It’s not easy for Spenser Roland to admit it, but he needs help. Christmas is just a few days away, and he can’t face the idea of showing up to his family’s gathering alone … again. They want to see him happily settled, but Spenser doesn’t date. He can’t risk it if he wants to protect his family. But one unexpected night with Evan Scott has him thinking that maybe he can strike a deal that will make his family happy and give him a little holiday cheer as well.

Evan never should have accepted a ride home from the sexy-as-hell corporate executive, but he’s proud that he stuck to his guns. He’s done with the one-night stand game. He wants something real. Something that lasts. But when Spenser returns, asking him to pose as his boyfriend over the weekend at a Christmas celebration, Evan is sure he’s lost his mind.

But he can’t say no.

Maybe it’s the shadow of loneliness in Spenser’s bright blue eyes that’s too much like his own. Or maybe it’s his heart-stopping smile.

Either way, Evan knows he’s on thin ice with Spenser, risking his own rules and heart, but Spenser is worth the risk.

I normally don’t start reading Christmas books until at least after Thanksgiving. But this is Jocelynn Drake, author of the Unbreakable Bonds series and one of my favorite books of 2016, Shatter.

So, an exception was made and I dove in for some Christmas cheer.

Spencer is your stereotypical gay millionaire with no time for dating or romance. He picks up men in bars for one-night-stand sex. And nothing else.

Evan is a man with a broken heart, for more reasons than one, who is SO OVER the one night stand business that he refuses Spencer’s charming and sexy advances. Spencer is surprised that someone would turn him down (he’s handsome, sexy, charming, rich, etc.) so Evan becomes a project for him.

Skip ahead a few days and Spencer has Evan agreeing to spend the weekend with Spencer’s family, posing as his boyfriend.

So, you’ve probably heard this plot before. I have and thought I would be a bit bored with a fake-boyfriend Christmas story where the family members are utterly delightful and everyone has a lovely time. But, again, this is Jocelynn Drake, Queen of dirty talk and passion. And she brings it with the dirty talk. And the passion.

I’ve found it enjoyable to slide my fingers through soft, long hair. To tighten my fingers in it as you’re down on your knees before me, your mouth sliding back and forth over my cock. Or maybe you’re pinned against the wall, my hand in your hair, pulling your head to the side as I lick and suck my way up your neck while I stroke your dick until you come apart beneath me.


Oh yeah!

Leave your angst behind, don’t expect a deep plot or car chases or werewolves and enjoy the sexy early holiday gift from Ms. Drake.


PS: Since this is my first review since the 2016 election, I have to get this off my chest. Fuck Trump.
