Zach and Holland are such cool characters, very different men but they really fit together so well. I enjoyed the age difference and their personalities were really complementary to each other. You could feel their connection and i loved the details that made them become so real for me.
This is a Christmas story and i must say that all the details about the floats and the coordination of the parade was really important to the feel of the story.
i highly recommend reading this delightful story.
A very sweet romance with minimal angst and a happy ever after. The secondary characters were a great supporting cast as well. A nice Christmas story that can be read all year for a mood lifter!
First, I really loved Amy's new Christmas novel, Christmas Lane. It has a great story, cute characters (especially Zach), a great HEA. I loved the May/December story between Zach and Holland. I was really into this novel as I read it..
BUT... I felt that it was just lacking a major aspect: there is no on-page sex in the novel. Now.. its not that a book needs to have a descriptive sex scene to be good (or to get 4-5 stars from me) but as I read through the book and Zach kept talking about how bad his previous sexual encounters had been, I kept waiting for the scene where Holland and Zach make love and Zach learns what sex can truly be like. But no.... all it gets is one "throwaway" sentence at the start of a chapter and everything is solved. I just felt like there was a huge hole in the story.
If this was YA (young adult) novel, that would have been fine, and expected. But in a novel marketed as an adult MM romance, TO ME, it just left me wanting more.
Zach is a recent college graduate and he’s ready to find a job that doesn’t include working at his family’s restaurant with his sister as his boss. Holland is fifteen years older, has bounced from job to job trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life and is attracted to man who he once taught in primary school. They are thrust together when Zach gets put in charge of the town Christmas parade and Holland is building a float and eventually more.
Holland was kind. In a way you wouldn’t expect people to be any more. As their relationship progressed, Holland talked to Zach about what he wanted and needed. Zach is portrayed as a possibly Ace, but more like demisexual (In my opinion). And Holland respects that. Eventually they progress to more. Their kisses were pretty swoon worthy. There isn’t any on-screen sex scenes, but it worked for their story. They didn’t need explicit scenes.
Zach was a cautious when it came to Holland. How could he, of all people, be what Holland is looking for in a partner? Especially, when Holland dated men like Mika and Clark in the past. Zach has his quirks and Holland lets him do his thing. I loved that. He didn’t tease Zach for having multiple calendars or having certain ways he did things. They supported each other. I found it adorable that Holland took care of Zach in the little ways he could.
Through all the issues that crop up like ex-boyfriends, roofs caving in, endless car trouble, and figuring Christmas out, Zach and Holland make it through it all.
Another plus, the secondary characters were just as engaging as Zach and Holland were. I have secret hopes that Dev and Clark might get their story told next. This is definitely a holiday read that I will be revisiting yearly.
