Will fake boyfriends become the real deal this holiday?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year—except ex-Marine Logan is jobless and getting evicted. Worse, he’s a new single dad with a stepson who hates him. A kid needs stability—not to mention presents under the tree—and Logan’s desperate.

Then he meets lonely Seth and makes a deal.

Can Logan temporarily pretend to be live-in boyfriends to increase Seth’s chances at a promotion? If it provides a roof over their heads for the holidays, hell yeah. Logan considers himself straight—he doesn’t count occasional hookups with guys—but he can fake it. Besides, with his shy little smile, Seth is surprisingly sexy.

Make that damn sexy.

Shocked that Seth has only been with one man, Logan can’t resist sweetening their deal to teach him the joys of casual sex. No strings attached. No feelings. No kissing.

No falling for each other.

Easy, right?

The Christmas Deal is a steamy holiday gay romance novel from Keira Andrews featuring fake boyfriends, bisexual awakening, a clueless single dad with an angry preteen, and of course a happy ending.

I just love books like this. Two people pretending to be in a relationship only for the pretend to turn to something very real. But Keira Andrews threw in a little more drama by having one of the two men have a step son that he is now a single parent too. But it is just so much more then that, this definitely a book that you need to read. I loved every minute of this book!! It is definitely one of those books that breaks your heart but also puts you back together again as well.

Logan is at a point that he feels no matter what, nothing is going right. He was hurt and now recovered from an accident at his previous job with the railroad. But because of the accident, he cannot get a job anywhere else. To make matters worse, while recovering in the hospital he had a whirl wind romance and got married. His wife and him knew that it was not going to work between them once he was home from the hospital and recovering well. When they decided to end the marriage, it is also the night that his wife passed away unexpectedly leaving him with his step son that hates him. So life has not been easy for Logan and seemingly to get worse by the minute.

Seth is in a rut. He moved in order to get a promotion but he did not expect to have his boyfriend of many years decide to end things. So for the past year it has been just him. Now that the new owner of the company has decided to make a surprise visit and make that promotion finally happen, Seth could not be happier. Only catch is, Angela, is very family oriented and likes to promote those that have a family first. So when Jenna, Seth’s best friend, comes up with a fake fiancé and son, Jenna’s brother Logan and step so Connor, Seth is blown away.

Seth never expected to actually run into Logan right as the lie took hold with the new owner Angela but that is exactly what happens. Seth just knew he was going to be thrown under the bus right then but that is not what happened. Instead Logan played along and in the end both men came to a mutual agreement. Seth gives alogan and Connor a place to live through the Christmas holidays and Logan will pretend to be his fiancé for his boss.

But what happens when the fake starts to become more? How will Connor handle all of this? Can two men, one who is straight, find there way through this maze they have created or will someone end up hurt in the end?

This was such a great read. But be ready for some tears because there will definitely be some of those while reading this book. This is definitely one of those books that hits you in the heart. It is also a highly recommended read!!! I loved it!!

Galley copy of The Christmas Deal provided by KA Books in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
