Synopsis:

A paperback original romance about a bookish Filipino-American girl who crosses paths with the innkeeper’s aggravating nephew–but when they accidentally switch phones, their newly discovered secrets draw them together.

Lila Castro is ready to take on her last winter break of high school. The snow is plentiful, the mood is full of holiday cheer, and she’s earning extra cash working at the cozy local inn. But her perfect holiday plans crash to a halt when her boss’s frustratingly cute nephew, Teddy Veracruz, becomes her coworker. When they accidentally switch phones one afternoon, they both realize they’ve been hiding things from each other. Will their secrets–and a dash of holiday spirit–bring them closer to love?

Underlined is a line of totally addictive romance, thriller, and horror paperback original titles coming to you fast and furious each month. Enjoy everything you want to read the way you want to read it.


I’m obsessed with Lila as a character. A secret book blogger for her Tinsel & Tropes website, I adored the idea of her focusing on holiday reads, and really enjoyed seeing pieces of her writing incorporated into the book as well. The writing style of Marcelo shines in this book, especially in the voice of those blog posts, they were one of my favorite parts!

There were plenty of great things about this title that made it a 5 star for me —

I found this young adult title so well written, while still being light hearted and fun. Lila’s focus on earning enough money to go to her dream school has her working even harder in hopes of more hours, until those hopes are ruined with the arrival of Teddy, the owner’s nephew. Their enemies to lovers romance was age appropriate and adorable, and I loved how al the details came together with the best friend’s Top Ten Things to Do in Holly, and the added fun of the Holiday by the Lake movie. All of it created a unique and charming setting that made for a book I didn’t want to end!
