The greatest gift might be what they already have.

After years away building his career, event planner Sebastian Chesnut returns to his small hometown of Fir Falls to reconnect with his mother, sister, and young nieces before his job takes him to London.

He doesn’t expect to find his high school boyfriend, Matty, has become a virtual member of Seb’s family. Back then, Matty only offered a casual relationship, but Seb fell hard, and history is soon repeating itself. Seb’s afraid to hope for a second chance, no matter how much they’ve grown and despite the family they share. Instead, he focuses on creating a last perfect holiday, which won’t be easy with his sister’s ex planning to take the girls over Christmas.

Seb and Matty might not know what to do about their feelings for each other, but one thing’s for sure—it won’t be Christmas without the kids. Can these star-crossed lovers pull off a holiday miracle?

What a sweet love story. I love a good read when there is little drama and a lot of love. That is exactly how you would describe this book. Then you throw in the rest of the family and you have a great Christmas love story!!!

Sebastian has not been home in many years. He believed that by providing for his mom, sister, and sisters two girls was most important but this year he is going home for a month before he takes a job transfer that will take him to London for three years. When he gets home and comes face to face from someone from his past, Seb is blown away. What makes it even more unnerving is evidently said person is now a part of his family.

Matt has not seen Sebastian since they broke up right out of high school. Now that Matt is basically part of Seb’s family because of being best friends with Seb’s sister, he is about to see Seb again. Matt cannot understand what has been so important to keep Seb away for so long but really it is not his business.

At first things are extremely awkward between Seb and Matt but the more time they are around one another the more the old feelings start to arise again. Seb has already had his heart broken once by Matt, so he is not going to let that happen again. Instead Seb decides he can handle the whole friends with benefits. Or at least he can until he can’t and feelings start to interfere.

How will Matt react when he finds out about Seb’s job transfer? Will Seb decide to stay or will he carry on with his plan to move? How will Seb’s family react when they find out about his transfer?

This was a good read with very little drama. I really enjoyed all the different aspects of this book. It is such a sweet romance. Definitely a great Holiday Read!!!

Galley copy of Santa’s Last Gift provided by Dreamspinner Press 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.
