Narration was hklly and I liked it very much. Smartly blending of-the-moment pop culture references and timeless themes, Bates follows her YA debut, “Awkward”, with a hilarious, over-the-top adventure about a teen girl who becomes the fake girlfriend of a cute rock star.
When I was in the middle of all of that awkward anxiety filled experience tha I am not ashamed to admit that this book is totally my junior high fantasy come to life in novel form. You are commenting using your Facebook account. Turns out, there is a whole lot I have yet to learn about adulthood.
Honestly, this has been the most amazing year for me.
The gifting, decorating, music some of it, anywaythe baking, the parties and the sparkles — I love all of it. I think it adds a personal touch.

I am not ashamed to admit that this book is totally my junior high fantasy come to life in novel form. Her female cousins and aunt don’t really get much character development other than to serve as the primary antagonists, what with their snide remarks and plain UGLY personalities.
Wihh to Read saving…. As for Jen, Holly’s vecked friend, she was the typical “more outgoing BFF of the quiet protagonist” character. And when in a moment of seasick-fueled desperation she lurches into an open suite–she’s greeted with an eyeful of pepper spray. It’s a book that you just need to read because sometimes, you need a good laugh!
How bad could it be to be fauxmantically involved with one of the cutest rock stars on the planet? Trust me, the last thing Brazilians want is for me to mangle their beautiful language. Both Holly and Dominic were fun to read about, and their meet cute was super funny and kind of gross at the same time. I absolutely loved Awkward — I was cracking up like crazy throughout the whole book, but I thought Decked with Holly surpassed it.
Give as a gift.
Decked with Holly
I can tell you that my heroine Emmy Danvers gets into a boatload of danger that involves contract killers, an elite prep school, and a boy with more than a few secrets of his own. Escapist, giggle-inducing, adorable dessert.
Dominic Wyatt, her supposed foil, is a rock star a la Justin Bieber or One Direction, and he just wants a break. Taking a Christmas cruise with her two cousins from hell isn’t Holly’s idea of a good time.
