What happens after the holiday fling is over?
A No-Strings Noel by Annabelle Jacobs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh I loved that. Most romances start with two people meeting, getting to know each other and build up to the hot sex.
Here instead we have a holiday encounter which is jam packed with delicious sparking steamy chemistry-filled sexy times between two men who start off thinking it’s going to be a no strings fling.
Of course, it quickly becomes clear there’s loads more feelings involved than either expected but both Henry and Dom are still dealing with breakups that left each of them bruised.
What I liked the best about this was the lack of over the top drama or angsting. Both men go home knowing they want more but being afraid to ask for it.
Instead, there then starts a sweet section where they get to know each other over text messages, talking to family and friends about the situation and mostly acting like grown ups.
The tension point arises in a believable way and the solution, while perhaps a little convenient still completely works within the narrative.
For most of this book we are only with Henry and Dom but it never felt restricted, I loved reading about their activities outside the bedroom as much as those with no clothes on 😁
It’s also subtly funny too, never taking itself too seriously, and I loved the build up to their reunion and the Epilogue is fab.
It’d make a great Hallmark Christmas film #JustSaying
