The greatest gift might be what they already have.

After years away building his career, event planner Sebastian Chesnut returns to his small hometown of Fir Falls to reconnect with his mother, sister, and young nieces before his job takes him to London.

He doesn’t expect to find his high school boyfriend, Matty, has become a virtual member of Seb’s family. Back then, Matty only offered a casual relationship, but Seb fell hard, and history is soon repeating itself. Seb’s afraid to hope for a second chance, no matter how much they’ve grown and despite the family they share. Instead, he focuses on creating a last perfect holiday, which won’t be easy with his sister’s ex planning to take the girls over Christmas.

Seb and Matty might not know what to do about their feelings for each other, but one thing’s for sure—it won’t be Christmas without the kids. Can these star-crossed lovers pull off a holiday miracle?

A second-chance festive romance with a lot of warmth

Santa's Last GiftSanta’s Last Gift by Sandine Tomas

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

This is a sweet second chance festive romance with a lovely feeling of warmth to it.

It’s a Dreamspinner Press release so don’t expect too much steam.

Instead there’s a slow burn, family oriented relationship which picks up ten years after teenage fumblings were cut short.

I will just say though that having one of the character’s nicknames be Baz really set my teeth on edge as I dislike that name.

But I just called him Seb in my head and all was well 😂

There is the usual moment of drama around the 75/80% mark which felt somewhat constructed for the tension point.

However, in the overall scheme of things, it fit within the narrative so I just ran with it.

The kids in the book never overtook things, and I loved that there were great female characters across the board.

Add in a really visual setting for the small town where Matty and Seb’s journey back to each other begins, and I was overall pretty happy.

Romancing The…

Trust is the most precious jewel of all. 

When Mayfair jewelers Starsmith Stones wins the commission for a gay royal wedding, CEO Joel Sterling is recommended to the brilliant young designer Matt Barth—only to discover Matt’s the man with whom he shared an anonymous and passionate kiss on the celebration night.

Disenchanted with the commercial jewelry industry, Matt nowadays prefers muddy archaeological digs to designing. Openly resentful of Starsmith’s hostile takeover of his family’s firm, he is horrified at the realization he’ll be working with the man who engineered that deal—but the opportunity to create something fabulous and unique for the royal couple is too tempting to refuse.

Working as a team reignites the spark between Joel and Matt. But when betrayal from within Starsmith threatens both the project and Joel’s confidence, will they have built enough trust to keep their newfound love as precious as the royal jewels?
