Review: If Only In My Dreams by Keira Andrews

To be home for Christmas, they must bridge the distance between them.

Charlie Yates is desperate. It’s almost Christmas and his flight home from college has been delayed. For days. Charlie promised his little sister Ava he’d be home for her first holiday season since going into remission from leukemia. Now he’s stuck on the opposite coast and someone else grabbed the last rental car. Someone he hasn’t even spoken to in four years. Someone who broke his heart.

Gavin Bloomberg’s childhood friendship with Charlie ended overnight after a day of stolen kisses. With years of resentment between them, they don’t want to be in the same room together, let alone a car. But for Ava’s sake, Gavin agrees to share the rental and drive across the country together.

As they face unexpected bumps along the road, can Charlie and Gavin pave the way to a future together?

If you are a Keira Andrews fans, a road-trip story fan, a frenemy to lover fan, a Christmas story fan - then this story is for you. It is the perfect Christmas story combination in my mind. The kind that leaves you with a warm glow. And it has snow. Lots and lots of snow. I don't know what it is about snow that warms the cockles of my heart in stories, but it really, really does. It just adds even more goo for me. Dammit. Snow is romantic in stories/films. Bridget Jones anyone?

The road certainly starts out bumpy for Charlie and Gavin. How do you react when the person you feel so much for ignores you for four years? I'd know how I would feel, no matter how good the reasons are. Charlie is dealing with so much that rejection from Gavin is about the last thing he can handle, yet somehow he does and moves on, until the fateful day when they are stuck together at the airport with only one option of getting home; a shared car. Pride takes a backseat when there is a sister and a special promise involved.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - friends to lovers is my favourite storyline. This has the added 'bonus' of being friends turned enemies... it all makes for a great feel good story. The kind you want to read with a hot chocolate and mince pie in front of a roaring fire. If you're looking to add to your Christmas reading, please don'#t miss this gem.
