To review

Awww, this one was sweet! And omg, they became friends and was friends for a long time before becoming more. They actually knew each other. Oh and this should so be a netflix movie! Perfect holiday movie wink wink.

Dani's husband left her (he sounds like a real ass), her job is fine, but she wants more!

Max is a Duke to be (from a strange European country where everyone speaks with a posh English accent, very Netflix :D He is a rake, and oh he sounded so lovely, especially when with her. That made me melt.

They met before, they meet again, become friends, become really good friends, become must text each other all the time. Oh you two, you love each other!

Drama on different fronts, becoming more and just being so freaking great for each other. Awww, the feels. A really fun and cute movie.

Great narration, her Max voices was perfect, as were her other voices too. Emotion and cuteness all the way through

Maximillian von Hansburg, baron of Laudon and heir to the duke of Aquilla, is not having a merry Christmas. He’s been dumped by a princess, he’s unemployed, and his domineering father has sent him to New York to meet a prospective bride he has no interest in. In the city, he meets Dani Martinez, a smart (and gorgeous) professor he’s determined to befriend before their best friends marry in the Eldovian wedding of the century.

Newly single, no-nonsense New Yorker Dani is done with love - she even has a list entitled “Things I Will Never Again Do for a Man” - which is why she hits it off with notorious rake Max. He’s the perfect partner for snow angels in Central Park and deep conversations about the futility of love.

It’s all fun and games until their friendship deepens into attraction and, oops....Falling in love was never part of the plan.
