Ex-mas by Kate Brian

Two Exes. One holiday adventure.
Merry Ex-Mas?
Seventeen-year-old Lila Beckwith's parents just left for vacation, and Lila's all set to throw the holiday party of the season. But when her Christmas-obsessed little brother, Cooper, discovers that global warming is melting the North Pole, he and his best friend, Tyler, take off on a runaway mission to save Santa.
Lila has to get Cooper safely home before her parents get back on Christmas Eve. But the only person who can help her is Tyler's older brother, Beau -- a.k.a. Lila's musician, anti-everything ex-boyfriend.
It'll take more than a Christmas miracle for Lila and Beau to overcome their differences and find their fugitive brothers. But could a journey destined for disaster help these polar opposites fall in love...all over again?

I absolutely loved this book! It was cute. Even though it was very pretictable, and a quick reading, the whole story was well executed. All I want to do is read it over and over again. I thought it was hilarious though, how the two boys wanted to save Santa, so they tried to get up to the North Pole. Crazy. When Lila's boyfriend Eric comes back into the picture near the end, it was obvious everything that happened, was going to happen, and I wanted to shoot him in the head, and then her, because it seemed like all she cared about was getting a car. But the ending made it all better for me. This is a story about love, loss, expecting the unexpected, and learning to trust your heart, not someone else's. x.
