Merry Measure Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Arlo Wright’s introduction to his sexuality came when he saw his older brother’s best friend, Jack Cooper, in his sweaty football kit. Unfortunately, he didn’t have long to enjoy the revelation because he promptly knocked himself out on a table.
Relations between them have never really moved on from that auspicious beginning. Arlo is still clumsy, and Jack is still as handsome and unobtainable as ever. However, things look like they’re starting to change when Arlo finds himself sharing a room with Jack while on holiday in Amsterdam at Christmas.
Will the festive spirit finally move them towards each other, or is Arlo just banging his head against a wall this time?
From best-selling author Lily Morton comes a warm romantic comedy set in chilly Amsterdam.

constantly while reading this.
Jack Cooper is the more serious of the pairing in this instance ( I’ve read 5 books from this author over the last 5 days, and there’s always one funny & one more serious in the couple pairings ), & he needs more of Arlo’s humour & clumsiness in his life. The extra scene of these 2 together provided in the authors newsletter is worth the read for anyone who enjoyed Merry Measure.
This was one of those books that I knew I was going to enjoy from the very beginning, and I’m so happy that I decided to pick it up! Some characters and stories take a minute to adjust to, but I felt like I was swept up in both from the start. Arlo and Jack are beautiful main characters, and honestly, I want to be friends with these guys.
Everything flowed so smoothly, and it’s one of those books where I just didn’t want to put it down! (Case on point: it’s currently 10:47am and I have yet to get out of bed because I was not moving until I finished reading this masterpiece).
Get on it, folks!
Arlo is sweet, witty, snarky, completely disorganised and hilariously clumsy. Jack is his brothers best friend, very precise, obsessed with details, always wound too tight and Arlo is just the person he needs in his life.
They also happen to have secret crushes on each other, buckets of chemistry and end up having to share a room together on holiday in Amsterdam.
I can’t tell you how often I laughed, and snorted, at the banter and clumsiness of Arlo whilst reading this hilarious rom com. It started on the very first page, had me hooked from there and turned into a one sitting read.
This is such a fun, enjoyable, low angst Christmas rom com that I cannot recommend highly enough
This is a lovely story and I enjoyed it so much😍😍
So Jack and Arlo will make you laugh and see love anew. This story has laughs and great views of Amsterdam. One of the most beautiful happy places to visit, and the author has conveyed that.
So enjoy a fun, delightful read of how a group of friends enjoy their visit in Amsterdam and how two of them fall in love.
Couldn’t ask for a better read.

It’s like all the best snarking characters in Lily’s world got together and donated parts of their DNA to add into an egg which had been created from all the most loving and caring protective cinnamon buns found in her books, and then Arlo was born.
He’s an absolute joy, a snarker of the highest calibre and as clumsy as a baby. Fortunately, he’s had Jack, his older brother Tom’s best friend, on hand throughout most of his life to rescue him from all these mishaps he keeps landing in.
The crush level has been intense, but when the two end up sharing a room on a long weekend trip to Amsterdam, not long after Jack’s broken up with the latest version of his hideously perfect and tedious boyfriends that the sparks really fly.
Because Jack’s got a crush too…
I’m not going to go into more detail for this one. Except to say that Lily might have broken her record for how quickly I almost choked to death while drinking a cup of tea (within the first couple of paragraphs) and also how big the smile was on my face while reading.
This book is a guaranteed pick-me-up if you feel down, it’s a mini travel guide to the delights of Amsterdam and it’s about as festive romance as they can get.
It has enough UST to fuel a rocket; it has soulful stares and lusty looks; it’s got a brilliant cast of secondary characters; and the meet/cute for Arlo’s parents might just be the best I’ve ever read in any book – #justsaying #HotGossipWereHot – along with an Epilogue that will have you doing one of those heartfelt sighs that something could be so perfect.
Get it, read it, and give yourselves a Merry Little Christmas. And that cover?! Natasha Snow outdoing herself yet again.
Lily should receive a massive thank you from Amsterdam tourist board, I imagine everyone who reads this book will be planning a trip to Amsterdam as soon as Covid-19 permits.
This book has all the snark and humour I’d expect from a lily Morton novel, as well as plenty of heat and adorable moments, with the added bonus of being set in Amsterdam. The descriptions are vivid enough that I can imagine being there and honestly I now need to make it a winter holiday destination.
Beautiful as ever, perfect for anyone who just likes good romance and good writing.
I don’t think my husband will forgive me for reading this book during the night. I woke him up at 3 o’clock with laughing so much. It’s a truly feel good read.
