This is the second Liwen Ho book I've read and I've enjoyed both. It is well written, flows nicely and is just the right amount of sweet.
The story revolves around organized and precise health blogger Alyssa, who takes to burrowing in chocolate, sick of blind dates gone wrong. Too bad she doesn't realize what's she looking for has been under her nose, offering spoonfuls of consolation ice cream all along. She and scruffy, laidback Barry have a very special mint chocolate friendship, even though she prefers plain ole predictable vanilla. After a weekend of favors posing as fake dates leads to a merry mix up, they must face the facts. But are the comfortable pals willing to risk freezer burn if they splurge on the sundae of true love with all the toppings?
If you enjoy sweet romance and quick reads, I recommend this cute story. And now I'm off to rummage for a scoop of frozen perfection, myself.
In it, we find Alyssa, a blogger, trying desperately to find a date for her father's upcoming birthday. After yet another failed attempt, she finally ends up asking her best friend and neighbor Barry to help her out, to which he accepts after asking for a favor in return. Will the mint chocolate chip kind of guy and the vanilla kind of girl realize they have more in common than their shared love for ice cream?
I certainly loved getting to know "Ace" and "Bare" (the nickname's they gave each other), as well as all the ice cream references. It was a really cute short story (the length being my one and only complaint) of best friends to more ;) ~ Completely recommended.
Having enjoyed other romances by author Liwen Y. Ho, I was rather certain I'd like The More the Merrier, even though I didn't know what it was about ahead of time. I just dove right on into Alyssa Wu's dilemma concerning a string of unfortunate blind dates and a "fake date" with her guy-friend-neighbor, Barry Chang--a date that may or may not get Alyssa's parents off her back about finding herself a husband already.
Yes, the read is short, sweet, romantic (even a little hot), Christmassy, and not just a straight shot to Happily Ever After without believable conflict. Sure, there are a couple of emotional swings that happen a tad fast to keep the story going, but not so fast as to give the reader whiplash or anything. I even had some real giggles and a moment or two of eyebrow raising--in a very good way.
I'd recommend this fun splash of Merry to any fans of sweet romance at springtime, summertime, Christmastime--whatever time a splash of Merry is wanted or needed.
I really loved this shortie, definitely a 41/2 just shy of a 5.
Don’t skip this one
I received this free not sure now if directly from the author or on a promotional site, but through Amazon at the end link. But the view is mine and was not required
After one hospital event in an elf costume, Alyssa has decided that she’s in love with Barry. Wow, that fast, huh? And how convenient that Barry has always liked her.
The two play a good role for each other. Writing was pretty good, too.
An okay Xmas love story.

Overall, a nice short story!
Interesting, quirky characters and situations. A feel-good, short story that's smooth and tasty, like a little bowl of one's preferred ice cream.
