Secrets add a bit of spice to this Christmas romance

Secret SantaSecret Santa by Jay Northcote

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There are some authors who you can rely on for a good festive story no matter what and Jay is one of those.

His latest offering has a bit more of a twist to it than the usual with each of the protagonists hiding something from the other. It’s not unnecessary angst for the sake of drama though.

It felt totally believable that Theo wouldn’t want to mention his son Archie on a first date and that Luke would be embarrassed to admit he’d seen them while playing Santa.

And, speaking off children, Archie was a ‘real’ character too. By that I mean he wasn’t written as some “uber genius overly advanced for his age” child. He developed a great relationship with Luke and I loved his enthusiasm about his Santa pressies.

This is a moderately steamy book but the big scene which occurs on Christmas Day is truly delicious, involving as it does a candy cane coloured glass dildo!
