New Review! Frozen by L.A. Casey, 5 Cranky Stars

Title: Frozen
Author: L.A. Casey
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, New Adult, Romantic Comedy
Publisher: Montlake Romance

There’s one must-have toy this Christmas, and Neala Clarke has told her niece Charli she’ll get it for her. Never mind that she’s got less than a week and it looks like everywhere is sold out. She’s promised Charli a Fire Princess doll—and Neala is a woman of her word.
Darcy Hart is a people-pleaser. So when his adorable six-year-old nephew, Dustin, asks for a particular doll at the last minute, he says yes. Luckily for Darcy, there’s one left in stock at the local toy store. Unluckily for Darcy, he’s not the only person who wants it—and his rival is the one woman who’s immune to his charms.
Neala and Darcy have loved to hate each other since they were kids, and they’re both willing to do whatever it takes to get that doll. This can’t possibly end well for both of them…can it?

Neala Clarke and Darcy Hart have known each other since birth, as there ma’s are best friends. Neala and Darcy were the best of friends until Darcy choose another girl over Neala when they were in school. Now they hate each other and whenever they are together they are always playing pranks on each other. Since the two families are so close and they are together often, everyone in both families has reached their limit of this fifteen year battle. That doesn't stop Neala and Darcy especially when they are now fighting over the last must-have toy to give as a Christmas gift. Neala promised her niece she would get it for her and Darcy promised his nephew he would get it for him. Both Neala and Darcy are willing to do whatever it takes to get this doll, and boy do they pull some crazy stunts in the process.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author. I love how the setting for the story is in Ireland and the dialect from the area. It felt like I was there, which was cool because someday I’d love to visit. There was a lot of predictability with this story, yet that made it fun seeing what Neala or Darcy was going to do for that to happen. Plus, the interactions of their families added to more of the laughter and craziness of this story. Usually when a book is predictable I don’t enjoy it but the way the author went about it, the crazy road to get to that predictable part is what kept me going. When I was forced to put this book down, I kept thinking what crazy thing they are going to do next.

If you want a light read with lots of shenanigans, then this is the book for you. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author and I really hope she writes more with Neala and Darcy or the other Clarke and Hart members.

Justin laughed, and it annoyed me.
This wasn’t funny.
“Care to explain why you’re being a dick and laughing at me?” I quizzed.
Justin chuckled. “Why does everyone make Neala out to be something she isn’t? She’s probably the sweetest girl I know, and just happens to have an attitude every now and then. Sounds like every woman I’ve ever met, if I’m honest.”
I gawked at my brother.
“Neala Clarke is the Devil in disguise, brother. You had better realise that. Sweet is the last word I would use to describe her . . . She is evil incarnate.”
