The Five Days of Christmas: A New-Adult Holiday Novelette by Maria Cassano is the story of Allison as she reluctantly flies home for Christmas, only to find a person from her past right there to make her second guess everything. It has been five years since Allison went home for Christmas and their annual Chapman-Beaumont Christmas tradition and festivities. So this year, she is going home and she is bringing her boyfriend along. However, she was not expecting to come face to face with Jake Chapman who used to be her closest friend and then her enemy. He is not the same old Jake anymore; he is not the lanky guy who used to be her friend. He evokes feelings in her that she never anticipated, but she has to deal with them along with dealing with her family. What is it about Jake that calls to her? Can she let it go for the sake of her relationship with her boyfriend?

This story was so adorable. Jake is so sassy, whip-smart and intelligent. The witty dialogues between Allison and Jake were too fun to ignore. They added so much character to this story and made it even more entertaining. The Chapman-Beaumont families were hilarious, they were like your usual families trying to have fun and enjoy the time with each other. The tussles and hilarious interactions between these families were incredibly enjoyable. The chemistry between Jake and Allison was phenomenal; they both gave just as good as they got from each other. This is a fun, fast-paced and incredible entertaining short story.
