You're a Mean One, Matthew Prince (Paperback)Timothy Janovsky (author)
In this deliciously festive queer romcom, a massive PR mishap sends famous and spoiled Matthew Prince into hiding in his grandparents' picture-perfect small town – with unexpected consequences.
Bring a little joy to the world? Not today, Santa.
Matthew Prince is young, rich, and thoroughly spoiled. So what if his parents barely remember he exists and the press is totally obsessed with him? He's on top of the world. But one major PR misstep later, and Matthew is cut off and shipped away to spend the holidays in his grandparents' charming small town hellscape. Population: who cares?
It's bad enough he's stuck in some festive winter wonderland-it's even worse that he has to share space with Hector Martinez, an obnoxiously attractive local who's unimpressed with anything and everything Matthew does.
Just when it looks like the holiday season is bringing nothing but heated squabbles, the charity gala loses its coordinator and Matthew steps in as a saintly act to get home early on good behavior... with Hector as his maddening plus-one.
But even a Grinch can't resist the unexpected joy of found family, and in the end, the forced proximity and infectious holiday cheer might be enough to make a lonely Prince's heart grow three sizes this year.

Okay, here's the thing, I didn't finish the book.
We get it, Matthew Prince is a mean, privileged person. I didn't need the constant reminders, packed as jokes. About thirty pages in, I got so tired of... More
“Heartfelt LGBTQ+ festive read”
The cover on this book is absolutely adorable and matches the story completely. The writing style is easy to follow and I adore that the main character Matthew isn't made to be "likeable" at first.... More
“Gossip Girl meets Hallmark Christmas film in a bad way”
DNF at 34%.
Not even all the gushing reviews could persuade me to finish this book. Matthew Prince is a spoilt rich brat, who went too far when he bought an actual island, and he has now been cut off from his trust... More
