Christmas is a time for giving, not lusting after your brother’s best mate.

Finn’s never had the Christmas of his dreams, and this year isn’t shaping up to be much better. Then he rents his spare room out to Jasper, and life begins to look up.

Laid back Jasper is nothing like Finn expects. He’s hot, sweet, and easy to talk to. Finn could easily fall for him. But, he’s his brother’s best friend. He’s off limits, and Finn would never break that sacred rule…right?

Jasper’s carried a torch for his best mate’s brother for years. Living with him sparks an old flame to light, and the more time they spend together, the brighter it burns. Finn is gorgeous and kind. He’s everything Jasper has ever wanted.

But he’s also scarred by old wounds, and reluctant to let his guard down again. Friendship blooms, and for a short while, it’s enough. But the fire between them is undeniable. Finn can fight it as much as he likes.

He won’t win.

A Christmas Break is a festive MM romance. Expect: a swoony best friend’s brother, old friendships that fast turn to love, sweet roommate romance, and lots of naughty rescue cats.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love it when Annabelle does a festive romance, this one’s an absolute delight.

Brother’s best friend, five years younger and just back from travelling, is where it’s at and I loved both Jasper and Finn big time.

This is a sort of New Age romance, Finn is 26, Jasper just gone 21, and both felt true to that.

There’re sparks from the off, but Finn’s just getting over a damaging ex and Jasper’s not sure where he’s going now he’s back after a year’s trip around the world.

As is usually the case with Annabelle, there’s a strong British feel, great secondary characters and some cute animals to help drive the plot.

Add in a cheerleading squad of family members and Finn’s best friend Christian, and it’s no wonder these two end up house sharing.

I really liked that this wasn’t a straight up friends with benefits turned serious plot. Yes, they’re both hugely attracted to the other, but there’re realistic obstacles that need working through.

All in all, a cracking good read and perfect for enjoying with a cup of the hot chocolate Jasper is so fond of!

Cara Dee shows once again why she’s an auto-buy author for me

We Have Till Dawn by Cara Dee

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely exceptional book.

I have no clue how to sum up this book because, on the face of it, it’s pretty straightforward.

Two men meet due to a paid professional engagement and end up falling in love.

But it’s so much more than that. It’s about finding a new way to live, it’s about boundaries, the ones we set ourselves and the ones society imposes on those it deems ‘different’.

It’s about family and a sense of place, New York is as much a character here as Nicky and Gideon are.

And it’s about love. It’s about the way love gives people strength, support, encouragement and a safe harbour in which to explore and grow.

I loved Nicky, his warm heart, his unfailing ability to take care of others, his openness and willingness to let someone else take charge.

Gideon though, oh I fell for him just as hard as Nicky did. I think, from my own experiences with people with Asperger’s, that Cara Dee gave Gideon a realism and a completely believable personality that never wavered into stereotypes.

He is wholly representative of a neuro diverse personality but not a caricature.

I loved everything about this romance. And oh boy is it seriously hot, oh my lawd there’s chemistry and sexual explosions all over the place!
