A waste of time and 99 cents. This very short story (NOOK has it at 19 pages) does nothing in developing Maddie and Ramirez's relationship. It is just a series of recurring characters showing up to invite Maddie and Ramirez out for holiday partying and Maddie turning them down so she could spend their first real Christmas together. It was just annoying. Save the pennies and time and just skip to the next full length book.
