Merry Inkmas is a short, feel good holiday romance story following Bailey and Cash. Bailey is a strong willed, adorably nerdy and plus sized goddess working in a coffee shop whilst studying psychology. Determined to learn from her mother’s mistakes, Bailey insists she won’t sacrifice self-respect for any relationship. When Cash enters her life, a bad boy with a heart of gold, she finds herself wondering if this beast might be her prince Charming.

Cash Evans is tattoo artist with a troubled childhood, and a very flirty customer of Bailey’s. He’s come a long way and amassed wealth from his skills as an artist, but this can’t fix the hole in his heart. Cash knows that the sweet barista who haunts his dreams is off-limits… But life doesn’t always go to plan.

I concede. I read this solely because I was hugely obsessed with the early seasons of the CW adaptation of Gossip Girl. When I came across the audiobooks via my library, I thought why not? I have always wanted to try the books. However I can’t say I’m eager to jump back into this Cecily von Zeiger’s mind after what was a pretty unenjoyable, and at times, aggravating read.
