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.
The Christmas Deal is a steamy holiday gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring fake boyfriends, bisexual awakening, a clueless single dad with an angry preteen, and of course a happy ending.
Fun and filthy and sweet and sexy as all get out.
To be honest, I didn’t like Logan at first. I get that his life was total crap, but he just seemed like a jerk. But the more I got to know him and his story, the more I liked him and felt badly for the hand he was dealt in life.
Seth was pretty adorable in that “I don’t even know how adorable I am” way. He deals with his crappy situation a by pretending to be happy.
Seth and Logan both need each other for different things- and Logan’s sister offers the perfect solution. Fake boyfriends for the holidays. Add in a teen going through his OWN crap, an overly friendly boss from Texas and a small group of people helping to pull this off, and you actually get a good story that isn’t totally cliche.
Religion did a number on Seth and his views on sex. He isn’t really a prude, he just doesn’t really know better. But let me tell you, Logan knows better. **fans self** He has the filthiest mouth I think I have ever read in a book. And he doesn’t do it to embarrass Seth, but to show him how awesome sex can be.
There was depth to the story, the heart breaking stories of Logan, Seth AND Logan’s stepson had me in tears more than once. I really loved how each of them helped the others to at least partially overcome their past.
Did I mention Logan’s filthy mouth? Ya. That.
We get not only a happily ever after (how could you not in a Christmas themed book?) and a 5 year jump epilogue which was super satisfying.
