Everyone knows those Christmas romances where they pretend to be a couple for the holidays and end up falling in love before Christmas Eve, right? Well, at least every hopeless romantic does.

Penelope knows these movies by heart, watching them every cold December night as she hopelessly waits for Aden, her irresistible colleague, to get the hint and see her as more than a friend.

But this year, she won’t wait for Santa to bring her the perfect romance. She is determined to take matters into her own hands and get the love story she’s been waiting for too long.

She has the perfect plan for it: she will ask Aden to be her fake boyfriend for the holidays. If it works in the movies, why wouldn’t it work in real life, especially when they have already some much in common?

She has everything planned to make him fall in love before Christmas day, well, everything except a little detail... A pair of green eyes and a devious smirk that have driven her up the wall her whole childhood: Theone, her brother’s best friend.

He’s back for the holidays, and she knows the moment he passes the door that it means nothing but trouble.

What she doesn’t suspect, though, is that he could mess her perfect Christmas romance the only way she would have never thought...

Join Penelope in her journey to find love, where there is gonna be all these classic Christmas romances must-haves: romantic ice-skating, cookies made with love, mistletoe kisses, adorable little kids, snow... yet maybe not as you imagine.
