Length: 50,000 words approx.


Fresh off a break-up, Remy is in no mood to share a room with his brother’s best friend during a holiday stay at home. Jason Hendricks has always treated him like a little brother to tease and taunt, all the more embarrassing because Remy has secretly crushed on the jerk since puberty. But when Jason confides he’s bisexual, Remy realizes the crush he loves to hate could be the perfect rebound.

Jason has always found Remy appealing. He didn’t handle his attraction well when he was younger, but now Remy’s a grown man and Jason’s no longer afraid of his feelings. Some playful flirtation sounds like a great way to spend Thanksgiving break, but he’s not prepared for Remy’s newfound sex appeal or his decision to make Jason his rebound fling. Jason doesn’t want to risk fallout with a family that’s always been there for him, but he’s not sure he can resist.

When the two part ways, they don’t plan to stay in touch, but soon they’re texting, trading sexy pictures and helping each other cope with family drama. Remy agrees to be his for the holiday, continuing their secret fling over Christmas, but Jason knows that won’t be enough. He’ll have to find the courage to be open and honest with his best friend — and the whole Wells family — if he wants a chance at love in the new year.

This approximately 50,000 word novel is a brother’s best friend, enemies to lovers romance that comes with a satisfying HEA!


“Hey,” Jason said quietly. The bed dipped as he sat down on the edge of the mattress. “You okay?”

“Oh, so you’re done avoiding me?” Remy said, hating the bitter edge to his words. He swallowed hard, trying to gain control over his emotions, so he didn’t make a fool of himself yet again.

“I’m sorry,” Jason said. He sounded sorry. Truly regretful.

Remy pushed up, struggling into a seated position against the headboard. If they were going to have this talk, he wanted to look Jason in the eye.

Swallowing hard, Remy forced out words that had been nagging at him all day. “I’m sorry too. I got carried away. I didn’t mean to pressure you—”

“God no, Remy,” Jason interrupted. “No, no. It wasn’t like that.”

Jason’s hand hovered in the air. Remy watched Jason hesitate before resting his big palm over Remy’s thigh. The blankets formed a barrier between them, but the point of contact burned as if he could feel the warmth spilling from Jason’s hand.

“Then I’m confused,” Remy said.

“I, uh, find you very sexy,” Jason said, voice tinged with embarrassment. It would be charming if it weren’t for the heavy topic of conversation. “But I need the Wells family. I don’t talk about my parents much, but—”

“I know it’s not great,” Remy said. “Dad filled me in on what happened last summer with your mom.”

“Yeah,” Jason said. “So, basically, I’m terrified of fucking everything up. If I go there with you, I might hurt you. And if your parents or Derek find out, I’m not sure what they’d do. It’s just … messy.”

“It doesn’t have to be,” Remy said. “It’s just some fun. No strings needed. And as for going there with me, don’t you think the cat’s already out of the bag? You’ve had your hand on my dick.”

Jason glanced at Remy’s crotch, unable to resist teasing him. “Cat’s out of the bag? And here I thought pussy only referred to—”

Remy slapped his hand over Jason’s mouth. “Don’t say it!”

Jason chuckled, his warm breath gusting over Remy’s palm. Remy shivered as their eyes locked and held. When the wet tip of Jason’s tongue licked a stripe over his hand, he couldn’t hold back a small moan.

“Fuck you, JJ,” he muttered, pulling his hand back. “If you’re going to say no, don’t fucking tease me.”

“I’m not saying no,” Jason said roughly. “I probably should, but I can’t say no to you again. Not one more fucking time.”

Family drama stops this romance being too sweet

Yours For The HolidayYours For The Holiday by D.J. Jamison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this Christmas read with a little bit of family drama to stop it being too sweet.

Remy and Jason had great chemistry, I loved the banter between them and the long history of knowing each other for years. The secondary characters were nicely drawn out too and I liked the setting with its small town festive feel.

The angst wasn’t too overdrawn and it worked well to offset all the cute moments as Remy and Jason danced around each other. I’m not sure the drama with Derek worked quite as well, it seemed odd that he’d just not trust his best friend without any real evidence but that’s a minor criticism only and it didn’t spoil the story at all.

The ending was really sweet too and I believed in their HEA completely.

Lots of feels in this gorgeous romance

Locked in Silence (Pelican Bay, #1)Locked in Silence by Sloane Kennedy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sloane Kennedy sure knows how to write stories that creep up on you and wrap sneaky little arms around you waiting for the moment you need them to hand you a tissue.

She’s also brilliant at creating characters who have been bowed but never completely broken and then pairing them with a partner who is perfect at shoring up all those vulnerabilities and giving them a HEA which is both true to their narrative and believable.

This is book one in a new series which is still angsty but doesn’t have the darker side that her Protectors series does and I loved it. Both Dallas and Nolan had been hurt by life but not enough to truly give up and this almost made it a second chance romance as each had had a crush on the other at school.

The small town claustrophobia was also well depicted, as was Nolan’s fractured relationship with his mother, and the way they began to reconnect was believable.

There was less smexy times in this too, surprising for an author who excels at them, but it worked within this romance. Bring on the rest of Pelican Bay. I can’t decide who I want to read about t next, blue haired Isaac, Sawyer the vet or both of them with Dallas’ brother Maddox!

And, as always, a truly beautiful cover.

Good opener to this new Oregon setting from Annabeth Albert

Trust with a Chaser (Rainbow Cove, #1)Trust with a Chaser by Annabeth Albert

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5* stars

This is a good start to a new series from Annabeth which sees a whole host of characters set in a fictional Oregon coastal town trying to reinvent itself as an LGBTQ+ holiday destination.

I loved Mason, determined to do better than his no good family when he returned to his home town. Nash took a while to warm too but he fit his character well.

I also love a good May to December romance and there was enough of an age gap here for it to work well, Nash being nearly 40 to Mason’s 27.

There’s a small amount of angst, mostly due to Nash’s fears about coming out in a town which still thinks his hard headed father was the best Police Chief they’ve ever had, footsteps he finds it hard to walk in.

Madison’s deadbeat brother also adds to the tensions as he keeps landing his daughter on Mason without warning, which adds to the complications of their relationship.

This one is perhaps lacking a little of the lightness which I’ve found in Annabeth’s previous books but it works for this setting. There’s none of the quirky nerdism of her Gaymers series or the military banter found in the Out of Uniform books but there is still some humour.

For me though, the vandalism sub plot didn’t work at all and wasn’t really explained as to why those responsible for it would be doing it.

I did enjoy the book though and I’m looking forward to finding out more and seeing what happens with Curtis and Logan and who will be the right guy for Adam.
