Angelo Giordano and Dylan Hart are more in love than ever, but their reality is far from ideal. With Dylan working in London, and Angelo recovering from chronic illness in Cornwall, they rarely spend more than few nights under the same sky.
Dylan is struggling. Being apart from Angelo is killing him, and he’s at the end of his rope. Angelo can’t live in London anymore, but can Dylan give up his whole life and move to a place that often feels like the end of the world?
As the end of a tough year approaches, they reach a crossroads. Dylan returns to Cornwall for Christmas and Angelo can’t imagine watching him leave again. Can the love that surrounds them on Whisper Farm show them the way home?
I needed this so much right now. I prefer my Christmas MM stories to be gritty and angsty rather than sweet and fluffy. So I knew without reading the blurb than Garrett Leigh would deliver. Honestly I think that this woman writes books to suit my tastes sometimes.
This little Christmas novella is actually a sequel to Dream so no, you can’t read it as a standalone. Angelo and Dylan have reached a crossroads. Angelo thrives in Cornwall but Dylan can’t leave London. Is love going to be enough?
Crossroads might be a conclusion to the first book and it’s told from Dylan and Angelo’s POV but there are magnificent happy endings for all three couples. It includes:
-A wedding. I’m not going to tell you whose wedding but OMG!
-The hottest scene ever that includes 4 of our characters. NOT a foursome, just some exhibitionism and voyeurism.
–Relationship angst. My favorite kind.
-So much romance! So many “I love you’s”.
If this is the last book in the SKINS series, I’m left completely satisfied. All couples managed to dodge life’s curveballs, find love and get their hard won HEA. My favorite Christmas story for 2018. Recommended!
