Title: Rule #4: You Can’t Misinterpret a Mistletoe Kiss
Author: Anne-Marie Meyer
Series: The Rules of Love #4
A mistletoe kiss is just a simple kiss, right? Wrong.
All I want to do during this Christmas break is survive. A week at the cabin with our family’s friends/rivals, the Stephensons, every yuletide activity is turned into a competition where my family must win. Every. One.
Yep. Lots of Christmas spirit around here.
But, I’ve survived past holidays, there’s no reason why I can’t survive this one.
Until Mom informs me that Jacob Stephenson, my brother’s ex-best friend and resident bad boy, is back from his grandmothers after having been gone for the semester. I guess, after you find out your son robbed a gas station, you banish him to the most southern state.
Now my ridiculous crush is back in full force and I’m trying really hard to stay away from him. My brother is frustrated that Jacob is home and I’m supposed to put my family above boys. Right?
I was attempting to be loyal until Jacob and I kiss. Sure, it was a forced one brought on by mistletoe tradition, but there was something in the way he held me and pressed his lips to mine that told me, he just might be feeling something more.
But when he keeps pulling away and acting like the bad boy I’m pretty sure is fake, I begin to realize that there’s more at stake here then just my heart. A truth that is eating away at him. I just hope I can unearth it before Christmas is over and any chance that I have at discovering the real Jacob disappears.
Another cute and quick story!
This book was the last book in the series The Rules of Love.
I really enjoyed all of these books in here along with their book boyfriends! I think it was so clever of putting all the typical “rules” and then turning them into a love story.
Although this book was good, it wasn’t my favorite out of this series. For some reason, I didn’t feel as compelled to read this as I did with the other books. My guess might be because it takes place during the holidays and I didn’t read during Christmas time.
But, that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy reading it.
I think these books are perfect for when you want just something cute and quick to read. One thing I like about this series is that they can be treated as stand alone books because they don’t have any relationship to the other books besides the “Rules”.

I think Jacob was sweet and you wanted to get to know him more and more, The only thing I didn’t like about him was how he wouldn’t tell the truth but I understand why he did it, he had a reason. Jacob also seems like the person to put other people before himself which I think is a really great quality.
